Early life[edit] Criterios de Copenhague. M. C. Escher. Maurits Cornelis Escher (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈmʌurɪt͡s kɔrˈneːlɪs ˈɛʃər]; 17 June 1898 – 27 March 1972) was a Dutch graphic artist who made mathematically-inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints.

M. C. Escher

Despite wide popular interest, Escher was for long somewhat neglected in the art world; even in his native Netherlands; he was 70 before a retrospective exhibition was held. In the twenty-first century, he became more widely appreciated, with exhibitions across the world. Early in his career, he drew inspiration from nature, making studies of insects, landscapes, and plants such as lichens, all of which he used as details in his artworks. He traveled in Italy and Spain, sketching buildings, townscapes, architecture and the tilings of the Alhambra and the Mezquita of Cordoba, and became steadily more interested in their mathematical structure.

Early life Study journeys. Pedro Friedeberg - Wikipedia. Pedro Friedeberg (January 11, 1936-) is a Mexican artist and designer known for his surrealist work filled with lines colors and ancient and religious symbols.

His best known piece is the “Hand-Chair” a sculpture/chair designed for people to sit on the palm, using the fingers as back and arm rests. Friedeberg began studying as an architect but did not complete his studies as he began to draw designs against the conventional forms of the 1950s and even completely implausible ones such as houses with artichoke roofs. However, his work caught the attention of artist Mathias Goeritz who encouraged him to continue as an artist. Friedeberg became part of a group of surrealist artists in Mexico which included Leonora Carrington and Alice Rahon, who were irreverent, rejecting the social and political art which was dominant at the time.

Friedeberg has had a lifelong reputation for being eccentric, and states that art is dead because nothing new is being produced. Big Data. A few books.

Urban Sound Classification, Part 1. We all got exposed to different sounds every day. Like, the sound of car horns, siren and music etc. How about teaching computer to classify such sounds automatically into categories! In this blog post, we will learn techniques to classify urban sounds into categories using machine learning. Earlier blog posts covered classification problems where data can be easily expressed in vector form. Local regression - Wikipedia. LOESS curve fitted to a population sampled from a sine wave with uniform noise added. The LOESS curve approximates the original sine wave LOESS (/ˈloʊɛs/) and LOWESS (locally weighted scatterplot smoothing) are two strongly related non-parametric regression methods that combine multiple regression models in a k-nearest-neighbor-based meta-model.

"LOESS" is a later generalization of LOWESS; although it is not a true acronym, it may be understood as standing for "LOcal regrESSion".[1] LOESS and LOWESS thus build on "classical" methods, such as linear and nonlinear least squares regression. They address situations in which the classical procedures do not perform well or cannot be effectively applied without undue labor. Complex online web statistical calculators. The Fundamental Statistics Theorem Revisited. In this article, we revisit the most fundamental statistics theorem, talking in layman terms. We investigate a special but interesting and useful case, which is not discussed in textbooks, data camps, or data science classes.

This article is part of a series about off-the-beaten-path data science and mathematics, offering a fresh, original and simple perspective on a number of topics. Tukey's Post Hoc Test Example.
