Unlimited Information Is Transforming Society

john rambo

It is a truism among scientists that our enterprise benefits humanity because of the technological breakthroughs that follow in discovery’s wake. And it is a truism among historians that the relation between science and technology is far more complex and much less linear than people often assume. Before the 19th century, invention and innovation emerged primarily from craft traditions among people who were not scientists and who were typically unaware of pertinent scientific developments. The magnetic compass, gunpowder, the printing press, the chronometer, the cotton gin, the steam engine and the water wheel are among the many examples. In the late 1800s matters changed: craft traditions were reconstructed as “technology” that bore an important relation to science, and scientists began to take a deeper interest in applying theories to practical problems. A good example of the latter is the steam boiler explosion commission, appointed by Congress to investigate such accidents

Longcat first popped up online as a meme around 2005 or 2006. Longcat was even added to the Urban Dictionary in 2006, attributing the name to 4chan’s random board, /b/.  While Longcat’s real name is Shiroi (which means white), Japanese fans gave the cat the initial nickname of Nobiiru or Nobiko,

IBM Expands Computational Power of IBM Cloud-Accessible Quantum Computers

john rambo

IBM has unveiled a new milestone on its quantum computing road map, achieving the company’s highest Quantum Volume to date. Combining a series of new software and hardware techniques to improve overall performance, IBM has upgraded one of its newest 27-qubit client-deployed systems to achieve a Quantum Volume 64. The company has made a total of 28 quantum computers available over the last 4 years through IBM Quantum Experience. 

In order to achieve a Quantum Advantage, the point where certain information processing tasks can be performed more efficiently or cost effectively on a quantum computer, versus a classical one, it will require improved quantum circuits, the building blocks of quantum applications. Quantum Volume measures the length and complexity of circuits—the higher the Quantum Volume, the higher the potential for exploring solutions to real world problems across industry, government, and research.

‘Let’s Talk’ Data, Maintenance Software at the Bus Technology Summit

john rambo

When it comes to collecting data and analyzing results, what may have been deemed important prior to the COVID-19 pandemic now might not be at the forefront of transportation operator’s minds.

Tim Purvis, director of transportation for Poway Unified School District near San Diego, discussed key performance indicators (KPI’s) and department goals during the “Let’s Talk” Data session on Wednesday.

He said six months ago, a virtual session or conference like the Bus Technology Summit was unheard of, at least in student transportation circles. But like everything else amid COVID-19, things change. One of those changes could be related to transportation department goals, which Purvis said he prefers to reference rather than KPI’s. He said the same standards that were going to lead districts through the 2020-2021 school year now can be much different, especially where students are attending virtual classes.

He asked attendees these three questions to get them

Journalists Are Leaving the Noisy Internet for Your Email Inbox

john rambo

The most popular paid Substack offering is The Dispatch. It was started last year by Steve Hayes, the former editor in chief of The Weekly Standard, along with Jonah Goldberg, a former editor at National Review, and Toby Stock, a former executive at the American Enterprise Institute. A conservative newsletter with more than a dozen employees, The Dispatch has nearly 100,000 subscribers, almost 18,000 paid, and is close to pulling in $2 million in first-year revenue, most of it derived from Substack subscriptions, Mr. Hayes said.

For all the editorial freedom and entrepreneurial opportunities it offers, Substack exists at a remove from the internet. Journalists who go the subscription route end up writing mainly for their fans, instead of tossing their work into the web, where it can be praised or torn apart by a wide variety of readers.

That is fine with Andrew Sullivan, who joined Substack in the
