The end of Moore's law: Living without an exponential increase in the efficiency of computational facilities

Since more than 50 years scientific and nonscientific communities are accustomed to computational facilities, which increase steadily in speed and efficiency of calculations, in particular in processor performance, memory size, and storage capacity. Mitchell Waldrop analyzes the current situation in the chip producing industry and predicts the end of Moore's prophecy of an exponential growth in computational capacities [1]. Here, an attempt is made to view with the eyes of a user the spectacular development of computers, its benefits for mathematics, science, and engineering as well as the possible consequences of its end.

2016 Report | One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence (AI100)

2016 Report | One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence (AI100) | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

This report is the first in a series to be issued at regular intervals as a part of the One Hundred Year Study on Artificial Intelligence (AI100). Starting from a charge given by the AI100 Standing Committee to consider the likely influences of AI in a typical North American city by the year 2030, the 2015 Study Panel, comprising experts in AI and other relevant areas focused their attention on eight domains they considered most salient: transportation; service robots; healthcare; education; low-resource communities; public safety and security; employment and workplace; and entertainment. In each of these domains, the report both reflects on progress in the past fifteen years and anticipates developments in the coming fifteen years.

Information leverage in interconnected ecosystems: Overcoming the curse of dimensionality

In ecological analysis, complexity has been regarded as an obstacle to overcome. Here we present a straightforward approach for addressing complexity in dynamic interconnected systems. We show that complexity, in the form of multiple interacting components, can actually be an asset for studying natural systems from temporal data. The central idea is that multidimensional time series enable system dynamics to be reconstructed from multiple viewpoints, and these viewpoints can be combined into a single model. We show how our approach, multiview embedding (MVE), can improve forecasts for simulated ecosystems and a mesocosm experiment. By leveraging complexity, MVE is particularly effective for overcoming the limitations of short and noisy time series and should be highly relevant for many areas of science.

Building Community Through Innovation: Pt. 1 – Disrupting Public Media – Medium

Building Community Through Innovation: Pt. 1 – Disrupting Public Media – Medium | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
The way causes are supported, brands are launched and innovations are scaled is evolving from a push to a collective build. Traditional models are no longer enough to yield results. This shift is led by vocal communities that are replacing passive audiences. Those organizations that fail to capture this momentum are destined to be left behind.

"Recognizing this shift, KQED’s audience-first strategy has been about pivoting from traditional audience development to a more active style of community engagement. Executing this strategy has meant identifying who these audiences are, creating relationships, and learning from them. Achieving these goals requires innovation, not only in thinking differently about audiences, but in applying new tools for conversing with and convening diverse communities.

Autonomous Tent - Luxury Tent Can Be Raised In Days and Leave Without a Trace - SERIOUS WONDER | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
When you think of a tent, you probably think of something that is large enough to temporarily shelter one or two people while camping out in the woods. When Autonomous Tent Co. thought of tents, they thought of a means of shelter that could accommodate a large group of people, furniture, etc. All of which can be built in only a few days and then seemingly vanish without a trace.

Where Is Earth In The Universe?

Where Is Earth In The Universe? | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Before the Laniakea Supercluster was outlined in 2014, most astronomers placed the Milky Way inside the Virgo Supercluster. The Laniakea Supercluster is much bigger, containing about 100,000 galaxies and spanning 520 million light-years. Its name is an homage to Polynesian explorers who navigated the Pacific ocean by looking at the stars, and means "immeasurable heaven" in Hawaiian. The definition of "supercluster" is an evolving one, however, and scientists think that our place in the universe may alter yet again as research continues to advance.

Satya Nadella is wrong about chatbots | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
At Microsoft’s recent Worldwide Partner Conference, CEO Satya Nadella laid out his vision for a world in which A.I.-powered chatbots “fundamentally revolutionize how computing is experienced by everybody.” Bots, according to Nadella, will become the next interface, shaping our interactions with the applications and devices we rely on. Of course, granting bots more control over our apps and devices naturally requires that we create rules to govern how they operate.

