    Probably alot of people have seen this before, but anyone who hasn't, I still think it's rather neat ^^

    And it gives alot of thought into how short we are from getting true AI; there's other things, probably under military development, which are farther ahead I'm sure, but it's surprising to see a game able to pull such off that well.

    Now, about half of that is scripted, rather than actual AI or anything, since there's still alot of bugs and it's not finished, and is just under development still. Even so, that even HALF of that ISN'T scripted, is rather amazing.

    Makes yeu wonder whot we'll have in 50 years XD Noone even predicted the internet... can't even begin to imagine where we'll really be, or whot major breakthroughs will occur that we haven't even thought of yet that will change everything.

    It's the only thing I could think of off the top of my head, honestly... but when I go looking for documentaries or something similar again I'll be sure to post here ^^

    Freaky!

    I wonder what the psychology behind the character "Milo" was chosen...is there a certain psychology behind trusting/interacting with a young teenage boy?

    I also wonder what will do to children and social interactions...will it better or worsen social skills? Will it make them less or more trusting of people in general? More confident in situations, or more uneasy (wishing they could be interacting with Milo instead)...?

    I also am starting to psycho-analyse why I am taking the psychological route in my interpretation of this video, as opposed to critiquing the technology involved or predicting where it might develop...*get out of my head!!*

    YouTube - Lecture - 1 Introduction to Quantum Physics;Heisenberg''s uncertainty principle

    -A wonderful series of lectures to either put on your Ipod or to listen to while at work.

    [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QI6vANpHhOA"]Michio Kaku About Future Civilizations[/YOUTUBE]

    YouTube - Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri Secret Project: The Planetary Datalinks

    -Both very thought provoking videos about the future of the human species and of the universe at large.

    Horrors! Maybe the Schools Are Working Just Fine

    -Another thought provoking piece. I prefer this particular one over the obsessive use of anecdotes in Taylor Gatto's works.

    The wealth of nations - Google Books

    -"It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest". Despite the fact that it is now over 200 years old it amazes me that people are still not aware of the principles that this book discusses.
    Surgeons replace one of your neurons with a microchip that duplicates its input-output functions. You feel and behave exactly as before. Then they replace a second one, and a third one, and so on, until more and more of your brain becomes silicon. Since each microchip does exactly what the neuron did, your behavior and memory never change. Do you even notice the difference? Does it feel like dying? Is some other conscious entity moving in with you?

    I am blown away by the TED videos - this is so in line with my personal soapbox and my educational role as the anti-teacher who deconstructs and reconstructs learning.

    Thank you very much for this - I will now look at the Godel Escher video
