All involved in parenting and education should pay heed.

LOL, it’s beating me. But one is almost never “sufficiently” certain that it’s not a coincidence. I will try to figure out whether it’s a five-sigma lead already.

“Digital Dementia”, a term coined by top German neuroscientist in his 2012 book of the same name, is a term used to describe how overuse of digital technology is resulting in the breakdown of cognitive abilities in a way that is more commonly seen in people who have suffered a head injury or psychiatric illness.


Was it cherished memories of a lover, eh?

This morning the chemical boys have apparently identified another associated plaque maker.

The third argument, , states that both the computer’s and human’s move histories must match. The argument can be changed to 1 to only look at the human’s history (i.e., assuming that the human is only influenced by what they did before), or 2, to look only at column 2, which is the computer’s history (i.e., assuming that the human mostly responds to what the computer did before, regardless of what they did, and hence whether they won or lost).


She pauses outside New College.

“A growing number of adults, too, are susceptible to constant connection and overuse of technology which can lead to lateralization of brain function which means the brain suffers imbalance.” you know that lateralization is normal phenomena and not a damage? second internet increase spatial ability and this is right hemshire so please dont spread quackery.

You've got to be on constant guard.

“Use Your Head. Retrieve information from your brain organically – rather than automatically turning to Google to look up that actress you can’t remember immediately. Sit there and concentrate until you can recall it.” to find information you also need use brain.

This is very interesting and concerning also. Great informative post.

For example, in this case we find what the human typically chose Rock after having previously chosen Rock, regardless of what the computer did each time.

"What am I speaking about?" she says to herself.

where 1 represents rock, 2 paper, and 3 scissors. This is the optimal solution; however you play, you should win a similar number of games as the computer, and your win rate will jitter around zero.

"Ah, consciousness ­ a bit academic, eh?"

“Individuals who rely heavily on technology may suffer deterioration in cerebral performance such as short term memory dysfunction. While many of us grew up remembering phone numbers and other key information simply by memorizing it, most kids today have grown up not needing to remember things like phone numbers because we have devices that do it for us.” interesting, because internet is the biggest source of information and maybe we dont need meorizing numbers but have increased information consumption which exercise memory.

And choose the next move that would beat this prediction:

Digital dementia is very real. Many of my students who are overly dependent on the internet are incapable of understanding complex concepts. Their academic writing skills not only display a poor command of language, but also a lack of critical reflection, being able to establish coherent causal and conditional relationships and to specify details. The internet conditions us to take in information in small chunks; we remember where to find things but we do not remember what they were. In a nutshell, we externalize our knowledge construction. This impairs working memory as well as executive functions. Digital dementia is also reinforced by non-digital factors such as traditional school systems that rely on rote learning, so there are cultural factors to be taken into consideration too.
