In fantasy stories, charlatans in fancy robes promise to turn lead into gold. But real alchemists weren’t just mystical misers. They were skilled experimentalists, backed by theories of matter. And they played a huge role in the development of knowledge about one of our fundamental questions: “what is stuff?” *** Crash Course is on Patreon!

A brief history of logic: Aristotle and deduction | Set Theory Math Foundations 251 | NJ Wildberger
 
28:58
In this video we begin to examine the history of logic from its early beginnings in ancient Greece, with the work of Parmenides, Zeno, Plato and then Aristotle. It was Aristotle who almost single handedly set out the modern theory of logic as it was to be for two thousand years until the modern European era. Aristotle is concerned with correct logical inference based on what are called syllogisms, and these have been categorized, and given amusing names by later writers. His aim was to strengthen dialectics, to assure correct deductions in arguments, and for logic to be an educational vehicle.

Research and social innovation: The potential for European foundations to pave the way
 
03:17
Foundations and their partners came together at the EFC Research Forum Stakeholders' conference on 9-10 February 2012 in Barcelona to explore how best to transform research solutions into social innovations. The conference entitled "Research and social innovation: The potential for European foundations to pave the way" comes at a time of unprecedented socio-economic and political turmoil, when the natural reflex may be to tighten belts. While this might seem sensible in the short term, it cannot come at the expense of investing in solutions for the future.
A brief history of logic: from Leibniz to Boole | Math Foundations 254 | N J Wildberger
 
28:07
In the modern European era, medieval logic is replaced with new directions, motivated by an increased interest in systematizing reasoning. A prominent thinker in this direction is G. Leibniz, who applied his genius to, among many other things, the idea of a computing device and language that might allow systematic, even mechanical reasoning. In the 18th century, Euler, Lambert and Ploucquet introduced diagrams for representing logical relations. And then in the 19th century we move to more dramatic developments, largely due to the work of De Morgan and George Boole. We include some original work by Boole himself to get a sense of his thinking. This is when mathematics first intrudes on classical logic, presenting an algebraic approach to Aristotle's syllogisms, while both expanding the subject and restricting its interpretation to binary possibilities.

A brief History of Logic: Medieval and Arabic Logic | Math Foundations 253 | N J Wildberger
 
21:56
We examine how Aristotle's work on logic came to dominate both medieval and Arabic work on the subject. An important contributor to this development was Boethius (477-524 A.D) who translated Aristotle and made commentary on it. While the Dark Ages in Europe was not conducive to scientific or mathematical thought, the Islamic scholars based in Baghdad, Persia, Uzbekistan, and other places took up ancient Greek work as well as Hindu arithmetic, and developed both further. Included in these were thinkers al-Kindi and Avicenna, who explored modes of logic statements. Along similar lines, medieval logicians explored variants and more subtle aspects of Aristotle's logic, including Peter Abelard, William of Ockham and Jean Buridan.

What future for the European Union – Stagnation and Polarisation or New Foundations? (Part I)
 
01:19:55
What future for the European Union – Stagnation and Polarisation or New Foundations? Almost seven years after the outbreak of the financial and economic crisis, the EU economy is on the brink of a deflationary recession. Levels of unemployment are at unacceptably high levels, inequality is soaring, poverty and social exclusion have reappeared in European societies at levels that were unimaginable a few years ago. This is particularly true for Southern European countries like Greece and Spain, which were severely hit by the economic crisis and subjected to rigorous policies of austerity and structural adjustment. It is thus no coincidence that social movements and political forces like Syriza in Greece and Podemos in Spain have appeared in these countries that fundamentally question the prevailing EU crisis approach and demand a fundamental change in economic and social policies. How can a new foundation for European integration look like and what measures are needed to enforce it? The presentation of the EuroMemorandum 2015 on march 5th, 2015 at the C3 - Centre for International Development in Vienna offered a critical assessment of the current state of the European Union and proposals for an alternative economic policy in the EU by an international panel of heterodox economists will address these issues.

