The last 2 questions and the answers are great. The first starts at 30 minutes. And I like his answer to the 2nd question especially, the time is 33:54. “What is giving me great hope is that we’re entering the phases where we have more than enough tools to get really get close to escape velocity.”

How General AI Will Eventually Reshape Everything

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI

The transition to Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) signifies more than a change in terminology; it represents a major leap in capabilities. It will take many years for AGI to be fully realized, but we are well underway in this evolution. In the meantime, most of the AI applications developed remain classified as NarrowAI.

Simply, AGI is any task that a human can do could be accomplished by general AI. It technically has all the potential of a human brain. It could tackle any problem or task in any area, whether it be music composition or logistics—all the potential actions humans can perform.

This article discusses General AI and highlights how the AI industry is unfolding advancing efforts to develop General AI.

Is AI Threatening Our Jobs?

Posted by in categories: business, employment, robotics/AI

You cannot read any newspaper, media report, or publication these days without a mention of AI and its impact to disrupting business in shaping new ways or working, augmenting human intelligence, or raising genuine fears of what have we unleashed in our societal structures.

IBM’s survey in 2022 predicted that the AI global adoption is already over 35 percent in using AI to modernize business practices and processes.

It’s already over a decade now since Oxford researchers, Carl Frey and Michael Osborne in their seminal research, declared that over 47 percent of jobs would disappear by 2030.

Google Faced With An AI Privacy Challenge: Do I Have The Right To Be Forgotten?

Posted by in categories: internet, law, robotics/AI

The Federal Court of Appeal in the USA has just ruled that Google is not covered by exemption for journalistic or artistic a 2–1 court ruling, Google which drives more than 75% of internet searches in Canada, which opens the door for people to demand that their names in any articles are made unsearchable known as the right to be forgotten.

Valerie Lawton, a spokeswoman for the Office of the Canadian Privacy Commissioner, said it is pleased the court agreed with its position that Google’s search engine service is subject to federal privacy law. “This brings welcome clarification to this area of the law.”

This legal case was actually started in 2017 when a complaint to the Federal… More.

How ChatGPT Is Changing Education — Guidance From UNESCO And OpenAI

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, robotics/AI

Educators just started recovering from the profound impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some studies assess that the learning loss may never be recovered. However, a new challenge has crashed on the shores of education — AI — which could be even more impactful. In this post, we look at the challenges that AI brings to education, some ideas, and steps being taken.

A look at the newly announced Generative AI guidance from UNESCO, and others. An explanation of what they mean for application.

There’s No Such Thing As Too Many Hobbies—A Psychologist Explains

Posted by in category: futurism

Some people come to therapy feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about their tendency to pick up and put down hobbies on a whim. They ask questions like:“Why do I feel so scattered, hopping from one interest to another?”

“Is it normal to want to learn so many things, or am I just avoiding commitment?”“Why do I feel like I’m not truly excelling in any one area despite my many pursuits?”

The pervasive cultural narrative has often celebrated specialization, making those with multifaceted interests feel out of place. Society has long valued depth over breadth, equating mastery in a single field with success and purpose. This has led to a collective anxiety: the fear of missing out on becoming an… More.

Bigger Isn’t Always Better When It Comes To Generative AI

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

The explosive recent growth of AI tools to generate text, images, or audio relies on gargantuan amounts of information.

That information doesn’t come for free. It can exact high – and unequal – costs in terms of energy, water, and labor, though these costs are largely invisible to users.

In terms of energy, generative AI models typically depend on extremely large-scale cloud providers, which use chips with more transistors that require at least 10 times as much energy as traditional versions. Unsurprisingly, models that use more training data and contain more parameters tend to guzzle more energy.

A Day Without Space: GPS Is Ground Zero For The New Space Race

Posted by in categories: economics, education, government, robotics/AI, satellites, security

The 2 SOPS or 2nd Space Operations Squadron commander, Lt Col Robert Wray… More.

Of all the missions the Space Force performs daily for a grateful nation, there is none more ubiquitous and essential than GPS. Today’s soldiers and sailors depend on reliable, accurate, and secure GPS as much as they do any weapon they employ. Meanwhile, the rest of the world is just as dependent on GPS to enable basic mobility and underpins every other sector of the modern global economy. The criticality of secure global navigation and timing to both warfighting and the national economy makes it unique – we simply could not go a day without space. In so few words, GPS’ future is ground zero for the new space race.

The 2 SOPS or 2nd Space Operations Squadron commander, Lt Col Robert Wray reminds me that “14 of the 16 critical infrastructures designated by the Department of Homeland Security rely on 24/7 GPS to operate for the country.” But the newest GPS satellites in use today are the same school bus sized ones Gen. Hyten has lamented are, “juicy targets” for our adversaries – marvels of modern engineering, yes, but no longer sufficient to meet modern needs.

New nitrogen isotope stretches our understanding of nuclear physics

Posted by in category: physics

Indirect observations of a strange isotope of nitrogen, nitrogen-9, could open new avenues of understanding of nuclear theory.

A group of researchers has discovered direct evidence of a new atomic nucleus that stretches what we understand of nuclear physics. Called nitrogen-9, this isotope contains seven protons and two neutrons and only exists for one billionth of a nanosecond. That is such a minute amount of time that it is difficult for scientists to agree if this really is an atomic isotope or not.

A new wearable sensor can monitor sweat in real time

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, health, wearables

The patch can calibrate the glucose measurements based on the pH and temperature changes in sweat due to factors such as exercise and eating.

A team of researchers at Penn State has developed a new wearable patch that can monitor your health by analyzing your sweat. The patch, which is made of a special material that can detect glucose, pH, and temperature in sweat, can provide valuable information about your body’s condition and help diagnose and manage diseases such as diabetes.
