“Paul Allen said his decision to fund AI research lab was inspired by the question of how books and other knowledge might be encoded to become the basis for computer interactions.
… A new synthesis of artificial intelligence, weaving together powerful with traditional machine-learning tools . logic-oriented software
Researchers have focused on three projects — one in computer vision (in which computers learn to recognize images), one to build a reasoning system capable of taking standardized school tests, and a third to help scholars deal with fire hose of information inundating every scientific field.
In September, researchers celebrated first milestone — 60 percent correct answers in language portion of New York State’s fourth-grade science test.”

Energy & Power
“US electric carmaker Tesla Motors has unveiled batteries that can power homes and businesses as it attempts to expand beyond its vehicle business.
The rechargeable lithium-ion battery unit would be built using the same batteries Tesla produces for its electric vehicles, analysts said.”
Academia: Postdoctoral System
“There is a growing number of postdocs and few places in academia for them to go. Some end up trapped as ‘permadocs’: doing multiple postdoc terms, staying for many years and, in a small but significant proportion, never leaving. What does the future hold?
By the time … reached her twelfth year as a postdoctoral fellow, she had finally had enough …”
Artificial Intelligence @IBM
“IBM is testing an idea for making computers more intelligent by utilizing Jeff Hawkins’ ideas on how the human brain operates.”

“A country of 80 million has been all but cut off from global trade for years.
In a sanctions-free Iran, Western energy companies would likely be the biggest foreign first-movers:
Iran has the world’s fourth-largest proven oil reserves and second-largest natural gas reserves.
Iranians are nostalgic for American products … Many Iranians remember driving Chevys, Cadillacs, Buicks and Mustangs before the 1979 Islamic revolution.
Process is underway .. Iranian companies in Dubai have received draft contracts to be official resellers of Hewlett-Packard laptops in Iran.”
