Mind Mapping Software – Create online Mind Maps

Educate tomorrow’s thinkers today

To create mind maps, students explore information and decide for themselves what’s important and how it connects with what they already know. This is how they develop their critical thinking.

We built several features which will make it very easy for the professor and it’s students to use Mindomo in the classroom. Such features are: creating mind map assignments, setting up groups for students, accessing students’ maps, etc.

Use mind maps to understand facts, issues and ideas revolving around a central topic. Use concept maps to see how multiple concepts are connected. Use outlines to refine your maps and save them in a linear way.

It’s very simple to add and use Mindomo from the school’s Google Apps or Office365 account. Also, our LTI integrations provide a single click access to Mindomo from the most popular LMSs: Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, Desire2Learn, itslearning, Schoology, etc.

From all the mind mapping tools out there, we are the most focused on providing the best solution for teachers and students.

The ‘Presenter’ feature lets students turn their maps into slide-by-slide presentations. This way they can show others their thought process as they developed the maps.

iPad and Android native apps for mind mapping both online and offline while using a smooth, simplified interface.

Our playback mode lets you keep track of all the changes each student makes on a mind map: added topics, new connections, uploaded images and videos, etc.

Students can make their maps more engaging by searching web images directly from the map and adding them with just one click.

To explain certain topics better, add related videos from the web or audio record your explanation directly in the mind map.

To introduce students to mind mapping, use our predefined mind map templates or create your own. It will be easier for them to get familiar with mind maps.

Collaborative mind map assignments

Youll Probably Never Upload Your Mind Into A Computer – io9

Many futurists predict that one day we’ll upload our minds into computers, where we’ll romp around in virtual reality environments. That’s possible but there are still a number of thorny issues to consider. Here are eight reasons why your brain may never be digitized.

Indeed, this isnt just idle speculation. Many important thinkers have expressed their support of the possibility, including the renowned futurist Ray Kurzweil (author of How to Create a Mind), roboticist Hans Moravec, cognitive scientist Marvin Minsky, neuroscientist David Eagleman, and many others.

Skeptics, of course, relish the opportunity to debunk uploads. The claim that well be able to transfer our conscious thoughts to a computer, after all, is a rather extraordinary one.

But many of the standard counter-arguments tend to fall short. Typical complaints cite insufficient processing power, inadequate storage space, or the fear that the supercomputers will be slow, unstable and prone to catastrophic failures concerns that certainly dont appear intractable given the onslaught of Moores Law and the potential for megascale computation. Another popular objection is that the mind cannot exist without a body. But an uploaded mind could be endowed with a simulated body and placed in a simulated world.

To be fair, however, there are a number of genuine scientific, philosophical, ethical, and even security concerns that could significantly limit or even prevent consciousness uploads from ever happening. Here are eight of the most serious.

Proponents of mind uploading tend to argue that the brain is a Turing Machine the idea that organic minds are nothing more than classical information-processors. Its an assumption derived from the strong physical Church-Turing thesis, and one that now drives much of cognitive science.

But not everyone believes the brain/computer analogy works. Speaking recently at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Boston, neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis said that, The brain is not computable and no engineering can reproduce it. He referred to the idea of uploads as bunk, saying that itll never happen and that [t]here are a lot of people selling the idea that you can mimic the brain with a computer. Nicolelis argues that human consciousness cant be replicated in silicon because most of its important features are the result of unpredictable, nonlinear interactions among billions of cells.

You cant predict whether the stock market will go up or down because you cant compute it, he said. You could have all the computer chips ever in the world and you wont create a consciousness. Image credit: Jeff Cameron Collingwood/Shutterstock.

The computability of the brain aside, we may never be able to explain how and why we have qualia, or whats called phenomenal experience.

According to David Chalmers the philosopher of mind who came up with the term hard problem well likely solve the easy problems of human cognition, like how we focus our attention, recall a memory, discriminate, and process information. But explaining how incoming sensations get translated into subjective feelings like the experience of color, taste, or the pleasurable sound of music is proving to be much more difficult. Moreover, were still not entirely sure why we even have consciousness, and why were not just philosophical zombies hypothetical beings who act and respond as if theyre conscious, but have no internal mental states.

