Digital rights - Wikipedia

Digital rights - Wikipedia

The term digital rights describes the human rights that allow individuals to access, use, create, and publish digital media or to access and use computers, other electronic devices, or communications networks. The term is particularly related to the protection and realization of existing rights, such as the right to privacy or freedom of expression, in the context of new digital technologies, especially the Internet.

Statistical mechanics of ecological systems: Neutral theory and beyond

Statistical mechanics of ecological systems: Neutral theory and beyond | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
It is of societal importance to advance the understanding of emerging patterns of biodiversity from biological and ecological systems. The neutral theory offers a statistical-mechanical framework that relates key biological properties at the individual scale with macroecological properties at the community scale. This article surveys the quantitative aspects of neutral theory and its extensions for physicists who are interested in what important problems remain unresolved for studying ecological systems.

Reserarchers find order in a process previously assumed to be random

Reserarchers find order in a process previously assumed to be random | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Scientific discoveries often arise from noticing the unexpected. Such was the case when Stanford researchers, studying a tiny device that has become increasingly important in disease diagnostics and drug discovery, observed the surprising way it funneled thousands of water droplets into an orderly single file, squeezing them drop by drop, out the tip of the device.

Heroes and Villains in Complex Socio-technical Systems

The history of efforts to reduce ‘human errors’ across workplaces and industries suggests that people (or their weaknesses) are seen as a problem to control [1, 3, 15, 16]. However, some have proposed that humans can be heroes as they can adapt and compensate for weaknesses within a system and direct it away from potential catastrophes [15]. But the existence of heroes would suggest that villains (i.e. humans who cause a disaster) exist as well [16], and that it might well be the outcome that determines which human becomes which. The purpose of this chapter is to examine if complex socio-technical systems would allow for the existence of heroes and villains, as outcomes in such systems are usually thought to be the product of interactions rather than a single factor [17]. The chapter will first examine if the properties of complex systems as suggested by Dekker et al. [18] would allow for heroes and villains to exist. These include: (a) synthesis and holism, (b) emergence, (c) foreseeability of probabilities, not certainties, (d) time-irreversibility and, (e) perpetual incompleteness and uncertainty of knowledge, before concluding with a discussion of the implications of the (non) existence of heroes and villains in complex systems for the way we conduct investigations when something goes wrong inside of those systems.

How to Raise Creative Children

How to Raise Creative Children | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
Creative children are the inventors and visionaries of the future; scientists with artistic hobbies, for example, are much more likely to win a Nobel Prize than their peers. In this interview filmed at the 2016 Aspen Ideas Festival, University of Pennsylvania Wharton School professor Adam Grant shares insight from his latest book, Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World. “Conformity is dangerous,” he says in this video, and suggests three ways parents can encourage their children’s creative development.
