Given the growing popularity of my online neural network videos, I finally decided to translate my course's website in English, to make the content more accessible to the non-French speaker :-) . The website is here:

http://info.usherbrooke.ca/hlarochelle/neural_networks

The website contains links to all the videos, as well as the slides and many references on neural networks. I also translated the Python assignments I use in my U. of Sherbrooke course, so people can put the concepts discussed in the course in practice, and I've created a Google group for people who would like to discuss and ask questions about the course.

I'm glad a news article about a bicyclist's or pedestrian's death is addressing this issue. People that kill and maim others on the road have too long been able to get off the hook with the "I didn't see them" defense. The last quote in the article is:

“I’m not going to generalize, but I see them [bicyclists] running stop signs, running lights, people jaywalking, people running across the street in a diagonal,” Howitt said. “How does this address the pedestrian or the bicyclist or the skateboarder who is violating the law?”

I get tired of this attitude too. Why don't we try to create urban environments and atmospheres where it is simply impossible for vulnerable road users to get killed regardless of what their action is. Why is it against the law to walk across the street? Why is it that if I want to walk to the grocery store 10 blocks from my house that I have put my life in danger 20+ times interacting with large dangerous machinery moving at high speeds and operated by ill trained people? We've created environments in our urban space that are much more dangerous than inside our factories with similarly dangerous machinery. Factories, no less, typically have zero tolerance for injuries and measures in place to ensure that. Not that long ago in human history we could walk from point A to point B with only the rare worry of being trampled by a larger animal than us. Now I have to risk being run over at every single intersection I cross. We, as a society, tolerate our urban space death wish obstacle courses just for the convenience the automobile offers us. We accept that thousands of deaths a year are just part of enjoying that convenience and do not even punish those who recklessly take other's lives. Thank God for the automobile! I'm sure glad that everything we do wrong in an automobile is just an "accident". "Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't see you and ran over you, squishing your brains out all over the pavement. I'm glad it was just an accident!"

This isn't the whole of post-publication peer review, but it's a piece. At the same time, it's a piece of evidence that the basic idea works:

Online exposure ‘leads to higher research paper correction rate’
http://www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/news/online-exposure-leads-to-higher-research-paper-correction-rate/2012415.article

If you call it the sunlight principle, or the eyeballs principle, then it doesn't sound new or trendy. But that's good. Exposing work to criticism is not new or trendy. It lies at the heart of what we mean by science, at the heart of what we mean by the self-correction of science, and at the heart of the epistemological argument for open access (as opposed to the moral, pragmatic, and economic arguments). I say more in this 2008 article.

From Peter Murray-Rust: "ACS, remove your spider traps.  We really are in Orwellian territory where the point of Publishers is to stop people reading science."
