10 New Breakthrough Technologies 2014. Google Uses Artificial Brains to Teach Its Data Centers How to Behave | Enterprise. A central cooling plant in Google’s Douglas County, Georgia data center. Photo: Google/Connie Zhou At Google, artificial intelligence isn’t just a means of building cars that drive on their own, smartphone services that respond to the spoken word, and online search engines that instantly recognize digital images. It’s also a way of improving the efficiency of the massive data centers that underpin the company’s entire online empire. According to Joe Kava, the man who oversees the design and operation of Google’s worldwide network of data centers, the web giant is now using artificial neural networks to analyze how these enormous computing centers behave, and then hone their operation accordingly. These neural networks are essentially computer algorithms that can recognize patterns and then make decisions based on those patterns.

They can’t exactly duplicate the intelligence of the human brain, but in some cases, they can work much faster–and more comprehensively–than the brain. 053014-un-survey_chart.png (Image PNG, 760 × 654 pixels) U.N. global survey: Education top priority despite wealth. Education is a top priority among developed and third-world nations alike, beating political freedoms and gender equality, according to a new global poll. Of the more than 2 million people who responded to the “My World” survey, a United Nations project, two out of three identified education as their top priority. Topping the list of other priorities was better healthcare and an honest and responsive government.

Bottoming the list are political freedoms, phone and Internet access, reliable energy at home, and action on climate change. “Education has consistently been a top issue for people around the world, no matter their country, sex, age or socioeconomic status. This data backs up what the UN and experts have seen through related research and experience – that education is a key driver for development issues,” said Corinne Woods, director of the UN Millennium Campaign. The survey is an ongoing project using crowdsourcing to better understand global development issues and trends. Européennes : c’est quand même fou tout ce qui s’est passé avec le vote blanc.

Tribune La loi sur la reconnaissance du vote blanc était appliquée pour la première fois lors de ce scrutin européen. Résultat ? La mise à disposition de deux chiffres distincts (2,78% de vote blanc ; 1,26% de vote nul). Rien d’autre. En effet, le vote blanc, bien que décompté, n’en reste pas moins non comptabilisé dans les suffrages exprimés. Une nuance qui… compte !

Apparemment, tout le monde ne l’a pas compris. Le législateur s’est improvisé cuisinier. Ceux qui voulaient voter blanc avaient alors trois solutions. Fabriquer soi-même son bulletin Un bulletin blanc n’est pas qu’une simple feuille vierge. Grotesque et inapplicable pour les personnes en charge du dépouillement : comment penser qu’ils ont mesuré chacun des bulletins dépouillés ? Mettre une enveloppe vide dans l’urne Vous avez bien lu, il ne s’agit pas d’une blague. Appuyer sur la touche « Vote blanc » via une machine à voter Et ce, d’autant plus que les effets sont compliqués à mesurer. Bonus : la liste Citoyens du vote blanc. Consensus decision-making. Members of the Shimer College Assembly reaching a consensus through deliberation. Consensus decision-making is a group decision-making process that seeks the consent of all participants. Consensus may be defined professionally as an acceptable resolution, one that can be supported, even if not the "favourite" of each individual.

Consensus is defined by Merriam-Webster as, first, general agreement, and second, group solidarity of belief or sentiment. It has its origin in the Latin word cōnsēnsus (agreement), which is from cōnsentiō meaning literally feel together.[1] It is used to describe both the decision and the process of reaching a decision. Consensus decision-making is thus concerned with the process of deliberating and finalizing a decision, and the social and political effects of using this process.

Objectives[edit] As a decision-making process, consensus decision-making aims to be:[2] Alternative to common decision-making practices[edit] Historical examples[edit] Decision rules[edit] Loomio, l’appli d’Occupy Wall Street qui va vous aider à lutter. Si vous pensiez que le mouvement Occupy Wall Street avait périclité, vous aviez tort. En partie, du moins. Certes, il ne reste pas grand-chose de la mobilisation et du message politique. Mais son ambition de modifier en profondeur la structure du pouvoir et de repenser la participation citoyenne, elle, a survécu. Elle trouve corps dans une application web et bientôt mobile : Loomio. Au premier abord, le concept ne surprendra pas ceux qui fréquentent forums virtuels et réseaux sociaux : il s’agit de débattre, proposer, argumenter, voter. Vidéo de présentation de Loomio Benjamin Knight, initiateur du projet, a l’ambition de transposer cette dynamique virtuelle dans le monde réel : « L’avènement des médias sociaux a permis la mobilisation d’un grand nombre de personnes en un cours laps de temps, mais il manque aujourd’hui d’outils pour traduire cette énergie dégagée en une action collective durable : c’est le fossé que nous cherchons à combler. » Mouvement Occupy : plus jamais ça.

« La vision de l'entreprise en tant que forteresse... c'est révolu » (Isaac Getz) LA TRIBUNE - Les technologies participatives favorisent-elles vraiment l'émergence d'une intelligence collective et l'innovation ? ISAAC GETZ - Oui et non. Ces outils facilitent la collaboration et il est plus aisé de communiquer, de partager des informations, de discuter des opportunités de nouvelles affaires... Alors qu'avant, ces démarches se faisaient au rythme de réunions à répétition et au gré des feux verts de la hiérarchie. Avec ces technologies, tout peut se faire de manière plus horizontale et plus rapide.

Et cela ne dépend pas de l'outil, mais de la manière dont l'entreprise est organisée. C'est-à-dire ? Les entreprises fonctionnent avec des formes de management héritées du XIXe siècle. En outre, les employés sont déresponsabilisés : tout doit être validé par un chef, perçu comme plus intelligent, à tous les étages de la pyramide. Dans bien des cas, l'usage des outils collaboratifs pâtit de la réticence des managers à partager des informations avec leurs subordonnés... Collaborative Fund.

6 Shifts In Consciousness We Are Experiencing Right Now. Michael Forrester, Prevent DiseaseWaking Times Absolutely everything is a wave of energy and there are many new energies taking place on Earth. We’ve shifted consciousness, but we’re still using old reflections to create our reality. Abundance in all aspects of life is now much easier to achieve in the new vibration and a confidence in our abilities will soon magnify to great levels in the coming years. There will be some obstacles and challenges ahead, but know that the following shifts in our being are happening right now as all humans are born into spiritual wealth without practice. Vibrating frequencies build a virtual construct that makes you think you are in a physical world, but you are not. Think about all the areas of wellness, whether they be physical, mental, social, lifestyle, morals, the spiritual aspects of life (e.g. new age, Western religion, Eastern spirituality)…they are all enveloped and affected by energy. 6 Shifts in Consciousness We Are Experiencing Right Now.

Different school cultures approach the design of the classroom in different ways. Innova Design Solutions have chosen this time of education reforms to conduct research into the advantages of creating bespoke classrooms to fit the class’ needs. Intelligent interiors experts Innova Design Solutions have revealed the science behind designing and implementing a classroom that will engage the children and benefit their school performance. Detailing how an ergonomic classroom can help improve a child’s attitude towards and aptitude for learning in a helpful infographic, Innova stress the importance of shaping the classroom for the children’s needs rather than adapting the learning process to the environment.
