La nouvelle équipe de pompeurs d’air qui file tout de suite à Pointe Bénédicte!

En fin d’après-midi, une première tentative est faite pour livrer le concasseur par portière. Celle-ci est un simple radeau tiré par bateau à moteur. Pour l’utiliser, il faut que la mer soit très calme.

Mais la charge remonte, ce ne sera pas pour ce premier jour!

Les nouveaux hivernant·es s’installent dans les chambres que nous leur avons préparé. Et il faut vite se coucher car le lendemain, nous nous levons à 5h. Le ravitaillement des cabanes s’enchaînent : Entrecasteaux, pour Guillaume et Florian, puis Del Cano, pour Antoine et moi.

“It begins by weaving a trap out of itself. It threads the hyphae of its mycelium out and then back in, forming a living loop that repeats to form a net. But a net is only one part of a trap–the other part is the lure. The fungi can find nematodes by following traces of their pheromones like they’re breadcrumbs. And more nefariously, they can mimic the smell of certain food cues to draw the worm in, like a siren working through scent instead of song. The nematode has no reason to suspect anything, even as it swims closer and closer and eventually through the fungal rings. But as it does, the movement of worm and water triggers the rings to constrict. The worm is trapped, but the worst is still yet to come.”

Richard Feynman: Can Machines Think?

아, 유쾌하고 지적인 과학자였던 파인만 옹. 다 보진 않았는데 위 질문에 대한 내 생각과 파인만의 생각은 비슷한 듯.

난 인공지능(AI) 로봇이 실제로 인간의 생활을 간섭하는 시대가 올 거라 생각하지 않는 쪽인데. 아무래도 그들은 그저 기계에 그칠 뿐이다. 아무리 똑똑한 기계(로봇)라도 가르치는 일, 작가처럼 글쓰는 일, 수학문제를 100퍼센트의 확률로 완벽히 푸는 일 따윈 하지 못한다.

그런 면에서 AI를 다룬 SF(Science Fiction) 영화를 크게 감명 깊게 보진 않는 편. ‘아이, 로봇(I, Robot)’ 같은 작품처럼. 유일하게 스티븐 스필버그 감독의 '에이 아이(A.I.)'만 진짜 가슴 사무치게 본 기억이.

“I wish that I could put in words my first impressions of this country. In the Arabian Tales I read how Genie transported people into a land of dreams to live through delightful adventures. My case was just the reverse. The Genie had carried me from a world of dreams into one of realities. What I had left was beautiful, artistic and fascinating in everyway; what I saw here was machined, rough and unattractive. A burly policeman was twirling his stick which looked to me as big as a log. I approached him politely with the request to direct me. “Six blocks down, then to the left,” he said, with murder in his eyes. “Is this America?” I ask myself in painful surprise. “It is a century behind European in civilization.” When I went abroad in 1889–five years having elapsed since my arrival here–I became convinced that it was more than 100 years AHEAD of Europe and nothing has happened to this day to change my opinion.“

–Nikola Tesla

You like to make me think. I spent all day thinking about it, and it’s a tricky question. At the end, this is my conclusion.

Death is inevitable, even if human try to avoid it, there’s nothing that will live forever. So, for me, it’s worse being forgotten.

Now, if we talk about being forgotten, we have two options, being forgotten while you are alive or once you are death. The first option is sad because it can lead to the death of someone (depression) or diminish someone’s work, and the second one means that people want to cover up stuff. I’m going to give an example for each.
- Forgotten while alive: Francis Mojica he is a Spanish scientist that is considered the father of the newest technique to edit the genome. (CRISPR/Cas9, he’s the one to discover it). Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna have won the Nobel of chemistry for the application of this technology. People usually forget this.
- Forgotten while death: several women, like the women in Hidden figures Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan or Mary Jackson.

In my opinion the second option is worse because they are erasing you and your identity. Meanwhile, in the first one is either you fight back or you allow it to happen. If you allow yourself to be forgotten is your own fault.

So, this is my thoughts about this topic. Sorry if it has become a weird thing, but gave me too much to think of this. I had said it before, if you let me think, my mind goes to strange places and do stuff like this.
