It is extaordinart the degree to which mimicking nature consistently maps to better outcomes on all dimensions of value creation.
 
Combustion-Parity --- On almost nobody's radar.

Oil is doomed and not just because of all the things that we know will happen. We know solar is dropping in costs, and wind, storage, geothermal, and tidal power and more. But fossil fuels are really doomed because of all the possibilities of something else coming out of nowhere and contributing significantly to the transition to clean energy. Add up all those slight chances of game-changers in fields like fusion and converting Solar to different types of combustion fuels, factor in nanotechnology and the odds of fossil fuels lasting much longer than another decade go way way down..

"The days of drilling into the ground in the search for fuel may be numbered, because if Daniel Nocera has his way, it'll just be a matter of looking for sunny skies."
...
"Scientists have created a system that uses solar energy to split water molecules and hydrogen-eating bacteria to produce liquid fuels. The system can convert solar energy to biomass with 10 percent efficiency, far above the 1 percent seen in the fastest-growing plants."

"I have a great belief in the human mind to figure thing out if they do not have to live in terror"

#returntohuman An important presentation, but the last line, quoted above, may be the most valuable insight offered.

If you can't imagine this, it's not because your imagination has failed, but probably because you just don't want it to succeed. 
This is a difficult post. It's about someone with dementia. It's difficult because it asks you to imagine something difficult.

This from +Ferananda Ibarra​. A sustainable future state of energy + blockchain. #returntohuman
 
One of the articles about #blockchain I have enjoyed the most as it gives very concrete examples on how to create Smart Cities. It mentions key #flows that impact the economy at different scales. For example renewable energies

Imagine, for example, a city aiming to move to 100% renewable energy use. In a ‘normal’ grid, the majority of people draw energy, rather than produce it. If we come closer to a balance in those flows, we can begin to solve reliability and storage problems, major obstacles to renewable use. This can be accelerated through smart contracts recorded on the blockchain that immediately pay people for storage capacity in connected energy ‘sinks’ like refrigerators, water heaters, or electric car and bus batteries that can be used during peak use times. Another difficulty with bringing distributed renewable energy sources into the grid is the costliness of tracking and accounting for those ‘demand response’ inputs. In a smart grid supported by the blockchain, the cost to monitor distributed renewable inputs drops to near zero. Each IoT-enabled distributed energy source or sink independently ‘talks’ to the grid. This is recorded in real time in the blockchain, and the credit accrues to the of the owner of that asset in their cryptocurrency of choice, with no cost, mediation or delay.

Are legacy governance structures able to produce the results smart cities promise? Christina Bowen and Anish Mohammed elaborate on the future of smart cities and on how they might connect to the Blockchain and decentralized infrastructures. Cities provide infrastructure and governance to allow millions of people within a specific geographic area to live and work within a …

Fascinating glimpse int emerging ground effects and transformative threats to banks as we knew them. Death by obsolescence.



Back in October of 2015 I published a study of China’s tech platforms and their ability to disrupt finance. A lot has happened since then – in fact in Platform Disruption Wave you will find much of the detail. In a new report, written with Zennon Kapron – we polled over 1,000 millennials for their …

Prrhaps this should refer to "recognition" rather than "understanding", when when framing algorithmic accomplishments, no?
 
DeepText at Facebook. "With deep learning, we can use 'word embeddings,' a mathematical concept that preserves the semantic relationship among words. So, when calculated properly, we can see that the word embeddings of 'brother' and 'bro' are close in space. This type of representation allows us to capture the deeper semantic meaning of words. Using word embeddings, we can also understand the same semantics across multiple languages, despite differences in the surface form."

"DeepText is used by the AML Conversation Understanding team to get a better understanding of when someone might want to go somewhere. It's used for intent detection, which helps realize that a person is not looking for a taxi when he or she says something like, 'I just came out of the taxi,' as opposed to 'I need a ride.'"
DeepText can understand with near-human accuracy the textual content of several thousand posts per second, spanning more than 20 languages.

Very #Sembl / #hipbonegames this, I think. Great share Maestro +Bernie DeKoven​.
Here's a game I decided to call "Syncretics." It's similar, in spirit, to the color game, but more, shall we say, thoughtworthy.

American Mobile Glass is the best, hands down. I called the nationally know brand I shall leave nameless. It was on a weekend, and I left a message not returned until two days later, and was quoted a price a third again higher that American Mobile Glass. I got another quote at the same inflated price, and my wife got a quote from the dealer that was literally 4 X the quote of AMG. The installation too less than the estimate, the installer came to me, and the quality of the work and cleanliness of the job left no evidence of what had been done. Also, I had had a windshield replaced by another shop two years before on an identical vehicle, and the quality of the glass was horrible, out of the box compared to the glass installed. There were small imperfections visible within 24 hours on the first sunny day. The American Mobile Glass was perfect, pristine, and completely free of defect. Great great great!

We are big fans. Pizza is great as are the subs. We have ordered catering size orders of their sausage and peppers - I think it is the best in Bergen County, and had it devoured in record time by a half dozen football players. The baked zitti is also great. From a price and value standpoint, they have always provided great value and their pizza lunch specials during the week are the cheapest going. All in all just great. Owners are always friendly and personable.
