Weekly QUEST Discussion Topics and News, June 7th

Weekly QUEST Discussion Topics and News
June 7, 2013

The first topic this week is a continued discussion on how to take the QUEST ideas and formulate proposals for funding. There are a series of opportunities coming up and several of our colleagues have taken on the task of generating joint proposals so we want to allow discussion in support of capturing QUEST research ideas.

The second topic is a series of news articles this week I want to point out – there was the Israeli company that makes devices that read ‘text in the wild’ for the vision impaired (led us to the ShareBoost algorithms), there is also a story from yet another futurist Mr Itskov who has the dream of uploading the brain’s content into avatars (the 2045 Initiative), there was an article on gadgets measuring emotions and then a very interesting article on how schizophrenic brains are not fooled by the hollow mask illusion (this provides a great forum for a discussion on information flow architectures of TD versus BU).

If there is time the left over topics from last week still need to be tied up – there was an effort to capture the relationship between the amount of IA (intelligence amplification) that can be achieved and the ‘friction’ or ‘alignment’ of the computer aid with the representation of the human partner. Then there was also the Palantir: like an operating system for data analysis blog entry that provides insight into information flow in systems of systems.
