A computer that thinks like the universe - Joshua Rothman - In: The Boston Globe

A computer that thinks like the universe - Joshua Rothman - In: The Boston Globe | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

If an atomic-scale computer can be built, it won’t just create a faster machine: it will help us think like the universe. What is a computer? Steve Jobs famously described the computer as “a bicycle for the mind” — a tool to help us remember, think, discover, and create. There’s another way, though, to think about what a computer is: not as a high-tech tool, but as a profound intellectual achievement. In a deep sense, the power of the computer is as much about ideas as it is about circuits.

Forecasts for the Next 25 Years - Timothy Mack

Forecasts for the Next 25 Years - Timothy Mack | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   The value of a forecast is not just in whether it comes true or not. Some of the best forecasts don’t come true because people took action to avoid a crisis.

   In this era of accelerating change, knowledge alone is no longer the key to a prosperous life. The critical skill is foresight. Knowledge quickly goes out of date, but foresight enables you to navigate change, and take action now to create a better future.

The Next 50 Years: Why I'm Optimistic Because Everything Will Be Terrible

The Next 50 Years: Why I'm Optimistic Because Everything Will Be Terrible | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

With everything rolling towards the abyss, our only hope for a bright future seems to be the Singularity, a technological transformation of what it means to be human.

But in a talk for TEDx Brussels, science fiction and horror writer John Shirley argues that there are really two Singularities — and yes, everything will be terrible in the short term. So why is he optimistic about the future of the human race? Read on.
