The Intellectual vs. The Engineer: Ray Kurzweil Puts Paul Allen's Cake Out in the Rain

Paul Allen knows business & marketing, but when it comes to all things Singularity, he’s an armchair intellectual who hasn’t actually done anything of note in the field. Kurzweil was making computers compose original music in 1965. Oh snap?

My Logic is Better than Paul Allen's:  ¡Singularity Improbable! - Part 2!

Perhaps unconsciously, Allen is asserting the primacy of human intelligence in our known universe – a cognitive barrier beyond which nothing can pass – because evolution made it… or something. Paul, an AI doesn’t have to be smart LIKE us, just as smart AS us. Namsayen?

REMINDER:  Everything, Everything, Everything is Technology.  Here's Some of the Oldest Yet.

Those rocks up top there, yeah – 1.76 million years old, yo. We have found the oldest examples yet of pre-human Homo erectus tool use. That’s some vintage tech. Doing This: As my 6 loyal readers know well, the purpose of is to share the idea that literally absolutely totally completely everything around us is a representation of our technology. It is primal, it is innate, and it is a singular trait of our species. Our technology precedes all else defined as “human.” Love, organized religion, high school, gay pride parades, NASCAR, and coffee – none of it is possible without [read full post]

Can a computer be as intelligent as a human? Or, Asking the Wrong Dumb Question. Get it?

Can a computer be intelligent like a human? We already accept the existence of other animal intelligences, as long as they’re not as intelligent as us. That is a heartbreaking notion of staggeringly arrogant species-level narcissism.

Technology Dilates Time ∴ Remixed Anthrobotic Classic Compensates for Weeklong Hiatus!

As the writing staff here (which is, you know, me) have been stuck in a southern Japanese forest for the past four days, not much new has happened at  But we’re back in the stream now, and will put forth on Monday.  Until then, have a look at a slightly remixed/remastered version of the site’s most popular post ever: Technology Created Organized Religion. Next Project: Cults For & Against the Singularity. (Now with snarky topical headings to ease the pain of the article’s length!) Futurism, Techno-Sociology, Technological Anthropology, Sociotechnological Studies, Anthrobotic Sociology – or just, you know, generic human [read full post]

One Flies Like a Bird, Another Teaches Itself:  Giving Fire to Our Proto-Descendants

Above, dude with a Terminator accent and his team at the Bionic Learning Network (how perfect is that?) built an ultralight robotic bird – it flies at a similar weight and with many of the movement and aerodynamic faculties of a seagull.  His team let it fly around in a TED (VIDEO) presentation hall – which was pretty awesome.  DARPA will certainly come calling soon… [VIA SINGULARITY HUB] Below,  Tokyo Institute of Technology’s SOINN (Self-Organizing Incremental Neural Network) robot is all kinds of learning how to serve stuff to humans (we appreciate the classy coasters).  It’s, you know, incremental – [read full post]

Proactive Evolution and Transhumanism According to the Economist

“…Lately we have begun to consider the possibility that technology might change us more in a generation or two than evolution has done over millions of years.” The always excellent Economist takes on the issue of transhumanism and the Singularity in a thoughtful and well-rounded piece. I’m hard-pressed to find anything to make fun of here, even coming up with some snarky or cheeky comment is proving kinda difficult. So, just have a read! [VIA THE ECONOMIST]
