+Numenta Describes its Thousand Brains Model of Intelligence

"In our most recent peer-reviewed paper, A Theory of How Columns in the Neocortex Enable Learning the Structure of the World, we proposed a surprising and big idea. We said that cortical columns have more powerful recognition and modeling capabilities than previously assumed and that a single cortical column can learn models of complete objects through movement. This idea has large implications for how we think about biological and machine intelligence."

Welcome to Higher Education 2018

"Medieval European universities trained would-be clergy members in canonical law, theological discussion and religious administration. These institutions amassed huge repositories of knowledge, storing and indexing them in libraries, which became the focal point of the campus.

As European countries explored the world and established overseas colonies starting in the 15th and 16th centuries, universities evolved to train officers to manage those territories, study navigation across the oceans and look after colonists’ health. After the Industrial Revolution, colleges changed again, teaching workers how to use new scientific and technological methods and tools.

In the 21st century, the workplace is transforming once more; what businesses, governments and society need from education is shifting, and technology has made the brick-and-mortar library obsolete. It used to be that users of a technology needed to know how it works. In the early days of driving, for instance, it was important for a driver to be able to fix a car that broke down on the side of the road, perhaps far from any expert mechanic.

But in the current post-industrial economy, that has changed: Even a car mechanic uses a computer to connect to car systems to identify what is not working properly. Very few people need to know how these internal computer systems work; they just need to be able to interpret sensor readings and error messages."

Totally Unnecessary, and Incredibly Awesome

Asus ROG has concocted a solution for those pesky monitor bezels that tarnish an otherwise gorgeous three-monitor gaming setup — and it involves lenses and light refraction. The company, which stands for Republic of Gamers and exists as a gaming-specific sub-brand of PC maker Asus, has a new product it’s announcing today at CES plainly called Bezel-free Kit.

Rep. Jim Bridenstine Re-nominated to head NASA

He is a graduate of Rice University with triple majors in Economics, Psychology, and Business, and has an MBA from Cornell University. He is a former executive director of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium and is a Naval Aviator in the U.S. Navy Reserve where he flies the E-2C Hawkeye in Central and South America in support of the War on Drugs. Bridenstine is an Eagle Scout.

But because he believes the Mission of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration should be Aeronautics and Space and not the study of atmospheric CO2, he is being blocked by Democrats.

Failure is the Best Teacher

If everything worked perfectly we would call it "SEARCH" instead of"RESEARCH". Glad to learn there we no injuries. #research #science

So Worth Your Valuable Time

I get the impression that Minds is the young-adult version of an emerging social network in comparison to the hormone-filled adolescent mainstream-socials that require strict controls and curfews to keep them from injuring themselves and others. While Minds is a great handle for this collective intelligence, perhaps an apt nickname would be "Optimism."
