LIVING ROBOT with ‘HUMAN BRAIN’ close to creation as super AI computer around the corner

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, singularity

Fast tracking to singularity. We will see an acceleration of Synbio technology in this space and once QC is more and more available in our infrastructure we will see more and more adoption due to performance and reduce risks.

COMPUTER scientists attempting to electronically replicate the human brain are close to creating a ‘living PC’.

SingularityU: Artificial intelligence to transform every aspect of life

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, singularity

Controlling artificial intelligence devices by voice will come soon said AI expert Neil Jacobstein.

Artificial intelligence is set to transform the world, the audience at a Christchurch conference on the future was told.

Artificial intelligence (AI) “allows us to expand the range of the possible, to do things we never thought we could do before,” said Neil Jacobstein who chairs the artificial intelligence and robotics track at Singularity University, a think tank based in California.

SoftBank Is Investing in a Microchip to Make the Singularity a Reality

Posted by in categories: existential risks, robotics/AI, singularity

In Brief:

  • As part of a strategy to prepare for the Singularity, Japanese telecom multinational SoftBank spent $31 billion to acquire microprocessing company ARM.
  • This hypothetical day in the future when machine intelligence surpasses that of humanity may not be the doomsday it is portrayed as in much of pop culture.

Michael Fossel on Aging and the Telomerase Revolution

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, singularity

Dr. Michael Fossel is one of those few theoreticians who can see much of the big picture of aging. While some use mostly guesswork, and others hope to improve on that with logic, Fossel never shies away from the clear verdict that only data can give. Add his overwhelming compassion as a human being and you will understand why he is a clinician who really cares. You will also get a pretty good idea of what kind of a person Michael is – both personally and professionally. And those are just some of the reasons why enjoy having him back on my Singularity 1on1 podcast for an in-depth discussion of his latest book on the topic titled the Telomerase Revolution.

Physicist says our Universe could have spawned from a black hole

Posted by in categories: cosmology, mathematics, physics, singularity

According to our best understanding of the Universe, if you travel back in time as far as you can, around 13.8 billion years or so, you’ll eventually reach a singularity — a super-dense, hot, and energetic point, where the laws that govern space-time breakdown.

Despite our best attempts, we can’t peer past that singularity to see what triggered the birth of our Universe — but we do know of only one other instance in the history of our Universe where a singularity exists, and that’s inside a black hole. And the two events might have more in common than you’ve ever considered, as physicist Ethan Siegel explains over at Forbes.

The Astonishing Healthcare Tech of the Future Is Arriving

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, singularity

This week in San Diego, Singularity University hosted its annual Exponential Medicine conference. The conference aims to connect the dots between healthcare disciplines and cutting-edge tech by convening medical practitioners, technologists, entrepreneurs, and over 80 expert speakers from the field.

It’s easy to say “healthcare is broken” and call it a day, but a quote from brilliant thinker Maria Popova reminds us of the power of optimism to create change:

Enhancing Humanity — What’s The Next Phase Of Human Evolution?

Posted by in categories: evolution, singularity, space

I really love this topic – questioning what’s out there for humanity besides a singularity that may or may not happen or a discovery of the source powering an uber sophisticated kind of video game a.k.a. the *simulated* and likely *holographic universe*… Yes, evolution gets me all excited.

What follows now are possible futures for all of us, based on circulating theories on (continuing) evolution.

These futures show either a grinding halt to evolution, a continuing mutation and selection here on earth, some new form of evolution driven by technology, and (in a way related to technology, as well) a differentiation introduced by mimicking and adapting to a life on speculative space colonies.
