Machine Learning and Physics-based Solutions for Drilling Automation
 
21:16
The drilling industry faces challenging market conditions that motivate the use of automation to reduce costs and decrease well manufacturing variability. The objective of this presentation is to motivate automation initiatives that utilize machine learning and physics-based models for predictive monitoring and control. This presentation explores current progress, challenges, and opportunities to control critical drilling conditions such as downhole pressure in Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD). The 3 essential elements of automation are explored with a perspective on recent advancements in automation due to downhole measurement availability through wired drillpipe. However, only a small fraction of drilling systems currently utilize wired drillpipe. In automated rig systems, there is additional potential to unlock the predictive capabilities of physics-based models to "see" into the near future to optimize and coordinate control actions. A convergence of several key technologies creates an opportunity to use sophisticated mathematical models within automation. A significant challenge is the size of the physics-based models that have too many adjustable parameters or are too slow in simulation to extract actionable information. This presentation shows how fit-for-purpose models can be used directly in the automation solutions. These fit-for-purpose models have unlocked new ways to think about automation in drilling. For example, rate optimization and pressure control have traditionally been separate applications in MPD. Simulation studies suggest significant potential improvement when combining the two applications. John Hedengren is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Brigham Young University. He received a PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. Previously, he developed the APMonitor Optimization Suite and worked with ExxonMobil on Advanced Process Control. His primary research focuses on accelerating automation technology in drilling. Other research interests include fiber optic monitoring, Intelli-fields, reservoir optimization, and unmanned aerial systems. In addition to drilling automation, he is a leader of the Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (C-UAS), applying UAV automation and optimization technology to energy infrastructure. #SPEDL #ModelPredictiveControl #MachineLearning #DeepLearning

COURTNEY BROWN :  REMOTE VIEWING THE WAR IN HEAVEN
 
01:28:26
Kerry interviews Courtney Brown from http://farsight.org about his team's remote viewing of the Bible phrase "war in heaven". GO to The Farsight Institute http:// www.farsight.org to view the sessions related to this topic. About RV: (from Farsight.org ..."Remote viewing is a controlled and trainable mental process involving psi (or psychic ability). It is used to transfer perceptual information across time and space. It is clear that remote viewing works in complete violation of the accepted "laws" of quantum and relativistic physics. So those "laws" are incomplete. There is a theory about why it works on the level of physics, but that theory has not yet gained mainstream acceptance. The core of that theory involves an interpretation of quantum mechanics that is known as the "Other Worlds" interpretation of the famous "two-slit experiment" that was developed by Hugh Everett and published in 1957. A majority of mainstream physicists currently do not support that theory, but the number of physicists who do support it is significant and growing. Remote-viewing procedures were originally developed in laboratories funded by the United States military and intelligence services and used for espionage purposes. The scientific understanding of the remote-viewing phenomenon has greatly advanced in recent years, and as a result the process of remote viewing can now be reliably demonstrated in both laboratory and operational settings. There are a number of styles of remote-viewing procedures that are popularly practiced, such as Scientific Remote Viewing (SRV), Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV), as well as a few others. Remote viewers use one or more of these styles to gather descriptive data of a "target," which is usually some place or event at some point in time. Remote viewing is always done under blind conditions, which means that the remote viewer must know nothing about the target when conducting the remote-viewing session. All of the various styles of remote viewing require both training and regular practice in order for a remote viewer to become proficient. Remote viewing is normally considered a controlled shifting of awareness that is performed in the normal waking state of consciousness, and it does not typically involve an out-of-body experience, hypnosis, an altered state of consciousness, or channeling."

