Sauver le symbole by Marc Roux

Nous pouvons nous accorder avec certains critiques du transhumanisme pour dire que la convergence NBIC met en question notre rapport au langage et aux symboles. Or, il est probable qu’ils contribuent à ce qui fait émerger l’humain. Une pensée transhumaniste peut-elle relever ce défi ? Le symbolisme s’évanouira-t-il dans nos machines computationnelles ?

Non, l’Intelligence Artificielle n’est pas « purement logique » by Alexandre Maurer

Dans les conférences et débats autour sur l’Intelligence Artificielle (IA), il y a une affirmation qui revient souvent :

« L’intelligence artificielle est fondamentalement différente de l’intelligence humaine, car elle est purement logico-mathématique, alors que l’intelligence humaine est faite d’intuition, d’imagination, etc. »

Monkeys Learn to Pass a Classic Test For Self-Awareness by George Dvorsky

The ability to look into a mirror and recognize oneself is a cognitive skill we all take for granted, but very few animals outside of humans are able to do it. New research shows that monkeys can be trained to pass the so-called “mirror test,” suggesting that more species may be self-aware than previously thought. It’s a fascinating result, but one that shows how far we are from being able to accurately gauge consciousness in another animal.

Quantum Biology – Wandering where the edge is by Brian Hanley

I have had thoughts about quantum mechanics and biology for many years - ever since my thermodynamics class in chemistry as an undergrad. I discussed and developed them over the years. When I thought it was ready, decades ago, I wrote to Linus Pauling about my speculation that the most important differentiator for life is that from the molecular scale to the organization of organs, chaos (in the mathematical chaos theory sense) is the organizing principle. This means that living organisms are all potentially sensitive to quantum events. He w...

Cognitive Easing: Human Identity Crisis in a World of Technology by Melanie Swan

Cognitive Easing is the aim of much of our endeavor, whether explicit or implicit. We have never wavered from trying to create a life of ease, enjoyment, and fulfillment. The definition of Cognitive Easing is spending less mental effort to achieve a result.
