When convenience meets surveillance: AI at the corner store

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, surveillance

At some convenience stores, an A.I. system may bar the door if you look like the suspected criminals in its database, or if you’re wearing a mask. That’s part of the growing use of facial recognition and video analytics, a…

Soldiers’ Art: What traumatic brain injury feels like

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, military, neuroscience

Active-duty military members suffering from PTSD and traumatic brain injuries made these masks in an art therapy group at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, located at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

This mask was created by an Airman who was exposed to multiple blast injuries in combat while working on a bomb disposal unit, called EOD — Explosive Ordnance Disposal. The mask incorporates the laurels, shield, and lightning bolts of the EOD insignia.

Top 22 Best Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Movies of All Time

Posted by in categories: entertainment, robotics/AI

Recently, we have started to hear the concept of artificial intelligence as often as we have never met. This technology, which is no longer a fantastic science fiction element but is included in our lives, is ranked first among the technology trends that will shape the years to come.

Artificial intelligence, which can be explained by the fact that computers can make use of human thinking, reasoning, perception, comprehension, judgment and inference abilities, is the understanding of information about the environment of a machine in practice.

In this way, an artificial intelligence system optimizes the acquired data and becomes usable in daily life. We can say that many studies have been done about artificial intelligence from past to present, some of them being shelved and some of them pioneering today’s technology.

Scientists are searching for a mirror universe. It could be sitting right in front of you

Posted by in category: particle physics

If the “mirrorverse” exists, upcoming experiments involving subatomic particles could reveal it.

A mirrorverse could be just as real as our own universe but almost completely cut off from it. Jackson Gibbs / for NBC News.

2029: The Year Humanity Has Become a Race of the Immortals

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, nanotechnology, robotics/AI

We’re now rapidly approaching a pivotal moment in the history of this planet, when through scientific discovery an intelligent species could become a race of demigods, THE RACE OF THE IMMORTALS.

It’s quite achievable now. In fact, that will probably happen in two stages: First stage — we have to extend our lifespan with ever-improving Biotechnology. Aging is declared a desease, and around 2029, with the advances in Nanotechnology and Artificial Intelligence, we will be able start to reverse aging and add more than one year every year to an average life expectancy.

So if you’re alive in 2030, chances are you’ll live to 100 and beyond. What life would be like on the other side, when you know you can live indefinitely long? Well, we’ll get used to it and adjust accordingly. We’ll merge into the Global Brain, and emerge as the Global Mind.
