Between driverless cars and AI and gene modification technology, we're about to see a lot of very big changes in a short amount of time. But there's a danger of people rebelling because things moved too fast. Imagine an angry, jobless populace once driverless cars take away the transportation industry and electric cars take away the gas industry. Will politicians have to enact universal basic income? It's a sobering reminder that we are—as a country and as a species—still adapting to an every changing world. Even if it's a world that we designed. Vivek tackles this and a host of other issues (as well as some great things to look forward to) in our first long-form video. Vivek is the author of The Driver in the Driverless Car: How Our Technology Choices Will Create the Future. Intro / Th...

Science Documentary: Mental Health Disorders, Brain Trauma, Stress and Anxiety, a Documentary on the Brain Dealing with mental health disorders is one of the greatest challenges facing governments around the globe. Diseases such as alzheimers and depression rob the individual and society of mental capital and well being. One in four people suffer from a mental health disorder. Disorders like alzheimers, schizophrenia, depression, mania, etc. , impact our cognitive functioning. And as a result, it impacts how we function in our homes and at work. So it is imperative to detect these disorders early, and treat them early. There are two types of cognition. There is cold or rational cognition, and hot cognition. Cold cognition helps us make the majority of our decisions in our daily...

Category Theory for the Working Hacker The talk will explain why category theory is of interest for developers. The principle of Propositions as Types describes a correspondence between propositions and proofs in logic, on the one hand, and types and programs in computing, on the other. Category theory constitutes a third leg of this correspondence. Assuming only enough familiarity with functional programming that you know why ‘Lambda World’ has that name, the talk will explain how to model products (logical and), sums (logical or), and functions (logical implication), and why you already learned the most important stuff in high school. About Philip: Philip Wadler is an American computer scientist known for his contributions to programming language design and type theory. In particular,...
To release software smoothly, avoiding time wasted troubleshooting infrastructure issues - you might consider automating your infrastructure as code. To achieve continuous delivery requires thinking about how technologies like chef, puppet, ansible, docker and the like might serve this need for your team and organization. The first step is to determine an approach for using images. If on premise, you might create one that can be used when initializing a virtual machine. In the cloud, this image might be used somewhere like docker hub, or in windows azure or amazon web services (an ec2 image). Jez Humble refers to computing resources and environments that have not had their infrastructure controlled as "works of art". I love this term, it accurately describes the confusion around how a n...

Description: Deepak Chopra and Stuart Hameroff take an in-depth dive into the science of consciousness.* Stuart Hameroff, MD is a physician, Professor of Anesthesiology and Psychology, and Director of the Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona in Tucson. In medical school, Hameroff became interested in intelligent behavior of microtubules, protein lattices within brain neurons and other living cells. Hameroff developed theories of microtubules as self-organizing molecular computers, and teamed with Sir Roger Penrose on the controversial Penrose-Hameroff "Orch OR" model of consciousness. Based on quantum computing in brain microtubules, Orch OR connects brain activities to the most basic level of the universe -- fundamental spacetime geometry at the Planck scale. At...
Many of the pressing challenges facing contemporary society concern sustainability and public health. For example, how can sustainable behaviors�such as reducing individual energy consumption�be encouraged? How can participation in activities that reduce overall healthcare costs�such as compliance with preventive care routines and leading healthy lifestyles�be supported? Common to these challenges is a fundamental question: how can we facilitate cooperative behavior adoption on a large scale? The conditions for self-governance found in small groups do not apply in large populations. As a result, the question of how cooperation can be facilitated in large populations remains unanswered and is the focus of my work. In this talk, I shall discuss the computational tools needed to engender co...
When people think of product security, they think of an enforcer telling them "no" or "don't do that" or "I'm suprised you didn't know that". At Cloud Foundry, we're trying to improve product security while building a healthy agile security culture. In this Ignite session I'll talk about how the CF teams are working on a secure development lifecycle, some pain points we've hit along the way, and best practices for shipping security features quickly and (relatively) painlessly. Participants should come away with knowledge on how to improve the culture of product security at their organization.
