Brain and computer learning together

Brain Computer Interfaces work at two levels, hard and soft. Each one fuels the other and both are needed to establish an effective communications. The hard part captures the electrical activity of neurones, the soft part interprets this activity to derive the meaning. Getting more accurate and selective data on …

The future of Health Care is tied to AI and big data

The future of Health care, broadly speaking, is progressing along two directions: better understanding of the single individual and leveraging data from a multitude of individuals. Both are fuelled by increasing capability of “seeing” what is going on -that includes the genome sequencing-, thanks to better sensors and harvesting capabilities …

Beyond the Turing test

The Turing test was proposed to evaluate if a human can not distinguish the (written) interaction between a human and a machine. You type something and you get your reply. And you go on trying to find out who is actually answering your messages? Another human or a computer? The …

Jumping into the void: Vitrifixation

In the Symbiotic Autonomous Systems Initiative we are looking at human augmentation technologies, including the ones that are at an early experimental stage but might become impactful in the coming decades. Among these we are looking at development in brain to computer interactions, digital twins, artificial intelligence and distributed / …
