MLB Team Valuations In calculating Major League Baseball team values, Bloomberg News examines revenue from tickets sales, concessions, sponsorships and broadcast rights, as well as interests in TV channels, radio stations and real estate. Data for franchise valuations is provided by sports bankers, media consultants, municipalities, financial statements and people familiar with team operations. Calculations for the 2012 season are made available to each team and MLB for review and comment. Those who responded include Bob Quinn, Molly Jolly, Lisa Pantages and Ken Stefanov, the chief financial officers of the Milwaukee Brewers, Los Angeles Angels, San Francisco Giants and Cleveland Indians, respectively. Under baseball's collective bargaining agreement between the owners and players, revenue from large-market teams is shared with smaller-region franchises.

Deep learning Deep learning (also known as deep structured learning or hierarchical learning) is part of a broader family of machine learning methods based on learning data representations, as opposed to task-specific algorithms. Learning can be supervised, semi-supervised or unsupervised.[1][2][3] Deep learning architectures such as deep neural networks, deep belief networks and recurrent neural networks have been applied to fields including computer vision, speech recognition, natural language processing, audio recognition, social network filtering, machine translation, bioinformatics, drug design, medical image analysis, material inspection and board game programs, where they have produced results comparable to and in some cases superior to human experts.[4][5][6] Definition[edit] Deep learning is a class of machine learning algorithms that:[10](pp199–200) use a cascade of multiple layers of nonlinear processing units for feature extraction and transformation. Overview[edit] Interpretations[edit]

WinJS devient open source Windows 8 Microsoft vient de publier le code source de WinJS sous licence Apache 2.0. La mesure fut une agréable surprise qui marque non seulement un changement de politique pour la société, mais qui montre aussi que Microsoft cherche a attiré les développeurs vers ses nouvelles plateformes. WinJS est une bibliothèque JavaScript créée pour la conception des applications web tournant rapidement sur Windows 8 et ressemblant à des applications natives. La première version de WinJS offrait l’utilisation d’interfaces intéressantes, un plus grand contrôle sur son application et de meilleures performances qu’une application web classique.

The infographics of xkcd Most infographics on the web consist of generic graphics backed up with (lots of) poorly researched text. When done well these informational graphics use charts, diagrams and illustrations to make complex ideas easier to comprehend. At their best the results can be quite illuminating. Randall Munroe has produced more than a few great infographics for xkcd. His infographics can be broken down into three rough categories: Pure gag charts,Jokey graphics with a serious point, and…Well-researched highly informative graphics with some jokes sprinkled throughout. For this post I’ve compiled the more informative types. Map of the Internet 195 (2006-12-08) This first xkcd diagram maps out the IPv4 address space of 2006, with no jokey notes whatsoever. The Electromagnetic Spectrum 273 (2007-06-06) The second fully-fledged xkcd diagram is a much more amusing look at the electromagnetic spectrum, real and imagined.

Linux Took Over the Web. Now, It’s Taking Over the World On August 25, 1991, a Finnish computer science student named Linus Torvalds announced a new project. “I’m doing a (free) operating system,” he wrote on an Internet messaging system, insisting this would just be a hobby. But it became something bigger. Plus, Linux is now finding its way onto televisions, thermostats, and even cars. Click to Open Overlay Gallery The Idea But Linus shouldn’t get all the credit. In 1984, Richard Stallman started working on GNU, a Unix-clone that stands, paradoxically, for “GNU’s not Unix.” Soon, other developers were using the Linux kernel in combination with GNU and a wide variety of other tools in cobbling together their own operating systems. The Web The rise of Linux mirrors the rise of the web, which just happens to have started around the same time. Even Microsoft, once the sworn enemy of Linux, has embraced this open source OS. There are a few reasons for all this. But Linux also got lucky. The Great Beyond Android now dominates the smartphone market.

Dave's Educational Blog | Education, post-structuralism and the rise of the machines I was asked by the excellent Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach to speak to her PLP class about MOOCs, and, while we had what i thought was an excellent forty minute chat, there were tons of comments that i never had the chance to address. As i look over the questions they asked, I see that in answering their questions i have a chance to lay out many of the thoughts that I have had about MOOCs while they have been all the rage here on the internet in the last few weeks. I opened the discussion with a quick personal intro to my contribution to the MOOC discussion and then we moved to Q & A. Feel free to skim along and pick up the part of the discussion that interests you. Intro Edtechtalk and community – 2005 In 2005 Jeff Lebow and I started edtechtalk. What i discovered was that, simply by engaging in random discussions with new people we happened upon – I was learning. Rhizomes 2006 This lead me to new ideas about what it meant to learn and what it meant to know. Q & A. I see it as a win.

Oracle rachète Micros System pour 5,3 milliards de dollars Oracle va-t-il faire oublier son échec dans le "cloud" grâce à l'hôtellerie et à la distribution? Le groupe californien a en tout cas annoncé, ce lundi 23 juin, qu'il rachetait Micros System pour 5,3 milliards de dollars (soit 3,9 milliards d'euros). Micros Systems fabrique des terminaux et des logiciels pour les restaurants et les hôtels. L'entreprise emploie 6.500 personnes et a dégagé un bénéfice net de 171,4 millions de dollars. Il s'agit de la plus grosse acquisition d'Oracle depuis celle de Sun Microsystems pour 5,6 milliards de dollars en 2009. Mais, comme le souligne le Financial Times, le groupe possède un trésor de guerre de 39 milliards de dollars. Les bénéfices d'Oracle en baisse de 3,3% Oracle avait déjà acquis plusieurs entreprises plus petites dans ce secteur, comme le fabricant de logiciels de commercialisation Responsys. L'acquisition de Micros System aura un impact positif "immédiat"

How the squishy 'octobot' may change the course of robotics Step aside, T-800 and R2-D2. The future of robotics is on the horizon, and it is squishy. Harvard researchers have engineered the first robot that is both autonomous and completely soft-bodied. The fleshy automaton, described Thursday in the journal Nature, runs on hydrogen peroxide and was designed to look like a small octopus. This "octobot," researchers say, is a major step toward developing functional robots that don’t need hard skeletons or rigid moving parts. “One long-standing vision for the field of soft robotics has been to create robots that are entirely soft, but the struggle has always been in replacing rigid components like batteries and electronic controls with analogous soft systems and then putting it all together,” said co-author Robert Wood, a professor of engineering at Harvard, in a statement. Wood and colleagues used 3-D printing to build the octobot’s rubbery body. Despite having no skeleton, octopuses are remarkably powerful creatures.

Rhizomatic Learning - The community is the curriculum Doing this course I've put together a blog post to give you a sense of 'where' the course is happening and what you might like to do as part of it. READ THIS FIRST = Your unguided tour of Rhizo14 Why might this course be for you? Rhizomatic learning is a story of how we can learn in a world of abundance – abundance of perspective, of information and of connection. A paper/location based learning model forces us to make decisions, in advance, about what it is important for students to learn. This was a practical reality – if we were going to have content available for a course, it needed to be prepared in advance. What happens if we let that go? Opening blog posts thoughts Slightly more complex intro Rhizomatic Learning posits, among other things, that the community is the curriculum. Course starts January 14th. tweet at #rhizo14
