Légalité et longévité. La mort de la mort. Mars 2017. N° 96. - Transhumanisme : Association Française Transhumaniste. Le dernier état de l’utopie, aujourd’hui, à vivre encore, c’est l’utopie de guérison: pouvoir se prémunir des maladies par la génétique.

Légalité et longévité. La mort de la mort. Mars 2017. N° 96. - Transhumanisme : Association Française Transhumaniste

C’est le noyau dur du méliorisme classique des Lumières et il sera difficile d’y porter atteinte. Le pire des pessimismes ne peut pas décourager cet espoir. Cela n’a pas nécessairement à voir avec les rêves d’immortalité qui sont typiques de la côte Ouest des Etats-Unis… Il ne faut pas nécessairement « californiser » notre pensée pour pouvoir espérer améliorer la condition humaine d’un point de vue médical ! Peter Sloterdijk, dans Le Temps, 5 novembre 2016. Thème du mois: Approches de quelques rapports entre droit et longévité Les questions de droit liées aux progressions médicales en matière de santé sont multiples. 1.

En droit comme en philosophie, deux thèses s’affrontent: humain immuable ou humain modifiable. Pour un humain non modifiable Le concept de droit naturel postule des règles immuables, dépassant l’homme. 2. The rise of the useless class. Doug Chayka The most important question in 21st-century economics may well be: What should we do with all the superfluous people, once we have highly intelligent non-conscious algorithms that can do almost everything better than humans?

The rise of the useless class

This is not an entirely new question. People have long feared that mechanization might cause mass unemployment. This never happened, because as old professions became obsolete, new professions evolved, and there was always something humans could do better than machines.

Why Time Seems To Go By More Quickly As We Get Older. When we were children, the summer holidays seemed to last forever, and the wait between Christmases felt like an eternity.

Why Time Seems To Go By More Quickly As We Get Older

So why is that when we get older, the time just seems to zip by, with weeks, months and entire seasons disappearing from a blurred calendar at dizzying speed? This apparently accelerated time travel is not a result of filling our adult lives with grown-up responsibilities and worries. Could We Upload A Brain To A Computer – And Should We Even Try? This Is the Tech That Will Make Learning as Addictive as Video Games. The way we learn today is just wrong.

This Is the Tech That Will Make Learning as Addictive as Video Games

Learning needs to be less like memorization, and more like…Angry Birds. Half of school dropouts name boredom as the number one reason they left. How do we get our kids to want to learn? The post is about why the future of education will be about flipping our current model on its head and about how key exponential technologies like AI, VR and gamification are going to drive a revolution in education. For fun, here's a video summary of this post. Instaurer un revenu de base - Sénat. VOLTAIRE, dans L'homme aux quarante écus (1768), Thomas PAINE, dans Justice agraire (1797) ou John Stuart MILL, dans Principes d'économie politique (1848), plusieurs auteurs ont avancé l'idée d'un revenu inconditionnel versé à tous les habitants d'un territoire.

Instaurer un revenu de base - Sénat

Certains pays ont aujourd’hui avancé en direction de ce revenu particulier : la Finlande a lancé une étude en vue d'une expérimentation d'un revenu de base en 2017 ; la Suisse soumet par référendum, le 5 juin 2016, l'instauration d'un revenu de base dans le cadre d'une initiative populaire fédérale ; les Pays-Bas comptent 30 villes qui envisagent d'expérimenter le revenu de base sur leur territoire ; la Namibie, l’Inde, l’Alaska, le Canada et Singapour ont lancé des expérimentations qui auraient amené des résultats positifs en matière économique et sociale. Selon les auteurs de cette proposition de résolution, le revenu de base répondrait à différents objectifs et enjeux, notamment : Revenu de base et technologies de la singularité : même combat ?

Oui, c'est même l'avenir affirme notre contributeur au Plus. (GILE MICHEL/SIPA) Have we reached 'peak food'? Shortages loom as global production rates slow. The world has entered an era of “peak food” production with an array of staples from corn and rice to wheat and chicken slowing in growth – with potentially disastrous consequences for feeding the planet.

Have we reached 'peak food'? Shortages loom as global production rates slow

New research finds that the supply of 21 staples, such as eggs, meat, vegetables and soybeans is already beginning to run out of momentum, while the global population continues to soar. Peak chicken was in 2006, while milk and wheat both peaked in 2004 and rice peaked way back in 1988, according to new research from Yale University, Michigan State University and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research in Germany. What makes the report particularly alarming is that so many crucial sources of food have peaked in a relatively short period of history, the researchers said. “People often talk of substitution. If we run out of one substance we just substitute another. En politique comme dans les entreprises, “les médiocres ont pris le pouvoir” - Idées. Eternal 5D Data Chip Can Record All Of Human History. In order to preserve our stories, we used to carve and paint rudimentary images and basic text into stone tablets and onto the walls of caves.

