What is the next wave after artificial intelligence|The Singularity Is Near|#audiobooks

Posted by in categories: information science, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI, singularity, space

This book, ‘The Singularity Is Near’, predicts the future. However, unlike most best-selling futurology books, its author, Kurzweil, is a renowned technology expert. His insights into the future are not technocratic wild fantasies but are rooted in his profound contemplation of technological principles.

This audio informs us that, due to Moore’s Law, the pace of human technological advancement in the future will far exceed our expectations. By 2045, we will reach the technological ‘Singularity’, which will profoundly alter our human condition, and technology may even enable humans to conquer the universe within a millennium.

Stem cells used to create organoids that secrete dental enamel proteins

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, nanotechnology, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI

Organoids have now been created from stem cells to secrete the proteins that form dental enamel, the substance that protects teeth from damage and decay. A multi-disciplinary team of scientists from the University of Washington in Seattle led this effort.

Organiods are the new thing, when you think about how AI, and nanotechnology changed the worldnwe live in, but years from now you will realize it, like all I have predicted since I played with a Kurzweil Keyboard when I was a child.

Scientists Regrow Retinal Cells in The Lab Using Nanotechnology

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, nanotechnology, neuroscience, Ray Kurzweil, singularity

Still a big maybe but it gives them other ideas/possibilities. Hopefully they succeed soon! My mother has glaucoma. It’ll probably be decades before this cure happens though. Unless it can be accelerated which is predicted by Ray Kurzweil in his book The Singularity is Near. I think other futurists have said similar things though I’m not familiar with all of them, I saw a talk by one for NASA.

In efforts to tackle the leading cause of blindness in developed countries, researchers have recruited nanotechnology to help regrow retinal cells.

Macular degeneration is a form of central vision loss, which has massive social, mobility, and mental consequences. It impacts hundreds of millions of people globally and is increasing in prevalence.

Gen Z’s digital natives will seem old-fashioned next to ‘Gen A,’ the first A.I. native generation, BofA says

Posted by in categories: education, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI

Just as Ray Kurzweil predicted in the book The Age of Spiritual Machines.

The analysts cited Timothy Papandreou, an advisor to Alphabet’s research and development organization, X (formerly GoogleX), who explained at a recent event that A.I. will lead to a transition from a generation of programmers to a generation of “perfect prompters” as kids learn to utilize generative A.I. “assistants” throughout their lives.

Gen A won’t need programming skills to use their A.I models, instead they will work to properly prompt these systems with simple text to get the desired outcome, whether that’s finding information about Kafka for a school paper or writing an email at work.

Humans to Achieve Immortality by 2030, Google Engineer Claims

Posted by in categories: genetics, life extension, nanotechnology, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI

Immortality has been a dream of human beings since the dawn of time. Mankind´s fascination with cheating death is reflected in scientific records, mythology, and folklore dating back at least to ancient Egypt.

Now, Ray Kurzweil, a former Google engineer, claims that humans will achieve immortality by 2030 – and 86 percent of his 147 predictions have been correct.

Meet the robots attending the UN’s ‘AI for Good Global’ summit

Posted by in categories: Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI

Some of the world’s leading human and robot minds are heading to the United Nations.

At a UN summit in Geneva next week, tech luminaries ranging from futurist Ray Kurzweil to DeepMind COO Lila Ibrahim will discuss AI for good. It’s a stellar lineup of speakers, but the real stars in our eyes are the robots.

Over 50 of the beasts — the majority from Europe — will be in attendance. All of them merit places in your dreams and nightmares, but we’ve narrowed the roster down to a list of our 10 favourites.

Google Engineer Turned Futurist Predicts AI-Enabled Immortality For Humans

Posted by in categories: genetics, life extension, nanotechnology, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI

Former Google engineer and esteemed futurist Ray Kurzweil has made another bold prediction: Immortality is within reach for humans by 2030, thanks to the help of nanorobots. You read that right — humans could potentially live forever, according to Kurzweil.

Kurzweil, who has a track record of accurate predictions such as foreseeing a computer beating humans in chess by 2000, shared his prediction in a recent YouTube series by tech vlogger Adagio. The 75-year-old computer scientist believes that advancements in genetics, robotics and nanotechnology will allow tiny robots to run through veins, repairing any damage and keeping people alive indefinitely.

🧠 Aubrey de Grey: AI, in silico, LEV Foundation, Alpha Fold, Nanobots, OpenAI and Sam Altman

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, nanotechnology, Ray Kurzweil, robotics/AI, singularity

Aubrey: 50% chance to LEV in 12–15 years, and a variety of topics from Rey Kurzweil to A.I. to Singularity, and so on.

In this podcast, Aubrey de Grey discusses his work as President and CSO at Lev Foundation and co-founder at Sense Research Foundation in the field of longevity. He explains how the Foundation’s focus is to combine rejuvenation and damage repair interventions to have greater efficacy in postponing aging and saving lives. De Grey believes that within 12 to 15 years, they have a 50% chance of achieving longevity escape velocity, which is postponing aging and rejuvenating the body faster than time passes. De Grey acknowledges the limitations of traditional approaches like exercise and diet in postponing aging and feels that future breakthroughs will come from high-tech approaches like skin and cell therapies. He discusses the potential of AI and machine learning in drug discovery and the possibility of using it to accelerate scientific experimentation to optimize decisions about which experiments to do next. De Gray cautions that the quality of conclusions from AI depends on the quality and quantity of input data and that the path towards defeating aging would require a symbiotic partnership between humans and AI. Finally, he discusses his excitement about the possibilities of hardware and devices like Apple Watch and Levels in tracking blood sugar levels and their potential to prolong life.
