TOP25 Hottest Articles. Consensus (computer science) 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.

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. The processes must somehow put forth their candidate values, communicate with one another, and agree on a single consensus value. One approach to generating consensus is for all processes to agree on a majority value. For n processes, a majority value will require at least n/2 + 1 votes to win. Termination Every correct process decides some value. Validity Integrity , then Agreement. Open Letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. An appeal by participants of the Second International Global Future 2045 Congress to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon March 11, 2013 Mr. Secretary-General, We, scientists, public figures and business leaders from Russia, the USA, the UK, and Canada as well as participants of the Second International Global Future 2045 Congress (15-16 June 2013, New York) would like to bring to your attention a number of serious issues.

The world stands on the threshold of global change. Humanity essentially faces this choice: slide into the abyss of global degradation, or find and realize a new model of development, a model capable of changing human consciousness and giving new meaning to life. We believe that to move to a new stage of human evolution, mankind vitally needs a scientific revolution coupled with significant spiritual changes, inseparably linked, supplementing and supporting of each other. This type of research will be discussed at the Global Future 2045 congress. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. J’ai lu Graeber sur la dette et depuis, je balade mon banquier. Fight for the Future, defending our basic rights and freedoms. 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.

Evolutionary intelligence looks backward at our evolutionary history and forward to our evolutionary future. It assumes that life conditions will continue to change and the human species will change and adapt and evolve with such changes.

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).

On these mornings, I created several of these charts and graphs as a way to throw a lasso around the giant ontological smorgasbord of thoughts and opinions whizzing around the room. Anyhow, here we are. Featuring an illustration by the inestimable Dave Dowling, this is a menu of body part manipulations to be used by the actor while acting. PDF here. PDF here.

Pricing is always tricky. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs don’t give it enough thought. Free is even trickier and with so many opinions about it, we thought it would be refreshing to take a critical approach and dive deep into why some companies are very successful at employing the model while other companies fail.

Martin Ford: Google's Cloud Robotics Strategy -- and How It Could Soon Threaten Jobs. 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. One of the most important cloud-based robotic capabilities is certain to be object recognition.

In my book, The Lights in the Tunnel, I have a section where I talk about the difficulty of building a general-purpose housekeeping robot largely because of the object recognition challenge: In general, there are some important advantages to the cloud-based approach: CI: What is Collective Intelligence? Intelligence is not just something that happens inside individual minds. It also arises within groups of individuals and this phenomenon can be quite powerful. For a number of months Imagination for People has been working on software that will facilitate the creation of what is called ‘collective intelligence.’ In preparation for the launch of this software, we thought we would take some time to introduce the I4P community to collective intelligence (CI) and show off some of its benefits.

So what is collective intelligence? The widely accepted definition states that collective intelligence is the ability of a group of people to be collectively smarter than the smartest individuals in the group if they acted alone. This has potential for enormous benefits for society. We are examining the factors that are necessary to facilitate the emergence of CI. So if it’s not just getting a group of smart people together that creates this heightened intelligence, what is it? So how is this being used? iLiketoquote - Facebook Quotes, Love Quotes, Status Quotes, Funny Quotes, Life Quotes. Dashboard on loveme.do. Nexus: Global Youth Summit. Media Hell - Home. Pinterest.