Greeks Romans Vikings The Founders Of Europe - Episode 1: The Greeks - History Documentary HD
 
50:35
Greeks Romans Vikings The Founders Of Europe - Episode 1: The Greeks - History Documentary HD. Ancient Greece, the cradle of modern Europe. Around 3000 years ago, the cultural foundations of western civilisation were laid right here, on the shores of the Mediterranean. It’s the birthplace of democracy, where great thinkers forged the beginnings of scientific reasoning, where theatre was turned into mass entertainment, and where the Olympic Games began. Imaginative animation, stunning visuals and an entertaining narrative combine in an extraordinary exploration of Greece and the rise of an ancient super-power that would leave a permanent mark on society. Good SBS documentary, from Germany, in German & Greek. Please be merciful with the parts where Greeks (who don't really look like Greeks but rather like Middle Easterns) speak German... :) ........................................................ The legacy of the Greeks is under assault today thus deserves defence and celebration for the simple reason that much of what we are is the result of that brilliant examination of human life first begun by the Greeks; as Jacob Burckhardt says, "We see with the eyes of the Greeks and use their phrases when we speak." We must listen to the Greeks not because they will give us answers, but because they first identified the questions and problems, and they knew too where the answers must come from: the minds of free human beings who have control over their own lives. And this, finally, is the greatest good we have received from the Greeks: the gift of freedom. The Greeks are accused by some of stealing their achievements from Egyptians and Babylonians, of oppressing their wives and daughters, and of hypocritically speculating about freedom while holding slaves. And that is the greatest irony: the spirit of criticism that among so many academics has fossilized into a pose has its origins nowhere but among the Greeks, who were the first to question critically everything from the gods to political power to their very selves, the first to live what Socrates called “the examined life”. As Victor Hanson and John Heath write, “Not one of the multicultural classicists really wishes to live under indigenous pre–Colombian ideas of government, Arabic protocols for female behaviour, Chinese canons of medical ethics, Islamic traditions of church and state, African approaches to science, Japanese ideas of race, Indian social castes, or Native American notions of private property.” Classic Greek culture has come under attack precisely because its achievement, extended into history, is what defines the West and makes it distinct. What is valuable in the much abused Western tradition, hence the examined life, the pursuit of truth, the dialogue about the place of the individual in the larger group, comes from the Greeks. Humanism, reason, the pursuit of knowledge and the arts, moderation and civic responsibility, all come from the Greeks. The failings of the Greeks, including not living up to their own ideals, are the failings of humanity everywhere. But their ideals, still alive today, led to the recognition of a common humanity that was more important than gender or social status, more profound than local or tribal affiliations. Without this insight, slavery might never have been abolished in the West, women might never have been granted equality, and the liberal notion that all humans possess innate rights merely as a virtue of being human would never have existed. (Bruce Thornton, “Greek Ways: How the Greeks Created Western Civilization”, 2002, "Defending the Greeks", Private Papers, 2005, Victor Davis Hanson, John Heath, “Who Killed Homer: The Demise of Classical Education and the Recovery of Greek Wisdom, 1998”)

