The Newsletter for Research Professionals:
Science has become the land of awe and opportunity for researchers, with the field expanding at an exponential rate to rival that of Moore’s law. Speaking of Moore’s law, that scientific research is becoming more connected with computer science all the time. Biology, geology and other sciences which in the past have been completely distinct and unrelated fields are merging with computer technology to create the wonders of the future. Today we feature amazing fields of scientific research.
There is no better way to understand what scientific research means in today’s world than to look at the people engaged in some of these contemporary and exciting areas, particularly the broadening field of artificial intelligence – the ultimate merger between man and computer.
Artificial Intelligence Research:
At the forefront of the challenging, futuristic (or is it?) field of artificial general intelligence is Daniel Dewey who is an independent scholar working on the theory of safe and beneficial artificial general intelligence. Dewey works alongside guys like Vladimir Nesov, a decision theory researcher, to establish the moral and interactive engagement artificial intelligence will have with humans in the near future. Nesov holds an M.S. in applied mathematics and physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. His current project is Wei Dai's updateless decision theory, in pursuit of one of the Singularity Institute's core research goals: that of developing a 'reflective decision theory’. This is hugely interesting stuff and fabulous work if you can wrap your head around it.
Other research scientists involved in the future of artificial intelligence are Joshua Fox, Steve Rayhawk and Peter de Blanc. Fox studies the theory of superintelligence, developing models of agents with greater than human optimization power. He has served as a software architect at various start-ups and growth companies, and now works at IBM leading the development of a software product. Fantastic work if you can get it! Steve Rayhawk is a researcher interested in applying computational Bayesian decision theory to problems in technological forecasting, risk management policy, and social epistemology. Finally de Blanc is an AI researcher who holds an M.A. in mathematics from Temple University. He has written several papers on goal systems for decision-theoretic agents, including 'Convergence of Expected Utility for Universal AI' and 'Ontological Crises in Artificial Agents' Value Systems.' These jobs may seem extraordinarily scarce and too far out there for contemplation but they aren’t. Jobs in biotechnology, applied sciences, academic departments, nanotechnology, genomics and computer science all abound at ResearchNetwork.com.
"I am among those who think that science has great beauty. A scientist in his laboratory is not only a technician: he is also a child placed before natural phenomena which impress him like a fairy tale.”
This is an awesome forum for finding out what is new and happening in the realm of future sciences and contemporary science in the fields of human science and AI science and the combination of the two. Ted Talks sell themselves as ideas worth spreading and for the most part that is true. For science researchers TED Talk innovators and thinkers can prove inspirational for taking a project down a new path. TED describes what TED is, and the TED mission, like this, “We're building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world's most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.” It really is a great site to visit!
"The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny ...'."
Top tip for a career in future science
These scientific fields are not for anyone who is afraid to take a chance or dare to dream. That being the case applicants for jobs in these areas are advised to wear their heart on their sleeve. Share your crazy ideas with heartfelt enthusiasm. That coupled with the right credentials of course, will hold you in good standing. Research organizations generally want people who are passionate about what they do, individuals who will work on a team but who will retain a unique perspective and outlook for what is possible. Brilliant researchers in this type of science don’t all have PhD’s but they do all have passion.
"The cloning of humans is on most of the lists of things to worry about from Science, along with behaviour control, genetic engineering, transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic flowers. .”
