Tomorrow’s world: A visual guide to the next 150 years

Tomorrow’s world: A visual guide to the next 150 years | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

As we begin a new year, BBC Future has compiled 40 intriguing predictions made by scientists, politicians, journalists, bloggers and other assorted pundits in recent years about the shape of the world from 2013 to 2150.

 

They range from the serious to the fanciful, from the exciting to the petrifying.

And to get a gauge on how likely they are to happen, we asked the special bets department at British betting firm Ladbrokes to give us their odds on each prediction coming true.

How many of these will come true,,,ha...ha I remember some of the great predictions in the past that never made it, whilst the unpredicted did. Anyone remember the "atomic" egg that would fit in a box to power all your household power needs? Anyone remember all the free time we were going to have to manage because robots and AI would be doing all the work?

New research & maps provide a detailed look at how the brain organizes visual information

New research & maps provide a detailed look at how the brain organizes visual information | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

How does our brain organize the visual information that our eyes capture? Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, used computational models of brain imaging data to answer this question and arrived at what they call “continuous semantic space” – a notion which serves as the basis for the first interactive maps showing how the brain categorizes what we see.The data on which the maps are based was collected while the subjects watched movie clips. Brain activity was recorded via functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), a type of MRI that measures brain activity by detecting related changes in blood flow. In order to find the correlations in the data collected, the researchers used a type of analysis known as regularized linear regression...
