Japan­ese researchers have invented a mind-​controlled third arm

In case you missed it. Researchers have suc­cess­fully taught vol­un­teers to use a mind-​controlled robotic arm to carry out two sep­a­rate tasks simul­ta­ne­ously. On a visit to the Advance Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions Research Insti­tute Inter­na­tional lab­o­ra­tory in Kyoto, devel­oper Shuichi Nishio explained that the inven­tion could increase humans’ pro­duc­tiv­ity as well as cog­ni­tive skills. Cyborgs of the future could even have a fifth or even sixth limb! Dur­ing the trial, engi­neers asked peo­ple to per­form a task with their own limbs, while also using a third robotic limb — referred to as super­nu­mer­ary robotic limbs (SRLs) — sep­a­rate from their body.

Good Look­ing Out!

The CEO of a com­pany that makes facial recog­ni­tion soft­ware has pub­licly stated that his com­pany will not sell to law enforce­ment or gov­ern­ments. In recent months con­tro­ver­sies have erupted over var­i­ous tech com­pa­nies con­tract­ing with the var­i­ous law enforce­ment and mil­i­tary agen­cies. At Google, employ­ees pub­licly expressed their dis­taste for the company’s con­tract to pro­vide the U.S. Depart­ment of Defense with Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence tech­nol­ogy. The frus­tra­tion was so high that some Google employ­ees actu­ally quit. Ama­zon was also faced with inter­nal strife as a group of employ­ees cir­cu­lated an inter­nal let­ter to CEO Jeff Bezos (who also owns the Wash­ing­ton Post, a news­pa­per with close ties to U.S. intel­li­gence agen­cies) demand­ing that he stop sell­ing Amazon’s Rekog­ni­tion facial recog­ni­tion soft­ware to law enforcement.

His­tor­i­cal Doc­u­ment Show Notes

The con­tent of this doc­u­men­tary has mas­sive impli­ca­tions for our entire planet. Deemed too con­tro­ver­sial for TV, it is unlike many of the UFO “doc­u­men­taries” found on net­work tele­vi­sion nowa­days, which con­tain far more spec­u­la­tion than fact, this film rig­or­ously exam­ines the officially-​still-​hidden his­tory of UFO activ­ity at nuclear weapons lab­o­ra­to­ries, test areas, stor­age depots and mis­sile sites — using authen­ti­cated files and the tes­ti­mony of vet­ted mil­i­tary eye­wit­nesses. Aliens pos­sess­ing tremen­dously advanced tech­nol­ogy have mon­i­tored and even tam­pered with Amer­i­can and Russ­ian nuclear weapons for decades. These stun­ning, nearly unbe­liev­able devel­op­ments must not be kept secret by a hand­ful of gov­ern­ment and mil­i­tary offi­cials. We all have a right to know the facts. Hun­dreds of U.S. mil­i­tary vet­er­ans now openly dis­cuss these omi­nous inci­dents and thou­sands of declas­si­fied gov­ern­ment doc­u­ments affirm their asser­tions.

Why the Future Doesn’t Need Us (+Audio)

From the moment I became involved in the cre­ation of new tech­nolo­gies, their eth­i­cal dimen­sions have con­cerned me, but it was only in the autumn of 1998 that I became anx­iously aware of how great are the dan­gers fac­ing us in the 21st cen­tury. I can date the onset of my unease to the day I met Ray Kurzweil, the deservedly famous inven­tor of the first read­ing machine for the blind and many other amaz­ing things.
