Technological Humans

One way to express our relationship to technology is the religious view. At first glance, religion and technology do not fit together. At the core of Western culture lies secularization which broadly refers to...

Learning the Hard Way with AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) can act as a crucial power for good if related regulations enable its potential to flourish while eliminating its downsides during its integration into our daily lives. As a consequence, we...

The Truth about AI

According to Stephen Hawking, AI (artificial intelligence) could lead to the end of the human race. As AI systems have been outperforming human-beings in various domains, should we start to worry whether humanity is on...

Unfinished AI

Even though engineers working in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) seem to be ambitious, daily developments seem to be more mundane. For instance, Google Duplex, which according to their website is capable of conducting natural...

The New age of Digital identity & its challenges

We are living in a world increasingly driven by data in every aspect of our lives with emerging technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Big data, Blockchain & Cloud computing acting as the driving forces behind...

Pacing Along with Technology

Larry Downes argued in his book The Laws of Disruption that despite the exponential changes in the field of technology, there is an incremental change in economic, social and legal systems which becomes an unavoidable issue in...

Al-Jazari: Father of Robotics

Many of the tools, utensils, and machinery we use today, as well as the majority of the initial knowledge that formed the basis for the industrial revolution and earlier inventions, are the work of...

The Convergence of AI & VR – What You Can Expect

In the world of technology, convergence is the logical step. Just a few decades back you would have needed a dedicated pager, phone, camcorder, camera, handheld gaming device, GPS tracker, and a Walkman to...

Living in the Algorithmic Society

Given today's proliferation of latest technologies into our daily lives, it would be no exaggeration to say that a revolution occurred in the digital ecosystem. This revolution does not concern the technologies per se,...

Socializing AI

In our digital age, AI (artificial intelligence) applications outperform human-beings in various tasks. Being the real natives of the infosphere, artificial agents make us human-beings (aka analog creatures) to get used to this new...
