A Magna Carta for the web

A Magna Carta for the web | Global Brain | Scoop.it

Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web 25 years ago. So it’s worth a listen when he warns us: There’s a battle ahead. Eroding net neutrality, filter bubbles and centralizing corporate control all threaten the web’s wide-open spaces. It’s up to users to fight for the right to access and openness. The question is, What kind of Internet do we want?

Alessio Erioli's curator insight, August 25, 6:25 AM

Although there are some oversimplifications here and there (like the whole thing on creativity as confined in "artistic" jobs and the excluson of the possibility of enhancing human abilities) but the video has a point on inevitability and increasing obsolescence (in absence of adaptation). So, horses became obsolete and unemployable because they reached their adaptability limit. What is the limit of a human being that can enhance and evolve faster right through technology? Or, to put it in Kevin Kelly's words: what is the tipping point at which the ability of technology to alter us AND itself overcomes our ability to alter it?

By 2025, ‘sexbots will be commonplace’ – which is just fine, as we’ll all be unemployed and bored thanks to robots stealing our jobs | ExtremeTech | Global Brain | Scoop.it
According to a new report that looks at how continuing improvements to artificial intelligence and robotics will impact society, 'robotic sex partners will become commonplace' by 2025. A large portion of the report also focuses on how AI and robotics will impact both blue- and white-collar workers, with about 50% of the polled experts stating that robots will displace more human jobs than they create by 2025.
