Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques
Les Post-Sapiens sont le résultat de formes émergentes se dégageant petit à petit des multiples avatars que l'homme adopte de nos jours, du fait notamment de l'influence qu'exerce sur son évolution les nouvelles sciences et technologies.

La Singularité technologique

La Singularité technologique | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

C’est une période future au cours de laquelle le rythme du changement technologique sera tellement rapide, son impact si important, que la vie humaine en sera transformée de façon irréversible. Bien qu’elle ne soit ni utopique ni dystopique, cette époque transformera les concepts sur lesquels nous nous fondons pour donner un sens à nos vies, des modèles de marché au cycle de la vie humaine incluant même la mort. Comprendre la Singularité modifiera notre perspective sur la signification de notre passé et sur les ramifications de notre futur. Cette théorie est le fruit d’une longue maturation de différentes intuitions de scientifiques de tous bords. Les prémices de cette Singularité se dessinent dans les années 1960 pendant lesquelles le scientifique Irvin John Good prédit l’explosion de l’intelligence, notamment par le biais de machines intelligentes qui seront capables de concevoir leur descendant sans intervention humaine.

Quelques définitions d'approches face aux développements technologiques.

Thierry Curty's comment, August 12, 2:26 AM
Je rappelle juste que notre génération, qui existe en se raccrochant aux branches "des concepts sur lesquels nous nous fondons pour donner un sens à nos vies, des modèles de marché au cycle de la vie humaine incluant même la mort" n'est pas concernée par cette singularité qui deviendra prégnante à la seconde moitié du siècle. Nous allons vivre son émergence, mais pas son application.

Or, la Génération Alpha, elle, va s'en accommoder très bien.

Pour envisager l'avenir, il faut se tourner vers le futur. Le passé n'est là que pour le souvenir et le présent ne fait que passer.

What kind of society are we creating? With the advent of the internet-of-things, advanced data-mining and predictive analytics, and improvements in artificial intelligence and automation, we are the verge of creating a global “neural network”: a constantly-updated, massively interconnected, control system for the world. Imagine what it will be like when every “thing” in your home, place of work, school, city, state and country is connected to a smart device?

Lowering Over All Military Budgets While Improving Kill Ratio’s by Killing Horses to Harvest their Flesh Alive (satire) | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Let's face it, a countries military is there to kill people and break things. In this world of rogue countries and terrorist states it is important for the modern nation to be able to protect its self with force and the more force the better. While this tends to make some people uncomfortable it also while critically important can prove to be expensive. I thought I would go over one project I'm familiar with that is going on that that really will help the modern nation lower military costs wi

Are we there yet? Scientists prepare for change of epoch

Scientists from around the world met this week to decide whether to call time on the Holocene epoch after 11,700 years and begin a new geological age called the Anthropocene – to reflect humankind’s deep impact on the planet.

For decades, researchers have asked whether humanity’s impact on the Earth’s surface and atmosphere mean we have entered the Anthropocene – or new human era.

“What we see is the urban phenomenon and the boom of China has a direct marking in the forms of the strata,” said John Palmesino, a London-based architect who has worked with the scientists to capture on film the impact of humans on the Earth.

Rejection of Tomorrow | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
I keep seeing and hearing cynics sigh about how far we have “fallen.” The disease is rampant, on both right and left. The striking thing to me is the inanity of cliches, like: “Isn’t it a shame that our wisdom has not kept pace with technology?” This nonsense is spouted amid the greatest transformation of diversity, inclusion, acceptance, re-evaluation and tolerance in the history of our species! At no other time were so many hoary/awful assumptions - about race-gender and so on - pilloried by light and scrutiny!

Transhumanism and law

Transhumanism and law | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Law generally falls into two incongruent categories: the natural law and the positive law. While the natural law encompasses universally accepted moral principles and social sense of justice, reflecting the zeitgeist or the spirit of time, the positive law ignores these premises, focusing instead on human-mad laws, such as statutory and common law.

Nick Bostrom’s “Superintelligence” (Part II)

Nick Bostrom’s “Superintelligence” (Part II) | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Bostrom writes that the reason A.I. scientists have failed so badly in predicting the future of their own field is that the technical difficulties have been greater than they expected. I don't think so. I think those scientists had a good understanding of what they were trying to build. The reason why "the expected arrival date [of Artificial Intelligence] has been receding at a rate of one year per year" (Nick Bostrom's estimate) is that we keep changing the definition. There never was a proper definition of what we mean by "Artificial Intelligence" and still there isn't.
