Singularitarianism - Wikipedia

Singularitarianism - Wikipedia | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

Singularitarianism is a technocentric ideology and social movement defined by the belief that a technological singularity—the creation of a superintelligence—will likely happen in the medium future, and that deliberate action ought to be taken to ensure that the Singularity benefits humans.
Singularitarians are distinguished from other futurists who speculate on a technological singularity by their belief that the Singularity is not only possible, but desirable if guided prudently. Accordingly, they might sometimes dedicate their lives to acting in ways they believe will contribute to its rapid yet safe realization.[1]
Some critics argue that Singularitarianism is a new religious movement promising salvation in a technological utopia.[2] Others, however, are concerned that the interest in the Singularity by corporate and military interests provides a clue as to the real direction and social implication of emerging technologies celebrated by Singularitarians.

Effective Ebola Response: A Multiscale Approach | NECSI

Effective Ebola Response: A Multiscale Approach | NECSI | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
The Ebola outbreak in western Africa continues to spread uncontrolled, affecting thus far five countries. On September 16th, President Obama spoke at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention headquarters in Atlanta and pledged a dramatically higher involvement: funding, providing supplies and beds and a military command center in Liberia. 3000 military personnel will be on the ground to help train and coordinate thousands of healthcare workers. However, treating patients is not enough. The success of this, or any, intervention depends on stopping the spread of the disease.

The key to stopping the disease is dramatically reducing the likelihood that one case leads to others. The standard approach is to find and isolate infected individuals, check on those they have been in contact with and monitor them to see if they contracted the disease. Finding all those who are infected in impoverished urban populations, and tracing all of the people they have been in contact with is difficult or impossible. Missing even one can have devastating consequences as the disease spreads and then spreads again.

Who Hired This Idiot?

Who Hired This Idiot?

A young executive was leaving the office at 6pm when he found the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in hand.

"Listen," said the CEO, "this is important, and my secretary has left. Can you make this thing work?"

"Certainly," said the young executive. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.

"Excellent, excellent!" said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the machine. "I just need one copy."

Canadian Cannabis

Canadian Cannabis | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Vice's episodic documentary Canadian Cannabis examines the impact of a recently updated medical marijuana law on Canadians suffering from a variety of ailments. Reporter Damian Abraham, himself a user of medicinal marijuana, explores the topic by visiting grow operations and dispensaries. In addition to touring these facilities he enjoys casual but enlightening chats with professional cultivators, legal experts, and patients.
The Canadian medical marijuana legislation, first enacted about fifteen years ago, allowed users to either grow their own weed, purchase it from an independent licensed provider (LP), or purchase it through an LP contracted by Health Canada. Changes introduced in April, 2014 hindered sales through independent LPs, in turn enabling the increasing corporatization of Canada's medical marijuana industry.
In the first installment Abraham delights in touring two Ontario-based production facilities, where luscious green plants populate pristine and spacious grow rooms. While both the quality and quantities of the crops being produced are jaw-droppingly impressive, the devastation to many patients as a result of the new law becomes evident throughout the series. Through conversations with lawyer John Conroy and activist Jodie Emery it is convincingly argued that the industrialization of medicinal marijuana creates undue difficulties for patients who were once safely medicating under the previous legislation.
In Episode 2 Abraham checks out Jim's Weeds, a dispensary in Vancouver, where he enjoys the spoils of a legal weed lounge while learning more about the use of medicinal marijuana by senior citizens and children. Specializing in edible and smoke-free forms of consumption such as drinks and baked goods, Jim's aims to provide products that are safe for patients at all stages of life.
The final episode most directly illustrates the ways in which patients have suffered as a result of the new medical marijuana program. Abraham speaks to a man living with multiple sclerosis, another with HIV, and a couple whose young baby relies on cannabinoid extract to manage a seizure disorder. Together their stories present a compelling case for the benefits of medical marijuana and the importance of safe, legal access to it. A captivating, humorous, and informative series, Canadian Cannabis successfully humanizes the issue of medical marijuana.

3ders.org - ‘3D Bioprinting Solutions’ to reveal first Russian 3D bioprinter in late October | 3D Printer News & 3D Printing News | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
While there are a number of areas in the field of 3D printing technology that haven't yet been mastered, one the biggest challenges currently around must be bioprinting. To be sure, there are a number of 3D bioprinters out there already – only this week we reported 3Dynamic Systems and their two bioprinters – but there is still a long way to go before this technology becomes affordable, available and commercially interesting.

But no one is doubting its potential. Not only could it become a very interesting feature for the food industry – when printing meat to replace industrial farming and all its consequences – but there are also a wide range of medical applications. Tests have shown bioprinting to be able to produce blood vessels, vascular networks, while we recently learned that the US army is looking into its possibilities for cell regeneration and organ transplants. All this makes it a very interesting subcategory in the field of 3D printing, and one we will doubtlessly hear more about in the coming years.

