Faut-il garantir un niveau de vie minimal ? Automatisation, intelligence artificielle… by Alexandre Maurer

Citizenship as Fob Key by Rick Searle

One of the key conceptual difficulties faced by those grappling with the resurgence of nationalism today is to hold fast to the recognition that this return of the nation state occurs in an already globalized world. 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.

Les machines nous dépassent… et alors ? by EMG

Dans son récent livre La Guerre des Intelligences, Laurent Alexandre (fondateur de Doctissimo) tente d’alerter le monde politique français sur les conséquences sociétales et économiques du développement actuel et à venir des programmes informatiques intelligents. Son analyse concernant l’imminence du “rouleau compresseur” de l’IA est étayée et sérieuse. On ne compte plus, aujourd’hui, les personnalités… [lire la suite]

Three Anthopocenes by Rick Searle

A few weeks back I read an interesting essay by Jedediah Purdy on Aeon written in the halcyon days of 2015. An article which, given the news, captured something essential and got me a little depressed. Within the space of the last three weeks hurricanes of almost unprecedented magnitude slammed into Houston, then, Florida, then Puerto Rico.

You are still a member of a spectacular, scientific civilization. The War on Science (and all other fact-using professions) will not succeed if we keep our spirits up. So let’s roll up our sleeves and dive into some amazing stuff.
