Researchers using AI to build robotic bees

gigaom.com
In the near future, we might have to be a little more careful about swatting pesky bees while we’re trying to enjoy some time outdoors. British researchers at the Universities of Sussex and Sheffield are developing a computer model of a bee’s brain that they hope can help scientists better...

Why censoring social media might mean more-violent protests

gigaom.com
Cutting off access to social media during times of civil unrest might actually lead to more violence than no censorship at all. This is according to two European researchers who built a computer model showing that high levels of censorship (e.g., Hosni Mubarak’s decision to turn off Egypt’s Internet) result...

Why data should be our guiding light on public policy

gigaom.com
With the advent of open data and new, powerful methods for analyzing it, we’re learning a lot that could challenge longstanding beliefs on public policy. Politicians, social workers and other civil servants have always had data, of course; they just never had as much and could never do with it what...
