Why redesign the wheel? Brain emulation is always talked about in terms of making computers fast enough to do the job. Why not go with the design nature has already had such success with?

We've talked about replacing the brain one neuron at a time with artificial neurons that wont degenerate over time. The easier (and more controversial) way to use an artificial neuron technology though is to instead make a reconstruction of the subjects brain. The incredible sophistication levels needed for nanobots to replace neurons in a living subject is a long way off, if in fact that kind of control will ever be possible. The technology to put together a microscopic replication of a 1:1 resolution brain scan however is well within reach.

A subject could wear a high precision portable EECG device for whatever period turns out to be appropriate, plus get sessions of brain MRIs. After the patients death their brain can be scanned to generate an exact map of every brain cell and it's place in the connectome. This model then serves as the blueprint for the construction of a brain out of artificially created cells. These cells are connected in an exact copy of the connectome and also directly to a Brain Computer Interface. The data from the brain scanning is used to tune each neurons firing rate and tolerances as it is put into place.

The scanning and construction technology to do this is within sight now. This is the obvious solution to whole brain emulation; to emulate the whole brain. Those who go through the process will become beings with nearly unlimited potential. Constructed with artificial materials and carefully encased the brains would be effectively immortal. Encased with them a computer could be directly connected. This will allow emulated people to be connect with artificial bodies or to virtual/augmented reality environments. These bodies can be anything from replicas of people and animals, to machinery and spacecraft. Machinery or highly unusual body types can be controlled by using a virtual reality environment where the person has a simulated human body and uses simulated controls around them,

The use of artificial connections will increase the speed of communication between neurons to almost the speed of light. Emulated people will perceive, think and act at greater speeds than the current biological hardware is physically capable of.

We will surely learn to create new additions to the brain as well. Combinations of artificial neurons and miniature computers can be used to create new brain regions with new abilities.

The speed of travel between the stars could be increased to the speed of light for emulated people. All the needed data can easily be collected by the BCI and transmitted to the destination where another brain is constructed, exactly the same.
The person might decide to shutdown the original brain and leave it in storage on the planet they are leaving. Alternatively the original brain could remain active, with two copies of the person active at once, potentially merging back together again later.

Game streaming is something you can do today. Valve, Sony and Microsoft all have popular solutions for it, and Google is working on a new one. It's not that great, latency is pretty rough so you can forget about anything multiplayer/action based. Putting everything into the cloud is fashionable nowadays, but when latency is a factor nothing will ever beat on-site processing.

We sorta of have lightsaber fighting already in the form of tournament kendo, though they treat them like real swords with a single cutting edge. Lightsaber fighting can be different as it's basically a long baton that insta kills. so a shinai fits the bill for practise lightsaber fighting sans the unknown balance of a beam sword.

Dental hygiene would improve. I came up with an idea of with a mouth guard or some other type of application of a paste that grows onto the tooth a harder enamel & very quickly.
I saw the dentist the other day and it came up subliminally with all the staff asking about it. Worried about people changing and needing less supply and demand with dentists, peoples costs of educating, but I assured them people would still need a checkup and fixing.

>>Researchers have found a way to convert nanoparticle-coated microscopic beads into lasers smaller than red blood cells. These microlasers, which convert infrared light into light at higher frequencies, are among the smallest continuously emitting lasers of their kind ever reported and can constantly and stably emit light for hours at a time, even when submerged in biological fluids such as blood serum.

Small enough to excite individual neurons, which is one of the main use cases. This is actually a huge breakthrough and I'm surprised it's not getting more coverage in the science press. The ability to electrically measure or excite an individual cell is a game changer.

In other miniaturization news, did you know there is now a desktop sized particle accelerator in operation? Think of the possibilities hand-held particle accelerators would unlock. Who will win the race to emit the most micronized beams of radiation directly into your soft fleshy "human" tissues?

Chargin mah lazer part 2: now with more lazer
https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/wnjpew/scientists-turned-carbon-dioxide-into-oxygen-by-zapping-it-with-a-laser
So this is a pretty old article, but it got me to thinking. So there's this NASA award out now for a system that can be sent to mars and produce rocket fuel automatically without any other input.