Pat Dorsey: "The Little Book that Builds Wealth" | Talks at Google
 
01:10:15
What does it mean for a company to have a moat? What are the key drivers to valuation? Pat Dorsey will use examples to shed light on these, and more questions. About the Book: Capitalism works. That’s why most businesses with high returns on capital attract competition that forces down profitability over time. However, a small minority of companies are able to defy the laws of economic gravity by creating competitive advantages, or “economic moats” that insulate them from competition and allow them to maintain high returns on capital. After spending fifteen years analyzing thousands of companies, Pat has identified a handful of structural characteristics that create competitive advantage. He will discuss these characteristics, how management teams can create and destroy competitive advantage, and how he applies competitive analysis in managing institutional capital at Dorsey Asset Management. About the author: Pat is the founder of Dorsey Asset Management, which manages concentrated global portfolios for institutional investors. Prior to starting Dorsey Asset, Pat was Director of Research for Sanibel Captiva Trust, an independent trust company with approximately $1 billion in assets under management serving high net worth clients. From 2000 to 2011, Pat was Director of Equity Research for Morningstar, where he led the growth of Morningstar’s equity research group from 10 to over 100 analysts. Pat developed Morningstar’s economic moat ratings, as well as the methodology behind Morningstar's framework for analyzing competitive advantage. Pat is also the author of two books — The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing and The Little Book that Builds Wealth — and has been quoted in publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Fortune, the New York Times, and BusinessWeek. Pat holds a Master’s degree in Political Science from Northwestern University and a bachelor’s degree in government from Wesleyan University. He is a CFA charterholder.

Ex CIA Spook Robert Steele on Open Source Everything: Ethics is an Operating System
 
01:21:33
https://www.singularityweblog.com/robert-steele-open-source-everything/ Robert Steele is a very interesting person indeed: in the 1980s Robert was a clandestine CIA agent who believed not only in secrecy but also in Reagan’s right-wing politics and trickle down economics. Today Steele is the author of The Open Source Everything Manifesto: Transparency, Truth, and Trust. So how does a former spy and CIA intelligence professional, and Marine Corps infantry officer, become an honorary hacker, open source evangelist and the top Amazon reviewer devoted to non-fiction? Well, I invited Steele on my Singularity 1on1 podcast to ask him about that, as well as a few other things. During our 82 min discussion with Robert Steele we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: whether humanity is making progress or not; failed states, regime change and ISIS; The Open-Source Everything Manifesto; smart cities and nature; shifting from secrecy to open source; producing more actionable intelligence than the entire US intelligence complex; collecting systems versus sharing and processing systems; capitalism, the singularity and true cost economics; industrialization, education and being a sheep; open source everything as a way to unleash our entrepreneurial capabilities; polarization and the preconditions for revolution; panarchy as extreme democracy and informed self-governance; ethics and integrity… My three favorite quotes that I will take away from this conversation with Robert Steele are: “The chasm, the gap between people with power and people with knowledge is now catastrophic.” “Open source intelligence is the application of the craft of intelligence, legally and ethically, to create smart cities, smart nations, smart companies and smart citizens. It’s about not being a sheep.” “Ethics is about the truth. And transparency. And trust. Ethics is how a civilization hands on the lessons of history, from one generation to the next. Ethics is the cultural code for getting the most out of any group and any situation with the least amount of damage and the least amount of waste. So ethics is an operating system.” Help us caption & translate this video! http://amara.org/v/HpW1/

Stagflation for USA Indefinite, Chris Martenson of PeakProsperity.com Interview
 
22:14
Seize the Opportunity in Gold: http://BrazilResources.com GUEST: http://PeakProsperity.com - Full Transcript here: http://fmtblog.com/?p=11125 Partial Transcript: FutureMoneyTrends.com: Thank you for joining us at FutureMoneyTrends.com, I'm here with Chris Martenson. You may have seen his work with The Crash Course or read his book The Crash Course as well. My first contact with him, it was about in 2008. I've been listening to his stuff, he went on to start a website, Peak Prosperity. When I hear peak prosperity, sir thank you for joining us, Chris Martenson: Thank you for having me. FutureMoneyTrends.com: Peak prosperity, it sounds a little depressing. So what is the overall objective of your website peak prosperity, because people can become free members and paid members. What is your ultimate objective through that site? Chris Martenson: The ultimate objective is we're trying to create a world worth inheriting. We truly believe that there are extraordinary changes coming, that we're at a key turning point not just in U.S. history but in human history. And the idea behind peak prosperity is that there always ways to be prosperous, but we have to make sure we have the right story, the right narrative, in play. And so a lot of our work is really around educating people, is providing context. We have a significant piece of work on there called 'The Crash Course' which you mentioned is really a full tour through the economy, energy, the environment, would be key context that people need to understand where we are in this story. If you get to the same conclusion-ary points that we arrive at when we come through this material, you understand that the next twenty years are going to be completely unlike the last twenty years. Now, that's important if your financial adviser is telling you "do what worked in the past." We don't think that's going to work so well in the future, in fact we believe the whole idea of investment needs to be broadened out to include investment in yourself, in your physical health, in your household, in things where we can identify solid, tangible returns and that's better than anything wall street can offer at this point in time I think. That's our point. FutureMoneyTrends.com: Most people you know, they're saving for their retirement, they're expecting this 8% return over the long term, but because of some very fundamental changes in our economy and our natural resources, you have advised people to make some changes to their investments. What are those? Chris Martenson: Well, the main thesis is this, that given what we're seeing happening in both the fiscal and the monetary level in the US, but of course this is happening in Japan and it's happening in Europe, it's happening all over the world at this point in time, that there's going to be another global moment where there's going to be an extraordinary wealth transfer. And it's gonna be a fairly chaotic transition, it might happen over a matter of months, maybe a few years. But when the dust settles people are going to discover that they were either on the wrong side of the line or the right side. And if you were on the right side you have an opportunity to protect your purchasing power, to uh maybe even advance it a little bit, but to live a very reasonable high quality life, we're going to have to make a few adjustments along the way. I truly believe that the living standards that we've enjoyed up to this point in time have been subsidized and fueled by a lot of things, not the least of which has been cheap energy, that's gone. So one of the ideas is we would ask people to invest in and around themselves; around the idea that cheap energy and cheap oil is never coming back. So there's all kinds of decisions you might make around that including how your home is heated, how it's insulated, how close you live to work, how you transport yourself, things like that that we think if you can make an investment today that will reduce your future cash flow for energy costs than you are in a position to...that's an investment. Normally we think of an investment that puts X in, and I get X plus Y in the future. But if you can put X in, and have to pay X minus Y in the future going forward, that's an investment just as well. So that's just one small example but we think that the implications of this story literally touch on every facet of life going forward.

