Internet Archive: About IA
The Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, the print disabled, and the general public. Our mission is to provide Universal Access to All Knowledge. We began in 1996 by archiving the Internet itself, a medium that was just beginning to grow in use. Like newspapers, the content published on the web was ephemeral - but unlike newspapers, no one was saving it. Today we have 25+ years of web history accessible through the Wayback Machine and we work with 750+ library and other partners through our Archive-It program to identify important web pages. As our web archive grew, so did our commitment to providing digital versions of other published works. Anyone with a free account can upload media to the Internet Archive. Because we are a library, we pay special attention to books.

New research shows how brain-computer interaction is changing cinema Over the past few years, we have seen the extraordinary development of neural prosthetic technologies that can replace or enhance functions of our central nervous system. For example, devices like Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) allow the direct communication of the brain with a computer. The most common technique applied in these devices, is Electroencephalography (EEG) – a recording of the electrical activity along the scalp. These technologies are mainly used in health, but our new research shows how they are changing the future of cinema too.

Suivant 16 skills students need to learn today to thrive tomorrow The gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more obvious, as traditional learning falls short of equipping students with the knowledge they need to thrive, according to the World Economic Forum report New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning Through Technology. Today's job candidates must be able to collaborate, communicate and solve problems – skills developed mainly through social and emotional learning (SEL). Combined with traditional skills, this social and emotional proficiency will equip students to succeed in the evolving digital economy. What skills will be needed most? An analysis of 213 studies showed that students who received SEL instruction had achievement scores that averaged 11 percentile points higher than those who did not. And SEL potentially leads to long-term benefits such as higher rates of employment and educational fulfillment.

Study using Monopoly board game proves that-advantages change our behavior - Krazy Wolf Social-psychologist Paul Piff who focuses most of his research on social hierarchies and how these impact our lives and society in general, has presented very interesting findings through a study on the game of Monopoly. In his TED Talk held at TEDxMarin, Piff discusses a recent series of behavioral experiments centered on the game of Monopoly. These experiments involved multiple “rigged” games of monopoly in which one randomly-chosen player in a randomly selected group was given certain advantages…such as: twice the money, greater ability to move around the board (more than two dice!), and more access to resources (higher bonuses for passing ‘go’).
