A Philosopher’s Lifelong Search for Meaning – Part 5 – Transhumanism and Meaning by John G. Messerly

16. A Fully Meaningful Cosmos

In other words, this isn’t our grandparents’ nationalism we are confronting but something quite new, and forgetting that fact leads to all kinds of intellectual mistakes, most notably imagining that the ghosts of the likes of Hitler, Tojo, and Mussolini have risen from the grave like Halloween ghouls.

The politics of crime-fighting software by Marcelo Rinesi

Call it machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, or simply computational intelligence: countries are rushing to apply new technologies to combat crimes, but how they do so — and even what counts as crime — varies among them, and says much about their societies, priorities, and future.
