Burroughs large systems. In the 1970s, Burroughs Corporation was organized into three divisions with very different product line architectures for high-end, mid-range, and entry-level business computer systems.

Burroughs large systems

Each division's product line grew from a different concept for how to optimize a computer's instruction set for particular programming languages. The Burroughs Large Systems Group designed large mainframes using stack machine instruction sets with dense instruction syllables[NB 1] and 48-bit data words. SETI@home.

The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Recurrent Neural Networks.

There’s something magical about Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs).

The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Recurrent Neural Networks

I still remember when I trained my first recurrent network for Image Captioning. Within a few dozen minutes of training my first baby model (with rather arbitrarily-chosen hyperparameters) started to generate very nice looking descriptions of images that were on the edge of making sense. Sometimes the ratio of how simple your model is to the quality of the results you get out of it blows past your expectations, and this was one of those times. What made this result so shocking at the time was that the common wisdom was that RNNs were supposed to be difficult to train (with more experience I’ve in fact reached the opposite conclusion).

Fast forward about a year: I’m training RNNs all the time and I’ve witnessed their power and robustness many times, and yet their magical outputs still find ways of amusing me. We’ll train RNNs to generate text character by character and ponder the question “how is that even possible?” What Microsoft's HoloLens Tech Might Actually Look Like.

JustAPIs - Build REST APIs for Mobile, Web & IoT Apps. Byzantine fault tolerance. In fault-tolerant computer systems, and in particular distributed computing systems, Byzantine fault tolerance is the characteristic of a system that tolerates the class of failures known as the Byzantine Generals' Problem,[1] which is a generalized version of the Two Generals' Problem - for which there is an unsolvability proof.

Byzantine fault tolerance

Byzantine failures are considered the most general and most difficult class of failures among the failure modes. So called fail-stop failure mode occupies the simplest end of the spectrum. Whereas fail-stop failure model simply means that the only way to fail is a node crash, detected by other nodes, Byzantine failures imply no restrictions, which means that failed node can generate arbitrary data, pretending to be a correct one, which makes fault tolerance utterly difficult. The phrases interactive consistency or source congruency have been used to refer to Byzantine fault tolerance, particularly among the members of some early implementation teams.[2]

FAQs. What are the goals of Project Byzantium?


The goal of Byzantium is to develop and maintain a distribution of Linux which can run from removable media (such as a CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, or USB storage device) without needing to be installed. This distribution of Linux will include a graphical desktop, a control panel application which configures and manipulates services running on the Byzantium node, and mesh routing software which allows the creation of an entirely separate wireless Internet, functionally indistinguishable from a wireless access point of the sort that you’d find in a coffee shop or at home. The Byzantium mesh network is theoretically uncensorable because it operates in a peer-to-peer fashion and avoids the existing infrastructure of the Net; any computer with a wireless network interface can become a part of the Byzantium mesh.

Why is the project called Byzantium? What is a mesh network? Ctags.

The Columbia Group. The Art of Computer Programming. SAILOR. Human capital flight. Theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, who emigrated to the United States to escape Nazi persecution, is an example of human capital flight as a result of political change. Human capital flight, sometimes also called brain drain, refers to the emigration of intelligent, well-educated individuals to somewhere for better pay or conditions, causing the place they came from to lose those skilled people, or "brains. " Typically, emigrating brains have learned English and have moved to the United Kingdom, the US or some other English-speaking country.

An example is Albert Einstein. Brain drain is common in developing nations, particularly in former African colonies of the United Kingdom,[1] the island nations of the Caribbean,[2] and in centralized economies such as the former East Germany and the Soviet Union. Longstanding problem put to rest. Comparing the genomes of different species — or different members of the same species — is the basis of a great deal of modern biology. DNA sequences that are conserved across species are likely to be functionally important, while variations between members of the same species can indicate different susceptibilities to disease.

The basic algorithm for determining how much two sequences of symbols have in common — the “edit distance” between them — is now more than 40 years old. And for more than 40 years, computer science researchers have been trying to improve upon it, without much success. At the ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing (STOC) next week, MIT researchers will report that, in all likelihood, that’s because the algorithm is as good as it gets.

Advertisement When digital photography is getting better and better there is no secret that almost everything has to do with how many pixels your digital camera can achieve documenting.

Unfortunately, with size comes space and it takes a lot of space to save a huge picture like this. This is especially true on your digital camera where space is probably quite limited if you want to take pictures at the size of the world’s highest resolution picture.
