Des robots de bulles d’air | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Des robots microscopriques, une simple bulle d'air dirigée grâce à un laser. C'est peut-être ça le futur de la nanobiologie.

En robotique, il y a les plus grands, les plus gros, les plus forts, les Transformers, et les plus petits, les “nanobots”. Capables de s’insérer partout, y compris dans le corps humain. Ceux-ci sont simplissimes, une bulle d’air… et un laser.

Local view: Should we sacrifice our brains to the Internet? | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Facebook recently celebrated its 900 millionth member. Now one in every eight human beings is virtually connected to an average of 245 “friends” through Facebook. Since its inception in 2004, Facebook has almost literally swallowed MySpace and other social-media applications. The crowned king of all social media, Mark Zuckerberg, has received his share of attention, like a cover on Time magazine and the movie, “The Social Network.”

The Technological Elimination of Pain is Both Feasible and Desirable

The Technological Elimination of Pain is Both Feasible and Desirable | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
I love lots of things about being alive and being human — but pain isn’t one of them. Put crudely, pain really sucks. It’s just not a pleasant thing. I’d really rather do away with it.

The singularity was here – did you miss it?

The singularity was here – did you miss it? | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
I buy into most of what Ray Kurzweil says about the singularity.  If you aren’t already familiar with that term as used by Ray and others, the premise is this:

By many measures, technology advances exponentially. If you plot out a graph what you see is a very long tail hovering just above the x axis. Next comes a sharp curve up after which the line goes vertical. If the x axis represents time, the singularity is the point at which the line goes vertical. The next day, everything is different.

The Singularity Movement, Immortality, and Removing the Ghost in the Machine

For those who may regard movies such as The Matrix and Ghost in the Shell as mere science fiction, picking up the latest issue of TIME just might shake up these assumptions a bit. Entitled 2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal, the cover illustration for the February 21 edition portrays a human with a shaved head plugged into the Internet – literally. On the back of this person’s head is an embedded terminal plug for the purpose of connecting with the Internet; the same as Neo in The Matrix or any one of the “cyberized” characters in Ghost in the Shell.
