Visibility of IEET Jumps This Week

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J

Due to the extraordinary viral popularity of two of our articles this last week, our weekly IEET readership jumped 50% above our highest previous recorded week. The two articles were IEET Advisor Gray Scott‘s concise and compelling “Seven Emerging Technologies That Will Change the World Forever” which exploded Tuesday while the two of us (J. Hughes and Gray Scott) were sitting together at the World Summit on Technological Unemployment. It now has almost 100,000 hits, making us think Gray may be stepping into the shoes of the late and missed Dick Pelletier, who also seemed to have his finger on the pulse of the futurist community. The other article was IEET Assistant Director Marcelo Rinesi‘s “The price of the Internet of Things will be a vague dread of a malicious world” which was praised for it’s eloquence by futurist and SF writer Bruce Sterling, and by the blog Boing Boing.

Why is A* Search Better?

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J

I have just read that A* Search is both complete and optimal due to its use of f(n) = g(n) + h(n). Why does adding g and h together make it more efficient than using just g such as in the Uniform-Cost Search?

A Techno-Optimist Movement: For an Evenly Distributed Future

http://ift.tt/1QQe7At

Prominently known as the “noir prophet” of the cyberpunk subgenre, sci-fi novelist William Ford Gibson once said, “The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed.”[1]

We are living in a point of time in which we can conceivably recognize the emergence of a future once envisioned throughout science-fiction literature. Unfortunately, as stated by Gibson, the future doesn’t appear to be evenly distributed. Whether or not this is merely the hallmark of a future emerging from its infancy, only to then mature over time, shouldn’t prevent us from recognizing the current problems laid before us.
