Around the blogs in 80 hours, ICALP2011GT program

Danny Bickson mentions a list of Matrix Factorization made by Marinka Zitnik and specifically the ones implemented in GraphLab (a competitor to Hadoop)Marinka Zitnik works on Orange for her Google Summer of Code project. From the Orange webpage:
Open source data visualization and analysis for novice and experts. Data mining through visual programming or Python scripting. Components for machine learning. Extensions for bioinformatics and text mining. Packed with features for data analytics.
Other matrix factorizations can be found here. Maybe we ought to have a place where all these are listed ?

Bob has three new entries:

Andrew: RANDOM/APPROX accepts…

Gonzalo: Is the PHY Layer Dead? about how sensing in hardware is dead or not in cognitive radio.. Fascinating stuff.

Dan: Simulating visual artifacts with Fourier optics

Meena: Shape analysis: on selecting a set of points or landmarks

Machine4Vision has a view from the trenches: Plan for the worst (and hope for the best)

Credit: NASA, ISS027-E-036759 (23 May 2011) --- This image of the International Space Station and the docked space shuttle Endeavour, flying at an altitude of approximately 220 miles, was taken by Expedition 27 crew member Paolo Nespoli from the Soyuz TMA-20 following its undocking on May 23, 2011 (USA time). The pictures taken by Nespoli are the first taken of a shuttle docked to the International Space Station from the perspective of a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. Onboard the Soyuz were Russian cosmonaut and Expedition 27 commander Dmitry Kondratyev; Nespoli, a European Space Agency astronaut; and NASA astronaut Cady Coleman. Coleman and Nespoli were both flight engineers. The three landed in Kazakhstan later that day, completing 159 days in space.
