    Czy Chiny pokonają Amerykę? / Will China defeat America? – prof. Hugh White [napisy PL i EN]

    Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen! We record the new podcast of “Nowa Konfederacja” in the DoubleTree Hotel in Warsaw. Please welcome our special guest, professor Hugh White, Professor of Strategic Studies at the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre of the Australian National University of Canberra, one of the most eminent strategists of the modern world. He was also Deputy Secretary for Strategy and Intelligence in the Australian Department of Defence. Good morning, Professor, thank you very much for accepting our invitation to the interview. – Thank you very much, it’s my pleasure. I think we’ll begin with your essay from 2017 in your essay “Without America” you have formulated a…

    What Is a CMS? Which One Should You Use for Your Website?

    – What is a CMS, and which one should you use? We’re talking about it on “The Journey.” – All right, so today we have a special guest, Alycia from Sucuri. Thank you so much for coming on today. – Yeah, thanks I’m happy to be here. – Awesome, so we’re talking about what is a CMS and which one should you use for your website. Can you tell us a little bit about what a CMS is? – So CMS stands for content management system, and it’s basically an easier way to put pages live on your website, or blog post, manage your image media library, all that kinda…

    How Holo uses Wasted Computing Capacity

    It really is incredible the amount of wasted capacity that we have that we just don’t have any way to use it. Because when I’m using a Word application, I’m using my computer, but my computer has much more capability there that could be deployed without impacting my experience. So, this this idea is not new: NASA I think might have been involved there was something called “SETI at Home” Where people were you know searching for extraterrestrial intelligence Okay, and so SETI at Home was this thing where your spare computing capacity was used to help solve some problems with searching for aliens basically, and it was an all-volunteer…

    GPU Computing and Mobile – Intro to Parallel Programming

    NVIDIA is not only building high end, more expensive processors, like the couplers and like the GPUs you might buy for gaming, but it also really works very hard in the mobile arena. So how is GPU computing going to influence that? Well it’s not in our current shipping products but the strategy will be available in the relatively near future is to have the same GPU from the top to the bottom of the line. So eventually you will have a Kepler GPU in the Titan supercomputer and you’ll have a Kepler GPU in your cell phone, and you can apply the same programming models across that line and…

    How Did Science Get Neanderthals So Wrong?

    Let’s be real, guys, Neanderthals get a bad rap. We think of them as primitive and less developed than us humans with our smooth brow bones and tall posture. But the field of hominid development has been telling us for some time now that this is probably pretty far from the truth. And new research tells us that Neanderthals could have been…just as sophisticated as humans! Why have we been wrong for so long? A lot of our prejudices about neanderthals come from our somewhat mistaken interpretation of the fossil record. When the first neanderthal skeleton was recorded by scientists in the mid 1800s, the conclusion they came to was…

    How Copyright Works: Returning Works to Public Domain | Berklee Online

    The public domain is a gigantic area that contains music, literature, books, all kinds of stuff that’s free for everyone to use. We use the public domain a lot. Anything that Bach wrote is public domain, and it’s happened frequently someone would take music of Bach, and add new instruments, sometimes add words even though words weren’t there, and that’s all fine to do. That’s legal. That’s the public domain. That’s what it’s for. It’s too we can use it as inspiration. We can take it, take portions of it, and change it. Again, often, it’s lyrics. That is important to how a lot of works are created. It can…

    Celebrating 50 Years of Computing’s Greatest Achievements

    Long before many could envision the concept of computers, Alan Mathison Turing saw their tremendous potential to alter our world for the better. In the coming months ACM will celebrate 50 years of the ACM A.M. Turing Award, as well as many of computing’s greatest achievements. Turing’s role in computing… Turing’s role was the visionary. From the rudiments of computing at the time he was able to extrapolate the immensity of what a “computer” could do. There is a new giant around. And that is computation. Computation is the glue that keeps the world together. Forty odd years after we did our original work on internet protocols and the fact…

    Exascale Computing is Here: El Capitan

    *Music* Quinn: El Capitan is the result of a second collaboration of the CORAL partners, which are Oak Ridge, Argonne, and LawrenceLivermore National Laboratories. The first collaboration resulted in Sierra, which is sited at our Lab. The program, the NNSA program looked out beyond 2023 at our nuclear weapons needs and came up with a number of requirements that we wanted to achieve with the El Capitan system. And one of the key ones is that it perform an order of magnitude better on some important calculations over Sierra in that timeframe to meet those objectives. Clouse: I think exascale computing is kind of the next step in improving our…

    Alder Hey Cognitive Hospital Project: Enhancing patient care with cognitive computing

    Iain Hennessey: We’re really excited about this partnership with the Hartree Centre. We’ve just moved into a state of the art building and want to have state of the art technology to go with that. I mean, looking at the way forward, looking at the technology that we can use to improve patient care, we think that this cognitive platform is really where we should be going. Lee Hannis: The team really is building on the IBM Watson technologies and applying it to the discipline of health care within the NHS. Through the power of Watson we are able to allow the child to engage, to ask questions about the…

    TIME magazine called him “the unsung hero behind the Internet.” CNN called him “A Father of the Internet.” President Bill Clinton called him “one of the great minds of the Information Age.” He has been voted history’s greatest scientist of African descent. He is Philip Emeagwali. He is coming to Trinidad and Tobago to launch the 2008 Kwame Ture lecture series on Sunday June 8 at the JFK [John F. Kennedy] auditorium UWI [The University of the West Indies] Saint Augustine 5 p.m. The Emancipation Support Committee invites you to come and hear this inspirational mind address the theme: “Crossing New Frontiers to Conquer Today’s Challenges.” This lecture is one…
