How we're teaching computers to understand pictures | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
When a very young child looks at a picture, she can identify simple elements: "cat," "book," "chair." Now, computers are getting smart enough to do that too. What's next? In a thrilling talk, computer vision expert Fei-Fei Li describes the state of the art -- including the database of 15 million photos her team built to "teach" a computer to understand pictures -- and the key insights yet to come.

Seemingly out of nowhere, strange interview questions like, “If you were an animal, which one would you want to be?” or “Tell me about your most awkward moment,” have become surprisingly popular with hiring managers. As if the interview process wasn't stressful enough.

So, what can you do when an interviewer wants to hear about your most creative Halloween costume? Here's a four-step plan to help you avoid that deer in the headlights look.

- vérifier l'exactitude des informations et la légitimité des sources

- faire aussi beau que possible !

Writing Is Design, Too :: UXmatters

The year is 2015. There’s a good chance you have a smartphone in your pocket—a marvelous device with which you can access, if not the sum total of all human knowledge, at least enough of it to do pretty well in a pub quiz. (For readers in the USA, that’s a bar quiz.) You can order your groceries online, buy books and movies from Amazon, and search the Web with Google and Bing. So it’s fair to say that you’re at least reasonably familiar with the Web.

Experiencing Poor Online Copy“I’m really disappointed to see—on a fairly regular basis—just how poorly people still write online copy.”

Keeping this reality in mind, I’m really disappointed to see—on a fairly regular basis—just how poorly people still write online copy.

On-Screen Proofreading: A Handbook for Editors of Academic and Scientific Articles

On-Screen Proofreading: A Handbook for Editors of Academic and Scientific Articles focuses on the professional on-screen proofreading and editing of scholarly papers. The Handbook provides practical detailed advice on the aspects of academic and scientific articles that tend to be particularly challenging for authors and editors alike. The reader is guided through the process of proofreading an article from managing files, tracking changes and adding comments in Microsoft Word to producing a clean copy ready for publication and returning it to the author. Individual chapters explain the parts of a scholarly article, their importance and their positions in a paper; outline different referencing styles and sound practices for providing complete and accurate references and quotations; discuss language and writing style with information on spelling, capitalisation, punctuation, special fonts, numbers, vocabulary, discipline-specific terminology, jargon, abbreviations, syntax, grammar and sentence and paragraph structure; and examine the effective presentation and placement of headings, tables, figures, lists and appendices. Intended to be both a step-by-step guide to the proofreading process and an informative manual to be consulted as necessary when questions and problems arise, this Handbook will be an indispensible aid to proofreaders working predominantly with digital documents in a wide range of academic and scientific disciplines, including the Social, Physical and Biological Sciences, the Humanities, Medicine, Engineering, Mathematics, Economics, Law and Management.

How Simple Questions Lead to Great Innovations

How Simple Questions Lead to Great Innovations | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
There is a myth that successful companies begin with grandiose ambitions. The implication is that entrepreneurs should start with megalomaniac goals in order to succeed. To the contrary, my observation is that great companies began by wondering about simple things, and this leads to asking simple questions that beget companies:
Therefore, what? This question arises when you spot or predict a trend and wonder about its consequences. It works like this: “Everyone will have a smartphone with a came
