Human evolution and computerized dating
At the start of the simulation, a biped robot controlled by a computationally evolved brain stands upright on a 16 meter by 16 meter surface.The simulation proceeds until the robot falls or until 15 seconds have elapsed.However, that 18,000-year-old date was based on only a geological analysis of the fossils' surroundings and not on direct analysis of the bones themselves.And the complexity of the cave's geology initially misled the scientists, says Matthew Tocheri, a paleoanthropologist at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, and a member of the discovery team.Liang Bua is a cathedral-like cave with a high domed ceiling.The original excavations, conducted from 2001 to 2004, dug into four regions of the cave, including a couple of sites along its eastern wall, where some fossils were found.“In my opinion, this paper drives the final nail in the coffin” of that hypothesis.
"Focused destruction can lead to surprising outcomes," said Miikkulainen, a professor of computer science at UT Austin.In 2003, scientists made a startling find in a remote cave on the Indonesian island of Flores: The skull and skeleton of an adult female hominin, a group consisting of modern humans and extinct human species, who stood only about a meter tall.That discovery sparked a fierce debate about whether the hominin—officially dubbed but often called the “hobbit”—was a separate species or a diseased modern human. Even if our reliance on technology gets to the point where we barely use our bodies in 1,000-100,000 years, we won't change THAT much, if at all in the first place.Humans from 100,000 years ago looked basically the same as us, as modern humans have existed for 200,000 years. I can't remember if I got the number right) I also don't understand why we would de-evolve after reaching our peak, unless we were forced to adapt after some sort of change in climate or something The only thing that could change in that small amount of time is that the average height of humans will become slightly higher, history suggests that.
