Can Our Laws Catch Up with Our Technology?

Can Our Laws Catch Up with Our Technology? | Living | Scoop.it

Technology moves quickly. By the time you get good at operating your new smartphone, odds are that it's just about obsolete. By contrast -- and by design -- almost nothing in American society moves more slowly than the law. And so as technological cycles spin ever faster, the creaky wheels of justice become more and more outdated.

American law has always recognized property as a bedrock value, and yet in this era of digital piracy, crowd-sourcing, and open-source platforms, how do we decide who gets credit ... and revenue from things we create together?

Oversharing isn't just a problem for kids posting ill-advised pictures from Friday night. Lots of software these days is programmed to "learn" from the Internet as millions of publicly available data points are downloaded, processed, and programmed into an ever-improving product.

David Hanson is the CEO of Hanson Robotics, a company that makes frighteningly lifelike robots, which, he hopes, will also one day have human-level intelligence. Hanson's team taught a robot language by letting it read thousands of hours of stories, interviews, and lectures written by the sci-fi legend Philip K. Dick ... but only after getting permission from Dick's estate.

Google Effects on Memory: Cognitive Consequences of Having Information at Our Fingertips

Google Effects on Memory: Cognitive Consequences of Having Information at Our Fingertips | Living | Scoop.it

The advent of the Internet, with sophisticated algorithmic search engines, has made accessing information as easy as lifting a finger. No longer do we have to make costly efforts to find the things we want. We can “Google” the old classmate, find articles online, or look up the actor who was on the tip of our tongue. The results of four studies suggest that when faced with difficult questions, people are primed to think about computers and that when people expect to have future access to information, they have lower rates of recall of the information itself and enhanced recall instead for where to access it. The Internet has become a primary form of external or transactive memory, where information is stored collectively outside ourselves.

How to Leverage Crowdfunding For Your Small Business

How to Leverage Crowdfunding For Your Small Business | Living | Scoop.it

Fans of crowdfunding say the resource model unlocks the ability for people who could not raise capital in the last five years to launch their dream. While high-tech projects like Pebble’s E Paper Watch, who raised $10 million on Kickstarter earlier this year and have yet to deliver one watch, come to mind when discussing crowdfunding, most of the campaigns raise less than $10,000
