Elon Musk envisions a world in which humans are outfitted with micro-sized “neural lace” technology. When it reaches its full potential, the effects will be nothing short of mind-blowing. We will be able to control physical objects with our thoughts, have conversations between minds with no words, and literally live other people’s experiences, including all forms of physical activity.
Researchers have only tried this on mice, but it worked! In the study, mice were injected with engineered cells that produce insulin when prompted by a smartphone app that measures sugar levels. Wow! Read about it here…
On Twitter, Musk wrote that the truck will be revealed in September and that the technology utilized is “seriously next level.” Musk also mentioned that the company is in the process of developing a pickup truck. That project won’t be unveiled for 18 to 24 months, however.
With this new synthetic leaf created by Wyatt Pontius and Liam Wallace, oxygen levels could exponentially increase by launching the leaves into the world so that the levels could reach whatever is necessary for the rapidly increasing population. More oxygen could mean cleaner air too, although this would have to be coupled with decreased carbon output.
Unlike Google Translate, Travis uses artificial intelligence to translate foreign languages. That means the translations become smarter, more native and more accurate as it is utilized. Additionally, Google Translate requires correct spelling and an excess of typing, whereas Travis simply translates languages at the touch of a button. It utilizes voice recognition; as a result, conversation is able to flow more naturally.
Musk has discussed how humans are becoming semi-cyborgs with small chips, artificial eyes and many other biotechnological advancements being installed into their bodies. In one recent interview, Musk suggested we’re linked to everything that has an on and off switch, restricting the human interference in these boundaries by having to touch things.
University of Texas Professor John Goodenough along with Maria Helena Braga, a senior researcher from his department, have come up with a cheap, long-lasting, and powerful battery that is made of non-combustible components — meaning that your cell phone won’t explode in your pocket with this new battery.
Today, predicting the direction in which technology is heading is a lot easier than it was 65 years ago. Unfortunately, these advancements don’t always have the potential to benefit mankind, sometimes the opposite is true. Is our way of life, or indeed all of humanity, at risk from these dangers?
Should you present the innovative iPod and iPad to your children? Steve Jobs wouldn’t, and all things considered as well…
In the 1980s scientist, Benjamin Libet conducted an experiment. He ‘discovered’ that what seems to be free will or the conscious choice to do or not do something is really just the observance of something that has already happened. This completely rocked the foundations of what most thought of as a prerequisite for being human and the long-held religious view that free will must always be honored.
Sundrop Farms doesn’t rely on land to grow food. With the use of coconut husks, 23,000 mirrors to reflect and harvest solar energy, desalinated water and nearly 50,000 acres of land, the start-up has successfully developed a method for growing 17,000 tons of fresh food annually.
The modular floating farms are not a reality yet but the concept behind it is sustainable and highly necessary with the rapidly growing human population and the equally declining access to natural resources.
Based on the outcome of millions of video game sessions it monitored, the results indicate that as artificial intelligence becomes more complex, it is more likely to take extreme measures to ensure victory, including sabotage and greed.