In his paper, Facing Up to the Problem of Consciousness, Chalmers writes:

How can we explain why there is something it is like to entertain a mental image, or to experience an emotion? It is widely agreed that experience arises from a physical basis, but we have no good explanation of why and how it so arises. Why should physical processing give rise to a rich inner life at all? It seems objectively unreasonable that it should, and yet it does.

If any problem qualifies as the problem of consciousness, argues Chalmers, it is this one. Image: blog.lib.umn.edu.

And even if we do figure out how the brain generates subjective experience, classical digital computers may never be able to support unitary phenomenal minds. This is whats referred to as the binding problem our inability to understand how a mind is able to segregate elements and combine problems as seamlessly as it does. Needless to say, we dont even know if a Turing Machine can even support these functions.

More specifically, we still need to figure out how our brains segregate elements in complex patterns, a process that allows us to distinguish them as discrete objects. The binding problem also describes the issue of how objects, like those in the background or in our peripheral experience or even something as abstract as emotions can still be combined into a unitary and coherent experience. As the cognitive neuroscientist Antti Revonsuo has said, Binding is thus seen as a problem of nding the mechanisms which map the objective physical entities in the external world into corresponding internal neural entities in the brain.

He continues:

No one knows how our organic brains perform this trick at least not yet or if digital computers will ever be capable of phenomenal binding. Image credit: agsandrew/Shutterstock.

Though still controversial, theres also the potential for panpsychism to be in effect. This is the notion that consciousness is a fundamental and irreducible feature of the cosmos. It might sound a bit New Agey, but its an idea thats steadily gaining currency (especially in consideration of our inability to solve the Hard Problem).

Panpsychists speculate that all parts of matter involve mind.

According to this view, the basis of consciousness can be found in an additional fundamental force of nature not unlike gravity or electromagnetism. This would be something like an elementary sentience or awareness. As Hameroff notes, “these components just are.” Likewise, David Chalmers has proposed a double-aspect theory in which information has both physical and experiential aspects.

Its quite possible that theres no digital or algorithmic equivalent to consciousness. Having consciousness arise in a classical Von Neumann architecture, therefore, may be as impossible as splitting an atom in a virtual environment by using ones and zeros.

Perhaps even more controversial is the suggestion that consciousness lies somewhere outside the brain, perhaps as some ethereal soul or spirit.

Consequently, some proponents of dualism (or even vitalism) suggest that consciousness lies outside knowable science.

Needless to say, if our minds are located somewhere outside our bodies like in a vat somewhere, or oddly enough, in a simulation (a la The Matrix) our chances of uploading ourselves are slim to none.

Philosophical and scientific concerns aside, there may also be some moral reasons to forego the project. If were going to develop upload technologies, were going to have to conduct some rather invasive experiments, both on animals and humans. The potential for abuse is significant.

Uploading schemas typically describe the scanning and mapping of an individuals brain, or serial sectioning. While a test subject, like a mouse or monkey, could be placed under a general anesthetic, it will eventually have to be re-animated in digital substrate. Once this happens, well likely have no conception of its internal, subjective experience. Its brain could be completely mangled, resulting terrible psychological or physical anguish. Its reasonable to assume that our early uploading efforts will be far from perfect, and potentially cruel.

And when it comes time for the first human to be uploaded, there could be serious ethical and legal issues to consider especially considering that were talking about the re-location of a living, rights-bearing human being. Image credit: K. Zhuang.

Which leads to the next point, that of post-upload skepticism. A person can never really be sure they created a sentient copy of themselves. This is the continuity of consciousness problem the uncertainty well have that, instead of moving our minds, we simply copied ourselves instead.

Because we cant measure for consciousness either qualitatively or quantitatively uploading will require a tremendous leap of faith a leap that could lead to complete oblivion (e.g. a philosophical zombie), or something completely unexpected. And relying on the advice from uploaded beings wont help either (Come on in, the waters fine…).

