Sigma is an attempt to build a functionally elegant, grand unified cognitive architecture/system – based on graphical models and piecewise continuous functions – in support of virtual humans and intelligent agents/robots. Work to date has focused on memory and learning; decision making and problem solving; reflection and Theory of Mind; perception, localization and mental imagery; language and speech.

PostHuman: An Introduction to Transhumanism

What is Transhumanism? – The 3 Supers with David Pearce

Three dominant areas of Transhumanism: super longevity, super intelligence and super well-being.

Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+ or h+) is an international cultural and intellectual movement with an eventual goal of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities. Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations, as well as the ethics of developing and using such technologies. They speculate that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into beings with such greatly expanded abilities as to merit the label “posthuman”.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xIQgBXw9-o”][vc_column_text]

Theory and Design

Dr. Natasha Vita-More — Body by Design

What if we could build platform diverse bodies that could be mind-driven avatars for parlaying our personas within computational systems and telepresence? Streamlined and adaptive, the platform-diverse body design meets the needs of users who enjoy material embodiment and virtual embodiment. This design system supports linear and non-linear time and interfaces with biospheric and cybernetic environments. Our users are persons who need whole body prosthetics that perform like a docking system for uploading. With this in mind, this body design’s apps and internal and external devices perform as a historical human system, yet provide a seamless connection with cyberspace. Because of its multi-level usability, the design specifies a smooth transition from human to transhuman avatar by adjusting to diverse social behaviors of a connective society. Further, its safeguarding of the continuity of identity is captured in moment-to-moment experiences that form narrative memory and behavioral patterns.[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mS8Q5_sZYH8″][vc_column_text]

Martin Krzywinski – The Art of Data Visualization, Design & Information Mapping

When Martin Krzywinski took a systems administrator job at Canada’s Michael Smith Genome Center, he didn’t plan on becoming a pioneer of 21st century biological data visualization. In fact, he didn’t even have a biology background: He’d done his graduate studies in physics and math. But it was the late 1990s, and he could handle a computer.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Post Human

In a hi-tech world entering biotopia, transhumanity sees the chance for naturalising bionics through one girl and her creator- but is soon interrupted when their sponsors use her post-human abilities to restore toxic old London.
