STRIVER - Learning Retrieval Functions from Implicit Feedback

 

  ☟

 Idea

Striver is a testbed for research on machine learning algorithms that improve retrieval quality using implicit feedback.

 

In particular, Striver observes what links a user clicks on in the ranking and records this for each query. This gives weak and noisy feedback information about which links the user preferred in the returned ranking.

 

The goal of this research is to utilize this information and learn an improved ranking function.

 

The benefit of using machine learning from unobtrusive feedback is that search engines can adapt to the preferences of user groups, particular users, and the dynamic properties of a particular collection without expert parameter tuning.

 

 Try It!

A small azhdarchoid pterosaur from the latest Cretaceous, the age of flying giants #FF #archeology #history #science

A small azhdarchoid pterosaur from the latest Cretaceous, the age of flying giants #FF #archeology #history #science | Limitless learning Universe | Scoop.it
Pterosaur fossils from the Campanian–Maastrichtian of North America have been reported from the continental interior, but few have been described from the west coast. The first pterosaur from the Campanian Northumberland Formation (Nanaimo Group) of Hornby Island, British Columbia, is represented here by a humerus, dorsal vertebrae (including three fused notarial vertebrae), and other fragments. The elements have features typical of Azhdarchoidea, an identification consistent with dominance of this group in the latest Cretaceous. The new material is significant for its size and ontogenetic stage: the humerus and vertebrae indicate a wingspan of ca 1.5 m, but histological sections and bone fusions indicate the individual was approaching maturity at time of death. Pterosaurs of this size are exceedingly rare in Upper Cretaceous strata, a phenomenon commonly attributed to smaller pterosaurs becoming extinct in the Late Cretaceous as part of a reduction in pterosaur diversity and disparity. The absence of small juveniles of large species—which must have existed—in the fossil record is evidence of a preservational bias against small pterosaurs in the Late Cretaceous, and caution should be applied to any interpretation of latest Cretaceous pterosaur diversity and success.

Reading Fiction Literally Changes Your Mind! #brain #books #students #science

Reading Fiction Literally Changes Your Mind! #brain #books #students #science | Limitless learning Universe | Scoop.it
If you are committed to the pleasures of reading you may be pleased to discover that there is evidence to suggest that reading fiction is good for you. In a paper published in Trends in Cognitive Science, the psychologist and novelist Keith Oatley lays out his stall, arguing that fiction, and especially literary fiction, is a beneficial force in our lives. It has long been held – from the high-minded humanism that Dr Samuel Johnson espoused in the 18th century to the likes of the fiercely serious literary critic FR Leavis in the 20th century – that literature is good for you. But while once the only evidence considered necessary was that of the critic’s judgement and sensitivity, Oatley and other psychologists today are to be thanked for demanding rather more concrete evidence. It’s difficult to test the claim that literature makes us better people. It won’t do just to see whether people who read a lot of fiction are, on average, more thoughtful, more helpful, better liked and perhaps more successful than people who don’t. There are so many other explanations, including the rather obvious idea that people who read a lot of fiction, especially the “quality” stuff, are [...]

#FF #tech Update OS X Right Now or You Could Get Some Nasty Spyware | #CyberSecurity #Updates #Apple #Awareness | Limitless learning Universe | Scoop.it
Apple has issued an urgent security update for OS X El Capitan, OS X Yosemite and Safari to protect against the same security vulnerability that hit iOS last week.

To update on OS X, go to App Store > Updates and then install the Security Update 2016-001 (for El Capitan) or 2016-005 (for Yosemite). For users on OS X Mavericks, a Safari update is available as well.

Oh and while you’re at it, you should update iOS as well. (Just go to Settings > General > Software Update on your device, and follow the instructions.) The urgent OS X patch comes a week after Lookout Security and Citizen Lab discovered a nasty strain of spyware that could hijack an iPhone with a simple text message. Lookout Security’s Mike Murray called it “one of the most sophisticated pieces of cyberespionage software we’ve ever seen.”

Remember the critical security holes that Apple patched in iOS last week after a human rights activist had his iPhone targeted in a seemingly state-sponsored attack?

Ahmed Mansoor received two suspicious SMS messages on his iPhone, directing him to websites containing a zero-day iOS exploit. Researchers connected the attack to Israeli-based firm NSO Group, and dubbed the vulnerabilities "Trident".

Well, Apple has now quietly rolled-out a further security update revealing that the zero-day flaws are also present in Apple's OS X desktop operating system, as well as the desktop version of their OS X Safari browser.

My advice to Apple users? Make sure that your Macs, MacBooks, iPhones and iPads are up-to-date.

On OS X the easiest way to update your computer is to open the App Store app on your Mac, then click Updates in the toolbar. If updates are available, click the Update buttons to download and install them.
