A New Approach to Design of Massively Parallel Systems

A New Approach to Design of Massively Parallel Systems

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Based on insights derived from theory of global optimization, we have made a major breakthrough in physical design of several massively parallel systems. These include: New design of parallel supercomputers based on massively parallel quantum tunneling, electron optics and finite projective geometry. This approach overcomes the bandwidth and latency obstacle faced by other contemporary designs....

Lone Star Ruby Conf 2008: Using jQuery with Ruby Web Frameworks

Lone Star Ruby Conf 2008: Using jQuery with Ruby Web Frameworks

Posted in Conferences, Development, Frameworks, Web Technologies

jQuery has become incredibly popular, in large part because it makes Unobtrusive JavaScript brain-dead trivial. It’s also very small, under 25k in total, and its Ajax library is fully compatible with the way both Rails and Merb handle content-type negotiation. Its simplicity and DOM-centric approach are a perfect companion to the DRY approach taken by Ruby web frameworks. This talk will f...

The Borgmann Project: Listing all the Words in English

The Borgmann Project: Listing all the Words in English

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

Contrary to popular belief, current unabridged dictionaries contain only a small fraction of all the words in English. This is primarily because it costs money for a publisher to include a word in a dictionary, and therefore the publisher includes only words that will be "valuable" in some sense to the dictionary purchaser. As publishing moves increasingly into electronic form, the co...

The LabelMe dataset and its applications to scene and object recognition

The LabelMe dataset and its applications to scene and object recognition

Posted in Conferences, Companies, Science

We seek to build a large collection of images with ground truth labels to be used for object detection and recognition research. We used the "Tom Sawyer fence painting" approach, and developed a web-based tool that allows easy image annotation and instant sharing of such annotations. Using this annotation tool, we have collected a large dataset that spans many object categories, often...
