This New Website Simplifies The Legal Boundaries Of 3D Printing

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, law

Genie out of the bottle.


A new guide into 3D printing rights and responsibilities has been launched to explain what consumers need to know before printing in 3D, including the potential risks in creating and sharing 3D printable files, and what kinds of safeguards are in place.

The website “Everything you need to get started in 3D printing” was developed by staff at the University of Melbourne in response to the growing number of users keen to find, share, and create 3D printed goods online.

A new nanometric conductive ink

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, law

New ink for printers to improve speed and conserve ink. I know a few legal and accounting firms that would love this.


Nano Dimension Ltd has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Nano Dimension Technologies, has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the development of a new nanometric conductive ink, which is based on a unique synthesis.

The new nanoparticle synthesis further minimizes the size of the silver nanoparticles particles in the company’s ink products. The new process achieves silver nanoparticles as small as 4 nanometers.

Gas sensors ‘see’ through soil to analyze microbial interactions

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, genetics, law

Can serve many uses such as geneology, etc. However, the bigger advancement will be with criminal/ legal investigations.


Rice University researchers have developed gas biosensors to “see” into soil and allow them to follow the behavior of the microbial communities within.

In a study in the American Chemical Society’s journal Environmental Science and Technology, the Rice team described using genetically engineered bacteria that release methyl halide gases to monitor microbial gene expression in samples in the lab.

Science Council to make clear position on lifting military-linked research ban

Posted by in categories: law, military, physics, science, security

Interesting.


The Science Council of Japan will make clear its position on military-linked research — possibly overturning a decades-long ban — by early next year, the academic group said Friday.

A committee of 15 academics from fields ranging from physics, political science to law held its first meeting to discuss whether to revise statements released by the council in 1950 and 1967 stating that the group will “never engage in military research.”

Wild Transhumanist Campaign Tech We’ll See in Future Presidential Elections

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, drones, geopolitics, law, robotics/AI, transhumanism, virtual reality

My new story for Vice Motherboard on the future of political campaining:


Lest we think future elections are all about the candidates, perhaps the largest possibility on the horizon could come from digital direct democracy—the concept where citizens participate in real time input in the government. I gently advocate for a fourth branch of government, in which the people can vote on issues that matter to them and their decrees could have real legal consequence on Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Presidency.

Of course, that’s only if government even exists anymore. It’s possible the coming age of artificial intelligence and robots may replace the need for politicians. At least human ones. Some experts think superintelligent AI might be here in 10 to 15 years, so why not have a robot president that is totally altruistic and not susceptible to lobbyists and personal desires? This machine leader would simply always calculate the greatest good for the greatest amount of people, and go with that. No more Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, or whatever else we are.

The artificial intelligence revolution in legal services

Posted by in categories: law, robotics/AI

Years ago I was expert witness for an IP case involving some very badly designed and coded software. Case was a significant mount of money, and I had to review tons of documents, code, and diagrams to help prepare the case and give my deposition. It would have been nice to have a bot to assist. So, I do like what I am reading in this article.


Rebecca Hawkes, head of marketing at RAVN Systems, discusses why artificial intelligence is showing promise in the legal sector.

There’s been a considerable amount of media hype around artificial intelligence recently, but this isn’t just the latest buzzword.
