知恵へのデータ

それは必要な知性と経験の量になると, 我々は、データから情報への知識を知恵に明確な階層構造を持っています. 私たちは生の観測から何を得るだけのデータポイントがあります. 私たちは、凝集のいくつかの手法を適用します, グラフ作成などを報告します. 情報に到達します. 相互接続との関係を明らかにすることで、さらに高いレベルの処理は私たちに凝縮し、実用的な情報を提供します, 私たちは知識を考慮することができます. しかし、知恵に到達します, 私たちは、熱心な心と長年の経験を必要とします, 私たちは知恵、それ自体で意味が明白にはほど遠いので、. むしろ, それは明らかです, しかし、簡単に説明していません, そして、そう簡単にコンピュータに委任されません. 少なくとも, ので、私は考えました. How could machines bridge the gap from data to wisdom?

Why Have Kids?

At some point in their life, most parents of teenage children would have asked a question very similar to the one Cypher asked in Matrix, “なぜ, oh, why didn’t I take the blue pill?” Did I really have to have these kids? 誤解しないでください, I have no particular beef with my children, they are both very nice kids. ほかに, I am not at all a demanding parent, which makes everything work out quite nicely. But this general question still remains: Why do people feel the need to have children?

バガヴァッド・ギーター

ヒンドゥー教の聖典の中で, the Bhagavad Gita is the most revered one. 文字通りとして提示 神の言葉, the Bhagavad Gita enjoys a stature similar to the Bible or the Koran. すべての経典のように, the Bhagavad Gita also can be read, 単なる献身の行為として、, しかし、哲学的談話としてだけでなく. それは世界を理解するのに哲学的な姿勢を提示します, そのフォーム (インドからのもののために) 人生に対処する基本的かつ根本的な仮定, そして彼らの周り不可知現実. 実際には, それはちょうど仮定と仮説以上のものです; それは世代から世代へと受け継が常識の基礎であります. それは知性の基礎であります, ロジックの前に同化され、合理性に触れたり分析することができない現実の本能や感情の理解を形成します. 彼らは切り札が毎回ロゴ神話です.

Aging Mind

I used to have a pretty sharp mind, particularly when it came to simple arithmetic. I think age has begun to dull it. Case in point: recently I had to check a friend’s pulse rate. So I felt his pulse for 15 seconds and got 17 beats. その時点で, I wanted to call out the heart beats per minute. And at that point, my mind suddenly went blank. It started going through this chain, “[OK]を, I got 17 のために 15 seconds. So what is it for a minute? It should be, what, 60 seconds over 15 回 17. Hold it, where is my iPhone? I need a calculator. No wait, それは 17 for a quarter of a minute. そう 17 回 4. Where is my calculator, dammit?!” Granted, it was a slightly stressful situation. But this is not at all the way my mind used to work.

Income Inequality

I read on BBC yesterday that the richest 62 people in the world now earn as much as the poorest half, which would be about 3.5 billion people! Although there is some confusion about the methodology, it is clear that the wealth and income have been getting more and more polarized. The rich are certainly getting richer. Income inequality is more acute than ever.

9/11 – Too True to Tell

It has been a while since I posted a new article in this series on 9/11. Recent terror events have made it unpalatable to dwell on the 9/11 conspiracy theme. Nevertheless, one has stand up for what one believes to be true, even when the stance is unpopular. So I will press on with the series, and wrap it up with two more articles, despite the warning from a friend that I will never be able to visit the US again without risking a lengthy interview at the airport. Or worse. しかしながら, some truths have to be told, even when they are too true.
