Electro Avenue | Electro Music for Galactic Funkateers The 'intelligent' advert: Scanners to determine gender before sending messages according to sex By David Baker Updated: 13:50 GMT, 21 February 2012 A street advert which uses facial-recognition technology to tell men from women is to be used for the first time. The electronic hoarding, to be unveiled on a bus stop in London’s Oxford Street this week, plays a 40-second advertisement – with a different message depending on the gender of who is looking at it. Only women will be able to view the full message, which is for a charity promoting female education worldwide. Intelligent ad: A unique new advert which deciphers your gender before relaying a message accordingly has been put up at this bus stop in Oxford Street, London The advert echoes 2002 Tom Cruise thriller Minority Report, in which billboards directly targeted individuals. According to the Independent on Sunday it will guess their gender based on the distance between their eyes, the width of their nose and the shape of their jawline. The campaign highlights that at least 75 million girls around the world are not in school.

The Lego Model « Force For the Future There are two types of organizations that are driving a majority of our economic growth: the startup and the large corporation. On one hand, we have startups, which are where the innovation is happening and on the other hand, we have corporations, which have the advantages of scale and abundant resources. We need a new kind of organizational structure that can bridge the gap, combining the strengths they each possess. I’ve come up with a model that explains how startups can gain the advantages of scale and have access to greater resources while staying agile and preserving their penchant for innovation. In this model you can think of a startup like a rectangular block and a large corporation like a tower. Towers only have to live as long as they are still creating increasing value for the customer. What we don’t want are companies trying to milk past innovations for all they are worth, through monopolies and legal manuerving. Why do large companies stop innovating?

Singularity: Kurzweil on 2045, When Humans, Machines Merge On Feb. 15, 1965, a diffident but self-possessed high school student named Raymond Kurzweil appeared as a guest on a game show called I've Got a Secret. He was introduced by the host, Steve Allen, then he played a short musical composition on a piano. The idea was that Kurzweil was hiding an unusual fact and the panelists — they included a comedian and a former Miss America — had to guess what it was. On the show (see the clip on YouTube), the beauty queen did a good job of grilling Kurzweil, but the comedian got the win: the music was composed by a computer. Kurzweil then demonstrated the computer, which he built himself — a desk-size affair with loudly clacking relays, hooked up to a typewriter. But Kurzweil would spend much of the rest of his career working out what his demonstration meant. That was Kurzweil's real secret, and back in 1965 nobody guessed it. Computers are getting faster. True? Probably.
