Singularity is Near


New Terasem Resident Scholar Program

The Terasem Resident Scholar is expected to do up to a year's worth of scholarly research regarding the Terasem Hypotheses, using the CyBeRev database as a resource, with the result published in a medium-to-high impact peer reviewed journal in the sciences or humanities.

Successful applicants to the Terasem Resident Scholar Program are expected to have a history of successful publications in medium-to-high impact peer reviewed journals in one or more field(s) relevant to the Terasem Hypotheses and CyBeRev. While not an absolute requirement, a typically successful Terasem Resident Scholar Program applicant would use their sabbatical year from a professorship for this opportunity.

Applications are by cover letter, CV and publication reprints to:

Where Death Ends and Cyborgs Begin, with Futurist Zoltan Istvan

Transhumanism is a growing movement but also one of the most controversial. Though there are many varying offshoots within the movement, the general core idea is the same: evolve and enhance human beings by integrating biology with technology.

Cast your data out into Space!

Join Terasem in an intergalactic time travel reaching for the stars and beyond, ad astra! Terasem created the CyBeRev Project (cybernetic beingness revival) in its mission to extend human life. The purpose of the project is to prevent death by preserving sufficient information about a person within a digital diary called a mindfile, so recovery remains possible by foreseeable technology. If CyBeRev people are recoverable in the future, then they were never really dead in the first place. Real death occurs when information about a person becomes so disorganized that no technology could restore the original state. When creating a free CyBeRev account, the User may elect to transmit his or her mindfile information through the cosmos via parabolic dish where it may be decoded by future generations of our own civilizations or civilizations we are yet unaware of. The chart below depicts how far the Terasem Spacecast traveled since it first began in 2007.

Artificial Intelligence: Mastering Chess, Then Societal Challenges?

In May 1997, an IBM chess-playing computer called Deep Blue defeated a grandmaster human chess player (under regular time controls) for the first time in history. It took four decades for computer programs and hardware to advance from their first victory in the mid-1950s to besting a world champion. In the twenty plus years since, however, chess programs running on relatively common hardware (like that used in smartphones) could routinely beat even the best human players.

Human Brain/Cloud Interface

Preamble: The Internet comprises a decentralized global system that serves humanity’s collective effort to generate, process, and store data, most of which is handled by the rapidly expanding cloud. A stable, secure, real-time system may allow for interfacing the cloud with the human brain. One promising strategy for enabling such a system, denoted here as a “human brain/cloud interface” (“B/CI”), would be based on technologies referred to here as “neuralnanorobotics.”

Could an Artificial Intelligence be Considered a Person Under the Law?

Humans aren’t the only people in society – at least according to the law. In the U.S., corporations have been given rights of free speech and religion. Some natural features also have person-like rights. But both of those required changes to the legal system. A new argument has laid a path for artificial intelligence systems to be recognized as people too – without any legislation, court rulings or other revisions to existing law.

Brain connections last as long as the memories they store

Our memories are as fleeting as the brain structures that store them, or so the theory goes. When the connections - called synapses - between neurons break, the memories they hold are thought to evaporate along with them. Mark Schnitzer, an associate professor of biology and of applied physics at Stanford, has leveraged microscopy tools developed in his lab to monitor the connections (synapses) between hippocampal neurons for the first time and confirm this theory, according to an article published in the Stanford News Service. In the mice that the neuroscientist and his team studied, the connections between neurons lasted about 30 days, roughly the duration over which episodic memories are believed to stay in the mouse hippocampus.
