Deep Learning
Forum — A World of Ideas, +BBC

Deep Learning is the new approach to artificial intelligence, which gets machines to identify and learn from patterns, inspired by our understanding of neural connections in the brain.

To find out how Deep Learning works Bridget Kendall talks to Professor Zoubin Gharamani, of Information Engineering at the University of Cambridge, Professor Trevor Darrell, who is leading cutting edge work on robots and drones at Berkeley in California and Google's Professor +Geoffrey Hinton from the University of Toronto, one of the most important pioneers in the emerging field of Deep Learning, who has spent thirty years building neural networks.

Calling the North Carolina murders a parking dispute is an abomination. It’s an indicator of the real social cancer tearing apart the soul of this country.

...here we are, considering the possibility that the only thought running through Hicks’ mind as he unloaded his gun on three innocent Muslims was concern over where he would park his car.

Here we are living in a country where it takes tragedies of this kind to spur social media reminders that #BlackLivesMatter and #MuslimLivesMatter.

Here we are, where the lives of minority groups are so devalued that before conversations about prejudice against them can ever begin, we look for excuses.

Obesity. Asthma. Headlock. Thuggery. Troublemaker. And, now, Parking. We explain away violence that targets minority communities, and it has to stop!

Source: MIC.COM. By Nathan Lean. The shooting deaths of three Muslim university students last week in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, has ignited a firestorm of debate about the killer's motives. According to his neighbors, Craig Stephen Hicks, the 46-year-old charged with murdering Deah Barakat, ...

How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime
Childhood trauma isn’t something you just get over as you grow up.

Pediatrician Nadine Burke Harris explains that the repeated stress of abuse, neglect and parents struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues has real, tangible effects on the development of the brain.

This unfolds across a lifetime, to the point where those who’ve experienced high levels of trauma are at triple the risk for heart disease and lung cancer. An impassioned plea for pediatric medicine to confront the prevention and treatment of trauma, head-on.

Speaker: +Nadine Burke Harris, MD: Pediatrician, Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation

As the moon orbits the Earth, we only ever see the one side. This is because the moon is tidally locked — a single rotation of its axis takes the same amount of time as a single orbit around the Earth, so that the same side is always facing the Earth.

This means that the far side of the moon is a mystery to most of us. We're familiar with the smudges of the Man in the Moon (or the Moon Rabbit), but who knows what pareidoliac delights lurk on the moon's other face?

Plesk and Django - As a follow-up to the article about Ruby on Rails and Plesk I’ll try to explain how to organize Django hosting on Plesk. We will use an Ubuntu 14.04 server and Plesk 12.0 for our experiments. I assume that you will get this configuration somehow. Plesk may use Apache and Apache+nginx for serving of websites. In the scope of this article we’ll check how to setup Django apps hosting only for Apache without nginx. Let’s get started. First of all let’s ch... http://ow.ly/2PwBcI

Writing goo.gl/4fN2BA
Forum: A World of Ideas +BBC World Service 

Fewer and fewer of us write by hand much any more. Does it matter? Can keyboards and touch screens harm our development and creative wellbeing? There is new research to suggest it might!

Discussing handwriting, Bridget Kendall's guests on this week's Forum, cognitive neuroscientist Karin James, award winning novelist Mohsin Hamid and calligrapher Paul Antonio think it does matter.

❝ It isn't what we don't know that gives us trouble, it's what we know that ain't so. ❞ —Will Rogers
Introduction
Briefly: INTJ (NT)! ...take it with a pinch of salt, please! :-)

Things I share may fall under a variety of topics:
    — film, photography, diving, biking
    — information technology, science
    — jazz, art, literature, architecture
    — anthropology, philosophy, theology
    — unix, Linux, Android news & development
    — ITSM, EA, ESA, IT Gov, Project Mgt, IT Mgt, I&O Mgt
    — environment, social science & occasional political topics

I have opinions on many things, and sometimes keep them to myself. But at other times I surprise myself posting topics that may be critical of commonly held beliefs! And here are a few words to all the Internet Philosophers, and then some to all the Internet Poets out there!

By the way, I use the Oxford comma, but very carefully & and I do respect the comma, a lot!

Follow at your own risk; and before you judge me, make sure you're perfect! ;-)

Noteviews & opinions expressed here are my own, and not my employers', present or past; no other party necessarily agrees with them (views) either!

      ❝ When I get a little money I buy books;
      and if any is left I buy food and clothes. ❞
