Living at a Time of Post Natural Ecologies

Living at a Time of Post Natural Ecologies | e-merging Knowledge | Scoop.it
When technologies converge from rapidly fermenting disciplines like biology, information science and nanotech, the results become hard to predict. Singularities can emerge that create outcomes we cannot always anticipate.
amleto picerno 's insight:

   

From the essay of Rachel Amstrong about her work at AVATAR (Advanced Virtual and Technological Architectural Research)   "....a range of lifelike emerging new (meta) technologies pose very different opportunities and challenges to machines (Myers and Antonelli, 2012) and work in ways that are much more like ‘life’. They possess resilience, environmental sensitivity, and adaptability, are able to deal with unpredictable events (within limits) and possess the capacity for surprise. Ultimately such convergent technologies may be able to evolve. They can and should reshape how we think about how to do the things we take for granted – so that the performance of our living spaces is not always measured in terms of mechanical efficiencies, but may relate to the qualities of experience such as, potency, or fertility."

Scientists at the Purdue University discovered that the cellulose nanocrystals have the stiffness of steel.
amleto picerno 's insight:

When the researchers tested cellulose nanocrystals during the Purdue experiment, they found that this seemingly fragile material is only 500 nanometers long, but exhibits the remarkable stiffness of 206 gigapascals – the same as steel.
