7:33 PM | For more emotional snacking, a patent for culinary theme songs
Innovation can be a matter of joining together things that the patent office — and maybe customers — will approve of. Corn chips, song, and the Internet are obvious influences on US patent 7942311, “Method for sequencing flavors with an auditory phrase,” granted May 17, 2011 to George Eapen of Frisco, Texas. Eapen assigned rights […]

6:06 PM | Publiscize Your Research
Author's Note: I recently came across an article talking about a new website called Publiscize, a platform that helps scientists break down and promote their published research for a lay audience. The platform, a service for science communication straight from researchers themselves, was founded by Robert Seigel, a postdoctoral research fellow in atmospheric sciences at the University of Miami. I contacted Robert to ask him a few questions about this new platform […]

4:30 PM | How To Cite Nuit Blanche and related pages
Since blogging and technical reference pages are somehow new to the scientific discourse, one sometimes wonders how Nuit Blanche and related pages should be cited. There used to be a way to say "Private conversation" or something similar, but following these guidelines here how it probably should be done in order to be consistent: * For a blog post that is entirely written by me please use the following for, say, a blog entry written on May 16, 2008:Carron I.

3:30 PM | 1250 posts on the CompressiveSensing Subreddit.
Since the first post on that CompressiveSensing subreddit, there has been more than 1250 posts there. You may consider joining and have conversations and ask questions there. One of the nice things about the overlay is that you can quickly watch the titles of the blog entries or other information thanks to the title and an image. Think of it as a table of content on what is new in compressivesensing and related fields. It's here: http://www.reddit.com/r/CompressiveSensing/  Join the […]

1:33 PM | Missteps.
I have opinions on things. They’re often not particularly well-informed. I have gut feelings that I often run with. On a regular basis I find that they lead me to cul-de-sacs where I am trying to defend a position I no longer believe in. I usually speak before thinking. I usually think before listening. I […]

5:00 AM | Speckle suppression via sparse representation for wide-field imaging through turbid media
My comment below:Speckle suppression via sparse representation for wide-field imaging through turbid media by Hwanchol Jang, Changhyeong Yoon, Euiheon Chung, Wonshik Choi, and Heung-No LeeSpeckle suppression is one of the most important tasks in the image transmission through turbid media. Insufficient speckle suppression requires an additional procedure such as temporal ensemble averaging over multiple exposures. In this paper, we consider the image recovery process based on the so-called […]

1:18 AM | Why would you go and do THAT?
“Kid, what do you want to be when you grow up?” "I’m going to be a writer!" Silence. "Or a dolphin trainer. Or a doctor like my dad." Fast forward. I’m a nerdy teenager who likes to dream big. One of my favorite memories from my homeschooling experience is sitting down in our sunroom every week with a heavily pierced and tattooed creative writing tutor who moonlighted as a fire baton-twirler. She would open a book of Georgia O’Keeffe paintings,... Read more

4:59 PM | Being a child of Moore's Law
Food for thought for the day.About two years ago, I wrote about predicting the future from the perspective of thinking linearly on an exponential slope (Predicting the Future: The Steamrollers, Predicting the Future: Randomness and Parsimony ). Here are three images I found on my Twitter feed that illustrate this. Recall that Genomic sequencing is going faster than Moore's law ( A Second Inflection Point in Genome Sequencing ? and then ...). The screen of what we initially called a […]

3:29 PM | “The Understanding of Pans in 3- to 6-Year-Old Children”
A psychology study with an easily-misunderstood title — “The Understanding of Pans in 3- to 6-Year-Old Children,” — may explain, a little, why young children sometimes watch the same videos over and over again. For anyone who makes videos for children (and of course for parents), this little experiment may be worth a couple of looks…. […]

5:00 AM | Phase Retrieval via Wirtinger Flow: Theory and Algorithms - implementation -
Phase Retrieval via Wirtinger Flow: Theory and Algorithms by Emmanuel Candes, Xiaodong Li, Mahdi SoltanolkotabiWe study the problem of recovering the phase from magnitude measurements; specifically, we wish to reconstruct a complex-valued signal x of C^n about which we have phaseless samples of the form y_r = |< a_r,x >|^2, r = 1,2,...,m (knowledge of the phase of these samples would yield a linear system). This paper develops a non-convex formulation of the phase retrieval […]
