Space, robotics and artificial intelligence

I gave a speech at Festival delle Idee, hosted by Space Meetings Veneto, on space, robotics and artificial intelligence, in conversation with Francesca Ponzecchi. I believe we are at the beginning of a new era of exploration and opportunity, made possible by extraordinary technical advances that are lowering the costs of access to space and […]

The Progress Of Quantum Technologies

In this converastion with Amara Graps, we discussed quantum technologies and her work with analyzing and communicating their progress to a divers audience of researchers, managers, and investors. Amara is a former planetary scientist who has pivoted to the field of quantum technologies. Amara shares her journey and the challenges she faced during the pandemic

Why I Don’t Want to Travel Faster Than Light?

The following is the edited transcript of a talk entitled “Ontological Cosmology” I gave in New York City in 2014. I am revisiting older recordings and use AI to clean up the text, making it more readable. Ontological Cosmology What we are going to discuss here is entirely speculative. It will likely prove controversial for

Digital Biology

Probably the most important immediate benefit that you can derive from digital biology, is the mRNA vaccine against COVID-19. This has been developed, tested. and then produced based on our increased knowledge about what is the digital basis of biology, and how it works. But there are many other benefits as well: from understanding your

Jolting Space!

Jolting technologies provide such a disruptive advantage, that the ability to apply them across different fields, cross contaminating and taking advantage of the increasing rate of acceleration, is irresistible. SpaceX is designing, prototyping and testing a new generation of spacecraft called Starship. Starship serial number 8, SN8, flew to the altitude of 12.5 kilometres just

Dimensions of Knowledge

As we look out on the world, trying to understand it, we structure our knowledge of the information collected, across several dimensions. Spatial, temporal, static, dynamic, and reflect the organization of the information in our theories and experiments. We aim to make them reliable and reproducible, to serve as a firm basis for the implementation

Democratizing Access to Artificial Intelligence

The benefits of AI can spread widely through a novel approach by Neuromation, leveraging the decentralized hardware infrastructure of blockchain to generate data for deep learning applications. The recent explosion of concrete and widespread applications of Artificial Intelligence is due to the availability of ever more powerful hardware platforms and sophisticated algorithms, coupled with very
