Greetings from Germany

Translated Excerpts from the Site..

MEDICAL GLASSES

Short description of the idea

“Medical Glasses” is an app for the emergency medical service based on Google Glasses. The application is designed to make patient care safer and more efficient.

Description of Idea

With our ideas we want to support the emergency services personnel, especially in two ways: on the one hand we want to do at the right time and the right information available to give to others through complete documentation and a video connection to retrospectively demanded emergency medical team to the legal security. These carry the crews of ambulance and emergency vehicle use Google Glasses with our software “Medical Glasses”. “Medical Glasses” is to put in stressful situations the rescuer all the information available and so prevent problems, enhance the rescue chain and ultimately save lives. You are curious what “Medical Glasses” offers everything? Just look it out in our presentation, in which you can find all the features listed and explained again. Unsure what Google Glasses is again and can? No worry, here again a little refresher:  Google Glasses.

Strategy

Our next steps:

The first step is to write the software. Although we both have programming experience, however, is “Medical Glasses” too complex to allow us to realize the idea itself in a manageable time. Here we hope to gain allies who can help us technically. Failing this, would be another way of equity, potential investors, crowd funding and of course the prize money received may outsource the programming only once and later to bring programmers into the boat.

Is our idea in program format, the next step would be to gain an operational area as a partner for a practice test. From the practical test, we hope for a lot of attention, we would generate an innovation in the emergency service, the experience can we feed into the further development and evidence that proved our idea into practice.

The last step is the actual sale of “Medical Glasses”. Ideally, we have the practice test generates an enormous attention in the industry and the benefits of our proven product. Our business is to advise rescue service areas in the use of “Medical Glasses”, customize the software customization to local conditions and assist in the implementation.

The final step is licensing the software with monthly usage fees to us. The fees should be based on the size of the rescue service area. The target group is the local authorities, they have the obligation to maintain structures such as the ambulance service under the “municipal services”.Why the idea to me fits:

We are both volunteers in a large organization and passionate hobbyists. Julian is doing extra training to become a paramedic. Accordingly, it is exciting for us to combine our knowledge and experience from both areas in an idea.

What problem is solved?

The quality of information management during operations but varied greatly. The risk is high that sometimes go down on vital information in stress. Here we come in, Medical Glasses makes it possible for the ambulance already can view the collected findings of the ambulance crew during the approach, in case of doubt a video connection to make and thus have to intervene during the journey. The representation of vital signs in the field of view of Glasses with alarm function ensures that all keep track and nothing goes down. Databases with information about medicines and standardized algorithms for the treatment of specific diseases round out the comprehensive supply of information. Because knowledge is not power but a life-saving benefit for the patient in the case.

What are the advantages to other products / services of the submitted idea?

With our idea we are entering new territory, such an extensive assistance system, which the individual parts of the rescue chain linked does not yet exist. We see our advantages in the fact that we can scale our product desired and can respond to the relevant requirements of customers. Through the benefit of wearables like Google Glasses fall extensive sales or installations on the vehicles from the Savior has his hands free, has all the information in the visual field and the flow of information on a central server allows accurate control of the data. The customer to decide how best wishes to use in his operational area Medical Glasses, so we can always guarantee a perfect solution!

What have you done in the name of love?

IMG_5122

To you, where ever you are

To them, because they want to know

Do I believe in Love?

   Can I talk about it?

Yes, I do! I believe in love, that is the motor to my whole existence…Is love free? Is love eternal? How can I tell you why I feel so intense? Shall I talk about how I have been loved? Shall I tell you that twice I offered my life for my love ones? Like, real decisions about choosing between my life or others’ life. I still tremble, cry, surrender my mind to the thought of my love ones. What kind of love do you want to talk about? Is it just one kind, or many? I have heard so many definitions… recently one was absolutely astonished not because the words that were used to defined it, but for the person who said that…”Love, it just appears… you do not need to learn that feeling, is there, it appears without warning.” Is that true? It is the opposite as to have a fox as a friend and look at the sunset everyday for a period of time to learn to be friends, to learn to feel… the love of a friend? Or is it like the rose that you think is unique until you find thousands like your special rose… and surprisingly you start thinking that you love your rose because you take care of it like no other one?