In an email to me, philosopher David Pearce put it this way:

In other words, the quality of conscious experience in digital substrate could be far removed from that experienced by an analog consciousness. Image: Rikomatic.

Once our minds are uploaded, theyll be physically and inextricably connected to the larger computational superstructure. By consequence, uploaded brains will be perpetually vulnerable to malicious attacks and other unwanted intrusions.

To avoid this, each uploaded person will have to set-up a personal firewall to prevent themselves from being re-programmed, spied upon, damaged, exploited, deleted, or copied against their will. These threats could come from other uploads, rogue AI, malicious scripts, or even the authorities in power (e.g. as a means to instill order and control).

Indeed, as we know all too well today, even the tightest security measures can’t prevent the most sophisticated attacks; an uploaded mind can never be sure its safe.

Mind of a Worm Uploaded to a LEGO Robot to Make the …

Ashley Allen / 10 months ago

In a breakthrough for artificial intelligence research, a digital clone of the mind of a roundworm (C. Elegans) has been uploaded into a robotic body made from LEGO, as part of the Open Worm Project.

Once the software facsimile of the worm brain was integrated into the LEGO robot it, with no additional programming, exhibited behaviour consistent with the C. Elegans species, avoiding obstacles and attracted by food. The robot carries sensors that imitate the senses of a roundworm, bridged by software modelled on a worms nervous system.

Stephen Larson, the projects co-ordinator, told US news network CNN, Weve been working on it for four years and while we have a lot more to achieve its been the most surprising project Ive been involved in. Its certainly exceeded my expectations.

The research teams says that it will take some time for the robot to learn to avoid predators or search for a mate, but that the progress made so far bodes well for the future.

We definitely have further to go, but I think what captures peoples imagination is how much information we have managed to put together, said Larson.

Living forever as robot? Prototype lets humans upload …

An Artificial Intelligence pioneer is embracing the controversial idea of uploading the memories, thoughts and feelings of a living person into a computer to create a Mind Clone or second self. The prototype for this new self is called Bina-48.

Entrepreneur Martine Rothblatt has created a new robotic head that she hopes, one day in the future, humans will be able to upload their minds into. Bina-48 is named after Rothblatts real-life wife, Bina Aspen, and serves as a proof-of-concept for the futuristic idea. The robot version is designed to carry on a conversation, with scientists hoping that these mind clones could give human owners a sort of artificial afterlife.

I believe Mind Clones will be humanitys biggest invention. The market opportunity is limitless, Rothblatt told Bloomberg News. Ultimately just like we all want a smart phone, we all want a social media account we are all going to want a Mind Clone. It will make everything in our life more useful, more valuable. It will give us twice as much time to do everything.

Bena-48 was created five years ago as a digital replica uploaded with Bina Aspens thoughts, memories and feelings all of which were broken down into computer code to create a digital version of her consciousness. Created by Hanson Robotics, Bina-48 can engage in conversation, answer questions and even have spontaneous thoughts that are derived from multimedia data in a mindfile created by the real Bina.

A similar mindfile is created when a person interacts on Twitter or Facebook and shares photos or blogs regularly in essence, its a digital database of thoughts, memories, feelings and opinions. Mindware mimics the way the human brain supposedly organizes information, creates emotions and achieves self-awareness.

The proliferation of robots like Bina-48 may seem farfetched now, but Rothblatt is the woman who helped pioneered satellite radio as founder of Sirius and now oversees biotech innovation at United Therapeutics.

Mind Clone is a digital copy of your mind outside of your body, said Rothblatt. I think Mind Clone will look like an avatar on the screen, talking, instead of a robot version. Mind Clones are 10-20 years away.

Am I talking about a law of physics here? Am I talking about defying gravity here? No. Am I talking about going faster than light? No. All I am doing here is talking about writing some good code.

Companies such as eterni.me, Gordon Bells MyLifeBits, and Terasems Lifenaut are all pursuing Mind Clone to help a persons personality, work and relationships survive after death.

