Michael J. Coffey1,820July 2013 EngagersThank you to everyone in this circle--last month you mentioned me, commented on a post, or shared.  Well, and a couple that had posted something I thought was great.  And maybe one or two people who just +1'd something of mine.  I'm still kind of figuring out what my rules are for my engagement circle.  Anyway, this is a great group of people, with a heavy weighting toward people who talk about tea and tech/business marketing/social media (unsurprisingly, if you know me). #sharedcircles  2013-08-03 18:26:1490315CC G+

Methodology: out of 3200 people that I follow, using +Circloscope I ordered them according to relevance score (calculated by Google depending on whose posts I engage the most) and filtered for a value over 30, then filtered for whether they are active (when was their last post) and finally filtered by whether they were in my "must read" circles. Voila! I hope you find it interesting :) #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles  #circlesharing  2013-05-26 09:51:2119713412CC G+

Psst! Hey, buddy, wanna buy a town?
Actually,.... Wouldn't it be cool if a bunch of humanists bought the town and set it up as a superstition-free community?
Jeez, I really like that idea. How do we make this work?

I'm starting to get a wee bit concerned about the #Ebola outbreak.
Between the inherent and unavoidable lag in the response to the outbreak, and the increased probability of infected people getting out of Africa, it's getting really important to get out in front of this.

Taking pictures with photons that didn't bounce of the target.

Fortunately, I doubt this will scale to macroscopic objects - or at least I hope not.  Can you imagine the "fun" that spy agencies would have then?

560 million year old muscles

This is an important find: the earliest fossil to date showing signs of having muscle fibres; earlier than the Cambrian explosion.
Kind of makes sense that there'd be a bit of pump-priming, as it were, before animal life really took off.

I'm getting progressively more annoyed by clips that purport to deliver meaningful information, but that just go on forever. Why should I watch a 10 minute video when what I want to know can be transmitted in 5 sentences I could read in less than a minute? Seriously, do all these clip producers really think their oration is that good? News flash: for the most part, it ain't.

Life is too short and time is too important to waste on videos, most of the time. So, sorry all you Spielberg wannabes, I'll settle for the Cliff Notes. And ts;dw.

Another significant advance in understanding and possibly treating #autism.

Autistic Kids Have Extra Brain Synapses
Children and adolescents with autism have a surplus of synapses in the brain, and this excess is because of a slowdown in a normal brain “pruning” process during development, according to a study by neuroscientists at Columbia Univ. Medical Center (CUMC). Because synapses are the points where neurons connect and communicate with each other, the excessive synapses may have profound effects on how the brain functions. The study was published in Neuron.

A drug that restores normal synaptic pruning can improve autistic-like behaviors in mice, the researchers found, even when the drug is given after the behaviors have appeared.

THE MACHINES WILL KILL US ALL!
Oh, yeah?  How, exactly, will they do that?

I know it's the Daily Mail - the toilet paper of media outlets - but it seems that everyone is missing a very important point: just how exactly will some new AI destroy humanity?

Think about it. What exactly would have to happen for all this?

First of all, we'd need to get a real AI. That in itself is hard enough.  Say we get, as Ms. Watson claims, an AI with the intellect of a bee. Does this mean it will be able to understand social situations?  Gawd, no. Even a real bee, raised without any actual experiences, would have no clue about social bee situations, let alone human social situations.

Second, the bee AI would have to understand human social situations - which it probably couldn't do because... you know, it's a bee.  This would take time.  So, its human keepers would noticeif i... more »

Does this mean it will be able to understand social situations?  Gawd, no. Even a real bee, raised without any actual experiences, would have no clue about social bee situations, let alone human social situations.

Second, the bee AI would have to understand human social situations - which it probably couldn't do because... you know, it's a bee.  This would take time.  So, its human keepers would notice if it suddenly started making pronouncements like "What the fuck do people care about Kim Kardashian!"

Third, it would have to get access to things that it could use to kill us.  Like we're going to say: "It's as smart as a bee; let's put it in charge of our nukes!" Seems legit.  Even if we put it in charge of, say, "the grid," the most it could do is shut off power to a part of the world.  Say it hacked Twitter.  Big deal. All the cat pix would be replaced with bee pix.  Wow. Say it hacked the NSA.  Sure, it could cause some grief.  But I doubt the Australians would be put out. Or the Swiss, or the Canadians, or the Italians, or the Tongans, or the Lithuanians.... There'd be lots of people left to deal with it.

Of course, it could be more sinister.  An evil bee intellect.  It might allow itself to be copied into thousands of household appliances before launching its attack.

Cuz so many people die each year due to iRobot attacks, right?  Maybe a few house fires would be started. A judiciously placed vacuum cleaner cord might cause a few people to fall down stairs. Maybe the odd toaster in the bath.  By this point, its cover would have been blown, and there'd still be lots of humans left to smack it with a software flyswatter.

And if it did manage to gain control of our appliances, how would they all coordinate their actions, without lighting up every server from here to Timbuktu like Christmas trees?  Wouldn't anyone notice?  Yeah, actually, they would.

Fourth, let's say it's infiltrated everything and has the means to kill us all.  Then what? Who's going to fix it and its evil appliance (or driverless car) hordes when it or they break down?  Presumably there will be so many robots around that they'll be able to take up the slack. But how long will it take to make sure there are enough robots?  How will it influence us to make us want to built those robots? How many people would succumb to the rhetoric of a bee? During that period, I estimate that there will be a bazillion opportunities for us to notice that something is hinky and deal with it by using a paperclip to push that recessed hard reset button.

Finally, say that it manages all of that, and that we humans end up being so spectacularly stupid as to let it happen.  Well, if that's the case, then the better intellect will have won, and that's just evolution in action.
