The World as 100 People / Infographic

The World as 100 People / Infographic | Communication design | Scoop.it

A demographic portrait of humanity if the world were 100 people.


From data source, 100people.org:

The world population has now reached 7 billion people. This milestone inspired us to conduct research to update our statistics, and the changes over the past 5 years are remarkable. In 2006, only 1 person out of 100 would have had a college education-- today that number has jumped to 7 thanks in part to advances in higher education in Asia. The detailed research and source information can be found here and the statistics provided by Donella Meadows in 1990 that originally inspired our project can be viewed here.

Kubo, the robot that teaches kids to code, is now available for preorder | #Coding #MakerED #MakerSpaces

Kubo, the robot that teaches kids to code, is now available for preorder | #Coding #MakerED #MakerSpaces | Communication design | Scoop.it
We saw tons of new stuff at CES this year. But one thing that particularly caught our eye was Kubo, the robot that teaches kids how to code.

Kubo is a pretty simple robot – it’s about the size of a can of soda and has two wheels that allow it to roll around a desk or table. But what it lacks in advanced physical ability it makes up for in brains.

Kubo comes with its own programming language called TagTile. The language consists of puzzle pieces that fit together to give Kubo instructions. For example, you could connect three pieces together – forward, turn, then another forward. Kubo then drives over these pieces oncer to “learn” the command, then can remember and perform it without needing the pieces.

Kubo reads the puzzle pieces using an RFID technology – each piece has an individual embedded RFID tag, and Kubo itself has a reader built in.

While it sounds simple, it’s a pretty good way to teach kids the basics of programming without having them stare at a screen.

Lydia Phillip's curator insight, January 19, 3:47 PM

This article is about the social technology, the Amazon Echo, that may have the potential to solve a murder case. The Amazon Echo is a smart device that can perform many tasks such as calling a cab, playing music, or giving weather updates. It does so by constantly listening for the “wake word”, Alexa. The police believe that the device was on during the time of a murder and can give valuable information about the night in question. The Telegraph UK is a reputable source when evaluating the credibility of the article.

            The concepts of this article are very relevant as technology and social media become more integrated and advanced. This article calls into question the privacy of citizens using this technology for social purposes. Controversies between companies that create such technology and law enforcement have arisen. These concepts newer in nature, as there are now programs such as Apple’s Siri and Amazon Echo’s Alexa that can store information when the technology is used socially. Privacy is called into question, when apps on your devices track your locations – giving congruent time periods at locations – or when smart devices listen to learn your history of commands. This leads to companies often having to turn over personal information derived from social media and technology.

Kindred AI: Building machines with human intelligence | Communication design | Scoop.it

Suzanne Gildert is a founder and CTO of Kindred AI – a company pursuing the modest vision of “building machines with human-like intelligence.” Her startup just came out of stealth mode and I am both proud and humbled to say that this is the first ever long-form interview that Suzanne has done. Kindred AI has raised 15 million dollars from notable investors and currently employs 35 experts in their offices in Toronto, Vancouver and San Francisco. Even better, Suzanne is a long term Singularity.FM podcast fan, total tech geek, Gothic artist, PhD in experimental physics and former D-Wave Quantum Computer maker. Right now I honestly can’t think of a more interesting person to have a conversation with.

Researchers use radar to track 3.5 trillion migrating insects over England | Communication design | Scoop.it

Researchers in the UK have turned some highly specialized radar equipment to the skies to track a staggering volume of material—3.2 kilotons of it—as it transits the skies of southern England. The material in question? Insects, about 3.5 trillion of them each year. While smaller insects seem to drift on the prevailing wind, larger ones appear to undergo a directed, seasonal migration.

450 Million Year Old Spherical Trilobites Eggs Found

450 Million Year Old Spherical Trilobites Eggs Found | Communication design | Scoop.it

The discovery that extinct marine organisms called trilobites laid eggs provides the first direct evidence for how they reproduced. 

 

Trilobites lived between 520 million and 250 million years ago, and are one of the earliest known groups of arthropods (invertebrates, including modern insects, with exoskeletons and segmented bodies).

 

Thomas Hegna of Western Illinois University in Macomb and his colleagues report the discovery of ancient trilobite eggs in New York State, in rocks about 450 million years old. The eggs are spherical, almost 200 micrometers in diameter, and lie near several well-preserved trilobite fossils.

 

Trilobites may have released eggs and sperm through genital pores at or near the backs of their heads, the authors say.

How to transform schools into learning organisations? | #ModernEDUcation #LEARNing2LEARN  | Communication design | Scoop.it
Schools nowadays are required to learn faster than ever before in order to deal effectively with the growing pressures of a rapidly changing environment. Many schools however, look much the same today as they did a generation ago, and too many teachers are not developing the pedagogies and practices required to meet the diverse needs of 21st-century learners.

Geemik Maria Açucena Da Silva's curator insight, January 15, 11:00 AM
"Based on an in-depth analysis of the literature and informed by a small network of experts, the paper identifies and operationalises an integrated model that consists of seven over-arching ‘action-oriented' dimensions which show how to transform schools into learning organisations: Developing and sharing a vision centred on the learning of all students. Creating and supporting continuous learning opportunities for all staff. Promoting team learning and collaboration among all staff. Establishing a culture of inquiry, innovation and exploration. Embedding systems for collecting and exchanging knowledge and learning. Learning with and from the external environment and larger learning system. Modelling and growing learning leadership. In short, a school as learning organisation has the capacity to change and adapt routinely to new environments and circumstances as its members, individually and together, learn their way to realising their vision."

By teaching students these skills in an authentic, applicable way, will they see each other differently? It’s worth finding out. With so many curricular and time restraints on teachers, how can we be expected to explicitly teach empathy in a meaningful way?

A Definition Of Empathy

Webster’s dictionary defines empathy as: the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either in the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner; also: the capacity for this.

Is the universe fine-tuned for life to evolve?

Is the universe fine-tuned for life to evolve? | Communication design | Scoop.it
Geraint F. Lewis’ day job involves creating synthetic universes on supercomputers. They can be overwhelmingly bizarre, unstable places. The question that compels him is: how did our universe come to be so perfectly tuned for stability and life?
 

For more than 400 years, physicists treated the universe like a machine, taking it apart to see how it ticks. The surprise is it turns out to have remarkably few parts: just leptons and quarks and four fundamental forces to glue them together.

But those few parts are exquisitely machined. If we tinker with their settings, even slightly, the universe as we know it would cease to exist. Science now faces the question of why the universe appears to have been “fine-tuned” to allow the appearance of complex life, a question that has some potentially uncomfortable answers.

The only way is ethics: what are the moral obligations of a graphic designer?

The only way is ethics: what are the moral obligations of a graphic designer? | Communication design | Scoop.it
To a doctor, ethics are about keeping a patient alive. The modern Hippocratic oath that a doctor takes is the main example of this. A doctor must swear to "use treatments for the benefit of the ill in accordance with my ability and my judgement.” To a lawyer, the issue of ethics also relates primarily to treating clients well; although this is about ensuring that no conflicts of interest occur and that a lawyer keeps confidential any potentially damaging information they are told by a client. To a designer, at least a designer today, ethical issues are viewed as coming from the client. Rather than framing ethical questions in terms of how the designers themselves might behave professionally, designers frame these questions not around their own practice but around those of the client. What does the client do? Is this ethically acceptable or not? Indeed, is this politically acceptable or not?
