Japan Quickens Humanoid Robots

 

 

"

Japan’s biggest bank is preparing to unveil robot employees with a human touch.

Nao, a 58-centimetre (1ft 11)-tall humanoid developed by the French company Aldebaran Robotics – a subsidiary of the Japanese telecoms and internet giant SoftBank - will begin work on a trial basis at one or two branches of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group from April.

Depending on his performance, more robots could appear at other branches in the coming months." >>>

A.I. Ruthless Acceleration

"PARIS — For a long time, artificial intelligence was little more than science fiction — now it's now just a matter of time until it becomes reality. The boom of computing capabilities have seen the power of servers multiplied a billion times over in the span of just 31 years, making it likely that an artificial intelligence superior to our own will emerge in the coming decades.

The GAFA (Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon) Internet giants, as well as IBM, have all been investing massively in the field. Leading the pack is Google, whose chief engineer Ray Kurzweil believes that a self-aware AI a billion times more powerful than all of the human brains on the planet will crush human intelligence as early as 2045. "We will make machines that can reason, think and make things better than we do," adds Sergey Brin, one of Google's co-founders.

This is a disturbing prospect. Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and SpaceX, says "artificial intelligence is potentially more dangerous" than nuclear weapons. To compete with robots, Google proposes transhumanism, i.e. turning humans into cyborgs.

Kurzweil predicts that, by 2035, we'll have nanobots implanted into our brains and connected to our neurons to "upgrade" both our mental and physical capabilities. The point will be to prevent us from being (too) inferior to machines and thus protect us from being turned into their slaves, in a Matrix-like scenario. Upgrading technologies will be the only way to maintain a certain autonomy. Paradoxically, the ultimate tool to avoid the human race's vassalization would also be the instrument of its suicide. The human-AI hybrid would indeed mean the death knell for the 1.0 biological human."

Microscopy Reaches Limits of Life

arman350.jpg

Scientists have captured the first detailed microscopy images of ultra-small bacteria that are believed to be about as small as life can get. The research was led by scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley. The existence of ultra-small bacteria has been debated for two decades, but there hasn't been a comprehensive electron microscopy and DNA-based description of the microbes until now."

Mongols Caused huge Pollution

 

Tiger-Leaping-Gorge-111.jpg?resize=2743%

 

"Geologists from the University of Pittsburgh and the Chinese Academy of Sciences have found pollution from heavy metals like lead, zinc and cadmium spiked between 1271AD and 1368AD in the Yunnan region of south west China.

They say that this pollution was caused by large amounts of silver smelting driven by the Mongolian hunger for the precious metal, which they used to make coins, jewellery and art.

Why do you post things completely unrelated to quantum archaeology and why are you still not able to combine your posts? I mean you're either trolling, or doing it for the sake of spamming bumps for this thread. Its just obnoxious and pointless.

 

Make a new thread called random interesting news spamming thread so that way you aren't going off topic all the time.

What are the events in the QA-grid that allow one to nail down how the brain of a person 50000 years ago was wired? Mind you, we do not even know if such a person ever existed. The "grid" cannot verify anything since thereäs an infinite number of possible persons and brain-states that lead to the same set of events in the grid. There's a limit on what can do known about the past based on incomplete information (and our information is VERY incomplete).

The "grid" cannot verify anything since thereäs an infinite number of possible persons and brain-states that lead to the same set of events in the grid. There's a limit on what can do known about the past based on incomplete information (and our information is VERY incomplete). 

 

You map known events into it, then deduce all other plot points: we should be able to do all life, and with enough hypercomputing, all the world's environment.

 

The brain of a 50,000 year old person will have formed in a certain way dictated by his DNA etc and his environment (which includes other people)

 

This is a vast Grid, but not if you count on vast computing abilities.

 

I dunno how you get there are infinite numbers of brain states/possible persons, but even if there were, we have Kantorian infinity maths to deal with that. But ur right I'm assuming the possible states are a finite number.

 

This finite number is whittled down as the grid runs by eliminating impossibles as you deduce from knowns from the records we have inputted.

