The Perfect Human. Great #VPRO  series on scientific developments that allow us to enhance humans through science. 
This episode (mostly in English) has Aubrey de Grey (I was at the lecture where Bas Heijne recorded him, never knew he was there recording). 

What strikes me: those in favor of these developments seem to leave a lot more room for doubt, they don't claim to know what people will do with these possibilities, whereas the opponents not only claim to know, but also seem to put words in the mouths of the proponents constantly

Nice analysis: this will make #virtual   #reality  really interesting (Dutch article)
 ·  Translate
Virtual Reality komt eraan en het belooft de werkelijkheid completer dan ooit te reproduceren, te verbeteren en zelfs te vervangen. De mogelijke toepassingen zijn spectaculair. Maar in elke simulatie gaat iets verloren. Dat maakt sentimenteel, maar hopelijk ook creatief.

Artificial intelligence scientists at AI Impacts calculate how much it would cost to rent the human brain if it were a computer
In 7-14 years a 100/hour computer could have the same performance as a human brain

"We are afraid of ourselves and our own unconscious minds. When we are building something that reflects us, it's the one thing we're all afraid to face."
Good point

Finally... 
“Mid June.” That's the current target for the DROID Turbo to receive its Lollipop update, at least according to a Verizon device test engineer. The Big Red employee opened up on Google+ yesterday with an image of his own Turbo running Android 5.1, which is the version of Android expected to make ...

Well, if you don't own a #selfdriving   #car  yet, maybe you can get this #robot  to drive your car for you ;-)
VideoThe Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Genoa, Italy, have created a robot dubbed WALK-man, Whole Body Adaptive Locomotion and Manipulation, that can drive a car, open doors and use power tools. Looking more like the Terminator in an industrial exoskeleton versus the cute companion R2D2-like robots we are becoming accustomed to, WALK-Man's creators have been hard at [...]

Great cafe. They specialize in Whiskey, have a great collection of single malts. Sunday night after 10pm you can drink them at half price. Also a pretty good collection of beers. And great service

Good, if not spectacular hotel. Service was excellent, Internet connectivity in my room wasn't great though. Clean room, decent size.

Food is great, but the atmosphere is that of your average football stadium: very busy and loud

Good Mexican food. Decor is ok. In general very good service. A plus: it has a basement playroom for kids, so if you're looking for somewhere you can take them along, this is a good place

I use this pizzeria to order pizza's all the time. Usually, good to very good. The del Signore is my personal favorite. Delivery times are usually pretty fast too

Excellent dining for a very reasonable price! The food is at the level of a very good restaurant, yet you can have a 6-course meal for 32 euros. Small details separate it from a top restaurant (e.g. orange juice from a bottle instead of freshly squeezed), but I'd highly recommend it to anyone
