Sparse modeling : theory, algorithms, and applications by Irina Rish

By Irina Rish

Sparse types are fairly invaluable in medical functions, reminiscent of biomarker discovery in genetic or neuroimaging facts, the place the interpretability of a predictive version is vital. Sparsity may also dramatically increase the fee potency of sign processing.

Sparse Modeling: conception, Algorithms, and Applications presents an creation to the becoming box of sparse modeling, together with software examples, challenge formulations that yield sparse strategies, algorithms for locating such ideas, and up to date theoretical effects on sparse restoration. The booklet will get you up to the mark at the most up-to-date sparsity-related advancements and may inspire you to continue to learn concerning the field.

The authors first current motivating examples and a high-level survey of key fresh advancements in sparse modeling. The e-book then describes optimization difficulties regarding time-honored sparsity-enforcing instruments, provides crucial theoretical effects, and discusses a number of state of the art algorithms for locating sparse ideas.

The authors pass directly to handle numerous sparse restoration difficulties that reach the elemental formula to extra refined different types of based sparsity and to diversified loss features. in addition they study a specific type of sparse graphical versions and canopy dictionary studying and sparse matrix factorizations.

Darwin im Reich der Maschinen: Die Evolution der globalen by George B. Dyson, F. Griese

By George B. Dyson, F. Griese

"Beim Spiel von Leben und Evolution sitzen drei Spieler am Tisch: Menschen, die Natur und Maschinen. Ich bin entschieden auf der Seite der Natur. Die Natur, vermute ich, ist aber auf der Seite der Maschinen." George Dyson f?hrt vor, dass das Leben, nachdem es sich zun?chst durch die biologische Evolution entwickelte, nun noch einmal entsteht, diesmal durch die spontane Evolution der Intelligenz innerhalb unseres rasch expandierenden Informationsnetzes. Das Ergebnis ist eine digitale Wildnis, in der bisher unbekannte Gesch?pfe entstehen – Gesch?pfe, die uns in Hinblick auf Geschwindigkeit, Intelligenz und Langlebigkeit bald ?berlegen sein werden. Dieses originelle Buch zeigt, wie die Entstehung der Maschinen mit ihrem Eigenleben – und m?glicherweise einem eigenen Geist – schon lange in der Literatur und Wissenschaft vorausgesehen wurde, nachweisbar in den Werken von Hobbes, Samuel Butler, Erasmus Darwin und anderen. Dyson beschreibt diese substitute intellektuelle Geschichte und erz?hlt, wie fr?here Denker das durchgespielt haben, was once dann zu den Entdeckungen der wissenschaftlichen Abenteurer des 20. Jahrhunderts, unter ihnen Alan Turing, Norbert Wiener und John von Neumann, wurde. Wie Dyson schreibt, handelt dieses Buch nicht von der Zukunft. Es geht darum, wo wir jetzt stehen und wie wir hierher kamen; was once aufregend genug ist.
