How a Computer Knows What Many Managers Don't, NYTimes
Excerpts: IF movies like "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "The Matrix" are any indication, humans are not comfortable with the idea of artificial intelligence controlling their fate.
So why ever trust a computer model to run your investments? Because, in the real world, it seems to pay off.
Many mutual funds that make their trades based on the recommendations of a proprietary computer model, known as quantitative or quant funds, have outperformed their benchmarks in the last three years. And investors have noticed.
At the Vanguard Group, which created its first such fund in 1985, the amount of money managed by its quantitative group has quintupled in the last three years, to $20 billion at the end of 2005 from $4 billion in 2002.
Seeking Answers From The Cosmic Consciousness, AP/Boston Globe
Excerpts: By yesterday afternoon, nearly 17,000 Yahoo Inc. users had responded.
Hawking's question: ``In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years?" (...)
Yahoo Answers, like an offering from Google Inc. and one planned by Microsoft Corp., is among the services aimed at tapping the collective intelligence. It's based on the premise that humans as a group can do a better job at finding information than machines or any single person can.
What Kind of Genius Are You?, Wired
Excerpts: A new theory suggests that creativity comes in two distinct types -- quick and dramatic, or careful and quiet. "Conceptual innovators" make bold, dramatic leaps in their disciplines. They do their breakthrough work when they are young. "Experimental innovators" proceed by a lifetime of trial and error and thus do their important work much...
Are You Reading The News?, PhysicsWeb
If you think you're reading the news, be warned that this story -- and any other on the web -- will be barely read by anyone 36 hours after it was first posted. (...) number of people who read news stories on the web decays with time in a power law, and not exponentially as commonly thought. Most news becomes old hat within a day and a half of being posted - (...) understand how information gets transferred in biological cells and social networks (...).
The skeleton of the studied web portal has 933 nodes. The area of the circle assigned to each node in the figure is proportional to the logarithm of the total number of visits to the corresponding web document. The widths of the links are proportional to the logarithm of the total number of times the hyperlink was used by the surfers on the portal. The central largest node corresponds to the main page origo.hu directly connected to several other highly visited sites (image and text: Phys. Rev. E 73 066132).
Length Of Residence And Media Usage, Social Sc. J.
Excerpts: This article uses data from the 2002 National Election Survey to investigate the relationship between length of residence and media use to consider whether recent movers might use the media as a source of information about their new communities. Results show that frequency of watching national news, watching local news, and reading a newspaper increases with length of residence. (...) Older individuals who have more community interest and live in a place longer make greater use of available media. Better-educated individuals also read the paper more, but watch local news less. (...)

Self-organization of Price Fluctuation Distribution in Evolving Markets, arXiv
Excerpts: Financial markets can be seen as complex systems in non-equilibrium steady state, one of whose most important properties is the distribution of price fluctuations. Recently, there have been assertions that this distribution is qualitatively different in emerging markets as compared to developed markets. Here we analyse both high-frequency tick-by-tick as well as daily closing price data to show that the price fluctuations in the Indian stock market, one of the largest emerging markets, have a distribution that is identical to that observed for developed markets (e.g., NYSE).(...) We conclude that the ``inverse cubic law'' is a truly universal feature of a financial market, independent of its stage of development or the condition of the underlying economy.
Excerpts: The coming elimination of the barrier between living and nonliving materials will lead to "animats" (living materials) -- nanobiotechnology devices that can survive and function inside human beings, derive energy from biological metabolism, and copy themselves by molecular self-assembly. When that moment happens, it very likely may be beyond our control....

'Smart' Spacecraft Makes Its Own Decisions, NYTimes
Excerpts: A future space mission to Titan, Saturn's intriguing moon enveloped in clouds, might deploy a blimp to float around the thick atmosphere and survey the sand dunes and carved valleys below.
But the blimp's ability to communicate would be limited. A message would take about an hour and a half to travel more than 800 million miles to Earth, and any response would take another hour and a half to get to Titan.
