Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics and from cooperating institutions have published the first study to investigate––on the basis of 60 lyrical stanzas from different epochs and greatly varying in content––both the subjective perceptual effects of meter and rhyme and correlative brain responses.
Results of the study—which was carried out at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig—showed that metered and rhymed verses were perceived as more intensely affecting and were aesthetically preferred over non-metered and non-rhymed versions.
On the face of things, it seems pretty obvious that our capacity to carry so much data with us through time is a critical part of our success at spreading across the planet. We can continually build on our knowledge and experience in a way that no other species seemingly does.
Our dataome provides us with a massive evolutionary advantage.
But it’s clearly not free.
We may be trapped in a bigger Darwinian reality where we are in effect now serving as a supporting organelle for our own dataome.
This is an unsettling framework for looking at ourselves. But it has parallels in other parts of the natural world.
The A330neo competes directly with Boeing’s popular 787 Dreamliner family, but it was expected to lure customers through a combination of lower prices, better near-term availability, and significant commonality with the existing A330-200 and A330-300 models.
However, the A330neo has been a flop thus far. The smaller A330-800neo version has sold particularly poorly.
In fact, Airbus didn’t have any firm orders for the A330-800neo as of the end of last month.
I’ve been managing inventions that result from university research for twenty years. I’ve assessed something like two thousand inventions.
Still, when I saw this one at the University of Notre Dame, I was like “wow!” My background in industrial control systems made this leap out at me. Finally, a magnificent way to protect wireless devices from man-in-the-middle attacks!
I was ecstatic! I had to license it and make a go of it.
“All across the country right now, major wireless Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are talking to legislators, mayors, regulators, and the press about the potential of 5G wireless services as if they will cure all of the problems Americans face right now in the high-speed access market,” wrote Ernesto Falcon, the legislative counsel for the Electronic Frontier Foundation public-interest group, in a recent blog post on the association’s site.
“In essence, 5G is being aggressively marketed in policy circles because it provides a useful distraction from the fundamental fact that the United States market is missing out on 21stcentury broadband access, affordable prices, and extraordinary advancements coming from fiber to the home (FTTH) networks.”
Despite their advantages, each technology has its flaws.
For example, feature matching requires regular updates of the feature library to avoid omissions. Due to the wide variances in each protocol’s implementation and unavailability of complete details for proprietary protocols, protocol analysis can usually only be realized for common protocols such as HTTP, FTP, and SMTP.
When threshold values are set improperly, anomaly detection can result in false positives. As the number of web-based networks and advanced persistent threats (APTs) continues to increase, relying on traditional technologies when deploying IDS/IPS will be inadequate.
The automation industry is witnessing an increase in the need for high operational efficiency, improved quality, increased production, higher uptime, and ease of monitoring and controlling industrial processes.
The need to meet these requirements is projected to be the key factor driving the adoption of an Electric Power Distribution Automation System (EPDAS).
Zayo is to provide its dark fibre network for the first quantum key distribution network in the US.
Quantum Xchange’s network will run for 800km between Boston and Washington DC, the first leg of a planned high-security US-wide network.
John Prisco, president and CEO of Quantum Xchange, said: “The Zayo partnership brings us one step closer to lighting up a dark fibre quantum network, marking the first time in history that quantum keys will be exchanged on US soil in a commercial setting.”
