  1. "We assume that private enterprise generates what is so casually called “innovation” all by itself. It does not. The Web browser you are using to read this essay was invented at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The code that makes this page possible was invented at a publicly funded academic research center in Switzerland. That search engine you use many times a day, Google, was made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation to support Stanford University. You didn’t get polio in your youth because of research done in the early 1950s at Western Reserve University School of Medicine.* California wine is better because of the University of California at Davis. Hollywood movies are better because of UCLA. And your milk was not spoiled this morning because of work done at the University of Wisconsin at Madison.

    These things did not just happen because someone saw a market opportunity and investors and inventors rushed off to meet it. That’s what happens in business-school textbooks. In the real world, we roll along, healthy and strong, in the richest nation in the world because some very wise people decided decades ago to invest in institutions that serve no obvious short-term purpose. The results of the work we do can take decades to matter—if at all. Most of what we do fails. Some succeeds. The system is terribly inefficient. And it’s supposed to be that way."

  3. in mice: "87 of 90 mice were cured of the cancer"

    One agent is currently already approved for use in humans; the other has been tested for human use in several unrelated clinical trials. A clinical trial was launched in January to test the effect of the treatment in patients with lymphoma.

    Holy fucking shit this could be amazing.

  4. handy script to dynamically pull the first media from a post and use it as Featured Image if none already set. (won't do images linked from elsewhere, but that's probably good…). I need to pluginify this, so updates to the theme don't clobber the custom code in functions.php…

  5. we are frequently overwhelmed by too much stimulation, and too many choices instead of too few. As a result, we find ourselves looking for patterns, trying to simplify issues and giving precedence to opinions that reinforce what we already believe to be true.

  7. Via OLDaily

    If you are a newcomer to the Deep Learning area, the first question you may have is "Which paper should I start reading from?"

    Here is a reading roadmap of Deep Learning papers!
    The roadmap is constructed in accordance with the following four guidelines:

    From outline to detail
    From old to state-of-the-art
    from generic to specific areas
    focus on state-of-the-art
    You will find many papers that are quite new but really worth reading.

    I would continue adding papers to this roadmap.

  8. Huh. Looks like it may have been done already… But, from the other linked articles, it looks like he's trying to weaponize it for forensics and criminology. Yikes.
