What Does it Mean to Live in An Interconnected Society?

Wow.  I really want to see this.  I was also happy to see/hear Howard Rheingold in this film preview.  I took a course from him last year.

Ken

 

Tiffany Shlain, founder of the Webby Awards, talks about today's interconnected society at The Economist's Ideas Economy: Information 2012 event in San Francisco. I wanted to bring this to your attention because what she is speaking about concerns all of us

 

What does it mean to live in a connected world? How is it changing us, our culture and the planet?

 

Her film "Connected" is a must see! It's thought provoking and captures the essence of the experience, the anxiety, overwhelm, mystery, commonality, rapture, looks at the potential and wonder of what innovation, knowledge, discovery lies ahead. 

 

Tiffany Shlain:

 

"Go as far as you can see and when you get there. you'll be able to see even farther"

 

Selected by Jan Gordon covering "Exploring Change and Ongoing Discussions"

Artificial Intelligence, Robots & humans: A Cyberpsychological perspective

Artificial Intelligence, Robots & humans: A Cyberpsychological perspective | The Futurecratic Scoop | Scoop.it

The constant advancements in computing power, machine learning algorithms and breakthroughs in relevant technologies is setting the interaction between humans and computers on a road where sometime in the near future advanced Artificial Intelligences (A.I.) will engage with people in many meaningful ways.

The possibility of a machine with consciousness raises many philosophical, psychological and sociological questions about the nature of consciousness itself and what it really means to be intelligent. The computational modelling of human cognitive abilities can play a significant role in the advancement of cognitive psychology, giving a better understanding of people’s own intelligence. Going from natural to Artificial Intelligence, there are many challenges and risks to be met, but also great opportunities.
