The interspecies internet: Peter Gabriel and Vint Cerf at TED2013

The interspecies internet: Peter Gabriel and Vint Cerf at TED2013 | The Long Poiesis | Scoop.it
In a bold talk at TED2013, Diana Reiss, Peter Gabriel, Neil Gershenfeld and Vint Cerf come together to launch the interspecies internet.

-

The internet connects people all over the world. But could the internet also connect us with dolphins, apes, elephants and other highly intelligent species?

 

In a bold talk in Session 10 of TED2013, four incredible thinkers come together to launch the idea of the interspecies internet. Each takes four minutes to talk, then passes the metaphorical baton, building the narrative in parts.

 

The talk begins with Diana Reiss, a cognitive psychologist who studies intelligence in animals. She shows us a video of an adorable dolphin twirling in the water. But the dolphin isn’t spinning playfully for the camera — the dolphin is watching itself in a two-way mirror.

 

“A dolphin has self-awareness,” says Reiss. “We used to think this was a uniquely human quality, but dolphins aren’t the only non-human animals to show self-recognition in a mirror. Great apes, our closest relatives, also show this ability.” Ditto for elephants and even magpies.

Get ready for hybrid thinking

Get ready for hybrid thinking | The Long Poiesis | Scoop.it
Two hundred million years ago, our mammal ancestors developed a new brain feature: the neocortex. This stamp-sized piece of tissue (wrapped around a brain the size of a walnut) is the key to what humanity has become. Now, futurist Ray Kurzweil suggests, we should get ready for the next big leap in brain power, as we tap into the computing power in the cloud.

Karlos Svoboda's curator insight, October 28, 4:09 PM

‘You’re going to have lots of different hybrid interactions between biological and technological beings. That will constitute the [new] life world, and we’re going to have to imagine a space where all those different life forms will have to live harmoniously together.’ It must be joke say live harmoniously together.

This video clearly explains how robots have already taken over our world

If you think it's just a joke that robots are going to replace humans, it's not. It's going to happen. In fact, CGP Grey explains in 'Humans Need Not Apply' how it's already happening around us right now. You might not notice it but you will after you watch how we're following historical patterns towards obscurity.

Can the Nervous System Be Hacked?

Can the Nervous System Be Hacked? | The Long Poiesis | Scoop.it
Welcome to the brave new world of bioelectronics: implants that can communicate directly with the nervous system in order to try to fight everything from cancer to the common cold.

..

Conceptually, bioelectronics is straightforward: Get the nervous system to tell the body to heal itself. But of course it’s not that simple. “What we’re trying to do here is completely novel,” says Pedro Irazoqui, a professor of biomedical engineering at Purdue University, where he’s investigating bioelectronic therapies for epilepsy. Jay Pasricha, a professor of medicine and neurosciences at Johns Hopkins University who studies how nerve signals affect obesity, diabetes and gastrointestinal-motility disorders, among other digestive diseases, says, “What we’re doing today is like the precursor to the Model T.”
