A decisional balance sheet or decision balance sheet is a tabular method for representing the pros and cons of different choices and for helping someone decide what to do in a certain circumstance. It is often used in working with ambivalence in people who are engaged in behaviors that are harmful to their health (for example, problematic substance use or excessive eating), as part of psychological approaches such as those based on the transtheoretical model of change, and in certain circumstances in motivational interviewing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decisional_balance_sheet decision-making thinking tool (more)
Google Workspace turns to "smart chips" to weave Docs, Tasks, and Meet together. Google is launching a slate of new features for its Workspace productivity suite today, starting with new “smart chips” that connect Google Docs to other products. Just like you can tag people with an @ symbol, starting today, you can use it to specialize links inside docs that hook up other files or meetings. They’re part of what Google is calling the “smart canvas,” a new initiative that promises to increase the cadence of product improvements for Workspace. (more)
BetaWorks is hosting an event today in NYC: From the documenting software on the earliest PCs to modern tools like Roam Research, software's paramount value has been in providing people leverage in not just their productivity, but also their thinking. For this edition of Render, we'll be exploring new advancements in the space with some of its brightest entrepreneurs and contributors. Across two days of programming, we'll be taking tours of new projects, learning about knowledge graphs as public resources, discussing recent advancements in AI and ML in understanding semantic meaning of ideas, and of course sharing with one another how we use these tools ourselves. Join us as we explore the past, present, and future of tools for thinking. (Tools for Thought) I'll attend virtually. (more)
Prolog is a logic programming language associated with artificial intelligence and computational linguistics. Prolog has its roots in first-order logic, a formal logic, and unlike many other programming languages, Prolog is intended primarily as a declarative programming language: the program logic is expressed in terms of relations, represented as facts and rules. A computation is initiated by running a query over these relations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prolog
RDFa or Resource Description Framework in Attributes is a W3C Recommendation that adds a set of attribute-level extensions to HTML, XHTML and various XML-based document types for embedding rich metadata within Web documents. The Resource Description Framework (RDF) data-model mapping enables its use for embedding RDF subject-predicate-object expressions within XHTML documents. It also enables the extraction of RDF model triples by compliant user agents. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RDFa (more)
