"Unlike the cinematic version, the hulking Atlas robot is designed not as a warrior but as a humanitarian machine that would rescue victims in the rubble of a natural disaster."
US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel got a first-hand look at a life-size robot that resembles Hollywood's 'Terminator,' the latest experiment by the Pentagon's hi-tech researchers.

"Our findings identify a novel class of pharmacologic agents that are designed to treat neurologic disease by targeting a defect in cell biology, rather than a defect in molecular biology."

At least this article is not readily assuming that superintelligent machines will automatically want to control and destroy humanity, but it still posits that intelligence - which of course is well represented by superintelligence - needs to be "controlled".  Why should intelligence - machine or human - be controlled? Let's use intelligence - machine or human or preferably both cooperatively - to control the usual suspects and viruses, as intelligence always does. Just my opinion - yours always welcome.

Excerpt from "The Zero Marginal Cost Society" by Jeremy Rifkin

I haven't read the book yet, but have high hopes that it might provide a credible missing link between the replacement of all human work by robots and a world society of permanent abundance.

Anyone read it?

That kind of prediction has been around long enough that our online access should be free now.  

Is It?

The 'Attention Economy' is a factor in why we do some work for free.  

The premium currently being paid to 'Leaders' ( and the general consternation resulting)  is an indication that some other  factor is being denied .  I can't think of what that is.

Regenerative Medicine  - 
 
"Gluing a film to stop leakage" is only one example of the possibilities opened up by adhesion brought by nanoparticles. In an entirely different field, the researchers have succeeded in using nanoparticles to attach a biodegradable membrane used for cardiac cell therapy, and to achieve this despite the substantial mechanical constraints due to its beating. They thus showed that it would be possible to attach various medical devices to organs and tissues for therapeutic, repair or mechanical strengthening purposes.

With this discovery, the research team intends to further their research by investigating the mechanisms of how the APP regulates microRNA-574-5p in association with the impairment of newborn neurons as seen in Alzheimer's disease. Eventually, they hope to develop the microRNA into a biomarker for the disease. And it does not just stop there – the finding also boosts the team's work on other neurodevelopmental conditions and brain disorders.
A research team led by the National Neuroscience Institute (NNI) has uncovered a novel function of the Amyloid Precursor Protein (APP), one of the main pathogenic culprits of Alzheimer's disease. This discovery may help researchers understand how the protein goes awry in the brains of Alzheimer's disease ...

The dawn of Strong AI?

"Qualcomm already has a suite of software tools that can teach computers good and bad behavior without explicit programming."
(Phys.org) —This month, chipmaker Qualcomm opened up about its progress and goals in work on a brain-inspired chip architecture. The results are impressive. Computers that can mimic the human brain pose a challenge that attracts many computer scientists. While some people take comfort in the difference ...
