Google to build quantum computing processors | PCWorld
"Google has partnered with scientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara to build new processors for use in quantum computing systems. Quantum computers aim to use properties of subatomic particles to perform calculations millions of times faster than conventional computers, although there are lots of obstacles to overcome for that to happen. Google’s Quantum Artificial Intelligence team will work with researchers at UC Santa Barbara to build new quantum information processors to help make quantum computers a reality." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

Cognitive computing can take the semantic Web to the next level | Big Data - InfoWorld (James Kobielus) - http://www.infoworld.com/d...
"As big data analytics pushes deeper into cognitive computing, it needs to bring the semantic Web into the heart of this new age" - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"Cognitive computing can't achieve its potential without a strong semantic-processing substrate that executes across diverse content sources. It's good to see that the above-cited article's author, Nova Spivack, references IBM Watson in this regard. The cloud service's DeepQA technology incorporates semantic approaches into its very core, balancing the use of strict and shallow semantics and leveraging many loosely formed ontologies to deliver precise answers to natural-language queries." - Sean McBride
"In my recent big data predictions for 2014, I state that cognitive computing -- much of which will move into the cloud -- incorporates and extends the innovations pioneered by the semantic Web community. Here's what I said: "In 2014, more big data, advanced analytics, and business intelligence platforms will adopt cognitive-computing capabilities to automate sense-finding, natural... more... - Sean McBride
"You could view cognition in the cloud, per Spivack's discussion, as the next evolutionary plateau for the semantic Web. But this demands we have a shared understanding of the relationship between the concepts of "cognitive computing" and "semantic computing." The affinity is clear cut. Cognitive computing refers to the ability of automated systems to handle conscious, critical,... more... - Sean McBride
"Semantic computing is what natural-language processing, the heart of cognitive computing, is doing. Data scientists use cognitive-computing tools -- natural-language processing, pattern recognition, and machine learning -- to extract the implicit semantics from unstructured content sources. The extracted entities, relationships, facts, sentiments, and other artifacts are used to... more... - Sean McBride

No, You Can't Claim Arctic Ice is "Recovering"
"The Daily Mail and Mail Online are to scientific accuracy what a sledgehammer is to an egg. Especially when it comes to global warming." - Sean McBride
"David Rose is oftentimes the wielder of that sledgehammer. He’s written error-laden climate articles in the past, like saying that global warming has stopped (no, it hasn’t), that the world is cooling (no, it really really isn’t), and the IPCC had to hold a crisis meeting because Rose’s articles have caused such a fuss (that meeting never happened, which Rose had been told several times, but still made the claim). Other examples abound." - Sean McBride

No more pause: Warming will be non-stop from now on - environment - 31 August 2014 - New Scientist
"Enjoy the pause in global warming while it lasts, because it's probably the last one we will get this century. Once temperatures start rising again, it looks like they will keep going up without a break for the rest of the century, unless we cut our greenhouse gas emissions." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"The slowdown in global warming since 1997 seems to be driven by unusually powerful winds over the Pacific Ocean, which are burying heat in the water. But even if that happens again, or a volcanic eruption spews cooling particles into the air, we are unlikely to see a similar hiatus, according to two independent studies." - Sean McBride

The Four Top Search Providers Unite to Talk Semantic Web - Semanticweb.com
"Albertson of the Examiner recently wrote, “It was an unusual sight to be sure. Standing on a convention center stage together were computer engineers from the four largest search providers in the world (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft Bing, and Yandex). Normally, this group couldn’t even agree on where to go for dinner, but this week in San Jose, California they were united by a common cause: the Semantic Web… At the Semantic Technology and Business Conference is San Jose this week, researchers from around the world gathered to discuss how far they have come and the mountain of work still ahead of them.”" - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
"Albertson continues, “The four search providers were on the conference agenda to discuss their role in a key part of the project to build a smarter Web, an undertaking known as schema.org. It’s basically a way that search providers can understand the meaning of the content on the Web and allow developers to extract much more information from a typical online query. ‘It’s essentially a... more... - Sean McBride
Facebook users self-censor on controversial topics - http://www.usatoday.com/story...
There are a lot of things I'm willing to say in person that I'm not willing to say online. - Brian Johns
Online remarks can be forever, globally. - Sean McBride
From what I've seen on my feed, some users don't self-censor or if they do, we are in hella trouble. - Greg GuitarBuster
It's probably one of the few places I do self censor because I don't know enough about people I respect who are friends, family, business partners etc. and lots of people read without ever engaging in conversation so you don't know what their perception is of views on topics that often need more complete explanations to fully grasp then just the snippets of conversation we leave on a thread. - Eric Logan
I always advise everyone around me -- don't post sensitive personal data on the Internet -- you will regret it. You don't know who is reading those posts, how they will react to them and how they will use them. - Sean McBride

Automated hypothesis generation based on mining scientific literature - http://dl.acm.org/citatio...&
"Keeping up with the ever-expanding flow of data and publications is untenable and poses a fundamental bottleneck to scientific progress. Current search technologies typically find many relevant documents, but they do not extract and organize the information content of these documents or suggest new scientific hypotheses based on this organized content. We present an initial case study on KnIT, a prototype system that mines the information contained in the scientific literature, represents it explicitly in a queriable network, and then further reasons upon these data to generate novel and experimentally testable hypotheses. KnIT combines entity detection with neighbor-text feature analysis and with graph-based diffusion of information to identify potential new properties of entities that are strongly implied by existing relationships. We discuss a successful application of our approach that mines the published literature to identify new protein kinases that phosphorylate the protein... more... - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

"IBM has combined concepts and technologies from a variety of research projects to create IBM Watson Discovery Advisor, an integrated package of technologies that’s delivered as a cloud service. The technology essentially makes a map of information by reasoning over patterns it “sees” in available data. It fills in the blanks on the data map. Or, to bust the metaphor, it connects the dots between pieces of related information. In this way, raw information is transformed into new knowledge." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
