Ce qui est merveilleux chez l’être humain, c’est sa capacité fantastique pour l’adaptation. Il a pour cela un mode d’apprentissage par palier ou collectivement par révolutions.
Posted on 26. Mar, 2013 by karlkapp . Yesterday, I wrote about t wo types of gamification for learning. And one of the comments was about “when do I use each kind for learning.” Good question, here are a couple of ideas.It is not that they both can’t be used but here is what I think is the better of the two for each instance. When used together, the combination is the most effective for motivational and instructional outcomes.
A fundamental problem in distributed computing is to achieve overall system reliability in the presence of a number of faulty processes. This often requires processes to agree on some data value that is needed during computation. Examples of applications of consensus include whether to commit a transaction to a database, agreeing on the identity of a leader , state machine replication , and atomic broadcasts . [ edit ] Problem description The consensus problem requires agreement among a number of processes for a single data value. Some of the processes may fail or be unreliable in other ways, so consensus protocols must be fault tolerant .

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.

How many times have you started reading an email on your phone while commuting, and then continued it on your laptop when you got home? Or perhaps you saw a commercial for a new car and then used your tablet to search for the specs and see it in action? If these things sound familiar, that’s because they’re all part of the new norm in multi-screen behavior.
At the 2011 Google I/O developer's conference, Google announced a new initiative called " cloud robotics " in conjunction with robot manufacturer Willow Garage. Google has developed an open source (free) operating system for robots, with the unsurprising name "ROS" -- or Robot Operating System. In other words, Google is trying to create the MS-DOS (or MS Windows) of robotics. With ROS, software developers will be able to write code in the Java programming language and control robots in a standardized way -- much in the same way that programmers writing applications for Windows or the Mac can access and control computer hardware. Google's approach also offers compatibility with Android. Robots will be able to take advantage of the "cloud-based" (in other words, online) features used in Android phones, as well as new cloud-based capabilities specifically for robots.
Sometimes the only way to express a constellation of related ideas is by launching inDesign and losing an afternoon to the creation of a PDF that only I will ultimately find useful. Fridays in grad school I had Directing Practicum class. Four hours (9 AM to 1 PM) with all the other directing students. All on their way to discovering, with varying levels of delusion, whether they were cut out for directing in the American theatre (I, it turns out, was not).
Editor’s note : This guest post was written by Uzi Shmilovici , CEO and founder of Future Simple , which creates online software for small businesses . The post is based on a study done with Professor Eric Budish, an economics professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. It also includes ideas and comments from Peter Levine , a Venture Partner at Andreessen-Horowitz and a professor at Stanford GSB The idea of offering your product or a version of it for free has been a source of much debate.

There Google scientists created one of the largest neural networks for machine learning by connecting 16,000 computer processors, which they turned loose on the Internet to learn on its own. Presented with 10 million digital images found in YouTube videos, what did Google’s brain do? What millions of humans do with YouTube: looked for cats. The neural network taught itself to recognize cats, which is actually no frivolous activity. This week the researchers will present the results of their work at a conference in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Standard neoclassical economic analysis assumes that humans are rational and behave in a way to maximise their individual self-interest. While this ‘rational man’ assumption yields a powerful tool for analysis, it has many shortfalls that can lead to unrealistic economic analysis and policy-making. This Briefing distils many concepts from behavioural economics and psychology down to seven key principles, which highlight the main shortfalls in the neoclassical model of human behaviour. The seven principles: Other people’s behaviour matters: people do many things by observing others and copying; people are encouraged to continue to do things when they feel other people approve of their behaviour. Habits are important: people do many things without consciously thinking about them.

Evolutionary intelligence looks backward at our evolutionary history and forward to our evolutionary future.
