The Singularitarian: Exponential Ad Astra!

The Singularitarian: Exponential Ad Astra! | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

 

I once argued, in an article published in South Africa back in 2005 and entitled, "ISU: Space Education For The Next Generation", that with the continuous research and advancements in fields such as "nanotechnology, mobile Internet and space technology," and in other fields such as biotechnology, energy and artificial intelligence that the "world will get smaller." I further theorized that "cultures will systematically merge" and greater opportunities will be availed to nations around the world to become inclusively international in this emerging "globally smaller world." Not many places on Earth have this assertion yet it seems so feasible. This belief is supported at Singularity University.

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.

We're Entering a Golden Era of Quantum Computing Research - A Smarter Planet Blog

We're Entering a Golden Era of Quantum Computing Research - A Smarter Planet Blog | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
By Mark Ritter In 1981, Nobel Prize winner Richard Feynman challenged computer scientists to develop a new breed of computers based on quantum physics. Ever since then, scientists have been grappling with the difficulty of attaining such a grand challenge. Employing quantum physics for computation is difficult in part because quantum information is very fragile, …

Futuristic Simulation Finds Self-Driving "Taxibots" Will Eliminate 90% Of Cars, Open Acres Of... - The Ferenstein Wire - Medium

A fascinating new simulation finds that self-driving cars will terraform cities: 90% of cars will be eliminated, acres of land will open up, and commute times will drop 10%. A team of transportation scientists at the Organization for Cooperation and Development took data on actual trips in Lisbon, Portugal and looked at how a fleet of self-driving, shared “taxibots” would change city landscape [PDF].

Stanford to host 100-year study on artificial intelligence

Stanford to host 100-year study on artificial intelligence | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

Stanford University has invited leading thinkers from several institutions to begin a 100-year effort to study and anticipate how the effects of artificial intelligence will ripple through every aspect of how people work, live and play.

This effort, called the One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence, or AI100, is the brainchild of computer scientist and Stanford alumnus Eric Horvitz, who, among other credits, is a former president of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.

In that capacity, Horvitz convened a conference in 2009 at which top researchers considered advances in artificial intelligence and its influences on people and society, a discussion that illuminated the need for continuing study of AI's long-term implications.
