The one crucial skill our education system is missing | #Empathy #EmotionalIntelligence 

The one crucial skill our education system is missing | #Empathy #EmotionalIntelligence  | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it

From Blade Runner to I, Robot, the big screens of Hollywood have predicted the rise of the machine. Automated intelligences will wait our tables and drive our cabs. They will serve us by performing menial tasks. But fact is now surpassing fiction. Automation has moved beyond the factory assembly line as computers are diagnosing illnesses, providing legal counsel, and make financial and political decisions. And if artificial intelligence really is faster, smarter and more reliable, what are we left with?

The answer is precisely that element which makes us less efficient and slower. Our humanity. But rather than being seen as a weakness, this is actually our strongest suit. It’s one we need to empower, because studies show that as the world becomes increasingly automated, computerised and digitalised, we are losing the very skills that define us as human. Just when we need them the most.

Our empathy is something that computers will always struggle to emulate. We need to celebrate what makes us different from even the smartest of the machines. While the future belongs to those who are able to navigate this increasingly digitalised world of ours, the choicest spoils will fall to those who can combine technological fluency with emotional intelligence.

Finally I can see this topic emerge in public discussion about education - something I've been privately preaching about. 

Felipe Rincon's curator insight, March 14, 2018 8:22 PM
It is very interesting the way in which this article emphasizes the importance of empathy and the other characteristics belonging to the human being in our society, also how that characteristics distance us from machines. I think that the implementation of methodologies that take into consideration this aspects in education in general will contribute to the comprehensive citizens education. The appropriate combination of technological fluency with emotional intelligence should be one of the goals in modern education

Computational modeling explains why blues and greens are brightest structural colors in nature

Computational modeling explains why blues and greens are brightest structural colors in nature | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it

Researchers from the University of Cambridge used a numerical experiment to determine the limits of matt structural color – a phenomenon which is responsible for some of the most intense colors in nature – and found that it extends only as far as blue and green in the visible spectrum. The results, published in PNAS, could be useful in the development of non-toxic paints or coatings with intense color that never fades.

 

Structural color, which is seen in some bird feathers, butterfly wings or insects, is not caused by pigments or dyes, but internal structure alone. The appearance of the color, whether matt or iridescent, will depending on how the structures are arranged at the nanoscale.

Artificial intelligence yields new antibiotic never seen before

Artificial intelligence yields new antibiotic never seen before | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
Using a new machine-learning algorithm, MIT researchers have identified a powerful antibiotic that can kill a wide range of species of pathogenic bacteria, including some that are resistant to all known antibiotics.

 

The computer model, which can screen more than a hundred million chemical compounds in a matter of days, is designed to pick out potential antibiotics that kill bacteria using different mechanisms than those of existing drugs. "We wanted to develop a platform that would allow us to harness the power of artificial intelligence to usher in a new age of antibiotic drug discovery," says James Collins, the Termeer Professor of Medical Engineering and Science in MIT's Institute for Medical Engineering and Science (IMES) and Department of Biological Engineering. "Our approach revealed this amazing molecule which is arguably one of the more powerful antibiotics that has been discovered."

Sensitive robots – New electronic skin can react to pain like human skin

Sensitive robots – New electronic skin can react to pain like human skin | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
Artificial skin reacts to pain just like real skin, opening the way to better prosthetics, smarter robotics and less invasive options for skin grafts.

 

Researchers have developed electronic artificial skin that reacts to pain just like real skin, opening the way to better prosthetics, smarter robotics and non-invasive alternatives to skin grafts. The prototype device developed by a team at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, can electronically replicate the way human skin senses pain. The device mimics the body's near-instant feedback response and can react to painful sensations with the same lighting speed that nerve signals travel to the brain.

Artificial skin reacts to pain just like real skin, opening the way to better prosthetics, smarter robotics, and less invasive options for skin grafts. Researchers have developed electronic artificial skin that reacts to pain just like real skin, opening the way to better prosthetics, smarter robotics, and non-invasive alternatives to skin grafts. The prototype device developed by a team at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, can electronically replicate the way human skin senses pain. The device mimics the body's near-instant feedback response and can react to painful sensations with the same lighting speed that nerve signals travel to the brain. The pain-sensing prototype was a significant advance towards next-generation biomedical technologies and intelligent robotics. "Skin is our body's largest sensory organ, with complex features designed to send rapid-fire warning signals when anything hurts," Bhaskaran said. "We're sensing things all the time through the skin but our pain response only kicks in at a certain point, like when we touch something too hot or too sharp. No electronic technologies have been able to realistically mimic that very human feeling of pain -- until now. Our artificial skin reacts instantly when pressure, heat, or cold reach a painful threshold. It's a critical step forward in the future development of the sophisticated feedback systems that we need to deliver truly smart prosthetics and intelligent robotics."

Elon Musk demonstrates Neuralink brain-chip implant on a Pig

Elon Musk demonstrates Neuralink brain-chip implant on a Pig | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it

Elon Musk demonstrated a working Neuralink brain-machine interface device implanted on a pig during a live broadcast.  He said the purpose of the presentation was to recruit employees that would like to help develop the system. – “We’re not trying to raise money or do anything else, but the main purpose is to convince great people to come work at Neuralink, and help us bring the product to fruition; make it affordable and reliable and such that anyone who wants one can have one,” he said. Neuralink aims to solve brain-related issues with the brain chip called ‘Link’. Musk said the device could help solve memory loss, strokes, addiction, depression, anxiety, even monitor a users’ health to warn if they are about to have a heart attack. The interface could also help return mobility to paralyzed individuals through artificial limbs. The user would be able to move prosthetics with their thoughts via the Link brain-machine interface.

Do deepfakes have the power to rewrite history?

Do deepfakes have the power to rewrite history? | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it
A new deepfake art installation reimagines the story of the moon landings, revealing threats to both democracy and history,

 

It has been 50 years since man set foot on the moon - a moment of triumph, technology and staggering engineering. But what if things hadn't gone to plan? At the time of the landing, then US president Richard Nixon had prepared a statement to read in case things went wrong, and astronauts Neil Armstrong or Buzz Aldrin were left stranded on the lunar surface.

 

Decades later, a new art installation has used the latest deepfake technology to reimagine the story of the moon landing.

The undelivered speech, written by presidential speechwriter William Safire, was stored in the National Archives and finally made public in 1999 during the 30th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing.

 

“In Event of Moon Disaster’’, which opened Friday at the International Documentary Festival (IDFA) in Amsterdam, was produced at the MIT Center for Advanced Virtuality and directed by Francesca Panetta, the centre’s creative director, and Halsey Burgund, an MIT research affiliate.

Microbial life on Venus? Phosphine gas in clouds of Venus detected | Design, Comm, Sci and Tech | Scoop.it

Measurements of trace gases in planetary atmospheres help us explore chemical conditions different to those on Earth. Our nearest neighbor planet, Venus, has clouds that are temperate but hyperacidic. Here we report the apparent presence of phosphine (PH3) gas in Venus’s atmosphere, where any phosphorus should be in oxidized forms. Single-line millimeter-waveband spectral detections (quality up to ~15σ) from the JCMT and ALMA telescopes have no other plausible identification.
