The new kindergarten Australis and the pedagogy of modal constructivism. An education for the future. by Pedro Villanueva

This work and proposal emerged under my experience during five years working with children in school Reggio Emilia in Chile, as a teacher of art. My studies were not limited to teaching and experiencing the constructivist experiences with children and create art lesson plans. During this stage in the artistic teaching with young children I began to investigate the pedagogical education and how it could develop and deepen the curriculum or child pedagogy from the cultural point of view and from a contemporary perspective. After collect, study...

When Will Robots Deserve Human Rights? by George Dvorsky

Films and TV shows like Blade Runner, Humans, and Westworld, where highly advanced robots have no rights, trouble our conscience. They show us that our behaviors are not just harmful to robots—they also demean and diminish us as a species. We like to think we’re better than the characters on the screen, and that when the time comes, we’ll do the right thing, and treat our intelligent machines with a little more dignity and respect.

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

Pour en finir avec une idée fausse qui pollue les débats sur l’IA.

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. »

Cette affirmation relève d’une méconnaissance de ce qu’est l’IA aujourd’hui. Tentons d’...

Would You Feel Safer If Your Self-Driving Car Could Explain Itself? by George Dvorsky

With each passing breakthrough in artificial intelligence, we’re asking our machines to make increasingly complex and weighty decisions. Trouble is, AIs are starting to act beyond our levels of comprehension. In high frequency stock trading, for example, this had led to so-called flash crashes, in which algorithms make lightning-quick decisions for reasons we can’t quite grasp. In an effort to bridge the growing gap between man and machine, the Pentagon is launching a new program to create machines that can explain their actions in a way...

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 ?

Why we should create artificial offspring: meaning and the collective afterlife Science and Engineering Ethics

That’s the title of a new article I have coming out. It argues that the creation of artificial offspring could add meaning to our lives and that it might consequently be worth committing to the project of doing so. It’s going to be published in the journal Science and Engineering Ethics. The official version will be out in a few weeks. In the meantime, you can read the abstract below and download a pre-publication version at the links provided.

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. »

Informatica Journal - Call for Special Issue on Superintelligence Informatica Journal

Since the inception of the field of artificial intelligence, a prominent goal has been to create computer systems that would reason as capably as humans across a wide range of fields. Over the last decade, this goal has been brought closer to reality. Machine learning systems have come to excel in many signal processing tasks and have achieved superhuman performance in learning tasks including the games of Go and Heads-up Poker. More broadly, we have seen large changes in every pore of our society. This remarkable progress raises the questio...

Robot Rights: Intelligent Machines (Panel Discussion) by John Danaher

I participated in a debate/panel discussion about robot rights at the Science Gallery (Trinity, Dublin) on the 29th March 2017. A video from the event is above. Here’s the description from the organisers:

Propriété intellectuelle du vivant, brevets et longévité pour tous by Hadrian Pourbahman

Beaucoup se représentent la propriété intellectuelle sous la forme d’une taxe : taxe sur la copie privée, sur les droits d’auteur… Mais en réalité, cette notion, dont l’origine remonte au XVème siècle, s’est peu à peu immiscée dans tous les aspects de notre société, y compris lorsque que l’on raisonne en terme de droit du vivant et de longévité.
