Read Orbital Space Settlement Radiation Shielding. The major result of this paper is that settlements in low (~500 km) Earth equatorial orbits may not require any radiation shielding at all based on a careful analysis of requirements and extensive simulation of radiation effects.
Longevity Cookbook Indiegogo Launch Party will be on May 14th in
San Francisco, California.
This event will involve more people in longevity research and help us to build a
strong and powerful community.
This event is working to develop both a practical guide to longevity and a story about the science underlying nutrition and lifestyle recommendations. The guide will include descriptions of the experiments that need to be carried out today to extend our lives right now.
The Millennium Project is conducting a Real-Time Delphi Survey and would
like your input.
They want you to share your judgments about how future technology over the next 35 years (artificial narrow intelligence, artificial general intelligence, Internet of Things, robotics, synthetic biology, nanotechnology, 3D/4D printing, self-driving vehicles, drones, mobile/cloud, augmented reality/holography, etc.) could affect the future of work, and what should be done to create positive conditions.
The Lifeboat Foundation mourns the passing of our Kenneth W. Harris who worked to “Safeguard Humanity” until the end of his life. Ken also served the World Future Society and its National Capital chapter for many years. He was also a field editor on transportation for TechCast Global and a member of the Association for Professional Futurists.
We have made progress on our Interactive Friendly AI project and have a
prototype available at
The most interesting part of this project is that our AI can use multiple engines that are hosted at lifeboat.com and elsewhere. If you have an engine that you wish to include in this project, let us know.
Even if you are not a programmer you can provide flowcharts detailing questions and answers you think our AI should know. Email [email protected] with the subject “Lifeboat Foundation AI” if you wish to help in any way including providing feedback.
