Autonomous Tent - Luxury Tent Can Be Raised In Days and Leave Without a Trace - SERIOUS WONDER

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

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.

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.

Putting a computer in your brain is no longer science fiction

Putting a computer in your brain is no longer science fiction | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
VENICE BEACH, Calif. — Like many in Silicon Valley, technology entrepreneur Bryan Johnson sees a future in which intelligent machines can do things like drive cars on their own and anticipate our needs before we ask.

What’s uncommon is how Johnson wants to respond: find a way to supercharge the human brain so that we can keep up with the machines.

From an unassuming office in Venice Beach, his science-fiction-meets-science start-up, Kernel, is building a tiny chip that can be implanted in the brain to help people suffering from neurological damage caused by strokes, Alzheimer’s or concussions. Top neuroscientists who are building the chip — they call it a neuroprosthetic — hope that in the longer term, it will be able to boost intelligence, memory and other cognitive tasks.

The medical device is years in the making, Johnson acknowledges, but he can afford the time. He sold his payments company, Braintree, to PayPal for $800 million in 2013. A former Mormon raised in Utah, the 38-year-old speaks about the project with missionary-like intensity and focus.

“Human intelligence is landlocked in relationship to artificial intelligence — and the landlock is the degeneration of the body and the brain,” he said in an interview about the company, which he had not discussed publicly before. “This is a question of keeping humans front and center as we progress.”

Introduction to Focus Issue: Complex Dynamics in Networks, Multilayered Structures and Systems

In the last years, network scientists have directed their interest to the multi-layer character of real-world systems, and explicitly considered the structural and dynamical organization of graphs made of diverse layers between its constituents. Most complex systems include multiple subsystems and layers of connectivity and, in many cases, the interdependent components of systems interact through many different channels. Such a new perspective is indeed found to be the adequate representation for a wealth of features exhibited by networked systems in the real world. The contributions presented in this Focus Issue cover, from different points of view, the many achievements and still open questions in the field of multi-layer networks, such as: new frameworks and structures to represent and analyze heterogeneous complex systems, different aspects related to synchronization and centrality of complex networks, interplay between layers, and applications to logistic, biological, social, and technological fields.

Social Media Might Be Better for Teens Than We Thought :: New Learning Times

Social Media Might Be Better for Teens Than We Thought :: New Learning Times | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Studies have found that among American college students, empathy is on the decline. While some might think social media use is to blame, the case may not be cut and dry. In fact, several studies have shown the opposite to be true, including a recent one aimed at investigating the relationship between social media and empathy.

The researchers of this study administered two questionnaires one year apart to nearly 1,000 teens. The questions focused on how much time each teen spent on social media sites daily in addition to their levels of cognitive empathy (the ability to understand their peers’ feelings) and affective empathy (the ability to share their peers’ feelings).

Over the course of the year, they found that social media use increased and was positively correlated with both cognitive and affective empathy. In other words, the greater amount of time a teen spent on social media, the greater her levels of empathy. Teens who spent more time on Facebook, Twitter, or instant messaging apps improved their ability to share and understand the feelings of others over time.

How Elon Musk Learns Faster And Better Than Everyone Else – The Mission – Medium | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
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."
