It is with sadness and yet deep appreciation for a life well-lived that we honor one of IONS family of Circle Members, Anthony White, who passed away last week due to complications from leukemia.
A sustainable presence on this planet will require changes in our human behaviors. To achieve true, lasting changes in behavior, it turns out, requires changing our worldviews so the new action becomes part of "who I am." But if you've ever tried to change a worldview or pattern of behavior in yourself or another person, you know it's quite an endeavor!
In honor of International Haiku Day, IONS staff members are sharing their noetic poetry.
I woke up in time
believing it to be so
forgetting I Am
As I sit here now
watching illusion playing
I know what is Real
Edgar Mitchell, along with eleven other Apollo moonwalkers during six historic moon missions, helped change our perceptions of Earth. Suddenly, it was possible for humans to leave our planet and walk around and work on a different heavenly body. What an amazing feat.
Can we create an Artificial Intelligence that loves, unconditionally?
Dr. Julia Mossbridge explores this idea, in theory and practice. Hear about a new project, with some of the greatest minds in Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), to actually research and ultimately develop A.I. with the welfare of humanity coded into its very heart.
With recent public concerns about the potential harms of A.I., Julia asks the opposite question: How can the intelligent systems we create most benefit humanity? And can we apply ancient wisdom to the design of such modern systems?
Science and magic are words that don’t normally fit together, but that is exactly what IONS’ chief scientist Dean Radin and master mentalist Alain Nu will be presenting at the upcoming IONS Conference! While magic has been more recently associated with fiction and entertainment, the esoteric traditions suggest that real magic has always existed and impacted our daily lives. Scientific research is gradually revealing that there is more to magic than just fantasy.
