Thanks Jon

Excellent

@cpu It does seem that music is big there. But then there is Richard Feynman.
I agree with you about K West. To your point, how many people do you know have written an original melody? Most people try to make up songs but they use old trite melodies that have been done before.

Gold

I've heard of people with whom light causes synthesis of scents or tastes.

Iron

Hey 78RPM, that list is populated overwhelmingly by musicians. Is there a relationship between musical talent (not incl Kanye West) and syn., or are they just the ones who detect it more clearly?

Iron

Thanks for the Michio Kaku recommendation, Jon. I plan to look it up in the future. :)

Iron

Synesthesia could be scary. How would you like to taste chocolate every time you heard a certain sound? They seem to have cerebral links that are unintended.

 

-- Yes, we lear a lot about the brain by studying how it works when there is a deformity, injury, or wounderous anomoly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you all for the good interactive questions and comments.


Hope you will attend tomorrow.  -- Jon

Thank you Jon and Jennifer for the lecture.

@cpu, yes, but take a look at this list

The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind by Michio Kaku

 

This has many of the answers about where present day research is. He is one of my personal heros.

Iron

Thanks Jon, again very good presentation.

I'll be there tomorrow...

Iron

Thanks for the interesting discussions, great food for thought

Iron

Thanks for another great session

Iron

Thank you Jon, Design News, and Digi-Key!

Iron

I wish I had synesthesia. Google it. Some highly creative and brilliant people had this condition.

Thanks again, all! until tomorrow...

What was the first organism to have its nerve endings grafted to an integrated circuit?

I have no idea.

@Kevin Barrer, I read about a psychology experiment where a person watches a video of a car crash and the car speeding off. Then the observer is asked "Which way did the blue car turn?"  He answers "Left." So the red car hit the blue car? "Yes." When he watches the scene again, there was no blue car. It was yellow.

 

This is common with eye witnesses. We are very manipulatable because there is a certain desire to please others that can make us question our own experiences.

This can also be whay many innocent people are incarserated.

 

 

Iron

I think Kripke is Elmer Fudds' grandson

The brain "wiring" also can be modified. Perhaps not by will, but through the inputs applied to the brain. Methamphetamine drug use and opiates come to mind. One feels happy or normal with the influence. Wiring paths for pleasure reception are employed. Maybe such paths become emphasized.

If only there was a way to choose and enhance other wiring, at will. Say, for paying attention at a critical time.

Iron

@Jon, nice Kripke impersonation!

 

Thanks -- That show is very funny,.

Iron

??? Memories are rewritten and re inscribed as we access those memories in different contexts. The nueroplasticity makes inscribing memories somewhat redundant. 

This suggests that programming books, memories, virtual experiences, etc., into a brain multiple times may create individuals with uncanny mental abilities.  I wonder if this could have any effect on mind over matter scenarios in reference to feats of strength or endurance.

 

Yes, and more. We will see on Friday how our minds are actually able to effect the physical world in ways we don't yet understand.

The QWERTY keyboard was designed to slow down peoples productivity.


I think this happened during WWII but check wiki for specifics.

 

Iron

Very interexting discussion.  Thanks Jon and Jennifer.

Iron

???? Is there not a danger of sensory overload with heada up desplays????

 

Possibly, We can be overloaded already. Today everything is overstimulation.


Mental overload can also be a way in to control the mind. Once the mind gives up on trying to understand everything it is exposed to, it becomes easier to maniplulate.

 

 

Iron

Thanks for the interesting presentation and discussion!

Memory is an amazing thing. Your brain sometimes decides to remember things "against your will", such as a stupid song. You do not want to memorize it, but your brain is not following your will.

Iron

I may have to miss tomorrow but will watch the archive and rejoin on Friday. Thanks.

Iron

What is an early example of a user interface designed to make it harder to use?

I also agree typwriter

Iron

IPV4 was not suitable because it didn't have enough possible addresse to handle the multitude of devices that can be connected globally.

 

After all, your refrigerator needs to talk to the factory every now and then, Every one misses mom once in a while...

 

 

Iron

There could be some pro's to manipulating memories... have a memory you'd like to forget? Done. Still, a very scary prospect. This course has really emphasized the need for ethics in engineering.

