Know More
http://knowmore.washingtonpost.com/

Know More, from the Washington Post, is a fanciful and fascinating look at a whole range of topics. Each entry is a simple picture, line graph, bar graph, collage, map, or other visual representation of some complex phenomenon. Readers who are not interested in this particular iteration of information can click "no more" to make it disappear. When readers find themselves intrigued, they may click "know more" to navigate to a longer, and often even more intriguing unpacking of the phenomenon at play. For example, the entry, "All the world's wealth in pizza (1.26 million sq km)" links to an article by Tim Urban in which the author breaks the world's wealth down into $100 bills, then into gold bars, and finally into pizza. The site's concept in intriguing and it's well worth exploring. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™.

Neurence - Intelligent Information Platform
http://www.neurence.com/

Traditionally, the unstructured environment of our human world has been very hard for computers to understand — it lacks repetition, order and automation. This presents a problem for our everyday devices, which we expect to operate effectively in our highly complex, nuanced environment: each machine would require a huge amount of on-board processing power necessary to compute the different variables within every situation it encounters. Compounding this problem, any knowledge that has been accumulated by each device is not easy to exchange with other devices, so any learnt knowledge is siloed and not useful for other users and devices. To solve this problem, Neurence was founded by a group of world-class mathematicians and software engineers in Cambridge, England. Representing one of Europe's premier technical groups, the team at Neurence has built a highly intelligent, cloud-based central repository of information: Neurence acts like a "brain", with an ability to actually see, hear and understand the world around it. By using new mathematical and computational algorithms which power our cloud architecture, devices can be connected into and powered by Neurence, 'outsourcing' the processing of information from on-board the device into Neurence's intelligent cloud. By communicating all sensory data to Neurence, devices can access Neurence's knowledge to react to situations in the most effective and efficient way yet. This cloud-based machine learning means that each device does not need on-board processing power, allowing devices to be lighter, faster and less expensive to manufacture. Most importantly, each device can learn from the experience of others — enabling computers to move away from a rules-based, pre-programmed approach, evolving to understand the complexities of humans and their environments, and react accordingly. Features include: a) Neurence is hosted in a shared cloud storage architecture, meaning devices and applications can consult the brain when they come across a new situation; b) As Neurence learns from the experience of all connected devices, Neurence will automatically instruct the device on what to do based on the optimal outcome of other devices' history; c) These learnt repositories of information can be updated and refined in light of new information received by each device and application, sending this optimized information back to all devices; d) Neurence self-learns, therefore the more devices that are connected to the cloud, the more intelligent Neurence becomes; and e) The Neurence platform can be used to power any number of devices, such as phones, smart glasses and home appliances. Connected devices will instantly be able to access an almost infinite library of information, stored in our cloud. This will be added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Open Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS)
http://www.darknet.org.uk/2015/01/openvas-7-released-open-source-vulnerability-scanner/

The Open Vulnerability Assessment System (OpenVAS) is a framework of several services and tools offering a comprehensive and powerful vulnerability scanning and vulnerability management solution. The actual security scanner is accompanied with a daily updated feed of Network Vulnerability Tests (NVTs), over 35,000 in total (as of April 2014). The OpenVAS Manager is the central service that consolidates plain vulnerability scanning into a full vulnerability management solution. The Manager controls the Scanner via OTP (OpenVAS Transfer Protocol) and itself offers the XML-based, stateless OpenVAS Management Protocol (OMP). All intelligence is implemented in the Manager so that it is possible to implement various lean clients that will behave consistently e.g. with regard to filtering or sorting scan results. The Manager also controls a SQL database (sqlite-based) where all configuration and scan result data is centrally stored. Finally, Manager also handles user management includiung access control with groups and roles. Still today it’s pretty much the only fully fledged Open Source vulnerability scanner out there. This will be added to Deep Web Research and Discovery Resources 2015.

Use DueDil to understand the financial performance of your Competitors, Suppliers and Customers. Launched in 2011, DueDil was founded on a firm belief that it shouldn’t just be a legal requirement for businesses to share certain types of data; it should be seen as an essential part of creating dialogue, building trust, and looking and sounding like a successful 21st century business. In just two years, they have grown to be the largest source of private company information in the UK and Ireland. They are not resting on their laurels though, adding new data sets and business information on a regular basis means that they are staying head and shoulders above their competition (and if they are, that means their users are too). They have compiled vast amounts of reliable data, including profiles from over 10 million companies, and more than 13 million directors, enabling you to make more informed decisions on not only who you do business with, but who you want to do business with.

Propulsion Research Center
http://www.uah.edu/prc

There is a reason why the magazine Popular Science cited the Propulsion Research Center at the University of Alabama in Huntsville as one of the coolest student labs in the country. For one thing, they get to launch rockets. They also have state of the art research facilities and contracts with a number of private industries. Browse the About section to read the fascinating history of the lab, including the government organizations and aerospace industries that students get to collaborate with. Then check out News for videos of Methane Ignition, Schlieren Nozzles, and other wonders. This will be added to Student Research Resources Subject Tracer™.

Global Consumption Database
http://datatopics.worldbank.org/consumption/

The World Bank designed this enormous database on economically developing countries for two groups: researchers seeking data to analyze and businesses looking to understand or expand their marketshare. For the rest of us, it’s just fascinating reading. Start with the short article on the homepage, which explains that the roughly 4.5 billion low-income people in the world collectively spend about $5 trillion a year - more than the middle and higher income segments combined. Then, explore the two Dashboards. The first feeds back information by country, the second by sector (Food and Beverages, Clothing and Footwear, Housing, etc.). For instance, Albania, with a total population of 2.8 million, saw a 7.6% dip in household spending in 2012, with the lowest segment forking over about $60 million for Food and Beverages, while the higher segment spent $265 million on the same category.

