The Neural Network Zoo - The Asimov Institute. With new neural network architectures popping up every now and then, it’s hard to keep track of them all.

The Neural Network Zoo - The Asimov Institute

Knowing all the abbreviations being thrown around (DCIGN, BiLSTM, DCGAN, anyone?) Can be a bit overwhelming at first. So I decided to compose a cheat sheet containing many of those architectures. Most of these are neural networks, some are completely different beasts. Though all of these architectures are presented as novel and unique, when I drew the node structures… their underlying relations started to make more sense. One problem with drawing them as node maps: it doesn’t really show how they’re used.

It should be noted that while most of the abbreviations used are generally accepted, not all of them are. Composing a complete list is practically impossible, as new architectures are invented all the time. For each of the architectures depicted in the picture, I wrote a very, very brief description. Rosenblatt, Frank. Broomhead, David S., and David Lowe. Hopfield, John J. These Maps Reveal The Coasts You're Actually Facing When You Look Out To Sea. If you looked straight out across the Atlantic Ocean from the east coast of the United States what would you expect to be facing?

These Maps Reveal The Coasts You're Actually Facing When You Look Out To Sea

It’s fairly likely that you would actually be viewing the west coast of Australia and possibly even Asia’s south coast, if you could hypothetically see that far. In a project called Beyond the Sea, cartographer Andy Woodruff has created a series of maps showing where our line of sight actually leads us if we gaze out over the ocean. What we would potentially see is all to do with Earth’s curvature, but also, coastlines are often jagged and face in all kinds of directions.

Andy actually did a lot of the leg-work and calculations himself, as well as designing the graphics. As he explains fully on his website: “Taking ‘across the ocean’ to mean directly across, perpendicular to the coast, then what’s across the ocean depends on where you’re standing! Each map shows the coastal views to the labeled continent. All images courtesy of Andy Woodruff Asia Europe Africa. Paper. Download 448 Free Art Books from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Or you could pay $0 to download it at MetPublications, the site offering “five decades of Met Museum publications on art history available to read, download, and/or search for free.” If that strikes you as an obvious choice, prepare to spend some serious time browsing MetPublications’ collection of free art books and catalogs. You may remember that we featured the site a few years ago, back when it offered 397 whole books free for the reading, including American Impressionism and Realism: The Painting of Modern Life, 1885–1915; Leonardo da Vinci: Anatomical Drawings from the Royal Library; and Wisdom Embodied: Chinese Buddhist and Daoist Sculpture in The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Curious and Wondrous Travel Destinations. Lessons From a Halloween Costume. A year ago I made the seemingly mundane choice to let my son choose his costume for Halloween.

Lessons From a Halloween Costume

He chose Daphne from Scooby Doo. A few parents at his preschool disapproved, I wrote a blog post about it, and in the blink of an eye, the post set off a national discussion about gender identity, bullying and a parent’s role in both issues. It seemed everywhere I turned someone was reposting my article or writing a commentary on my parenting. CNN called for an interview. Even the Well blog wrote a piece on the subject . A year later, looking back on the events before and after Halloween, I still struggle to understand what all the fuss was about. But the rest of the world, starting with some of the mothers at his preschool, saw things differently.

A lot was made about the cross-dressing aspect of my son’s choice, but in my writing about it, the message I intended to send was that bullying is a cycle, often learned at home. This year, my son made the bold decision to dress up as…Indiana Jones. Störande av allmän åsikt — We Shall Overcome. Fångar blev bättre av ADHD-medicin. Fångar som medicinerats mot ADHD-symptom förbättrade sin livskvalitet med minst 30 procent.

Fångar blev bättre av ADHD-medicin

Det visar en studie gjord av forskare vid Karolinska Institutet i Solna. ADHD är en förkortning av engelskans attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, som på svenska översätts med uppmärksamhetsstörning med överaktivitet. Man räknar med att 3-5 procent av alla barn i skolåldern har ADHD och att det är två till tre gånger vanligare hos pojkar än hos flickor. Även om det inte finns lika mycket kunskap om vuxna med ADHD som om barn och ungdomar vet man att problemen vid ADHD inte "växer bort" som man trodde förr. De grundläggande svårigheterna, dvs de som hänger samman med bristerna i de sk exekutiva funktionerna, kvarstår hos de flesta medan motorisk överaktivitet och impulsivitet oftast avtar.
