The Argus ii Bionic Eye Is Coming And It Will Make Us Superhuman

It has been estimated that 285 million people across the world spend every day coping with some visual impairment. There are a wide variety of treatments already on the market to treat mild visual impairments, but as of yet, no one has come up with the complete solution to cure total visual impairment or blindness. However, hope is on the horizon with an invention straight out of science fiction – the bionic eye. NEW BIONIC EYES COULD CHANGE THE WORLD FOREVER Bionic eyes, also referred to as retinal prosthesis systems, bridge the gap between the light that enters the eye and the optic nerve, which translate and communicate images to the brain. There is currently a bionic eye on the market in the United States. The FDA-approved device is called the Argus II and is manufactured by a company called second sight. It uses a camera, integrated into a […] Read More

Scientists Develop Robot That Can ”Breed”

By: Nicholas West | – When I wrote an article in January 2014 entitled, “Robots to Breed with Each Other and Humans by 2045,” it was met with some skepticism to say the least. Although some very influential and credible people in robotics and cybernetics were the ones making the claims, there was a bit of leap of definition required when talking about robots literally “breeding” and having “babies.” George Zarkadakis, an artificial intelligence engineer, defined breeding in terms of autonomous robots aiming to produce superior offspring, whether through 3D printing or at the molecular level through their silicon and carbon make-up. Professor Noel Sharkey from England’s Sheffield University pointed to the same concept as the “Wikipedia for Robots” – through a simple software swap, new intelligence could be created, as well as the likelihood of other upgrades like virus protection. Other studies went even further to suggest that […] Read More

2013: Stanford Neuroscientist: ‘We’re Now Able To Eavesdrop On The Brain In Real Life’

RT Neuroscientists at Stanford University have made a major breakthrough with regards to how the human brain engages in quantitative thought, and some say it’s opening the door for being able to someday eavesdrop on the mind’s inner-workings. A team at Stanford’s School of Medicine had their findings published this week in the journal Nature Communications, and their eye-catching result is being considered a big step to understanding how the brain operates, specifically in terms of numbers. After monitoring the brain waves of three seizure patients, the scientists determined that a particular part of the mind became active when the subjects were asked to solve mathematical equations, but also when quantitative terms — such as “more than” or “an extra little bit” — were spoken during routine discussions. Bruce Goldman wrote about the study for the Stanford School of Medicine website and said the team of scientists “collected the first […] Read More

The Government Is Researching How To Use Technology To Change Your Religious Beliefs

By Michael Snyder The Truth Wins Should the U.S. government be trying to figure out how to use technology to change the beliefs of “religious extremists”?  Before you answer yes to that question, perhaps you should consider whether or not the U.S. government considers you to be a “religious extremist”.  After all, as I have documented previously, conservatives, libertarians, Tea Party activists and evangelical Christians are all considered to be “extremists” in various U.S. government documents.  So if we open up Pandora’s Box and say that it is okay for the government to use technology to wipe away the religious beliefs of some “extremists”, what would stop them from using that same technology on you someday?  The truth is that this kind of technology should never be used on anyone, and it is very disturbing that the government seems so determined to develop it. We would probably know very little […] Read More