 

Yes our information is very incomplete, but that may be enough to describe all the relevant past eg

 

google a full body and facial reconstruction from a piece of bone of a Neanderthal!

 

For over a year we've been doing facial reconstruction from DNA alone.

 

It's normal in Archaeology to have little to work with and yet get great results.

 

As hypercomputers come, then as A.I. comes in about 2022 resurrections should follow.

 

One human brain is expected to be reached by 2029 and Superintelligence  soon after.

 [ reply to objection that ancient thoughts are incapable of being recovered:

 

Retrodiction

 

Men do have unique thoughts. At the limits of what they are. And these seem non- retrodictable as they are governed by mood.

 

This is nothing to mathematics, and routine to artificial intelligence which can already compose, write, sing, paint, memorize, calculate, plan  - and as robots actuate - with speeding skill.

 

Pondering this present, which of your thoughts are unique? Which could not be recreated by higher order intelligence? What tasks do you do today that you have not done a thousand times? How is this hid from the future ? How is anything?

 

From the course of the sperm up the uterus to the death chortle phut of the last electron of nerve, everything in you is caused by inevitable physics and cannot be hidden by numbers of events, which is bulk layers of time snowed into quantity. They wait for computing to separate and simulate ]

KING KONG's LOST City FOUND!

"An expedition to Honduras has emerged from the jungle with dramatic news of the discovery of a mysterious culture's lost city, never before explored. The team was led to the remote, uninhabited region by long-standing rumors that it was the site of a storied "White City," also referred to in legend as the "City of the Monkey God.

The expedition has surveyed the ruins. They’ve mapped plazas, mounds and pyramids.

Most significantly, an cache of stone sculptures has found — untouched since the site was abandoned up to 1000 years ago.

Ceremonial seats. Carved vessels. Stylised creatures.

All are richly adorned with stylised snakes and vultures.

“The undisturbed context is unique,” he said, “this is a powerful ritual display, to take wealth objects like this out of circulation.”

Fisher says the most striking object was that of a “were-jaguar”, with its helmeted, zoomorphic (combined human and animal) features. It may have been associated with a ritualised-warfare ballgame which was a common part of Central American culture at that time, he said.

The cache has been documented, but left unexcavated.

The exact location of the find is being kept secret to protect it from looters."

:) Turing Church refers to mathematical logician Alonzo Church & his doctoral student  @ Princeton Alan Turning & has nothing to do with religion!

 

Quantum Archaeology has been kicked off wikipedia, kicked out of philosophy here, out of A.I. here.

Evolving robot brains

268678.jpg

Researchers are using the principles of Darwinian evolution to develop robot brains that can navigate mazes, identify and catch falling objects, and work as a group to determine in which order they should exit and re-enter a room. The projects are all part of a larger effort to create artificial brains that think, plan, and predict, and will ultimately be conscious."

Long-Lost Fortress Of Genghis Khan Discovered In Mongolia

 

resurrecting soon!

Genghis_Khan_ThronePortrait.jpg

 

A team of Mongolian and Japanese archaeologists confirmed last week that a fortress found in southwestern Mongolia more than a decade ago was built by none other than the legendary Genghis Khan.

The military outpost -- described as a “fortress surrounded by an earthen wall” -- was first unearthed in 2001, according to the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun. Among the artifacts found at the site were Chinese ceramics, wood chips, and animal bones." more>>>

Nano medicine advancing to treat arteries' plaque

http://www.gizmag.co...-attacks/36342/

Scientists have developed targeted, biodegradable nano "drones" to deliver anti-inflammatory drugs that heal and stabilize arterial plaque in mice. Their work could pave the way for more effective prevention of heart attack and stroke in humans caused by atherosclerosis, in which artery walls thicken and suffer reduced plasticity due to an accumulation of white blood cells.

nano-drones-healing-drug-heart-attacks-1

The study, conducted by researchers from Colombia University Medical Center (CUMC), Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and Harvard Medical School (HMS), showed for the first time that it is possible to treat inflammation and repair plaques via highly targeted nanoparticles. It is also the first example of using targeted nanomedicine to reduce atherosclerosis in animals." more>>>