This 100-Year-Old To-Do List Hack Still Works Like A Charm

This 100-Year-Old To-Do List Hack Still Works Like A Charm | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

THE IVY LEE METHOD
During his 15 minutes with each executive, Lee explained his simple method for achieving peak productivity:

-At the end of each workday, write down the six most important things you need to accomplish tomorrow. Do not write down more than six tasks.
-Prioritize those six items in order of their true importance.
-When you arrive tomorrow, concentrate only on the first task.

-Work until the first task is finished before moving on to the second task.
-Approach the rest of your list in the same fashion. At the end of the day, move any unfinished items to a new list of six tasks for the following day.
-Repeat this process every working day.

I agree, this is really good advice.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, August 28, 9:40 PM

Aside from the word "hack" being the current most overused word on the planet, this reminds me of learning how to manage the "tyranny of the urgent." For all of us, there are too many tasks, too many urgent matters or emergencies which makes it even harder to prioritize each day's tasks. But that also reminds of a poster in a colleague's office: "The failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine." If only.

Victor Ventura's curator insight, September 5, 10:13 AM
Keeping it simple and planning to plan. Makes good sense to me.

Networks: An Economic Perspective

We discuss social network analysis from the perspective of economics. We organize the presentaion around the theme of externalities: the effects that one's behavior has on others' well-being. Externalities underlie the interdependencies that make networks interesting. We discuss network formation, as well as interactions between peoples' behaviors within a given network, and the implications in a variety of settings. Finally, we highlight some empirical challenges inherent in the statistical analysis of network-based data.

Research into 'materials that compute' advances as engineers demonstrate system performs pattern recognition

Research into 'materials that compute' advances as engineers demonstrate system performs pattern recognition | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
The potential to develop "materials that compute" has taken another leap at the University of Pittsburgh's Swanson School of Engineering, where researchers for the first time have demonstrated that the material can be designed to recognize simple patterns. This responsive, hybrid material, powered by its own chemical reactions, could one day be integrated into clothing and used to monitor the human body, or developed as a skin for "squishy" robots.

Building Community Through Innovation- Pt. 2 – Disrupting Public Media – Medium | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

"In part 1 of Building Community Through Innovation, we explored the collaboration between KQED Education, and Known, a Matter alum, in the design of KQED Teach, a series of online professional learning courses in digital media literacy skills and strategies for teachers. KQED Teach incorporates the ability for teachers to complete modules and lessons by posting to a shared community space. This community building concept is a major component of KQED’s audience-first strategy. In part 2 we will explore how KQED News, with the assistance of another Matter start-up company, is also building community through their own unique audience-first strategy

 

"Bay Curious has proven to be extremely popular and widely viewed, generating 11 to 15 times more page views than the newsroom’s other stories. These stories are responsible for more engagement with audiences than KQED typically sees in their other blog posts. Certain Bay Curious stories have reached close to one million people. Leveraging the power of individuals and their curiosity with KQED’s expertise in editorial has proven to be a good merger. This collaboration has made KQED smarter about what people in their community really want to know and what issues are the most important to them."

Keith Holyoak, a UCLA professor of psychology and one of the world’s leading thinkers on analogical reasoning, recommends people ask themselves the following two questions in order to hone their skills: “What does this remind me of?” and “Why does it remind me of it?”
By constantly looking at objects in your environment and material you read and asking yourself these two questions, you build the muscles in your brain that help you make connections across traditional boundaries.

Voice Recognition Software Finally Beats Humans At Typing, Study Finds | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

"Computers have already beaten us at chess, Jeopardy and Go, the ancient board game from Asia. And now, in the raging war with machines, human beings have lost yet another battle — over typing.

Turns out voice recognition software has improved to the point where it is significantly faster and more accurate at producing text on a mobile device than we are at typing on its keyboard. That's according to a new study by Stanford University, the University of Washington and Baidu, the Chinese Internet giant. The study ran tests in English and Mandarin Chinese."