Three hours would be a long time to wait if the message were: ¡§Help! I'm caught in a downdraft.¡¨ And if the blimp were to spot something unusual such as an eruption of an ice volcano, it might have drifted away before it received the command to ¡§take a closer look.¡¨
"Smart" orbs, now being tested on the space station, may become NASA's worker bees in space, using computers, position sensors, and tiny thrusters made to maneuver with precision. Able to fly in precision formation, the robots may one day hold the key to building everything from huge space telescopes that can peer deeply into the universe...

Computers Learn Common Sense, The Engineer
Excerpts: BBN Technologies has been awarded $5.5 million in funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the first phase of "Integrated Learner," which will learn plans or processes after being shown a single example. The goal is to combine specialised domain knowledge with common sense knowledge to create a reasoning system...
High-Tech Prosthetics: Out On A Limb, TheDeal.com
Excerpts: Advances such as telemedicine and the use of wireless devices in hospitals have become an accepted part of medical technology, but the notion of replacing limbs with computer-powered devices seems more like something out of "RoboCop" or "The $6 Million Man."
Since as far back as the Civil War, prosthetic limbs have consisted of unwieldy lumps of wood, plastic or metal. While some advances in materials have improved comfort for amputees, prosthetics still lack the responsiveness and feel of actual limbs.
Mushroom Drug Produces Mystical Experience, AP/Forbes.com
Excerpts: People who took an illegal drug made from mushrooms reported profound mystical experiences that led to behavior changes lasting for weeks - all part of an experiment that recalls the psychedelic '60s.
Many of the 36 volunteers rated their reaction to a single dose of the drug, called psilocybin, as one of the most meaningful or spiritually significant experiences of their lives. Some compared it to the birth of a child or the death of a parent. (...)
Each visit lasted eight hours. The volunteers lay on a couch in a living-room-like setting, wearing an eye mask and listening to classical music. They were encouraged to focus their attention inward.
Psilocybin's effects lasted for up to six hours, Griffiths said. Twenty-two of the 36 volunteers reported having a "complete" mystical experience, compared to four of those getting methylphenidate.
Magic Mushrooms Really Cause 'Spiritual' Experiences, NewScientist.com
Excerpts: "Magic" mushrooms really do have a spiritual effect on people, according to Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine researchers. They used found that 22 of the 36 volunteers had a "complete" mystical experience after taking...
What stands out about these systems is far greater clarity - you can actually see a 3-D map of individual blood vessels and tell from the colour how oxygenated the blood is. They are also safe enough to be used continuously, unlike other imaging methods.
Ever wondered what's going on in the tiny mind of a newborn baby, or how a footballer takes that perfect kick? Or even why brain scanning kits often look like mental torture instruments from a sci-fi B-movie?
One such device uses optical tomography to assess brain function in newborn and premature babies, by measuring the flight times of photons across the head. The result is 3-D images of blood volume and oxygenation.
Mathematics: Enhanced: Exploring Musical Space, Science
Excerpts: A musical score is a graph whose vertical axis represents pitch and whose horizontal axis represents time. Given this apparent simplicity, and the recognition since the time of Pythagoras that mathematical principles underlie many musical phenomena, it is perhaps surprising that our understanding of the mathematical structure of the spaces in which musical phenomena operate remains fragmentary. But as Tymoczko shows on page 72 (1), even the pitch domain is vastly more complex than it may first appear.
The Geometry of Musical Chords, Science
Excerpts: Chords can be mapped as points onto a many-fold surface, on which consonant chords cluster together, connected by melodic lines that reveal western harmony and counterpoint.
Excerpts: A wearable detection device could help millions of people who suffer from epilepsy.
Researchers at MIT and Harvard are preparing to carry out trials of a new device for treating epilepsy. If successful, it would be the first such device to automatically detect and treat seizures, says John Guttag, at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, who developed it with colleague Ali Shoeb and Steven Schachter, a neurologist at Harvard Medical School, in Boston.
