The Future of Artificial Intelligence - Up Next - YouTube
Back in the 1990s, Jeffrey Hawkins became both rich and famous when he invented the Palm Pilot—a device that in no small way ushered in a whole new era of mobile computing. These days, though, he’s on a far more ambitious mission. His goal: to build a machine that can think and reason on its own by mimicking the workings of the human brain. In this edition of Up Next, Hawkins opines on the both risks and rewards of artificial intelligence.

Making Computer Science More Inviting: A Look at What Works
“I don’t particularly think that the existing computer science curriculum has been effective for anybody. It needs to be situated in a real-world or meaningful context so people understand why they’re doing it. That doesn’t make it less rigorous — students learn the same things, but in a different way.” — National Center for Women & Information Technology co-founder Lucy Sanders // like applied science, building stuff, real world things as team projects over the course of the whole semester, away from the math, theories, dry textbooks, learning by doing - figuring it out by trial end error (failure),

Polished is Not Good for Education - Alan Mycroft, Raspberry Pi | You Tube - YouTube
[to truly understand something, you should build it, create it instead of absorbing literature about it.] // Devices are getting sleeker with their technologies more 'hidden'. This is bad for education, says co-founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation and Cambridge University professor Alan Mycroft. He tells us the 35-dollar computer's mission to make computing 'visible' and fun again.

John Carmack: “I just dumped the C server I wrote for a new one in Racket” | Hacker News
Carmack is constantly challenging himself. A trait common among masters. [...] // You know what gets things done and makes things easy to maintain? Boring ass code. IF statements. FOR loops. I mostly use Perl today. It doesn't get in the way. But getting things done is not trendy. That's where we are today. >> Reply "You know what's the problem with boring code? It's boring. This means its information content is low, and its abstraction level is low. This means that you need more of it to express an algorithm. [...] What makes code easier to maintain is clear separation of concerns and low impedance between code's abstractions and the subject area. This is, again, attainable in a number of languages (though expressive power and minimalism help make it even nicer), given the right mindset and skills. I suppose John Carmack possesses both. [...] [And in a reply of a reply:] " [...] Refactoring simple code to handle more complicated situation as it develops is so much better than ..."

march 2015 by asterisk2a | Frank Schirrmacher - Emigration Of Thinking Because Of Algorithms.
... apart from teaching algo's, people have to be taught too - to think about the third factor that puts everything in question. algo's are about the absolute solution to problem x. thus we become blind to factor x, the third factor, the black swan (see GFC, we are not in a bubble, houseprices never reverted back to the mean). Narrative, doubt (zweifel), intuition - vs - algo's outcome. Without narrative, what world is that, where we just have results only? No narrative (linearity), no grammar. What world is that?

VC Stewart Alsop: How I pissed off Steve Jobs - YouTube
Steve Job's last big gig was designing and figuring out the Apple TV, where TV is an app and the Device, what is known as TV is a super-size iMac. A Personal Computer. Plus they probably will make the iPad and Apple TV / iTV connect to each other so you can use the iPas and iPhone as 2nd Screen and do social media and surfing and sharing while watching TV. // Google acquisition of Nest Lab is also talent acquisition - Tony Fadell - a former Apple Execs. But he is a Product Guy and those are valuable, and Apple competed with Google for Nest Labs and thus Tony Fadell. Larry Page needs Fadell to improve Google's product line and future products and teach other Googlers 'product development, management and how to think about it correctly.' >> Android, Nexus, Google Chrome, Google Glasses, Google Car, Google ChromeCast. The big things that bring in the money. // // bn dollar companies have an asshole at their helm, that one that steps on people to get his way, get things done, rolling.

29C3 in Hamburg: Jacob Appelbaum spricht auf dem CCC-Kongress - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Not my Department", dafür bin ich nicht zuständig, das Motto der Veranstaltung. Das Zitat wird in einem Lied dem Raketenbauer Wernher von Braun zugeschrieben. Zwar ist er dafür zuständig, dass die Raketen starten, aber wo sie wieder herunterkommen - das sei nicht sein Fachgebiet.
