Computers are providing solutions to math problems that we can’t check

Good news! A computer has solved the longstanding Erdős discrepancy problem! Trouble is, we have no idea what it’s talking about — because the solution, which is as long as all of Wikipedia’s pages combined, is far too voluminous for us puny humans to confirm.

A few years ago, the mathematician Steven Strogatz predicted that it wouldn’t be too much longer before computer-assisted solutions to math problems will be beyond human comprehension. Well, we’re pretty much there. In this case, it’s an answer produced by a computer that was hammering away at the Erdős discrepancy problem.

A new kind of obesity is now looming with our information, data, and media diet. We have only scratched the surface, but there is already way too much of information available, and it is way too tasty, too cheap, and too rich. Not a single day goes by without yet another service offering us more updates from our increasing number of friends, more ways to be disrupted by incessant notifications on pretty much any platform (witness the growing popularity of smart-watches), more news, more music, more movies, more, better and cheaper mobile devices, and a seemingly total social connectivity. Many of us are likely to pig out like we’re at an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Instead of planning for some abstract urban whole, planners are going to have to work for all the concrete parts of the city, the different classes, ethnic groups, and races it contains. And the work they do for these people cannot be laying out their future, the people will have no chance to mature unless they do that for themselves, unless they are actually involved in shaping their social lives.

Colin Ward - Anarchy in Action

Ward here takes an anarchist perspective in analysing the role of planning and urban design. Arguing that it should be up to people as a collective to help shape their own social environment.

A creative idea is only worth as much as one can recognize it

St. Louis could soon be transformed by a national park spanning one of the city’s highways. Impressive stuff.

"You can change everything about your house except the location," the old adage goes. The owners of Modern on Meadow loved everything about their Leawood neighborhood. It was the house that needed changing. The couple desired spaces that were open, modern and bright, and their 1950s single-story ranch home afforded them none of these things.

We set out to renovate it to fit their lifestyle. When it became clear early on that the program they needed wouldn’t fit inside the existing footprint, the renovation became an addition.
