Wall Street Journal explores the future of satellite internet.

The most reliable streaming providers have typically used cable to deliver content. But that’s all changing with the launch of new and better satellites that could one day give us 5G, low latency data. The Wall Street Journal speaks with the chief of the International Bureau at the FCC to discover how those changes are happening almost overnight.

Our brain has 86 million neurons connected by 3 million kilometers of nerve fibers and The Human Brain Project is mapping it all.

One of the key applications is neuromorphic computing – computers inspired by brain architecture that may one day be able to learn as we do.

The Science Elf explores the rise of and fall of Flash, a technology that enabled rich interactivity on the internet since the late 90s.

It became ubiquitous on the web and met its doom at the hands of the Steve Jobs, no really.

I do take issue with the statement in the video that Flash was a “flash in the pan” technology. It was prevalent for the better part of dozen years. Flash had staying power and it was only the pull of the iPhone that killed it.

The 5th Kind has a slightly alarmist, yet interesting, look at how AI will transform our lives, society, and the nature of what it means to be human.

As we become ever more reliant on cellular phones and devices to aid in our everyday tasks; rapid development into new technologies and Artificial Intelligence is underway at an alarming rate.

Modern devices are now specifically designed to interact with us in ways that mimic a real human being. Applications such as “siri” and “google-cast” are providing the user with a human-like interaction experience. These companies are Creating Artificially intelligent machines. Machines exhibiting cognitive behaviour, with human-like intelligence.

In this Documentary we explore the race to perfect AI machinery – researchers believe that very soon a “singularity” will be created. A machine that rises beyond human control. Something uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in catastrophic changes to human civilization.  

It’s always fun to see what the “normies” think about what AI engineers are working on. Winking smile
