A la rencontre de Watson, l’intelligence artificielle star d’IBM. Quick, Draw! Google Earth VR : un tour du monde en réalité virtuelle. Puisqu'il est quasiment impossible de voyager dans le monde entier, Google propose de le faire de chez soi, par l'intermédiaire d'un casque de réalité virtuelle, en l'occurrence le Vive d'HTC, et d'une application dédiée, Google Earth VR.

Google Earth VR : un tour du monde en réalité virtuelle

L'idée est de pouvoir totalement s'immerger dans un survol virtuel de la Terre, et d'admirer aussi bien les grandes villes que les sites naturels exceptionnels vus du ciel. Google Earth VR permet ainsi un voyage sur quelques 510 millions de km², ce qui offre l'embarras du choix pour profiter durant des heures d'un spectacle véritablement exceptionnel. Plusieurs visites guidées sont mêmes proposées par défaut : des Alpes suisses au Grand Canyon aux États-Unis en passant par le fleuve Amazone.

Hiring the Perfect IT Employee. Nothing can screw up a team faster than hiring a bad employee.

Below are five specific traits you should look for along with the steps you can take to gauge these attributes. Focusing on these and the CDEs will help you hire the perfect IT employee. Honesty Of the five traits, honesty is the most important. Separating these two in an interview involves a bit of game theory. Method 1: Stump the Chump This isn’t the most accurate of titles as you don’t actually want to make the applicant look bad. Method 2: Worst Mistake In IT, we have this huge fear when talking about a mess up that we’ve caused. Preventive If you are a regular reader, I would bet that you are a huge believer in the magician style of work.

Would you describe yourself as primarily reactive or proactive? La Blockchain, une révolution qui va changer le monde. Google boss warns of 'forgotten century' with email and photos at risk. Piles of digitised material – from blogs, tweets, pictures and videos, to official documents such as court rulings and emails – may be lost forever because the programs needed to view them will become defunct, Google’s vice-president has warned.

Google boss warns of 'forgotten century' with email and photos at risk

Humanity’s first steps into the digital world could be lost to future historians, Vint Cerf told the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s annual meeting in San Jose, California, warning that we faced a “forgotten generation, or even a forgotten century” through what he called “bit rot”, where old computer files become useless junk. Cerf called for the development of “digital vellum” to preserve old software and hardware so that out-of-date files could be recovered no matter how old they are. “We don’t want our digital lives to fade away. If we want to preserve them, we need to make sure that the digital objects we create today can still be rendered far into the future,” he added. The problem is already here. The Brain Is Not Computable. A leading neuroscientist says Kurzweil’s Singularity isn’t going to happen.

The Brain Is Not Computable

Instead, humans will assimilate machines. February 18, 2013 Miguel Nicolelis, a top neuroscientist at Duke University, says computers will never replicate the human brain and that the technological Singularity is “a bunch of hot air.” How Today's Computers Weaken Our Brain. At 10 P.M. on September 22, 1912, Franz Kafka, then a twenty-nine-year-old lawyer, sat down at his typewriter in Prague and began to write.

How Today's Computers Weaken Our Brain

He wrote and wrote, and eight hours later he had finished “Das Urteil” (“The Judgment”). Kafka wrote in his diary, “I was hardly able to pull my legs out from under the desk, they had got so stiff from sitting. The fearful strain and joy, how the story developed before me, as if I were advancing over water.” He later described the one-sitting method as his preferred means of writing.

“Only in this way can writing be done, only with such coherence, with such a complete opening out of the body and soul.” eBooks : livres augmentés ou livres diminués.

eBooks : livres augmentés ou livres diminués

Notre chroniqueur Calimaq se charge de nous les rappeler. La sphère intéressée par les mutations provoquées par le livre numérique est agitée depuis une semaine – à moitié par des rires convulsifs, à moitié par des grincements de dents – suite à la publication dans les colonnes du Monde d’une tribune intitulée “le livre face au piège de la marchandisation“. Émanant d’un “groupe des 451“, auto-désigné ainsi en référence au roman Fahrenheit 451 de Ray Bradbury, ce texte constitue une diatribe radicale contre le livre numérique, bien que ses rédacteurs essaient de s’en défendre maladroitement à présent.

How Browsers Work: Behind the scenes of modern web browsers - HTML5 Rocks

In this primer, I will explain how they work behind the scenes. We will see what happens when you type google.com in the address bar until you see the Google page on the browser screen.
