How to read a SOM -

Because SOMs represent complex data in an intuitive two-dimensional perceptional space, data dependences can be understood easiliy if one is familiar with the map visualization. The following example provides an intuitive explanation of the basics of Viscovery visualization. Imagine 1000 people on a football field. We define a number of attributes (e.g. gender, age, family status, income) and ask the people on the field to move closer to other people who are most similar to them according to all these attributes.

After a while, everyone on the field is surrounded by those people that share similar attribute values. Now imagine that, looking over the crowd, you ask everyone to raise a colored flag according to their age (blue for <20, green for 20 to 29, yellow for 30 to 39, orange for 40 to 49, and red for 50 and over). Finally, you can put all the photos side by side and inspect the dependences. The View from the Front Seat of the Google Self-Driving Car — Backchannel. After 1.7 million miles we’ve learned a lot — not just about our system but how humans drive, too.

The View from the Front Seat of the Google Self-Driving Car — Backchannel

About 33,000 people die on America’s roads every year. That’s why so much of the enthusiasm for self-driving cars has focused on their potential to reduce accident rates. As we continue to work toward our vision of fully self-driving vehicles that can take anyone from point A to point B at the push of a button, we’re thinking a lot about how to measure our progress and our impact on road safety. Difference Between Tier 1 & Tier 2 Companies. Seoul Korea 7 Day Itinerary and Summary. This was the full rundown of the schedule that we eventually ended up following.

Seoul Korea 7 Day Itinerary and Summary

Note that we had to make a lot of adjustments along the way. Initially we wanted to go to Nami Island on Sat February 16 but with the weather as cold as it was, it didn’t make that much sense. Instead we ended up spreading out the schedule a bit more. Website for the decision notifications of papers for the 25th World Road Congress.

SafetyNet. SafetyNet is an Integrated Project funded by DG-TREN of the European Commission.


The objective of the project is to build the framework of a European Road Safety Observatory, which will be the primary focus for road safety data and knowledge, as specified in the Road Safety Action Plan 2003. The Observatory will support all aspects of road and vehicle safety policy development at European and national levels. It will make new proposals for common European approaches in several areas including exposure data and Safety Performance Indicators. It will extend the CARE database to incorporate the new EU Member States and will develop new fatal and in-depth accident causation databases.

How safe are your roads? Commission road safety statistics show small improvement for 2014. Following two years of solid decreases in the number of people killed on Europe's roads, the first reports on road deaths in 2014 are disappointing.

How safe are your roads? Commission road safety statistics show small improvement for 2014

According to the figures released today, the number of road fatalities has decreased by approximately 1% compared to 2013. This follows on the 8% decrease in 2012 and 2013. The figures reveal a total of 25 700 road deaths in 2014 across all 28 Member States of the EU. Whilst this is 5700 fewer than in 2010, it falls short of the intended target decrease. Understanding and Interpreting Lux Values.

The primary sensor data type for ambient light sensors is illuminance in lux (lumens per square meter).

Understanding and Interpreting Lux Values

The principles outlined in this topic are based on taking lux values as input and reacting to that data in a program. Lux readings are directly proportional to the energy per square meter that is absorbed per second. Human perception of light levels is not so straightforward. Mietvertrag: 3 Monate Kündigungsfrist umgehen ist nur einvernehmlich möglich! Immer wieder kommt es vor, dass Mieter unvorhergesehen sehr schnell umziehen müssen oder wollen und ihren Mietvertrag daher lieber heute als morgen kündigen würden.

Mietvertrag: 3 Monate Kündigungsfrist umgehen ist nur einvernehmlich möglich!

Das Gesetz sieht für Mieter eine Kündigungsfrist von 3 Monaten vor. Im Regelfall ist der Wunsch oder die Notwendigkeit, das Mietverhältnis zu beenden, rechtzeitig vorher abzusehen und die gesetzliche Kündigungsfrist nicht zu lang. Soll der Auszug allerdings sofort erfolgen, haben viele Mieter ein großes Interesse daran, das Mietverhältnis schon vor Ablauf der 3 Monate zu beenden. Ob und unter welchen Voraussetzungen dies möglich ist, erfahren Sie in diesem Artikel. How To Group Objects Into Similar Categories, Cluster Analysis. General Purpose The term cluster analysis (first used by Tryon, 1939) encompasses a number of different algorithms and methods for grouping objects of similar kind into respective categories.

How To Group Objects Into Similar Categories, Cluster Analysis

A general question facing researchers in many areas of inquiry is how to organize observed data into meaningful structures, that is, to develop taxonomies. In other words cluster analysis is an exploratory data analysis tool which aims at sorting different objects into groups in a way that the degree of association between two objects is maximal if they belong to the same group and minimal otherwise.
