Morgan Freeman: 'We May Already Be In The Midst Of A Growing Zombie Apocalypse'

Morgan Freeman: 'We May Already Be In The Midst Of A Growing Zombie Apocalypse' | This is our Future | Scoop.it
Zombies are the stuff of nightmares, books, movies and television shows. Try as we may, it's almost impossible to kill them -- the zombies, that is.

The idea that humans can be transformed into mindless, cannibalistic monsters isn't so far-fetched...
ApocalypticThoughts's insight:

Interesting take on this topic!

Brazil to Clone Endangered Animals, Release Into Wild

Brazil to Clone Endangered Animals, Release Into Wild | This is our Future | Scoop.it

Brazil has announced that scientists within the nation will soon start cloning endangered animals, ultimately seeking to release them back into the wild to increase population.

I’ve covered a great deal of stories surrounding the act of cloning, biotechnology, and a multitude of topics in between. What is truly amazing to see is just how fast many scientists are able to bypass the entire ethics debate regarding cloning and push it through by propping up a universally accepted issue. In this case, the issue regarding the rapidly declining number of endangered animals in Brazil.

The only animal in world that can live forever

The only animal in world that can live forever | This is our Future | Scoop.it
Did you know that Turritopsis Nutricula is the only animal/creature in the world that lives forever defying aging?

Its a jellyfish that was discovered in 2010 where it replaces its old life cells with younger ones!

Though it’s been trumpeted elsewhere on the web as the immortal jellyfish, Turritopsis nutricula is in fact age-defying rather than immortal. If it is eaten or starves it will still die. But defying age is still quite the accomplishment.

Turritopsis nutricula accomplishes this trick by a process called transdifferentiation. This is just a process where one type of cells turn into a different type of cells. Usually this process only happens during organ regeneration.

The Week's Best Robot Videos: A Shifty Bot You Can't Trust

The Week's Best Robot Videos: A Shifty Bot You Can't Trust | This is our Future | Scoop.it
he (Un)Trustworthy Bot
Usually when we talk about whether a technology is trustworthy, we’re talking about how reliable or secure it is. But Nexi, the robot in this video, can exhibit body language that is intended to make people suspicious. Developed by MIT’s Cynthia Breazeal, Nexi builds on prior research about body language and trustworthiness. Studies from MIT, Northeastern University, and Cornell University identified four actions that commonly make people suspicious of others: leaning away, crossing one’s arms, clasping one’s hands together, and touching one’s face. The robot was designed to mimic these four actions, and researchers used it in one-on-one conversations with participants in the study. A human provided Nexi’s voice to keep the conversation natural, and another controlled the bot’s motions. The study reports that when people unknowingly witnessed certain nonverbal cues, they acted as though the robot couldn’t be trusted. Read more about the study at the New York Times, and then try not to play psychologist every time you see people touching their faces.
