Synthetic Sensors. Abstract We explore the notion of general-purpose sensing, wherein a single, highly capable sensor can indirectly monitor a large context, without direct instrumentation of objects.

Synthetic Sensors

Further, through what we call Synthetic Sensors, we can virtualize raw sensor data into actionable feeds, whilst simultaneously mitigating immediate privacy issues. We use a series of structured, formative studies to inform the development of new sensor hardware and accompanying information architecture. We deployed our system across many months and environments, the results of which show the versatility, accuracy and potential of this approach.

Gierad Laput, Yang Zhang, and Chris Harrison. 2017. Need for New Hobby Leads to Stone Marbles. [Tom Lange] said he was looking for a new hobby when he saw a marble made out of stone and wondered what goes into making one for himself.

Need for New Hobby Leads to Stone Marbles

Fast forward three years and he set up shop at the Madison Mini Maker Faire to show off the tools he built and the fascinating glossy orbs he’s produced. Read on to see the awesome process he uses to turn a hunk of stone into a perfect marble. Silicon carbide polishing tool [Tom] doesn’t have a YouTube channel or a web page, but he brought along a photo board which documents the process (click above to embiggen). The first step is to choose your stone and cut it down to a rough cube before using a silicon carbide grinding wheel to take off the sharp edges and begin to get something round.

He then moves to a block of silicon carbide seen above where he has made hemispheres of different sizes using a diamond grinding wheel. PVC Pipe and Bondo Ping Pong ball makes hemisphere Sandpaper cut to fit With rough grinding behind him, [Tom] moves on to sanding. The Elian Script. Introduction The configuration of the Elian script consists of a formal structure (Part I,) and three basic structural principles Part II).

The Elian Script

Part I Formal Structure The formal basis of the Elian script is derived from positioning the 26 letters of the English alphabet within a nine-square grid. The letters of the alphabet are placed successively, starting at the bottom left corner of the grid at Box 1 with the letter "A", upward to Box 3, down to Box 4, up to Box 6 then down to Box 7, ending at the top right corner at Box 9. Each box of the grid has a specific linear configuration. If the alphabet only had nine letters, the form of each box could stand for a single letter. Fitting the 26 letters of the English alphabet within the nine-box grid results in assigning three letters to each box (as in a telephone grid), except for Box 9, with only two. The different letters within each box can be indicated by changing the length of the boxe's lines.

J'ai entraîné des rats à spéculer mieux que les traders de Wall Street. J'ai créé le programme « Rattraders » afin d'entraîner des rats de laboratoire à spéculer sur le marché des changes et des contrats à terme.

J'ai entraîné des rats à spéculer mieux que les traders de Wall Street

Grâce à l'aide de ces rongeurs, j'ai réussi à surpasser quelques-uns des plus grands gestionnaires de fonds spéculatifs humains. Mon objectif était de découvrir quels étaient les métiers à haute rémunération pouvant éventuellement être remplacés par des machines – ou par des rats. Comme beaucoup d'études sur ce sujet, mes recherches ont montré que tout travail qui ne nécessitait pas d'interactions humaines était remplaçable. Gabriel In The Dreamscape // Introduction. Winning Solitaire. La NASA de l’apocalypse.

Chers journalistes et les autres, J’aimerais vous raconter un truc.

La NASA de l’apocalypse.

L’histoire d’une histoire complètement vraie sauf que non, ou plutôt pas tout à fait mais quoique. Appelons ça l’histoire de la petite fille qui criait au loup alors que c’était plus ou moins une belette en short, si ça vous va. Le 14 mars dernier, Nafeez Ahmed, visiblement blogueur spécialisé dans les thématiques environnementales pour le Guardian, y publie un texte intitulé : “Étude financée par la NASA: la civilisation industrielle en route pour un effondrement irréversible ?” VerveDemo01.
