We live in a fascinating world of Algorithms. I recently went to a tech-world conference in San Francisco and stayed in Westin at St. Franklin Street and happened to experience the new style Elevator known as destination-controlled elevators. These are the one’s where you had to press the floor where you’re going to go to before getting into the elevator and it uses Bin-packing algorithm to guide you to the correct car. Everybody who wants to go to 21st floor goes into car two and everybody who wants to go to 7th floor goes into car five and so on. No buttons in the elevator, and totally driven by Algorithm and just a red button that say STOP. Totally machine designed for humans. Scary or Fascinating ?
According to this study, Sounds and music helps improve your productivity at work and helps generate idea faster. But if you’re like me, I can’t listen to music while working. So what’s the solution ?
There is a solution with Ambient noise generators. I use Noisli to blockout unwanted noise and create a playlists with a mix of sounds (leaves, waves, thunder etc.,), its free and its available as chrome plugin and as iOS and Android app.
