A little girl raised on a faraway island. Her town is small, deeply religious. Dancing is forbidden; family members speak of spirits, and superstitions abound. Her parents are not well-off, do not attend university. But her mother, who once dreame...

Can manipulation of market indexes be detected with machine learning techniques such as Support Vector Machines (SVM)? An interesting case study, in the context of the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor) manipulation in 2005, is an analysis of Libor submissions with data from 2005 until 2011 used to train a SVM. It appears to be a promising approach.

The adoption of IPv6 addresses is somewhat lower-than-expected and the transition from IPv4 can take a lot more time than previously thought. Will it happen before it is too late? Are we facing an internet address crisis?

Acredito que o pleno exercício da cidadania passa cada vez mais pela proficiência no manuseio da informação. Leitura, escrita, uso e, pasmem, programação de computadores. Não estou dizendo que, no geral, os programadores são melhores cidadãos. Assim como não diria o mesmo dos escritores. Contudo, cada vez mais, é digitalmente que a informação é manipulada e penso que um mínimo de noção de como são as instruções seguidas por computadores ajuda a ter uma perspectiva melhor do mundo em que vivemos. Então, criançada, programaê!

When designing user interfaces, it is useful to remember that we have some cognitive biases that are relevant to our user experience.

If you can understand how people think and design around their inherent quirks, you have at your disposal a powerful set of tools. I take a look at six, looking at how and how not to use them.

Easing the use of free software tools by neuroscientists is one of the many merits of the NeuroDebian project.

Elsevier appears to be a company that didn't get the "don't be evil" spirit. When they acquire an "open" solution, instead of that making them learn about openness to diversity, it gives them reason to start menacing an entire ecossystem of online reference managers. Does someone really think they will stop at Academia.edu? #ftl
A week ago, Elsevier sent messages to some users of Academia.edu, a social network for researchers (Source: Chronicle). Elsevier asked these users to remove some of their papers from their profile page at Academia.edu. Apparently, Elsevier wasn't happy that the authors published papers that ...

Story
Introduction
Those who know me would agree that I like science. I like science and its several branches. I am an applied mathematician and hold a master's degree in Neuroscience, but I enjoy Astronomy, Semiotics, Philosophy, Cognitive Sciences, Computers (Hardware and Software), Ethology, Genetics and so on.

Another passion is dancing. My favorite rythms are tango and gafieira.

Think about it:
