AI Ethics Dangerous Risky Xenophobia Risk

Via Singularity Weblog an article was published (27th March 2014) explaining how AI risk analysts are the biggest risk. Note also the following two G+ posts from Singularity 2045 on the same issue. The real threat is humans versus human conflict ('Small' Nuclear War Could Trigger Catastrophic Cooling). We need superior intelligence ASAP to avert the risk of human stupidity. Some risk analysts dangerously claim robots could be evil (see the Tweets below). The risk analysts are the true evil, the true danger, a very dangerous situation indeed.

Bee Robot Molecular-Bio Revolution DNA Cages

Uploading a bee brain into a bee robot is revolutionary. This collection of G+ posts from Singularity 2045 also focuses on a molecular biology revolution. PhysOrg described how a forthcoming "...explosion of data combined with ever more powerful computers is bringing about a second revolution in molecular biology." Hacking T-Cells is mind-blowing too. We live in a marvellous world of self-assembling DNA cages.

I've not embedded news about MRI being using to visualise gene activity inside brains. I also refrained from embedding the post about E.coli being modified to withstand radiation, likewise edible electronics, but those three posts are equally important. Radical news overflows. It is difficult to distil the potency of technological news to achieve a concise summary. Hopefully via limiting the embeds to six posts, combined with the two links above, this will create powerful appraisal of technology at the end of March 2014.

The overall message of this blog entry is regarding the difference between machines and biology evaporating, evident by PhysOrg commentary ("...researchers are working to engineer biology much as they engineer high-tech machines..."), or evident via the synbio creation of living materials (E.coli re-engineered to produce " nanowires, conducting biofilms, and films studded with quantum dots, or tiny crystals that exhibit quantum mechanical properties.").

Popular Singularity 2045 Posts Up To March 2014

Here are the most popular posts on Singularity 2045, Google+, up to March 2014. In August 2012 a post was made on Singularity 2045 regarding electricity being generated from a virus, which at the time it was popular with 10 pluses and 23 shares. The following posts show the level of progress. The progress of the Singularity 2045 page is not astronomical but progress is being made. I found the most popular ones via a site called googleplussuomi. I was considering including a post about machine learning, but the top four will suffice.
