Google and Amazon Hit the Feed Trough – NewCo Shift

Google and Amazon Hit the Feed Trough – NewCo Shift | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
When the top five companies by market cap are all roughly in the same business, they’ll inevitably start going after each other’s core business. As for startups working on adjacent markets? As long…
nukem777's insight:

The market for a consumer’s attention (and dollars) is only so large. As the Big Five begin to hit the limit of their natural growth, it’s predictable that they’ll start to flex their muscles in each other’s core markets. This ain’t a bad thing: competition drives innovation, and let’s be honest: There’s not been an awful lot of that in core search, social, and shopping lately.

Nice, but what's to look at??? "A big problem for even the biggest manufacturers is that there isn’t a ton of content—especially top-quality content—for these smartphone-based headsets, says Brian Blau, an analyst with the market research firm Gartner."

Toward Personal Learning by Stephen Downes

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, July 18, 4:29 AM
Why personal learning? As a philosopher at heart, I could have chosen to devote my efforts to any number of significant problems. The neural networks which have become commonplace today could have captured my attention, as they have for so many others; this would certainly make sense given my own intellectual history. I could have focused even more deeply on the core idea of connective knowledge. I could perhaps have looked more deeply at scientific method in an era of discovery through the process of design. But each age sets its own priorities, and personal learning I think captures what is important today.

A reincarnation of one of the oldest ideas in artificial intelligence could finally make it possible to truly converse with our computers. And Facebook has a chance to make it happen first.

 LeCun guesses that virtual helpers with a mastery of language unprecedented for software will be available in just two to five years. He expects that anyone who doubts deep learning’s ability to master language will be proved wrong even sooner.

Your Brain Doesn't Contain Memories. It Is Memories

Your Brain Doesn't Contain Memories. It Is Memories | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Recall your favorite memory: the big game you won; the moment you first saw your child's face; the day you realized you had fallen in love. It's not a single memory, though, is it? Reconstructing it, you remember the smells, the colors, the funny thing some other person said, and the way it all made you feel.

Your brain's ability to collect, connect, and create mosaics from these milliseconds-long impressions is the basis of every memory. By extension, it is the basis of you. This isn't just metaphysical poetics. Every sensory experience triggers changes in the molecules of your neurons, reshaping the way they connect to one another. That means your brain is literally made of memories, and memories constantly remake your brain. This framework for memory dates back decades. And a sprawling new review published today in Neuron adds an even finer point: Memory exists because your brain’s molecules, cells, and synapses can tell time.

Defining memory is about as difficult as defining time. In general terms, memory is a change to a system that alters the way that system works in the future. "A typical memory is really just a reactivation of connections between different parts of your brain that were active at some previous time," says neuroscientist Nikolay Kukushkin, coauthor of this paper. And all animals—along with many single-celled organisms—possess some sort of ability to learn from the past.

Intel’s new chip puts a teraflop in your desktop. Here's what that means

Intel’s new chip puts a teraflop in your desktop. Here's what that means | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Earlier this week in Taipei, Intel announced the most powerful desktop chip for consumers that it has ever sold. With 18 cores and a price tag of $1,999, the processor is known as a teraflop chip. Read on.
nukem777's insight:

In short: a powerful chip like this can make virtual reality, gaming, streaming 4K video, or video editing all go faster and more smoothly. A PlayStation 4 has a graphics processing unit that can do over a teraflop, if you’re keeping score at home.

Android as we know it is dead, but it's not going to go away | ZDNet | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Android has problems, and Google knows that and has plans to replace it with something better. But the Android name won't be going anywhere.

So much for open source in the marketplace
"While Android, the operating system with a Linux kernel, is dead, Android, the brand, is not going anywhere. And if Google is looking to start making custom silicon, we could be seeing Project Fuchsia-based platform go in some interesting directions."

Number of girls taking AP computer-science exam more than doubles

Number of girls taking AP computer-science exam more than doubles | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

"More girls than ever took an AP computer-science exam this year, Seattle nonprofit Code.org announced Tuesday, calling the results “incredible.”

 

"Code.org crunched the numbers from the AP College Board, which shows that 29,708 girls in the U.S. took an Advanced Placement computer science exam this year, more than double the number from 2016.

 

"Girls made up about 27 percent of the 111,262 students who took an AP computer-science exam in 2017.

 

"The number of minorities underrepresented in the tech industry — black, Latinx and Native American — who took the exam nearly tripled from last year, reaching 22,199 students this year. That was about 20 percent of the total."

On Premise VS Cloud Computing - Pros and Cons Comparison

There is no question that businesses can gain enormous benefits from #cloudcomputing. Cloud computing's leading benefit is providing leading-edge technology that is very affordable for small and large businesses alike. That said, there are many who are not convinced that this is the right avenue to take. Even though there are many advantages in this technology, there are some negatives as well. Without a doubt, the positives are outweighing the negatives but companies need to know where they are going, how they are going to get there, and what to expect when they do get there.
