Weaponizing Hyper-Intelligence?

8/7/2018
More
Really? Are we actually considering arming hyper-intelligent systems? The question should be, how do we stop the development of strong artificial intelligence from becoming weaponized? Not all AI's are alike. Todays AI's like SIRI, Alexa, Google, and Cortana are essentially wave 2 AI's, our digital assistants. Wave 3 AI's are expected to be a much higher level of intelligence than our own. Let's weaponize them, NOT!

Why 5G?

4/21/2018
More
Why we need 5G First of all, what is 5G. 5G is the next generation of mobile network that is faster and more reliable. How fast? We don’t know exactly yet, but expect to be over a 1GBps. Most people are saying 10Gb/s. Some people say that it may be able to handle 800Gb/s. Compared to today’s 4G LTE at 50Mbps its several orders of magnitude faster. This isn’t something far into the future either. Development is happening now, and is expected to launch wider in 2020, 2 years from now. The...

New Way to Discover Alien Worlds

1/7/2018
More
The $600 million Kepler space observatory was launched March 7, 2009 to find Earth sized planets orbiting stars, known as exoplanets. It has been surveying a part of our Milky Way galaxy for planets in or near the habitable zone, where water could exist in liquid form, and be able to support life. Now, a new way to find previously hidden alien worlds using it's data has been found.

Yes, it's been confirmed, China has partnered with Europe to build a village on the Moon. The European Space Agency (ESA) and and the China National Space Administration (CNSA) are talking about collaborating on a very ambitious project. And, unlike the International Space Station, the ISS, they plan to open up the Moon Village to the whole world. China was barred from going to the ISS from US concerns over China's possible military application of its space program thanks to an act of...

Titan, Sandcastle Capital of the Solar System

3/28/2017
More
There are a number of reasons to create a human outpost on Titan instead of Mars. For one, Mars is a very inhospitable lifeless place, 1% Earth's atmosphere, and few resources. Although it once had more water than the Arctic ocean, it's lost 87% into space. Going there would be like going to a freezing desert with no air. On Titan however, there is an atmosphere, and hydrocarbons everywhere. Liquid Methane lakes could be used to fuel anything we bring or build there. It' the only place in...

The Australian National University (ANU) is looking for people to help find the elusive planet 9. Although there was a ninth planet discovered in 1930, it has been since then demoted to a dwarf planet. This new hypothetical planet 9 could be a Super Earth, about ten times more massive. It would be somewhere between two to four time the diameter of the Earth.

Pluto was discovered in 1930 by American astronomer Clyde Tombaugh. It was considered the ninth planet from the Sun. In 1992 however, this became a question after several other objects similar in size to Pluto were discovered beyond it's orbit in what's known as the Kuiper belt. The International Astronomical Union, the internationally recognized authority for assigning designations to celestial bodies made the controversial call, and destroying Pluto as a planet.
