Singularity is Near


New Terasem Resident Scholar Program

The Terasem Resident Scholar is expected to do up to a year's worth of scholarly research regarding the Terasem Hypotheses, using the CyBeRev database as a resource, with the result published in a medium-to-high impact peer reviewed journal in the sciences or humanities.

Successful applicants to the Terasem Resident Scholar Program are expected to have a history of successful publications in medium-to-high impact peer reviewed journals in one or more field(s) relevant to the Terasem Hypotheses and CyBeRev. While not an absolute requirement, a typically successful Terasem Resident Scholar Program applicant would use their sabbatical year from a professorship for this opportunity.

Applications are by cover letter, CV and publication reprints to:
Terasem Movement, Inc.
Attn: Executive VP, Terasem Resident Scholar Program
82 Lanternback Island Drive
Satellite Beach, FL 32937

Transparent Brains for Large-scale Connectomic Mapping

Japanese researchers at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute have created a new technique for converting brain tissue into transparent tissue to reveal 3D brain anatomy at very high resolution, according to an article in Kurzweil AI News. The new technique, called ScaleS, has been used for large-scale connectomic mapping and 3D neural circuit reconstruction.

Origin of Robot Species

University of Cambridge researchers have built a robot that can build other (simpler) robots, test which one does best, and automatically use the results to improve the design for the next generation of robots, according to an article in Kurzweil AI News. This is but one step away from self-improving reproduction in a machine ... basically the beginning of Darwinian evolution in machines. Considering that the pace of such evolution will be a billion times faster than it was with biological organisms, Kurzweil may have his Singularity very soon.

Humour in a Machine

Researchers at Microsoft have developed an artificial intelligence system with a sense of humour. According to an article in Bloomberg News, the system is intended to sift through over 5000 black and white cartoons submitted to the New Yorker every week to find the funniest choices among captions that make similar jokes. The lack of humour in an AI has been a mainstay in science fiction, perhaps best represented by Commander Data in Star Trek: The Next Generation

Brain connections last as long as the memories they store

Our memories are as fleeting as the brain structures that store them, or so the theory goes. When the connections - called synapses - between neurons break, the memories they hold are thought to evaporate along with them. Mark Schnitzer, an associate professor of biology and of applied physics at Stanford, has leveraged microscopy tools developed in his lab to monitor the connections (synapses) between hippocampal neurons for the first time and confirm this theory, according to an article published in the Stanford News Service. In the mice that the neuroscientist and his team studied, the connections between neurons lasted about 30 days, roughly the duration over which episodic memories are believed to stay in the mouse hippocampus.
