Are robot support workers part of disaster response in the future? Given the dangers involved, the answer logically, is yes. We have witnessed remote control video cameras on top of unmanned vehicles, aircraft, cables and submersibles. 

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has funded several interesting projects. One is DRC - DARPA Robotics Challenge in which teams test prototypes. 

The designs vary in size, shape and capability.

Glass and Facial Recognition

When we started the Explorer Program nearly a year ago our goal was simple: we wanted to make people active participants in shaping the future of this technology ahead of a broader consumer launch.  We've been listening closely to you, and many have expressed both interest and concern around the possibilities of facial recognition in Glass. As Google has said for several years, we won’t add facial recognition features to our products without having strong privacy protections in place. With that in mind, we won’t be approving any facial recognition Glassware at this time.

We’ve learned a lot from you in just a few weeks and we’ll continue to learn more as we update the software and evolve our policies in the weeks and months ahead.

The Internet is, no doubt, an amazing resource, but when do we need to step away from it to make sure that we’re using the information in the right way? How much time AWAY from the internet will ensure that we get the most out of it?

In this video, Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains, talks about how the Internet is influencing us, our creativity, our thought processes, our ideas, and how we think.

Take a look and tell us what you think.

I have been asked to speak about social media in emergencies at the “9th European Civil Protection Congress” in Bonn this week. I put some basic tools, documents and starting points together. Do you have more? Leaving for the conference tomorrow, so please leave tips under the blog post. Thanks!

Do you ever get the feeling people are sharing stories they themselves haven’t even read? Well, you might be onto something, according to research done by +Chartbeat. +Slate asked the analysts to examine how far its readers typically scroll down its articles. It found that for every 161 people who landed on a page, about 61 “bounced” – meaning they spent no time engaging with the page at all. Of the rest, most read only to halfway.

How often do you read all the way through an online article?
