This seems like a cool approach, a computer learning automata to blend the content of an arbitrary photography in the style of a previously learned artistic image. The samples look impressive, I yet have to read the article in detail ..
 
Forget those preset and generic filter effect...Imagine you can apply all kinds of image effect based on the picture you like by Neural Algorithm of Artistic Style - http://arxiv.org/pdf/1508.06576v1.pdf

I wanted to continue my voluntary ad series about the places from our #Korfu vacation (cf https://goo.gl/dVWuUU) .

This time it is about our hotel:

Below picture was the every evenings view from both, our room and from the hotel restaurant. We had a few minutes to walk to the nearest beach (and actually a choice of 3 different beaches in walking distance), the rooms were simple and sufficient, they had really good Greek live music every wednesday and we really, really loved the friendly atmosphere and ... the food!
Pelekas offers a very beautiful and clean sandy beach that is ideal for swimming. Hidden from the usual tourist spots, Pelekas Beach, known to the locals as Kontogialos, is one of the most beautiful beaches in Corfu. Crystal clear waters with a shallow decline and smooth sand, looked after by ...

One of the Highlights of our #Korfu vacation:

The Greek cooking and baking workshop with Agathi at Βιόπορος.

It was so complete, peaceful, informative, relaxed and fun. In the end we had a walk to the nearby saltwasser Lake Korrision before we all sat and enjoyed eating the results. The place is really a bit distant from civilisation, i.e. only reachable via unpaved road alikes, but if you have a chance to get there, I recommend you take it and bring some time!

Nach 2 Wochen in Griechenland, nach Fahrten vorbei an langen Straßen mit wirklich beängstigend vielen geschlossenen Firmen, einer Zeit des Bargelds und der eingehenden Beobachtung von Supermarktkassierinnen in praktisch leeren Supermärkten, die mehr Zeit damit verbrachten, Mehrwertsteuersätze einzugeben, als Waren zu kassieren, ... nach diesen und mehr Beobachtungen, kommt es mir wirklich genau so vor ...

Ja, mich beschlich auch das Gefühl, dass sei alles nur noch eine riesige Improvisation. Wenn die Struktur in einem Land wie Deutschland so zusammenbräche, würde Chaos und Hunger ausbrechen. Es ist quasi fast dem mediteranen Klima und einer Jahrhunderte gepflegten völlig lokalen Art des Wirtschaftens zu verdanken, dass Griechenland versorgt und zivilisiert bleibt. Was die EU dazu in den letzten Jahren beigetragen haben könnte, war zumindest nicht ersichtlich.

There is only one chance to make a good first impression.

Turns out, it is similar with developing new things. If you let this new thing go as a provisional, proof of concept, half done piece, it will never become good again. The best it can become is a more or less patched and fixed privisional something.

While I vote for giving people a second choice, I'd rather see more things gotten right the first time they surface in the public.

Gut, dass es mal jemand studiert hat , denn dann kann sich keiner mehr rausreden, es wäre nichts bekannt.

Es ist ja so, dass die rigorose Anwendung monetärer Optimierung der Welt im Kleinen (uns) und im Großen (die Umwelt) so etwas wie chronischen Verschleiß produzieren kann, der unter der humanen Wahrnehmungsschwelle bleibt. Der Verschleiß kann nur mit der  wissenschaftlichen Methode sichtbar gemacht werden.

Und die Leute, die jetzt finden, die Studie war sinnlos und verschwendetes Geld, sind  vielleicht ungefähr dieselben, die vorher fanden, da wäre ja nichts zu sehen. Irgendwie sind wir wieder auf dem Weg in die "Dark Ages" :-(

Wohl wahr, +Alec Cale
Bei Billiglohnsektor muss ich aber immer an David Graebers "Bullshit Jobs" denken, dass Gehalt in der heutigen Welt quasi immer Schmerzensgeld für sinnloses Tun ist. Ich muss also persönlich vermuten, dass ich in meinem Zivildienst die sinnvollste Phase meines Lebens hatte.

