40 Maps That Explain The Internet

40 Maps That Explain The Internet | smart cities | Scoop.it

The internet increasingly pervades our lives, delivering information to us no matter where we are. It takes a complex system of cables, servers, towers, and other infrastructure, developed over decades, to allow us to stay in touch with our friends and family so effortlessly. Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet — where it came from, how it works, and how it's used by people around the world.

Urbanization and the evolution of cities across 10,000 years

About 10,000 years ago, hunter-gatherers, aided by rudimentary agriculture, moved to semi-permanent villages and never looked back. With further developments came food surpluses, leading to commerce, specialization and, many years later with the Industrial Revolution, the modern city.

 

Vance Kite plots our urban past and how we can expect future cities to adapt to our growing populations.

Dr. Michael Yao's curator insight, December 17, 2013 10:11 AM

Indeed I had argue in my works (also discussed here: http://www.linkedin.com/groupItem?type=member&trk=groups_most_popular-0-b-ttl&gid=37945&view=&qid=b9602a17-705f-4827-8993-ec0761b852e8&goback=%2Egmp_37945&item=5812292805464203266)  on Artificial Consciousness that the process which led to intelligence was more than simply computational and dependant on a configuration which brought about consciousness. Because either one is capable of solving problems successfully or not, does not imply that one is intelligent or capable of thinking, such as a machine which can almost always outperform a human given a specific task, yet is not intelligent, althought the human is. 

 It is therefore mandatory for us to not look at common human cognitive errors as simply erronous but as actually footprints in our understanding of the human brain and its processing. Looking at consciousness as the fundamental building blocks for intelligence, and an empirical science of problem solving dynamics, are definitely particulates this neurological research is seeking to achieve which confirm Don Sigma Corp.'s  particulates on the works ;)

Tri Tran's curator insight, March 27, 2015 4:23 AM

"Author of the paper, Gary Lupyan Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Wisconsin, USA, argues that the reason people mistake 798 to be an odd number is that—even though they know that only the last digit matters, they can’t help but also process the other digits, which in this case are odd. This makes the whole number—798—seem “almost” odd, and to some people, actually odd. Such gradedness and context dependence demonstrates just how difficult it is for some people to following strict rules and definitions."
No matter how "smart" and knowledgeable the human race gets, we will almost make mistakes, human error that is. Although it might seem like a cognitive thinking is just identifying something through following a set of rules (so does a computer) there are other biases that comes into play with the human brain.

judycurtis's curator insight, May 22, 2014 12:17 PM

This is the first in Sue Lebeck's four-part series "Previewing the possible for smart cities.

Standards, prestandards and potential future standards relevant to the smart cities of the future are emerging — through new paradigms, city-centric networks, alliances and consortia and certification bodies. The best practices and more that arise from these efforts will provide or inform the standardization which will lead us to our 21st century new normal for cities.

 

This brief compilation of emerging standards reveals the breadth of the smart city subject, the value of collaboration, the opportunities for innovation and the potential for 21st century transformation.

 

Starting with the ICT enablers that drive smart cities, this multi-part sampling will touch also upon energy, water, transportation, the built environment, carbon and climate, resilience, community, materials and food, finance and economic development, city business and measurement indicators.
