Sweet delights are on every corner in Lisbon - my "hood" Campo de Ourique pasty shop Aloma is the twice winner of the best custard tart of the year. Just as well there are lots of hills in the city to walk off all these sweet treats.

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra | smart cities | Scoop.it

In this talk, Sugata Mitra will take us through the origins of schooling as we know it, to the dematerialisation of institutions as we know them. Thirteen years of experiments in children's education takes us through a series of startling results – children can self-organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, they can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: groups of children with access to the internet can learn anything by themselves. From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata's experimental results show a strange new future for learning.

How 3D Printing Is Going To Change The World

How 3D Printing Is Going To Change The World | smart cities | Scoop.it

Printable limbs and organs, printable guns, printable pizza?! This technology will change our lives.

 

A 3D printer is similar to a normal printer, however a normal printer produces ink on paper. 3D printers, on the other hand, layer atoms on top of each other to create, or print, actual 3D objects.

It sounds fascinating, right? But 3D printing is certainly an invention that did not occur overnight. What is known as 3D printing now was once known as rapid prototyping. Rapid prototyping has been in use for many years now, and it involves an engineer designing an object as a computerized aided design file, or CAD. This file would then be sent to machines, which would produce the 3D object.

The only problem with this early type of 3D printing is that the plastics and the metals that were used were just not of a high-enough quality to be used as anything other than a prototype. Although the machine could produce the parts designed, the end product didn't have structural integrity and was only used to design things that engineers wanted to see a life-size model of.

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist

162 Future Jobs: Preparing for Jobs that Don’t Yet Exist | smart cities | Scoop.it

A recent article in The Economist quotes Bill Gates as saying at least a dozen job types will be taken over by robots and automation in the next two decades, and these jobs cover both high-paying and low-skilled workers. Some of the positions he mentioned were commercial pilots, legal work, technical writing, telemarketers, accountants, retail workers, and real estate sales agents.

 

Indeed, as I’ve predicted before, by 2030 over 2 billion jobs will disappear. Again, this is not a doom and gloom prediction, rather a wakeup call for the world.

Ben Hendry's curator insight, March 15, 2014 8:23 AM

Stuart Armstrong of the Future of Humanity Institute - a philosophical faculty of Oxford University - questions human understanding of Artificial Intelligence.

 

Armstrong gives the example of an Antivirus program that's dedicated to filtering the viruses out of emails. He asks what's going to stop an intelligent machine from making an inference that the best way to stop the viruses is to simply stop the emails arriving in the first place. 

 

Armstrong admits that although Artificial intelligence is still in its infancy; it's important to raise these ethical questions and issues early. As it may take "- just one developer [to come] up with a "neat algorithm" that no one else had thought to construct" for us to achieve true computer intelligence.


He finishes by saying that it's important "- [we] try to adjust society ourselves before the AI adjusts it for us."
