Harvard psychologists conducted a study recently, which found that not only are humans remembering less and relying on the Internet more, but we’re considering the Internet as an extension of our own intelligence instead of as a separate tool.

Blueprint for an artificial brain

from RoboDaily by Staff Writers
Bielefeld, Germany (SPX) Mar 04, 2013

Scientists have long been dreaming about building a computer that would work like a brain. This is because a brain is far more energy-saving than a computer, it can learn by itself, and it doesn’t need any programming. Privatdozent [senior lecturer] Dr. Andy Thomas from Bielefeld University’s Faculty of Physics is experimenting with memristors – electronic microcomponents that imitate natural nerves.

Thomas and his colleagues proved that they could do this a year ago. They constructed a memristor that is capable of learning. Andy Thomas is now using his memristors as key components in a blueprint for an artificial brain. He will be presenting his results at the beginning of March in the print edition of the prestigious Journal of Physics published by the Institute of Physics in London. . . . Read Complete Report

 

Google’s Robot Cars Go to California Governor for Approval

from NBC San Diago

California’s legislators have approved Google’s robot cars on public roads Wednesday and now the governor can decides the bill’s fate.

If the bill is signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, it would greatly change how cars would be made and driven — namely by computers, according to the San Jose Mercury News. About 99 percent of all traffic and fatal collisions are caused by human error, so robots might be a safer bet. Read Complete Report

If You See This Google Warning, Act Fast: Big Brother is Watching

from Mercola

August 05 2012

By Dr. Mercola

Big Brother is watching. No kidding. And the warning is coming from none other than Google, which says government spies may be spying on you. Some believe the Google announcement may be related  to the recent discovery of the data-mining virus named “Flame.” In a June 3 New York Times article, Andrew Kramer and Nicole Perlroth write.

“When Eugene Kaspersky, the founder of Europe’s largest antivirus company, discovered the Flame virus that is afflicting computers in Iran and the Middle East, he recognized it as a technologically sophisticated virus that only a government could create. . . . Read Complete Report

PUBLIC SERVICE POST: How to remove your Google Web Data History

from yahoonews.com

 

Do you know if Google is tracking your Web activity? If you have a Google account (for, say, Gmail) and have not specifically located and paused the Web History setting, then the search giant is keeping track of your searches and the sites you visited. This data has been separated from other Google products, but on March 1 it will be shared across all of the Google products you use when Google’s new privacy policy goes into effect.

If you’d like to prevent Google from combining this potentially sensitive data with the information it has collected from your YouTube, Google+, and other Google accounts, you can remove your Web History and stop it from being recorded moving forward. . . Here’s how

SOPA 101: Your guide to the Internet blackout

January 18th, 2012

You probably woke up this morning to realize the Internet is totally screwy.

Is it the online apocalypse? Not so much. Google, Wikipedia, Boing Boing and others have gone dark, along with thousands of others, who are protesting two anti-piracy bills that are up for debate in the U.S. Congress.

It’s a debate that’s pitted the Web against Washington. And if the goal of these protests was to get people talking, that sure seems to have worked, with every media organization on the planet talking about piracy today.

Many of these sites are using creative techniques to bring attention to the two bills – one called SOPA, the other PIPA – and making very clear their viewpoint on it.

Before you panic, read our quick-and-dirty guide to these online protests.

So, what are these piracy bills about? . . . continue report

SOPA Sponsor Calls Protests a ‘Publicity Stunt” as Google Joins in

Google on Tuesday confirmed that it too will join Wednesday’s SOPA/PIPA protest. But before you freak out about the possibility of being without Gmail, Google Search, Maps, or Google+ for a day, know that the search giant is not shutting down its services tomorrow, only raising awareness.

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), meanwhile, does not appear to be going anywhere, with bill sponsor Rep. Lamar announcing today that a markup of the bill will commence in February—while also slamming the protests as a publicity stunt.

Until then, Google plans to make its opposition known.

“Like many businesses, entrepreneurs and web users, we oppose these bills because there are smart, targeted ways to shut down foreign rogue websites without asking American companies to censor the Internet,” Google said in a statement. “So tomorrow we will be joining many other tech companies to highlight this issue on our U.S. home page.” . . . complete report
