Why The Future Of Innovation Is Simulation

The result is now clear to just about everyone on the planet.  The smartest guys in the room were no match for terabytes of data and smart algorithms.  There is no one “theory of the case” anymore, but thousands of them, being run constantly.  The point isn’t to be right, but to become less wrong over time.

Eric Bonabeau's team at Icosystems have helped pioneer commercial application of agent based modelling applications. It's nice to see them get some recognition in the Forbes article. However the article itself would have been much stronger if it had opened its scope and mentioned other teams such as Argonne National Labs (Repast), George Mason University (Mason), Uri Wilensky and the CCL team at NorthWestern (NetLogo). Technical University of Berlin/Federal Institute Zurich and Senozon (Matsim) amongst many others. All these teams have built platforms that are slowly but surely moving agent based simulation from academic theory to important real world applications and adoption. Nevertheless - good article and nice to see this being covered by the wider press.

When the Thomas Edison was asked about success amidst failure, he said that “If I find 10,000 ways something won’t work, I haven’t failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.”


If Thomas Edison was alive today he would say that innovation is 1% inspiration and 99% simulation (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

With that kind of dedication, it’s no wonder that Edison  was awarded over 1000 patents, including the light bulb, the phonograph and the motion picture camera, making him one of the most prolific inventors in history.

It also becomes clear why he regarded success as “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.”  Failing 10,000 times is a physical and mental undertaking that far exceeds most people’s endurance.  Today, however, a new breed of innovators are outsourcing failure to computer simulations and it’s changing everything we thought we knew about business strategy.

Religious people are less intelligent than atheists, according to analysis of scores of scientific studies stretching back over decades

Religious people are less intelligent than atheists, according to analysis of scores of scientific studies stretching back over decades | Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it
A new review of 63 scientific studies stretching back over decades has concluded that religious people are less intelligent than non-believers.

-

A new review of 63 scientific studies stretching back over decades has concluded that religious people are less intelligent than non-believers.

A piece of University of Rochester analysis, led by Professor Miron Zuckerman, found “a reliable negative relation between intelligence and religiosity” in 53 out of 63 studies.

According to the study entitled, 'The Relation Between Intelligence and Religiosity: A Meta-Analysis and Some Proposed Explanations', published in the 'Personality and Social Psychology Review', even during early years the more intelligent a child is the more likely it would be to turn away from religion.

In old age above average intelligence people are less likely to believe, the researchers also found.

One of the studies used in Zuckerman's paper was a life-long analysis of the beliefs of 1,500 gifted children with with IQs over 135.

This kind of makes me laugh due to the fact the I am a strong atheist and a firm believer of science. I think it's perfectly fine to have religion and that doesn't change my point of view on people but it does explain why politicians don't has common sense. But it amazes me that religion affected intelligence. I mean many people that are religious are geniuses and this article is not saying that religious people are dumb or mentally retarded, it is just saying that they tend to be lower than people who don't have a god to believe in. I guess you truly do learn something new everyday.

Rationally Speaking: Hanna Arendt: the movie, the philosopher

Rationally Speaking: Hanna Arendt: the movie, the philosopher | Artificial Intelligence | Scoop.it

I recently saw Hannah Arendt, a rare movie whose protagonist is a philosopher. And an exceedingly well done movie, it is. I was lucky enough to go to the US premier of it, held at Film Forum in New York, and which was attended by the director, Margarethe von Trotta, the leading actress, Barbara Sukowa, the screenwriter, Pamela Katz, and the main supporting actress, Janet McTeer. This sort of thing is a major reason I love living in New York.

The movie centers around a crucial period of Arendt’s career, when she covered the trial of former nazi officer Adolph Eichmann in Jerusalem, on behalf of the New Yorker magazine. The result was a series of five articles that were then collected in a highly influential book, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil. Yes, you’ve heard the phrase before, and that’s where it comes from.

Arendt was already famous at the time, a leading faculty member at the New School in New York, and the author of The Origins of Totalitarianism, which is why the notoriously picky New Yorker immediately accepted her offer to cover the Eichmann trial. Little did they know about the fury and heated controversy that Arendt’s writing would soon generate, a controversy that alienated her from some of her closest friends and family members, though it also made her the talk of the town and the idol of her students.

As I said, the movie is well worth watching because of the superb screenwriting, directing and acting, and von Trotta stressed — during the q&a following the first screening — that it is based on a painstaking analysis of the available documents, including letters from Arendt to her friends and family. Indeed, Arendt doesn’t come across as an unquestionable hero in the film. She was a complex woman and superb intellectual, embodying plenty of contradictions (she was the lover of famous philosopher, and nazi sympathizer, Martin Heidegger), and who had suffered personally at the hands of the nazis (she fled Germany, was interned in a camp in France, escaped and moved to the US).