Eternal 5D Data Chip Can Record All Of Human History

Nowadays, any of us can store hundreds of thousands of documents onto a cheap, thumb-sized USB, preserving them for decades. Scientists at the University of Southampton have taken this one extraordinary step further, announcing that they have developed a method to record data that could outlast the human race itself. Back in 2013, a new type of data storing technology was debuted by the team at the university’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC). An abstract presented at a conference revealed that a 300 kilobyte copy of a text file was recorded into a specialized form of glass, a small “chip” that had been manipulated by a laser.

Denying Death: Is Radically Longer Life Good for Society? It’s no longer a radical question. The aging literature is replete with treatments that could prolong lifespan by 20-40%, at least in lab animals. Interventions such as caloric restriction, rapamycin and metformin have been studied for decades for their anti-aging capacity. Although there is still some discrepancy in their effectiveness in primates, the biomedical community agrees that they’re promising. What’s more, new interventions keep coming out. EXCLUSIF.

The U.S. military’s scientific and technological wing, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is essentially tasked with constructing the future. Robotic soldiers and artificial intelligence (AI) have both been in development for some time, as have instantaneous language translation systems and advanced contact lenses.

Forget Humans vs. Machines: It’s a Humans + Machines Future. Forget humans versus machines: humans plus machines is what will drive society forward. This was the central message conveyed by Dr. John Kelly, senior vice president of IBM Research, at the Augmenting Human Intelligence Cognitive Colloquium, which took place yesterday in San Francisco. Forget Humans vs. Machines: It’s a Humans + Machines Future. The Smartest Cities In The World 2015: Methodology. I have been ranking smart cities since 2012, leveraging the smart cities wheel (left) as a framework for understanding six key components of a smart city.

The early rankings were done with mostly publicly available data and last year, we published here, regional rankings which combined publicly available data (i.e. secondary data) with data collected directly from eligible cities (primary data) around the globe. Kate Raworth. Humanity’s 21st century challenge is to ensure that every person has the resources they need to meet their human rights, while collectively we live within the ecological means of this one planet. The ‘doughnut’ of planetary and social boundaries is a playfully serious approach to framing that challenge. The doughnut of social and planetary boundaries The environmental ceiling consists of nine planetary boundaries, as set out by Rockstrom et al, beyond which lie unacceptable environmental degradation and potential tipping points in Earth systems.

Why We Should Embrace — Not Fear — the Biohacker Uprising. Dr. Steve Kurtz was making arrangements for his wife Hope’s funeral when the FBI burst in. Kurtz, a professor of arts at the New York State University, was detained and interrogated for 22 hours as a bioterrorism suspect. The previous day, Kurtz had dialed 911 in panic when Hope passed away in their home in Buffalo, NY. When the paramedics arrived, they were taken aback by dozens of petri dishes full of bacterial cultures casually strewn around the house. They thought I killed my wife with some sort of biochemical toxin, recalled Kurtz in an interview with the BBC. It was all a tragic misunderstanding. Kurtz, a trailblazing biohacker, was growing completely harmless bacteria for an art ensemble that, ironically, critiqued the UK-US bio-terrorism paranoia. Russian Man Will Become Subject Of First Human Head Transplant Ever Performed. Is Technology Unnatural—Or Is It ‘What Makes Us Human’? Beavers dam rivers; birds build nests; chimpanzees use sticks to fish for ants or termites.

Nature at its best. But when humans build dams or use tools to feed ourselves, our creations, though admittedly more complex, are labeled unnatural. That’s Really Possible. A Simple Daily Pregnancy Pill Could Boost Population IQ And Save The NHS Money. An estimated 1.9 billion people are at risk of iodine deficiency, a medical condition that can stunt your brain power. Iodine deficiency – which can be avoided by eating seafood, cereal and cow’s milk (due to iodine in cattle feed) – doesn’t just affect the developing world. Up to one-third of children in Europe are thought to need more iodine in their diets. Will machines eventually take on every job? It’s a booming time to be a truck driver. According to data NPR compiled from the US Census Bureau, truck driving is currently the most popular job in 29 states.

It’s not that truck driving is a particularly sought after career path, however. Rather, it is simply one that is available and pays decently. Unlike a plethora of other jobs that have declined in recent years, truck driving has remained immune to the forces that have elbowed out different lines of work. In the past decades, computers, cash machines and self-serve pumps have largely replaced secretaries, bank tellers and gas station attendants, respectively. Ville durable. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Ville durable[1] est une expression qui désigne une ville ou une unité urbaine respectant les principes du développement durable et de l'urbanisme écologique, qui cherche à prendre en compte simultanément les enjeux sociaux, économiques, environnementaux et culturels de l'urbanisme pour et avec les habitants par exemple au travers d'une architecture HQE, en facilitant les modes de travail et de transport sobres, en développant l'efficience du point de vue de la consommation d'énergies et des ressources naturelles et renouvelables.
