PyBrain

ijackd_research_journal's insight:

PyBrain is a modular Machine Learning Library for Python. Its goal is to offer flexible, easy-to-use yet still powerful algorithms for Machine Learning Tasks and a variety of predefined environments to test and compare your algorithms.

PyBrain is short for Python-Based Reinforcement Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Neural Network Library. In fact, we came up with the name first and later reverse-engineered this quite descriptive "Backronym".

What lessons can organisational culture take from nature?

by Giles Hutchins

Business is on the cusp of a paradigm shift, moving from structures and hierarchies to networks and webs. Insights from nature can act as inspiration for this transition.

Thinking in terms of systems is difficult, but it is vital to operating successfully in the increasingly interconnected and uncertain business world. Observations from nature, which is made up complex systems, can yield important lessons.

The concept of emergence is fundamental to how nature operates. Physicist and systems theorist, Fritjof Capra, noted that: "Throughout the living world, the creativity of life expresses itself through the process of emergence."

Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing India Call for Participation – Poster Session » Grace Hopper India

GHC News:2012 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing India Opens Call for Participation

By Merry Maisel, San Diego Supercomputer Center

Most of us remember seeing Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper on television. We recall a charming, tiny, white-haired lady in a Navy uniform with a lot of braid, admonishing a class of young Naval officers to remember their nanoseconds. The “nanoseconds” she handed out were lengths of wire, cut to not quite 12 inches in length, equal to the distance traveled by electromagnetic waves along the wire in the space of a nanosecond–one billionth of a second. In teaching efficient programming methods, Rear Admiral Hopper wanted to make sure her students would not waste nanoseconds. Occasionally, to make the demonstration even more powerful, she would bring to class an entire “microsecond”–a coil of wire nearly 1,000 feet long that the rear admiral, herself tough and wiry, would brandish with a sweeping gesture and a steady wrist.

Collaborative Intelligence

Collaborative Intelligence | Smartphone | Scoop.it

Collaborative intelligence is the ability to produce synergy in one's environment or in one's relationship with that environment. Collaborative Intelligence is the capacity to work with the world around us, not dominate it, fight it, hide from it, ignore it or waste it. It notably includes our ability to work with people and to help them work together. It tends to have a certain elegance about it, minimizing the use of force. That is because the energy for whatever happens comes from the natural tendencies of the people and lives involved -- including our own. Our ability to work well in and with the energy that's actually present -- that is our collaborative intelligence

The development and research into liquid crystals bySivaramakrishna Chandrasekhar (1930 – 2004)

The development and research into liquid crystals bySivaramakrishna Chandrasekhar (1930 – 2004) | Smartphone | Scoop.it

Today liquid crystals are used for a variety of electronic displays - from mobiles to wide-screen televisions. They have replaced Cathode Ray Tubes and have become the quintessential molecular material for electronic displays. The development and research into liquid crystals has been due in no small measure to the pioneering work of Sivaramakrishna Chandrasekhar, known

affectionately as Chandra. Chandra was born on 6 August 1930 in Calcutta.His father worked for the colonial British Government and rose to become the Accountant General in independent India.

As a result of his father’s transfers the family often moved to different cities and Chandra’s schooling was often disrupted. Chandra did not enjoy these changes, but despite this did very well in studies. He came from an illustrious family – his mother Sitalakhmi was the younger sister of

Sir C. V. Raman – India’s first science Nobel Laureate. His younger brother S. Pancharatnam (of he Pancharatnam phase) died at a young age. His elder brother Prof. S.Ramaseshan was also a

very distinguished scientist. In 1951, Chandra topped the Nagpur University’s MSc exam receiving two gold medals and later a PhD. Later he moved to Bangalore to join the newly opened Raman Research Institute.He was the first research scholar of his famous uncle Sir C. V. Raman, but their

relationship was always that of teacher and student and never of uncle and nephew. It is about this time that he met his future wife Ila at the house of his elder brother Prof. Ramaseshan. Despite a small research fellowship Chandra managed to buy a motorcycle and rode with Ila on the pillion, causing quite a stir in the conservative scientific community! Unfortunately, he met with an

accident and had a head injury which gave him innumerable headaches for the rest of his life. Because Chandra and Ila spoke different languages and came from different regions there were some problems before marriage. But they were soon sorted out. Soon after marriage Chandra won a scholarship and left for the Cavendish Laboratory and obtained a second doctorate degree from  the Cambridge University mainly on X-ray scattering from crystals. On returning to India in

1961 he became the first Head of the Department of Physics at the University of Mysore. The department was located in a wild patch belonging to Princess Leelavathi of the Mysore royal family. Even after clearance the land was still frequented by jackals, owls and even leopards. It was here that Chandra got interested in liquid crystals – a hitherto neglected field of research. At that time,very few scientists were even aware of the existence of liquid-crystalline materials. Chandra himself later admitted that “my knowledge of these intermediate phases was, at that time,

limited to the brief accounts I had come across as a student more than ten years earlier in books published in the 1930s”. Nevertheless, he was determined to change his field of research from solid state to liquid crystals.
