“Anthropology studies different cultures; mainly primitive, but it doesn’t think its own culture is primitive, unfortunately. There is no field that you can study today that isn’t trapped in the culture in some way. It’s hard to escape your culture.” – Jacque Fresco
Let there be Light! We are from the future!
this video kind of inspired me
I’m sure it will inspire you also
Life’s a dream, a sea of possibilities in an ocean of probabilities
of course the universe is infinite … there can be no other way
the possibilities of comprehending it lie beyond or current existential condition … nevertheless we could design an AI capable of reaching it … but ..should we? …
anyway .. enjoy !
we are the architects of the universe … the creators of our own universes – and this is just because everyone journeys the sea in their own way .. and chances are we meet sometimes. somehow .. within this vastness of space and time .. have you ever wondered what were the chances or how much it means just to be contemporary with some of the greatest minds .. now you do!
– kind of anticipating what the future decades will bring .. yes, I’m from the future also (:
have a great day!

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales has spoken out against a controversial ruling by the European Court of Justice that requires Google to consider information removal requests from individuals whose data its search engine has indexed.
In comments emailed to TechCrunch, Wales described the ruling as censorship of knowledge — pure and simple. “In the case of truthful, non-defamatory information obtained legally, I think there is no possibility of any defensible ‘right’ to censor what other people are saying,” he said.
He also warned the ruling may make it more difficult to make “real progress on privacy issues.”
“We have a typical situation where incompetent politicians have written well-meaning but incoherent legislation without due consideration for human rights and technical matters,” Wales added.
The ruling by the ECJ last month required Google to quickly put in place a process for fielding requests from people who believe that information it has indexed about them is outdated or irrelevant and should be removed…

40% of what a team does ends up as “process loss.” It’s overhead that wouldn’t exist if everything could be done by one person. Wasted effort.
Obviously, many projects require teams. But how can you create, manage or be part of a team that is more efficient?
Here are 4 things that can make a big difference in how effective your team is.

Google has released some new research about it efforts to maximize performance and minimize energy use at data centers through machine learning today. Long story short: Google is building superintelligent server farms that can learn from their past performance and improve themselves in the future.
Google’s AI data centers are a 20 percent project – the result of an employee, Jim Gao, working on something he found interesting that falls outside of his standard job description. Google is famous for allowing its employees 20 percent of their work time to come up with passion projects and things that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to work on. Thinking, learning data centers happened to be Gao’s main area of interest.
Gao researched machine learning and then worked on building models that take in a huge amount of data Google was already tracking about its data centers including how much energy is being…
