Technology has changed the way we grieve, but it’s also starting to make a difference to the way we deal with death’s logistics, too.

The New York Times reports that startups—often run by millennials, it drily notes—are increasingly creating digital tools that help people plan for their demise.

Assessment

Though for those determined not to admit defeat, cryogenics is still an option:

KrioRus, the only company outside of the U.S. prepared to put your head on ice after you die, will do so for a modest $12,000. It still doesn’t know what to do further down the line, though.

35 INNOVATORS Under 35

M.I.T TECHNOLOGY IN REVIEW

The 35 Innovators Under 35 is a yearly opportunity to take a look at not just where technology is now, but where it’s going and who’s taking it there. More than 500 people are nominated every year, and from this group MIT editors pick the most promising 100 to move on to the semifinalist round.

Their work is then evaluated by a panel of judges who have expertise in such areas as artificial intelligence, biotechnology, software, energy, and materials. With the insight gained from these rankings, the MIT editors pick the final list of 35.

Ten Fascinating [Medical-Technical-Commercial] Things

Ten Fascinating Things

By MIT Technology Review

  1. Doctors have kept fetal lambs alive in plastic artificial wombs for weeks, a technology that could soon help improve the care of premature babies.
  2. Google is tweaking its search algorithms and adding new reporting tools in order to help tackle fake news and offensive content.
  3. One of the best ways to learn is to ask someone for advice when you’re confused—which is exactly what this robot is able to do.
  4. Uber has ambitiously promised that its flying taxi vision will become a reality by 2020. (Relatedly: is it time we stopped calling these things flying cars?).
  5. By using lasers to identify the distinctive noises made by the beating wings of mosquitos, researchers might be able to find new ways to fight malaria.
  6. Boston Dynamics, the manufacturer of many a nightmarish robot, has been testing its mechanical dog, Spot, for package delivery in Boston.
  7. These tiny finger wearables let people touch what’s not there in virtual reality.
  8. Tiny water droplets in fog scatter light, making it impossible for us to see. But a new trick could overcome that to help lidar work better in extreme weather.
  9. China has built and launched its first ever homegrown aircraft carrier—a very public flex of its increasingly advanced technological muscle.
  10. An artificial intelligence scriptwriter produced every line for David Hasselhoff to act out in this very strange short short film. It’s as surreal as it sounds.

Q&A with Futurist Martine Rothblatt

Join Our Mailing List

[By MIT Technology Review]

Whether machines and artificial intelligence will ever become conscious is an eternally debated topic, but Martine Rothblatt thinks it shouldn’t be.

We talked with Rothblatt about why she thinks denying that machines will become conscious is similar to denying evolution, and why society must prepare to grant rights to the virtual beings of the future.
