We are Poised to Democratize the Noosphere.
As creatures emerge from the general biological stew, each develops some level of communication among conspecifics. We, people, can look at this as the combined but separate consciousness that we carry around. The connections come from interacting with each other and exchanging information. This collective is the noosphere humans inhabit. Every creature would have its own. All noospheres are built on biology, until now.

Detecting Mental Illness on Social Media with AI
Researchers from Dartmouth can now use AI to analyze a person’s social media history to determine the likelihood of having a mental illness. All of our insightful, angry, funny and/or pointless social media comments are public information, easily obtained, and in the hands of artificial intelligence, can paint a sorely needed picture of our mental health. 3 researchers from Dartmouth College developed a new AI model that can aggregate, label, analyze, and find trends in our post history. The researchers believe their model can discern the emotion of a post and then use this to chart how our emotions fluctuate over time. The unique pattern that emerges can then be compared to the well-known patterns for bipolar, major depressive, and various anxiety disorders, providing a new tool for a world in desperate need of mental health solutions.

An Unpopular Opinion on How Writing Will Change Over the Next Year
From quill and ink to AI-generated articles, writing has changed incredibly over the span of time. Even when I consider the time that I've been a writer, from 6th grade to today, it boggles the mind. I can recall a pencil, a big fat eraser, and a small stack of wide-ruled paper in my earliest memories. Those were my tools, and they suited me well.