How about impossible love or lovers… many stories about that theme, with lives at stake, with riches, families and societies to deal with… how about the love that start with a bet or a charade to evolve to a magnificent feeling? Can we think about the love of the opposites? Is it love if only one person feels that to another, or does it need to be corresponded?

How do you know that the feeling of a person is not because of insanity? Or you need to be insane to be profoundly in love?

I love to love when I am so happy that there is a special energy, special impetus that make me go forward in life. I love to be proud of my love and to show it with fulfillment. To be delirant of cheerfulness. Love is for me that exhilarant power to move me to the edge my capabilities. Yet, the moments of quietness, the intense rest with the confidence that my love ones are there. Sintonizing like in a symphony when everybody has a part to play. Oh yes! I been loved, I love, I feel loved. It is not that the gravity of certain situations are going to define to un-love a person, because I know that what they are doing is the best they can do even if it goes against something or the all. The perfection of people is when  the wonderful perceptions about their imperfections are there, and you can recognize and love the essence of their virtues.

 

Intuition

Intuition

Dedicated to Gabriela

There had been several questions nowadays about intuition, so, I went to Wikipedia and I found interesting ideas. Lets start with the original definition:

Intuition, the modern usage of which has been formally derived from the work and writings of Immanuel Kant, is the ability to acquire knowledge without inference or the use of reason.[1] The word intuition comes from Latin verb intueri which is usually translated as to look inside or to contemplate.[2] Intuition is thus often conceived as a kind of inner perception, sometimes regarded as real lucidity or understanding. Cases of intuition are of a great diversity, however processes by which they happen typically remain mostly unknown to the thinker, as opposed to our view of rational thinking.

Now let’s go to the recent definition:

In more-recent psychology, intuition can encompass the ability to know valid solutions to problems and decision making. For example, the recognition primed decision (RPD) model explains how people can make relatively fast decisions without having to compare options. Gary Klein found that under time pressure, high stakes, and changing parameters, experts used their base of experience to identify similar situations and intuitively choose feasible solutions. Thus, the RPD model is a blend of intuition and analysis. The intuition is the pattern-matching process that quickly suggests feasible courses of action. The analysis is the mental simulation, a conscious and deliberate review of the courses of action.

Let’s go with an spiritual definition:

Intuition is commonly discussed in writings of spiritual thought. Contextually, there is often an idea of a transcendent and more qualitative mind of one’s spirit towards which a person strives, or towards which consciousness evolves. Typically, intuition is regarded as a conscious commonality between earthly knowledge and the higher spiritual knowledge[16] and appears as flashes of illumination.[17] It is asserted that by definition intuition cannot be judged by logical reasoning

If we look how the brain works according to How to Create a Mind by Ray Kurzweil :

…”By concidering the likelihood of different interpretations of a phrase…”

….”Neuro anatomist have not found a hopelessly tangled arbitrarily connected network, completely idiosyncratic to the brain of each individual, but instead agreat deal of repeating structure within an individual brain and a great deal of homology across species…”  Dharmendra Modha

…”Each neuron and each neuronal component is following an algorithm ( after all, these are molecular mechanisms that follow natural law)…” The refinement of a canonical circuit =  The Brain Reverse Engineering Project  have clearly identified hierarchies of units of functionality in natural systems…. especially the brain, and AI systems are using comparable methods… We are creating these tools to make ourselves smarter…. I believe that most observers will agree with me that this is what is unique about the human species. We build these tools to extend our own reach…”

Where do you think intuition is?

