The Tricky Business of Measuring Consciousness

The Tricky Business of Measuring Consciousness | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
THE ONLY THING you know for sure is that you are conscious. All else is inference, however reasonable. There is something in your head that generates experiences: the words you are reading on this page, the snore of a bulldog on a red carpet, the perfume of roses on a desk. Your experience of such a scene is exclusive to you, and your impressions are integrated into one unified field of perception. It is like something to be you reading, hearing a dog, smelling flowers.

4 Ways Cities Can Foster a Better Internet Economy - StateTech

4 Ways Cities Can Foster a Better Internet Economy - StateTech | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
There is no need to emphasize that the internet is the foundation for technological advancements necessary to build a bridge to the future for cities and their governments.

But connectivity isn't yet at its peak in most cities across the U.S., and many still experience huge digital divides that manifest in lost opportunities for cities and residents. In fact, a new report from the National League of Cities (NLC) and the Internet Association (IA) titled "Here They Come: A Look at the Future of Cities in the Internet Age," finds that the internet alone contributes an average of 3.3 percent to city jobs and businesses. Moreover, cities with stronger internet economies are more likely to have a higher median income as well as lower levels of unemployment and poverty

Google is adopting blockchain-like technology

Google is adopting blockchain-like technology | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it
Google is planning to adopt a blockchain-like ledger system, people familiar with the situation told Bloomberg. Google will use the tech, the report states, as a means of differentiating its cloud business from rivals. The company would also supposedly license the ledger system so that other companies could run it on their own servers.

Google was the second most active corporate investor in blockchain tech from the 2012 to 2017 period, according to CBInsights, just trailing after the Japan-based SBI Holdings.

The dry facts - Water

The dry facts - Water | Nostri Orbis | Scoop.it

"THOUSANDS have lived without love; not one without water,” observed W.H. Auden. He omitted to add that, as with love, many people have a strong moral aversion to paying for the life-sustaining liquid. Some feel that water is a right, and should therefore be free. Others lobby governments to subsidise its distribution to favoured groups. All this results in vast and preventable waste."

Para isso, só precisas de tirar uma fotografia focada e próxima do ser vivo que queres identificar.