Iron

@ jongabay

"What about confusion in memories, where one memory becomes tied to another at a different time. Wouldn't that interfere with uploading/downloading of memories?


We have confusing memories even without uploads. Eye witnesses are rarley accurate as we want to think they are. And, memories can be manipulated today."

 

I was also thinking along those lines - I would think that the ties to an "experienced" (meaning we lived through it) memory would be different than the ties to a memory drawn from a book (or even from a movie). It seems to me that something "burned into" our heads would have a still-different set of ties to our other memories.

???What do you see as the potentially most useful implementation-ready but not yet popular HMI interfaes?


It depends on who it is useful to. An advertiszer who knows you are thirsty and walking by a store may flash a soft drink add into your head. That is very useful to them.

A memory retireval technique for our memories would be useful to us, but, dangerous too. If we don;t excersize our brains they become shallow and weak. How many people memorize phone numbers or driving directions any more.

 

As far as controlling and interfaciong to our machines -- I think projected displays, virtual displays, and a form of the google glass would be very useful but also a good speech recognition technology would be really great.

 

 

 

Iron

What was the first organism to have its nerve endings grafted to an integrated circuit?

Brain and cognitive studies have been for so long but I think Eye transplant is considered first

Iron

Why was IPV4 not suitable for the Internet of things?

Because maximum address digits of IPv4 are not enough for large populations.

@DWSY You only fill out one survey for the entire 5 sessions after Friday. So you have already completed the survey.

Gold

I was able to complete the survey after yesterday's class.  The survey link for today does not seem to be working

??? Presenters:  are we supposed to be filling out the survey form each day, or at the end of the class?

??? Memories are rewritten and re inscribed as we access those memories in different contexts. The nueroplasticity makes inscribing memories somewhat redundant. 

This suggests that programming books, memories, virtual experiences, etc., into a brain multiple times may create individuals with uncanny mental abilities.  I wonder if this could have any effect on mind over matter scenarios in reference to feats of strength or endurance.

??? Jon, wouldn't the memory ingram allow one to alter memory itself? obviously, this can has the potential for exploitation in  myriad ways...

 

I fear that too. We are so easy to exploit.

Iron

Jon it was an interesting discussioni. Thanks to you, Jennifer et al.

Iron

My doctor told me that wearable telemedicine might not be effective in many cases. He gave an example of a set of measurable conditions, but if the doctor did not know that the patient was experiencing nausea, the doctor might be led to an entirely different diagnosis.

Gold

a slug! wow, didn't have to worry about it running away.

 

--- :) -- Keep the salt away --

Iron

All right I nailed the slow rendering question.

Iron

Wow, I would not have guessed 'slug'. 

What about confusion in memories, where one memory becomes tied to another at a different time. Wouldn't that interfere with uploading/downloading of memories?


We have confusing memories even without uploads. Eye witnesses are rarley accurate as we want to think they are. And, memories can be manipulated today.

 

Iron

@78 RPM.  I agree and you know how good we are at complete software testing.

Iron

@wsequeira, You don't fill out the form until after Friday class

Gold

???We learned from a recent study that our memories are always rewriting themselves to help us excel in our current situations. Wouldn't retrieving and downloading memories interfere with this natural process?

 

I don't know. The body tends to adapt to new environments. Maybe our brains do too. Our will is something yet to be understood. How can what we want effect how we are controlled? -- All good questions.

@Jennifer Campbell - think survey form link is incorrect - linking to end of survey

Iron

@lepuckited, Even for autonomous cars, ethical decisions would have to be made: for example what if an imminent collision situation popped up and a decision has to be made -- steer head on into another car; swerve and hit a child on the curb; weight the value of lives in the car versus those elsewhere.

Gold

@ RiahardWJob :  future-proofing something is hard (humain brain can't parallel think of all future possibilities) ; but we can reverse-engineer and make something compatible to an existing feature set !

Iron

???? Was the question "what implant" or "what transplant"?

 

It was whart organism was connectoed to an IC. The answer is a slug. A slug has very large neurons and was able to be stimulated by the large geometry feature sizes on early IC's.

 

 

Iron

What is the effect of a slow rendering computer when in a submersive virtual reality world?