Since we are born we started collecting data, we experiment as babies even how come that a spoon cannot be sustained in a bowl if the bowl is inverted and not in any surface? I have seen does experiments in babies… This only means that gravity law is acquired by experimentation. The first noises to call for attention from Mommy are learned too… we can keep going and thinking that intuition is just the Data accumulated over time to try to forecast a situation…  How about if we have not only what is in our brain but also in a software that helps us  for example to check if we are certain our team is going to perform well in a given Season… There are movies, books, news dedicated to understand, bet, forecast everything about nothing else than sports. If we have the tools to applied a formula to understand not only the likelihood of an event but  all events, any event and be so precise that we can be accurate and precise… I think that is more than the formula for the eternal youth or the formula for things transformed into gold, which by the way they are known now, but not ready to be practically usable. Then, do you think that we have the crystal bowl to see the future? Insurance companies,  casinos, stock market, guarantees for any article, elections and many other institutions and activities are already under the umbrella of  an educated intuition or you can call it Statistics, Simulations, Mathematical Technics etc. People more than ever are exploring data, analyzing data to make decisions.  Imagine that every single person can make a question in their mobiles about a forecast for the simplest events of a daily life and be ready to act accordingly to the best outcome. For the goodness of Mankind… Why are you studying Statistics? Well that is a reason. That is why I am studying Exploratory Data Analysis. One day not to far from now, everybody will be able to have this magic crystal bowl. Here is the link for the course  https://www.udacity.com/course/ud651

A Happy Experience, with Tremendous Empowerment for Their Students and Completely Adorable by All?

 Universities, centers of knowledge have been created many years ago. They have for missions to spread, among other virtues, wisdom and true in their communities. There have been many philanthropists that are or were sharing their wealth to create these fascinating places. All of them have rules, timelines, and costs. Some of them are created by national systems and there is no tuition involved, or is just symbolic.

  The poor, the isolated, and the minorities have to struggle with all the deficiencies that their trades have, before they can join without stress the full experience of higher education. Some people can deal with a big amount of stress, others don’t and that has nothing to do with their wealth, gregarious personality, or if they are part of the general population, or normal people (statistically speaking). Nevertheless it helps to have enough money to have acquired a good basic education to pursue a higher one. To be connected to find out the easiest path with the best results, and to be part of the group to work together and enjoy the synergy of learning as part of a team.

   How to know if the course, courses you are taking are going to enrich in an effective way your career? Wow! For that, I have heard so many opinions; you almost can have a book of them. Just some of them are; it doesn’t matter what courses you take as long as you know, you have connections, you must be part of the people with influences so, go to institutions where the children of the top society are. Another opinion is; go where you know the institution has more successful and prestigious alumni and/or professors. Go where you can have personalized guidance and mentoring. Go where you can have the most diverse community, go where you are the opposite of your family values, go where you can afford it, go where moral and religion is first; go as far (or as close) as your parents are. Go where they value the people’s voice. Go where you have the most parties, best installations, best dorms etc, etc, etc… When you are there;

    as a student sometimes you get into the stressful facts of a) a great deal is expected of you and b) you have no control over whether you will perform well; according to Martin Seligman. And well, that is not nice.

  Oh no! What are all those aspects, why is not simply, what are the institutions of knowledge doing?

   Besides the campuses, and personal, they have a master plan for each career. They got into that plan with some key elements; the industry, the government, the professors, and students. They plan for the future, they analyze trends, market, necessities and the most probably scenario that can occur when people graduate.

   As you can see, it is a combination of facts that can be target with accuracy, if you know your data, and you have a good stochastic method to apply; the outcome will have a reasonable, hopeful outcome. We can use the term believe in many statements explaining why an institution decides something over many options. The truth is that there is the technology and mathematical methods to be more precise than ever if we can simulate with enough and correct numbers. The future can be known with a narrow clearance; to a scale so narrow that we can almost said that we are certain of a successful career. And that is why I totally know that the technology used in Udacity to choose the classes, the professors, the amount of time expending, and the grading system is the best. Just take the class of Artificial Intelligence with Sebastian Thrun.

