Next World

Have been recently viewing a program. What it going to be like with the advent of technology in the next few decades. Days of communication technology are over with nearly every sphere of our life being saturated with communicating devices of all sorts. Its going to be the visual feeling of the physical presence of our friends and families who are far off that's going to come to our homesanext.Soundsaconfusing?? Its more simple than we imagine. Those who have seen the Cisco Telepresence advertisements can get an idea about it.

But this is just a small part of what we are going to achieve.

 

Artificial Intelligence,or AI,is just on the verge of going to bring on a whole new revolution in the human world.Breaking the …limits of the powers provided to us by nature. Multiplying the thinking and processing  power of human brains to enable them do something we couldn’t have ever imagined before. Creating machines more intelligent than us could also pose a more fundamental problem. If their intelligence be more than us, they would control us instead of we controlling them. Soon the age would be of a master and slave relationship. Joining  hands with our intelligent creations could be the ideal solution and a crucial step in making our world a more advanced and an incredible place to live in.

Einstein and Alex – Redefining Parrots

Not that we haven’t heard of talking 
macaws and parrots, but having the ability is one thing, and breaking the limit is another. Some recent videos of parrots are really amusing and a pleasant experience to watch them talk, make sounds, and even analyze logically.Happy

Feeling of safety..

Recent steps taken by the authorities are trying to ensure road safety  measures in very enthusiastic ways. Several placards  awarenessand signboards in the local language ensures that people notices them and pays heed to the warnings. Still, sometimes I feel we have the worst road-sense when we walk on the roads. People often try to cross roads in places not meant to. I can’t say that am the sole exception. But for last 2 years I’ve tried to make a habit of not crossing broad roads without the zebra crossing. Also it feels really scary when families and friends are seen on  two-wheelers without helmets. But unfortunately, sometimes I find the cops who should be role models, breaking the rules themselves without wearing helmets on the backseat.Sad Hopefully, they rectify such mistakes faster.

Sourav Ganguly Interview

Undoubtedly one of the first of his kind in Indian cricket, who started the brand of aggression in Indian cricket, Sourav Ganguly, being interviewed here by none other than Cyrus. Some obvious facts and events which happened during his tenure displayed here with a touch of humor. I loved this.
