I believe we are at the beginning of yet another such revolution. I call that the Cognitive Era." "I think that we as human beings are now getting overwhelmed with respect to our cognitive capabilities," commented Dr. Banavar. "Just trying to understand all of the data around us, all of the knowledge around us and trying make the right decisions about our daily lives, about our jobs, is getting really hard. We need to augment our cognition with the cognition of machines." Dr. Banavar gave the example that we all know that doctors can often be years behind the latest research and data. "What if your doctor had the benefit of a machine that could help do this kind of analysis before they make their final decision?" View Dr. Banavar's lecuture in its entirety starting at the 18:10 mark: The post The Cognitive Era is the Next Societal Revolution That Will Change the World appeared first on WebProNews .

Each RFID reader only spits out timestamps and the identity of the bee, so if you want to know what the bees are doing, you need to parse all that information and turn it into things we can understand, Russell says. For example, how many trips a forager makes per day. While honey bees are known to be very consistent and tend to stick to one species of plant and often one type of reward over a day, a phenomenon known as floral consistency, bumble bees were thought to be more generalist. So researchers were somewhat surprised to find the bees tend to make strings of foraging runs for the same reward on a given day. One possible explanation is that foraging for pollen versus nectar requires very different behavioral regimes, so it makes sense for them to focus on one at a time, he says. Also, in many cases pollen and nectar are not both available from the same plant species.

In an attempt to better compete with low-cost airlines, major air carriers like American Airlines, Delta and United have been rolling out basic economy fares no-frills fares that charge fees for amenities that would otherwise come standard, like seat assignments or the right to use the overhead bin space, for example. But this unbundling has also made it difficult for... Read More

The meeting also gives you all a chance to catch up on how you spent your time off and how to prioritize the week ahead. Make sure you’re holding a productive meeting by keeping the meeting short and making sure to recap with follow-up materials via email. CT Business Travel also suggests setting an agenda ahead of time so everyone in the group can prepare to talk, which is especially helpful for introverts who may not feel as comfortable speaking off-the-cuff in a group. Here’s an example of what the HubSpot content team’s meeting agendas look like, with a helpful breakdown of how much time will be spent on each topic for maximum efficiency: 6) Prioritize your to-do list. Take a look at your to-do list. It’s probably a bit longer than on a typical Monday, right? Sort through your list and determine what needs to be prioritized and what can wait until the next day.

Using “so” correctly in a sentence, for example, indicates causality, an idea that’s just as important in math and science as it is in more writing-intensive disciplines like social studies and English. HOW PROGRESSIVE MASTERY WORKS The WIT activities are not a set curriculum meant to be used exactly the same way by every teacher. Instead, Scharff explained that teachers are trained in the strategies and then use their own discretion to introduce different approaches, according to their instructional goals. For the program to work well, it’s important for teachers to be able to pick out and focus on writing structures that indicate a way of thinking, no matter the discipline. For example, distinguishing general ideas from specific statements is a crucial skill that comes up when students write paragraphs that include a topic sentence, along with supporting sentences that back up the topic sentence.

TBWA\Media Arts Lab is reorganizing and introducing a new operating model to keep pace with the way people consume media and content,” an agency spokesperson told Adweek. “This will result in a reduction in areas such as localization and further investment in areas such as digital, social, data analytics, content creation and a more diverse set of strategic skills. We will also have greater integration with media partners at OMD.” A recent example of Apple's regional work is " Meu Bloco na Rua ," a Brazilian Carnival -focused video promoting Portrait Mode on iPhone 7 Plus. Apple shared the 90-second spot on its YouTube account in Brazil last week ahead of the Carnival beginning on the afternoon of February 24. Apple has also shared an increasing number of 15-second ads on its YouTube channel for products such as the iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods.