    As a new way of learning, or new system, data is needed. It is not sprouted randomly, they have to collect enough information to create a model, which by this time, it is very optimistic to say but perfectly reasonable to think they do.

    So, Udacity is a center of knowledge, they have rules, timelines and costs. They have philanthropists, a mission, and a virtual campus that is composed by the forums, coffee breaks, hang outs, contests, and other beautiful and useful things, to interact with their community.

     Udacity have the collaboration of not only one university but several, and the industry has a vital presence. They have a verify certification which is a key factor to acknowledge the rigor and recognition of a learned skill.

    When you are a student, you are the product of an educational institution, one of the most stressful things for a mentor, teacher, professor, or educator is the idea that…” The ability of a student to do well in a class has something to do with their class”… a quote from the book Brain Rules by John Medina.

    To solve this anguish statement people go to the statistics and if they have, like at Udacity, a pass rate of 83% surpassing many of other classes in other campuses; it is when we can dance in the rain because we know, they conquered a storm. That is a huge achievement! As a student your concerns of performance are gone, and yes, a great deal was expected from you; you have sweated it and earned it; in a controlled, wonderful, and nice environment; with an assertive amount of stress. Because think of it, you know you did it, and you feel it in your brain, nothing can change that inner satisfaction, that helps to go on and on.

    So, who are the clients in a center of knowledge? Students, their families, communities, countries, and the world are. The students have the duality of being the product and the client, this paradox come from the bare nature of knowledge which is part of the unique trait of being humans and have fun learning and developing our cortex during our existence.

   Many of these thoughts have been evolving in me for many years, due to my experience as a professor of Industrial Engineering, and as an Educator and Tutor; I think this is the time to put them down as a response to a call by Sebastian Thrun for a public discussion about Udacity offerings, and the future of higher education. For the enrolling of many, we can see it as a happy experience, with tremendous empowerment for their students and completely adorable by all Udacian’s Communities.

Oh! No! Where is the knowledge!!! It is still there!! San Jose State University- Udacity

 (Not long time ago this was the case, now is totally different, it is good to have some background of different situations, so for the sake of continuity I am posting this, but you know it was in my blogger from the beginning, this is just an old  follow up… for the next post)

Oh!!! No!!! What is going on!!! Failure!!! Poor rates!!! Look at the performance!!!

Some Media and their ways of putting things….

Remediation classes… Ha! It is exactly the word that put in a very questionable position the origin of an Olympian, wonderful, and amazing set of tools that Udacity is… It is also an experiment, and the population is a very special one. For one year+ Udacity has delivered in a very concise format a huge amount of knowledge. Udacity is a place to enjoy and learn; if remediation was the challenge then you do not put unreachable constrains if you want good comments from the Press; if your objective is to experiment then go ahead and learn from your experience, and that is a success.

In Udacity or while learning in any arena you need to have time to experiment, explore, try, challenge, dare, improve your abilities; which ones… well let’s see an example; when mankind were learning to play with electronic games some 20+ years ago, first we needed to learn to press the right buttons for any special movement, then it came the combinations; after, you are able to do the series of nested combinations. Nowadays, you can easily point out who has been playing for a long time just because it came natural to them all the micro movements they need to do in the fastest precise way to win over the opponent.

The population for remediation has very different problems to deal with but, the worst pervasive one is the LACK OF TIME as I just read and concurred in Sebastian Thrun post explanation. Next to that one is the pressure to repeat a concept in certain time and with that believe that you are going to assure success. The brain doesn’t work like that… it is boring and then the attention to detail is lost in an abysm of boredom. Every single person who needs remediation needs to be diagnosed exactly with the special need or with the located misunderstood concept and start from that or those, people can have many. It needs to have a systematic approach of assistance. That means to diagnose from the beginning what are you dealing with. Or at least have a history of what has been happening.