Volkswagen Foundation supports junior researchers: European XFEL
 
04:50
The Volkswagen Foundation (https://www.volkswagenstiftung.de) launched a funding initiative in 2010 – the Peter Paul Ewald Fellowships – to prepare the next generation of scientists for application of a groundbreaking technology: The European XFEL in Schenefeld near Hamburg. The X-Ray Free-Electron Laser can be used to take three-dimensional images of the nanocosmos, film chemical processes and elucidate molecular structures – all with a previously inconceivable brilliance. The European XFEL generates up to 27,000 x-ray laser pulses per second, with a brilliance that is billions of times higher than that of the best conventional x-ray radiation sources and a wavelength so minute that even atomic-level details become visible – for instance in biomolecules, viruses, and cells. The Ewald Fellows of Volkswagen Foundation were provided with the opportunity to carry out experiments with one of the most powerful x-ray laser at LCLS in Stanford for periods of up to two years. In order to allow participants to transfer their newly acquired know-how to the European XFEL, their research stays at the LCLS are followed by a period of funding at a German research institution. BACKGROUND INFORMATION The Ewald Fellowships of Volkswagen Foundation provided support for postdocs conducting cutting-edge research with free-electron lasers. Free-electron lasers for hard X-rays are creating completely new research opportunities in the natural sciences. By means of ultra short and intensive X-ray flashes, scientists hope to unravel the atomic structure of bio-molecules as well as cells and viruses, and they will also be able to film chemical reactions and matter under extreme conditions – to mention just a few of the possible applications. The first laser capable of doing these things was the LCLS (Linac Coherent Light Source) at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory of Stanford University, USA. Since then the European XFEL (X-Ray Free-Electron Laser) at Hamburg/Schenefeld – opening in 2017 – and other facilities were built. SCOPE OF FUNDING The aim of the terminated funding initiative entitled “Research with Free-Electron Lasers: Peter-Paul-Ewald Fellowships at the LCLS in Stanford” – named after Peter Paul Ewald (1888-1985), a pioneer of x-ray techniques – is to provide support for young researchers working in the area of free-electron lasers. Funding was granted for a period of three years – part of which in Stanford, and part at a hosting institution in Germany. The idea was to provide grantees with the opportunity to carry out experiments with one of the most powerful x-ray laser at LCLS in Stanford. In order to allow participants to transfer their newly acquired know-how to the European XFEL, their research stays at the LCLS are followed by a period of funding at a German research institution. SYMPOSIA AND SUMMER SCHOOLS In addition to the Fellowships, the Volkswagen Foundation is able to support Symposia and Summer Schools dealing with the topic of free-electron lasers in accordance with the usual conditions for symposia programs. STATUS SYMPOSIA For the presentation of results and for networking among the fellows several status symposia were and will be organized: in October 2017 at DESY/European XFEL in Hamburg, in April 2016 at SLAC in Stanford, and in November 2014 at Herrenhausen Palace in Hanover. BACKGROUND FUNDING INITIATIVE The funding initiative entitled “Research with Free-Electron Lasers: Peter-Paul-Ewald Fellowships at the LCLS in Stanford” was started in 2010. The closing call was in 2015.

The science of emotions: Jaak Panksepp at TEDxRainier
 
17:40
Given an inherent subjective nature, emotions have long been a nearly impenetrable topic for scientific research. Affective neuroscientist Jaak Panksepp explains a modern approach to emotions, and how taking seriously the emotions of other animals might soon improve the lives of millions. Jaak Panksepp introduced the concept of Affective Neuroscience in 1990, consisting of an overarching vision of how mammalian brains generate experienced affective states in animals, as effective models for fathoming the primal evolutionary sources of emotional feelings in human beings. This work has implications for further developments in Biological Psychiatry, ranging from an understanding of the underlying brain disorders, to new therapeutic strategies. Panksepp is a Ph.D. Professor and Baily Endowed Chair of Animal Well-Being Science, College of Veterinary Medicine, Washington State University. His scientific contributions include more than 400 papers devoted to the study of basic emotional and motivational processes of the mammalian brain. He has conducted extensive research on brain and bodily mechanisms of feeding and energy-balance regulation, sleep physiology, and most importantly the study of emotional processes, including associated feelings states, in other animals. This talk was given November 9, 2013 in Seattle at TEDxRainier, a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Europe's refugee crisis explained
 
22:53
Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport BAKU - In the last couple of months, the media headlines have been dominated by the presence of refugees in major European cities. The rush of refugees to Europe has caused considerable diplomatic and domestic turmoil. Refugees from Syria, followed by African and Balkan nations, form the vast majority of the people seeking asylum. In most cases, the refugees pay large sums of money for a chance to reach Europe, and in many cases it’s a life risking gamble. The massive arrival of asylum seekers in Europe is not something new. Migration in and out of Europe has taken shape throughout history. However, the current human flow into Europe is different from historic migrations, and such unprecedented events carry with them economic and political repercussions that are shaking the European countries to their constitutional foundations. The most recognizable difference is the fact that the refugees are mostly from culturally distinct countries such as Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. In this report, we will look at the refugee crisis. How did it start, what is the European Union doing about it and why it’s not working.