Medical Entomology: Keeping the Bugs at Bay, Science
Excerpts: Bug-repellent research, long waged on primitive levels and with mixed results, may be looking up. The developed world once viewed repellents chiefly as products for backyard comfort, but with the spread of insect-borne agents such as West Nile virus, they have become a public-health issue. There is also growing recognition that vector-borne diseases routinely devastate the developing world; in Africa alone, 800,000 children die from malaria every year. Expensive research into vaccines, medicines, and genetic modifications to wild insects has so far delivered little, so many scientists are going back to basics: insecticides, bed netting, and repellents.
Was There Life On Mars? Shiny Rock Coating May Hold The Answer, ScienceDaily
Excerpts: A mysterious shiny coating found on rocks in many of Earth's arid environments could reveal whether there was once life on Mars, according to new research. (...) reveals that the dark coating known as desert varnish creates a record of life around it, by binding traces of DNA, amino acids and other organic compounds to desert rocks. Samples of Martian desert varnish could therefore show whether there has been life on Mars at any stage over the last 4.5 billion years. (...)
Medium Is The Message For Stem Cells In Search Of Identities, ScienceDaily
Excerpts: Embryonic stem cells, prized for their astonishing ability to apparently transform into any kind of cell in the body, acquire their identities in part by interacting with their surroundings - even when they are outside of the body in a laboratory dish, University of Florida scientists report. Using an animal model of embryonic stem cell development, researchers (...) have begun to answer one of the most fundamental questions in science - how does a batch of immature cells give rise to an organ as extraordinarily complex as the human brain? (...)
Developmental Biology: Morphing into Shape, Science
Excerpts: In segmented organisms, such as flies and humans, similar structures that differ mainly in size and shape are produced in several locations along the main body axis. For example, humans produce arms and legs, largely using many of the same developmental mechanisms to pattern both organs. In fruit flies, two flying appendages, the wings and halteres (see the figure), also are built largely by shared developmental mechanisms. Halteres are delicate club-shaped organs that work like gyroscopes during flight. They evolved about 225 million years ago from more traditional-looking wings--such as the hind wings of butterflies--and have undergone a drastic reduction in size.
Chemistry: Self-Assembly in Action, Science
Excerpts: In 1983, Aaron Klug showed that tobacco mosaic virus and other biological complexes are self-assembling, self-nucleating, and self-checking. Chemists soon found that the same principles apply to the self-assembly of complex synthetic systems. Today, synthetic complexes can mimic helical rod-like and spherical biological systems. However, although their structure and functions have received much attention, the mechanism of their formation remains poorly understood. On page 80 of this issue, Jonkheijm et al. report on a detailed study of the process of molecular self-assembly in solution and show it to be similar to a phase transition commonly associated with ordered solids or liquid crystals.
Bacteria Made To Sprout Conducting Nanowires, NewScientist
Pacific Northwest National Laboratories researchers have coaxed Shewanella oneidensis -- a bacterium that dumps electrons onto metal -- into producing nanowires by growing it in vats that carefully control the amount of oxygen available. A clearer understanding of the way bacterial nanowires form should allow engineers to make more...

Evolutionary Games And Population Dynamics: Maintenance Of Cooperation In Public Goods Games, Proc. Biol. Sc.
Excerpts: The emergence and abundance of cooperation in nature poses a tenacious and challenging puzzle to evolutionary biology. Cooperative behaviour seems to contradict Darwinian evolution because altruistic individuals increase the fitness of other members of the population at a cost to themselves. Thus, in the absence of supporting mechanisms, cooperation should decrease and vanish, as predicted by classical models for cooperation in evolutionary game theory, such as the Prisoner's Dilemma and public goods games. (...) Here, we incorporate ecological dynamics into evolutionary games and reveal a new mechanism for maintaining cooperation.
A Killer Whale Social Network Is Vulnerable To Targeted Removals, Biol. Lett.
