How To Survive The Pre-Singularity Era: Part II: Time Is Muscle

How To Survive The Pre-Singularity Era: Part II: Time Is Muscle | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
It can be said that practitioners of emergency medicine have their own unique language. As a member of this subset of healthcare, I can unequivocally agree that we have invented pseudonyms, algorithms, protocols, expressions and even our unique brand of humour to give expression to what we do every day. Codes come in various colours- blue, black, white, yellow, orange… in order to succinctly convey an emergency in a manner that is efficient, and somewhat covert from the unsuspecting public.

» What’s the Matter with Artificial Intelligence? blog.castac.org | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

In the media these days, Artificial Intelligence (henceforth AI) is making a comeback. Kevin Drum wrote a long piece for Mother Jones about what the rising power of intelligent programs might mean for the political economy of the United States: for jobs, capital-labor relations, and the welfare state. He worries that as computer programs become more intelligent day by day, they will be put to more and more uses by capital, thereby displacing white-collar labor. And while this may benefit both capital and labor in the long run, the transition could be long and difficult, especially for labor, and exacerbate the already-increasing inequality in the United States. (For more in the same vein, here’s Paul Krugman, Moshe Vardi, Noah Smith, and a non-bylined Economist piece.)

Meet CUPID: The Drone That Will Shoot You With an 80,000 Volt Taser

Meet CUPID: The Drone That Will Shoot You With an 80,000 Volt Taser | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Are drones not scary enough for you yet? How about this? A drone helicopter that spots you and identifies you as an intruder. It tells you to stop and put your hands behind your head. Instead, you keep coming. The drone then shoots you with barbed Taser darts that pump 80,000 volts into you. If you try to get up, it will continue pumping voltage into you until you submit and the authorities arrive.

Machine consciousness: Fact or fiction? | Robohub

Machine consciousness: Fact or fiction? | Robohub | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

My workday is over. What do I want to do now? I picture calling my wife to suggest dinner at that nice Italian restaurant and imagine the taste of gnocchi quattro formaggi. Then I remember promising to look after the grandchildren that evening. My colleague at the desk next to me has no idea of this rich world unfolding in my head. This is the world that I call my consciousness, my mental state, my mind, or my thoughts. It is comfortably private, and I cannot imagine having an intelligent life without it. My behavior and pronouncements are but the tip of the iceberg that is my consciousness. Is this consciousness something that can be replicated? In our quest to build smarter computers and robots, will we one day develop machines that have an internal mental life comparable to our own?

Future Fiction: Uploaded Transmission (Part 2) - SERIOUS WONDER | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

On the Intergalactic Space Station, there is no such thing as night or day – only the cold; only darkness. To conserve energy, given their distance from the closest sun, the crew has to maintain limited station activity at all times, especially when most the crew is asleep. For Dr. Harry Boyd, however, it is the only time he can acquire answers to questions Captain “Rex” Mitchell would rather keep in the dark.