Sourced right, your clone would be under 50 bucks. Not bad. The simulator comes with a bunch of software for you to try out and even games like Kill-the-Bit and Pong. BASIC and Assembler example programs are included in the emulator software and can easily be loaded. In addition, the simulator includes some extra functions and built-in software for the Altair which are accessible via the AUX1/AUX2 switches on the front panel (those were included but not used on the original Altair). From starting different games to mount disks in an emulated disk drive, there are just too many functions to describe here. You can take a look at the simulator documentation for more information. In case you don't know already, here's how to play Kill-the-Bit: Filed under: Arduino Hacks

I cannot participate in an event that will give a platform to such a person. In response, Maher released his own statement. Liberals will continue to lose elections as long as they follow the example of people like Mr. Scahill whose views veer into fantasy and away from bedrock liberal principles like equality of women, respect for minorities, separation of religion and state, and free speech. If Mr. Yiannopoulos is indeed the monster Scahill claims and he might be nothing could serve the liberal cause better than having him exposed on Friday night.

The Properties of Space *This is an older article that originates from Collective Evolution, a couple of updates have been made. Science works best when in harmony with nature. If we put these two together, we can discover great technologies that can only come about when the consciousness of the planet is ready to embrace them. One example is free energy, also known as zero-point energy, which utilizes the substance that exists all around us and converts it into usable energy. This would give us a limitless source of energy, and would practically wipe out all poverty on the planet. (more on this later in the article) The properties of space have been postulated by many, from ancient Vedic philosophy, Eastern Mystics, various ancient civilizations throughout human history all the way to Descartes, Einstein, Newton and more.

In each episode Ashlee Vance visits a different country and meets local start-ups and tech firms. And for tech nerds, it makes for fascinating viewing as it shows what is going on not just in Silicon Valley, but elsewhere. For example, in one Russian city that was deliberately created for scientists in the Soviet era there is now a cutting edge drone company building devices that can compete with the rest of the world. So why doesnt Apple play to its strengths and send a filmmaker around the world to capture whats going on? Hey, they might even discover some start-ups to buy along the way. 2. W1A W1A was a critical hit for the BBC when it aired in 2014. The satirical mockumentary brilliantly pierced the pomposity of the corporation that commissioned it as it followed the work of Head of Values Ian Fletcher (Hugh Bonneville) at BBC Broadcasting House itself.

The actual character recognition is handled by training the net using example input data writing numbers over and over again on the chalkboard. Once the equation is recognized, it isn't hard to solve the actual equation (which is not done via neural net, as far as we can tell). We've seen neural nets doing speech generation , flying helicopters , and even spraying unwanted cats . Thanks for the tip [John]. Filed under: software hacks

As we head into GDC 2017, its time to see if VR gaming has some legs, or if the novelty is starting to wear off. Theres still evidence to support the former, with games like Rock Band VR and Star Trek: Bridge Crew around the corner, but were hoping more developers step up with their own spin on VR gaming. An example of one such firm is Manus VR, which last year revealed virtual reality-enabled gloves that offered players a chance to get a literal grip on the digitized world around them. We also think Facebook has something similar in the oven for Oculus, as recent photos show none other than CEO Mark Zuckerberg playing around with some sort of prototype VR glove. In addition to new spins on a now-familiar tech, we would also love to see what mainstays like Oculus and HTC have in mind for the future of their headsets - perhaps a tease of an Oculus Rift or Vive successor? Speaking of headsets and new hardware, lets hope.

There are a number of unique virtual reality accessories out there. Sure, theres your standard ones like the Oculus Touch and Vive Tracker which have very obvious applications in VR. But then you have some more nebulous products like, for example, the Kortex. The device popped up on IndieGoGo and claims to help fight anxiety, manage stress and help you sleep better after using it for 20 minutes during your next VR gameplay session. The Kortex straps onto any VR headset including the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift , though it looks like the Samsung Gear VR is where it will find the most success thanks to its low-cost ticket to entry. Back the device while its still on IndieGoGo and youll receive a discounted price and a copy of the game Lands End. Well let you watch the video for more specifics, but the idea here is that the Kortex uses alternating current via an electrode strapped to your temple to stimulate the production of serotonin and reduce cortisol in the brain.
