Since Google released their #deepdream algorithm I’ve been totally fascinated with the images you can generate. The principle is futuristic but simple: You take a computer version of a neural network (like our brain) and train it to recognize objects in photos.
“A single tree falling is much louder than the whole forest growing” source: https://www.pexels.com/photo/mist-misty-fog-foggy-7919/ When watching the news, reading the newspaper, browsing the events of the day, one easily can get the impression, that the world is a cold, brutal and probably doomed place. Violence, wars, poverty, hate, corruption… Where are all the great news? Well, the great news happen on a different scale. they happen on a basic, personal level. The little joys of life like…
..seems to have a fractal structure (at least over 3 orders of magnitude) check this for scientific background: http://www2.cemr.wvu.edu/~ejb/web_res_grp/index_files/Page486.htm http://eolus.phys.northwestern.edu/applied_physics/project-aerogel_simulations.shtml
Through it’s fractal structure 1 gramm of this material has a surface area of 2630m² which compared to the human lung with astounding 50-100m² surface area is really incredible! This huge step will bring Moores Law to energy storage! Read the full story here
How can a strand of DNA with 2 meters in lenght fit into a tiny cell, and that without becoming a totally entangled mess? Fractal folding is the answer, read the full story here: http://www.wired.com/2009/10/fractal-genome/
