A. I. and the Next American Industrial Revolution | World Future Society

A. I. and the Next American Industrial Revolution | World Future Society | FutureChronicles | Scoop.it

In the next decade, the United States will use increasingly capable artificial intelligence (AI) to greatly reduce the cost of health care, accelerate research and development into new medicines, improve cars and roads to reduce gridlock, and even regain much of the manufacturing base we lost to countries like China, say researchers in computer science, robotics, and management. They claim that AI will soon change the work of doctors, nurses and teachers across the country, create entirely new businesses, and radically remake industries already in existence.

Short Sharp Science: Cut-and-splice time cloak makes events disappear

Short Sharp Science: Cut-and-splice time cloak makes events disappear | FutureChronicles | Scoop.it

Want to steal money from a safe and get away with it? Your best bet is a time cloak, a device that can hide an event in time, making it appear as if it never happened.

The possibility of such a device was suggested in 2010 by a team led by Martin McCall of Imperial College London. Now the notion has been put into practice, with the first demonstration of a time cloak by a team led by Moti Fridman of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.

The Coming Collapse of China: 2012 Edition- By Gordon G. Chang

The Coming Collapse of China: 2012 Edition- By Gordon G. Chang | FutureChronicles | Scoop.it

In the middle of 2001, I predicted in my book, The Coming Collapse of China, that the Communist Party would fall from power in a decade, in large measure because of the changes that accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) would cause.
