Future world of cyber-consciousness mindclones

In a not-too-far-future, robotic mind-clones will accompany us to the ballot box or grocery store, sit in on business meetings we can't make, argue with us occasionally and keep our essence alive long after we're gone. "There will be continued advances in software that we see throughout our entire life, Eventually, these advances in software will rise to the level of consciousness." Martine Rothblatt told a packed audience at SXSW according to an article in USA Today.

Scientists have successfully traced how memories are imprinted on the brain

In a paper published in the science journal Nature, scientists report success in tracing how memories are imprinted on the brain. According to Professor Ellen Carpenter, chair of UCLA's undergraduate Neuroscience program, this "demonstrates that it is possible to find the cellular source of learning. Previously we had thought that learning was much more distributed across the brain." The experiment charted nerve cell changes in rats' brains as they made decisions - a process that could prove life changing if replicated in humans according to a recent article in The Daily Beast.

Time is running out for ethicists to tackle very real AI quandaries

Self-driving cars? Buses? Planes? Fully automated restaurants? Police drones? In the very near future, virtually all of us will spend some portion of the day with our lives in the hands of a piece of autonomous software. Clearly AI morality is anything but academic! A recent article in ExtremeTech makes the case that AI ethics is the most important philosophical issue of our time. This also one of the key issues explored in depth by luminaries such as Marvin Minsky Ph.D, William Sims Bainbridge Ph.D, and Martine Rothblatt Ph.D in the Terasem Journal of Personal Cyberconsciousness for almost a decade.