At first, I was thinking about that thing I mentioned in the other thread, about sequestering carbon by turning it into sugar batteries. In model rocketry there are these things called sugar rockets, so I was thinking that could be a fuel, but the problem is the propellant isn't very efficient for its weight and is prone to uneven burns (meaning, explosions.) And you would also need the probe or whatever to mechanically adept enough to manage storing a solid propellant. So, big problems.

But then I thought about this laser. All you would need would be a probe with a solar collector, UV laser, a heat exchanger, and a collapsible fuel bladder. I would think you would choose a polar landing site to mitigate the energy costs of cryogenic storage. You siphon in Martian CO2, UV laser it to free O2, and cool it to form liquid oxygen, which while primarily used as an oxidizer in rocket fuel, as far as I know could also be used as the primary propellant, especially since Mars surface G is about 40% of earth.

The biggest problem I think is keeping the fuel tank cold enough long enough to keep oxygen liquid. I was thinking it would be easier to keep it cool underground, but then you'd have to bring in something that could drill out a million liters worth of Martian soil, hoping to create an air-tight chasm. If it could even work, I think it would blow up the weight budget. What do you guys think?

Reading current trends, this is what I see as most likely for the future of Energy production in the world:

It is possible to turn solar energy into either jet fuel or liquid ammonia. The former captures carbon from the atmosphere in the process but puts it back once it is burned so it is carbon neutral. The latter process produces a fuel which does not contain any carbon and therefore is also carbon neutral. Both fuels can be used to power fuel cells and jet fuel can also be burned to power generators. Both fuels already have the infrastructure designed to transport them and can be scaled up easily.

Certain areas on the planet are exposed to more solar irradiance than others (deserts mostly) and they are ideal locations for solar plants. The problem with that is that it would be very expensive to run power transmission lines from places with high solar irradiance to places that need the power, and you would also lose some power because it's inefficient to transfer power over long distances using electrical wire. Converting the solar energy into liquid fuel on site that can be shipped anywhere solves this problem. Areas that have lots of cheap land with high solar irradiance that is near traditional shipping lanes will become major hubs to produce carbon neutral liquid fuels to power fuel cells. What's really cool is that many of the major fossil fuel producing countries in the Middle East actually fit these criteria perfectly. They will be perfectly situated to move into this industry once it opens up and becomes commonplace.

I think that the solar plants themselves will adopt concentrated solar rather than photovoltaic because the materials will be cheaper as it just uses mirrors which can be cheaply mass produced. Systems using molten salts would probably not be needed as they could just churn out as much fuel as possible during the daylight hours and ignore dark hours meaning that the technology for this already exists today and can simply be scaled up.

The only thing that could kill this is intellectual property rights. I have a suspicion that some of the companies funding the research into fuel cell breakthroughs actually get their money from fossil fuels and they're funding the…

nigga, do you even know what batteries are made out of? Not only are they highly combustible they're also pressurized and have exploded many times before. We also use gasoline to power our cars and appliances and you don't see people freaking out because it can be combusted, in fact that's kind of the whole point. Fuel cells also don't combust it so you can just build them in a sturdy enclosure to make sure the fuel doesn't leak out.

You know what place they really, really "make sure" fuel doesn't leak out? Rocket fuel tanks. You know the number of times rocket fuel tanks have failed? Not zero.
Look, no one is denying jet fuel is more energy dense than batteries or sugar, by about 2000x. And while I admit it is pretty cool we can find ways to get energy out of hydrocarbons without combusting them, that doesn't change the fact that they are volatile, toxic fossil fuels that are infinitely more dangerous when an inevitable failure does happen than even highly explosive lithium batteries (like lithium itself is anything but stone-age by the standard of cutting edge battery tech.)

I mean, I guess its good to have the option to use fossil fuels in a slightly less destructive way, but is that the direction we really want to go? Why don't we use gasoline to power robots right now, then?

A cyberpunk dystopia where there is no such thing as privacy and no way to hide from big brother is coming at us a lot sooner than I expected. I thought license plate scanners were bad but this is far more spooky.

What other kind of augments will police soon use to help them efficiently detain the undesirables?

Due to the KKK, it is illegal to wear a mask in public or anything that intentionally hides your identity. At least it almost every state in the US. Elsewhere it may be different.