Machine learning in the trenches: Lessons applying machine learning to our most - BRK3032
 
44:52
Office 365 strongly invests in protecting the infrastructure that powers our service and stores customer data. A major part of our philosophy is to “assume breach” – that is, we build systems that disrupt and stop any attacks that may occur against our infrastructure before data is compromised. Security monitoring is a big part of this. Our security monitoring system must be fast, accurate, and robust. But the Office 365 service is complex, and attackers are growing increasingly sophisticated. As a result, to effectively catch the most sophisticated attackers our monitoring must include advanced detection techniques based on machine learning and other analytical methods.

Electronic power conditioning and control of the production and distribution of electricity are important aspects of the smart grid.Smart grid policy is organized in Europe as Smart Grid European Technology Platform. Policy in the United States is described in 42 U.S.C. ch. 152, subch. IX § 17381. Roll-out of smart grid technology also implies a fundamental re-engineering of the electricity services industry, although typical usage of the term is focused on the technical infrastructure.

Computer science defines AI research as the study of "intelligent agents": any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals. More specifically, Kaplan and Haenlein define AI as “a system’s ability to correctly interpret external data, to learn from such data, and to use those learnings to achieve specific goals and tasks through flexible adaptation”. Colloquially, the term "artificial intelligence" is applied when a machine mimics "cognitive" functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as "learning" and "problem solving".The scope of AI is disputed: as machines become increasingly capable, tasks considered as requiring "intelligence" are often removed from the definition, a phenomenon known as the AI effect, leading to the quip in Tesler's Theorem, "AI is whatever hasn't been done yet." For instance, optical character recognition is frequently excluded from "artificial intelligence", having become a routine technology. Modern machine capabilities generally classified as AI include successfully understanding human speech, competing at the highest level in strategic game systems (such as chess and Go), autonomously operating cars, and intelligent routing in content delivery networks and military simulations.

03:19:15
4/1/16 This half-day event, organized in parallel with the “Voices and Visions of St. Louis” conference by Designing Justice, a student-led initiative at the GSD, will highlight ongoing student work at the GSD that explores issues of equity, race, and social justice. The works-in-progress will deal with themes such as gentrification, displacement, mobility, access, education, informality, policing, and political agency. It will build on recent endeavors at the GSD such as Black in Design; Map the Gap; Design, Development, and Democracy; The MLK Way; and others. The exhibited and presented work will span disciplines, geographies, and scales and will take a variety of forms, such as studio projects, written work, video, built work, and independent research studies. range of epistemologies and ideas that have been examined during the day’s sessions, and to engage in a conversation about next steps. What social, spatial, political, and/or economic projects should be researched, designed, or implemented in order to put St. Louis on a different trajectory? What kind of interventions, and at what scale, might result in the best outcome for all? How should St. Louis deal with the high-priority issues of mobility, housing, education, policing, and urban design practices to address the injustices and divisions of the past? And finally, who should be involved in discussion and action, and how should these individuals or collectivities be gathered together and organized to proceed?