Slow computer in VR means bad reaction time.

???We learned from a recent study that our memories are always rewriting themselves to help us excel in our current situations. Wouldn't retrieving and downloading memories interfere with this natural process?

-- The 'echoing' of thought converts instantaneous information to a short term memory. The more echoing and retreival, the more long term the memory becomes. The more we dial someone's phone number for example, the better we remeber it as an example.

 

Memories are rewritten and re inscribed as we access those memories in different contexts. The nueroplasticity makes inscribing memories somewhat redundant.

 

 

Iron

@lepuckited - great question.

???? Was the question "what implant" or "what transplant"?

Iron

first organism to have implanted electrodes: hrm. What type of organism are we speaking of? A kingdom at least would help :). I've actually performed that on rats, but...I don't recall the very first organism....

Iron

The brain does not deal well it lagging feedback.

Iron

??@Jon.  Do you believe we as engineers need to take a harder look at these technologies that tend to cross ehtical boundaries?  Clearly the original premise is for teh common good, but as humans we are quick to modify or embellish on someone's idea for our own purpose.

Iron

@Jon: question effect of slow communication rates on VR? Our brain is accustomed to a world that moves in "real time". and it moves in real time if you are walking or riding in a supersonic jet. When VR slows below "real time" it is confusing and disorienting to an observer in VR.

Iron

???What do you see as the potentially most useful implementation-ready but not yet popular HMI interfaes?

 

Iron

??What is the answer to the question??

Iron

Thanks Jon, Jennifer and DigiKey.

Iron

Thanks Jon.

The various technologies you discussed have certainly challanged us as engineers when we are designing displays which use some of them. It is interesting to nte that old technology can hardly ever be forward appliwed, but the new technology can be designed to work in old applications.

The QWERTY keyboard remains still one of the most productive device in for example texting, programming and others

Iron

???? Is there not a danger of sensory overload with heada up desplays????

Iron

--- An effect of a slow rendering computer in a submersive virtual reality environment is nausea. If our body movements don't sink up with what we see, the lag time effects our equilibrium and we gat sick to our stomach .

Iron

IPV4 lacked the address range of 6.

Iron

???We learned from a recent study that our memories are always rewriting themselves to help us excel in our current situations. Wouldn't retrieving and downloading memories interfere with this natural process?

Iron

??? Has Memory Ingram used to transfer simple behaviors or complex sequences of events?

Iron

Interesting to peer into what's in the hopper for HMI.

Iron

Thanks Jon and Jennifer.  Thanks everyone.

??? Does anybod have a link to the rat memory store/recall item?

direct memory transfer in the matrix movies, learning new skills...helicopter anyone?

 

Wonder if that's why there are so many bugs in programs... ;-)

 

Iron

IPv4 is unsuitable for IoT for (at least) the same reason it's not really suitable for the current Internet: we're out of addresses, and we have been for some time! Only reason we can function ATM is due to techniques like dynamic addressing for consumer connections from a smaller fixed pool, combined with NAT/IP masq utilized such that a single eg "company" can get by with only 1 globally-addressable IP serving many devices internally.

Iron

Gold

it is not engough the address

Iron

IPV4 can't address all the devices expected to be deployed.

Iron

Yes, IPv4 does not have the addressing capacity for the zillions of pntential devices in the IoT.

Iron

Am I the only one hearing a cat meowing? :)

Iron

Hello to Jon's cat !   ;-)

Iron

Addressability of ipv4 is low

Iron

Too small number of addresses available

Iron

Why was IPV4 not suitable for the Internet of things?

Not enough bits for addressing all th devices.

Iron

. . . but IPV4 lifetime was extended by NAT routers.

32bits not enough to address all devices! seemed reasonable years ago.

Iron

Not enough bandwidth

Iron

IPv4 does not have enough addresses

Iron

IPv4 did not have enough addressing capability

Iron

I'm not sure but I thought the protocol wasn't sufficient to handle the size of information.

Iron

What is an early example of a user interface designed to make it harder to use?

The typewriter keyboard

efffect of a slow rendering in a purportedly immersive VR: immersion fail?

Iron

always thought ipv4 was limited in what could be connected

Iron

IPV4: With a 32-bit address, you run out of addresses...

