Mother Nature is discovering a new clay for her acts of creation. Carbon, that trusty medium for life’s evolutionary processes, is losing its monopoly as nature learns to express herself through the inorganic chemistry of technology. Machine learning is how she does it.

The new actuating material — nickel hydroxide-oxyhydroxide — can be instantly triggered and wirelessly powered by low-intensity visible light or electricity at relatively low intensity. It can exert a force of up to 3000 times its own weight — producing stress and speed comparable to mammalian skeletal muscles, according to the researchers.

Automated Picking

Now, scientists from MIT have made a new breakthrough in machine learning: their new system can not only teach itself to see and identify objects, but also understand how best to manipulate them.

Once this technology is perfected, the implications for employment at Amazon fulfillment centers could be devastating.

Courage to be, vital self affirmation, the bridge between reason and desire, and the unreflective striving toward what is noble -- all definitions of "Thymos," the Greek word for Soul:

Some of Google's mobile-first designs have been winners and some not. Inbox is now one of the non-winners.

Arguably, the mobile-first feature downsizing we experienced here on Google+ really took the wind out of the sails, helping to prevent its entry into the winner circle.

The 4 stages of AI:
1) Internet AI
2) Business AI
3) Perception AI
4) Autonomous AI

Interesting look at the competition between the US and China in each stage.

Here is the full speech by Barack Obama today. His message: vote.

But the way he says it is worth watching. I sure miss this man.

Actual start of speech:

Amazing new imaging technology using red light. This could change a lot of how we understand our bodies. Wow.

"Ultrafast Extreme Events" in Financial Markets: A Whole New World

Society's techno-social systems are becoming ever faster and more computer-orientated. However, far from simply generating faster versions of existing behaviour, we show that this speed-up can generate a new behavioural regime as humans lose the ability to intervene in real time. Analyzing millisecond-scale data for the world's largest and most powerful techno-social system, the global financial market, we uncover an abrupt transition to a new all-machine phase characterized by large numbers of subsecond extreme events. The proliferation of these subsecond events shows an intriguing correlation with the onset of the system-wide financial collapse in 2008. Our findings are consistent with an emerging ecology of competitive machines featuring ‘crowds’ of predatory algorithms, and highlight the need for a new scientific theory of subsecond financial phenomena.

But the question is what is the effect of billions of such algorithms working together at the macro level? You can’t predict the learned behavior at the level of the population from microscopic rules.
