  • There is a website which details the events and characters of Game of Thrones very well. (Source link below)
  • A (text based) robot finally passed the Turing test!
  • The Turing test was created by Alan Turing. The parameters of the test state that if more than 30% (or more) of witnesses to a robot’s behavior are unable to tell that it is a robot, it has passed the trial of artificial intelligence.
  • Alan Mathison Turing was a logician, cryptanalyst, mathematician, computer scientists and philosopher. His work greatly furthered the interdisciplinary study of artificial intelligence.
  • In Barbados only military personnel are allowed to wear camoflauge.
  • Hummingbirds can fly backwards and are the only birds capable of doing so.
  • The flag of Nepal is the only flag that is not a quadrilateral (in shape).

  • Electricity is so necessary…
  • Everyone has their dark corners.
  • Wolfram Alpha is taking a shot at a very impressive goal: to produce a free-form, accessible database of all data represented knowledge. A computer that can answer all questions (in whatever form you input) with data.
  • https://www.mathway.com/ is a very helpful math tool. It can solve all major types of problems and even provide step by step guidance.
  • A lot of the people younger than me actually use Google+ as their primary social network. I don’t see much of other social networks because my group of friends and I are habituated to Facebook.

  • Working almost a full day without electricity in the workplace was rather difficult.
  • Watching one of my fellows in a moment of distress made me aware of a different side of his personality.
  • Suggested to download the Wolfram Alpha app. Decided to Google search it and ended up on their “about” page. http://www.wolframalpha.com/about.html
  • Listed as a useful tool on a newsfeed I monitor.
  • Conversation with my students reveal that many of them and their friends have full networks on Google+. Their networks include other kids from their schools and even neighborhood friends.