Iron

IPv4 does not has enough adr bits for the amount of upcoming "things"

Iron

not enough ip addresses

Iron

Did not cover a wide enough range to accommodate all posible addressable mac addresses

Iron

IPV4 has less address bandwidth than that of IPV6

Iron

IP V4 doesn't have enough addresses

Iron

Not enough addresses in IPV4 when everything is connected to the 'Net.

Iron

IPv4 could not handle the number of addresses needed, hence IPv6!

IPV4 didn't have enough address space for IOT

ipv4, has not enough ip addresses

Iron

v4 ran out of IP addresses

 

because there are so many ppl connected to the internet now, there needs to be more possible IP address

Iron

Not enough unique IP addresses available

Iron

IPv4 does not have enough address digits to accomodate large populations

Gold

IPv4 does not have enough addresses.

slow rendering computer may lead to dizziness and confusion.

>>>effect of a slow rendering computer when in a submersive virtual reality world<<<

Useless when user needs the info for critical decision. So the doc would continue cutting in a procedure, for example...

Iron

Physiological effects

Iron

Jon - I remember an episode of "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." in which the director was able to track Solo and Kuryakin room-by-room through a building during a fight.

for VR, having consistant slow rendering would tend to effect the physiological effects felt by the user. For example you tilt your head and your ear is registering the tile but you peripherial vision i sshowing a differnt rate of motion. Not sure how this would feel but I suspect nausia would set in as well as vertigo such as you get when flying nad teh senses are not agreeing.

Iron

lag and dissapoinment.

Iron

slow rendering computer delays synchronisation 

Iron

A recent cell-phone location showed the 4 members in a car were spread out over 15 miles on the freeway.

slow rendering computer in a VR environment is disappointment. tried it back in the day with a '486.

Iron

Any lag time that is not perceptable is acceptable.

The slow-rendering computer in a submersive VR could be very like the delays seen on a two-sided video conversation carried out on broadcast TV - the clumsy delays, the occasional "talking over each other," etc.

Well, ZigBee is a great contend to BT.

 

Iron

Triggers motion sickness in some people

Iron

Jerky actions, would not get fluid motion

Iron

There is lag. There might also be loss of frames? The user experience is poor.

Iron

Its the lag that is killing the experience.

In real life there is not lag.

Iron

Slow rendering computer will take too long to produce effective feedback for the user.

Iron

Voice recognition is great

Iron

The user has to often wait for the computer to respond before proceeding on.

Iron

you have to stop what you're doing to wait for the computer to catch up.  Just like you used to have to stop and wait for your internet search to complete on dial-up.

Iron

 What is the effect of a slow rendering computer when in a submersive virtual reality world? Boredom!

Iron

dithering of images makes it lose its reality illusion

stop-start video

Iron

Although even current 3D vision (i.e. 3D-BD) have side effects like headaches

Iron

Slow pcs would not be real time or real-response

Iron

triggers motion sickness for a lot of people

Iron

Lag time prevents accurate positioning

Iron

The slow computer rendering leaves you inside The Matrix . . .

What is the effect of a slow rendering computer when in a submersive virtual reality world?

Dizziness, nausia

Iron

The effect of lag between what is displayed and what is expected by the wearer can cause headaches 

Iron

effect of slow pc in virtual world  causes disorientation

Iron

Effects are video delays, loss of information and for those immersed in VR, motion sickness.

Iron

Mismatch between proceesing brain speed/reaction vs. feedback on actual action renderinng/consequence.

Iron

Slow computer in VR means reduced reaction time. Could be dangerous for situations requiring quick reaction time.

Iron

Lag, you turn your head but the image lags behind.

Additionally, we are no longer using the points system, offering "graduation", or giving grades. The IEEE hours are taking the place of that. There are some important things for you to know about earning the hours. The most important ones are that you need to attend these courses live, you need to attend a minimum of two of them per semester, you need to fill out a course evaluation form within 2 weeks of the end of the class, you need to attend 4 out of the 5 classes per course, and you need to participate in the chat function every day you attend. Please click on the link at the top of this page that says "How do I earn IEEE professional development hours" to read all of these important details and more.

Good morning - it's a beautiful sunny day here in Boston!
