A Brief History of Children's Picturebooks and the Art of Visual Storytelling

Back in the fifteenth century, Leonardo da Vinci made the following remark about visual storytelling: And you who wish to represent by words the form of man and all the aspects of his membrification, relinquish that idea. For the more minutely you describe the more you will confine the mind of the reader, and the more you will keep him from the knowledge of the thing described. まさに攻殻機動隊。脳でコンピューターを操る埋め込み装置が開発中.

Ayasdi: Stanford Math Begets a Data Company. Like most of his peers, Gunnar Carlsson spends his time thinking about hairy, theoretical math problems.

Ayasdi: Stanford Math Begets a Data Company

It’s ivory tower stuff—he’s been a math professor for 30 years—which is just how the people in his field like it. “Mathematicians want to work on the deepest, hardest problems and get interesting intellectual results,” he says. In 2008, Carlsson, while continuing his work at Stanford, co-founded Ayasdi, a Palo Alto tech startup. Intel and Microsoft's Secret Weapon Against Apple. Intel and its partners are about to launch the biggest promotion of a new product category called Ultrabooks since the company’s wi-fi based Centrino launch early last decade.

And Microsoft is about to launch a major update to Windows called Windows 8 that introduces the new Metro touch user interface. Together they are critical products for the future of each company individually. In the case of Ultrabooks, I actually see them as the natural evolution of laptops and not revolutionary, as Intel would like us to think. Rather, they take advantage of the industry’s constant push to make things smaller, lighter, thinner and with better battery life. グーグル、検索エンジンの大幅改良を計画か. Googleが同社の歴史上最大の変更に着手しようとしている。 The Wall Street Journal(WSJ)によると、Googleは激化する競争と新たなテクノロジに後れを取らないようにするため、検索機能の完全な改良を行うことによって、他社に対するリードを維持しようとしているという。 Googleの検索担当エグゼクティブであるAmit Singhal氏がWSJに語ったところによると、新しいGoogle検索は「人間が世界を理解する方法」により近いものになるという。 変更は今後数カ月のうちにロールアウトされる見通しだとWSJは報じているが、「次世代の検索」への完全な移行には何年もかかる可能性が高い。 Googleの広報担当者が米CNETに述べたところによると、具体的なタイムラインは存在せず、準備が整い次第ローンチするというのがGoogleの哲学だという。 改良の計画は、必ずしも現行のキーワード検索システムを置き換えることが目的ではなく、より関連性の高い結果を提供することを目指している。

例えば、現在「Lake Tahoe」を検索すると、タホ湖の観光局のウェブサイトと地図へのリンクが返される。 広報担当者が米CNETに述べたところによると、Googleは基本的にGoogleのさまざまな側面の根底をなすインフラストラクチャレイヤ、または知識グラフを構築しようとしているという。 この記事は海外CBS Interactive発の記事を朝日インタラクティブが日本向けに編集したものです。 iPhone/iPadに込められた「見えないデザイン」 McAfee Hires Famous Computer Hacker To Break Into Cars.

Goddard Multimedia Item 10945 - Winter, Interrupted. North America's mild winter has people asking, "Where's the snow?

Goddard Multimedia Item 10945 - Winter, Interrupted

" In 2010 and 2011, North America had two snowy winters, punctuated by monster storms that shut down cities from Denver to Washington DC. But this year saw fewer big storms, and by early March areas of the U.S. usually still dressed in white were mostly bare due to below average snowfall and above average temperatures that made this the fourth warmest winter on record. The heavy snows in 2010 were partly caused by El Niño, which drew moisture from the Pacific Ocean and Gulf of Mexico that froze above the lower 48 states upon contact with sinking cold air from the Arctic. However, La Niña conditions in 2012 resulted in the Pacific Ocean's moist air being pushed to the far North, where storms dumped near-record snowfall in Alaska. Watch the visualization below, based on data collected by NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites, to see how snow cover has varied over North America from July 2009 to March 2012.

Researchers Unlock Formula By Mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan. While on his death bed, the brilliant Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan cryptically wrote down functions he said came to him in dreams, with a hunch about how they behaved.

Now 100 years later, researchers say they've proved he was right. "We've solved the problems from his last mysterious letters. For people who work in this area of math, the problem has been open for 90 years," Emory University mathematician Ken Ono said. Ramanujan, a self-taught mathematician born in a rural village in South India, spent so much time thinking about math that he flunked out of college in India twice, Ono said. But he sent mathematicians letters describing his work, and one of the most preeminent ones, English mathematician G.
