Google ii dedica matematicianului Pierre de Fermat un desen cu ocazia celor 410 ani de la nasterea sa

 

Cel mai mare motor de cautare, Google, si-a schimbat logoul, asa cum ne-a obisnuit, pentru a marca nasterea lui Pierre de Fermat. Google a publicat o pictograma deosebita in care se observa o tabla pe care scrie: ‘’Am descoperit o demonstratie cu adevarat minunata pentru aceasta teorema, insa acest doodle este prea mic sa o cuprinda’’. Este ingenios si totodata te face curios sa vezi despre ce este vorba.

În urmă cu 410 ani se năştea matematicianul Pierre de Fermat, precursor al calculului diferenţial, geometriei analitice şi calculului probabilităţilor.

Pierre de Fermat este recunoscut pentru descoperirea unei metode originale pentru găsirea celei mai mari şi celei mai mici ordonate pentru linii curbe, care este analog cu calculul diferenţial, precum şi pentru cercetările sale în teoria numerelor. El a adus contribuţii notabile la geometria analitică, probabilităţi şi optică.

 

 

Este cel mai bine cunoscut pentru Ultima teoremă a lui Fermat, pe care a descris-o într-o notă pe marginea unei copii a cărţii lui Diophantus Arithmetica. 

Pierre de Fermat (n. 17 august 1601, Montauban, Franța  – d. 12 ianuarie 1665, Castres, Franța) este cunoscut pentru contribuțiile sale vaste la diferite domenii matematice, precursor al calculului diferențial, geometriei analitice și calculului probabilităților.

Fermat este considerat câteodată „părinte” al calculului diferențial și al teoriei numerelor. A avut contribuții și în geometria analitică și probabilitate.

IN VIITOR NU VA MAI EXISTA ANONIMAT PE INTERNET. Google CEO Schmidt: No Anonymity Is The Future Of Web. VIDEO:THE INTERNET SYMPHONY

https://i0.wp.com/justgetthere.us/blog/uploads/bigbrother-internet.jpg

Disparitia  anonimatului  este viitorul internetului,spune Eric Schmidt, CEO al Google. Acesta a facut mai multe afirmatii infioratoare in cadrul conferintei Techonomy. Subiectul conferintei a constat in evolutia tehnologiei si efectele acesteia asupra societatii. Mesajul transmis de Schmidt a fost acela ca anonimitatea este un lucru periculos iar guvernele ii vor cere sfarsitul.

Intr-un interviu video cu Julia Boorstin, corespondent CNBC, Schmidt a afirmat (incepand cu minutul 5:13):

“Intimitatea este deosebit de importanta. Intimitatea nu se traduce insa prin anonimitate. Este foarte important ca Google si toti ceilalti sa respecte intimitatea oamenilor. Oamenii au dreptul la intimitate; este natural; este normal. Este calea corecta. Dar, daca vrei sa comiti o crima oribila, nu inseamna ca trebuie sa poti face asta sub protectia unei anonimitati complete. Nu exista sisteme in societatea noastra care sa-ti permita asa ceva. Judecatorii insista pe demascarea faptasului. Deci anonimitatea absoluta ar putea conduce la unele decizii foarte dificile pentru societate si guverne luate ca un intreg.”

Sa fi fost o scapare Freudiana sau doar o simpla greseala, Schmidt are dreptate; faptul ca esti anonim NU inseamna ca planuiesti sa comiti o “crima oribila”.

Echivalarea anonimitatii cu o viitoare fapta odioasa pare a fi directia in care se indreapta anumiti experti in securitate. Strategia nationala pentru identitati de incredere in spatiul cibernetic propune eliminarea identitatilor anonime multiple in favoarea unei singure identitati reale. O parte din logica din spatele acestei identitati de incredere consta in eliminarea infractiunilor. Dar nu este aceeasi logica a anonimitatii responsabila pentru cultivarea comportamentului anti-social si criminal?

Conform ReadWriteWeb, Schmidt a afirmat despre comportamentul anti-social: “Singura cale de administrare a acestui fenomen este transparenta totala si lipsa anonimitatii. Intr-o lume a amenintarilor asincrone, este prea periculos sa nu existe nicio cale prin care sa poti fi identificat. Avem nevoie de un serviciu (verificat) de evidenta a utilizatorilor. Guvernele o vor cere.”

