"The result is mesmerizing—like a campy sci-fi soundtrack about robots or an alien invasion. Martin describes it as a distinctly 'non-human aesthetic taste.'"
Hear what happens when you hook up slime mold to sensors and algorithms and translate its electrical impulses into light and sound.

Cheaper genetic testing and editing tools are really messing with the health insurance industry. How much should we be regulating these things?

And who will prevent those microwaves from being aimed at satellites?

“It’s amazing, but also scary that we can use live animals mechanistically as computer chips.”
Scientists recently connected animal brains into an organic computer. This “Brainet" could perform basic computational tasks better than each animal alone.

Considering Moore's Law, how much more will neural networks be able to learn in the next few years?
Recently, Google’s DeepMind—an artificial intelligence firm acquired for over $400 million in 2013—has been widely featured for demonstrations of an algorithm that teaches itself to play video games. In a paper, the... read more

2D planar dennard scaling aka Moore's law is over in terms of cost and power reduction and will be over from a geometric point of view in the next 10 years so relying on hardware will get us nowhere. For that reason NEAT and biologically inspired neural networks offer a path to computational efficiency

We actually have an abundance of water. We just need the technology to tap into it.
Have an idea about how to use technology to tackle California’s drought? Applications are open for the 2015 Singularity University Global Impact Challenge.

Peter Diamandis discusses how your own stem cells might be the key to a very, very long life.
This post is about how stem cells are going to change medicine forever, extend life, and potentially save your life in the years ahead.

"Starting with skin cells from patient biopsies, scientists transformed them back into stem cells, and from those grew pea-sized, self-organizing, crazy-looking nuggets of living — yes, LIVING — brain."
First came lab-grown mini-hearts, then 3D printed skin. Now scientists have taken “body on a chip” to a whole new level with tiny lab-grown human brains.

We don't totally understand how fish swarm, birds flock, and simple cells coordinate activity, but dumb, tiny robots are helping us figure it out.
Hero worship is deeply engrained in the human psyche. From King Arthur to Luke Skywalker, we long for an unlikely leader to arise, pull sword from stone (or ignite lightsaber),... read more

Science. Technology. The Future of Mankind.
Introduction

Singularity Hub is the independent blog and news network for Singularity University, covering daily advances mankind is making in nanotechnology, genetics, biology, artificial intelligence, aging, robotics, and various other fields as we work our way towards the singularity. 

The singularity is the point in mankind’s future when we will transcend current intellectual and biological limitations and initiate an intelligence and information explosion beyond imagining. 

The impossible is becoming possible. The future that you thought would not come in your lifetime is coming. Singularity Hub is here to tell you about it.
