Traffic lights that respond to local conditions could ease congestion.(...)
Majority rule could turn it to green. c Getty
There have been some attempts to make traffic signals more flexible, responding to the state of the traffic. These intelligent 'advanced traffic management systems' generally connect the lights to a centralized computer that is constantly seeking an optimal switching sequence.
Such approaches are costly to implement, however, and can be computationally very challenging. In Gershenson's method, by contrast, traffic lights at a junction act on their own, responding simply to the local conditions.
Self-Organizing Traffic Lights, arXiv
Abstract: Steering traffic in cities is a very complex task, since improving efficiency involves the coordination of many actors. Traditional approaches attempt to optimize traffic lights for a particular configuration. of traffic and density. The disadvantage of this lies in the fact that traffic configurations change constantly. Traffic seems to be an adaptation problem rather than an optimization problem. We propose a simple and feasible alternative, in which traffic lights self-organize to improve traffic flow. We use a multi-agent simulation to study two self-organizing methods, which are able to outperform two traditional rigid methods. Using simple rules, traffic lights are able to self-organize and adapt to changing traffic conditions, reducing waiting times, stopped cars, and increasing average speeds. Even when the scenario simplifies real traffic, results are very promising, and encourage further research in more realistic environments.
Modeling And Simulating Human Teamwork Behaviors Using Intelligent Agents, Phy. Life Rev.
Excerpts: Among researchers in multi-agent systems there has been growing interest in using intelligent agents to model and simulate human teamwork behaviors. Teamwork modeling is important for training humans in gaining collaborative skills, for supporting humans in making critical decisions by proactively gathering, fusing, and sharing information, and for building coherent teams with both humans and agents working effectively on intelligence-intensive problems. (...) This article presents an extensive, but not exhaustive, list of work in the field, where the taxonomy is organized along two main dimensions: team social structure and social behaviors. (...)

Real Reform for Social Security, NY Times
Excerpts: (...), let's be clear about what this Social Security reform debate is really about. It's about the market. People who instinctively trust the markets support the Bush reform ideas, and people who are suspicious oppose them.
The people setting the tone for the opposition to the Bush Social Security effort depict the financial markets as huge, organized scams where the rich prey upon the weak. Their phrases are already familiar: a risky scheme, Enron accounting, a gift to the securities industry, greedy speculators preying upon Grandma's pension.
When a proponent of the proposed change of social security was asked what would happen to those who see their social security investments loose value like the Enron stock, the reply was that there would be a special funds to protect those unfortunate souls. So it seems there will be a social security within the social security.
Economic Impact Of SARS: The Case Of Hong Kong, Asian Econ. Papers
Excerpts: SARS is the first deadly infectious disease of the 21st century. It started in the Chinese province (...). This paper describes the spread of the disease in Hong Kong and discusses its impact on the economy. SARS was an unexpected negative shock. The most significant negative effects were on the demand side, with local consumption and the export of services related to tourism and air travel severely affected in the short run. (...) Initial alarmist reports and estimates about the negative economic impacts were not borne out. Fear and panic subsided quickly once the outbreak was under control, and the economy rebounded rapidly.

Patent Prescription, A Radical Cure For The Ailing U.S. Patent System, IEEE Spectrum
The U.S. Patent Nightmare began with an apparently benign change in the nation's judicial process. Almost all formal disputes involving patents are tried in the federal judicial system, (...). Before 1982, appeals of patent cases were heard in the appellate courts of the various circuits. These courts differed considerably in their interpretation of patent law; some courts were more than twice as likely to uphold patent claims as others. The differences persisted because the U.S. Supreme Court, which normally steps in to ensure national legal uniformity, rarely heard "banal" patent cases.
Getting Closer Or Drifitng Apart?, Quart. J. Econ.
Excerpt: Advances in communication and transportation technologies have the potential to bring people closer together and create a "global village." However, they also allow heterogeneous agents to segregate along special interests, which gives rise to communities fragmented by type rather than by geography. We show that lower communication costs should always decrease separation between individual agents even as group-based separation increases. (...) We test the model by looking at coauthoring between academic economists before and during the rise of the Internet in the 1990s.

