well worth reading.
 
As someone said in the OP (it was a private share): this article changed my mind. It's very well-written and brushes a very human story of the war on drugs. Long, but totally worth reading.

Announcing OpenDR, an approximate differentiable renderer. We take "vision as inverse graphics" literally.

OpenDR is an open-source Python-based toolkit for concisely rendering and optimizing graphics models to match image or depth evidence in a differentiable manner. 

Everything you need is here: http://open-dr.org/

For details, see the paper:

OpenDR: An Approximate Differentiable Renderer
Loper, M.M. and Black, M.J.
ECCV 2014.
pdf: http://files.is.tue.mpg.de/black/papers/OpenDR.pdf

If you are at ECCV, come to poster 19 on Thursday,1400–1645, Session 4B, Gartensaal.

Facebook's first quarter spending in R&D (around $1b USD) now exceeds the entire annual budget of Canada's science research council (NSERC), around $1b CAD. I'm not sure if this says more about Facebook or NSERC.  http://venturebeat.com/2015/04/22/why-facebooks-rd-spend-is-huge-right-now/

Unbelievable at first. But it seems to be a real sport, i.e., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyTIN9IvF1Y
Insanely agile.
 
Found this link from an article about an IROS 2013 paper.  The maneuvers are so crazy that you might think that the video is fake! (http://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/aerial-robots/iros-2013-should-quadrotors-all-look-like-this)
