Professional Learning. Neural Network Tutorial. Introduction I have been interested in artificial intelligence and artificial life for years and I read most of the popular books printed on the subject.

Neural Network Tutorial

I developed a grasp of most of the topics yet neural networks always seemed to elude me. Neural Networks for Machine Learning. About the Course Neural networks use learning algorithms that are inspired by our understanding of how the brain learns, but they are evaluated by how well they work for practical applications such as speech recognition, object recognition, image retrieval and the ability to recommend products that a user will like.

Neural Networks for Machine Learning

As computers become more powerful, Neural Networks are gradually taking over from simpler Machine Learning methods. They are already at the heart of a new generation of speech recognition devices and they are beginning to outperform earlier systems for recognizing objects in images. The course will explain the new learning procedures that are responsible for these advances, including effective new proceduresr for learning multiple layers of non-linear features, and give you the skills and understanding required to apply these procedures in many other domains.

Part 1 - Phantoms In The Brain (Episode 1) Why passwords have never been weaker—and crackers have never been stronger. In late 2010, Sean Brooks received three e-mails over a span of 30 hours warning that his accounts on LinkedIn, Battle.net, and other popular websites were at risk.

Why passwords have never been weaker—and crackers have never been stronger

He was tempted to dismiss them as hoaxes—until he noticed they included specifics that weren't typical of mass-produced phishing scams. The e-mails said that his login credentials for various Gawker websites had been exposed by hackers who rooted the sites' servers, then bragged about it online; if Brooks used the same e-mail and password for other accounts, they would be compromised too. The warnings Brooks and millions of other people received that December weren't fabrications. Voting Methods.

Voting Methods

This may have been when you voted for your favorite political candidate during the last election. On a smaller scale, it may have been when you took part in a committee that needed to choose the best candidate for a job or a student to receive a special award.

Index of /content/downloads/pdf. The Rubik's Cube Solution. How to Solve the Rubik's Cube in Seven Steps The world's most famous puzzle, simultaneously beloved and despised for it's beautiful simple complexity, the Rubiks Cube has been frustrating gamers since Erno Rubik invented it back in 1974.

The Rubik's Cube Solution

Over the years many brave gamers have whole-heartedly taken up the challenge to restore a mixed Rubik's cube to it's colorful and perfect original configuration, only to find the solution lingering just out of their grasp time and time again. After spending hours and days twisting and turning the vaunted cube in vain, many resorted to removing and replacing the multi-colored facelets of the cube in a dastardly attempt to cheat the seemingly infallible logic of the cube, while others simply tossed it to the side and dubbed it impossible. The Rubik's cube, it seemed, had defeated all. Species Counterpoint. An Introduction to Species Counterpoint COUNTERPOINT may be briefly defined as the art of combining independent melodies.

Species Counterpoint

In figure 1 the lower melody is harmonized by one a third higher - such an arrangement of the voices could be regarded as counterpoint, but there is little or no independence between the parts; for example there is no dissonance between the voices, and both rise and fall together in parallel. However, the arrangement in figure 1a demonstrates much greater independence between its two voices, with movement in one part while the other halts, divergence in the melodic direction of the parts, and with at least some occurrence of dissonance.

In a longer melody the voices could peak at different times - this would also emphasize their independence. The Virial Theorem. Bestiario. Free Engineering Books. Here is an alphabetical list of online engineering books available for free download.

Store your data on someone else's computer, hope they don't do anything bad with it or decide to shut down. Stallman calls it "Careless Computing". If you put personal data in-the-cloud like future plans., trips, your current GPS location, then you should expect that data to be shared all over the world with nice people, nice companies and criminals (looking for when to rob you). Facebook connections and twitter followers provide information about you and your friends. If they assume you are similar to your friends, then the personal information those other people enter helps them build a profile of your likes/dislikes too.

Why Being A Meaner Boss Will Help Your Company. Everybody likes to be liked. And unless you’re the type of boss who revels in tyranny, it’s only natural to seek the favor of your underlings. But there’s a big difference between engaging with employees and fawning over them. In an era when the virtues of a collegial and collaborative environment are widely espoused, there’s guilt associated with being a strong-handed boss. Managers are often afraid to pull rank for fear they’ll fall out of grace with their reports and spoil team camaraderie if they’re not nice. CanvasMol. Atcollab.
