Le blog de Hiroshiman par Rifo Supercomputer "K computer" Takes First Place in World 日本語 June 20, 2011RIKENFujitsu Limited Achieves world's best performance of 8.162 petaflops to lead TOP500 list Tokyo, June 20, 2011 — RIKEN and Fujitsu have taken first place on the 37th TOP500 list announced today at the 26th International Supercomputing Conference (ISC'11) held in Hamburg, Germany. This ranking is based on a performance measurement of the "K computer(1)," currently under their joint development. The TOP500-ranked K computer system, currently in the configuration stage, has 672 computer racks equipped with a current total of 68,544 CPUs. 1. RIKEN and Fujitsu have been working together to develop the K computer, with the aim of beginning shared use by November 2012, as a part of the High-Performance Computing Infrastructure (HPCI) initiative led by Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). 2. When configuration of the K computer is complete in 2012, it is designed to achieve LINPACK performance of 10 petaflops. 3. Click to enlarge

Leading Edge and Learning Lessons As a Leading Edge school KEGS is a partner in a national network of high performing schools dedicated to improving understanding and implementation of outstanding learning and progress in schools through the concept of “teacher-learner”. Ten years ago KEGS was one of only 104 schools nationally to be awarded this accolade from the SSAT and in 2013 works as a collaborative partner sharing expertise with a national group exceeding 1600 schools. At the heart of a Leading Edge school are teachers who are passionate about teaching, and leadership committed to research evidenced innovation to raise achievement and improve learning outcomes. Passion reflects the thrill, as well as the frustrations, of learning; it can be infectious, it can taught, it can be modelled, and it can be learnt. It requires more than content knowledge, acts of skilled teaching, or engaged students to make the difference (although these help). Learning Lessons Volume 3 Volume 2 Volume 1

thierry ehrmann - blog Cybernétique, la science des systèmes La cybernétique est une science du contrôle des systèmes, vivants ou non-vivants, fondée en 1948 par le mathématicien américain Norbert Wiener. Notre monde est intégralement constitué de systèmes, vivants ou non-vivants, imbriqués et en interaction. Peuvent ainsi être considérés comme des "systèmes": une société, une économie, un réseau d'ordinateurs, une machine, une entreprise, une cellule, un organisme, un cerveau, un individu, un écosystème… Les ordinateurs et toutes les machines intelligentes que nous connaissons aujourd'hui sont des applications de la cybernétique. Un système cybernétique peut être défini comme un ensemble d'éléments en interaction, les interactions entre les éléments peuvent consister en des échanges de matière, d'énergie, ou d'information. Ces échanges constituent une communication, à laquelle les éléments réagissent en changeant d'état ou en modifiant leur action. Feedback et auto-régulation Les éléments d'un système sont en interaction réciproque. autre article: Study Skills Home > Study skills > Writing > Essay writing: research Research is the foundation of any essay – if you have nothing to say, how can you write an essay?! Research is a process though, with many components. Brainstorming is a great way to kick off this process. However, your reading skills are just as important to how well you research, as are your note-taking skills and an effective retrieval system . Brainstorming This is time very well spent as part of your research strategy. 1. If you begin your research without doing this, certain things are likely to happen: The authors you read will dictate to you: without your own ideas to protect you, it will be difficult, at times impossible, for you to resist the pull of their ideas and the persuasiveness of their arguments. Reading skills Most of us spend hours reading texts that we need not have read. For more advice, see reading strategies. Making notes The key to good note-taking is to make the structure clear. An effective retrieval system

Conscience artificielle Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Conscience Artificielle (CA), est une évolution de l'intelligence artificielle dont l'objet tend à s'éloigner des aspects technologiques pour atteindre des problématiques philosophiques et métaphysiques, si tant est que ces termes aient un sens équivalent au sens humain dans un univers numérique. Dans les univers numériques[modifier | modifier le code] L'intelligence artificielle est une technologie existante depuis déjà plusieurs dizaines d'années mais qui tend à désigner des algorithmes plus ou moins complexes effectués par les ordinateurs, mais toujours sous contrôle et maîtrise de l'homme. En partant de ce postulat, on peut considérer que le système informatique devient conscient à partir du moment où il n'est plus totalement maîtrisé. En outre, le système doit également être doté de capacités de décisions.

Reading at 16 linked to better job prospects Policy 08 Apr 11 Reading books is the only out-of-school activity for 16-year-olds that is linked to getting a managerial or professional job in later life, says an Oxford study. Researcher Mark Taylor, from the Department of Sociology, analysed 17,200 questionnaire responses from people born in 1970, which gave details of extra-curricular activities at the age of 16 and their careers at the age of 33. The findings, to be presented at the British Sociological Association today, show that girls who had read books at 16 had a 39 per cent probability of a professional or managerial post at 33, but only a 25 per cent chance if they had not. None of the other activities, such as taking part in sports or activities, socialising, going to museums or galleries or to the cinema or concerts, or practical activities like cooking or sewing, were found to have a significant effect on their careers. Mr Taylor said: ‘According to our results there is something special about reading for pleasure.

A College Guide to Eating Healthy This is a guest post from Thomas Frank. Have you said any of these things recently? “I’ve got eight tests this week, so I’ve decided to only sleep every other night.”“We can totally get all of our meals free if we just join every club.”“It’s 3:00 a.m. – let’s take the mattresses off of our beds and mattress joust out in the hallway.” If so, you probably fall into the same group of Nerd Fitness readers that I’m in: college students. For students like me, Nerd Fitness is a gold mine of awesome information and motivation. We students have one area that presents us with a greater challenge than most others face, and that’s eating well. College just seems to throw up a lot of roadblocks to healthy eating that non-students don’t seem to have to deal with, including super-tight budgets, lack of cooking tools, and ridiculously busy schedules. I’m going to help you break through these roadblocks. Foundation: The “Doing Good” Mindset Meats: I tend to use chicken as my primary meat. I think there is.
