Human augmentation through Swarm Intelligence

  Unanimous AI is a US company that is leveraging from the emerging intelligence that can derive from pooling several brains and computers into “swarm” of intelligence. They have created Swarm AI, a tool to pull brains together glueing them with computer AI. The result: emerging intelligence. The cluster of …

Transhumanism: Increasing Human Thought Capabilities VII

In this second round of posts on Transhumanism, stimulated both by reading the Frost&Sullivan report on Transhumanism and by the preparation of the second White Paper on Symbiotic Autonomous Systems I have addressed the possibilities of increasing human thought capabilities. Clearly I expressed very personal opinions on the feasibility of …

Will our offsprings be smarter than us? – I

In my previous post in this series I included a clip of an interview with dr. Michio Kaku, a US theoretical physicist and futurist with Japanese grandparents, where he made the point that the basic, structural ingredients of intelligence with respect to evolution can be found in the opposable thumb, …

Are we smarter than our ancestors? – II

In the closing of the previous post I tried to make clear that the focus here is on smartness not on intelligence. There are tools to measure intelligence, IQ tests. However, these tools are using measuring sticks that are suited to our current view of Intelligence. Were we to apply …

I’ve got a feeling

A collaboration among researchers at Stanford and Seoul National University has resulted in the creation of an artificial sensory nerve. A sensory nerve is a complex entity, part of the somatosensory system, that is able to integrate different physical stimuli into a tactile information. Our sense of touch generate data …
