Great summary! Forgive the plug, but for those interested in the Future of Learning Platforms — that is the theme of our next USciences eLearning 3.0 Conference. It’s also the title of our Keynote talk by Phil Hill. Have a look at https://www.usciences.edu/eLearningConference.
True AI has been around the corner for decades and has gotten a bad rap — robots taking over the world and enslaving us, etc. I agree that the “Intelligence” in AI is misleading and for reasons you mention it may never reach that pinnacle. What we really have today is machine learning which gives us an AI that is really an ‘idiot savant’ tool that will help to amplify our own human intelligence.
Dr. Estima, I like your article and plan to try sleeping on my stomach tonight! Ever since I’ve been in my 60’s, I’ve wakened with a dry mouth and chapped lips as you say, since I usually sleep on my back. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Exactly. Maybe the IBS and microbiome problems ARE from all the sugars in poor diets that encourage growth of bad gut bacteria that weaken the gut barriers and let in those “harmless” lectins.
Misleading. Not having nutrients is not the real issue. I’d say that highly processed grains and sugars are bad because they raise insulin levels and put eaters on a vicious cycle of bouncing blood sugar levels causing hunger, craving and storing calories as fat.
Tom, thanks for your response. I was also a bit confused about the typography. Some text was indented and italicized, some not. Some with the quote ‘bar’ some not. Am I missing something? Just visual interest?
