Sending My Stanford University Professor into Awe, Bewilderment, and Paralysis!

Posted by in category: futurism

What in 2014 I told my own Stanford University Business Analytics Class that Caused my P.hD.-ed Sociology Professor to Set Himself Into Shock and Outrage and STONE SILENCE AND PARALYSIS!

(What my associated NASA Hard Rocket Scientists told me fifteen (15) years ago.)

There is not Society, but outright NONLINEAR ENTROPY (The Second Law of Thermodynamics as it is understood in optimal Classic Physics). To cope with this hard indisputable truth, simple linear human mind will never suffice UNLESS SAID MIND IS FORCEFULLY ANTINATURALLY MARSHALED INTO MULTIFARIOUS COLOSSALLY NONLINEAR ALGORITHMIC COUNTERINTUITIVENESS.

BMW Launches Its Answer to Tesla’s Supercharger Network

Posted by in category: transportation

By — Wired

The lightweight, compact DC Fast Charger will power 80% of the BMW i3's battery in 30 minutes.

The biggest problem automakers selling electric cars face is limited range. No one wants to get caught without any juice. To get around this concern, Tesla, whose Model S offers the best range (up to 265 miles), is building a vast network of “Supercharger” stations that make it possible to take epic road trips. Now BMW is following suit, launching a network of charging stations to make owning its first all-electric car, the range-handicapped i3, more convenient.

To Aubrey de Grey, the body is a machine. Just as a restored classic car can celebrate its hundredth birthday in peak condition, in the future, we’ll maintain our bodies’ cellular components to stave off the diseases of old age and live longer, healthier lives.

Dr. de Grey is cofounder and Chief Science Officer of the SENS Research Foundation and faculty at Singularity University’s November Exponential Medicine conference—an event exploring the healthcare impact of technologies like low-cost genomic sequencing, artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, gene therapy, and more.

Posted by in category: materials

Kurzweil AI

A team of Korean researchers has synthesized hexagonal carbon nanosheets similar to graphene, using a polymer. The new material is free of the defects and complexity involved in producing graphene, and can substitute for graphene as transparent electrodes for organic solar cells and in semiconductor chips, the researchers say.
