Study shows that ketamine switches neuronal activity in the neocortex

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, law, neuroscience

Human beings can sometimes experience dissociative states, moments in which they feel disconnected from their body and the world around them. While these states have been linked to many psychiatric conditions, they can also be elicited by the intake of some legal and illegal drugs.

One of the most renowned dissociation-inducing drugs is ketamine, an anesthetic commonly used to sedate patients or reduce pain resulting from medical procedures. In recent years, ketamine has also been found to be a potentially valuable treatment for some cases of depression.

While several studies have investigated the therapeutic effects of this strong anesthetic, so far very little is known about the cellular and neuronal mechanisms behind the dissociative states it produces. A paper by a team of researchers at University of Pennsylvania, recently published in Nature Neuroscience, might shed some light on these so far elusive processes.

Darknet markets generate millions in revenue selling stolen personal data, supply chain study finds

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, law

It is common to hear news reports about large data breaches, but what happens once your personal data is stolen? Our research shows that, like most legal commodities, stolen data products flow through a supply chain consisting of producers, wholesalers and consumers. But this supply chain involves the interconnection of multiple criminal organizations operating in illicit underground marketplaces.

The stolen data begins with producers—hackers who exploit vulnerable systems and steal such as , bank account information and Social Security numbers. Next, the stolen data is advertised by wholesalers and distributors who sell the data. Finally, the data is purchased by consumers who use it to commit various forms of fraud, including fraudulent credit card transactions, identity theft and phishing attacks.

This trafficking of stolen data between producers, wholesalers and consumers is enabled by darknet markets, which are websites that resemble ordinary e-commerce websites but are accessible only using special browsers or authorization codes.

Ambient Sci Fi Music For People Wishing They Were Born in The Year 3336

Posted by in categories: law, media & arts, military, space

🔺An ambient Sci Fi journey that evolves from light to dark, evoking imagery of distant, undiscovered secrets of the beyond. Let the music guide your mind and prepare for a ride smile In all seriousness though, this is quite a nice one. Not superhappy with the results, but it’s good enough. It’s reminescent of my older sci fi journeys. At times you may find it to dark and pressing, but the light will come again. Also, the ambience in this one is really cool. I took my time to sound design passing spaceships and shuttles as distant traffic in the background and it works extremely well and feels totally believable imo. Think I’m gonna do a video just for that ambience. Oh, visuals is kinda great too smile Thanks for your support guys smile Have a great day everyone🔺 SEO: I create ambient space music, ambient sci fi music, ambient cyberpunk music, ambient fantasy music to be used as ambient background music. You can use the music as ambient music for study, ambient music for focus, ambient music for work, ambient music for sleep, ambient music for relaxation, ambient music for reading, ambient music for writing — whatever really smile All my ambient music contains rain ambience or nature ambience. My music is best described as atmospheric ambient music, soothing ambient music, relaxing ambient music, tranquil ambient music, ethereal ambient music, cinematic ambient music, dark ambient music.

Legal Personhood For AI Is Taking A Sneaky Path That Makes AI Law And AI Ethics Very Nervous Indeed

Posted by in categories: ethics, law, robotics/AI

Would you like to see the classic magic trick of a rabbit being pulled out of a hat? I hope so since you are about to witness something ostensibly magical, though it has to do with Artificial Intelligence (AI) rather than rabbits and hats.

Here’s the deal.

A lot of debate takes place about whether we ought to recognize AI with some form of legal personhood. Surprisingly, some believe that we can already shoehorn AI into legal personhood by a bit of corporate legal wrangling. See what this is all about.

Copyright and Artificial Intelligence: An Exceptional Tale

Posted by in categories: economics, government, law, robotics/AI

As the US government begins to consider some of the legal implications for copyright in connection with the development and deployment of artificial intelligence, it is important to first step back to ensure that we are properly guided by context and a proper understanding of our goals — grounded in an informed grasp of the relationship of copyright to the development of AI, and a fair observation of the state of legal developments around the world. Far too many observers have oversimplified how various countries have addressed the relationship between copyright and AI. The reality is that all who have done so have rejected the notion that copyright is not implicated, and have developed legal norms which carefully limit the scope of any exceptions with an eye towards facilitating licensing, even when they seek to expand the development of AI as a national economic imperative.

I have written about the approach taken by the EU in the updated Copyright Directive, and note here that despite claims about Japan’s legislation, even their provisions — as manifested in the 2018 amendments, are designed to avoid conflict with the legitimate interests of copyright owners. While I don’t necessarily agree with Japan’s approach, it is important to highlight that even its exceptions, as I understand them: recognize that text and data mining/machine learning does in fact implicate copyright; apply only to materials that have been lawfully acquired; require that the use of each work is “minor” relative to the TDM effort; and provide that license terms must be honored. While it remains unclear to me that Japan’s goal of respecting copyright as required by international law has been achieved, it is important to understand that claims that Japan has removed copyright as an issue that must be addressed in the development of AI are inaccurate.