Eterni.me is a proposed for-profit service that will reportedly offer immortality by creating a virtual YOU, an avatar that emulates your personality and can interact with, and offer information and advice to your family and friends, even after you pass away.

Welcome to PHPSimplicity.com

I actually posted two new tips (more like libraries, really). Check them out!

I’ve seen how a phar archive can be created and thought why don’t I make an application where the user can select the files, determine structure, set options and create the phar graphically by few clicks?

And so the idea of Pharchiver (Phar Archiver) was born and now I am working on this application and have created its website at: http://www.phpsimplicity.com/pharchiver

I developed Pharchiver with C# and .NET 2.0 with the target OS in mind to be Windows. However, I’ve tested compiling the project in Mono and it worked just fine! So that means it will work on Linux, Mac and of course Windows.

Oh, did I mention that it will be free?

still wonderig wether or not PHP/MySQL is involved? you will be shocked!

Youll Probably Never Upload Your Mind Into A Computer

Many futurists predict that one day we’ll upload our minds into computers, where we’ll romp around in virtual reality environments. That’s possible but there are still a number of thorny issues to consider. Here are eight reasons why your brain may never be digitized.

Indeed, this isnt just idle speculation. Many important thinkers have expressed their support of the possibility, including the renowned futurist Ray Kurzweil (author of How to Create a Mind), roboticist Hans Moravec, cognitive scientist Marvin Minsky, neuroscientist David Eagleman, and many others.

Skeptics, of course, relish the opportunity to debunk uploads. The claim that well be able to transfer our conscious thoughts to a computer, after all, is a rather extraordinary one.

But many of the standard counter-arguments tend to fall short. Typical complaints cite insufficient processing power, inadequate storage space, or the fear that the supercomputers will be slow, unstable and prone to catastrophic failures concerns that certainly dont appear intractable given the onslaught of Moores Law and the potential for megascale computation. Another popular objection is that the mind cannot exist without a body. But an uploaded mind could be endowed with a simulated body and placed in a simulated world.

To be fair, however, there are a number of genuine scientific, philosophical, ethical, and even security concerns that could significantly limit or even prevent consciousness uploads from ever happening. Here are eight of the most serious.

Proponents of mind uploading tend to argue that the brain is a Turing Machine the idea that organic minds are nothing more than classical information-processors. Its an assumption derived from the strong physical Church-Turing thesis, and one that now drives much of cognitive science.

But not everyone believes the brain/computer analogy works. Speaking recently at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Boston, neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis said that, The brain is not computable and no engineering can reproduce it. He referred to the idea of uploads as bunk, saying that itll never happen and that [t]here are a lot of people selling the idea that you can mimic the brain with a computer. Nicolelis argues that human consciousness cant be replicated in silicon because most of its important features are the result of unpredictable, nonlinear interactions among billions of cells.

You cant predict whether the stock market will go up or down because you cant compute it, he said. You could have all the computer chips ever in the world and you wont create a consciousness. Image credit: Jeff Cameron Collingwood/Shutterstock.

The computability of the brain aside, we may never be able to explain how and why we have qualia, or whats called phenomenal experience.

According to David Chalmers the philosopher of mind who came up with the term hard problem well likely solve the easy problems of human cognition, like how we focus our attention, recall a memory, discriminate, and process information. But explaining how incoming sensations get translated into subjective feelings like the experience of color, taste, or the pleasurable sound of music is proving to be much more difficult. Moreover, were still not entirely sure why we even have consciousness, and why were not just philosophical zombies hypothetical beings who act and respond as if theyre conscious, but have no internal mental states.

In his paper, Facing Up to the Problem of Consciousness, Chalmers writes:

How can we explain why there is something it is like to entertain a mental image, or to experience an emotion? It is widely agreed that experience arises from a physical basis, but we have no good explanation of why and how it so arises. Why should physical processing give rise to a rich inner life at all? It seems objectively unreasonable that it should, and yet it does.

If any problem qualifies as the problem of consciousness, argues Chalmers, it is this one. Image: blog.lib.umn.edu.