Afirmatia CEO-ului Google despre un viitor al internetului fara anonimitate o transforma intr-un fapt? Daca tot auzim ca intimitatea a murit de mult, cat va mai dura pana vom accepta ca anonimitatea este un comportament anti-social si o infractiune?

Expertul in securitate Bruce Schneier este de parere ca ne protejam intimitatea cand ne gandim la ea, dar renuntam la intimitate cand nu o luam in calcul.

Schneier scrie: “Aici e problema. Insesi companiile a caror CEO ridica in slavi intimitatea isi castiga banii prin controlarea unor cantitati uriase de informatii legate de proprii utilizatori. Fie prin reclame pozitionate pe aria ta de interes, fie prin vanzari incrucisate sau pur si simplu prin convingerea utilizatorilor de a petrece mai mult timp pe site si de a-si invita si prietenii, cu cat mai multa informatie impartita in cat mai multe feluri si intr-un mod cat mai public, cu atat mai mare este profitul. Inseamna ca aceste companii sunt motivate sa cioparteasca in mod continuu intimitatea propriilor servicii, in timp ce prezinta eroziunea intimitatii ca fiind inevitabila si oferindu-le utilizatorilor iluzia de control.”

Pierderea anonimitatii va pune in pericol intimitatea. Este tulburator sa te gandesti ca “guvernele vor cere” eliminarea identitatilor anonime. Chiar daca Schmidt este CEO Google, mesajul sau este periculos si foarte controversat. Google se ocupa cu colectarea si monetizarea informatiei, nu este acesta un conflict de interese? Uite cat stie Google deja despre tine.

Bruce Schneier s-a exprimat elocvent: “Daca noi consideram intimitatea a fi un bun social, ceva necesar democratiei, libertatii si demnitatii umane, atunci nu ne putem baza pe fortele economice sa o mentina.”

Google CEO Schmidt: No Anonymity Is The Future Of Web

Schmidt’s message at the Techonomy Conference was that anonymity is a dangerous thing and governments will demand an end to it.

By Ms. Smith

No anonymity is the future of web in the opinion of Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt. He said many creepy things about privacy at the Techonomy Conference. The focus of the conference was how technology is changing and can change society. Schmidt’s message was that anonymity is a dangerous thing and governments will demand an end to it.

In an video interview with Julia Boorstin, CNBC Correspondent, Schmidt stated (starting at 5:13):

„Privacy is incredibly important,” Schmidt stated. „Privacy is not the same thing as anonymity. It’s very important that Google and everyone else respects people’s privacy. People have a right to privacy; it’s natural; it’s normal. It’s the right way to do things. But if you are trying to commit a terrible, evil crime, it’s not obvious that you should be able to do so with complete anonymity.

There are no systems in our society which allow you to do that. Judges insist on unmasking who the perpetrator was. So absolute anonymity could lead to some very difficult decisions for our governments and our society as a whole.”

Whether it was a Freudian slip or a simple misstatement, Schmidt is correct; it is not obvious that if you are anonymous, you are therefore likely to commit a „terrible, evil crime.”

Anonymity equaling a future heinous act seems to be the direction some online security experts are headed. The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace proposes to do away with anonymous multiple identities in favor of one real identity. Part of the reasoning behind one trusted identity is to do away with crime. But isn’t this the same logic of anonymity breeding anti-social behavior and criminals?

According to ReadWriteWeb, Schmidt said of anti-social behavior, „The only way to manage this is true transparency and no anonymity. In a world of asynchronous threats, it is too dangerous for there not to be some way to identify you. We need a [verified] name service for people.

Since Google’s CEO has proclaimed the future of the web is no anonymity, does that make it a fact? If we keep hearing that privacy is dead and long buried, how long before we accept that anonymity is an anti-social behavior and a crime?

Security expert Bruce Schneier suggests that we protect our privacy if we are thinking about it, but we give up our privacy when we are not thinking about it.

