Games with Words: Results (Round 1): Crowdsourcing the Structure of Meaning & Thought

Games with Words: Results (Round 1): Crowdsourcing the Structure of Meaning & Thought | Talking things | Scoop.it

"When researchers look at the aspects of meaning that matter for grammar across different languages, many of the same aspects pop up over and over again. Does the verb describe something changing (break vs. hit)? Does it describe something only people can do (own, know, believe vs. exist, break, roll)? Does it describe an event or a state (frighten vs. fear)? This is too suspicious of a pattern to be accidental. Researchers like Steven Pinker have argued that language cares about these aspects of meaning because these are basic distinctions our brain makes when we think and reason about the world (see Stuff of Thought). Thus, the structure of language gives us insight into the structure of thought"

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, December 17, 2013 9:04 PM

One problem with testing the relationships between grammar, meaning, and thought is the difficulty of checking every verb in every grammatical construction for every aspect of meaning would be intractable for individuals or entire institutions. That's where VerbCorner comes in, a platform for testing questions about verbs. Between May and Octobe, 2013, 641 verbs and six different aspects of meaning had been examined by 1513 volunteers who provided 117, 584 judgements -- enough data to begin analyzing. Citizen science is entering the study of the mind. It won't be long before forms of augmented collective intelligence explore the possibility spaces around augmented collective intelligence: Now that we know how to use networks to enable strangers to solve problems together, we can use the methods that emerge to build better platforms -- Doug Engelbart called this "bootstrapping," and it's the driving force of augmented collective intelligence.

2014 is the year of the internet of things—no, seriously, we mean it this time | Talking things | Scoop.it
It's fair to say that more people have heard of the "internet of things" than have experienced it.
roberto gilli's insight:

quote: “A lot of these wireless technologies for connecting things have gotten cheap, reliable and low power enough,” says Hawkinson of Smartthings. “Now, the cost of adding connectivity [to an everyday device] is less than $5, and [these processors and radios] can work on batteries for more than a year.”

Making Europe's cities smarter - EU Press release re. smart cities strategic implementation plan

Making Europe's cities smarter - EU Press release re. smart cities strategic implementation plan | Talking things | Scoop.it

At a conference today hosted by the European Commission, city leaders, CEOs and civil society leaders discussed the actions outlined in the "Smart Cities Strategic Implementation Plan" and how to put them into practice. The Commission announced that it will launch an 'Invitation for Smart City and Community Commitments' in spring 2014 to mobilise work on the action plan's priorities. The plan is part of Europe's fifth "Innovation Partnership".

 

The Commission intends to make available approximately EUR 200 million for Smart Cities and communities in the 2014-2015 budgets of the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, to accelerate progress and enlarge the scale of roll-out of smart cities solutions. There will also be possibilities to access the European Structural and Investment Funds.

Le web 3.0, c'est aussi le monde numérique qui rejoint le monde physique, le matériel qui rejoint le logiciel. Le résultat est un nouveau medium.

A l'occasion de la conférence Solid qui va se tenir en mai 2014 à San Francisco, quelques tendances qui vont alimenter ce futur :

  • Des API pour le monde physqiue
  • Le fabrication sans frottement
  • L'intelligence logicielle du monde physique
  • Toute entreprise est une entreprise logicielle
  • La démocratisation des systèmes complexes
  • Le monde physqiue en tant que service
  • La conception d'interface au-delà de l'écran
  • Le logiciel pour simplifier le monde physique

EZ Robots are ready to roll ... or walk, or scuttle | GizMag.com | Talking things | Scoop.it

Ez-Robot, a small company based in Calgary, Canada, is aiming to start a new "revolution" in robotics. The company's new Revolution line is a series of small, hobby-sized robots with modular parts, easy-to-use features, and snap-together mechanics. The line consists of three new robot kits: a humanoid two legged walker, a rover with tracks, and a hexapod, or six-legged spider-bot.

 

Ez-Robot has been around since 2011, making robot controllers, servo motors, and robot control software. Previous products have concentrated on adding functionality to existing items – first by turning radio control toys into robots, and then adding intelligence and additional sensors to off-the-shelf robots like the Roomba and WowWee's Roboquad.

 

The company's three new robots are based around a simple sliding mechanical interface called the "Ez-Bit clip'n'play" technology, which allows chains of servomotors to be attached to create arms, legs, or even pan-tilt mounts for cameras. No tools are required, and all of the parts can be created on a 3D printer, if you have one. Ez-Robot will send you the patterns to make your own components.
