    New magnetism-control method could lead to ultrafast, energy-efficient computer memory

    Original @ KurzweilAI » News Researchers at UC Berkeley and UC Riverside have developed an ultrafast new method for electrically controlling magnetism in certain metals — a breakthrough that could lead to more energy-efficient computer memory and processing technologies. “The development of a non-volatile memory that is as fast as charge-based random-access memories could dramatically improve performance and energy efficiency [...] [...]

    Here’s How to Get to Conscious Machines, Neuroscientists Say

    Original @ Singularity Hub “We cannot be conscious of what we are not conscious of.” – Julian Jaynes, The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind Unlike the director leads you to believe, the protagonist of Ex Machina, Andrew Garland’s 2015 masterpiece, isn’t Caleb, a young programmer tasked with evaluating machine consciousness. Rather, it’s his target […] [...]
