We could get to the Singularity in ten years

We could get to the Singularity in ten years | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
By extrapolating various key technology trends into the near future, in the context of the overall dramatic technological growth the human race has seen in the past centuries and millennia, it seems quite plausible that superintelligent artificial minds will be here much faster than most people think.

This sort of objective, extrapolative view of the future has its strengths, and is well worth pursuing. But I think it’s also valuable to take a more subjective and psychological view, and think about AGI and the Singularity in terms of the power of the human spirit — what we really want for ourselves, and what we can achieve if we really put our minds to it.

Hunter-gatherer past shows our fragile bones result from physical inactivity since invention of farming | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Latest analysis of prehistoric bones show there is no anatomical reason why a person born today could not develop the skeletal strength of a prehistoric forager or a modern orangutan. Findings support the idea that activity throughout life is the key to building bone strength and preventing osteoporosis risk in later years, say researchers"

Taking the grunt work out of Web development

Taking the grunt work out of Web development | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
A Web page today is the result of a number of interacting components — like cascading style sheets, XML code, ad hoc database queries, and JavaScript functions. For all but the most rudimentary sites, keeping track of how these different elements interact, refer to each other, and pass data back and forth can be a time-consuming chore.
In a paper being presented at the Association for Computing Machinery’s Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages, Adam Chlipala, the Douglas Ross Career Development Professor of Software Technology, describes a new programming language, called Ur/Web, that lets developers write Web applications as self-contained programs. The language’s compiler — the program that turns high-level instructions into machine-executable code — then automatically generates the corresponding XML code and style-sheet specifications and embeds the JavaScript and database code in the right places.

Google is a Health Tech Enterprise: 7 Ventures to Watch Entering 2015

Google is a Health Tech Enterprise: 7 Ventures to Watch Entering 2015 | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Google’s first step into the health care industry can be marked by the emergence of Google Glass in 2013, when physicians found the device useful in clinical settings. That very year, Google also created a Life and Sciences division at Google X with the intention of creating major “moonshot” health care innovations.

According to the Wall Street Journal, more than one-third of Google’s venture capital in 2014 went to health care and life science companies, reflecting a 9 percent increase from the previous two years. And that momemtum doesn’t look to slow down in the next year.

“Barring some huge calamity, we’ll see more interesting things in life sciences in 2015,” said Bill Maris, head of Google Ventures in an interview with HIT Consultant.

A Cool New Theory Explains Why Red Wine Is So Damned Good For You

A Cool New Theory Explains Why Red Wine Is So Damned Good For You | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The antioxidant resveratrol, which is found in red wine and other foods like nuts and soy, is known for its ability to decrease incidence of heart disease and other illnesses, leading some to call it the "elixir of youth." Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute now have an explanation for how it works.

Resveratrol (prounounced rez-veer-a-trole) is an organic compound found in grapes and other foods, but especially red wine. The effects of this chemical on human health have been disputed over the years, but it has been reported to extend lifespan, provide cardiovascular, anti-diabetic, and anti-cancer effects. Scientists have argued for years about how it works, but a team from SRI now claims that resveratrol activates an evolutionary defence mechanism in human cells — one that in turn protects the integrity of our DNA.

An interesting opinion/ prediction about what is awaiting those who are going to make presentations next year.

Arjun Rajagopalan's comment, December 24, 10:50 PM
No question at all, we have come a long way from having Powerpoint as the king of the heap of presentation software. The variety of options on offer, and the range of capabilities are wide, diverse and individually tailored to the needs of presenters. The day of one-package-does-it-all is over. Microsoft themselves seem to have realised it and ar pitching Sway as the successor to Powerpoint. Interesting times ahead.

What is 4D printing? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Additive manufacturing — or 3D printing — is 30 years old this year. Today, it’s found not just in industry but in households, as the price of 3D printers has fallen below US$1,000. Knowing you can print almost anything, not just marks on paper, opens up unlimited opportunities for us to manufacture toys, household appliances and tools in our living rooms.

 

Recently given the popular science name of “4D printing,” perhaps a better way to think about it is that the object transforms over time.

El úso de móviles con pantalla táctil modifica la representación de los dedos en el cerebro. Estas adaptaciones pueden ser positivas proque contribuyen a adaptar nuestro cerebro al uso de pantallas tátiles. Pero el aumento en la plasticidad puede ser también un indicador de problemas. La plasticidad cortical en quienes tocan instrumentos de cuerda se asocia con distonía (contracciones involuntarias de los músculos) y dolor crónico. Ya algunos estudios asocian el excesivo uso de los móviles a molestias como las anteriores.