Also, good luck convincing the American public to accept it. The Left sees the KKK as cowards too afraid to show their face and the Right sees Antifa as cowards too afraid to show their face. Many people I've spoken with say that if you have to hide your face for your cause, you're up to no good.

It is the basic equivalent of, "If you've got nothing to hide, You've nothing to fear." But since we're here on 420chan, we're all scumbags pretty high on the list for persecution and all. Kirtaner is a shill and whatnot, working for big hentai and the dea.

It was the first art style I think I really fell in love with as a teen. I was actually fairly obsessive with it, not because I agree with any of its normative claims, but because I thought the pieces were beautiful, and I found the ideology fascinating.

It's worth considering how the futurists were really sort of taking the nature focus of the romantics, and inverting, or at least refocusing/distorting, it. The romantics thought that the enlightenment had put too much focus on science/reason transcending natural boundaries; instead, they saw people as part of nature. In that way, the perspective of the romantics was almost sort of a precursor to deep ecology. The gothic romantics focused on showing the horrors of trying to break away from nature, through demonstrating perversions like Frankenstein's monster.

The futurists had this same focus on their environment. The difference was, they reasoned that their environment wasn't forests or valleys; it was cities, factories, and technology. This artificial environment favored innovation like the enlightenment, but they celebrated the extremities of the environment those technological innovations were creating - the extreme speeds, increased violence, bright lights... all quite overwhelming.

This was reflected in the political ideologies that the futurists adopted, for better and worse. Early on they liked the idea of revolution and progress, so most were socialists, and a few were anarchists. However, most of the futurists were patriotically Italian, so when Mussolini rose to prominence, most flipped and became devout fascists. A few did remain left wing and staunchly anti-fascist, though.

The paintings the movement produced are gorgeous. The cubist influence is obvious, with colors acting like refracted light. It's all pretty dazzling. The focus on movement is quite taking as well.

To perhaps point out the obvious, futurism's most notable descendants are cyberpunk literature and industrial music. However, they completely reject the romanticism of the original movement, as well they should. Instead, they point the decay and depravity that our obsession with tech leads to. Cyberpunk almost always emphasizes the loss of humanity…

So these brilliant motherfuckers have actually tested the first successful use of a nanomachine used medically in vivo. Oh, and it's also a cancer treatment that is able to release devascularizing drug (or theoretically any drug payload) directly into tumors the nanomachines distinguish from healthy tissue on their own.

They're basically sheets of DNA that have been arranged into tubes, that fold up to hold the drug and open under certain conditions. With other recent advances in nanomachines like the 'gold walker' nanoscale chicken-bot that can walk on gold sheets, and others, it seems like the age of (Gen 1) nanotech is finally upon us!

What's the first drug *you* would put into a DNA nanotube and blast into your tissues? (one possible application of such bots could be assisting drugs which normally can't cross the BBB cross it, so the possibilities are endless)

We definitely need those artificial neurons if we want immortality to be within reach. Biological things are just so entropic. Futuristic though, we'd need to include things like organelle function, indirect signalling and so many other "background" and esoteric processes it would be restricted to the most straightforward and isolated cells types at first. A massive undertaking for a lazy guy like myself

Wait a minute you could literally just put dopamine in those things couldn't you? What are the authorities going to do, raid my stash of nu-meth?

Imagine the human race so dependant on a A.I, that the A.I is responsible for the reproduction of new people, which it grows in labs. For thousands of years, it spreads people all over the whole universe, all by itself. People have no idea of what is going on and has long ago lost their language.... Yet simultaneously live in absolute luxury. They are like barbarians except there is no reason to fight over anything because there is limitless supply of it.

Probably not *us*...
But I doubt certain levels of superintelligent AI would have many qualms about subjecting sped up simulations of us to every possible permutation of Cage movies as unending torture for trillions of years of subjective time. You know, for science.

soorrry babe but my main jew goertzel is absolutely right about getting to agi fastest- which is by seeding a metric shit ton of self organizing dynamics and letting some monster arise out the chaos. But I do think the singularity is a stupid idea, mainly because there's going to be some fundamental, mathematical limit to whatever the hell these utopians think is going to happen

but that's neither here nor there friend
