Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques
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.

You Have Already Complied: RoboCop and the All-Too-Feasible Horror of Brain Hacking

In science fiction films, science tends to play the villain. Speculative theories and far-fetched technology wear the old black hat and outsize mustache, and tie us all kicking and screaming to the train tracks. These are adventure stories, ultimately, so why not set cloned dinosaurs and predatory androids loose on civilians? Someone or something has to be vanquished by heroics.

William Hertling's Thoughtstream: The Singularity is Still Closer than it Appears

William Hertling's Thoughtstream: The Singularity is Still Closer than it Appears | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

Ramez Naam, author of Nexus and Crux (two books I enjoyed and recommend), has recently put together a few guest posts for Charlie Stross (another author I love). The posts are The Singularity Is Further Than It Appears and Why AIs Won't Ascend in the Blink of an Eye.

They're both excellent posts, and I'd recommend reading them in full before continuing here.

I'd like to offer a slight rebuttal and explain why I think the singularity is still closer than it appears.

Brain's 'sweet spot' for love found in neurological patient

Brain's 'sweet spot' for love found in neurological patient | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
A region deep inside the brain controls how quickly people make decisions about love, according to new research. The finding, made in an examination of a 48-year-old man who suffered a stroke, provides the first causal clinical evidence that an area of the brain called the anterior insula "plays an instrumental role in love," said neuroscientist Stephanie Cacioppo, lead author of the study.

Best-Selling Author on Near-Death Experiences Convicted of Waterboarding Stepdaughter - disinformation

Best-Selling Author on Near-Death Experiences Convicted of Waterboarding Stepdaughter - disinformation | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
Pic: Hell’s waiting room.
And the motherfucker was a pediatrician, too.  The AP, via the NY Daily News:
A Delaware jury convicted a pediatrician Thursday of waterboarding his companion’s daughter by holding the child’s head under a faucet.
The jury deliberated for about six hours before returning its verdict against Melvin Morse, 60.
Morse was charged with three felonies — two for alleged waterboarding and one for alleged suffocation by hand. He was convicted of one felony — waterboarding in the bathtub — and five misdemeanors. Jurors reduced the second waterboarding charge to a misdemeanor and acquitted Morse of the suffocation charge.
Morse did not show any immediate reaction after the verdict. He was ordered to surrender his passport, but will remain out on bail until his sentencing hearing, set for April 11.
Morse faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, but a lesser sentence is likely. Under state sentencing guidelines, each misdemeanor carries a maximum of one year in prison, and often probation, while a felony charge typically carries 15 months.… Read the rest
