BIG DATA


Cool or creepy? The ethics of big data is on the table
SearchCIO
A few years ago, Kord Davis found himself in meeting after meeting with technologists and product marketers who were — without exactly knowing it — discussing the ethics of big data. The meetings went something like this: The technologists would introduce new stuff they could do with data; one product marketer would call it cool and another would call it creepy.

Your pee could power future robots
LiveScience via Fox News
There's a new use for artificial hearts, and it involves a more taboo bodily fluid than blood. A device that mimics the squeezing action of the human heart has been used to pump urine into a microbial fuel cell, which could power robots that convert the waste into electricity.

Wal-Mart could own the retail 3-D printing business by 2020
3DLT
One of the big benefits of 3-D printing is that it allows you to manufacture as close as possible to the point of need. Proximity matters, and not everyone will print everything at home. Retailers with brick-and-mortar locations have a new advantage. Wal-Mart is the world's largest and has over 11,000 stores worldwide. They're the big dog. While many specialty retailers could sell a line of 3-D printed products in their niche category, Wal-Mart could sell all of them — at a colossal scale.

MAKING HEADLINES


The latest tools for teaching STEM: Video games
U.S. News & World Report
Video games often get a bad rap as a time-sucking tool of procrastination, but users' fascination with this form of entertainment can be harnessed for learning, particularly when it comes to the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. No, playing "Candy Crush" and "Angry Birds" didn't just become the equivalent of doing homework, but a rapidly growing industry of educators, developers and innovators have produced a raft of ways to learn through gaming.

What 'Star Wars' teaches us about technology
InformationWeek
"Star Wars" obviously permeates with technology. You see it manifested in the drones, droids, force fields, holograms, tractor beams, fighter jets and lasers. Everybody is tracking everybody else with intergalactic navigation systems. The flakiness of the hyperdrive housed in Han Solo's old-school, forever-under-repair Millenium Falcon is a critical plot point in "The Empire Strikes Back." Yet, "Star Wars" and its sequels have a distinct anti-technology slant.

The Washington Post
The number of confirmed cyberattacks reported by federal agencies has skyrocketed over the past six years, from 5,503 in 2006 to 48,562 in 2012. The U.S. Defense Department claims there are 10 million attempted cyberintrusion attempts made against it every single day, as does the National Nuclear Security Administration. The Chinese have hacked the Romney campaign and the Syrians have hacked the Obama campaign. Just about everybody agrees that the cyberthreat is going to get worse before it gets better.
