Last week I attended the Annual Meetings of the (other) ESA in Austin, TX. Actually, I kinda helped organize that meeting. (More about that in my next post, which will focus on my time on the Program Committee.) When I first submitted the title for the poster in June I had only just started this […]

Yann LeCun provided additional insight to the Signal Recovery from $\ell_p$ Pooling Representations entry. Go read it here. Afonso Bandeira just sent me the following: Hi Igor, First of all, congrats on the great blog! I noticed that you mentioned the Grothendieck problem a few days ago in your blog. I just wrote a blog post (about my work on a natural generalization of that problem) where I discuss that problem quite a bit. I thought you might want to take a […]

Fortunately, I get to tell you about someone else’s faux pax, not my own. Nice change of pace, eh? I’m interviewing students for a position right now.  I have to admit it’s a bit weird because I really never saw myself as being in a position to hire someone.  I’ve always been on the opposite […]

Drexel begins its early observance of the National Computer Science Education Week by hosting a variety of events from a computer programming competition to a workshop on making video games. One project could have an impact that lasts well beyond the week of computer science celebration. Classes of sixth, seventh and eighth graders at St. … Continue reading »

Evidence of one sort or another piles deep, deep, deep for or against there being significance to the length of a person’s second finger as compared with the length of that person’s fourth finger. Now implicated in the ever-more-encompassing story: video game addiction. Here’s a new (and perhaps the only) study on this particular vexing question: […]

This study was one of the first to explicitly introduce the concept of the “Scotch egg” into modern physics research. Scotch eggs are a foodstuff of sorts (with a history that is in some dispute).

Critical Factors for New Product Developments in SMEs Virtual TeamNader Ale Ebrahim, Shamsuddin Ahmed and Zahari Taha Additional contact information Post-Print from HAL Abstract: Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are considered as an engine for economic growth all over the world and especially for developing countries. During the past decade, new product development (NPD) has increasingly been recognized as a critical factor in ensuring the continued survival of SMEs. On the other […]

In Sunday Morning Insight: A Quick Panorama of Sensing from Direct Imaging to Machine Learning, we saw that the main difference between neural networks these days and traditional sensing revolved around the acquisition stage: It is linear in compressive sensing while nonlinear in neural networks. At some point the two fields will collide. One of the question would be to ask how does the nonlinear aquisition stage permits some sort of recovery, which seems to be the question asked in the […]
