Software-defined data center - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Software-defined data center

Software-defined data center (SDDC) is an architectural approach to IT infrastructure that extends virtualization concepts such as abstraction, pooling, and automation to all of the data center's resources and services to achieve IT as a service. In a software-defined data center, "compute, storage, networking, security, and availability services are pooled, aggregated, and delivered as software, and managed by intelligent, policy-driven software."

La révolution de l'architecture imprimée

La révolution de l'architecture imprimée | Homo Numericus Bis | Scoop.it

L'impression 3D permet beaucoup de choses : prototypage rapide, personnalisation des produits, reproduction instantanée des objets, etc. Mais chaque jour, on trouve de nouvelles applications inouïes. L’architecte computationnel Michael Hansmeyer lui emploie les imprimantes 3D pour faire de l'art, plus précisément il construit des colonnes ornementales ou des pièces aux géométries complexes jamais vues auparavant. De nouveaux algorithmes lui permettent de créer des objets inimaginables aux innombrables facettes, impossibles à réaliser à la main.

Rage Against the Algorithms

Rage Against the Algorithms | Homo Numericus Bis | Scoop.it
How can we know the biases of a piece of software? By reverse engineering it, of course.
Mlik Sahib's insight:

And this is why it’s absolutely essential to have computational journalists not just engaging in the reverse engineering of algorithms, but also reporting and digging deeper into the motives and design intentions behind algorithms. Sure, it can be hard to convince companies running such algorithms to open up in detail about how their algorithms work, but interviews can still uncover details about larger goals and objectives built into an algorithm, better contextualizing a reverse-engineering analysis. Transparency is still important here too, as it adds to the information that can be used to characterize the technical system.

Mlik Sahib's insight:

« Le chercheur n'a aucun intérêt à limiter ses lecteurs à ceux qui peuvent payer les éditeurs. »

À l'occasion de la semaine internationale de l'Open Access 2012, MyScienceWork a organisé deux événements parisiens qui ont rassemblé de nombreux acteurs du mouvement. Pendant la première soirée, qui s'est tenue à l'Université Pierre et Marie Curie, partenaire de l'événement, Bernard Rentier a dévoilé les raisons du succès du dépôt universitaire ORBi qui a récemment atteint les 85 000 publications.
Publier en Open Access est logiquement dans l'intérêt des chercheurs : un article en Open Access est lu et cité 30 fois plus que s'il est publié dans une revue payante. Mais les résultats impressionnants de ORBi sont aussi liés à son côté « quasi-obligatoire »...

Thierry Belleguic's curator insight, October 17, 2013 11:39 AM


Les initiatives se multiplient afin de changer l’image des musées et d’attirer un public toujours plus large. Entre enjeux de démocratisation et risque d’instrumentalisation, la culture est pourtant un milieu qui sait se renouveler et qui véhicule aujourd’hui une image de plus en plus « fun » et participative, voire collaborative.

 

Portés ou non par des professionnels du marketing et de la communication, ces initiatives montrent bien l’effervescence que font naître l’art et la culture.
