2017 the world seems poised to advance incredibly with the climate change agreement and global agreement on the SDG's. But the usual stabilizing agent and international leader since world war 2 looks like it will vacate that role. What is next?

Automated Discovery = Data Smashing sounds like a big data technique that will work well for some types of big data set problems but you have to apply it to the right set of problems.
A new data analysis technique called "data smashing" has been invented by researchers at Cornell. They say it is a problem that a human expert has to tell a machine what "features" are relevant to look for in data for machine learning, and that they have invented a technique that can "estimate the similarity between the sources of arbitrary data streams" using "neither domain knowledge nor learning." Then they issue a press release that doesn't really explain how it works but says:

"Data smashing is based on a new way to compare data streams. The process involves two steps. First, the data streams are algorithmically 'smashed' to 'annihilate' the information in each other. Then, the process measures what information remained after the collision. The more information remained, the less likely the streams originated in the same source."

They say it works on electro-encephalograph (EEG) patterns pertaining to epileptic seizures, detection of anomalous cardiac activity from heart sound recordings, and classification of astronomical objects from raw photometry.

A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth casts a shadow that blocks sunlight that normally reflects off of the moon. A total lunar eclipse can only happen when the sun, Earth and moon are perfectly aligned. During the time of total eclipse, the moon will often look reddish due to red and orange light being scattered by the atmosphere. This eerie, harmless effect has earned the tongue-in-cheek nickname "blood moon." #LunarEclipse #BloodMoon #Eclipse
