There's a new robot video out, and the tech press is swooning as always. "Whoa!" whoops IEEE Spectrum. WebProNews calls it "a galloping terror." It will "chase you down and haunt your dreams," Business Insider shudders.

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.

I initially thought this was a photo of a real art installation reflecting on the the objectification of women. It is not. It's a computer generated cutaway of a futuristic sex robot made by French 3D artist Cesar Vonc. After seeing this, I don't think I would be able to get aroused by a sex robot ever become available

Comment la langue devint (un peu) structurée ?

Comment la langue devint (un peu) structurée ? | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

Les constructions culturelles humaines — notamment les langues — disposent souvent de régularités frappantes. La grammaire, par exemple, malgré ses nombreuses exceptions, permet de donner une image de notre langue en un (relativement) petit nombre de règles. Pourtant, la grammaire a été inventée après coup, pour rendre compte de la réalité d’une langue dont les développements sont plus ou moins aléatoires, résultant de la participation de tous, et cela de manière erratique.

Le PLUS. "L'intelligence artificielle pourrait mettre fin à la race humaine." Ces propos, de l'astrophysicien Stephen Hawking, ont de quoi interpeller.

Deep neural network rivals primate brain in object recognition

A new study from MIT neuroscientists has found that for the first time, one of the latest generation of “deep neural networks” matches the ability of the primate brain to recognize objects during a brief glance.

Because these neural networks were designed based on neuroscientists’ current understanding of how the brain performs object recognition, the success of the latest networks suggests that neuroscientists have a fairly accurate grasp of how object recognition works, says James DiCarlo, a professor of neuroscience and head of MIT’s Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences and the senior author of a paper describing the study in the Dec. 18 issue of the open-access journal PLoS Computational Biology.

Should we criminalise robotic rape and robotic child sexual abuse?

Should we criminalise robotic rape and robotic child sexual abuse? | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
I recently published an unusual article. At least, I think it is unusual. It imagines a future in which sophisticated sex robots are used to replicate acts of rape and child sexual abuse, and then asks whether such acts should be criminalised. In the article, I try to provide a framework for evaluating the issue, but I do so in what I think is a provocative fashion. I present an argument for thinking that such acts should be criminalised, even if they have no extrinsically harmful effects on others. I know the argument is going to be unpalatable to some, and I myself balk at its seemingly anti-liberal/anti-libertarian dimensions, but I thought it was sufficiently interesting to be worth spelling out in some detail. Hence why I wrote the article.

#22: Ray Kurzweil on Rationality and the Moral Considerability of Intelligent Machines

#22: Ray Kurzweil on Rationality and the Moral Considerability of Intelligent Machines | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
In his new work, How to Create a Mind [HCM], Ray Kurzweil reflects on the moral considerability of intelligent machines. He believes that in the near future we will be confronted with machines that have cognitive abilities and emotive expressions that closely emulate those of humanB beings. (I use the term “HumanB” and its cognates to designate biological humanity and the term “HumanM” and its cognates to designate moral humanity, i.e., persons). The issue for him is whether we humanB beings will be able to identify morally with non-humanB artificial persons that do not have a biological existence.