What I have learned, study and seen in the amazing wonderful universe of learning is that it needs to be INTERESTING. Not long time ago a person told me to repeat courses that I have already taken. Wow! I was furious, and I refused for a long time, then I meditated. If I have already passed them then I can look at them again in another perspective, since I do not have any pressure but my own. I am taking my time and refuel my patience to hear the same things by the same people in the same manner. Well I do not reread books, I don’t see movies twice in a regular basis, it needs to be very, very good to make me do it. It is not the same if you read a book and then you see the movie, or the play of it. Theater is magic because no performance is the same because people behave differently every time, so it is not boring. With this I want you to notice that emotions are there you can not avoid them. Once you fail something you have a sour thought about it, that is stress…

You can learn the same thing in different platforms, or formats; learn with unlimited examples, experiences, games, contexts; the rule is always pursuing to be interesting! I did not invented it, there are many studies that talk about that I just concurred from my experience.

Our knowledge behaves like an onion, it has many layers; they started to form the same day you become alive. According to your experiences is the type of knowledge you have. That is one thing.

Knowledge behaves like energy does; one person can have it or a group of persons without changing the force. The wonderful thing is that a difference of energy, it can be storage. It is not like power, or money; it is really a shareable thing. Everybody gets enriched. You have seen how a student can explain to another student the concept in a particular proper vocabulary and Eureka everything became clear.

When people are stressed, they learn like a Swiss cheese, with holes. Or like with wrinkles in their layers or with jumps between them. So, in order to have perfect onions or layers of knowledge you need to peel the onion and check where the fault is. It can be done with a one on one assistant, or with software. The quality of the remediation outcome lies in the efficiency of the model use to locate the hole and how to fix it. Who does the software?  It is People. Who does the tutoring? It is People. In every single origin of knowledge the primal source is People. Who is going to hire you? Who is making jobs? Who is designing courses? Who is putting the standards or conditions to say you know something? Always, the answer is People.

So, why it is this whole debacle idea and the debate about it that the Press is taking out of proportions? Udacity is a proven source of top-notch knowledge. The good thing is that a critical mass of people understands that online education is for the good of Humanity. So, for majority and for leadership we can keep forging in the right direction for a better future. There are many links on the web talking about this with big names and/or wallets that are helping.  I just read the Scientific American article of this month about Learning in the digital age. Sebastian Thrun also explained it in the Udacity Global Meetup Day, you can see it in YouTube.  I think it is an unstoppable phenomenon. People need to be reassured that everything is going to be absolutely better. And by the way, once you take your course online if you are on the remediation club, you can go back and look in a calm manner what you missed. If nobody helps you, look inside yourself maybe you will find the best answer. A good idea if you find a way to succeed is just to give feedback. Use Udacity or some other distinct MOOC’s as what they are a wonderful source of knowledge.

How can I tell you?

      We have not seen each other for years,
we spent eight days together, we laughed, we cooked, we shopped, we have fun together.
Oh what a wonderful time!
You shared with me your most precious treasures, your most daring thoughts. You still have that  seasoning that makes every dish a delicacy, so simple, yet so elegant.
We still find the same humor in the most childish things. We can count on the same astonishment when we see the wonders of Nature. We worry for the same sad incomprehensible destructive events that surround Earth.
Yes, we can walk together over the mountains, an over the sky.
Now you are far away,  yet I can see you,  we are sharing our distant life, with our closest thoughts.
Now I follow your recipes, I keep my hair with your ointments.
I am amazed with your fortitude. I see your life growing and your successes accomplished.
Your legacy getting grounded and your seeds growing and germinating in powerful statements of life.
Waiting for the opportunity to see you again to spare the time from our crazy schedules, to concur in the same latitude and longitude, to feel the song in my heart that started when I met you, long, long, long time ago.
Looking for another time to share with you that special feeling that only you can share with me. Love,
Perla
