Revue de presse : Intelligence artificielle
La robotique et l’intelligence artificielle ont connu de brillantes avancées dans les quarante dernières années, ce qui révolutionna plusieurs domaines, dont la production industrielle. Les robots pouvant travailler plus rapidement et plus efficacement que les humains tout en étant infatigables. Toutefois, la soif d’avancées scientifiques ne s’arrête pas là, bien au contraire, car des leaders mondiaux de la technologie tels que Google, Microsoft, Tesla, Apple et Facebook investissent désormais des quantités énormes de temps et d’argent dans le développement de l’intelligence artificielle. Plusieurs scientifiques croient que les trente prochaines années vont être hôtes de grandes avancées qui pourraient révolutionner le marché du travail dans les pays industrialisés. En effet, avec l’ajout d’une capacité à réfléchir et à apprendre, combinée avec leur capacité de stockage de données énorme et leur absence de faiblesses physiques, les robots pourraient remplacer presque tous les humains dans des domaines comme la production, le service d’aide, l’éducation, le service à la clientèle, la construction, etc. Certains scientifiques prédisent qu’une telle utilisation de la robotique dans la société pourrait entraîner un taux de chômage de plus de 50%. Néanmoins, aussi loin que puisse se projeter les prédictions sur le degré d’intelligence des robots, une chose reste absente, la présence de sentiments et d’émotions chez l’intelligence artificielle. Ainsi, celle-ci pourrait remplacer les humains dans diverses tâches, mais cette absence aurait-elle un grand impact ? Avoir un robot sans émotions pour enseigner à…...

...Tommy Tunnell Foreign Languages in School Texas school districts require students to have at least 2 years of foreign languages in order to earn a diploma. With modern translation technology and the fact that English is spoken almost everywhere on Earth, this is outdated, unnecessary, and the time spent on learning a language could be spent on more important topics such as math and science. In sci-fi movies and television shows, we often see characters speaking into a small device in their hand and having it translate what they say into an alien language. The United States Military has had a translator like this for some time, and now with voice recognition technology and the existence of Google Translate, it is now available for everyone. The Google Translate app on smart phones allows one to speak a phrase or sentence into the phone and translate it into over 65 languages in a matter of seconds. When you can speak a phrase and translate it into another language so conveniently, learning another language seems like a waste of time. English is spoken everywhere there is language. It is easily the most widely spoken language on Earth with many street signs and billboards and posters all over Europe being written in English alongside or under their native language. Many international business owners also make an effort to learn English in order to associate with other businesses. It is the language of Earth. If we grow up speaking it, it’s really just an advantage. With...

...The Impacts of the French Revolution Latisha Wilson His 104 Professor Irene Geisler 6/17/13 The French Revolution was motivated by many origins. Many French people were displeased by the political, social and economic disorders, especially those of the third estate. The philosophers of the enlightenment changed publics’ points of view of government and society. Their goals were to expose and destroy the inequalities of the old order. The enlightenment ideals emphasized the idea of natural rights and equality. The enlightenment which was a period of where new ideas were spread throughout France often criticizing absolute government and the injustices of society. Enlightened thinkers believed that through reason humanity could advance into a new and better world. The Philosophers of the enlightenment were a vast political cause. They spread the idea that everyone should be equal. They tried to apply reason and the scientific method to laws that shaped human activities. John Locke believed that people have three natural rights. Life, liberty and property. The most impressive of the philosophers was the writer Voltaire. He fought for tolerance, reason, freedom of religious beliefs, and freedom of speech. Montesquieu wrote about separation of powers, dividing power among to separate branches of government. Jean Jacques Rousseau wrote in favor of human freedom. The enlightenment movement opened up citizen’s minds about positive change, respect for a person’s place...

French Revolution

...French Revolution Essay. The French Revolution came about through many causes that included financial problems and food scarcity. France was in financial crisis due to their participation in the seven years war and American Revolution. By 1789, France encountered bankruptcy because of the country’s indiscriminate inequitable system of taxation. France at the time was a nation where society was dominated by class. The clergy and nobility were exempted from taxation leaving peasants who were barely scraping by to also suffer heavy taxation. This led to the system government not being able to levy enough tax to deficit. The second cause of this event; food scarcity was also a huge problem. Crop failure, famine and harsh winters led to high prices of bread, which was the main food source for peasants. The poor conditions in the rural had forced rural residents to move into Paris, and the city was overcrowded and filled with the hungry and disaffected. Therefore peasants suffered incredibly from economic and agricultural problems. The fact that the peasants were angered by the increased tax and agricultural problems had caused an even greater problem towards the financial crisis. Furthermore, French Revolution had not only caused catastrophe to the country, but had also affected the people involved in this event, especially the peasants in France. The French Revolution began because people of the Third Estate (poorest French citizens) wanted more share in government and fairer......

French Stereotype

...French Stereotypes Stereotyping is basically a part of human nature. When an individual interacts with other people he has the tendency to make generalizations out of their characteristics and to consider these characteristics as applicable to all people of the same class. Stereotyping is defined as the process where an individual create in his mind an image of another person (Macrae, Stangor & Hewstone 3). It is also defined as “a fixed, commonly held notion or image of a person or group, based on an oversimplification of some observed or imagined trait of behavior or appearance” (Media Awareness Network). Even though we are unique and distinct from each other, it is part of human nature to make generalizations of people belonging to a specific race and nationality. These generalizations are being reinforced in movies, televisions, novels and other forms of mass media. This essay seeks to highlight the different French stereotypes being portrayed in mass media and to establish that these stereotypes are not necessarily accurate representations of the French people. Stereotyping has a positive and negative effect not only to the person being referred to but also to the community in general. When an individual creates a mental image of somebody and put that in his mind, he also acts in accordance with this stereotype. The stereotyped images serve as a person’s paradigm through which he sees the world. As a result, he behaves and acts in accordance with this......

...overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system. In history major changes take place often. One example of a major change was the French Revolution. The French Revolution occurred in France during the late 1700’s. The French people wanted to replace their Absolute government with a democracy. The ideas of the Enlightenment encouraged members of the 3rd Estate to revolt against Louis XVI. Revolution is change. The French Revolution is an example of change. There were many causes that led to the Revolution. One cause was the 3rd Estate wanted freedom. The 3rd Estate had a meeting to declare their equality within the French government. They produced a document known as the Declaration of the Rights of Man. Another cause of the Revolution was the need to lower the tax burden on the 3rd Estate. The 3rd Estate paid most of the taxes in France. A third cause of the Revolution was people wanted to have a democracy. In order to achieve this democracy the French people felt they had to execute Louis XVI by guillotine. There were many effects from the French Revolution. One immediate effect was instead of getting a democracy Napoleon took control of France. Napoleon was a dictator. However, over time France becomes a democracy. Today France is a democracy. One of the most important long term effects of the French Revolution was the inception of the Napoleonic Code, which influenced revolutions in other countries. It instilled the spirit of hope and freedom......

...The post has just arrived and in it a very nice surprise, the discovery that Jacques Seguela, one-time adviser to President Mitterrand, now close confidant of President and Madame Sarkozy (indeed he intoduced them), and something of a legend in French political communications, has dedicated his latest book to little old moi. With apologies for the missing accents here and in the French bits of the long posting which follows – the dedication to ‘Le Pouvoir dans la Peau‘ (Power in the skin) reads ‘A Alastair Campbell, mon spin doctor prefere’ (three missing accents in one word – mes excuses sinceres). So what did I do for this honour, you are asking? Well, perhaps the fact that he asked me to read his book, and write a ‘postface’ assessment both of his writing and of the issues he covers, and the fact that I said yes, has something to do with it. He says some blushmakingly kind things in his ‘preface to the postface’, which I will have to leave to French readers of the whole thing (published by Plon). But for the largely Anglophone visitors of this blog, I thought some of you might like to read the said ‘postface’ in English (apart from the bits where I quote direct from his book). I hope all those students who write asking for help with dissertations will find something quotable in it. Meanwhile I am off to Norway for a conference and a meeting with the Norwegian Labour Party. I’m looking forward to being in the country with the highest ‘human development index’ in......

...BONJOUR TRISTESSE – Une Version Le roman ‘Bonjour Tristesse’, écrit par Françoise Sagan quand elle était elle-même adolescente, a lieu pendant les années cinquante. L’action de l’histoire se déroule dans le sud de la France à la côte méditerrannéenne, en été, quand il fait vraiment chaud tous les jours. En fait la chaleur joue un rôle important dans l’histoire, d’une part érotique quand les personnages s’abandonnent aux plaisirs de l’amour, et d’autre part pour peut-être expliquer la lassitude qui sert d’excuse pour des pensées déraisonnables et des actions égoïstes. En général il s’agit de cinq personnages. Cécile, la narratrice, a dix-sept ans. Elle est fille unique de son père, qui s’appelle Raymond et qui est veuf. Cécile a passé sa jeunesse dans un couvent et à l’âge de quinze ans elle est allée à Paris avec son père afin de goûter la vie, puisque Raymond aime vivre, a plusieurs maîtresses et, en fin de compte, est libertin et homme de femmes. On va passer des grandes vacances près de Cannes dans une villa, que son père avait louée pour quelques mois, avec une de ses maîtresses, qui s’appelle Elsa. Mais cette situation idéale et insouciante est bouleversée quand une ancienne amie de son père, qui s’appelle Anne, arrive. Anne est une femme de classe, une dame plus âgée, respectable et intelligente. Sa confiance et froideur déconcertante attire la jeune Cécile qui, comme adolescent typique, est toujours à la recherche d’un sens d’identité et de comprendre......

...reader’s reading of the text suggest about himself/herself? [Roundabout: what does it say about the reader if s/he recognizes the cleverness of the Groom or if s/he understands the King’s self-preservation?] Conclusion A discussion of ethics is inherently inconclusive when one factors in considerations of individualism and the complexity of humankind. It is widely accepted that the human mind works in the same ways for each person, and aside from the conscience, the mechanics of the brain are identical across different people. Stories from Boccaccio’s Decameron challenge us to include this discussion of individualism in our analyses, in offering ethical dilemmas that can be argued from all directions. For example, the story discussed in this essay, the second story of the third day, provides a clear, overarching moral direction, one that includes a rapist, a husband suffering from an offense committed on his wife, and a woman who has been deceived and raped. At the same time, there are other perspectives from which the story can be viewed. For instance, the deceptive groom can be considered a hero in accomplishing such a challenging feat of expressing his passion for his love, the Queen. At the same time, the King is respectable in being able to maintain his honor. In this fashion, Decameron calls on us to question our beliefs about what is ethically acceptable and what is unacceptable, even forcing us to admit that sometimes the lines of ethics aren’t clear enough to make......