Newton and Locke: Foundations of the Enlightenment (The Philosophes: Thinkers of the Enlightenment)
 
06:23
https://www.tomrichey.net/enlightenment.html In this first segment of my lecture on the philosophes (Enlightenment thinkers), I note the contributions of John Locke and Isaac Newton in laying the foundations for the Enlightenment. Although Locke and Newton lived before the Enlightenment, the philosophes relied heavily on their ideas. John Locke's social contract, which asserted that governments exist to protect individual liberty, was foundational for those who sought to advance freedom of thought in the eighteenth century. Isaac Newton's laws of physics, which outlined a rational universe governed by natural law, became popular with philosophes like Voltaire who wished to apply scientific principles to religion and society. Although Newton and Locke had come and gone by the time the Enlightenment hit Europe in full-swing, they gave the movement a starting point and a foundation that it would have otherwise lacked.

IOHK presents at Oxford University: Ouroboros: A Provably Secure Proof-of-Stake Blockchain Protocol
 
57:30
On the Ouroboros Design: How rigour and engineering are essential for critical infrastructure, read the latest IOHK blog now: https://iohk.io/blog/on-the-ouroboros-design-how-rigour-and-engineering-are-essential-for-critical-infrastructure/ https://iohk.io/research/papers/a-provably-secure-proof-of-stake-blockchain-protocol/ Mathematicians with a curiosity about the algorithms behind blockchain came to hear Aggelos Kiayias speak at Oxford university’s Mathematical Institute on Wednesday. Professor Kiayias, Chief Scientist at IOHK, had been invited to the university to give a talk on his work on Ouroboros, a provably secure Proof-of-Stake algorithm for blockchain. It the first time such a cryptographic protocol has been devised and is significant because its use would enable blockchains to process many more transactions, giving the technology the muscle that would scale it up for far wider use than at present. “Bitcoin is slow,” he said in the presentation, in an outline of the problem. “The transactions per second of Visa are in the order of many thousands, for Paypal in the order of hundreds, and Bitcoin is far less than that – clearly that’s something that can’t scale to a global level.” In addition to the much greater efficiency of Ouroboros, Prof Kiayias explained a novel reward mechanism for incentivising the protocol and used game theory to show why attacks such as selfish mining and block withholding would be neutralised. A Nash equilibrium is a prescription of a strategy for each rational player, with the property that if other players follow it, it does not make sense for a rational player to deviate from it. Prof Kiayias described how Ouroboros can be proven to be an approximate Nash equilibrium, thus distinguishing this blockchain system from Bitcoin, which is known to be not incentive compatible. The Ouroboros paper was first published last December with Alexander Russel, Bernardo David and Roman Oliynykov and Prof Kiayias presented the work at the Alan Turing Institute in London last year. Bernardo David on PoS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5sCsPerCiQ Bernardo David presenting PoS in detail at IOHK's Tokyo tech lab: https://youtu.be/hMgxZOsTlQc Among the audience was Hayyu Imanda, whose desire to specialise in cryptography for her PhD studies brought her to hear the presentation. The 22-year-old is currently in a class of 26 students at Oxford university studying for an MSc in Mathematics and Foundations of Computer Science. “I come from a pure maths background and I find cryptography very interesting, in that it was relatively recently founded and there is so much research happening,” she says. “I see it as a bridge from pure maths into real life, with many uses in terms of security, and it’s going to be a growing field.” More images from the event here: https://iohk.io/blog/a-proof-of-stake-lecture-at-oxford-university/ -- https://iohk.io/team/aggelos-kiayias/ Prof Aggelos Kiayias is the Chair in Cyber Security and Privacy at the University of Edinburgh. His research interests are in computer security, information security, applied cryptography and foundations of cryptography with a particular emphasis in blockchain technologies and distributed systems, e-voting and secure multiparty protocols as well as privacy and identity management. He joins IOHK as chief scientist through a long-term consulting agreement between IOHK and the University of Edinburgh, UK, where he is based and continues to do research and teach courses in cyber security and cryptography. Prof Kiayias is also Professor in Residence (gratis) at the University of Connecticut, USA, and Associate Professor of Cryptography and Security (on leave) at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. Prof Kiayias’s cyber security research over the years has been funded by the Horizon 2020 programme (EU), the European Research Council (EU), the General Secretariat for Research and Technology (Greece), the National Science Foundation (USA), the Department of Homeland Security (USA), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (USA). He has received an ERC Starting Grant, a Marie Curie fellowship, an NSF Career Award, and a Fulbright Fellowship. He holds a Ph.D. from the City University of New York and he is a graduate of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Athens. He has more than 100 publications in journals and conference proceedings in the area. He currently serves as the program chair of the Financial Cryptography and Data Security 2017 conference. -- Input Output See more at: https://iohk.io Get our latest news updates: https://iohk.io/blog/ Meet the team: https://iohk.io/team/ Learn about our projects: https://iohk.io/projects/cardano/ Read our papers: http://iohk.link/paper-ouroboros Visit our library: https://iohk.io/research/library/ In the press: https://iohk.io/press/ Work with us: https://iohk.io/careers/

