This is a nice documentary summing up everything in the AI world and asking some important questions on how we should navigate the future world.

It's a 3D model of a living human cell that lets scientists study the interior structures of a cell even when they can only see the exterior and the nucleus the largest structure in a cell.

The use of artificial intelligence has several advantages over other methods of studying the inside of cells, Johnson says.

Techniques that rely on genetic alteration, special dyes, or intense light, tend to change or damage the very cells a scientist is trying to study, he says. Also, those techniques rely on costly equipment that is not available in every lab.

that is pretty cool. It's making humans lazier, but it's still cool tech.

For those interested - Elon and his company Neuralink gave a presentation on their progress last night.

Skip to 1hr 30 min where the presentation starts.

Not exactly comfortable with an augmented vision of the future, being wholly satisfied with being a biologic being.

Same here, I have my reservations, but then I have to remind myself that we never stop progressing forward. It's really the next logical step:

From huge mainframe computers -> desktop -> laptop -> phone/tablet -> wearables

The next step from wearables has to be penetration somewhere in the body....

If what they are really doing can first cure brain diseases and back problems, I'm all for it. The human cyborg stuff can come later.

I’m always more concerned about how this kind of thing can/will be harnessed for evil.

It will be tricky! We are already connected to Narrow AI - our phones. Society can't live without them now and AI will only get smarter, so we will have to do something.....

This was a fascinating interview on computer architecture, AI, and autonomous driving. The hour and half flew by!

Another great interview, this time with Alex Garland. As someone who loves tech, I absolutely adore Ex Machina (saw it three times in the theater and own it) because I think it's the first movie since 2001 that explored the concept of AI on an intellectual level instead of action based worlds.
