Rootstock Announces Release of Ginger Testnet

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, innovation

RSK Labs has announced the open source release of their Ginger test network for smart contracts. Presenting at digital currency conference Consensus 2017, RSK promised to add smart contract functionality to the main bitcoin blockchain along with greater scalability and additional revenue streams for miners.

Rootstock’s smart contract network will feature a two-way cryptographic peg to the main bitcoin blockchain, providing a platform that can scale up to 2.000 tx/second on chain and 20.000 tx/second off chain. The core innovation of the Rootstock technology will be smart contract functionality. RSK Labs is intending on introducing a Turing-complete scripting language which will allow decentralized applications to be programmed on the bitcoin network.

Radicals — Outsiders changing the world

Posted by in categories: geopolitics, life extension, transhumanism

Jamie Bartlett’s new book Radicals features #transhumanism in his opening chapter. He’s on a book tour and discusses his time on the Immortality Bus for about 10 minutes in this video below:


Society is badly served by the limited set of ideas which occupy our cultural mainstream. To cope with the increasing pace of change, we need big new ideas. Where might these ideas come from?

NASA seeks proposals for a Fab Lab in space to take humans beyond the moon

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, computing, space travel

Equipped with 3D printers, CNC machines, computers, digital tools and other equipment, a fabrication laboratory, otherwise known as a Fab Lab, is a facility set up to enable people to ‘make anything’. In a bid to provide these capabilities to missions for deep-space exploration, NASA are accepting FabLab proposals from corporate, institutional and charitable teams in the private-sector, due to be reviewed late 2017.

Pensions time-bomb for world’s biggest economies could explode to $400 trillion, says WEF

Posted by in categories: economics, life extension

Future generations are on course to become enveloped in the biggest pension crisis in history, according to the World Economic Forum (WEF), unless policymakers from the world’s leading economies take urgent action.

The Geneva-based organization predicted the challenges of an ageing population could result in the world’s largest economies being forced to tackle a pension time-bomb.

Analysis from WEF showed six countries with the biggest pensions, including the U.S., Canada, U.K., Netherlands, Japan and Australia, as well as the two most densely populated countries in the world – China and India – would face a retirement savings gap in excess of $400 trillion in 2050, up from around $70 trillion in 2015.

Apple Developing ‘Apple Neural Engine’ Chip to Power AI in iOS Devices

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, robotics/AI, transportation

Apple is developing a dedicated processor that will be used to handle AI-related tasks like facial and speech recognition in its products, reports Bloomberg. Citing a source with knowledge of Apple’s plans, the site says the chip is known internally as the “Apple Neural Engine.”

Apple plans to use the chip, which would work alongside the standard processor and the graphics chip, to add more advanced artificial intelligence capabilities into its devices and to offload demanding AI processing tasks that can impact battery life.

An AI-enabled processor would help Cupertino, California-based Apple integrate more advanced capabilities into devices, particularly cars that drive themselves and gadgets that run augmented reality, the technology that superimposes graphics and other information onto a person’s view of the world.

Russian group delivers the first unhackable quantum-safe blockchain

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, cybercrime/malcode, government, particle physics, quantum physics

Quantum computing and the blockchain both get plenty of attention in 2017, and now researchers in Russia have combined the two to create what they claim is an unhackable distributed-ledger platform.

The new technology, described as the “first quantum-safe blockchain,” promises to make it secure for organizations to transfer data without the fear of hacking from even the most powerful computers, in this case, the emerging field of quantum computing. Quantum computers make use of the quantum states of subatomic particles to store information, with the potential to do some calculations far faster than current computers. There’s some dispute whether we have actually reached that point yet, but companies such as Google Inc. are promising that true quantum computing is just around the corner.

“Quantum computers pose a major threat to data security today and could even be used to hack blockchains, destroying everything from cryptocurrencies like bitcoin to secure government communications,” a spokesperson for the Russian Quantum Center told SiliconANGLE. “Because quantum computers can test a large number of combinations at once, they will be able to destroy these digital signatures, leaving the blockchain vulnerable.”
