Amazon Launches AWS IoT — A Platform For Building, Managing And Analyzing The Internet Of Things Make way for another big player entering the Internet of Things space. Amazon today is announcing its long-awaited IoT platform for AWS at its re:Invent developer conference in Las Vegas. As Amazon describes it, it is a managed cloud platform “that lets connected devices easily and securely interact with cloud applications and other devices.” The platform, which is launching in beta, will be able to support billions of devices and trillions of messages, “and can process and route those messages to AWS endpoints and to other devices reliably and securely.” AWS IoT will integrate with Lambda, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon S3, Amazon Machine Learning, and Amazon DynamoDB to build IoT applications, manage infrastructure and analyze data. The platform will make it easier for developers to ingest incoming data from devices using standard gateways and protocols like MQTT and HTTPS.
Multistyle Pastiche Generator Vincent Dumoulin, Jonathon Shlens, and Manjunath Kudlur have extended image style transfer by creating a single network which performs more than one stylization of an image. The paper has also been summarized in a Google Research Blog post. The source code and trained models behind the paper are being released here. The model creates a succinct description of a style. These descriptions can be combined to create new mixtures of styles.

Training - Bioinformatics Core Wiki BIST "Introduction to Biostatistics" Course Course Description This introductory course to statistics and probability theory is modeled after the traditional university course Statistics 101 and will be given by the CRG staff and PhD students. The material is offered in 5 consecutive modules (please see Course Syllabus below), each containing a morning lecture and an afternoon practicum in a computer class. For practical exercises we will use R programming language and R Studio.
sans titre MongoDB Community Server does not come packaged with a GUI-style administrative interface. Instead most administration is done from command line tools such as the:program:mongo shell. However some GUI’s are available as commercial offerings or separate community projects and are listed below. Some of these tools are focused on administration, while others focus on data viewing. Third-Party Open-Source Tools Strategic Thinking: 11 Critical Skills Needed By J. Glenn Ebersole Strategic thinking is a process that defines the manner in which people think about, assess, view, and create the future for themselves and others. Research Blog: Introducing the Open Images Dataset Posted by Ivan Krasin and Tom Duerig, Software Engineers In the last few years, advances in machine learning have enabled Computer Vision to progress rapidly, allowing for systems that can automatically caption images to apps that can create natural language replies in response to shared photos. Much of this progress can be attributed to publicly available image datasets, such as ImageNet and COCO for supervised learning, and YFCC100M for unsupervised learning. Today, we introduce Open Images, a dataset consisting of ~9 million URLs to images that have been annotated with labels spanning over 6000 categories. We tried to make the dataset as practical as possible: the labels cover more real-life entities than the 1000 ImageNet classes, there are enough images to train a deep neural network from scratch and the images are listed as having a Creative Commons Attribution license*.
GSL - GNU Scientific Library Introduction The GNU Scientific Library (GSL) is a numerical library for C and C++ programmers. It is free software under the GNU General Public License. The library provides a wide range of mathematical routines such as random number generators, special functions and least-squares fitting. There are over 1000 functions in total with an extensive test suite. The complete range of subject areas covered by the library includes, Table Browser Use this program to retrieve the data associated with a track in text format, to calculate intersections between tracks, and to retrieve DNA sequence covered by a track. For help in using this application see Using the Table Browser for a description of the controls in this form, the User's Guide for general information and sample queries, and the OpenHelix Table Browser tutorial for a narrated presentation of the software features and usage. For more complex queries, you may want to use Galaxy or our public MySQL server.
Game Theory - Stanford University & The University of British Columbia About the Course Popularized by movies such as "A Beautiful Mind", game theory is the mathematical modeling of strategic interaction among rational (and irrational) agents. Beyond what we call 'games' in common language, such as chess, poker, soccer, etc., it includes the modeling of conflict among nations, political campaigns, competition among firms, and trading behavior in markets such as the NYSE. Neural Networks: You’ve Got It So Easy Neural networks are all the rage right now with increasing numbers of hackers, students, researchers, and businesses getting involved. The last resurgence was in the 80s and 90s, when there was little or no World Wide Web and few neural network tools. The current resurgence started around 2006.
Bridgecrest Bioinformatics: The Use of Log-Log plots to show technical reproducibility of NGS data Reproducibility, the ability for the same input to produce the same output, is an important concept in the sciences. One of the claimed advantages of next-generation sequencing over its microarray predecessor is the high correlation among technical replicates. One common way to show the reproducibility between two replicates is a log-log plot of RPKM values (RPKM normalizes number of reads by transcript length and mapped reads). I would like to propose an alternative to the log-log plot that may have a clearer interpretation and may be more appropriate for read count data. Log-Log RPKM plots Below are some links showing the log-log RPKM plots between two samples.
