FingerReader - Wearable Text-Reading - MIT Media Lab

The FingerReader is a wearable device that assists in reading printed text. It is a tool both for visually impaired people that require help with accessing printed text, as well as an aid for language translation. Wearers scan a text line with their finger and receive an audio feedback of the words and a haptic feedback of the layout: start and end of line, new line, and other cues. The FingerReader algorithm knows to detect and give feedback when the user veers away from the baseline of the text, and helps them maintain a straight scanning motion within the line.

Henry Markram wants brain-like computing to map the brain

 

If neuroscientist Henry Markram had a dollar for every neuron he wants to map, he still wouldn't have enough money.

 

As it happens, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) researcher has a billion euros, or $1.38 billion, from the European Union to spend over the next ten years, but the normal means of determining a neuron's activity can cost $1 million and take a year. By the time he got through the 3000-odd pathways shown in the photograph of a pinhead-sized slice of brain behind him in a conference room last month, he'd be flat broke, decades older, and he'd still have to map countless more pinheads' worth of neurons to understand the brain. ...

Top Tech Trends & People of 2012 (Focus on New Media Communications)

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

If you would like a free tablet-friendly PDF file, just email me at kenmorrison30 @ yahoo.com (no spaces)

 

P.S. There are some typos and honest mistakes in this textbook, but I am comfortable sharing it as is. I am excited to redesign it for next semester.

This is a course created by fellow curator Ken Morrison.  It contains enough information on social media that everyone will find something of interest.  Thanks for sharing, Ken!

cryptosphere - Encrypted peer-to-peer web application platform

cryptosphere -  Encrypted peer-to-peer web application platform | EDUCACIÓN 3.0 - EDUCATION 3.0 | Scoop.it

The Cryptosphere is a global peer-to-peer cryptosystem for publishing and securely distributing content pseudonymously with no central point of failure. The system is openly federated and anyone can join. To ensure quality service and prevent abuse, the Cryptosphere uses an integrated cryptographically secure reputation system which provides a distributed web of trust.

 

There are several systems with similar goals to the Cryptosphere, such as MNet, Freenet, and Tahoe-LAFS. These systems serve as inspiration for the Cryptosphere's design. The Cryptosphere is also heavily influenced by Git, the distributed version control system.
