This outstanding infographic (courtesy of postscapes.com) begins with some information about our current state of urbanization.


Did you know that 1.3 million people are moving to cities each week?! It then explains the need for smart cities and delves into what is required to establish these intelligent connected environments, how the smart city may take various forms in the developing worlds and what specific technologies are necessary to achieve such grand goals in practice.

There is an evolution taking place where politics, policy, technology, the environment, and the economy all intersect. This movement towards technical, empirically driven local policy making could be our saving grace.This could be the future of government.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, December 19, 2014 2:10 AM

A stunning infographic which predicts how urban living will change in this century.  Our age is truly becoming "a century of smart cities."  Exciting times lie ahead.  Aloha, Russ.

Over the past several years, a new wave of robot technology has offered us a glimpse at our heavily automated future, featuring drones, telepresence bots, therapeutic robots, and surgery bots that assist (or maybe take over for) doctors. The robotics industry has actually been around for a long time, with numerous companies working on warehouse automation, industrial robotics, and the like since the middle of the last century.

 

But as this interactive visualization from the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Quid reveals, the industry is expanding at near-warp speed.

Nikhil Buduma | Deep Learning in a Nutshell | The Rise of the Algorithmic Medium | Scoop.it
Deep learning. Neural networks. Backpropagation. Over the past year or two, I've heard these buzz words being tossed around a lot, and it's something that has definitely seized my curiosity recently. Deep learning is an area of active research these days, and if you've kept up with the field of computer science, I'm sure you've come across at least some of these terms at least once.
