These documents were the primary vehicle for summarizing the day-to-day sensitive intelligence and analysis, as well as late-breaking reports, for the White House. As part of this declassification effort, the President’s Intelligence Checklists (or PICLs, pronounced “pickles”) and PDBs delivered to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson – some 2,500 documents and 19,000 pages – were released for the first time on 16 September 2015.

Домашнее задание от МТИ: пишем нейросеть для манёвров в дорожном трафике / Geektimes. DeepTraffic — интересная интерактивная игра, поучаствовать в которой может любой желающий, а студенты Массачусетского технологического института (МТИ), которые изучают курс глубинного обучения в беспилотных автомобилях, обязаны показать хороший результат в этой игре, чтобы им засчитали выполненное задание.

Домашнее задание от МТИ: пишем нейросеть для манёвров в дорожном трафике / Geektimes

Участникам предлагают спроектировать агента ИИ, а именно, спроектировать и обучить нейронную сеть, которая покажет себя лучше конкурентов в плотном дорожном потоке. В управление агенту даётся один автомобиль (красного цвета). Он должен научиться маневрировать в потоке наиболее эффективным способом. По условиям игры, в автомобиль изначально встроена система безопасности, то есть он не сможет врезаться или улететь с дороги. Задача игрока — только управлять разгоном/торможением и сменой полос. Изначально предлагается базовый код агента, который можно модифицировать прямо в игровом окне — и сразу запускать на исполнение, то есть на обучение нейросети. Базовый код.

38 Tools For Beautiful Data Visualisations. As we enter the Big Data era, it becomes more important to properly expand our capacity to process information for analysis and communication purposes.

38 Tools For Beautiful Data Visualisations

In a business context, this is evident as good visualisation techniques can support statistical treatment of data, or even become an analysis technique. But also, can be used as a communication tool to report insights that inform decisions. Today there are plenty of tools out there that can be used to improve your data visualisation efforts at every level. Below we list a non-exhaustive list of resources.