And even if we do figure out how the brain generates subjective experience, classical digital computers may never be able to support unitary phenomenal minds. This is whats referred to as the binding problem our inability to understand how a mind is able to segregate elements and combine problems as seamlessly as it does. Needless to say, we dont even know if a Turing Machine can even support these functions.

More specifically, we still need to figure out how our brains segregate elements in complex patterns, a process that allows us to distinguish them as discrete objects. The binding problem also describes the issue of how objects, like those in the background or in our peripheral experience or even something as abstract as emotions can still be combined into a unitary and coherent experience. As the cognitive neuroscientist Antti Revonsuo has said, Binding is thus seen as a problem of nding the mechanisms which map the objective physical entities in the external world into corresponding internal neural entities in the brain.

He continues:

No one knows how our organic brains perform this trick at least not yet or if digital computers will ever be capable of phenomenal binding. Image credit: agsandrew/Shutterstock.

Though still controversial, theres also the potential for panpsychism to be in effect. This is the notion that consciousness is a fundamental and irreducible feature of the cosmos. It might sound a bit New Agey, but its an idea thats steadily gaining currency (especially in consideration of our inability to solve the Hard Problem).

Panpsychists speculate that all parts of matter involve mind. Neuroscientist Stuart Hameroff has suggested that consciousness is related to a fundamental component of physical reality components that are akin to phenomenon like mass, spin or charge. According to this view, the basis of consciousness can be found in an additional fundamental force of nature not unlike gravity or electromagnetism. This would be something like an elementary sentience or awareness. As Hameroff notes, “these components just are.” Likewise, David Chalmers has proposed a double-aspect theory in which information has both physical and experiential aspects. Panpsychism has also attracted the attention of quantum physicists (who speculate about potential quantum aspects of consciousness given our presence in an Everett Universe), and physicalists like Galen Strawson (who argues that mental/experiential is physical).

Why this presents a problem to mind uploading is that consciousness may not substrate neutral a central tenant of the Church-Turing Hypothesis but is in fact dependent on specific physical/material configurations. Its quite possible that theres no digital or algorithmic equivalent to consciousness. Having consciousness arise in a classical Von Neumann architecture, therefore, may be as impossible as splitting an atom in a virtual environment by using ones and zeros. Image credit: agsandrew/Shutterstock.

Perhaps even more controversial is the suggestion that consciousness lies somewhere outside the brain, perhaps as some ethereal soul or spirit. Its an idea thats primarily associated with Rene Descartes, the 17th century philosopher who speculated that the mind is a nonphysical substance (as opposed to physicalist interpretations of mind and consciousness). Consequently, some proponents of dualism (or even vitalism) suggest that consciousness lies outside knowable science.

Needless to say, if our minds are located somewhere outside our bodies like in a vat somewhere, or oddly enough, in a simulation (a la The Matrix) our chances of uploading ourselves are slim to none.

Philosophical and scientific concerns aside, there may also be some moral reasons to forego the project. If were going to develop upload technologies, were going to have to conduct some rather invasive experiments, both on animals and humans. The potential for abuse is significant.

Uploading schemas typically describe the scanning and mapping of an individuals brain, or serial sectioning. While a test subject, like a mouse or monkey, could be placed under a general anesthetic, it will eventually have to be re-animated in digital substrate. Once this happens, well likely have no conception of its internal, subjective experience. Its brain could be completely mangled, resulting terrible psychological or physical anguish. Its reasonable to assume that our early uploading efforts will be far from perfect, and potentially cruel.

And when it comes time for the first human to be uploaded, there could be serious ethical and legal issues to consider especially considering that were talking about the re-location of a living, rights-bearing human being. Image credit: K. Zhuang.

Which leads to the next point, that of post-upload skepticism. A person can never really be sure they created a sentient copy of themselves. This is the continuity of consciousness problem the uncertainty well have that, instead of moving our minds, we simply copied ourselves instead.

