Cytaty, ostatni miesiąc (tu są wszystkie, większą czcionką)

Daniel Dennett’s naturalistic account of consciousness
Four billion years ago, Earth was a lifeless place. Nothing struggled, thought, or wanted. Slowly, that changed. Seawater leached chemicals from rocks; near thermal vents, those chemicals jostled and combined. Some hit upon the trick of making copies of themselves that, in turn, made more copies. The replicating chains were caught in oily bubbles, which protected them and made replication easier; eventually, they began to venture out into the open sea. A new level of order had been achieved on Earth. Life had begun.
The tree of life grew, its branches stretching toward complexity. Organisms developed systems, subsystems, and sub-subsystems, layered in ever-deepening regression. They used these systems to anticipate their future and to change it. When they looked within, some found that they had selves—constellations of memories, ideas, and purposes that emerged from the systems inside. They experienced being alive and had thoughts about that experience. They developed language and used it to know themselves; they began to ask how they had been made.
 …  His newest book, “From Bacteria to Bach and Back,” tells us, “There is a winding path leading through a jungle of science and philosophy, from the initial bland assumption that we people are physical objects, obeying the laws of physics, to an understanding of our conscious minds.”
 …  “Consciousness Explained,” a 1991
 …  science can explain consciousness in purely material terms
 …  the zombie problem as a typically philosophical waste of time
 …  like evolution, essentially gradualist, without hard borders /17-03-23


Anna O. Szust .. fake editor
 …  dozens of academic titles offered 'Dr Fraud' — a sham, unqualified scientist — a place on their editorial board
 …  Thousands of academic journals do not aspire to quality. They exist primarily to extract fees
 …  parasitic publishers
 …  in 2015, we created a profile of a fictitious scientist named Anna O. Szust and applied on her behalf to the editorial boards of 360 journals
 …  accounts for Szust on Academia.edu, Google+ and Twitter, and made a faculty webpage at the Institute of Philosophy at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań
 …  One publisher suggested that the profits be split (“60% us 40% You”)
 …  predatory journals on Beall's list (about 10,000)
 …  We have not included journal titles in this article, in part because predatory publishers often choose names confusingly similar to reputable titles
 …  Piotr Sorokowski, Emanuel Kulczycki, Agnieszka Sorokowska, Katarzyna Pisanski /Nature/17-03-23


Atheism is as natural as religion
 …  the ancient world did not believe in Gods, contrary to popular belief
 …  religious universalism
 …  the paradoxical nature of religion – the fact that it asks you to accept things that aren’t intuitively there in your world
 …  when the generally tolerant societies were replaced by imperial forces that demanded the acceptance of one true God
UK was sixth from bottom, vastly less religious than Thailand (94% religious) and Armenia, Bangladesh, Georgia and Morocco (93%)
 …  The least religious country was found to be China, where only 6% of people say are they are religious with 61% being confirmed atheists. Other countries at the bottom of the list included Japan, Sweden, Czech Republic, Netherlands and Hong Kong. /17-03-15


Quantum technologies
 …  supersensitivity makes it great for measuring
 …  atomic clock could use this discrepancy to make an ultra-precise height measurement
 …  quantum gravimeters
 …  nanoscale diamonds with nitrogen vacancies
 …  ghost imaging
 …  magnetometers that can in principle watch your every neuron
 …  ufficiently long cipher, randomly generated this way and used only once, is absolutely secure
 …  quantum computers so attractive .. they will work fundamentally differently
 …  the entangling of multiple qubits is paramount
 …  a description of a 50-qubit computer would require a quadrillion bits of digital memory
 …  anyons
 …  Shor’s famed algorithm .. a million qubits
 …  Feynman .. the computer will do exactly the same as nature
 …  David Deutsch .. quantum computer would serve as proof positive of universes beyond the known: the “many-worlds interpretation”
 …  constructor theory asserts that those laws actually arise from what is and is not possible
 …  software .. Windows for quantum
 …  Even deeper learning
 …  Quantum Algorithm Zoo /17-03-14


DNA could store all
 …  More data were created in the past 2 years than in all of preceding history.
 …  215 million gigabytes in a single gram of DNA
 …  72,000 DNA strands, each 200 bases long
 …  1.6 bits of data per nucleotide
 …  writing and reading to DNA is relatively slow /17-03-03


Giant Neuron
 …  a giant neuron wrapped around the entire circumference of a mouse's brain
 …  across both hemispheres
 …  it could be coordinating signals from different areas to create conscious thought
 …  The claustrum is so densely connected /17-03-02


the limitations of reason
 …  Once formed, impressions are remarkably perseverant
 …  The Enigma of Reason
 …  Coöperation is difficult to establish and almost as difficult to sustain. For any individual, freeloading is always the best
 …  Reason is an adaptation to the hypersocial niche
 …  “myside bias”
 …  the environment changed too quickly for natural selection to catch up
 …  The Knowledge Illusion: Why We Never Think Alone
 …  “illusion of explanatory depth”
 …  no sharp boundary between one person’s ideas and knowledge and those of other member of the group
 …  ways of thinking that now seem self-destructive must at some point have been adaptive
 …  people experience genuine pleasure—a rush of dopamine—when processing information that supports their beliefs
 …  Providing people with accurate information doesn’t seem to help /17-03-01


taxing robots is not a good idea
 …  Bill Gates’s proposal
 …  scepticism about society’s ability to manage rapid automation
 …  negative externality
 …  Automation can be understood as the replacement of labour with capital /17-02-24