Genetics and Genomics From the U.S. Library of Medicine
http://www.nlm.nih.gov/services/Subject_Guides/geneticsandgenomics/

”With the sequencing of the human genome…the practice of medicine has now entered an era in which the individual patient’s genome will help determine the optimal approach to care, whether it is preventive, diagnostic, or therapeutic. Genomics, which has quickly emerged as the central basic science of biomedical research, is poised to take center stage in clinical medicine as well.” The scope of this guide includes: a) Is to help you find introductory materials relating to Genetics and Genomics, such as basic features of the human genome and its organization into chromosomes. Genetics and genomics are terms often (incorrectly) used interchangeably in the literature and on the Web; b) Is not comprehensive in scope or coverage, particularly for specific genetic conditions or new and improved technologies; c) Provides links to bioinformatics gateways for more genetic information (e.g., National Center for Biotechnology Information), for DNA sequence data from the human genome and for resources that analyze human genome sequences; d) Points primarily to free electronic items, or records for materials that may be available via your library; e) Has a section of links for professional education; and f) Has a section suggesting how to use PubMed to search for citations to published research journal literature for more information about a particular disease or condition.

StartupBlink - Maps Startups, Accelerators and CoWorking Spaces Around the Globe
http://www.StartupBlink.com/

Ever wonder where the next startup boom might happen around the globe? A close look at StartupBlink might be of help. The site features a world map of startups, accelerator programs, coworking spaces and more. While it’s hard to say exactly how many startups there are on Earth, StartupBlink knows where over 67,000 of them are located — along with nearly 100 accelerators and 200 coworking spaces. StartupBlink also maps startup ecosystem influencers (like Mukund Mohan, Ben Horowitz, Steven Sinofsky, Gary Veynerchuk, and even our own Patrick de Laive), freelancers of various disciplines and job openings at startups. The map lets you filter startups by industry and location, while the freelancer search filters guns-for-hire by discipline, specific skill set and hourly rate. Startups can also create Blinks to broadcast news, event listings, promotions and even post questions for the community to respond to. Users can comment on and share Blinks via Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Co-founder Eli David says that over 700 entities add themselves to the map each month. In addition, the team is working to establish data collaborations with local startup maps to increase StartupBlink’s listings, and will regularly interact with registered startups to keep the site’s information up-to-date. While the interactive map and search functions work well enough, StarupBlink’s usefulness will depend largely on how comprehensive its listings really are. However, with its mix of features, it certainly has the potential to be useful to the community. This has been added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Start Up Resources for the Entrepreneur white paper.

TODAY IS A ONCE-IN-A-CENTURY Pi Day: 3.1415! Above the flag of The Boston Globe: "Mathematicians rejoice: For the first time in 100 years, Pi Day falls on 3/14/15 - the first five digits of the constant that represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. And at 9:26:53 this morning and tonight, the first 10 digits will match. Yes, there will be celebrations."

--Allen Shardelow, partner in charge of the Heidrick & Struggles office in Johannesburg, emails collleagues: "PI Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter 'π') is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant - the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter - which is approximately 3.14159. Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi's infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.

"This year 2015 is a special year for Pi Day enthusiasts. In the mm : dd : yy format, the Pi Day, which is March, 14, '15, will be written as, 3-14-15. These are the first 5 significant digits of Pi (3.1415). Not only this: On this day, at 9 AM, it will be the first 6 digits of Pi. So this will be the Pi Hour. Twenty six minutes later, it will be, the Pi Minute, reading,, 3-14-15, 9 hr 26 min (first 8 digits of Pi). Is there a Pi Second ? Yes, its 5 seconds later, to get the first 9 digits of Pi (3.14159265). Now comes the most dramatic Perfect Pi Moment !! ... by expressing the fractional part of the Pi Seconds in the form of decimals, say, 5.35 we get up to 11 digits of Pi. Then extending the decimals infinitely, as per the digits ofPi, we will pass through the Perfect Pi Moment."

General Education in a Free Society: Report of the Harvard Committee
http://archive.org/details/generaleducation032440mbp

One of the wonderful advantages of an online world is that works previously held only in obscure university libraries can be accessed right on your laptop. Made available by the Universal Library Project, this engrossing tract was written by a dozen Harvard professors and published in 1945. The content still resonates with contemporary debates about who should have access to college education, what that education should consist of, and what education means for a democracy. As James Bryant Conant notes in the introduction to the book, "There is hardly a university or college in the country which has not had a committee at work… considering basic educational questions and making plans for drastic revamping of one or more curricula." The 298-page report can be read online, or downloaded in various forms. General Education in a Free Society is a captivating read for anyone engaged in discussions of educational policy, past, present, or future.

EUDAT - European Data Infrastructure
http://www.eudat.eu/

In recent years, significant investments have been made by the European Commission and European member states to create a pan-European e-infrastructure supporting multiple research communities. As a result, a European e-infrastructure ecosystem is currently taking shape, with communication networks, distributed grids and HPC facilities providing European researchers from all fields with state-of-the-art instruments and services that support the deployment of new research facilities on a pan-European level. However, the accelerated proliferation of data – newly available from powerful new scientific instruments, simulations and digitization of library resources –, has created a new impetus for increasing efforts and investments in order to tackle the specific challenges of data management, and to ensure a coherent approach to research data access and preservation. EUDAT aims to address these challenges and exploit new opportunities using its vision of a Collaborative Data Infrastructure.