Excerpts: The three, who used gadgetry on March 16 to calculate where a roulette ball would land, (...).
The scanner measured the speed of the ball as it was released by the croupier, identified where it fell and measured the declining orbit of the wheel, (...).
The information was beamed to the computer, which calculated on which section of numbers the ball would land. This information was then flashed onto the cellphone screen just before the wheel made its third spin, by which time all bets must be placed.
Editor's Note: This story is reminiscent of one of the origins of chaos theory, introduced by Doyne Farmer and the Santa Cruz "Eudaemonic Enterprises" back in the late 70s. Instead of a cell-phone display the predicted outcome was communicated via silent vibrators taped to the skin.
Sunlight to Fuel Hydrogen Future, Wired News
Excerpts: The photovoltaic cell is old news. The latest way to exploit the sun is through tiny materials that can directly convert sunlight into large amounts of hydrogen.
Hydrogen Solar of Guilford, England, and Altair Nanotechnologies are building a hydrogen-generation system that captures sunlight and uses the energy to break water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. (...)
The interaction of photons with a semiconductor material causes a photoelectrochemical reaction that excites electrons and causes water molecules to break up into hydrogen and oxygen, (...).
Excerpts: "It is well known that there is a power barrier for future increases in process speeds and device sizes, and to overcome this, the world needs a new, disruptive technology," said Dr. Schlegel. "A fundamental new idea gave our team the edge, (...)."
The invention employs a new method of processing digital data, known as analog decoding, which uses extremely low levels of power to execute its detection algorithm. The team's research shows no other reported chip uses a lower amount of energy consumed per decoded information bit.
Excerpts: Researchers at the University of California at Berkeley and University of Maryland have proposed a type of quantum bit that uses electron spin rather than atomic spin, and is easier to measure. Qubits in the researchers' scheme are connected through the magnetic interaction between atoms rather than the influence that closely positioned...

Genetic Code: Lucky Chance Or Fundamental Law Of Nature?, Phy. Life Rev.
Excerpt: The amount of publications devoted to the rise and structure of the genetic code is ever-increasing, which include semantic and structural analyses of the code as well as the problem of the origin of the code among others. The genetic code consisting of its triplet structure and canonical sets of nucleotides and amino acids was previously suggested to be a frozen accident or the result of accidental selection in the process of the evolution of a prebiotic system. These ideas are reviewed in this paper. It becomes clear that the information code is intrinsically related to the physical laws of the universe, (...).

Addiction as a Computational Process Gone Awry, Science
Abstract: Addictive drugs have been hypothesized to access the same neurophysiological mechanisms as natural learning systems. These natural learning systems can be modeled through temporal-difference reinforcement learning (TDRL), which requires a reward-error signal that has been hypothesized to be carried by dopamine. TDRL learns to predict reward by driving that reward-error signal to zero. By adding a noncompensable drug-induced dopamine increase to a TDRL model, a computational model of addiction is constructed that overselects actions leading to drug receipt. The model provides an explanation for important aspects of the addiction literature and provides a theoretic viewpoint with which to address other aspects. achieved reward was better than expected (d 9 0), then one should increase the value of the state that led to it. If it was no different from expected (d 0 0), than the situation is well learned and nothing needs to be changed. Because d transfers backward from reward states to anticipatory states with learning, actions can be chained together to learn sequences (6). This is the heart of the TDRL
China's Fermented Past: Pottery Yields Signs Of Oldest Known Wine, Science News
Analyses of ancient pottery have yielded evidence the people living in northern China 9,000 years ago concocted a fermented, winelike drink from rice, honey, and fruit.

Tool Use Confirmed In Monkeys, BBC News
Cambridge researchers observed wild capuchin monkeys in the Brazilian forest using stones to help them forage for food on an almost daily basis.
Hard times may make tool use more important
Scientists have already known for some time that capuchins use tools in captivity, but have only occasionally observed them doing so in the wild.
But the latest findings confirm that the tool use was habitual, or routine.
The monkeys used tools for digging, for cracking seeds and hollow branches, digging for tubers (...) and for probing tree holes or rock crevices.
New Technique Scans Electrical 'Brainscape', ScienceDaily
Excerpts: Using hairlike microelectrodes and computer analysis, neurobiologists at Duke University Medical Center have demonstrated that they can see the detailed instant-to-instant electrical "brainscape" of neural activity across a living brain. In their study on rats, they demonstrated that they could distinguish in unprecedented detail the patterns of brain activity -- including fleeting changes in communication among brain structures -- in awake animals, as they fall sleep and as they transition among different sleep stages. The study is important, not only for its insight into the sleep process, but because neurobiologists have strong evidence that memory consolidation occurs during sleep, (...).

Where Democracy's Greatest Enemy Is a Flower, NY Times
Excerpts: Having underestimated Afghanistan's narcotics problem since 2001, the international community now recognizes the connection between drugs and terrorism, and believes that urgent action is essential. But lessons from other nations show that today's quick wins can sow the seeds of future poppy harvests. Afghanistan's war on drugs will not be won quickly - nor can it be won without economic growth and political stability. Crop destruction "victories" will prove pyrrhic if Afghan farmers cannot find other ways to make a living and do not understand why drugs threaten their future.

Democracy's Dilemma: Environment, Social Equity, and the Global Economy, MIT Press
Book Announcement: The realities of global economic integration are far more complex than many of its supporters or detractors acknowledge. One consequence of simplistic thinking about globalization, claims Robert Paehlke, is that we tend to focus on economic prosperity to the neglect of such other important considerations as environmental and social well-being. A first step toward righting this imbalance is the recognition that economic gains do not guarantee better lives or better communities and societies. Democratic societies face a dilemma. (...) This book describes the consequences of this dilemma -- such as political cynicism and lack of democratic participation (...).