Excerpt: Individuals play various roles in maintaining social integrity of mammalian populations. However, many models (...) assume that all individuals are equal. Killer whales are social animals that rely on relationships within and among family groups for survival. (...) killer whale populations are composed of matrilines from which offspring do not disperse. We analysed the influence of various individuals' age, sex and matrilineal affiliation on their position in a social network. Here, we show that some matrilines appeared to play more central roles than others in the network. Furthermore, juvenile whales, especially females, appeared to play a central role in maintaining network cohesion. (...)
Global Biodiversity Conservation Priorities, Science
Abstract: The location of and threats to biodiversity are distributed unevenly, so prioritization is essential to minimize biodiversity loss. To address this need, biodiversity conservation organizations have proposed nine templates of global priorities over the past decade. Here, we review the concepts, methods, results, impacts, and challenges of these prioritizations of conservation practice within the theoretical irreplaceability/vulnerability framework of systematic conservation planning. Most of the templates prioritize highly irreplaceable regions; some are reactive (prioritizing high vulnerability), and others are proactive (prioritizing low vulnerability). We hope this synthesis improves understanding of these prioritization approaches and that it results in more efficient allocation of geographically flexible conservation funding.

Condensed-Matter Physics: Superfluidity In The Picture, Nature
Excerpts: Strongly interacting atomic Fermi gases ¡X useful models for many other exotic forms of matter ¡X enter a superfluid state at low temperatures. The first direct observation of that transition has been made.
Fermions are the building-blocks of the Universe. Strongly interacting gases of these particles make up atomic nuclei, the matter in neutron stars and the quark-gluon plasma of the Big Bang. These systems differ greatly in size and energy but have a lot in common; knowledge of one system therefore illuminates our understanding of the others.
Population and Warfare: A Test of the Turchin Model in Puebloan Societies, SFI Working Papers
Excerpt: Ecologist Peter Turchin and anthropologist Andrey Korotayev (2006) propose that pre-state societies exhibit a deterministic relationship between population size and incidence of internal warfare or sociopolitical instability. We examine their model with data from Southwest Colorado between A.D. 600 and 1300 and find that it fits well during those periods when this area is a more or less closed system. It fits poorly during the time from about A.D. 1000-1200 when this area is heavily influenced first by the spread of the Chacoan system, and then, by its collapse and the local political reorganization that follows. (...)
Corporate Warriors: The State and Changing Forms of Private Armed Force in America, Current Perspectives in Social Theory
Excerpts: In recent years, and especially with the war in Iraq, the U.S. military's reliance on private contractors as forces in the theater of war has grown and become increasingly clear. We critically evaluate some of the best literature on the emergence of this phenomenon â€" especially Ken Silverstein's Private Warriors and P. W. Singer's Corporate Warriors: The Rise of the Privatized Military Industry â€" and find a neglect of the historical path-dependent character of the rise of the new corporate armed forces. (...)
Complex Challenges: Global Terrorist Network
Terrorist Had Been Trying To Set Up Global Network: Experts, Sidney Morning Herald
Excerpts: At the time of his death, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was trying to transform his organisation from one focused on the Iraqi insurgency into a global operation capable of striking far beyond Iraq's borders, intelligence experts in Jordan and the West say.
High-ranking Jordanian security officials say Zarqawi sought volunteers to fight in Iraq and others to become suicide bombers there. But he also recruited about 300 people who went to Iraq for terrorist training and sent them back to their home countries, where they await orders to carry out strikes.
Pakistan Rejects Mumbai Bomb Link, BBC News
Excerpts: Pakistan's Foreign Minister Khurshid Kasuri has reacted angrily to suggestions his country could be to blame for the Mumbai train bombings.
He said India should be careful about linking the attacks, which killed 200 people, to militants based in Pakistan. India's foreign ministry has called on Pakistan to take action against militants operating from its territory. Police have detained about 300 people for questioning in a series of raids, and released sketches of suspects.
