A fascinating conversation about past and present space missions. Dr. Butler Hine is the Flight Project Manager and Chief Technologist for Engineering at the NASA Ames Research Center and a senior research scientist at IHMC.
800 grams (28.2 ounces) sounds like a lot of fruits and vegetables in a day, but it is one of the best nutritional strategies to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (24%), stroke (33%), cardiovascular disease (28%), cancer (14%) and all-cause mortality (31%).
What happens when Siri and Wolfram Alpha fail us? We are still in need of humans to interpret and answer questions. This paper explores how expert knowledge and crowdsourcing overlap with the monetary and social benefits of popular Q&A systems.
A framework by which we can understand beauty, why we desire it, and how to maximize finding it through the process of discovery. The theory suggests that our actions search for novelty that is compressible.
This talk extends previous work on the YOLO algorithm to detect and classify objects in realtime. Redmon goes onto discuss the potentially nefarious ways (i.e., dual use) this technology can be used and exploited.
Using compression as a foundation, Morris takes a look at how rhythm, periodicity and lyrics combine to create music that is meaningful (or not). Incredibly insightful even for non-musicians who like seeing data in different light.
A look at how D1 dopamine receptors might play a role in temporal processing (based on an action performed). Interestingly, a 2 Hz (delta band) stimulation improves performance.
A great conversation about wellness. How every effort to enhance your nutrition, community and self-care results in an increase in longevity and happiness.
A fantastic dive into the world of juggling as a performance art and career. How different styles map to geography and the ways that juggling has evolved over time.
This paper is one among many that contrast the presumes (and tested) roles of the basal ganglia and cerebellum in performing actions that are either rhythmic or based on single intervals.
How much should we trust published research? A conversation that helps shape a worldview which we should approach scientific literature and claims.
