COMME DES ORGANISMES | Universal curiosity, appreciation and imagination. | Scoop.it
A reimagination of the Spring 2014 Women's Collection by Comme des Garçons / Rei Kawakubo. The motion triptych shows an interpretation of what the initial concepts would have looked liked if they were not realised as a line of runway clothes but spontaneously realized themselves as autonomous life forms. The concept was a result of a collaboration between Antonio Trecel-Diaz, Erik Madigan Heck and Zeitguised. With additional animation by Derya Ötztürk. Sound by Michael Fakesch. The HD original artwork is sold exclusively on Sedition Art.

A Computer Program Has Passed the Turing Test For the First Time

A Computer Program Has Passed the Turing Test For the First Time | Universal curiosity, appreciation and imagination. | Scoop.it

This is big. A computer program has successfully managed to fool a bunch of researchers into thinking that it was a 13-year-old boy named Eugene Goostman. In doing so, it has become the first in the world to have successfully passed the Turing Test. The test is named after computer pioneer Alan Turing. To pass it, a computer program needs to dupe 30 percent of human judges in five-minute, text-based chats, a feat that until now had never been accomplished.

The Secret Sensuality of Trees: Michael Winstone's Globe-trekking Race to Scan and 3D Print Trees Lost to Deforestation | i.materialise 3D Printing Service Blog | Universal curiosity, appreciation and imagination. | Scoop.it
For the past 20 years, Michael Winstone has traveled the world's forests to scan and 3D print trees that are in danger of being cut down. His large 3D print files are then turned into towering, permanent sculptures located in Japan, Spain, and private collections around the world. His most famous work is 41°40’00’’N.00°54’30’’W, and other permanent public works include "N1-53-32-8:132º42'.34º45'.JA" in Takamiya, Hiroshima, Japan and "IGN.185: iv.269.904, Coto Redondo, Pontevedra, Spain."

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist"

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist" | Universal curiosity, appreciation and imagination. | Scoop.it
“Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. “Remember when people used to try to predict the future?” In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea. This kind of bottom-up innovation is seen in the most fascinating, futuristic projects emerging today, and it starts, he says, with being open and alert to what’s going on around you right now. Don’t be a futurist, he suggests: be a now-ist.
