Twitter Mood Predicts The Stock Market There’s no shortage of people who say they know how to predict whether the stock market will go up or down on a particular day. But there are few, if any, who can do it consistently better than tossing a coin. For many economists that’s easy to explain. Conventional economic theory holds that the movement of prices in a perfect market should follow a random walk and should be impossible to predict with an accuracy greater than 50 per cent. There’s a fly in this economic ointment, however. Numerous studies show that stock market prices are not random and this implies that they ought to be predictable.

Commotion, le projet d'un Internet hors de tout contrôle LE MONDE | • Mis à jour le | Par Yves Eudes Un immeuble confortable et anonyme, au cœur de Washington, à quelques rues de la Maison Blanche. Dans une enfilade de bureaux au fond du 5e étage, une vingtaine de jeunes gens, surtout des garçons, travaillent discrètement, dans une ambiance à la fois studieuse et décontractée.

Outernet | Information for the World from Outer Space

There are more WiFi devices in the world than people, yet only 60% of the global population has access to the wealth of knowledge found on the Internet. The price of smartphones and tablets is dropping year after year, but the price of data in many parts of the world continues to be unaffordable for the majority of global citizens. In some places, such as rural areas and remote regions, cell towers and Internet cables simply don't exist. The primary objective of the Outernet is to bridge this global information divide. Broadcasting data allows citizens to reduce their reliance on costly Internet data plans in places where monthly fees are too expensive for average citizens.

Zeiss Cinemizer OLED with head-tracking hands-on (video) Zeiss Cinemizer OLED with head-tracking hands-on (video) The Carl Zeiss Cinemizer OLED has been a long time in the making -- we first heard about the video glasses at Macworld in 2008 -- but the company has yet to push the head-mounted display past the prototype phase. We stumbled upon Zeiss' booth here at CeBIT, where we found a version of the glasses that look mighty similar to the mock-up we saw in marketing materials from 2010, but are now equipped with a pair of head-tracking modules to expand the yet-to-be released marvel's practicality. With head-tracking now on board, the Cinemizer can theoretically appeal to gamers, architects, even educators, who can use the glasses in the classroom.

'SixthSense' is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world around us with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information. We've evolved over millions of years to sense the world around us. When we encounter something, someone or some place, we use our five natural senses to perceive information about it; that information helps us make decisions and chose the right actions to take.

ATAP Project Tango – Google We can build it faster together. As we walk through our daily lives, we use visual cues to navigate and understand the world around us. We observe the size and shape of objects and rooms, and we learn their position and layout almost effortlessly over time. This awareness of space and motion is fundamental to the way we interact with our environment and each other.

Imagining the Internet
The Evolution Will Be Socialized From the actions of the Egyptian government to the policies of Facebook, the monopolies of central banks to the corporatization of the Internet, we are witnessing the potential of a peer-to-peer networking become overshadowed by the hierarchies of the status quo. It’s time for us to gather and see what is still possible on the net, and what, if anything, can be built to replace it. I have had a vague misgiving about the direction the net’s been going for, well, maybe 15 years. But until recently, it was more like the feeling when another Starbucks opens on the block, a Wal-Mart moves into town, or a bank forecloses unnecessarily on that cool local bookstore to make room for another bank. Lately, however, what’s wrong with the net has become quite crystalized for me. It started with the corporate-government banishment of Wikileaks last year, and reached a peak with Egypt shutting off its networks to stave off revolution.

HTML5

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. HTML5 (HyperText Markup Language 5) est la dernière révision majeure d'HTML (format de données conçu pour représenter les pages web). Cette version est en développement en 2013. HTML5 spécifie deux syntaxes d'un modèle abstrait défini en termes de DOM : HTML5 et XHTML5. Le langage comprend également une couche application avec de nombreuses API, ainsi qu'un algorithme afin de pouvoir traiter les documents à la syntaxe non conforme. Le travail a été repris par le W3C en mars 2007 après avoir été lancé par le WHATWG.
