the #revolution of #virtualreality and #augmentedreality will, like all #bleedingedge technologies, change everything. once the #IOT can cross the digital divide we will start to experience #lifejimbutnotasweknowit
To others they are another in a long list of interesting but unpractical ideas not too dissimilar to the ubiquitous flying car. They're called neuromorphic..
the I/O bottleneck in #neuromorphic design is not dissimilar to the concept of #cognitivebandwidth in #shorttermmemory #stm - architectural advances in this area may offer us a different perspective on how we process and distribute our knowledge
"The human mind has evolved a symbiosis that links brain development to cognitive networks whose properties can change radically. Critical mental capabilities, such as language and symbol-based thinking (as in mathematics) are made possible only by evolving distributed systems."
Professor Barabási's talk described how the tools of network science can help understand the Web's structure, development and weaknesses. The Web is an information network, in which the nodes are documents (at the time of writing over one trillion of them), connected by links. Other well-known network structures include the Internet, a physical network where the nodes are routers and the links are physical connections, and organizations, where the nodes are people and the links represent communications.
What will the world look like in the future? This infographis tells us what the future holds for the science and tech world.
Our friends at Information Is Beautiful Studio have compiled 38 predictions about the future of tech, science, and humanity in general — with an educated guess as to their odds of actually becoming reality. There are predictions for all kinds of tastes: your computer will have a sense of smell, Pinterest will be bought by Google, the appearance of the first human clones, the territory of the moon will be claimed by China, and many more.
Inviting artificial intelligence into our bodies has appeal – but it also carries certain risks.I have often wondered what it would be like to rid myself of a keyboard for data entry, and a computer…...
"What happens if you give a thousand Motorola Zoom tablet PCs to Ethiopian kids who have never even seen a printed word? Within five months, they'll start teaching themselves English while circumventing the security on your OS to customize settings and activate disabled hardware. Whoa."
Every time Uber, the Web-based taxi intermediary, enters a new city, it provokes controversy about its race-to-the-bottom business practices and bullying of regulators and politicians. The problem with Uber and other network-based intermediaries...

Not only are machines rapidly catching up to - and exceeding - humans in terms of raw computing power, they are also starting to do things that we used to consider inherently human. They can feel emotions like regret. They can daydream.
A scholar committed to the digital humanities once summed up his long-term strategy for winning their acceptance with a terse, sardonic comment. “We will advance,” he said, “funeral by funeral.” It's the kind of sentiment that's often felt, but seldom so well expressed -- or so brutally.

"Each school day, millions of students move in unison from classroom to classroom where they listen to 50- to 90-minute lectures. Despite there being anywhere from 20 to 300 humans in the room, there is little actual interaction. This model of education is so commonplace that we have accepted it as a given. For centuries, it has been the most economical way to “educate” a large number of students. Today, however, we know about the limitations of the class lecture, so why does it remain the most common format?"
