[VIDEO] Michio Kaku: Tweaking Moore's Law and the Computers of the POST-Silicon Era

What's beyond silicon? There have been a number of proposals: protein computers, DNA computers, optical computers, quantum computers, molecular computers. Dr. Michio Kaku says "if I were to put money on the table I would say that in the next ten years as Moore's Law slows down, we will tweak it.

The End of the Web, Search, and Computer as We Know It

The End of the Web, Search, and Computer as We Know It | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

People ask what the next web will be like, but there won’t be a next web.

 

The space-based web we currently have will gradually be replaced by a time-based worldstream. It’s already happening, and it all began with the lifestream, a phenomenon that I (with Eric Freeman) predicted in the 1990s and shared in the pages of Wired almost exactly 16 years ago.

 

This lifestream — a heterogeneous, content-searchable, real-time messaging stream — arrived in the form of blog posts and RSS feeds, Twitter and other chatstreams, and Facebook walls and timelines. Its structure represented a shift beyond the “flatland known as the desktop” (where our interfaces ignored the temporal dimension) towards streams, which flow and can therefore serve as a concrete representation of time.

Machine Beauty and Our Bionic Future

Machine Beauty and Our Bionic Future | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Welcome to the brave new world of Machine Beauty, where our new willingness to replace our limbs with superior prosthetic devices hints at our technological future as a species. Maybe futurist Ray Kurzweil was right after all when he predicted the merging of man and machine within our lifetime as part of the great Singularity.

To See The Future Of Technology, Look At The People Using It For Crime | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it
In this video from our Futurist Forum, Jamais Cascio says that the people hacking a tech to make it serve more shady purposes (or to help them have sex) might be the best window into how it works.

Why Curation Is Important for Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons, Tools and Resources

Why Curation Is Important for Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons, Tools and Resources | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Is Curation the new search?  Robin Good proposes that it is.  I believe that we do trust some people more than some algorithms.  This is a very interesting article about how curation can shape education.  

Ken

 

 

Robin Good: Content curation will play a major role both in the way we "teach" and in the way we educate ourselves on any topic. When and where it will be adopted, it will deeply affect many key aspects of the educational ecosystem.

 

This article, builds up over my recent presentation on Content Curation for Education that I delivered at Emerge2012 virtual conference.

 

In that presentation I claimed that the adoption of "curation approaches" will directly affect the way competences are taught, how textbooks are put together, how students are going to learn about a subject, and more than anything, the value that can be generated for "others" through a personal learning path.

 

If we learn not by memorizing facts, but by collaborating with others in the creation of a meaningful collection-explanations of specific topics/issues/events then, for the first time in history, we can enrich planetary knowledge each time we take on a new learning task.

 

And it's already happening.

 

Yes, we are only at the very early stages, but, in my humble opinion, there are enough signs and indications that this is not going to be something marginal.

 

In this article I outline ten key factors, already at work, which, among others, will very likely pave the way for a much greater and rapid adoption of curation practices in the educational / academic world.

Now that everyone loves them, early adopters and forward thinkers want to know what is next for the infographic. Is this just the beginning of a visual revolution, or have they already jumped the shark?
