"One of the things I first enjoyed when I was introduced to philosophy was its recursive nature: we could use thought to investigate the nature, the rules, the structure and the limits of thought itself (and what that could tell us about the human mind). For a very similar reason I have a certain appreciation and fondness for linguistics. Most of our communication takes place through language, and linguists are hard at work trying to understand what they can about human cognition, nature and culture, by paying close attention to the way in which we use language." - Sean McBride
"In the following lecture, Steven Pinker provides a fascinating introduction to questions such as how syntax (the study of linguistic structure), phonology (the study of sound), semantics (the study of meaning) and pragmatics (the study of the social and cultural role and context of language), all help us to understand how language works. He also provides a lesson on the nature of the... more... - Sean McBride

Self-driving cars will be safer than us. How long until human drivers are banned? http://zite.to/1FjJhwn
30 years, tops, before humans are banned from driving on most public U.S. roadways In urban areas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Possibly sooner. - Sean McBride
many many decades. - Brian Johns
Cars individual transportation modules may themselves be banned long before "driverless" cars become even a blip on the radar much less human operators banned Please See aircraft and locomotives et al - WarLord
The article brings up a valid point. It may be more about legal and ethical issues than technical ones. Besides, I want to see a driverless vehicle drive me to work in winter time with snow and ice covered roads through four foot snow drifts without clear visual references as to where the road actually is. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone

News Fact-checking: One Practical Application of Linked Statistics https://semstats2014.files.wordpress.com/2014...
"This paper presents an example of practical application of Linked Statistics to the problem of checking facts in news articles. We consider a use case of verifying a news article that exploits statistical facts from the Italian National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT). To realise the use case, we publish a subset of ISTAT as Linked Data, thus, contributing to the presence of statistics on the Web of Data. We discuss how links from the news article to LinkedSTAT can enable creation of automated tools and services for fact-checking. We received a positive evaluation of our demo use case from ISTAT experts. With our work we hope to promote the value that could be obtained by publishing statistics as Linked Data by official statistical agencies and organisations." - Sean McBride

Microsoft Targets IBM Watson with Azure Machine Learning in Big Data Race -- Redmondmag.com
"Nearly a year after launching its Hadoop-based Azure HDInsight cloud analytics service, Microsoft believes it's a better and broader solution for real-time analytics and predictive analysis than IBM's widely touted Watson. Big Blue this year has begun commercializing its Watson technology, made famous in 2011 when it came out of the research labs to appear and win on the television game show Jeopardy." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

"ECI is a classification above Top Secret. It's for things that are so sensitive they're basically not written down, like the names of companies whose cryptography has been deliberately weakened by the NSA, or the names of agents who have infiltrated foreign IT companies." - Sean McBride

Which means that it is much more powerful than unmarked-up data -- data without metadata. - Sean McBride

Lots of attitude and personal drama? Boring. Dark and edgy? Boring. Been there, done that.