Schneier wrote, „Here’s the problem: The very companies whose CEOs eulogize privacy make their money by controlling vast amounts of their users’ information. Whether through targeted advertising, cross-selling or simply convincing their users to spend more time on their site and sign up their friends, more information shared in more ways, more publicly means more profits. This means these companies are motivated to continually ratchet down the privacy of their services, while at the same time pronouncing privacy erosions as inevitable and giving users the illusion of control.”

The loss of anonymity will endanger privacy. It’s unsettling to think „governments will demand” an end to anonymous identities. Even if Schmidt is Google’s CEO, his message of anonymity as a dangerous thing is highly controversial. Google is in the business of mining and monetizing data, so isn’t that a conflict of interest? Look how much Google knows about you now.

Bruce Schneier put it eloquently, „If we believe privacy is a social good, something necessary for democracy, liberty and human dignity, then we can’t rely on market forces to maintain it.”

VIDEO: PESTE CATEVA LUNI IN S.U.A.VA FI LANSATA CEA MAI MARE INOVATIE IN TELEVIZIUNE DE LA INVENTAREA TELEVIZORULUI COLOR-GOOGLE TV. GOOGLE TV:’Biggest upgrade since colour’ Google unveils the TV that also lets you surf the net

 Seful companiei  Sony Howard Stringer (stanga ) colabortorul sau de la  Intel Paul Otellini,la conferinta despre  GoogleTV din San Francisco

Peste cateva luni, in SUA,va fi lansat Google tv.,o inovatie revolutionara care  va permite utilizatorilor sa vada filme pe Youtube pe ecranul televizorului si sa  intre pe Facebook.

Pana in prezent au existat  doar realizari  limitate in incercarea de a face fuziunea intre  televiziune si internet.

Acum, Google, impreuna cu companiile Sony, Logitech si Intel, au gasit, in sfarsit solutia,iar aceasta se numeste  Google TV.

Reusita a fost deja numita „cea mai mare inovatie in televiziune, de la inventarea televizorului  color”.

Livrat impreuna cu o telecomanda speciala si o tastatura wireless, Google TV va permite utilizatorilor sa vizioneze filme transmise de retelele de televiziune si sa navigheze pe net folosind unul si acelasi ecran  si sa treaca de la o activitate la alta printr-o simpla apasare pe butonul telecomenzii.

 

‘Biggest upgrade since colour’: Google unveils the TV that also lets you surf the net

A television that allows users to switch between watching films and surfing the net has been unveiled by Google.

The innovation has been called ‘the biggest improvement to television since colour’.

GoogleTV will allow customers to access Facebook and watch films on YouTube in the comfort of their living rooms.

Competitors have had limited success trying to merge the internet and TV in the past.

But Google, together with Sony and electronics firms Logitech and Intel, seem to have cracked it, creating ‘companion boxes’ and remote controllers that allow users to switch between the two at the flick of a switch. A special wireless keyboard will also be provided.

Consumers with HDTV sets will be able to plug into the technology simply by buying a set-top box.

The TV is expected to go on sale in the U.S. this autumn before arriving in Britain next year. The price has not yet been fixed.

The search engine company demonstrated the software at a conference in San Francisco in front of thousands of software developers.

At a press conference after the launch, Sir Howard Stringer, chief executive of Sony, said that Google TV was ‘a very big deal’.

Demonstration: The television allows users to switch between watching films and surfing the net

Intel CEO Paul Otellini predicted the effort will be ‘the biggest improvement to television since colour’.

Google project senior product manager Rishi Chandra said: ‘Video should be consumed on the biggest, best and brightest screen in the house. And that’s a TV. It’s not a PC or a phone or anything else in between.

‘Our goal is to make the same impact on television as the smart phone has had on the mobile phone market.’

Research into consumer habits shows increasing numbers of people go online while watching TV but companies have as of yet failed to enable people easily to do both at once using one screen.

Competitors Apple and Yahoo! have both tried but without much success. Some TVs on the market currently offer access to the internet through set-top boxes via cable or satellite – but with a limited choice of sites.

Yahoo!’s Connected TV platform allows access to certain websites such as eBay and Facebook but it has not broken into the mainstream.