In Zeiten wo der Konsum kaum mehr steigerbar ist, weil die Welt es nicht mehr aushält, ist das moralische Axiom, dass viel Arbeiten gut sei, einer der Sargnägel der Menschheit. Cool muss sein, wer nützliche Dinge arbeitet oder wer mit wenig Arbeit auskommt. Workoholismus muss eine zu therapierende Krankheit werden. Ob ichs noch erleben werden?

A documentation about how newspapers used to be produced mechanically for a long time.

Personally this post comes just in time for me, cause we just discussed newspaper production these day and was I vaguely remembered, that I once visited a German newspaper as a child and saw these machines in action. It also reminds me of a later era of mine, when I poked into the intestinals of #TeX which once aimed to reprodcue these processes electronicals.

Finally complicated mechanical processes are fascinating anyway.
 
This is probably one of the greatest "how it works" films ever. On July 2, 1978, the New York Times printed its last edition using its old -- hot-type, lead-casting -- Linotype machines, and switched to the new computer-based systems. As they did this final run, they filmed the whole process, talked with people working on the systems, and showed all the details of how the printing process worked; and then a few months later, they did the same with the new system, to show how they stack up against one another.

The result is by turns fascinating and touching, as people who have worked these machines for decades say farewell to their clanking, mechanical friends.

(I came up in newspapers during the very end of that early digital era, where we would typeset electronically and layout partially by hand, and end up with "camera-ready art" for those electronic Linos which could produce presses. By the time I was in charge of laying out my own paper, the whole layout process was done on computers, and it felt like magic. "Cut" and "Paste" are so much easier when they don't literally involve cutting and pasting. But this will always leave me with a warm feeling for these old machines, and a slight sadness that I never had a chance to work in lead)

First of all I kind of love ants and watching ants.
Second this really is some interestng research about how they cooperate and manage to coordinate tasks with different level of information of different ants.
Biology originally shared to Science on Google+ (Science News (Pop Sci)):
 
A perfect teamwork

Recent study at the Weizmann Institute of Science shows how ants cooperate to move large food to their nest. Ants change each other every 10-20 seconds. Interesting that only few ants know right direction and steer the group moving while other members determine the speed. This model describes relationships between individuality and conformism in social animals. Dr. Ofer Feinerman: "In this system, the wisdom does not come from crowds. Rather, some individuals supply the 'brains', and the role of the group is to amplify the 'muscle' power of savvy individuals so that they can actually move the load."

I just remembered I used to share #robot stuff. Well, this is a very different little beasty.
 
Tiny Origami Robots
This simple microbot can walk, swim, climb, and even overcome obstacles, all while carrying a load twice its weight.

The only components of these tiny robots are some self-folding sheets and a tiny neodymium magnet. Its amazing self-folding powers can be attributed to the sheet of polyvinyl chloride embedded within each of the several prototypes created by its inventors to find the optimal material. The commonly found plastic contracts when subjected to temperatures of about 150° F.

Hence when the flat sheets are exposed to heat they fold up, enabling the robot to "come to life." Once that happens the tiny magnet attached to the back takes over by connecting with external magnetic fields. The scientists control the microbot's movements by applying the magnetic fields in varying sequences.

These prototypes were made from liquid soluble materials. One whose outer layers comprised of polystyrene dissolved completely when dunked in an acetone solution. Another was water soluble. The robot's ability to "*self-destruct*" is of utmost importance. That's because the hypothetical use of the tiny bot is to heal humans by zapping cancer cells, cleaning clogged arteries, or sensing foreign materials.

In theory, robots even tinier than these would be injected inside the human body in their flat form and transported to the area requiring care via the blood stream. Once there, the microbots would come to life using a yet to be determined heat source, complete their mission, and then simply dissolve. 

Shuhei Miyashita, a post-doctoral student involved in the robot's development notes that with the innovative design, "we complete the cycle from birth through life, activity, and the end of life." The scientists clearly have more work to do before the origami robot is ready for human use. However this is certainly a step in the right direction.

What other uses can you think of for this tiny robot?
