Scattered clouds at night illuminated by moonlight help to make this image interesting. Of course the infamous Bixby Bridge along the northern California coastline helps as an anchor to this shot. #landscapephotography

Earlier +Yonatan Zunger shared a gif showing slices of the human body from an MRI scan (at least I presume it was an MRI scan).
EDIT : Nope, it's photographs of a sliced-up body, thanks Josh Hendrix !
 Naturally I was compelled to re-assemble the images back into their original 3D structure using FRELLED (http://www.rhysy.net/frelled-1.html). Here's the result.

Estimating a causal effect accurately is hard, especially when a randomized experiment is not available. We've been working on this problem for some time at Google. One approach we've been developing and using internally is based on Bayesian structural time-series models.

We use these models to construct a synthetic control — what would have happened to our outcome metric in the absence of the intervention whose effect we're interested in. This approach makes it possible to estimate the causal effect that can be attributed to the intervention, as well as its evolution over time.

Today, we're excited to announce the release of CausalImpact, a new open-source R package that makes Bayesian causal inference in time series simple and fast. Visit the Google Open Source blog, linked below, to learn more.

I talked to one of the companies making the software behind the Samsung Gear VR demos; turns out it has an API and in a little while you should be able to stitch 3D video into your own apps.
Here’s a lit­tle look be­hind the scenes on the Sam­sung “Gear VR” launch; you might want to start with the nice En­gad­get write-up. A lot of their de­mos are videos you can look around in, which (it turns out) in­volves sof...
