Autour des librairies et du livre How To Use HTML Meta Tags Want top search engine rankings? Just add meta tags and your website will magically rise to the top, right? Wrong. While there is still some debate about which meta tags remain useful and important to search engines, meta tags definitely aren't a magic solution to gaining rankings in Google, Bing, Yahoo, or elsewhere – so let's kill that myth right at the outset. Let's look at what meta tags are, what meta tags matter, and how to avoid mistakes when implementing meta tags on your website. What Are Meta Tags? HTML meta tags are officially page data tags that lie between the open and closing head tags in the HTML code of a document. The text in these tags is not displayed, but parsable and tells the browsers (or other web services) specific information about the page. Here's a code example of meta tags: <head><title>Not a Meta Tag, but required anyway </title><meta name="description" content="Awesome Description Here"><meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8"></head>

Digital Libraries Collaborative Research: Curriculum Development: Digital Libraries[edit] The project was originally funded for 1/1/2006 - 12/31/2008. This was extended until 12/31/2009. Project Team at VT: PI: Edward A. This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant Nos. Module Development[edit] Table 1. Note: Click here for a list of modules signed up for developments Table 2. Note: These modules can be used along with IR-related DL curriculum modules. Table 3. Note: These modules have been developed for the LucidWorks software, which is an integrated tool for processing Big Data. Table 4. Note: These modules have been developed for software tools, which are related to sound and image manipulations as well as biometric image software.

Paul Jorion, Principes des systèmes intelligents La première édition (chez Masson) date de 1990. Cf. par exemple la récente étude de Katsushi Miura et col. (« Vowel Acquisition based on an Auto-Mirroring Bias with a Less Imitative Caregiver », Advanced Robotics, vol. 26, n° 1-2, pp. 23-44, 2012) interrogeant les capacités phonétiques auto-organisatrices d’un système apprenant de nouvelles voyelles. Ajoutons que Jorion n’était pas le seul avoir tenté des rapprochements entre Intelligence Artificielle et psychanalyse : cf. par exemple Sherry Turkle, « Artificial Intelligence and Psychoanalysis: A New Alliance », Daedalus Journal of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, vol. 117, n° 1 : « Artificial Intelligence », 1988. Cf. la chronique de Didier Pourquery sur l’expression « Ou pas… », Le Monde, 2 mars 2013, p. 24. On se souvient que la question voisine de l’hétérogénéité des mathématiques au substrat cérébral avait été discutée par Jean-Pierre Changeux et Alain Connes (Matière à pensée, Paris, Odile Jacob, 2008).

The PREMIS Editorial Committee coordinates revisions and implementation of the standard, which consists of the Data Dictionary, an XML schema, and supporting documentation. Data Dictionaries & Schemas Maintenance Guidelines and Conformance Implementation and Tools Supporting Documentation The PREMIS maintenance activity is responsible for maintaining, supporting, and coordinating future revisions to the PREMIS data dictionary. and RLG The PREMIS 3.0 data dictionary was issued in June 2015.

La BNF va numériser 500 000 livres épuisés L’accord a été dévoilé cette semaine. Il associe le ministère de la Culture, la Bibliothèque nationale de France (BNF), le Syndicat national de l'édition et la Société des gens de lettres. Il prévoit la numérisation sur cinq ans, et par la BNF, de 500 000 livres épuisés du XXème siècle - mais toujours sous droits. Le financement du projet de numérisation s’effectuera grâce aux fonds alloués (750 millions d’euros) dans le cadre du grand emprunt. Les ouvrages épuisés numérisés seront conservés par la BNF. Des modalités financières et économiques toujours à définir Mais pour se procurer le livre électronique dans son intégralité, l’internaute sera redirigé vers des sites marchands. Les e-books « seront exploités dans le cadre d'une gestion collective assurant aux éditeurs et aux auteurs, représentés à parité, une rémunération équitable dans le strict respect des droits moraux et patrimoniaux » précise le ministère de la Culture dans un communiqué.
