Humans With Amplified Intelligence Could Be More Powerful Than AI | Education Technology | Scoop.it
With much of our attention focused the rise of advanced artificial intelligence, few consider the potential for radically amplified human intelligence (IA). It’s an open question as to which will come first, but a technologically boosted brain could be just as powerful — and just as dangerous – as AI.

A Wikipedia for robots | KurzweilAI

A Wikipedia for robots | KurzweilAI | Education Technology | Scoop.it
(

European scientists from six institutes and two universities have developed an online platform where robots can learn new skills from each other worldwide — a kind of “Wikipedia for robots.”

The objective is to help develop robots better at helping elders with caring and household tasks.

“The problem right now is that robots are often developed specifically for one task”, says René van de Molengraft, TU/e researcher and RoboEarth project leader.

“RoboEarth simply lets robots learn new tasks and situations from each other. All their knowledge and experience are shared worldwide on a central, online database.”

The Serval Mesh - Android Apps on Google Play

The Serval Mesh - Android Apps on Google Play | Education Technology | Scoop.it

Help us to make mobile phones go the extra mile during disasters by joining our indiegogo campaign; http://igg.me/at/speakfreely.

Mobile phones normally can't be used when cellular networks fail, for example during a disaster. This means that millions of vulnerable people around the world are deprived of the ability to communicate, when they need it most.

We have spent the past three years working with the New Zealand Red Cross to create a solution. We call it the Serval Mesh, and it is free software that allows smart-phones to communicate, even in the face of catastrophic failure of cellular networks.

It works by using your phone's Wi-Fi to communicate with other phones on the same network. Or even by forming impromptu networks consisting only of mobile phones. Mesh communications is an appropriate technology for complementing cellular networks. Think of it like two-way radio or CB radio that has been propelled into the 21st century. For truly long-range communications you will still need to make use of cellular or fixed telephone networks or the internet.

This software allows you to easily make private phone calls, send secure text messages and share files in caves, in subways, in the Outback, in Australia or Africa, in Europe or the United States -- even when cellular networks fail or are unavailable.

You can also keep using your existing phone number on the mesh, which is really important in a disaster when people are trying to get back in contact with each other.

7 ways games reward the brain

We're bringing gameplay into more aspects of our lives, spending countless hours -- and real money -- exploring virtual worlds for imaginary treasures. Why?
Bettina Ascaino's insight:

Tom Chatfield has some really inspiring ideas about the gamification of everyday life, and I think that when he expands upon these ideas they have a lot of potential to improve our lives quite dramatically. In a talk that he gave at HowTheLightGetsIn Philosophy festival in the UK, he goes into a bit more detail about how these new technologies can allow us to thrive.
