“I consider myself a post-humanist” — Francesca Ferrando interview

Posted by in category: transhumanism

I recently interviewed post-humanist Dr Francesca Ferrando on the relationship between the global transhumanist and post-humanist movements – might be of interest!

Blown away by the support since I launched my YouTube channel focused on futurist/transhumanist topics a couple of months back & have decided to invest in better equipment to boost the quality. In the meantime very grateful for any subscribers 😊.

A New Bionic Eye Could Give Robots and the Blind 20/20 Vision

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, nanotechnology, robotics/AI, solar power, sustainability, transhumanism

Good news.

In a paper published last week in Nature, though, researchers from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology devised a way to build photosensors directly into a hemispherical artificial retina. This enabled them to create a device that can mimic the wide field of view, responsiveness, and resolution of the human eye.

“The structural mimicry of Gu and colleagues’ artificial eye is certainly impressive, but what makes it truly stand out from previously reported devices is that many of its sensory capabilities compare favorably with those of its natural counterpart,” writes Hongrui Jiang, an engineer at the University of Wisconsin Madison, in a perspective in Nature.

This Bionic Eye Is Better Than a Real One, Scientists Say

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, transhumanism

Other researchers who were not involved in the project pointed out that plenty of work still has to be done to eventually be able to connect it to the human visual system, as Scientific American reports.

But some are hopeful.

“I think in about 10 years, we should see some very tangible practical applications of these bionic eyes,” Hongrui Jiang, an electrical engineer at the University of Wisconsin–Madison who was not involved in the research, told Scientific American.

Has the transhumanist movement lost its way? Nikola Danaylov interview

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, singularity, space, transhumanism

You might like this interview I did with futurist writer Nikola Danaylov, who runs the Singularity Weblog and wrote ‘Conversations with the Future: 21 Visions for the 21st century’, on how advances in AI could utterly transform human society and the health of the global transhumanist movement.

I’m trying to grow my futurism YouTube channel (transhumanism, AI, space colonisation etr) so if this is of interest to you I’d be very grateful for any subscribers.

How Fashion Designers Are Thwarting Facial Recognition Surveillance

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, surveillance, transhumanism

Reason has done a great video and article on AI facial recognition, surveillance, etc, and combined it with fashion ideas. It’s created by Zach Weissmueller and Justin Monticello. My interview (as well as others) show up throughout the 11 min video. This is really important watching for the coming future:

Privacy activists say we should be alarmed by the rise of automated facial recognition surveillance. Transhumanist Zoltan Istvan says it’s time to embrace the end of privacy as we know it.
