"Ease of access to the wealth of climate, weather, and environmental data NOAA is making available will have an enormous impact on researchers across many disciplines. The purpose of the Open Cloud Consortium (OCC) collaboration with the NOAA is to make finding and accessing this data easier for the academic, non-profit, and research communities, to enable scientific analysis and to drive discovery." #fl
The OCC manages and operates cloud computing infrastructure to support scientific, medical, health care and environmental research

"Nelson emphasizes CCRMA's interdisciplinarity, which stimulates creativity at the intersections of fields; its commitment to open sharing and users; and its pioneering commercial engagement. He shows that Stanford's outsized influence on the emergence of digital music came from the intertwining of these three modes, which brought together diverse supporters with different aims around a field of shared interest." #fl
This website provides access to archival documents related to Stanford's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA).

"We should extend Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics to support work on AIonAI interaction. I suggest a fourth law: all robots endowed with comparable human reason and conscience should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood." #fl
The common fear is that intelligent machines will turn against humans. But who will save the robots from each other, and from us, asks Hutan Ashrafian.

Leveraging Generational Differences to Reduce Knowledge Transfer and Retention Issues in Public Administration

"Two of the biggest issues facing large non-profits and organizations employing civil servants today are knowledge transfer from the retiring Baby Boomers to their younger replacements, the Gamers, and the retention of those younger employees." #l

Climate change: Embed the social sciences in climate policy : Nature News & Comment

"The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is becoming irrelevant to climate policy... the insights that matter are out in the darkness, far from the places that the natural sciences alone can illuminate." #fl
David G. Victor calls for the IPCC process to be extended to include insights into controversial social and behavioural issues.

"Innovation is not simply a technical matter but rather one of understanding how people and societies work, what they need and want. America will not dominate the 21st century by making cheaper computer chips but instead by constantly reimagining how computers and other new technologies interact with human beings." #fl
Alongside technical skills, America needs the creativity that a liberal arts education provides.

"As of 4/30/15, in order to eliminate the legacy management hierarchy, there will be effectively be no more people managers. In addition, we will begin the process of breaking down our legacy silo’ed structure/circles of merchandising, finance, tech, marketing, and other functions and create self-organizing and self-managing business-centric circles..." #structurednonhierarchy #fl
