Sweet memories from my trip to Goa between December 2009 and January 2010 (the first time I met my Svetlana).

Yesterday the Ivanpah solar plant went live.  It's in the desert near Las Vegas, and uses thousands of mirrors to concentrate light onto a tower, generating heat and power.  To acknowledge the investment by Google, they reoriented some mirrors :-)

Wow - this is impressive stuff.... Whats even more cool is that it doesn't even rely on features to get key-points, but instead relies directly on image intensities... Can't wait to try it out...!
 
Impressive improvements to the semi-dense SLAM

Knowledge and education has enabled quicker advancements with time. Here are 17 equations that really changed the world.
 
17 Equations That Changed the World

This is Ian Stewart's list, from his book by the same name.

What are some other choices?  I would nominate the quadratic equation, A =pi r², and Google page rank.

Eavesdropping on a CPU fan during decryption using a microphone may be enough to crack keys via a side channel attack. One of the coauthors of this paper is Adi Shamir (the S from RSA), so this is legit stuff! Very scary!
 
This system likes the sound of your encryption keys.

Recovery of Rusalka following a depth sensor failure. Too bad it is the second depth sensor outage or we could keep flying it until the batteries run out.

Just got back from a night at the Montecito Sequoia lodge - I heartily recommend it to everyone. This was my first time up to Sequoia and the Kings Canyon national parks in winter. Most of the roads were closed at this time, but the lodge was easy to find and turned out to exceed my expectations. Situated at a very scenic location on the banks of a small lake it offers tons of activities for people of all ages. In the winter there are activities like snow-shoeing, sledging etc., while during summer one can engage in archery and a lot more. They have also got lots of games which one can spend time playing with if one has to stay indoors. No television - but why do you need that in an amazing place like Sequoia. Internet works in the main lodge, so you can still keep in touch even though your cell phone won't work anywhere else.The rooms were comfortable, service was really good. But the best part about this place was the meals they serve - amazing buffets with food that tastes home-made. I'm going back here in summer, and this time I'll try to stay longer.
