Mehdi Medjaoui : “Le design des API conditionne la forme du monde de demain” (interview par Diana Filippova)

Mehdi Medjaoui : “Le design des API conditionne la forme du monde de demain” (interview par Diana Filippova) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Mehdi Medjaoui fait partie d’une espèce peu commune : l’entrepreneur normal. Sa startup, OAuth.io, tourne bien sans scaler ni couler. APIDays, la conférence sur les API qu’il a créée en 2012, rencontre un succès soutenu en restant à taille humaine. Il aime le sport, la politique et les bouquins de philo. Mais ne nous y trompons pas, s’il s’y connaît sacrément en matière d’API sans pour autant revendiquer l’AOP “expert”, Mehdi possède une qualité rare : sa vision de l’entrepreneuriat, des API et de la tech est d’abord politique. Flanqué de son baluchon et de son meilleur dictaphone, KMF a passé quelques heures en sa compagnie pour comprendre pourquoi diable les API sont tout sauf une affaire de techno.

Remember Second Life? Its creators are back with a virtual reality platform (Sansar)

Remember Second Life? Its creators are back with a virtual reality platform (Sansar) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
Sansar is a new social, virtual-reality world coming later this year from the company behind Second Life.

 

In theory, you can do whatever you want in virtual reality, and my VR tour guide and I are taking this seriously: we’re dressed like aliens (he’s red; I’m green), standing on the stern of a floating ship looking out at beautiful tiny islands levitating in the distance and a serene garden below us.

 

Where else can we go? The possibilities are limitless, in a sense, because we could also just build a new virtual space to hang out in if what we want doesn’t exist...

OpenDrop - #opensource digital microfludics platform for research purposes

OpenDrop - #opensource digital microfludics platform for research purposes | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

OpenDrop is a new design for an open source digital microfludics platform for research purposes. The device uses recent electro-wetting technology to control small droplets of liquids. Potential applications are lab on a chip devices for automating processes of digital biology. How ever the present design should also open the technology to other field and allow experimentation to find new applications. Including the field of art, music, games and education.

 

The design approach chosen relies strongly on Do-It-Your-Self (DIY) and Low-Cost. To aim is to only use standard and widely-available components, materials, and production processes. We try to avoid parts that aren’t available to individual customers or processes that require expensive setup costs. Also all design files and software required to operate your hardware are shared under open licenses.

 

We commit to Best Practices for Open-Source Hardware (OSHWA)
We respect The {unspoken} rules of Open Source Hardware

La biométrie pour surveiller les développeurs qui créent des bugs - par Guillaume Champeau (2014) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
Des chercheurs de Microsoft proposent de mettre au point des outils de débogage qui anticipent sur les erreurs réalisées par les développeurs, en analysant leur état d'esprit au moment de la rédaction du code source, grâce à la biométrie.

 

Faudra-t-il bientôt que les développeurs portent sur eux un ensemble de capteurs biométriques, pour permettre à leur employeur d'optimiser les ressources humaines ? Des chercheurs de Microsoft ont publié le mois dernier une étude (.pdf)intitulée "Utiliser des mesures psycho-physiologiques pour évaluer la difficulté d'une tâche dans le développement de logiciels", dans laquelle ils détaillent les résultats d'une expérience menée pour déterminer les endroits du code qui sont le plus susceptibles de contenir des bugs ou des erreurs de stratégie d'approche.

Terrapattern visual #searchtool for satellite imagery by Golan Levin, David Newbury, Kyle McDonald...

Terrapattern visual #searchtool for satellite imagery by Golan Levin, David Newbury, Kyle McDonald... | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

We present the alpha version of Terrapattern: "similar-image search" for satellite photos. It's an open-source tool for discovering "patterns of interest" in unlabeled satellite imagery—a prototype for exploring the unmapped, and the unmappable.

 

Terrapattern provides an open-ended interface for visual query-by-example. Simply click an interesting spot on Terrapattern's map, and it will find other locations that look similar. Our tool is ideal for locating specialized 'nonbuilding structures' and other forms of soft infrastructure that aren't usually indicated on maps.

There has never been a more exciting time to observe human activity and understand the patterns of humanity’s impact on the world. We aim to help people discover such patterns in satellite imagery, with the help of deep learning machine vision techniques.

Blockchain is a shared, immutable ledger for recording the history of transactions. It fosters a new generation of transactional applications that establish trust, accountability and transparency.

 

IBM Blockchain has joined The Linux Foundation's Hyperledger Project to evolve and improve upon earlier forms of blockchain. Instead of having a blockchain that is reliant on the exchange of cryptocurrencies with anonymous users on a public network (e.g. Bitcoin), a blockchain for business provides a permissioned network, with known identities, without the need for cryptocurrencies.

Machine Learning is Fun!
The world’s easiest introduction to #MachineLearning by Adam Geitgey

Machine Learning is Fun!<br/>The world’s easiest introduction to #MachineLearning by Adam Geitgey | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Have you heard people talking about machine learning but only have a fuzzy idea of what that means? Are you tired of nodding your way through conversations with co-workers? Let’s change that!


This guide is for anyone who is curious about machine learning but has no idea where to start. I imagine there are a lot of people who tried reading the wikipedia article, got frustrated and gave up wishing someone would just give them a high-level explanation. That’s what this is.

 

The goal is be accessible to anyone — which means that there’s a lot of generalizations. But who cares? If this gets anyone more interested in ML, then mission accomplished.

