    Default Aye, robot? Amazingly lifelike humanoid another Star Trek concept well on the way IS DATA Sentient ?

    DATA was a concept that in the future AI's would be created and over the course of
    the TV series many moral questions were asked of it and its evolution into a sentient
    being which in the end DATA was classed as a new sentient life form. Obviously
    DATA was played excellently by a human actor Brent Spiner. There have been
    many movies on the subject from Blade Runner to the recent movie Chappie with
    lots of good , bad and scary ones in between. But as with a lot of other Science /
    Scy -fy concepts robotics and AI's have come a long way and it is only a matter of
    time.before they are sentient .

    ‘With his lively eyebrows, winkled cheeks and eyes that follow you around the room –
    this state-of-the-art robotic head is menacingly lifelike.The humanoid, known as
    Ham, has been drawing in crowds with his incredible range of facial expressions at
    an electronics event in Hong Kong this week.The head, designed by American
    robotics designer David Hanson, is able to answer basic questions and can also be
    used in the simulation of medical scenarios.’



    Incredibly lifelike: Known as Ham, this humanoid is made using specialised
    software and can recognise and respond to facial expressions

    Ham is currently on exhibit at the Global Sources spring electronics show at
    AsiaWorld Expo - the largest event of its kind in the world, with more than 4,000
    booths displaying the latest gadgets.

    The head is created with malleable material called Frubber using soft-bodied
    mechanical engineering and nanotechnology.It contains realistic pores that
    measure just 4 to 40 nanometers across (there are 10million nanometers in one
    centimetre).


    Using specialised software the machine can recognise and respond to a number of
    human facial expressions in a natural way.

    According to Hanson Robotics's website, the humanoids can actually see your face,
    make eye contact with you, and understand speech to 'engage you in witty dialogue'.

    Such reactions are a major feat of engineering, according to chief designer David
    Hanson, the founder and and president of Hanson Robotics.

    Reactive: The robot smiles using multiple motors - which whir into action and
    subtly adjust multiple points of articulation around his mouth and brown eyes

    State-of-the-art: The head is created with malleable material using soft-bodied
    mechanical engineering and nanotechnology. It contains realistic pores that
    measure just 4 to 40 nanometers across (there are 10million nanometers in one centimetre)

    It is not the first human-looking robot that his firm has created either. An earlier
    version of Ham drew headlines as it was sculpted to look like Albert Einstein,
    complete with a bushy moustache and a shock of white hair.

    The Einstein humanoid made facial expressions by using multiple motors - which
    whirl into action and subtly adjust multiple points of articulation around his mouth
    and brown eyes. Mr Hanson sees robotics as his calling and works on many fronts,
    from sculpting features to developing artificial intelligence.

    To advance to the next step of producing robots for everyday applications in
    entertainment, health care and education, he decided to move to Hong Kong with
    his family - his wife Amanda and their son Zeno.The city has a booming robotics
    community with a high amount of expertise and design infrastructure and new
    technology can be developed at a lower cost than in the US.

    Thanks for putting this AI info together. When I watched the last video of "Jules", I was surprised at the emotions that came up. Much like the people that were interacting with him seemed to, I felt the sort of warm, protective, affection that I feel when looking at a small child or animal. He seemed to emit the same innocence and purity that children and animals do.

    DARPA Wants to Make a Computer Program that Evolves for 100 Years

    Sunday 12th April 2015 at 09:12 By David Icke





    ‘The most fearsome specter brandished by the “artificial intelligence will ​enslave us all”
    crowd is the computer program that can adapt. Not only would such software’s core
    function evolve and change, but it could survive both new and crumbling physical infrastructure.

    This week, the Defense Advanced Research Agency (DARPA) published a request for
    proposals on how to design software than can do exactly this. Not just for 10 or 20
    years, when much of today’s technology will surely be obsolete, but for a century.
    The program is known as BRASS—Building Resource Adaptive Software Systems.

    When Florida is underwater and California is a desert dystopia, BRASS programs will
    live on. When the personal computer and the smartphone are distant, archaic memories;
    when our bodies interface with machines; when our thoughts become data inputs;
    BRASS programs will adapt with us.’

    Paypal Head Wants Brain Chips to Replace Passwords

    New technology will have to fit inside ‘cultural norms’ to be accepted

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Prison Planet.com
    April 20, 2015



    ‘Paypal’s ‘Global Head of Developer Evangelism’ Jonathan LeBlanc is
    pushing implantable brain chips as a replacement for passwords, but
    insists that such technology must be made to fit inside “cultural norms”
    before it is accepted by the general public.




    In a presentation called ‘Kill All Passwords’, LeBlanc admits that the future
    of authentication security is “going to get creepy” as traditional passwords
    are phased out due to their innumerable security flaws.

    LeBlanc envisages using brain chips to measure thought patterns so that
    childhood memories could be invoked by the user to unlock their computer.’

    LeBlanc also discusses how bio-hacking companies are already using embedded
    NFC and RFID tags to unlock doors. In January, the BBC reported on a company
    in Sweden that was implanting its workers with computer chips under the skin in
    order for them to access the building.

    “Daily ID chips” with wi-fi sensors could also be swallowed by employees to
    provide secure authentication, says LeBlanc.

    Paypal is currently working with partners to get the ball rolling on such technology,
    a process LeBlanc says is part of the payment processor becoming a “thought leader”
    on the transition.

    “I can’t speculate as to what PayPal will do in the future, but we’re looking at new
    techniques – we do have fingerprint scanning that is being worked on right now – so
    we’re definitely looking at the identity field,” LeBlanc told the Wall Street Journal.

    “Realistically the ones that will succeed, whether it’s embeddable, ingestible, injectible
    or what have you, are the ones that are going to play into cultural norms, the ones that
    are going to meet the demands of the populace overall….and not be creepy, so even
    though they seem creepy at the current time, the future are gonna be the ones that hit
    those cultural norms,” said LeBlanc.

    LeBlanc’s identification of “cultural norms” as a major hurdle to be overcome before the
    public becomes comfortable with wearable ID technology or implantable chips echoes
    similar sentiments made by Google executive Regina Dugan.

    During a 2013 D11 conference, Dugan said that Google was working on an ingestible
    microchip that would turn a user’s entire body into a biological authentication system for
    cellphones, cars, doors and other devices. The company is also developing a wearable
    e-tattoo that can decipher a user’s thoughts by detecting the unvocalized words in their throat.

    Dugan predicted that young people would want to adopt the e-tattoo if it was made to
    look cool and was seen as a form of rebellion against their parents.

    Dugan’s role in developing such technology can be placed in a somewhat sinister context
    given that she is the former director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
    (DARPA), an agency of the US Department of Defense, which many see as a pioneer of a
    dystopian big brother surveillance society.

    Google CEO Eric Schmidt even suggested earlier this year that the Internet itself could one
    day disappear as an external concept, greasing the skids for the world wide web to exist
    inside people’s brains. In December 2013, Google engineering director Scott Huffman also
    predicted that within five years web users would have microphones attached to their ceilings
    and microchips embedded in their brains in order to perform quicker internet searches.

    Would you swallow an identification pill or have one embedded in your brain for greater
    password security and convenience? How could such technology be abused by governments
    and corporations? Let us know in the comments below.