6th HLF – Hot Topic: Blockchain and distributed ledgers - Panel Discussion "Technology"
 
50:24
Blockchain and distributed ledgers: Will the reality live up to the hype? Will distributed ledger provide a ‘reset’ button for the internet and other networks? Many of the primary privacy risks prevalent today are due to an increasing centralization of information. A decentralized network is potentially more secure but not without its vulnerabilities. During this session, a panel of experts will illuminate how distributed ledgers work, discuss their potential and explore how the world of finance and other application areas could be reshaped. Cryptocurrencies and their escalating, volatile values have successfully captivated the public. However, the rise to fame has not brought a thorough understanding of the underlying technology along with it and distributed ledgers remain largely misunderstood. A better comprehension of the technology is increasingly vital due to its potential ramifications in finance and regarding privacy. Distributed ledgers could conceivably reshape finance through cryptocurrencies and smart contracts, cure data protection issues with social media and re-decentralize the internet. In short, a chance to hit the ‘reset’ button. Simultaneously, the very aspects that make distributed ledgers so promising are the same that make it vulnerable. Though replicability, immutability and being append-only are enormous strengths, they are equally large burdens when used maliciously. The Hot Topic was coordinated and will be moderated by Eva Wolfangel, European Science Writer of the Year 2018, a science journalist with over 15 years of experience covering a range of scientific issues and technological developments and highlighting their significance for the public. In order to unravel the technology behind distributed ledgers and its potential implications, Wolfangel has enlisted the help of experts with backgrounds ranging from academia to industry. Through discussions and an open debate, the speakers aim to distinguish the implausible from the practical and distill how the distributed ledgers will further influence our lives. Experts: Donald Kossmann is the director of the Microsoft Research Lab in Redmond. The Redmond Lab does research in all core areas of computer science. In his research, he works on data management in the cloud. His goal is to make data in the cloud cheaper, more valuable, and more secure. Roman Matzutt and Martin Henze are working as researchers in the field of security and privacy of communication and distributed systems at RWTH Aachen University. Their recent research focuses on the technical foundations and optimizations of blockchains and distributed ledger technology as well as their implications for users. C. Mohan has been an IBM researcher for 36 years in the database and related areas. The IBM Fellow and former IBM India Chief Scientist is currently focused on Blockchain, Big Data and HTAP technologies. Silvio Micali is an ACM A.M. Turing Award laureate who has been on the MIT faculty since 1983, in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department, where he is Ford Professor of Engineering.  This video is also available on another stream: https://hitsmediaweb.h-its.org/Mediasite/Play/412dcc0ba7ea428a8ccff2f375b3fa961d?autoStart=false&popout=true The opinions expressed in this video do not necessarily reflect the views of the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation or any other person or associated institution involved in the making and distribution of the video.

