He and his colleagues have been working on extending the theory to other domains of cognition. One day, such cognitive models could even lead to a new kind of artificial intelligence built on a different mathematical foundation than that of today’s deep learning methods. Only last month, scientists built a novel neural network model of time perception, which was based solely on measuring and reacting to changes in a visual scene. (The approach, however, focused on the sensory input part of the picture: what was happening on the surface, and not deep down in the memory-related brain regions that Tsao and Howard study.)
Even with TensorFlow in hand, building a deep learning app still requires some serious craft. But this too may change in the years to come. As Dean points out, a Google deep-learning open source project and a Google deep-learning cloud service aren’t mutually exclusive. Tim O’Reilly’s big idea may still happen.
The concert experience is captured using 10 cameras on stage, behind the stage, and in the audience—giving fans the ultimate all-access pass.

Burch was disappointed, however, when the solar panel systems for his phone failed during the trip, leading him to scrounge for power from other climbers. His laptop computer failed as well, which is not uncommon in the harsh conditions of Everest, he said.
Krikorian estimates the parts for the device will cost a cool $1,200 – about three times the price of a top-end TiVo set-top box.
Matrimonial websites are the cyber version of the traditional “seeking bride/groom” Sunday section found in any Indian newspaper.
RLV mode displays the rider’s speed, cadence, power output, and heart rate (if you have an optional heart rate sensor). Additionally, RLV rides can be saved, allowing you to compete against your current performance on future rides. This feature is one of the most useful aspects of Fortius, since the desire to “beat” a previous ride provides irresistible motivation. And if you have multiple riders at your house, you can set up separate identities for GeekDads, GeekMoms, and Geeklings, and then compete against each others’ historical performance.
This Asus Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid Edition retails for $499.99 but can be found for less on Amazon.
In an advertisement published in the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, they say: “We’re deeply troubled by the potential legacy of the outgoing Justice Department, which could undermine our industry’s future and threaten our nation’s recent economic success.”
With New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer allegedly caught nibbling the fruits of a high-class, tech-savvy prostitution ring, it’s clearer than ever the world’s oldest profession is doing a fine job of harnessing the latest technology.
And just when you think you’ve got the story figured out… when book #1 is wrapped up and you’re feeling all safe and secure again? Ryan and Sarah have one final video that’s being broadcast live to the world as they attempt to solve the mystery. Want a hint at what happens?

Five years ago he’d never heard of the “godfather of soul,” James Brown. Now an Israeli mashup artist is basking in the spotlight after making the funkiest tracks on the internet, using YouTube clips of musicians who’ve never met each other.
“Cats have vivid imaginations and explore the world with their heightened senses,” Friskies brand manager Shaun Belongie said in an e-mail to Wired. “We love cat videos because they showcase that imagination and capture the fun of playtime in motion unlike any other medium.”
Other researchers say the mistake might not be with nature, but in the way the pigs are raised. In confinement, pigs are fed grains that are high in phosphorus. But if the pigs are allowed to graze, the amount of grain they eat can be minimal, according to E. Ann Clark, associate professor of plant agriculture at the University of Guelph.
