In our focus on the digital, have we lost our sense of what being human means? | Genevieve Bell | Opinion | The Guardian
MAKE OUR OWN FUTURE - And of course, there are bigger questions about the role of technology more broadly. In making the machines smarter, we have sacrificed a little something of ourselves – we run the risk of being reduced to data and the decisions it drives. I believe we are more than data, more than just intelligence. I worry that, in our current focus on the digital, we have lost some of our agency and some of our sense of what being human might mean. But I don’t believe this is inevitable or irreversible.

Gentechnik: Babys wunderbar genormt - Berg-Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Alles, was anders aussieht, was defekt und nicht dem Durchschnitt zu entsprechen scheint, wird abgelehnt. Wir sehen keine Menschen mit Behinderungen im öffentlichen Leben, zu dünne oder dicke Menschen werden offensiv in den wunderbaren sozialen Medien verachtet und gehasst. Deine Nase ist zu groß, dein Kiefer zu sperrig: Mach was, Mensch! Mach dich zum Teil der grauen Masse, der Jogger, der Kieferknochenmahler. Was also spricht gegen wunderbar perfekte Babys, wunderbar genormte Menschen?

Do You Trust Larry Page? - Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Given the fact that Alphabet née Google is the second most valuable enterprise in the world, it’s striking to consider Larry Page’s 2014 assessment of the company he co-founded with Sergey Brin: I think we’ve not succeeded as much as we’d like. [...] Even Google’s famously far-reaching mission statement, to “organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”, is not big enough for what he now has in mind. The aim: to use the money that is spouting from its search advertising business to stake out positions in boom industries of the future, from biotech to robotics. [...] Googles non-social approach to advertising vs Facebook and everyone else ] [ ad world begins finally to shift away from TV & other legacy forms & FB/Google are main beneficiaries coming years of changing ad spend ] [ Page/Brin want 2 lead the org 2 a new frontier. A new Google Search. &they think they a near it, ie self-driving car, that they think the timing is right NOW ]

Digital Dark Matter: The Unseen Forces That Influence Innovation | TechCrunch
Christian Cantrell wrote a piece about the unseen forces that influence innovation and how it is similar to dark matter. Despite all we think we know about the nature of the universe, the overwhelming majority of the cosmos lies outside our current powers of observation, yet it profoundly affects everything. The same goes with the forces that influence innovation. // [...] Despite all we think we know about the nature of the universe, the overwhelming majority of the cosmos lies outside our current powers of observation, yet it profoundly affects everything. So it goes with the forces that influence innovation. [...] But it might also be true that we are entering a time when the wisdom of surrounding ourselves with yet more computers, cameras, and sensors is legitimately called into question[.]

An Unstoppable Killer: New Research Suggests Cancer Can't Be Eradicated : NPR
The sensationalist assertions made in this article (particularly in the headline) don't follow from the results that the article describes. Part of the blame for this sensationalism seems to fall at the feet of the original scientist himself (Bosch). He makes an unfounded leap from the biological result that cancer seems to be an intrinsic property of genetic processes in cells (and the statements "You have to interfere with fundamental pathways", "It's a web of interactions" and "It's very difficult to do") to the assertion "will probably never be completely eradicated". Difficult is not the same as impossible. ||>> how we eat, how active we are, and our living environment (pollution and stress) is itself a multiplying factor whether or not we die of old age or of cancer or bc of complications of toxic medical cancer treatment. Period. Putting genetics out for the picture here. // via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8210560

dctp.tv | Sarah Spiekermann - Die ethische Maschine. The Ethical Machine.
Pressure to keep up with technological progress towards ... ~near singularity~ ... keeping up with the help of implants. Is that ethical? human rights is about bodily integrity. But pressures will mound eventually. Gesellschaftlicher zwang / societal force / pressure. That we have to optimise ourselves constantly. Backlash - People will seek out to be accepted how and who they are, unoptimized, unable to keep up with the attention demand and demand to process incoming data. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Sarah+Spiekermann - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8O18Q2CeXig + https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddK1ui1UUys
