Dealing With Personalized Search

Dealing With Personalized Search | My Science | Scoop.it

What Does It Mean To Us SEO's?

It proves even further that search users – and the target audience of your website – are a mixed bag. Some favor personalization; others don’t. Some limit access of bots to their search history; others are clueless about how to do that.

Add a variety of location and language settings, and you will get a whole patchwork of search results just like your real users get. And it is not really obvious how you can track them.

From this Infographic, you will learn:

Why exactly your site ranks differently for different users. How you can simulate miscellaneous search scenarios to see if your site really gets enough visibility.

[VIDEO] Flying Robot That Can Crash and Keep Flying

EPFL researchers at the Laboratory of Intelligent Systems have created a bio-inspired flying robot that can withstand collisions with obstacles in its environment. A unique Active Recovery System allows the robot to pick itself back up after a collision and launch itself back into the air. Such a design could prove useful in exploring hard to reach areas, such as caves or irradiated nuclear power plants.

Stanford biologist and computer scientist discover the 'anternet' | School of Engineering | My Science | Scoop.it

Swarm intelligence involves the aggregate behavior of actors who may be unintelligent. When swarm intelligence principles are more clearly understood and applied to collective intelligence of smart actors, we may see engineered stigmergic intelligence. -- Howard

 

"Transmission Control Protocol, or TCP, is an algorithm that manages data congestion on the Internet, and as such was integral in allowing the early web to scale up from a few dozen nodes to the billions in use today. Here's how it works: As a source, A, transfers a file to a destination, B, the file is broken into numbered packets. When B receives each packet, it sends an acknowledgment, or an ack, to A, that the packet arrived.

This feedback loop allows TCP to run congestion avoidance: If acks return at a slower rate than the data was sent out, that indicates that there is little bandwidth available, and the source throttles data transmission down accordingly. If acks return quickly, the source boosts its transmission speed. The process determines how much bandwidth is available and throttles data transmission accordingly.

It turns out that harvester ants (Pogonomyrmex barbatus) behave nearly the same way when searching for food. Gordon has found that the rate at which harvester ants – which forage for seeds as individuals – leave the nest to search for food corresponds to food availability."

An interview with Maria Popova : fascinating to see how her routine works for her. Unsurprisingly, it involves a huge amount of reading.

 

It's also interesting to see the criteria she uses for what she'll just tweet vs what she'll pick up for her blog.
