Les fils d’Héphaïstos


Depuis la naissance du système solaire il y a 4,5 milliards d’années, des mutations de tous ordres se sont enchaînées, sans jamais s’arrêter. Nous ne sommes pourtant qu’à la moitié de notre histoire, l’implosion du soleil étant prévue dans 4 milliards d’années. À quoi ressemblerons-nous d’ici là ? A un homme « augmenté » ou « réparable à l’infini »? À quelles nouvelles mutations devons-nous nous attendre ? Quels problèmes cela pose-t-il en terme de droit et d’éthique ? Comment allons-nous nous adapter au changement climatique et à la crise des énergies fossiles ? Quel habitat, quelle nourriture seront à notre disposition ? Quelle agriculture et quel modèle économique peut-on envisager ? Serons-nous obligés de vivre sur d’autres planètes ?
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.

Scientists Create Biodegradable Computer Chips

Scientists Create Biodegradable Computer Chips | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Money might not grow on trees, but soon electronic parts might. In a bid to try and make the production of electronic devices more sustainable and reduce waste, researchers have managed to develop a semiconductor chip made almost entirely out of wood. The paper is published in Nature Communications.

Donuts, math, and superdense teleportation of quantum information | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Putting a hole in the center of the donut—a mid-nineteenth-century invention—allows the deep-fried pastry to cook evenly, inside and out. As it turns out, the hole in the center of the donut also holds answers for a type of more efficient and reliable quantum information teleportation, a critical ...

Next Big Future: Graphene sponge can absorb light and emit energetic electrons for breakthrough solar sail propulsion

Next Big Future: Graphene sponge can absorb light and emit energetic electrons for breakthrough solar sail propulsion | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

The direct light propulsion of matter was observed on a macroscopic scale for the first time using a bulk graphene [graphene sponge] based material. The unique structure and properties of graphene and the morphology of the bulk graphene material make it capable of not only absorbing light at various wavelengths but also emitting energetic electrons efficiently enough to drive the bulk material following Newtonian mechanics. Thus, the unique photonic and electronic properties of individual graphene sheets are manifested in the response of the bulk state. These results offer an exciting opportunity to bring about bulk scale light manipulation with the potential to realize long-sought proposals in areas such as the solar sail and space transportation driven directly by sunlight.

Self-Healing Robot Can Adapt To Injury Within Minutes

Self-Healing Robot Can Adapt To Injury Within Minutes | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
From putting out forest fires to grabbing you a cup of coffee, robots have the potential to be hugely beneficial to humans. The problem, however, is that they seem to fall apart when they’re injured. A new study published in Nature may have just overcome this hitch by creating a robot that learns to adapt to its injuries. What could possibly go wrong?

Robots can recover from damage in minutes | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Robots will one day provide tremendous benefits to society, such as in search and rescue missions and putting out forest fires -- but not until they can learn to keep working if they become damaged. A new paper in the journal Nature, called "Robots That Can Adapt Like Animals," shows how to make robots automatically recover from injury in less than two minutes. A video of the work shows a six-legged robot that adapts to keep walking even if two of its legs are broken. It also shows a robotic arm

Aristotle, Robot Slaves, and a New Economic System

Aristotle, Robot Slaves, and a New Economic System | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Jaron Lanier’s book “Who Owns the Future?” discusses the role that technology plays in both eliminating jobs and increasing income inequality. Early in the book Lanier quotes from Aristotle’s Politics:If every instrument could accomplish its own work, obeying or anticipating the will of others, like the statues of Daedalus, or the tripods of Hephaestus, which, says the poet, “of their own accord entered the assembly of the Gods; ”if, in like manner, the shuttle would weave and the plectrum touch the lyre without a hand to guide them, chief workmen would not want servants, nor masters slaves.Aristotle saw that the human condition largely depends on what machines can and cannot do; moreover, we can imagine that machines will do much more.