 

What is machine learning?

Machine learning is the idea that there are generic algorithms that can tell you something interesting about a set of data without you having to write any custom code specific to the problem. Instead of writing code, you feed data to the generic algorithm and it builds its own logic based on the data.

 

For example, one kind of algorithm is a classification algorithm. It can put data into different groups. The same classification algorithm used to recognize handwritten numbers could also be used to classify emails into spam and not-spam without changing a line of code. It’s the same algorithm but it’s fed different training data so it comes up with different classification logic...

Le design des programmes | Thèse de Anthony Masure (2014)

Le design des programmes | Thèse de Anthony Masure (2014) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
Cette thèse interroge le design depuis les pratiques de programmation en montrant qu’elles ne se réduisent pas à une industrie des programmes, qui empêche les inventions de naître tout à fait. Pour cela, elle confronte au sein d’une lecture non linéaire cinq moments de l’histoire du numérique (depuis Vannevar Bush en 1945, dont une traduction inédite est proposée en appendice, jusqu’aux usages contemporains du site web GitHub) à quatre formulations conceptuelles issues d’un corpus philosophique. Le choix d’auteurs qui n’ont pas directement voué leurs réflexions au design (comme Jacques Derrida, Hannah Arendt ou Walter Benjamin) permet de déconstruire un certain nombre de discours entourant la réception des technologies dites nouvelles. Critiquant nombre d’usages faits des notions de conception et de projet et s’appuyant finalement sur Gilbert Simondon, cette thèse s’intéresse à ce qui n’est pas prévisible dans les programmes. Elle soutient cinq axes ou directions pour une recherche dans le champ concerné : décentrer, authentifier, appareiller, traduire et désarticuler. La plausibilité de ces façons de faire du numérique, encore à l’état d’ébauche dans les productions contemporaines, peut intéresser les designers au-delà des spécialistes. Elle est avérée en fin d’ouvrage dans la description d’une fiction curatoriale.

Internet users, you are now invited on Webrecorder.io > 5GB of free space. Get archiving! via @Rhizome | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Rhizome is pleased to announce the first full release of Webrecorder, the free online tool that allows users to create their own high-fidelity archives of the dynamic web. All internet users are now invited to sign up for a free account with 5GB of archiving storage space at webrecorder.io.

 

Current digital preservation solutions involve complex, automated processes that were designed for a web made up of relatively static documents. Webrecorder, in contrast, can capture social media and other dynamic content, such as embedded video and complex javascript, while putting the user at the center of the archiving process.

 

This release offers a number of improvements to the fidelity, usability, and stability of the platform.

Now You Can Hide Your Smart Home on the #Darknet by Andy Greenberg

Now You Can Hide Your Smart Home on the #Darknet by Andy Greenberg | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

THE PRIVACY SOFTWARE Tor has aided everything from drug dealing marketplaces to whistleblowing websites in evading surveillance on the darknet. Now that same software can be applied to a far more personal form of security: keeping hackers out of your toaster.

 

On Wednesday, the privacy-focused non-profit Guardian Project, a partner of the Tor Project that maintains and develops the Tor anonymity network, announced a new technique it’s developed to apply Tor’s layers of encryption and network stealth to protecting so-called “Internet of things” or “smart home” devices. That growing class of gadgets, ranging from refrigerators to lightbulbs to security cameras, are connected to the Internet to make possible new forms of remote management and automation. They also, as the security research community has repeatedly demonstrated, enable a new breed of over-the-Internet attacks, such as the rash of hackers harassing infants via baby monitors or the potential for hackers to steal your Gmail password from your fridge.

Vulkan Renderer - support to openFrameworks by Tim Gfrerer

Vulkan Renderer - support to openFrameworks by Tim Gfrerer | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Vulkan is a next generation graphics API, and set to succeed OpenGL and GLES. It’s a much more explicit API. It is a fundamental shift in rendering, and it allows a level of control and performance previously only possible on games consoles. With its sister standard SPIR-V it can revolutionise drawing, shading and compute.

It was released on February 16 this year, and there is already fairly solid driver support from most manufacturers.

  • In terms of programming, it’s like switching from JavaScript to C++: potentially faster, more explicit — and there's a chance you end up with undefined behaviour.

  • In terms of motoring, it's like trading in a Toyota for an unlimited supply of Ferrari car parts. You could build something to put the A-Team to shame, but it might take a really long time to hit the road.

  • In terms of child’s play, its like moving from Duplo to Lego. You can build things with much more attention to detail, but you might miss how quickly you could have built a simple wall with cruder bricks.

#Hack the Brain 2016 /// Hackathon: 24-26 June in Amsterdam // #EEG #hackthebrain | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

"Hacking the brain is both challenging as well as doable, both philosophical as well as practical, both artistic as well as business, both scientific as well as futuristic.”

This is the century to unravel the working mechanisms of our mysterious brains. Brain cells and structures as well as live neuronal activity and –connections can be visualised with techniques such as EEG, fMRI, and PET. While neuronal activity can be influenced by techniques like transcranial- and deep brain stimulation.

There is an increasing market for consumer brain-imaging devices. Open the papers or the tv-guide, browse through forums and podcasts: everybody is talking about the brain – how it works, how it develops, how we use it and how we can use it better. With our hackathons we invite anyone – from the most experienced bio-hacker to the curious neuroscientist and the hardcore programmer to the eccentric artist – to tackle their own brainy ideas.
