Scientists: Social Media Is Not Necessarily a Waste of Time

Scientists: Social Media Is Not Necessarily a Waste of Time | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
When it comes to social media, there seem to be two schools of thought in the science/research community. One posits that spending time on social media can be extremely useful. The other posits that spending time on social media is stupid.

Subset Sum Automata

Subset Sum Automata | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Subset sum automata by Tom Quinn @algoritmic are a family of cellular automata based on the subset sum problem. They're on a square grid like Conway's Game of Life, but instead of each cell being just on or off, the state is a nonnegative integer. Follow the link to read more.

You Do Not Think Alone

You Do Not Think Alone | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it
“The Thinker,” Auguste Rodin’s bronze sculpture, has become a visual cliché, a common representation of deep thought — a figure, gazing down, chin on hand, completely alone. This is utterly misleading, according to the authors of “The Knowledge Illusion,” which carries the subtitle: “Why We Never Think Alone.” Steven Sloman, a professor at Brown University, and Philip Fernbach, a professor at the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business, argue that our intelligence depends on the people and things that surround us, and to a degree we rarely recognize. Knowledge, they say, is a community effort. Sloman answered questions from Mind Matters editor Gareth Cook.
