Humanizing an inhuman future

Posted by in categories: energy, military, quantum physics, robotics/AI

Good report from Brookings Institute on the longer term IT Transformation. It highlights the need for countries and industry needs to be prepared for the magnitude of the transformation that is on the horizon. I support this perspective that there will indeed be a need for programs to be in place to retool,educate, and support workers that will be displaced. Also, there is a larger threat; and that is we must ensure that our critical infrastructure like Power Grids, banks, military, social prog, etc. are modernized into the changes that are coming from AI & Quantum.

Why evolution may be intelligent, based on deep learning

Posted by in categories: biological, computing, robotics/AI

Makes sense.

A computer scientist and biologist propose to unify the theory of evolution with learning theories to explain the “amazing, apparently intelligent designs that evolution produces.”

Where Will Advanced Brain Mapping Lead Us?

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, mapping, neuroscience, robotics/AI

In the early days of the space race of the 1960s, NASA used satellites to map the geography of the moon. A better understanding of its geology, however, came when men actually walked on the moon, culminating with Astronaut and Geologist Harrison Schmitt exploring the moon’s surface during the Apollo 17 mission in 1972.

In the modern era, Dr. Gregory Hickock is one neuroscientist who believes the field of neuroscience is pursuing comparable advances. While scientists have historically developed a geographic map of the brain’s functional systems, Hickock says computational neuroanatomy is digging deeper into the geology of the brain to help provide an understanding of how the different regions interact computationally to give rise to complex behaviors.

“Computational neuroanatomy is kind of working towards that level of description from the brain map perspective. The typical function maps you see in textbooks are cartoon-like. We’re trying to take those mountain areas and, instead of relating them to labels for functions like language, we’re trying to map them on — and relate them to — stuff that the computational neuroscientists are doing.”

Humans 2.0: How the robot revolution is going to change how we see, feel, and talk

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

Robots aren’t going to replace us, but by working hand in hand with us they will redefine what it means to be human.

Ford Starts Autonomous Vehicle Testing In The Snow

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

Anyone paying attention to all of the news about autonomous vehicles from Google and other companies may have noticed a common thread in the stories, photos and videos. The roads are always dry and the sun is shining. That’s because many of the sensors used to let a car manage its own trajectory don’t work well unless they can see the road and other surroundings clearly. Ford is now claiming to be the first automaker to test its prototype autonomous vehicles in winter weather conditions.

After becoming the first automaker to use the Mcity test facility in Ann Arbor, Mich. for autonomous vehicle tests last fall, the Dearborn automaker continued its development work into December when the snow started to fly.

Robots to replace personnel in the Russian army

Posted by in categories: military, robotics/AI

And, no one should say “Never” when it comes to people replaced by robots in the military.

Not good for the Russian military people.


Science fiction movies are quickly becoming a reality on the modern battlefield, as robots gradually supplant people in certain aspects of Russian military operations. The full automation of the armed forces using artificial intelligence is still a long way off, but some key functions once entrusted only to humans have already been passed on to machines.

Google Chairman Thinks AI Can Help Solve World’s ‘Hard Problems‘

Posted by in categories: internet, robotics/AI

Wow! Talk about your “hot” topic; this will definitely have everyone across tech and the web talking: https://lnkd.in/bavpnTf


(Bloomberg) — Googles chairman thinks artificial intelligence will let scientists solve some of the worlds “hard problems,” like population growth, climate change, human development, and education.

Rapid development in the field of AI means the technology can help scientists understand the links between cause and effect by sifting through vast quantities of information, said Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet Inc., the holding company that owns Google.

AI will play this role to navigate through this and help us.