The Secret Goldman Sachs Tapes

The Secret Goldman Sachs Tapes | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Probably most people would agree that the people paid by the U.S. government to regulate Wall Street have had their difficulties. Most people would probably also agree on two reasons those difficulties seem only to be growing: an ever-more complex financial system that regulators must have explained to them by the financiers who create it, and the ever-more common practice among regulators of leaving their government jobs for much higher paying jobs at the very banks they were once meant to regulate. Wall Street's regulators are people who are paid by Wall Street to accept Wall Street's explanations of itself, and who have little ability to defend themselves from those explanations.

Our financial regulatory system is obviously dysfunctional. But because the subject is so tedious, and the details so complicated, the public doesn't pay it much attention.

That may very well change today, for today -- Friday, Sept. 26 --- the radio program "This American Life" will air a jaw-dropping story about Wall Street regulation, and the public will have no trouble at all understanding it.

Vår resa började för mer än 100 år sedan. Närmare bestämt år 1899 då bönderna i Halmstad slog sig ihop och skapade den första slakteriföreningen. Tillsammans med sydöstra andelsslakterier med bas i Tomelilla i Skåne blev de båda föreningarna drivande i utvecklingen av det som idag är Scan.

1970 samlade vi alla våra föreningars produkter under grunden till vår välkända röd/vita logotyp. Under 70-talet utvecklades även många av våra klassiska favoriter som Bredbar Leverpastej, Hot Dogs och Falukorvsringen.

Why Bitcoin Value vs. The Dollar Doesn't Matter

Why Bitcoin Value vs. The Dollar Doesn't Matter | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
One reason can be from distilled from lessons learned in our history of decentralized networks versus other centralized networks. One can be realized through the present day landscape, and one looks into the future of money as we know it. So let’s begin with our ability to learn from history.

Twenty years ago, when the Internet was just starting to gain momentum, it was in a similar state of development as Bitcoin is in today. “The Web” was replacing ancient communication methods like typewriters and snail mail at a slow, but steadily increasing rate. These  wouldn’t be instantly replaced, but would be one day irrelevant. As we moved along a few more years, and the 21st century dawned upon us, mainstream news magnets like CNN and the Washington Post joined “The Online Revolution.” This caused newspapers to shrink in size, number and demand. As The Internet grew in scope, was it ever compared directly, on a daily basis, to the New York Times or Time Magazine in its relevance?

Just as people today are asking “What is Bitcoin?,” people in 1994 were asking “What is e-Mail?,” and “What is The Internet?” Bitcoin is following the Internet’s lead, in essence, building its own blockchain technology on top of the Internet’s existing virtual blockchain, if you will. Bitcoin’s growing influence on monetary systems and global commerce are set to be similar in depth to the Internet’s inherent ability to change the way we all communicate worldwide. Bitcoin is not so much reinventing the wheel, although it may in the currency markets as it is setting the established wheel of the Internet in an exciting new direction. This potential will take another few years to realize fully how far Bitcoin value can go, but it is moving upward and onward, and the world is starting to take notice.

Our Generation

Our Generation | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Our Generation is feature-length documentary that explores the complicated relationship between the world's oldest living culture, the Australian Indigenous (Aboriginal) people, and the world's newest, the colonization of Western peoples in the same country. For over 60,000 years, more than 400 aboriginal communities have thrived on the continent. In the late 18th century, Western civilization began colonizing their land and various forms of oppression directed towards the indigenous people have been steadfast in their growth ever since.
Much the same way the United States has tried to push the Native Americans into lands (i.e. "reservations") the government sees fit, Australian officials that reflect little to no elected representation of the indigenous people themselves have in essence herded Aboriginals into small sectors of the continent that are of course disadvantageous places to live for a range of reasons. In recent years, efforts to take even those lands for the purposes of excavating minerals and other resources have been put into motion under the guise that the Aboriginal people will be better served to be restricted to even smaller plots of land that are more urbanized - a way of life that is entirely contradictory to the nomadic one they have lived for tens of thousands of years.
The forms of basic human rights Aboriginals are denied are many, but one of the most glaring facts touched on in the film is the lack of a formal agreement of any kind between the indigenous people and the Western government that has systematically seized their land for centuries now. It is the only such large-scale case in the world today.
The story is told through interviews with a number of local people in the community of Yolngu in Northeast Arnhem Land, which is one of the few remaining lands where traditional Aboriginal culture can be found in Australia, many prominent indigenous leaders throughout the country, as well as accomplished historians and human rights activists that deal in the issue. First-time filmmakers Sinem Saban and Damien Curtis paint a concise picture of the deprivation of rights the Aboriginal people are being subject to in the film, as evidenced by its selection as Best Campaign Film at the London International Documentary Festival in 2011.
