A picture is worth a thousand words

A picture is worth a thousand words
The expression "Use a picture. It's worth a thousand words." appears in a 1911 newspaper article quoting newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane discussing journalism and publicity.[1] 1913 newspaper advertisement A similar phrase, "One Look Is Worth A Thousand Words", appears in a 1913 newspaper advertisement for the Piqua Auto Supply House of Piqua, Ohio.[2] An early use of the exact phrase appears in an 1918 newspaper advertisement for the San Antonio Light which says: One of the Nation's Greatest Editors Says: One Picture is Worth a Thousand Words The San Antonio Light's Pictorial Magazine of the War Exemplifies the truth of the above statement—judging from the warm reception it has received at the hands of the Sunday Light readers.[3] It is believed by some that the modern use of the phrase stems from an article by Fred R. Another ad by Barnard appears in the March 10, 1927 issue with the phrase "One Picture Worth Ten Thousand Words," where it is labeled a Chinese proverb (一圖勝萬言).

Knowledge representation and reasoning Knowledge representation and reasoning (KR) is the field of artificial intelligence (AI) devoted to representing information about the world in a form that a computer system can utilize to solve complex tasks such as diagnosing a medical condition or having a dialog in a natural language. Knowledge representation incorporates findings from psychology about how humans solve problems and represent knowledge in order to design formalisms that will make complex systems easier to design and build. Knowledge representation and reasoning also incorporates findings from logic to automate various kinds of reasoning, such as the application of rules or the relations of sets and subsets. Overview[edit] Knowledge-representation is the field of artificial intelligence that focuses on designing computer representations that capture information about the world that can be used to solve complex problems. This hypothesis was not always taken as a given by researchers. History[edit] Characteristics[edit]

Color Theory A page from the "Causes of Color" exhibit... Color theory is a human construct. We need ways to define what we mean by color, and how colors can be ordered, related to each other, and adjusted to become new colors. Color theory attempts to meld together the facts we have about color in a way that gives us common ground to discuss and use colors. Color is a perception, a response of the brain to data received by the visual systems. What is real is that objects emit light in various mixtures of wavelengths. Early studies of the nature of color The detailed understanding of the science of color began in 1666, when Isaac Newton, using two prisms, observed that white light was composed of all the colors of the rainbow, and could be identified and ordered.

The Lost Doctrines of Christianity: The Secret Teachings Ancient writings were discovered in 1945 which revealed more information about the concept of reincarnation from the sect of Christians called "Gnostics". This sect was ultimately destroyed by the Roman orthodox church, their followers burned at the stake and their writings wiped out. The writings included some long lost gospels, some of which were written earlier than the known gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The Gnostic Christians claimed to possess the correct definition of "resurrection" - based on Jesus' secret teachings, handed down to them by the apostles. The existence of a secret tradition can be found in the New Testament: "He [Jesus] told them, ' The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. "No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began." (1 Corinthians 2:7) The New Testament talks about this gnosis (knowledge): "When you see your likeness, you are happy. Jesus flatly tells Nicodemus:

Numérisation du patrimoine culturel : catalogue Le ministère de la Culture et de la Communication œuvre pour accroitre les contenus numériques culturels accessibles gratuitement sur internet et pour favoriser de nouveaux usages numériques. Il a ainsi mis en place depuis de nombreuses années un plan national de numérisation du patrimoine et de la création. Par un appel à projets annuel, le ministère soutient des initiatives de numérisation de collections conduites par des institutions culturelles, des collectivités, des associations… Le ministère établit l’inventaire des collections numérisées en France, "Patrimoine numérique", en synergie avec le catalogue européen Michael. Il met aussi en œuvre l’appel à projets "Services numériques culturels innovants", dont l'objectif est de favoriser des expérimentations de nouveaux services culturels basés sur l'innovation technologique et l'innovation d'usage.

Sociology of knowledge The sociology of knowledge is the study of the relationship between human thought and the social context within which it arises, and of the effects prevailing ideas have on societies. It is not a specialized area of sociology but instead deals with broad fundamental questions about the extent and limits of social influences on individual's lives and the social-cultural basics of our knowledge about the world.[1] Complementary to the sociology of knowledge is the sociology of ignorance[2] including the study of nescience, ignorance, knowledge gaps or non-knowledge as inherent features of knowledge making.[3] [4] [5] The sociology of knowledge was pioneered primarily by the sociologists Émile Durkheim and Marcel Mauss at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. Their works deal directly with how conceptual thought, language, and logic could be influenced by the sociological milieu out of which they arise.

Gnostics, Gnostic Gospels, & Gnosticism A one-sentence description of Gnosticism: a religion that differentiates the evil god of this world (who is identified with the god of the Old Testament) from a higher more abstract God revealed by Jesus Christ, a religion that regards this world as the creation of a series of evil archons/powers who wish to keep the human soul trapped in an evil physical body, a religion that preaches a hidden wisdom or knowledge only to a select group as necessary for salvation or escape from this world. The term "gnostic" derives from "gnosis," which means "knowledge" in Greek. The Gnostics believed that they were privy to a secret knowledge about the divine, hence the name. (Huxley coined "agnosticism" on the basis that all knowledge must be based on reason. We cannot rationally claim to have access to knowledge that is beyond the powers of the intellect.) There are numerous references to the Gnostics in second century proto-orthodox literature. Here are some books about Gnostics and Gnosticism.

Art Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Pour les articles homonymes, voir ART. Cette conception de l'art comme activité autonome, comme production par des artistes d'objets que l'on s'accorde à trouver beaux d'après une préférence de goût, date des XVIIIe et XIXe siècles. Mais on considère souvent que l'art moderne et contemporain ont abandonné la notion de beau ou de style intemporel pour ce qui semble être, très généralement, des principes de transgression ou de rupture[5]. Au XXIe siècle, on assiste à la fois à la prolifération de la notion d'art (absorbant les civilisations anciennes, intégrant différents supports et obligeant à parler d'« arts », le tout avec des productions en expansion planétaire exponentielle[réf. nécessaire]) et en même temps à son dépassement par la civilisation du tout-écran, qui mêle tout. Histoire de la notion d'art : qu'est-ce que l'art ? Depuis au moins l'Antiquité, la philosophie s'interroge sur la nature de l'art. Afrique[modifier | modifier le code]

Information literacy The United States National Forum on Information Literacy defines information literacy as " ... the ability to know when there is a need for information, to be able to identify, locate, evaluate, and effectively use that information for the issue or problem at hand."[1][2] Other definitions incorporate aspects of "skepticism, judgement, free thinking, questioning, and understanding A number of efforts have been made to better define the concept and its relationship to other skills and forms of literacy. History of the concept[edit] The phrase information literacy first appeared in print in a 1974 report by Paul G. The Presidential Committee on Information Literacy released a report on January 10, 1989, outlining the importance of information literacy, opportunities to develop information literacy, and an Information Age School. The Alexandria Proclamation linked Information literacy with lifelong learning. On May 28, 2009, U.S. Presidential Committee on Information Literacy[edit]
