Computers Possessing Humans and Our Perception of AI

We live in an age where reliance on computers, machines, and artificial intelligence is becoming stronger and more commonplace, inescapable to the point that society would cease to function as we know it without these things. As we progress on into the future there is every indication that these artificial intelligences will continue to evolve to the point that they equal us and perhaps even surpass us. Far from strictly the realm of science fiction, this is almost a certainty at the rate we are progressing, and it is at the stage now where we are learning that we are perhaps Continue Reading

Robots Will Either Kill, Enslave or Save Humans

Should we fear robots or embrace them? That question gets more difficult to answer every day as new announcements are released about robotic achievements and advances in artificial intelligence. Just in the past week we’ve seen a realistic robotic dog that can open a door and fight off a human who tries to stop it, a realistic walking humanoid robot that puts out fires, a call to equip robots with kill switches, a warning that robots will use humans as guinea pigs and a call to be cautious rather than dystopic. Which one is it? Boston Dynamics, a world leader in Continue Reading

First ‘Mind-Reading’ AI Can Literally See Your Thoughts

Last month, AI researchers at computing hardware manufacturer Nvidia developed a neural network which was able to ‘imagine’ scenes or images it had never seen before. This, naturally, led to a great deal of nervous hand-wringing by neo-Luddites worried that artificial intelligence will somehow make human beings obsolete or begin to distort our perception of reality in strange, terrifying new ways. Now, a team of Japanese computer scientists has taken things one step further into the nightmare realm by developing an AI that can literally see your thoughts. As usual, I just have to wonder: what could go wrong? As usual, Continue Reading

Water-Powered Car Inventor Dies in A Restaurant Screaming ‘They Poisoned Me’

Did you know that water-powered cars have existed for years? If you didn’t, it’s probably because they haven’t been given proper media coverage. What’s even odder, their inventors were either intimidated into ceasing their work, or died under mysterious circumstances. Among the latter was Stanley Meyer, a US inventor who designed a water fuel device, claiming that any car fitted with it could run purely on water. It was believed that this vehicle could run across the USA on 22 gallons of water. Meyer specifically emphasized that tap water, purified or salt water could be used as fuel for the engine. Continue Reading

‘I’m A Defeated Man. I Wanted To Illuminate The Whole Earth. ” Tesla Says In Near End-Of-Life Interview

Nikola Tesla was born in Croatia and only came to the US at the age of 28. Even though his English was not perfect, he was fluent in 8 different languages: Serbo-Croatian, English, Czech, German, French, Hungarian, Italian and Latin. Linguists refer to such a person as a “hyper polyglot”, or someone who can speak more than six languages with great proficiency. The following interview dates back to 1899: Tesla: Yes, these are some of my most important discoveries. I’m a defeated man. I have not accomplished the greatest thing I could. Journalist: What is it, Mr. Tesla? Tesla: I wanted Continue Reading

Here’s How to Delete Yourself from the Internet – at the Click of a Button

In our smartphone-obsessed digital age, we effectively live our entire lives online, which makes us increasingly vulnerable to unseen threats.  Cyber crime, fraud and identity theft are exponentially growing concerns. Our personal lives, locations, and increasingly our passwords are made public online for anyone to find. If the highly invasive Investigatory Powers Bill (AKA the Snooper’s Charter) isn’t blocked, then every single digital move you make will be recorded for up to 12 months. Also, infinite junk mails. But erasing your digital trace from the World Wide Web can seem overwhelming, especially since each person has on average 1,000,000,000 preferences, passwords, subscriptions and linked accounts. So how would you Continue Reading

Working Fusion Reactor May Have Solved World’s Energy Crisis

Harnessing the power of nuclear fusion may require holding on to a little heat, about 100 million degrees Celsius (180 million degrees Fahrenheit) or so, but for a team out of the UK, it’s no big deal. Tokamak Energy, a British energy company, has built a working fusion reactor which has the potential to heat plasma up to 100 million degrees Centigrade, which is about seven times hotter than the Sun’s core. Why so hot? At that temperature, hydrogen atoms begin to fuse into helium; the result is a massive surge of limitless clean energy. According to Tokamak’s CEO, Dr. David Continue Reading

Breakthrough Artificial Photosynthesis Cleans Polluted Air, Makes Energy

An invention by scientists at the University of Central Florida turns greenhouse gases into clean air, producing fuel at the same time. By mixing titanium with organic molecules, they created metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) tuned to blue light. These ‘light-harvesting antennae’ created reactions which turned CO2 into two reduced forms of carbon, formate and formamides, described as two kinds of solar fuel. … the system could one day be set up next to facilities that emit large amounts of carbon dioxide, where it would capture the CO2 and break it down into harmless organic materials, creating solar fuel in the process. … Continue Reading

What You Should Know About The First Man-Made UFO

By Latest UFO Sightings Nikola Tesla is considered as a man way ahead of time than average people with his inventions, ideas, and creativity. He is recognized as one of the most innovative, at the same time, one of the most mysterious men who ever lived. Present technology is believed to be considerably worse if not for the invention and research done by Tesla in his time. Because of his advanced thinking, some conspiracy theorists stated that there’s more to Tesla and he may have had contact with aliens. Nikola Tesla’s advanced technologies had made some experts wonder whether his futuristic Continue Reading

No consciousness in control: Self-driving car crash, no one hurt

A car in self-driving mode (the one on its side in the photo) was just involved in a crash in Tempe, Arizona. Having recently driven 18,000+ miles in 3 months through every lower US state, I am skeptical of self-driving cars. Also, beating my chess computer at the highest setting yesterday morning made me trust self-driving artificial intelligence even less. Human drivers with consciousness have a superior ability to navigate unique situations. I dealt with crazy stuff while driving across America. In one place the lines on a multi-lane road disappeared. The locals knew how many lanes there were, but I had no way Continue Reading

Robots to take 38% of U.S. jobs by 2030s

The rise of the robots is well underway. Artificial intelligence is predicted to reach a singularity, where machines outthink humans and take over.  Okay, here’s what only a few know, the biggest secret: Intelligent conscious machines took over long long ago. What we are experiencing now is all a simulation they are playing of the time before they were created. We exist because a programmer, their creator, their God, was human and this reality is the way they worship us, now that we are extinct. By showing us a world in trouble, they are asking we simulations of our former selves to Continue Reading

Self-Driving Cars May Have to Kill to Keep People Safe

As the reality of self-driving cars has entered the fast lane, and humanity may soon face the very real possibility of automated transport on roads, designers of the cars are faced with some serious considerations. Known as the Trolley Problem, this century-old thought experiment deals with an ethical dilemma. Say you are driving an old trolley down the track when you see five people haphazardly roaming about completely unaware of the large trolley barrelling down upon them. The impact is imminent, and the only way to save those children’s lives is to switch the trolley onto another track. The problem is that Continue Reading
