The Exceptional Company: Defying Gravity

What makes exceptional companies 'exceptional'? Find out what exceptional companies and exceptional glider pilots have in common as Deloitte's Michael Raynor...

After looking at more than 25,000 companies from hundreds of industries covering 45 years, Michael E. Raynor and Mumtaz Ahmed uncovered 344 companies that qualified as statistically “exceptional.” What did they all have in common? They followed three rules -- and they're rules anyone in any industry can follow. Listen to co-author Michael Raynor explain The Three Rules, then explore them for yourself.

Biology Confronts Data Complexity

Biology Confronts Data Complexity | Market Research | Scoop.it

New technologies have launched the life sciences into the age of big data. Biologists must now make sense of their informational windfall.

Tratar la vida como un cumulo de datos... qué se yo... estamos yendo a eso.

tatiyana fuentes's curator insight, October 24, 2013 8:49 AM

It was difficult to find sequence the human genome, but now it’s comparatively simple to compare genomes of the microorganisms living in our bodies, the ocean, the soil, and everywhere because of the new technologies. Life scientists are embarking on countless other big data projects, including efforts to analyze the genomes of many cancers, to map the human brain, and to develop better biofuels and other crops. Compared to fields like physics, astronomy and computer science that have been dealing with the challenges of massive datasets for decades, the big data revolution in biology has also been quick, leaving little time to adapt. Biologists must overcome a number of hurdles, from storing and moving data to integrating and analyzing it, which will require a substantial cultural shift.

India's Emu Ranching Bubble Bursts, With a Grim Aftermath

India's Emu Ranching Bubble Bursts, With a Grim Aftermath | Market Research | Scoop.it

Thinkcap Analytics:  In India’s countryside, where poor farmers must cope with droughts, floods, and other disasters, there’s a new scourge: the collapse of emu ranching. Native to Australia, the emu is a large, flightless bird that somewhat resembles its African cousin, the ostrich, and tastes (fans say) like beef. Farmers in Australia, the U.S., and other countries raise emus for their meat, eggs, and oil (rendered from their fat). About five years ago, Indian farmers started seeing these Australian fowl as their ticket to riches.

The Crystal Cell - turning coherent quantum fluctuations into electric energy

The Crystal Cell - turning coherent quantum fluctuations into electric energy | Market Research | Scoop.it

The Crystal Cell is a capacitor like device that generates a steady electric current.

 

Concerning its basic construction, the Crystal Cell is similar to an electrolytic capacitor which contains a solid polycrystalline silicate instead of an electrolyte.

 

The function of the Crystal Cell is related to a solar cell. Instead of sun light coherent quantum fluctuations are used to create a charge separation.

 

The emission free Crystal Cell can generate a direct electric current over an unknown period of time (since 1999).

 

Within the Crystal Cell processes play a role, which are similar to a hydropower plant. Just like a hydropower plant draws its energy from the flow of water the Crystal Cell draws its energy from an external source of energy.

 

Our hypothesis is, that the Crystal Cell extracts energy from the quantum vacuum. The power output is today at (10mW/kg/25°C).

For those who think free energy is impossible, this is a tangible proof-of-principle that shows that electrical energy can indeed be extracted from an as-yet unacknowledged source...

Artificial Intelligence

"The daily grinding of evolution, as accelerated by technology, churns out more and more complex organisms, with higher rates of energy use, and with increasing specialization. Minds are the ideal way to express complexity, energy density, increasing specialization, expanding diversity -- all in one system. Mindedness is what evolution produces. Mindedness is what technology wants, too." Kevin Kelly

Join Jason Silva every week as he freestyles his way into the complex systems of society, technology and human existence and discusses the truth and beauty of science in a form of existential jazz. New episodes every Tuesday.
