Introduction From automated to autonomous and now cognitive, a paradigm shift is taking place in the design principles of machines, matter, methods and more. So, what are the principles of cognitive design? And are they centered around the future of humanity? From tabulating systems to programmable systems and now with cognitive systems, the evolution in computing allows humans to move beyond numbers and data to knowledge and intelligence. It is no longer about the replacement of man with machine, but…

Introduction The information age is evolving the very nature of warfare. Today, each nation increasingly depends on closely integrated, high-speed electronic systems across cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS).  But, it’s a cause of great concern if an enemy can easily use a weapon like a small, inexpensive EMP device. An EMP weapon can deny any individual or entity across a nation the ability to use electromagnetic waves for their digital infrastructure and digital connectivity, e.g., radio, infrared and…

Introduction For any nation, the energy ecosystem is fundamental to its progress and development. Since the energy industry drives economic growth, the power grid has always had a profound impact on a nation’s economic survival, security and sustainability. Now, supported by advances in emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain, internet of things and more, the growing digitization, automation, communication, connectivity and decentralization are on their way to fundamentally…

Introduction It is said that this is the best of times for direct to consumer (DTC) genetic testing companies, human disease genomics, and the launch of genomic data marketplaces. Due to advances in technology and the availability of cost-effective consumer genotyping kits, massive genomic data sets from human patients and controls are being created from across nations. As a result, it is not only the continued growth in the number of disease genes identified, but it will also advance a deepening of our…

Introduction Since the beginning of modern times, each industrial revolution was driven by different automation. While factory machines and fossil fuels drove the previous industrial revolutions, the ongoing automation revolution is based on data-driven artificial intelligence (AI). Understanding its impact and what will be required to support the AI-driven automation revolution is a fundamental necessity. So, as we evaluate the impact and the support needed to harness this automation revolution, it…

Data is the foundation of artificial intelligence-driven automation. Our data is becoming a valuable commodity to automation initiatives across nations: its governments, industries, organizations, and academia (NGIOA). Since data and information drive the value of artificial intelligence initiatives, the better the sources of data, the better the automation initiatives and resulting intelligence outcomes.Introduction So, it is quite interesting that most of our machine- learning systems today are being…

Introduction The machine workforce is on the rise. While technological innovation has always happened, existing and emerging technology is not only changing the pace of technological innovation exponentially, it is giving rise to an entirely new competitive workforce that is intelligent. As a result, it is not only the current models of business, governance, management, and technology that are being crushed under the weight of outdated economics of efficiency, but the human workforce and much of its old…

Introduction Human interest in exploring the unknowns has always been universal and enduring. While, over the years, the nature of exploration has changed fundamentally, humans have always been keen to explore the unknown and discover new worlds: be it beyond our geographical boundaries, new trade routes, lands or opportunities in cyberspace, geospace, and space (CGS). In pursuit of unknowns, it is our imagination, ideas, innovations and inventions that are helping us push the boundaries of our…

Introduction Even though neuroscience has made amazing advances, the origin of consciousness in humans -- and its nature and processes -- still remain largely unknown; the underlying physiological mechanisms of generating conscious beings are still not clearly understood. However, with the advances in brain mapping and neuroscience, we are perhaps much closer to finally understanding the fundamentals of consciousness in humans than ever before. It is said that what we cannot create we do not understand.…

Introduction Humans cannot exist without systems of meaning and having an identity. Over the years, human identity has been represented by a complex set of many external variables: family, community, ethnicity, nationality, religion, philosophy, science, occupation and so on. We are now moving towards internal variables of a human body: biometric indicators for human identity authentication. As seen across nations, biometrics technology driven human identity authentication applications are taking off.…

Introduction The rise of the silicon brain that can give rise to thought, emotion and behavior in a machine seems to be on the way. This is mainly due to rapid advances in software and hardware that are paving the way for next generation computational systems with cognitive abilities modeled after the human brain. This will prove to be a significant evolutionary development and especially important to enhancing machine intelligence for the complex problems that need to be solved for the future of humanity…

Introduction Today, we are no longer confined to what nature or natural intelligence must offer. From the steam engine to electricity and digital transformations to artificial intelligence, molecular manufacturing and bioengineering, each new transformative innovation has brought us a new (man-made) way of doing things in ways that nature did not provide for. As new ways of manufacturing and production are emerging, they are taking away an ever-increasing number of tasks and roles previously performed by…

January 21, 2019  |  CogWorld on FORBES   Introduction Technological development has become a rat race. In the competition to lead the emerging technology race and the futuristic warfare battleground, artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly becoming the center of global power play. As seen across many nations, the development in autonomous weapons system (AWS) is progressing rapidly, and this increase in the weaponization of artificial intelligence seems to have become a highly destabilizing development…

January 11, 2019  |  CogWorld on FORBES Introduction   The evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) — from artificial narrow intelligence (ANI), through artificial general intelligence (AGI), to artificial super intelligence (ASI) — is on its way to changing everything. It's expected that soon, artificial intelligence will combine the intricacy and pattern recognition strength of human intelligence with the speed, memory and knowledge sharing of machine intelligence.   As the rise of AI continues, AI…

January 15, 2019  |  CogWorld on FORBES IntroductionThe rapid progress and development in artificial intelligence (AI) is prompting desperate speculation about its dual use applications and security risks. From autonomous weapons systems (AWS) to facial recognition technology to decision-making algorithms, each emerging application of artificial intelligence brings with it both good and bad. It is this dual nature of artificial intelligence technology that is bringing enormous security risks to not only…
