Why augmented reality is triggering cultural conflict and religious controversy

Why augmented reality is triggering cultural conflict and religious controversy | sociology of the Web | Scoop.it
A Russian man was recently given a three-and-a-half year suspended sentence for inciting religious hatred. His crime? Playing the popular augmented reality (AR) game Pokémon Go on his smartphone in a church.

Sacred spaces and games have long had an uneasy relationship. In 2002, a setting resembling Amritsar’s Golden Temple appeared in the violent video game Hitman 2. Controversy ensued. But more than digitally recreating sacred places, we now have games that physically encroach on those spaces, incorporating them into location-based AR systems. Inside Gujarati temples where eggs are forbidden, were found some of Pokémon Go’s “virtual eggs”. Controversy ensued, again.

AR is a simple idea with endlessly complicated implications – look around using special glasses or a smartphone camera, add software with location awareness, and the software can overlay information on a scene or even make things appear to be located “in” physical space. AR turns physical sites into raw materials for the creation of new media, producing hybrids that are simultaneously everyday places and digital wonderlands.

Watch for the collision of Augmented Reality and games with protection of sacred places and historical monuments.  Games, such as Pokeman Go,  This issue has already arisen in Russia. Could your neighborhood be next?

Tensions Flare as Scientists Go Public With Plan to Build Synthetic Human DNA

Tensions Flare as Scientists Go Public With Plan to Build Synthetic Human DNA | sociology of the Web | Scoop.it
One of the greatest ethical debates in science - manipulating the fundamental building blocks of life - is set to heat up once more.

According to scientists behind an ambitious and controversial plan to write the human genome from the ground up, synthesising DNA and incorporating it into mammalian and even human cells could be as little as four to five years away.

Nearly 200 leading researchers in genetics and bioengineering are expected to attend a meeting in New York City next week, to discuss the next stages of what is now called the Genome Project-write (GP-write) plan: a US$100 million venture to research, engineer, and test living systems of model organisms, including the human genome.

Framed as a follow-up to the pioneering Human Genome Project (HGP) – which culminated in 2003 after 13 years of research that mapped the human genetic code – this project is billed as the logical next step, where scientists will learn how to cost-effectively synthesise plant, animal, and eventually human DNA.

"HGP allowed us to read the genome, but we still don't completely understand it," GP-write coordinator Nancy J. Kelley told Alex Ossola at CNBC.

While those involved are eager to portray the project as an open, international collaboration designed to further our understandings of genome science, GP-write provoked considerable controversy after its first large meet-up a year ago was conducted virtually in secret, with a select group of invite-only experts holding talks behind closed doors.

Fascinating and scary effort to manipulate the "fundamental building blocks of life."  There are many ethical, religious, social, and political issues that must be solved.  I'm reminded of Huxley's "Brave New World."

nukem777's insight:

"...the evidence so far suggests AIs most likely won’t be superhuman but will be many hundreds of extra-human new species of thinking, most different from humans, none that will be general purpose, and none that will be an instant god solving major problems in a flash. Instead there will be a galaxy of finite intelligences, working in unfamiliar dimensions, exceeding our thinking in many of them, working together with us in time to solve existing problems and create new problems."

The mind in the machine: Demis Hassabis on artificial intelligence

The mind in the machine: Demis Hassabis on artificial intelligence | sociology of the Web | Scoop.it
The scientific method might be the single most powerful idea humans have ever had, and progress since the Enlightenment has been simply astonishing. But we are now at a critical juncture where many of the systems we need to master are fiendishly complex, from climate change to macroeconomic issues to Alzheimer’s disease. Whether we can solve these challenges — and how fast we can get there — will affect the future wellbeing of billions of people and the environment we all live in.

The problem is that these challenges are so complex that even the world’s top scientists, clinicians and engineers can struggle to master all the intricacies necessary to make the breakthroughs required.

In all of content marketing analytics and reporting, the most critical function is the ability to translate data into actionable insights and to act on those insights to improve performance. Unfortunately, most marketers simply go through the motions with their reporting. They dump data on their clients, their superiors, or their teammates without any real insight into what is happening or what has happened with their hard-spent content marketing budget.

China’s One Belt One could be many trillions in investment in the 2020s | NextBigFuture.com | sociology of the Web | Scoop.it
China’s ambitious One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative is likely to have “modest” short-term impact on total investment and overall economic growth in the vast region, says Oxford Economics. Launched by President Xi Jinping in 2013, OBOR aims to create an infrastructure network by building roads, ports and railway tracks along ancient trading routes that will span 65 countries and connect some 60% of the global population. “While it’s hard to quantify the total number of projects and amount of financing, the China Development Bank alone has reserved US$890 billion (S$1.24 trillion) for over 900 projects, highlighting the magnitude of this undertaking,” says Oxford Economics’ He Tianjie and Louis Kuijs in a research briefing on April 27. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) estimates that OBOR would need an annual infrastructural investment of US$1.7 trillion until 2030. Excess capacity in China’s steel industry ranges from 250 to 450 million tonnes per year, while the economists estimate
