    So now imagine this + BCI tech. Current non-invasive BCIs are largely based on EEG tech, but they're still pretty interesting.




    Cyberkinetic controls are the future of VR. It's also the only way I can see augmented reality taking off.

    It should be remphasized, just because you can (try to) automate anything, doesn't mean there aren't major drawbacks for doing so. It leads to its own kind of fascism, that of a technocratc body that takes away people's jobs. Underwritten is the idea that some groups of people should be treated differently, because they're different. I'm not handing my job to anybody, human or robot. If they wont hire me, I'll find a means to support myself elsewhere, without them. And I probably wont finance their lifestyle.

    Intel’s new ‘neural network on a stick’ aims to unchain A.I. from the internet

    Intel pulled the curtain back on something pretty awesome. The device, called the Neural Compute Stick 2, is essentially a trainable artificial intelligence that lives on a thumb drive. Despite its small form factor, it has some big implications for the future of computing.

    Just a few short years ago, neural networks required a lot of computing power to run — so much, in fact, that most of the computation couldn’t actually take place on your smartphone or PC. Instead, the task had to be sent to the cloud, where powerful servers could do the heavy lifting and then send the answer back to your device. In many cases, this is still how a lot of computation-heavy A.I. applications work. Take an Amazon Echo, for example. The little puck on your countertop doesn’t have the brains required to process natural language, understand the nature of your query, and spit out an answer within just a few seconds. So instead of spending multiple hours processing your question locally, it taps into the cloud to access more powerful servers, which perform the task quickly, then sends back the result to your speaker.

    It will be interesting to see what they mean: I don't necessarily associate AI with the internet.

    It's also a gamechanger (no pun intended). A more mature version of this has very wide applications in so many areas, ranging from video games and movies all the way to education and travel.
