We Should Consider The Future World As One Of Multi-Species Intelligence

We Should Consider The Future World As One Of Multi-Species Intelligence | Global Brain | Scoop.it
Considering machines that think is a nice step forward in the AI debate as it departs from our own human-based concerns, and accords machines otherness in a productive way. It causes us to consider the other entity’s frame of reference. However, even more importantly this questioning suggests a large future possibility space for intelligence.

Researchers take Vital Step toward Creating Bionic Brain

Researchers take Vital Step toward Creating Bionic Brain | Global Brain | Scoop.it
Researchers have mimicked the way the human brain processes information with the development of an electronic long-term memory cell, which mirrors the brain’s ability to simultaneously process and store multiple strands of information. The development brings them closer to imitating key electronic aspects of the human brain — a vital step toward creating a bionic brain and unlocking treatments for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

Self-Driving Trucks Are Going to Hit Us Like a Human-Driven Truck

Self-Driving Trucks Are Going to Hit Us Like a Human-Driven Truck | Global Brain | Scoop.it
Late last year, I took a road trip with my partner from our home in New Orleans, Louisiana to Orlando, Florida and as we drove by town after town, we got to talking about the potential effects self-driving vehicle technology would have not only on truckers themselves, but on all the local economies dependent on trucker salaries. Once one starts wondering about this kind of one-two punch to America’s gut, one sees the prospects aren’t pretty.

We are ignoring the new machine age at our peril

We are ignoring the new machine age at our peril | Global Brain | Scoop.it
Could sudden shifts in technology soon be coming over here and taking jobs?
Spaceweaver's insight:

"Last September, Dr Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael Osborne, two researchers at the Martin School in Oxford, published the results of a major study of the susceptibility of jobs to this new kind of automation. Their report, The Future of Employment: How Susceptible Are Jobs to Computerisation?, makes for a pretty sobering read. Frey and Osborne used machine-learning techniques to estimate the probability of computerisation for 702 detailed occupations, based on US government classifications of those occupations. Their conclusion? About 47% of total US employment is at risk from technologies now operational in laboratories and in the field."
