Sentience, Consciousness and Robots

07 Jul

If we watch or remember a science fiction movie like HAL-900, the supercomputer from the 2001 film A Space Odyssey, in which the computer starts making decisions by itself, or the parody of “The Simpsons”, in one episode a voice comes to intelligent life and falls in love with Merge and wants to kill Homer, today we are already able to identify the limits of these daydreams.

We are still not able to pinpoint the limits of the AI ​​machine (the film in which an intelligent machine created to control the environment after the ice caps melt and encounter a human boy will David Swinton (artist Haley Joel Osmet) will have an unforgettable emotional experience with this machine, and Blade Runner, in my opinion the best fiction in this theme.

Blade Runner’s AI machine and sophisticated Androids are still far from being scientific realities that allow machines “awareness” or even “smart brains” (the LaMDA machine is just a program with data stored in a cloud), and they are works of art. science fiction, both aimed at a future beyond the second half of the 21st millennium.

Formal rules, however complex they are, are just sentient and even they are not AI, along the lines of the “sentient” in the film “ex-machina” the robot (in the above modified photo of the film) develops an “instinct”.

The problem of our civilization is to allow humanity to get there in social, environmental and moral security, so we must think of consciousness directed to these phenomena, since one can only speak of consciousness of “something” phenomenological, and the most urgent consciousness is the social peace.

Already at the limits of AI, which is moving towards advanced sentience, it is able to identify people by their facial features, cars by license plates and solve complex logical questions and advance to machine learning problems by identifying and classifying data in natural language that achieve learning. “from” deeper machine (deep learning).

To have a deeper awareness of reality beyond false advertisements, promises of earthly paradise that hide atrocities, look to social security, which includes all people in an accelerated pace of actions (the Fatigue Society) without pause for reflection.

Our most urgent and immediate problems are human: the empathic relationship and social peace.

2020: IT predictions

21 Jan
It is famous and historical predictions in the 70s by the presidents of Digital Equipments and IBM that personal computers would not come true, but in the early 80s they were. 
The renowned Wired magazine said at that time that they would 
happen, but would be first adopted in companies and then in 
families, the reverse happened. T
he magazine's predictions for simultaneous translation were 
for 2015, they happened in 2017 but there are still complaints 
about its effectiveness, the bet on hydrogen cars was for 2010,
which is becoming reality are electric cars, slowly because of 
the market it is true, but also the technology of batteries and autonomy of the expensive ones still evolves. 
Five technologies may meanwhile change the market in 2020: 5G may definitely enter the market changing the business of smartphone operators , multiclouds as evolution of cloud storage will be an evolution of current clouds, AI in particular, Ma chine Learning will enter companies and businesses giving impetus to current IT.
And, finally, many possibilities of mobility can change, with the evolution of IoT.

The future and our life in 2100

10 Oct

We have written a few posts about Michio Kaku, about some of his speculations about physics, now we want to give him a jump in the future, different from what the technoprofetas do (the name given by Jean Gabriel Ganascia to the creators of technological myths), Kaku speculates using physics and being optimistic.

He writes: “In 2100 our destiny is to become like the gods we once worshiped and feared. But our tools will not be like magic wands and potions, but computer science, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, biotechnology and, above all, quantum theory, which is the basis of earlier technologies. “(Kaku, 2011)

If positioning as a quantum physicist, the term is inappropriate but would say theoretical, he asks: “But where is all this leading technological change? Where is the final destination of this long journey in science and technology? “.

His answer is surprising. It responds in a sociological way: “the culmination of all these disorders is the formation of a planetary civilization, what physicists call Type I civilization,”

Not surprising to those who connect all Newtonian mechanics with the logic that lasts until our days to the right, economic ideas and theories of the state.

And he goes on: “Unless we succumb to the forces of chaos and madness, the transition to a planetary civilization is inevitable, the end product of the enormous, inexorable force of history and technology beyond any control.”

Futurists already anticipated the office without paper, but the bureaucratic chaos makes the paper still to be spent exorbitantly, the work at home is not yet reality, but it could be.

Also the online shopping cybershoppers, cyberstudents making classrooms obsolete, and many universities would close due to lack of interest from young people.

What we see is proliferating cyberclassrooms and universities still record record numbers of students, professors who successfully give lectures on philosophy, physics and technological gadgets, giant media puzzles try to manipulate people’s heads, but “the lights of Broadway shine still as intensely as before. ”

But technology continues to be fought as one of the “evils of our time,” and according to Kaku the point is: “Whenever there is conflict between modern technology and the desires of our primitive ancestors, these primitive desires gain more and more.” : “This is the cave man principle”.

Kaku tells a story similar to today, watched a movie that changed his life was the “Forbidden Planet,” based on Shakespeare’s play “The Storm” in the movie astronauts find an ancient civilization but millions of years our front.

The discovery of the Chauvet Cave in southern France, where we rediscover primitive man capable of an art and a subjectivity comparable to our time, is nothing more than the idea of ​​this Cave Man who subsists in us and insists on not going to the future.

The book does not end there, his belief in the future is strong and resilient, but one sentence of Schopenhauer translates well his vision: “Each one limit the world’s limits in his vision,” personally he would add but the limits are greater than our vision.

