Our logic reflects the architecture of our brains. For example: if a then b, if b then c, therefore if a then c. That makes sense to us because of the structure of our neural network. If our network were built differently then our logic would be different, just like a lot of euclidean geometry doesn't work in a curved world. Wouldn't it be a good idea then to develop artificial brains with a different architecture? In a way, that is what big data intelligence achieves: insights not provided by a few stimuli, but by statistical inferences from millions of data points.

+Andrea Casalotti I think the only answer possible to your question is that we don't know.

However, there is one example of something different that I can think of. The octopus has some degree of intelligence in its arms: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2001/09/0907_octoarm.html

It's a different way of organising things. Still heirarchical, but differently so. The divide between the two halfs of our own brain is also interesting.

The monster we have created and the allure it has to many Muslims around the world.
The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it.

In the nearly 40 years since the TSCA 74’s passage in the USA, more than 20,000 new chemicals have entered the market. “Only five have been removed,” Landrigan says. He notes that the CDC has picked up measurable levels of hundreds of these chemicals in the blood and urine of “virtually all Americans.” Yet, unlike food and drugs, they enter commerce largely untested.

Can't resist a good bit of Apple bashing:
When I look at the Apple Watch, I’m not seeing an empathetic creation for the masses. I’m seeing what the New Yorker’s more than 16,000-word story on Jonathan Ive would only hint at—that Apple may have built out the watch to satisfy the urges of a designer who has become more obsessed with Bentleys and Rolexes than making attractive, functional technology that will actually make life better for the 99%.
A health monitor with a battery life of few hours (meaning that for many hours it can't record, because it is charging). What?
I'm just saying what a lot of people are thinking.

They will soon be programmed to learn how to kick back.
And what else will they  learn?
The scary thing is that +Demis Hassabis will not disclose who is on Google's Ethics Committee.

Studies show inconsistent coverage of violent global and regional conflicts. When Christians, Jews and other non-Muslims are killed by Muslims, Islam is identified as playing a direct role. When Muslims are killed by Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims, however, the religious identity of the violent perpetrators is downplayed or ignored.
The religious identity of violent perpetrators is only highlighted when they're Muslim.

20 years ago there were 20 million people on the Internet.
Google was just an idea in a couple of graduates' minds.
