I'm an experienced entrepreneur, biophysicist, supporting multiple start-ups & boards, including Genetics Advisory Council of Harvard Medical School & a Trustee at Santa Fe Institute and an associate founder Trustee at Singularity University. I'm the inventor of twisted pair computer networking patented 1985, I commercialized the first internet sound for Apple & Windows in 1986 and then the first sound used over internet (ARPANET) in 1987 MP1&2. Later I was issued the "telephone controlled entertainment" patent.
I helped found and grow Singularity University at NASA Ames: Here's recent piece on Singularity University by Bloomberg (video 5min) http://youtu.be/HCKpl_T5r_I Here's some thoughts on life before earth (at SU 2015) https://youtu.be/skEfJ0-jv9o Here's a "singularities" presentation by Reese Jones 2012 (video 44min) https://vimeo.com/45676599 I cofounded a pair of synthetic biology start-up companies working on "Democratizing Creation" (Cambrian Genomics CGI & Genome Compiler Corp GCC) http://youtu.be/BLhU1RGTHN4 Here's a building Singularity University article by Wired UK http://www.wired.co.uk/magazine/archive/2013/05/singularity-university/on-the-exponential-curve
I'm learning YouTube as a channel ReeseJones1 at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL99645E7D2FFDB759 included are my 2012 TEDx talk "antibiotics making us fat?" at TEDxSF 7 Billion Well.
1) Transportation of matter
2) Read/write virtual printing of matter
3) Read/write synthetic biology building living things
4) Theory into 4 real companies in 4 years
Here's a thought: Perhaps internet is conscious already -- but we're unconscious about that: more on Transcension Hypothesis http://youtu.be/nQOyJUDTKdM also I consider Phones = synapses > computers for internet life (biochemical + electronic)
More thoughts: Phones + Singularity: There's about 4 billion phones with 7 billion population using them for voice calls, text message, camera, social & entertainment (but only 1 billion of these phone people earn over $1,000 US dollar/month) for shopping & stories, including books, movies, magazines, music, spoken word, twitter and newspapers that are being both written and "read" on Phones. Your phone becomes your ID, key, memory, wallet, entertainment, tricorder, connection to health & others. Phones & internet become a nervous system for our species including sensors, memory, immune system, ethics & simulation (forecast & intuition). Phones are also synapses to exponentially emerging internet of "living things" that enhance our ability to address global problems like never before
Consciousness Evolving: Richard Dawkins explains how human beings are waves http://youtu.be/kYoJLmuzwHI then what is memory & consciousness; to extrapolate: Synthetic Theology
Global perspective: evolution of bio/machines & human genes, memes, bemes into expanding consciousness http://www.illuzia.net/en/videos/clips/embryo Earth life activity viewed over time: http://youtu.be/DiI7vMbSpn8 from global observation perspective or view semantic/linguistic internet http://vimeo.com/11529540
Global perspective electronic infrastructure via planetary skin institute http://youtu.be/K3K990kVLS0 monitoring trillions of mechanical (& living) things & sensors http://vimeo.com/7395079 an internet of things from millions of objects via near earth orbit http://youtu.be/ydbbd-4oEds
Inter-Planetary perspective Moon Express venture, like FedEx for moon deliveries, robotic mining & other apps http://moonexpress.com infrastructure construction delivered by http://SpaceX.com Earth time as viewed from the ISS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJIIYzi0zow
"humans evolve from one planet to two, like species evolved from water to land" - Elon Musk). Global infrastructure 2011 SU company http://matternet.net is building an internetwork of autonomously "routed matter packages" analogous to internet "routed data packets". Matter or biology can be transported physically of sent at speed of light as information then printed into physical matter including living biology at destinations (like mars)
Cosmology perspective on black hole as physics example of singularities http://youtu.be/eI9CvipHl_c as used in gravitational cosmology. The universe may be infinite http://youtu.be/oAVjF_7ensg or possibly a multiverse.Thought on books: History of 500 years of portable text language becoming electronic, via internet & phone text messaging of course. Even the The New Yorker, a classic icon of abstract text literary prose (on paper, subscription & ad monetized), but June 2009 print edition cover art was created on a Phone (not with a camera, but finger painted onto a phone, a change away from paper for photos & text) http://www.newyorker.com/video?videoID=24059201001 and by 2010 The New Yorker introduced iPad distribution http://youtu.be/rKr-E7J-6pQ , Synchronous "broadcast TV" is becoming asynchronous internet video browsing via iTunes, Amazon, Facebook, Wikipedia, YouTube, G+ & Google TV http://youtu.be/yRsMszkMxG0
"book": was an artifact, broadly distributed, after cave painting's went mobile onto clay tablets, and then lighter longer paper scripture scrolls, similar but "the book" was cut up into "pages" of limited size and bound into shapes to fit inside saddle "bags" strapped to horse or human children (used for "book information transport", for a 400 year period of time). "Books" were used during the time before internet became mobile. Some early internet services reference "books", like ebook or facebook in names but are no longer physically constrained & bound.
In the early 21st century, except for few "pack rat" people & museums keep books -- often found near LPs, CDs, Tapes, Floppies, DVDs, thumb drives, news "papers", white papers, magazines, brochures, maps, receipts, yellow pages (one of the last to go) and other information storage technology "artifacts" typically stored in stacks or on something called "book shelves", a common furniture of the past century, these book shelves added a 3rd dimension to walled information (holding these hand portable information packages)… commonly used before information could multi-dimensionally animate, be searched, & be interactive...

We all got really excited a few weeks ago when researchers announced they’d removed HIV from human immune cells using new gene-editing technology called CRISPR/Cas-9, or ‘CRISPR’ for short, which works like a pair of molecular scissors to cut and paste DNA.
As far as we know, that specific result is holding up just fine, but a separate study has now revealed that, worryingly, HIV can evolve to survive CRISPR attacks in just two weeks. Even worse, the attack itself could actually be introducing mutations that make the virus stronger. So… bad news, damn it!

This is huge news, for at least a few reasons:
1. Machine learning is going to have a massive impact on the world. We've already seen that in areas from voice recognition to image understanding to language translation. In many ways, applying machine learning to problems unlocks all kinds of new opportunities. Tons of niches would support specialized startups applying machine learning to specific domains.
2. In the past, Google has released papers like MapReduce, which described a system for massive parallel processing of data. MapReduce spawned entire cottage industries such as Hadoop as smart folks outside Google wrote code to recreate Google's paper. But the results still suffered from a telephone-like effect as outside code ran into issues that may have already been resolved within Google. Now Google is releasing its own code. This offers a massive set of possibilities, without reinventing the wheel.
3. In many ways, machine learning has been an example of "secret sauce." I'm incredibly excited that Google is releasing technology so that the entire world can benefit, not just Google. It's the kind of decision that makes me proud of Google and its people.
Smart people and smart companies often succeed by noticing when something has changed in the world, because change unlocks new opportunities. Well, something has changed. If you're still in school, starting out, or working at a smart company, please think hard about how you could make the world better by applying machine learning to an important issue or a problem that you know well. With TensorFlow now open source, you have a great new tool at your disposal.
