Here's an interesting concept for a kind of computer that processes and stores its data at the same time, called memcomputer. This allows for more complex calculations at faster speeds and with less energy.

The whole idea reminds me a lot of quantum computers in that they'll likely be very good at solving very specific math problems that regular computers currently struggle with. For instance, the issue of identifying what set of numbers inside a much larger set adds up to a specific value, like 10.

"...rather than hassling with a back-and-fourth data-shuffle, the internal architecture of the memcomputer essentially sets up a giant maze for electricity to run through. To oversimplify whats going on: In the maze, you can imagine the entrance is a single number and all the possible exits are every other possible number it could be combined with. The maze is also constructed so that electric current can only jolt through to correct combinations (combinations that add up to 10, for example). In a single blast the memcomputer will set up a maze, have electricity run it, and store which the numbers combined with the first number to add up to 10."

Hope this new system works!
This computer works like the brain: It stores and processes info simultaneously.

+Bob Schlette yeah, the article itself mentions how they haven't solved that problem yet. But I thought it was interesting how, in theory, you could do the kind of complex calculations a quantum computer does but at room temperature.
I hope this tech doesn't fades in the dark as other hyped ideas 'cough nanotubes cough!'

Here's a thick but fascinating article (as well as comment section) about the philosophical and epistemological problems surrounding our Internet "democracy" and the "market of ideas" it has created.

In a nutshell, the way ideas raise and fall on the Internet has made it easier than ever to confuse subjective opinions from objective truths. I feel this has been a recurrent subject lately on the tubes, but it is nonetheless really interesting to see all the philosophical reasons and arguments to why this can be so dangerous.
In a democracy people are free to express their opinions and question those of others. This is an important personal freedom, and also essential to the very idea of government by discussion. But it has also been held to be instrumentally important because in open public debate true ideas will ...

+James Carlson I also remember making short films with my toys as a kid. And as for the video, I'm mostly impressed by how they had to move the camera around to follow the actors throughout the park. That was probably really complicated.

Here's one very, very cool article about an extortion ruse in a Nevada casino in 1980. I had never heard about this case before, and I was on the edge of my seat as I read the story unfold :D
It's a suspenseful tale of cops-and-robbers of the highest caliber. Involving a spooky box full of switches, a race across the state on a helicopter, hockey masks in the night, writing mistakes on a typewriter, and a landscaping business.
I highly recommend it!

Excellent story! Thanks for sharing
What a crazy extortionist. The whole story reads like a 70s story of 'for want of a nail'.

So I've just watched Clouds of Sils Maria and I highly recommend it in case you want a break from the usual action or drama in movies and carve instead for a more thoughtful and "talkative" experience were people solve things by talking and speak like adults for a change.

The movie follows veteran actress Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) and her assistant Val (Kristen Stewart) as they take a trip to the gorgeous region of the Alps known as Sils Maria. The movie revolves around the fictional theater play Maloja Snake, a story about a relationship between two women, one old and one young, which launched Maria's career 20 years ago when she masterfully interpreted the younger character.
But now in her 50's, Maria is offered to act in a revival of the play, this time in the role of the older character, something that goes against her nature and memories of that time of her life.

Lasting "only" 2 hours, the movie may feel long at certain points. But that's only because so much things happen throughout it. Maria's character grows and evolves in an organic and realistic way. Her relationship with Val is very cool and well-written, and both actresses have great chemistry on screen. You quickly realize that they mirror the fictional characters in the play Maria is rehearsing for, and this makes for some really interesting parallels and connections. It's also plainly fun and entertaining to watch them talk and rehearse and challenge one another. I wish more relationships like this, simple yet complex, respectful yet mocking, just hard to describe, were shown in movies.

In short, I really liked it, but I would advice people to not place your regular Hollywood expectations on this film. This is a character-driven movie that hinges in seemingly ordinary conversations across time. Characters make their points gradually rather than shoveling all on their faces right away. You could say that the plot elements rise and fall like slow-moving waves. Much like the clouds over the Alps :)

It plays it slow, but it plays it smart. And I loved it for it :)

This is amazing! Google did an experiment with their neural networks were they tasked them to search for a specific feature in an image, say, buildings or animals, but then asked it to enhance that feature before running the process again and again. The result is that a cloud which may have looked a bit like a sheep in the beginning starts to transform into a sheep. The results are both gorgeous and terrifying, Dali would be proud.
What I found most interesting is what happened when the researchers fed the neural network random noise (static essentially). To my surprise, the network managed to find patterns in it. And I think this talks volumes about what our own minds do. If you have a system that is trained to detect certain things, it will detect them, whether they're there or not.
