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.

Something often overlooked when we talk about all the shiny new connected gadgets emerging out of the ‘Internet of Things’ is what happens to all the old things. I’m fascinated by the power of adding multiple sensors to old things and then connecting them to the internet.

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.

Saving information on a computer boosts human memory resources for new information | Web 3.0 | Scoop.it

The simple act of saving something, such as a file on a computer, may improve our memory for the information we encounter next, according to new research published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science. The research suggests that the act of saving helps to free up cognitive resources that can be used to remember new information.

AI is different because it lets machines weld the emotional with the physical | Web 3.0 | Scoop.it

The human race has long designed and used tools to help us solve problems, from flint axes to space shuttles. They affect our lives and shape society in expected and sometimes unexpected ways. We may understand how these tools work – after all, we built them – but sometimes it’s the use they’re put to that surprises.

If you’ve been out of school for a long time you may only remember the good parts — growing up with your friends, school events, and those few inspirational teachers who pushed you to excel. The bad parts of school are just as memorable; fights, changing relationships, and failures. But the day-to-day lecture, note-taking and test-taking is still commonplace in many classrooms and easily forgotten since it doesn’t engage the learning imagination.

One expert predicts—or should we say, warns—that artificial intelligence will be fully operational in just 30 years.For years, the development of full artificial intelligence has been the brass ring of computer science. So many of our machines already “think” for themselves in terms of repetitive duties based on human programming, of course. But when the day comes when computers can actually interpret our emotions, or get the punch line about the chicken and the road without our help, we’ll know the future has truly arrived.
