The Swedish Data Inspection Board. Ubiquitous Computing

The Swedish Data Inspection Board If you say “Ubicomp”, many laughs and thinks of intelligent fridge. But the phenomenon should not be underestimated. For years, IT industry in the U.S., EU and Japan spent astronomical sums on development. People and equipment are bound together in a giant wireless network, it is intended, and it could [...]

The Virtual Brain Project simulating the human brain

The ultimate challenge for mankind • A vast amount of experimental data and knowledge has accumulated – models can drive organization • Different brain areas are being studied – models can unify data and knowledge • Industrial‐scale science is generating a data deluge – models can absorb the data • Exascale databasing is becoming feasible ‐ the data can be managed • Exascale supercomputing will be possible by 2018 ‐ thresholds has been reached to simulate biology • Math and physics approaches can abstract most biological processes ‐ computer representation is possible. Computer graphics, Internet, VR technologies can visualize massive data structures – virtual structural and functional anatomy is possible • VR and robotics can interface with brain models – models can be tested and calibrated • Comprehensive brain screening and scanning can provide medical data – root causes can be simulated •AI and neuromorphic technologies are waiting for brain inspired architectures – new generation technologies can be created SUPPORT The Blue Brain Project, supported by the Swiss Government, built a prototype facility. The Spanish government committed to the project. The project collaborates with many in Israel, Spain, Hungary, UK, USA, Sweden, etc The flagship will involve many experimental, medical, theoretical, computer, robotics, and technology lab including in France, Italy, Germany, USA, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Australia, etc And a number of industry partners (pharma, bioservices & biotech, computer). IBM is a technology partner. Read document here

Ethical issues involved in hybrid bionic systems research

„ “What kind of privacy safeguards are needed if a machine can read your thoughts? „ Will cognition enhancers exacerbate differences between rich and poor? „ Or, instead, will they relegate social diversity to the status of historical artifact? „ What happens if we deduce through neuroimagingthe physiological basis for morality? „ Or, and by [...]

World’s first brain prosthesis revealed

* 19:00 12 March 2003 by Duncan Graham-Rowe The world’s first brain prosthesis – an artificial hippocampus – is about to be tested in California. Unlike devices like cochlear implants, which merely stimulate brain activity, this silicon chip implant will perform the same processes as the damaged part of the brain it is replacing. The [...]