Understanding the Russian mindset

Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport One of the very foundations of political science is the principle that geography determines destiny. In the same way that the British Isles determined the naval culture, and the frontier affected the American culture, Russia too, can be defined by its geographic characteristics. The most obvious element of Russia's geography is its enormous size. However, the truth is that Russia's size is both an advantage as well as a liability. The very core of the Russian Federation, the Moscow region, is simply indefensible. There are no mountainous ranges; no rivers or oceans, there are no swamps or deserts. Only the forests of Moscow and the inhospitable climate can be defined as geographic obstacles. The only thing the Russians can do in event of an invasion is to drag out the war and bleed the enemy out. It is for this reason that Russia's history is largely about surviving invasion after invasion. These centuries long experiences left a deep mark in the Russian culture and psychology, and due to these experiences the Russian leadership became obsessed with security and survival.

European Foundation Statute - Are all member states behind it?
 
01:38:47
On 31 May 2013 representatives from the sector, academia as well as national and EU level public authorities discussed the new European legal form for foundations, the European Statute for foundations proposed by the European Commission in February 2012. This is the first time that foundations have their own in the legislative pipeline. While there is still room for improvement on some of the details of the draft text, foundations are clearly welcoming the proposal and working on clarifying open questions. All Member States must adopt the draft Regulation and several Member States have raised concerns but where do we stand now? Is communication between national legislators and the foundation sector working well -- how could it be improved? Moderator: ​John Coughlan, Academy of European Law Foundation, Pannellists: Jorge Carrera Domenech, Permanent Representation of Spain to the European Union, Søren Friis Hansen, Copenhagen Business School, Victor Kjær, Danish Business Authority, Evelyn Regner, Member of the European Parliament Discussions were be held during the EFC Annual General Assembly in Copenhagen.
Marc Mezard: Artificial intelligence: success, limits, myths and threats
 
01:11:41
By now, everybody should know that Artificial Intelligence is about to produce a dramatic impact on many sectors of human activity. In the last ten years, thanks to the development of machine learning in "deep networks", we have experienced spectacular breakthroughs in diverse applications such as automatic interpretation of images, speech recognition, Go and chess playing. Most importantly, algorithms are now competing with the best professionals at analyzing skin cancer symptoms or detecting specific anomalies in radiology; and much more is to come. Worrisome perspectives are frequently raised, from massive job destruction to autonomous decision-making "warrior" robots. In this talk, we shall open the black box of deep networks and explore how they are programmed to learn from data by themselves. This will allow us to understand their limits, to question whether their achievements have anything to do with "intelligence", and to reflect on the foundations of scientific intelligence. Marc Mézard is a theoretical physicist. He received a PhD from Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, did a post-doc in Rome, and became the head of the statistical physics group in Paris-Sud University. He has been the director of École normale supérieure since 2012. His main field of research is the statistical physics of disordered systems and its use in various branches of science -- biology, economics and finance, information theory, computer science, statistics, and signal processing. In recent years his research has focused on information processing in neural networks. He has received the Lars Onsager prize from the American Physical Society, the Humboldt-Gay-Lussac prize, the silver medal of CNRS and the Ampere prize of the French Academy of Science. He is a member of the European Academy of Science. KITP Public Lecture, Jan 20, 2019

Sachs will argue for a new Moral Economics built firmly on the foundations of the new moral sciences. The goal of moral economics is to promote wellbeing. A core principle is the cultivation of individual and group virtue to help guide the behavior of both individuals and groups in the global society. Lecture 3. Cultivating the Virtues of Globalization Global society is at once deeply interconnected and deeply divided across political, religious, class, ethnic, and linguistic lines. These divides not only threaten prosperity but even human survival. The third lecture considers the virtues needed for globalization and the ways to cultivate them. The two other lectures that are part of this series are on Monday 13 and Tuesday 14 February. Jeffrey D Sachs (@JeffDSachs) is Professor of Economics at Columbia University, a leader in sustainable development, senior UN advisor, bestselling author and syndicated columnist. Nava Ashraf is Professor of Economics at the LSE and Director of Research of the Marshall Institute for Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship. The CEP (@CEP_LSE) is an interdisciplinary research centre at the LSE Research Laboratory. It was established by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) in 1990 and is now one of the leading economic research groups in Europe.
