Digital movement in real space

“MIT’s Daniel Leithinger sits in front of a screen displaying video of a red ball on a table. Leithinger raises up his hands and a field of columns erupts from the table, forming a pixellated physical model of his hands in real time”.  (http://singularityhub.com/2014/01/23/mits-tangible-media-group-gives-digital-bits-physical-form/)

Public v Private Data 

“We are moving from an era of private data and public analyses to one of public data and private analyses. Just as we have learned to be cautious about data that are missing, we may have to be cautious about missing analyses also.

Why Google Bought Robots (AI)

“Google just bought a fearsome fleet of robots…The company confirmed a New York Times report that it has acquired Boston Dynamics, the Massachusetts-based maker of such noted mechanical beasts as BigDog, Atlas, Petman, Cheetah and Wildcat…The company’s robots are among the world’s most advanced two- and four-legged machines. Some are humanoid, while others resemble predatory animals. Most have been developed under contract with military agencies, including the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA”.

Changing nature of Work and Value; Social Implications 

The canary in the mine:

Artisans are going to have a bad time in the next few decades. They will spin their wheels trying to sell nonessential variety just out of reach of machines, that require unprofitable amounts of customer-education marketing. They will hawk under-priced artisanal coffee, food, clothing, jewelry and handbags to a shrinking class of consumers with enough discretionary income.”

Use of AI in Conflict 

‘DARPA’s Distributed Battle Management (DBM) program aims to address these challenges. The program aims to develop control algorithms and demonstrate robust decision-aid software for battle management at the tactical edge.’

Cyber Warriors – DARPA Training 

“This involves skills such as being able to reverse engineer binary, or machine-readable, files and, Ragsdale said, finding source-code-level vulnerabilities that could be exploited, and doing so with software source-level analysis and with automated tools that perform functions such as fuzzing, the informal name for automatic bug finding.

Cyber warriors also must be able to identify potentially exploitable vulnerabilities in binaries that adversaries can and often do exploit, he added. They also must understand the many ways cryptography is implemented across the infrastructure and identify the approaches adversaries may use to try to subvert crypto system security”.
