9 Reasons the U.S. Ended Up So Much More Car-Dependent Than Europe

9 Reasons the U.S. Ended Up So Much More Car-Dependent Than Europe | Communication design | Scoop.it
Understanding mistakes of the past can help guide U.S. transportation policy in the future.

Between the 1920s and 1960s, policies adapting cities to car travel in the United States served as a role model for much of Western Europe. But by the late 1960s, many European cities started refocusing their policies to curb car use by promoting walking, cycling, and public transportation. For the last two decades, in the face of car-dependence, suburban sprawl, and an increasingly unsustainable transportation system, U.S. planners have been looking to Western Europe.

Brittany Ortiz's curator insight, October 27, 2014 2:44 PM

This is very true and fascinating to read. It's obvious how technology and cars can change the way we view the world. When in DR this past summer, there were so many people driving a motorcycle. I didn't really get the reason why other than hearing my dad say "porque no cuesta mucho" which in English is saying "because it doesn't cost as much." It made sense, seeing the conditions outside of the resort and also having the opportunity to visit an elementary school and seeing how many students either walked or went 3 to 4 on a motorcycle to get to school. It makes sense how having a car and paying the taxes contributes in a state fixing something. It's obvious how car dependent United States is. Were so lazy to walk up the street to get milk, that we'll prefer to drive our car there. Its the realization we must all unfortunately come to.

Particle zoo in a quantum computer | Communication design | Scoop.it
Physicists in Innsbruck have realized the first quantum simulation of lattice gauge theories, building a bridge between high-energy theory and atomic physics. In the journal Nature, Rainer Blatt's and Peter Zoller's research teams describe how they simulated the creation of elementary particle pairs out of the vacuum by using a quantum computer.

Deep Learning Isn’t a Dangerous Magic Genie — It’s Just Math

Deep Learning Isn’t a Dangerous Magic Genie — It’s Just Math | Communication design | Scoop.it
Pundits often describe deep learning as an imitation of the human brain. But it's really just simple math executed on an enormous scale.

 

Deep learning is a subfield of machine learning, which is a vibrant research area in artificial intelligence, or AI. Abstractly, machine learning is an approach to approximating functions based on a collection of data points. For example, given the sequence “2, 4, 6,…” a machine might predict that the 4th element of the sequence is 8, and that the 5th is 10, by hypothesizing that the sequence is capturing the behavior of the function 2 times X, where X is the position of the element in the sequence. This paradigm is quite general. It has been highly successful in applications ranging from self-driving cars and speech recognition to anticipating airfare fluctuations and much more.

Why Bluetooth Low Energy is the Best Solution for Wearables, Sensors, and Beacons | MbientLab

Why Bluetooth Low Energy is the Best Solution for Wearables, Sensors, and Beacons | MbientLab | Communication design | Scoop.it

As you may know, the MetaWear platform is a wearable, sensor, and beacon development board that uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE) for wireless communication. We decided to use BTLE over other protocols such as Bluetooth Classic, WiFi, and WiFi Direct because BTLE:

  • Has lower power consumption.
    • Can be powered by a coin cell battery
    • Battery can last for months or even years depending on use case
  • Is a less complex protocol.
  • Costs less to implement (unit costs, layout, firmware, etc.).

While the other protocols offer some nice pros, namely higher data throughput and farther range, we believed in the end, BTLE is the best choice for wearables, sensors, and beacons. Now, you may be thinking that it is silly to sacrifice superior data throughput and range however, none of the aforementioned use cases justified trading the power, complexity, and cost benefits of BTLE.

New in-ear device could be the beginning of a world without language barriers

New in-ear device could be the beginning of a world without language barriers | Communication design | Scoop.it

From Gene Roddenberry in Star Trek to Douglas Adams in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, anyone who spends much time forecasting the future comes to realize that language has simply got to go. In a connected world, it’s one of the only things remaining that truly separates us — it’s what keeps keeps us from being able to directly consume and understand one another’s film and literature, and what keeps occupying soldiers from being able to effectively make alliances with local peoples. It’s a primitive relic of a bygone age — if we can convert MP4 to AVI, certainly we ought to be able to convert Mandarin to German. Now, a new device called Pilot could make that dream (mostly) a reality.
