I've learned of the death of Seymour Papert, a pioneer of constructivism in education and inventor of the Logo programming language. Sad news occurred during my vacation.
World-renowned mathematician, learning theorist, and educational-technology visionary was a founding faculty member of the MIT Media Lab.

Rapid progress in energy storage technologies and batteries are accelerating the use of renewable and clean energy... We are talking about a 5 to 10 years horizon.
The world's next energy revolution is probably no more than five or ten years away.

Beyond a certain threshold, all road transport could switch from oil to electricity ... Meanwhile in Quebec, we're asleep at the switch with our politics that promotes gas and oil while we're owning one of the biggest infrastructure generating clean electricity in the world and having huge excess of electricity!
Could existing electric vehicles (EVs), despite their limited driving range, bring about a meaningful reduction in the greenhouse-gas emissions that are causing global climate change? Researchers at MIT have just completed the most comprehensive study yet to address this hotly debated question, and have reached a clear conclusion: Yes, they can.

NVIDIA has called out Intel for exaggerating its chip performance in neural networks training using old version of benchmarking.
Nvidia claims Intel used four-year-old data to make its new chips sound better.

+Guido Stepken The first intelligence to arise on a planet is usually artificial. Hopefully it will soon arise on this planet.

Just released... A Google Deepmind's paper which is explaining how to decouple neural nets by removing backpropagation using synthetic gradients. Once again they proved their mastery of the NN architectures.

Les progrès rapides dans les technologies de stockage de l'énergie et des batteries vont accélérer l'usage des sources d'énergies renouvelables et propres ... On parle de 5 à 10 ans.

Passé un certain seuil critique, tout le transport routier pourrait basculer du pétrole vers l'électricité... Pendant ce temps au Québec, on dort au gaz et au pétrole avec une des plus grosse infrastructure de production d'électricité propre au monde et d'énormes surplus d'électricité!

And Apple buys Turi (formely Dato) for $ 200 M, a startup founded by Dr Carlos Guestrin who teaches the Machine Learning Specialization's MOOC on Coursera. Anecdotally, Carlos Guestrin got his PhD from Stanford under Coursera founder Daphne Koller direction. ;-)
Turi, the Seattle-based startup company, is Apple's latest purchase in a string of acquisitions aimed at bolstering its machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities. These two technologies are changing how CIOs and administrators view new IT investments in the enterprise.

10 ML startups to watch according to InformationWeek. Nonetheless, don't know if all of them are using deep learning.
Machine learning is technology that trains software so developers don't have to code it by hand. The number of new companies in the category has grown exponentially over the past few years. Here are 10 machine learning startups worth a closer look.
