The f(x) = e^x | synthetic media and ingestible robots
Good Day! This is my weekly newsletter, with a dose of insights into the future. The topic of this newsletter is the exponential times we live in, hence the title of f(x) = e^x, which is the (natural) exponential function.
What is Synthetic Media: The Ultimate Guide
My latest article:
Media expressed in the purely synthetic form will radically accelerate the process of content creation and delivery. Expect a rise in synthetic media in the coming years.
Its accessibility and interactivity will usher in an exciting new era of digital media, one in which creativity, insight, and imagination determine content dissemination instead of the limitations imposed by physical space.
Novel forms of synthetic media blur the distinction between physical and digital environments. This new creative expression category will unleash powerful user experiences built on a new dynamic relationship between media and human perception.
Three Useful Nuggets of Information
My weekly tips from around the web to get you thinking.
1. This Is Your Chance To Be a Quantum Surgeon
Even as medicine moves into the digital age, it's still a physical process. Doctors must examine patients in person to understand what's happening and make diagnoses. But new technology is about to change all that. The PillBot™, an ingestible robot that can travel through your digestive system, is making its way toward FDA approval. By 2024, it will be able to diagnose patients worldwide. (VentureBeat)
2. Google Wants to Bring Augmented Reality to the Masses 👓
Imagine being able to walk through Paris and museums or being in Rome, Italy, and realizing that you are speaking Italian. Google has been busy at work designing the future, and their latest project might be what we've been waiting for. The giant is almost ready to take its augmented-reality glasses to the streets starting next month. (The Verge)
3. Tracking, freezing, and seizing stolen cryptocurrency.
With the number of crypto hacks increasing, governments are also increasing their efforts to find and seize the stolen money before it disappears forever. (MIT)