Labor activists—usually British, German, or Jewish immigrants—founded the Socialist Labor Party in 1877. The Socialist Party of America was established in 1901. By that time, anarchism also established itself around the country while socialists of different tendencies were involved in early American labor organizations and struggles which reached a high point in the Haymarket affair in Chicago which started International Workers' Day as the main workers holiday around the world (except in the United States, which celebrates Labor Day on the first Monday of September) and making the 8-hour day a worldwide objective by workers organizations and socialist parties worldwide.Under Socialist Party of America presidential candidate Eugene V. Debs, socialist opposition to World War I led to the governmental repression collectively known as the First Red Scare. The Socialist Party declined in the 1920s, but nonetheless often ran Norman Thomas for President. In the 1930s, the Communist Party USA took importance in labor and racial struggles while it suffered a split which converged in the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party. In the 1950s, socialism was affected by McCarthyism and in the 1960s it was revived by the general radicalization brought by the New Left and other social struggles and revolts. In the 1960s, Michael Harrington and other socialists were called to assist the Kennedy administration and then the Johnson administration's War on Poverty and Great Society while socialists also played important roles in the Civil Rights Movement. Socialism in the United States has been composed of many tendencies, often in important disagreements with each other; it has included utopian socialists, social democrats, democratic socialists, communists, Trotskyists and anarchists. The socialist movement in the United States has historically been relatively weak. Unlike socialist parties in Europe, Canada and Oceania, a major social democratic party never materialized in the United States and the socialist movement remains marginal, "almost unique in its powerlessness among the Western democracies". In the United States, socialism "brings considerable stigma, in large part for its association with authoritarian communist regimes". A June 2015 Gallup poll revealed that 47% of respondents would vote for a socialist President while 50% would not. Willingness to vote for a socialist President was 59% among Democrats, 49% among independents and 26% among Republicans. An October 2015 poll found that 49% of Democrats had a favorable view of socialism compared to 37% for capitalism. According to a 2013 article in The Guardian: "Contrary to popular belief, Americans don't have an innate allergy to socialism. Milwaukee has had several socialist mayors (Frank Zeidler, Emil Seidel, and Daniel Hoan). In 1920, Socialist Party presidential candidate Eugene V. Debs won nearly 1m [million] v ...

For instance, optical character recognition is frequently excluded from "artificial intelligence", having become a routine technology. Modern machine capabilities generally classified as AI include successfully understanding human speech, competing at the highest level in strategic game systems (such as chess and Go), autonomously operating cars, and intelligent routing in content delivery networks and military simulations. Artificial intelligence was founded as an academic discipline in 1956, and in the years since has experienced several waves of optimism, followed by disappointment and the loss of funding (known as an "AI winter"), followed by new approaches, success and renewed funding. For most of its history, AI research has been divided into subfields that often fail to communicate with each other. These sub-fields are based on technical considerations, such as particular goals (e.g. "robotics" or "machine learning"), the use of particular tools ("logic" or artificial neural networks), or deep philosophical differences. Subfields have also been based on social factors (particular institutions or the work of particular researchers).The traditional problems (or goals) of AI research include reasoning, knowledge representation, planning, learning, natural language processing, perception and the ability to move and manipulate objects. General intelligence is among the field's long-term goals. Approaches include statistical methods, computational intelligence, and traditional symbolic AI. Many tools are used in AI, including versions of search and mathematical optimization, artificial neural networks, and methods based on statistics, probability and economics. The AI field draws upon computer science, information engineering, mathematics, psychology, linguistics, philosophy, and many others. The field was founded on the claim that human intelligence "can be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it". This raises philosophical arguments about the nature of the mind and the ethics of creating artificial beings endowed with human-like intelligence which are issues that have been explored by myth, fiction and philosophy since antiquity. Some people also consider AI to be a danger to humanity if it progresses unabated. Others believe that AI, unlike previous technological revolutions, will create a risk of mass unemployment.In the twenty-first century, AI techniques have experienced a resurgence following concurrent advances in computer power, large amounts of data, and theoretical understanding; and AI techniques have become an essential part of the technology industry, helping to solve many challenging problems in computer science, software engineering and operations research.
