Exposition Nuage de points du 14 au 19 avril | Shadok // #mediaart | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it

L’exposition « nuages de points » rassemble des œuvres réalisées par des étudiants de l’option Art de la HEAR inscrits à la Fabrique et dans certains ateliers du groupe Objet (Bois, Métal).


Les réalisations, adossées à des pratiques très ouvertes de la sculpture, se nourrissent de manière joueuse et critique au contact de la chaîne de production numérique. Chaque auteur élabore des allers-retours surprenants entre des processus informatiques et son univers personnel.


Cette exposition accompagne un programme de recherche de l’option Art de la HEAR sur l’hybridation technique qui traverse la sculpture et la notion d’objet. Il s’agit de mettre « en frottement » critique et dynamique différentes catégories de savoir-faire, offerts à la création en volume. Ces croisements permettent de penser la plasticité des formes en s’appuyant tantôt sur des inflexions que permet la main, tantôt sur une genèse numérique.

Can we teach robots ethics?

Can we teach robots ethics? | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
We are not used to the idea of machines making ethical decisions, but the day when they will routinely do this - by themselves - is fast approaching. So how, asks the BBC's David Edmonds, will we teach them to do the right thing?

The car arrives at your home bang on schedule at 8am to take you to work. You climb into the back seat and remove your electronic reading device from your briefcase to scan the news. There has never been trouble on the journey before: there's usually little congestion. But today something unusual and terrible occurs: two children, wrestling playfully on a grassy bank, roll on to the road in front of you. There's no time to brake. But if the car skidded to the left it would hit an oncoming motorbike.

Neither outcome is good, but which is least bad?

The year is 2027, and there's something else you should know. The car has no driver.

A civil servant missing most of his brain challenges our most basic theories of consciousness

A civil servant missing most of his brain challenges our most basic theories of consciousness | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
Not much is definitively proven about consciousness, the awareness of one’s existence and surroundings, other than that its somehow linked to the brain. But theories as to how, exactly, grey matter generates consciousness are challenged when a fully-conscious man is found to be missing most of his brain.

Several years ago, a 44-year-old Frenchman went to the hospital complaining of mild weakness in his left leg. It was discovered then that his skull was filled largely by fluid, leaving just a thin parameter of actual brain tissue.

And yet the man was a married father of two and a civil servant with an IQ of 75, below-average in his intelligence but not mentally disabled.

Doctors believe the man’s brain slowly eroded over 30 years due to a build up of fluid in the brain’s ventricles, a condition known as “hydrocephalus.” His hydrocephalus was treated with a shunt, which drains the fluid into the bloodstream, when he was an infant. But it was removed when he was 14 years old. Over the following decades, the fluid accumulated, leaving less and less space for his brain.

While this may seem medically miraculous, it also poses a major challenge for cognitive psychologists, says Axel Cleeremans of the Université Libre de Bruxelles.

“Any theory of consciousness has to be able to explain why a person like that, who’s missing 90% of his neurons, still exhibits normal behavior,” says Cleeremans. A theory of consciousness that depends on “specific neuroanatomical features” (the physical make-up of the brain) would have trouble explaining such cases.

In theory, the frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital lobes in the brain control motion, sensibility, language, vision, audition, and emotional and cognitive functions. But those these regions were all reduced in the Frenchman. He did not, however, suffer significant mental effects suggesting that, if an injury occurs slowly over time, the brain can adapt to survive despite major damage in these regions.

Cleermeans, who gave a lecture on the subject at this year’s Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness conference in Buenos Aires, believes that the seeming plasticity of the brain is key to understanding how consciousness operates.

He believes that the brain learns to be conscious. As such, few specific neural features are necessary for consciousness, since areas of the brain are able to adapt and develop consciousness.

“Consciousness is the brain’s non-conceptual theory about itself, gained through experience—that is learning, interacting with itself, the world, and with other people,” he says.

De l’intelligence… des plantes. Entretien avec Marc-Williams Debono | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
- Si vous deviez « pitcher » la communication que vous vous apprêtez à faire incessamment sous peu… J’aborderai le sujet de la plasticité sous un angle un peu particulier : celui des flux d’information sensoriels qui traversent en permanence les organismes vivants, notamment les plantes, et ce, à la lumière des découvertes qui ont été réalisées au cours de ces trente dernières années sur les stratégies de communication végétales. Force est de constater que nous avions jusqu’alors sous-estimé les capacités des plantes à communiquer entre elles et avec leur environnement. Ces capacités sont telles qu’il n’est pas excessif de parler d’intelligence distribuée, sinon de « systèmes cognitifs incarnés » au sens du neurobiologiste et philosophe Francisco Varela. … Continuer la lecture →

Scientists Just Found a Vital Missing Link in The Origins of Life on Earth

Scientists Just Found a Vital Missing Link in The Origins of Life on Earth | PLASTICITIES  « Between matter and form, between experience and consciousness, the active plasticity of the world » | Scoop.it
Carbon might be the backbone of organic chemistry, but life on Earth wouldn't be what it is today if it weren't for another critical member of the periodic table – phosphorus.

Transforming run of the mill hydrocarbons into the kinds of molecules that include this important element is a giant evolutionary leap, chemically speaking. But now scientists think they know how such a vital step was accomplished.

Researchers from The Scripps Research Institute in California have identified a molecule capable of performing phosphorylation in water, making it a solid candidate for what has until now been a missing link in the chain from lifeless soup to evolving cells.

In the classic chicken and egg conundrum of biology's origins, debate continues to rage over which process kicked off others in order to get to life. Was RNA was followed by protein structures? Did metabolism spark the whole shebang? And what about the lipids?

No matter what school of abiogenesis you hail from, the production of these various classes of organic molecules requires a process called phosphorylation – getting a group of three oxygens and a phosphorus to attach to other molecules.

Nobody has provided strong evidence in support of any particular agent that might have been responsible for making this happen to prebiotic compounds. Until now.

"We suggest a phosphorylation chemistry that could have given rise, all in the same place, to oligonucleotides, oligopeptides, and the cell-like structures to enclose them," says researcher Ramanarayanan Krishnamurthy.
