From the Simons Institute Workshop on Spectral Algorithms: From Theory to Practice, here is: Random Embeddings, Matrix-valued Kernels and Deep Learning by Vikas SindhwaniThe recent dramatic success of Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) in many applications highlights the statistical benefits of marrying near-nonparametric models with large datasets, using efficient optimization algorithms running in distributed computing environments. In the 1990's, Kernel methods became the toolset of
by Christoph Weigel | Why should we consider this year's Nobel Prize in chemistry, and why in our 'Pictures Considered' section in the first place? A hint comes from one of the many press releases: "... for improving the resolution of optical microscopes." Aha! Microscopes are at the heart of microbiology since...
Just stop what you're doing right now, and look at the gorgeous reaction setups in this Nature SI.From SI page S16. Source: Nature / Baran labMy kudos to Phil & co - they sure do capture a good visual chronology of their reactions!Remind you of anything? : )

His comments were particularly interesting in that they provide evidence that at least someone is aware of the big picture about addiction to heroin and pain pills. In my post about naltrexone, I described how some people […]
