Every child deserves a chance to succeed. One disadvantage faced by infants in low-income families is that they hear much less speech from their parents. By age 3, there is a "30 million word gap" between children from wealthy and low-income families. So many low-income children start school already behind their peers. Parents are hearing they should talk to their infants (thanks to First 5 California, the Clinton Foundation, ...), but many parents of all income levels still don't know how to develop this habit. The TALK project at Stanford, led by my student Kerry Wang is working to change this. Her videos have received great reviews from user testing, and so we're releasing them publicly for the first time today. Check out the site: http://talktobaby.org . Please help spread the word, and also let me know what you think!

Our Deep Speech system for speech recognition attains 16.5% error on Switchboard (Hub5'00), outperforming previous published results.  We also focus on realistic noisy environments (speech in a noisy crowd, car, etc.)  In this regime Deep Speech significantly outperforms commercial systems. Key to this approach were (i) Our scalable multi-GPU infrastructure for training an RNN, (ii) Using 7,000 hours of clean speech data, and using that to synthesize a massive 100,000 hours of data (by adding the clean data to different types of noise) to train the models.  I think end-to-end deep learning is the future of speech.  Paper here:  http://arxiv.org/abs/1412.5567
Abstract: We present a state-of-the-art speech recognition system developed using end-to-end deep learning. Our architecture is significantly simpler than traditional speech systems, which rely on laboriously engineered processing pipelines; these traditional systems also tend to perform poorly ...

I'm sad that Oliver Sacks has just passed away. His writings on  brain plasticity have been an inspiration to me in both education (MOOCs) and machine learning. I loved "The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat." Even though it contained mainly tales of brain damage, there were also gems of amazing plasticity and recovery. This is one of the books that had influenced me to believe that the human brain can learn anything---thus giving me both faith in the power of education, and hope that some day we can build a computer that can do the same. Thank you and RIP Professor Sacks.

There's a new CartoDB plugin for QGIS. I haven't used CartoDB much myself but I see the new free plan allows for up to 5 tables. 

Could be really useful for smaller community mapping projects and has potential for enterprise use.

Ωραία μουσική αλλά εντός είναι αρκετά δυνατά μερικές φορές. Δίπλα στη θάλασσα επίσης είναι πολύ όμορφα αλλά είναι ενοχλητικό που έχει τραπέζια και καθίσματα στο πεζοδρόμιο που εμποδίζουν σημαντικά τους πεζούς και τα καροτσάκια. Καλή επιλογή σαν μαγαζί κατά τα άλλα.

Μεγάλη ποικιλία ηλεκτρονικών και ηλεκτρικών συσκευών. Μια καλή επιλογή στη πόλη της Μυτιλήνης για λευκές συσκευές αλλά όσον αφορά τα ηλεκτρονικά συχνά διαθέτει αυτά που προσφέρουν στην επιχείρηση περισσότερο κέρδος παρά το καλύτερο για τον πελάτη.