Because we cant measure for consciousness either qualitatively or quantitatively uploading will require a tremendous leap of faith a leap that could lead to complete oblivion (e.g. a philosophical zombie), or something completely unexpected. And relying on the advice from uploaded beings wont help either (Come on in, the waters fine…).

In an email to me, philosopher David Pearce put it this way:

In other words, the quality of conscious experience in digital substrate could be far removed from that experienced by an analog consciousness. Image: Rikomatic.

Once our minds are uploaded, theyll be physically and inextricably connected to the larger computational superstructure. By consequence, uploaded brains will be perpetually vulnerable to malicious attacks and other unwanted intrusions.

To avoid this, each uploaded person will have to set-up a personal firewall to prevent themselves from being re-programmed, spied upon, damaged, exploited, deleted, or copied against their will. These threats could come from other uploads, rogue AI, malicious scripts, or even the authorities in power (e.g. as a means to instill order and control).

Indeed, as we know all too well today, even the tightest security measures can’t prevent the most sophisticated attacks; an uploaded mind can never be sure its safe.

Mind Upload (The Power Series of Short Stories), Mark …

Thirty-five year-old former Marine Roy Michaelson is dying of cancer. Before he undergoes an experimental new surgery, having his mind uploaded into a computer, Roy promises his wife Carolyn that he will see her after the surgery. But when he wakes up, Carolyn is not there and his world is forever changed.

The Power Series of Short Stories is an ongoing collection of complete and individual short stories with a greater overall story arc. The Power Series is set in the not-too-distant future, when technology has advanced to the point that legal and ethical questions abound. And much of the series explores such questions, while being wrapped in an exciting and thought provoking narrative.

The Power Series is not connected solely be theme, and it is not a retelling of a single event from different points of view (though that may occasionally happen). Characters and storylines often overlap to push the overall story arc along. The Power Series is a series, not a serial. Understanding one story is not dependent on reading previous stories. Because each short story in the series is an entity unto itself, they do not have to be read in any particular order. Reading a single Power Series story should leave you satisfied that the story was complete, but, like all good stories, it should leave you wanting more.

Mind uploading won’t lead to immortality – h+ Mediah+ Media

Uploading the content of ones mind, including ones personality, memories and emotions, into a computer may one day be possible, but it wont transfer our biological consciousness and wont make us immortal.

Uploading ones mind into a computer, a concept popularized by the 2014 movie Transcendence starring Johnny Depp, is likely to become at least partially possible, but wont lead to immortality. Majorobjectionshave been raised regarding the feasibility of mind uploading. Even if we could surpass every technical obstacle and successfully copy the totality of ones mind, emotions, memories, personality and intellect into a machine, that would be just that: a copy, which itself can be copied again and again on various computers.

It is not possible to transfer our consciousness into a computer, even if (or when) computers achieve consciousness of their own. The best analogy to understand that is cloning. Identical twins are an example of human clones that already live among us. Identical twins share the same DNA, yet nobody would argue that they also share a single consciousness.

Once we understand the brain well enough to reproduce all neural connections electronically, all we will be able to do is run a faithful simulation of our brain on a computer. Even if that simulation happens to have a consciousness of its own, it will never be our own biological consciousness.

It will be easy to prove that hypothesis once the technology becomes available. Unlike Johnny Depp in Transcendance, we dont have to die to upload our mind to one or several computers. Doing so wont deprive us of our biological consciousness. It will just be like having a mental clone of ourself, but we will never feel like we are inside the computer, without itaffecting who we are.

Since mind uploading wont preserve our self-awareness, the feeling that we are ourself and not someone else, it wont lead to immortality. Well still be bound to our bodies, but life expectancy for transhumanists and cybernetic humans will be considerably extended.

Immortality is a confusing term since it implies living forever, which is impossible since nothing is eternal in our universe. At best it can mean greatly extended longevity, living for several hundreds or thousands years, assuming that nothing kills us before. Science will slow down, stop and even reverse the aging process, enabling us to live healthily for a very long time by todays standards. This is known as negligible senescence. However that has nothing to do with actual immortality. Cybernetic humans with robotic limbs and respirocytes will still die in accidents or wars.
