Is there an equation for intelligence? Yes. It’s F = T ∇ Sτ. In a fascinating and informative talk, physicist and computer scientist Alex Wissner-Gross explains what in the world that means. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

The hosts of Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update had a field day with Ben Carson, hilariously roasting the Republican presidential wannabe relentlessly for his remarks about homosexuality.

Harvard geneticists have created an E. coli bacterium that requires an additional amino acid, one made in the lab and not found in nature, by rewriting the bacteria's genetic language to add a "word" that calls for this unnatural amino acid.  That means they can't easily swap genes, which bacteria often do to pick up or get rid of traits. And it also means that these modified E. coli must be fed the synthetic amino acid to survive.

I have spent 20 years talking about the need for measures like this, as we embark on three dangerous-but-productive fields… synthetic biology, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence.  In all three realms, this kind of simple precaution may help someday to stave off a disaster.

Indeed, I believe there should be legislation subsidizing the development to  such man-made “bottleneck ingredients” and requiring their use in exchange for federal grants. Nanotech that needs a particular, right-handed protein, can be just as profitable — the protein could be supplied by a variety of profitable factories — but it can be stopped from spreading by simply stopping shipments, if things go badly.

Evolution can be expected!  So these precautions should be layered, several-deep.

By making E. coli dependent on an artificial amino acid, scientists hope to show that engineered organisms can be safer and more useful for industrial processes like drug production.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
This week my video of the week is not a famous classical guitarist- but a famous piece played in a crazy way, Beethoven's Für Elise on 5 guitars ... but we wait long for the fifth guitar :-))
Enjoy! #gitarra #votw
