Mergeable nervous systems for robots

Mergeable nervous systems for robots | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

nukem777's insight:

Oh, what could possibly go wrong here???
"MNS robots thus constitute a new class of robots with capabilities beyond those of any existing machine or biological organism: an MNS robot can split into separate autonomous robots each with an independent brain unit, absorb robotic units with different capabilities into its body, and self-heal by removing or replacing malfunctioning body parts—including a malfunctioning brain unit."

Dimon calls bitcoin ‘a fraud’ and may have delivered the biggest blow to the digital currency

Dimon calls bitcoin ‘a fraud’ and may have delivered the biggest blow to the digital currency | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. boss Jamie Dimon just leveled one of the harshest criticisms about bitcoin and the broader digital-currency sector to date.

Via THE OFFICIAL ANDREASCY
nukem777's insight:

"

Speaking at a banking industry conference organized by Barclays BCS, +3.16%Dimon compared the rapid ascent of bitcoin with the 17th century mania over tulip bulbs—viewed as a classic, textbook bubble—and predicted that things may end just as badly for investors in the decentralized currency, which has been surging over the past year.

“Bitcoin will eventually blow up. It’s a fraud. It’s worse than tulip bulbs and won’t end well,” Dimon said.

Dimon also said he would fire any trader trading bitcoin for being “stupid.”

Speaking at CNBC’s Delivering Alpha conference late Tuesday afternoon, Dimon reiterated that “bitcoin is not a real thing and it’s solely speculative and that there’s no need for it in the US.”"

When presenting to teachers I often use thee phrase "Technology will not replace teachers but teachers who use technology will.' Maybe I need to re-frame that if this article is close to money. Be interested in what people think.

nukem777's insight:

Privacy won’t survive the present trajectory of technology — and with the sense of being perpetually watched, humans will behave more cautiously, less subversively...

 

Over time, the long merger of man and machine has worked out pretty well for man. But we’re drifting into a new era, when that merger threatens the individual. We’re drifting toward monopoly, conformism, their machines. Perhaps it’s time we steer our course.

Your Brain is Your Phone – How We Get To Next | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
When people worry about smartphones, they often talk of separating the user from the device for the sake of their mental health. But for many younger people, they might view that device as a part of themselves. A young person’s entire sense of connection and friendship may well be mediated by screens, with both analog and digital friendships.
