From Matter to Life

From Matter to Life | The Information Age | Scoop.it

"From Matter to Life: Information and Causality"
Edited by Sara Imari Walker, Paul C. W. Davies and George F. R. Ellis
Cambridge University Press, 2017

Recent advances suggest that the concept of information might hold the key to unravelling the mystery of life's nature and origin. Fresh insights from a broad and authoritative range of articulate and respected experts focus on the transition from matter to life, and hence reconcile the deep conceptual schism between the way we describe physical and biological systems. A unique cross-disciplinary perspective, drawing on expertise from philosophy, biology, chemistry, physics, and cognitive and social sciences, provides a new way to look at the deepest questions of our existence. This book addresses the role of information in life, and how it can make a difference to what we know about the world. Students, researchers, and all those interested in what life is and how it began will gain insights into the nature of life and its origins that touch on nearly every domain of science.

Quantum Machine Learning – a perfect science & technology partnership

This blog have been posting quite heavily on the topics of Machine Learning and Quantum Computing. It is obviously related with the increased interest in those fields, both from the academic community and the business community, and for good reasons, as such fields of study keep showing signs of promising breakthroughs. This will potentially unleashing innovative new research major events, as well as new business or commercial applications.

Blockchain Simulator – proof of work, security and performance of cryptocurrencies

Arthur Gervais (ETH Zurich) & Co were also present at the last CCS 2016 – the 23rd ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (Hofburg Palace Vienna, Austria / October 24-28, 2016). They presented one other interesting talk with a supporting paper, and The Information Age liked it and wanted to further share and review.

Elastico – a new scalable blockchain protocol proposal

Recently I have been researching and witnessed some nice papers on the topic of crytocurrencies and the blockchain protocols. It appears that these topics are gaining some academic traction within the Computer Science and computer security communities. As to the broader applicability and functionality of the major developments of the protocols, namely Bitcoin and Ethereum cryptocurrencies, it seems that the challenges to overcome will increase in the following months or years. That is not to diminish their remarkable innovative potential and the promise they bring to establish alternative new forms of digital value creation, sharing and enhancement of transactional capacity.

The non-linear health consequences of living in larger cities

Urbanization promotes economy, mobility, access and availability of resources, but on the other hand, generates higher levels of pollution, violence, crime, and mental distress. The health consequences of the agglomeration of people living close together are not fully understood. Particularly, it remains unclear how variations in the population size across cities impact the health of the population. We analyze the deviations from linearity of the scaling of several health-related quantities, such as the incidence and mortality of diseases, external causes of death, wellbeing, and health-care availability, in respect to the population size of cities in Brazil, Sweden and the USA. We find that deaths by non-communicable diseases tend to be relatively less common in larger cities, whereas the per-capita incidence of infectious diseases is relatively larger for increasing population size. Healthier life style and availability of medical support are disproportionally higher in larger cities. The results are connected with the optimization of human and physical resources, and with the non-linear effects of social networks in larger populations. An urban advantage in terms of health is not evident and using rates as indicators to compare cities with different population sizes may be insufficient.

How Uber Hides Behind Its Algorithm

How Uber Hides Behind Its Algorithm | The Information Age | Scoop.it

What the ride-hailing experience shows is the extent to which the behavior of these artificial intelligence systems can diverge significantly from the trappings they adopt. Similar mirages are cast elsewhere throughout the “sharing economy” and even in the design of our social platforms. They downplay the responsibility of the platform designer, masking the more active role these technologies play in the sectors they exist in.

 

 

As the uses of artificial intelligence continue to broaden, society will increasingly confront questions around the power these technologies can and should have. As we move toward regulation, we need to question the narratives offered by companies and make sure that policy reflects reality.

Yet another metric to follow. I get that more time is probably more valuable than less time, but time alone doesn't measure the conversion rate. If it's on my screen for a time, and maybe I laugh at it because it's funny and wait for the next laugh, that doesn't necessarily mean the ad made me more likely to buy, or positively influenced my image of the advertiser (was I laughing with or at the advertiser?)