Tracking in food production

13 Aug

The IoT arrived abruptly in agriculture, had already arrived at some time in the cattle ranch with the tracking of each head of cattle individually, now the “suply chain”, technical name for the monitoring of the production chain arrived on time, in the field and agroindustry.
Anvisa (Brazilian National Sanitary Surveillance Agency) and the Ministry of Agriculture begin to oblige the producer to have a more strict control over the use of pesticides, which implies monitoring and tracking throughout the production line starting at the field, but the problems are enormous for the application of the Law.
The automated tracking and tracing system, if properly implemented and well implemented, will provide all key elements and production details throughout the supply chain, enabling manufacturers to better respond to customer demands and food control in a competitive market internationally, those producers who do not fit can lose valuable contracts.
Fresh vegetable products, or their wrappings, cartons, bags and other packaging must now be duly identified in order to allow access by the competent authorities to the records containing the required information.
The identification can be done by means of labels printed with alphanumeric characters, bar code, QR Code, or any other system that allows to identify fresh vegetable products in a unique and unequivocal way.
The traceability of the INC will be monitored by the health surveillance services and the Ministry of Agriculture.


The technologies that will dominate 2018

28 Dec

One is undoubtedly the order of the day, but it must grow until 2021, it isaInternet2018 Virtual and Augmented Realities, with the difference that the first is the creation of a totally virtual environment while the second is an insertion of virtualities in the real environment, the Pokemon Go, second version of the little monsters grew in 2017.

Estimates from research groups such as Gartner and TechCrunch, is market will move more than 100 billion dollars by 2021, as next year is from Copa, Japan by example promises unprecedented broadcasts to 2022 in Quatar.

The internet of things is increasing its possibilities, how much we thought that the technology of networks 5G was distant in the USA already is in operation in many places and could be a reality next year, with this the internet of the things that depends on this transmission efficiency can reach new directions such as water systems, low cost energy and sophisticated traffic control systems, finally entering the IoT (Interner of Things) in people’s lives.

Another concern, but we do not know if the systems will become more efficient, are the security systems this year WannaCry affected telephone systems and FedEX, among others, reaching up to affect more than 150 countries, there are promises for 2018. Data production reached 2.5 exabytes per day (1 exabyte = 10 ^ 18 bytes), and BigData’s technology came to stay, but an important ally in the handling and handling of this data should be Artificial Intelligence (in Picture vision abourt polygonal brain), the intelligent agents that will dominate the Web 4.0 should appear this year, but the forecast to become reality on the Web is for 2020.

3D printer and nanotechnology are already reality, but should move forward, as well as the early reality of the 5G internet, we posted yesterday yesterday the “novelty” gadgets, the conceptual smartphone and the 360-degree camera, in technology sometimes surprise these things bombing the practical reality.

The technology is part of the history of humanity, we will post tomorrow about the year 2017, in facts.


Europe plan 5G to advance

05 Mar

TijolãoThe Europe in the 90s was a leader in second generation GSM technology, the old lumbering cell, was lagging behind 4G networks of broadband services, in relation to the United States and Eastern countries such as Japan and South Korea.

In a panel during the fair MWC (see the post on 03 March), Guenther Oettinger EU commission for the Digital Society and Economy said; “With 5G, Europe has a great opportunity to reinvent the stage of its telecommunications industry,” indicating a return to growth that is strategic for the economy in general.

The operators in the region, including Britain’s Vodafone and Spain’s Telefonica, were slow in deploying 4G while Japan, South Korea and the US were quick when compared to other advanced economies.

Mobiles brazilian operators have not reached the goals

30 Aug

Two  proposed by the Anatel for at least 95% in this indicator. company that regulates the activity of cellular companies in Brazil, Tim reached 89.51% in the rate of instantaneous transmission (upload speed and download accurate at the time of Internet use by the user) already Vivo got 93.55%.

The goals were related to mobile broadband.Anatel

Vivo claimed: ” systemic problems limited the number of measurements [the Anatel], which reduced the statistical validity of the data collected and made two results got too close to the rates set by the regulator. ”

Tim already said in a statement that “as compared to the instantaneous transmission rate, the company achieved the target in all states assessed, except in São Paulo, but clarifies that it is investing constantly focusing on development and optimization of their network.”

And now I can pay only 90% of the amount charged by the service provider?


Brazilian law PEC 479: broadband is a priority

13 Aug

The PEC 479 amends Article 5 of the Brazilian Constitution, to provide broadband BandaLargato the population should be a priority of the State, since “in contemporary society, universal access to information is consolidated as a key element for economic development and social nations”, according to its author Mr Sebastião Bala Rocha (PDT-AP-Brasil).

The reasoning is simple: to provide broadband to the population should be a priority of the State, since “in contemporary society, universal access to information is consolidated as a key element for economic and social development of nations” as stated by the deputy I proposed.

The PEC was proposed in 2010 and approved by the Constitutional Commission of Justice of the chamber in May 2011 and sees the social changes taking place, since “the internet, in particular, plays a crucial role in the construction of this new reality.”

The meeting is scheduled for tomorrow, 14/8/2013, 4 on the floor of the House of Representatives, and the SGP, the rapporteur Mrs Gorete Pereira (PR-EC), is approved, will be voted in two readings by the House still this month.
