Call: Special issue of Ethics and Information Technology (ETIN) on the Internet of Things (IoT)

The vision of the Internet of Things portrays a world where physical objects are connected to the Internet, through technologies such as radio frequency identification (RFID), sensors and smartphones. Internet-enabled objects can share sensor data with web services and applications. As the physical and virtual worlds begin to interact with one another, boundaries between these worlds begin to erode. Our interaction with computers moves away from the desktop and into the environment, and becomes increasingly intertwined with our everyday lives. As this happens, we lose the ability to examine the artifacts we interact with as computing technology. They become invisible and infrastructural.

History is littered with dead gods. The Greek and Roman gods, and thousands of others have perished. Yet Allah, Yahweh, Krishna and a few more survive. But will belief in the gods endure? It will not. Our descendents will be too advanced to share such primitive beliefs.

Teleportation: Researchers Able to Relocate Objects Across Distances Via Destructive Scanning & 3D Printing | Web 3.0 | Scoop.it

Although 3D printing is only a blip on most intellectual property (IP) lawyers’ radars right now, I envision a time in the not too distant future where this all will change. It’s safe to guess that there are under one million 3D printers in homes and offices today. Considering the fact that we have a world population that’s north of 7 billion individuals, such a statistic barely moves the needle.

Transhumanism: The Anti-Human Agenda

Transhumanism: The Anti-Human Agenda | Web 3.0 | Scoop.it

At a TED-like techno-geek symposium in the 2014 film Transcendence, Artificial Intelligence guru Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is asked by an audience member, “So you want to create your own god?” And he answers, “Isn’t that what man has always done?”
This smarmy remark is indicative of the hubris and arrogance of scientism, the belief that science can solve all the problems on this planet, while scientists can have fun playing god at the same time. 

Pierre Tran's insight:

Pour certains, les transhumanistes se prennent pour des dieux.
