Study: Smartphone usage becoming obsessive, can cause anxiety - FierceWireless:Europe

People have become so dependent on their smartphones that they become anxious when they haven't received any calls, messages or updates for a while, according to the latest research into the topic. According to a report in The Daily Telegraph, people become so obsessive about checking their email accounts and social networking sites that they actually become more stressed as a result, researchers said.

Rise of the cyborgs

Rise of the cyborgs | Self Memory Nostalgia | Scoop.it

Of all the powers that we have imagined for the cyborg, which do we most covet? Their ability to see and sense detail in the environment? The ability manipulate things with the dexterity and power of a machine? Or perhaps it would be to command vast amounts of information which can be processed at tremendous speed?
If you chose none of those, you chose as any cyborg likely would have. The cyborg’s greatest power, that from which it derives the most satisfaction (to use that term loosely), must be the ability to see itself.

Pondering Our Cyborg Future in a Documentary About the Singularity

Xaos's curator insight, January 12, 2013 2:56 AM

the complex, abstract concept of the singularity, which predicts a moment when technology will give rise to intelligence beyond the scope of human imagination. It sounds like sci-fi but, Wolens and others argue, there's no denying the sweeping impact of technology on human existence and the implications are worth thinking about. In the trailer for the film, below, scientists, futurists, and other experts describe what the singularity might have in store. How will we get there? Advancements in neurotechnology and the rise of brain-machine interfaces might contribute, according to the short excerpt of the film, below. "In some ways we're doing that today," the futurist Ray Kurzweil says, holding up a mobile phone. "The fact that I can take this out of my pocket and access all of human knowledge is an extension of my brian, even if this isn't quite inside my brain yet." In an interview below, Wolens describes the long process of putting this documentary together and some of the challenges along the way.

Prescribing art for older people | Self Memory Nostalgia | Scoop.it
A programme developed with GP practices connects residents who may be frail or lonely through art workshops
Alistair Parker's insight:

A 2010 review by the Oxford Institute of Ageing of the Good Times programme said: "[The gallery] sees no reason why older people, even if they have never been involved in any art before, even if they have physical or mental disabilities, should not be able to tackle similar sorts of creative challenges as do other adult groups, with a few adjustments to make certain aspects easier. The participants were often surprised by the quality of their own work."

Alistair Parker's insight:

The MemoryLane mobile solution captures the life of persons with mild dementia.

The life is automatically recorded as images, audio and possibly video, and is organised along time, place, person and object dimensions. Each day is automatically divided into activities.

At the end of each day, the person with dementia and the carer (relative) reviews the activities of that day, and adds information about names of persons, places and objects etc. This caring activity also helps the person with dementia to build episodic memories of the day.

The person with dementia can navigate the past and future life using a mobile device, and can even ask for advice on what is the normal activity in that situation.
