Even since the last Around the blogs in 80 hours, The seeds of a conversation starting on Nuit Blanche could be found on the topic of Compressive Sensing in
or on the topic of Genomics in
or finally on the topic of Space in
But they could be found also in a suprisingly non sparse set of blogs. Summer is indeed a nice period as people ponder more deeply certain subjects or find new references or even meet people. The first four items are directly connected to compressive sensing:
- Andrew wrote about the Day 1 at Data Streaming in Dortmund: while Suresh wrote about the Day 2 of the same Data Streaming meeting, Andrew wrote about Day 3 here.
- Dustin was in Aggieland and found out about a paper on Quantum Tomography Under Prior Information that seems to yield some insight on phaseless measurements in compressive sensing.
- Dirk wrote about Estimating unknown sparsity, sparse signal processing and proximal Newton-type methods
- Larry wrote that Minimax Theory Saves The World nut also about The Amazing Mean Shift Algorithm, a question on Statistical Principles?, and a rant on Perfunctory Examples and the Role of Applications,
- Greg has two videos by students of his Coffee can radar course (here and here). He also has an announcement for the Next Generation Medical Imaging Workshop: Innovations Enabled by Advances in Computing, Signal Processing, and Sensor Technology . This will take place at CMU in September. The program is here.
- Brian tells us about Solving the Maximum Diversity Integer Program
- Danny tells us about the CRAY XMT hardware.
- Laurent tells us about Baroness Daubechies
- Ken tells us about Benford’s Law and Baseball
- John lets us know about MUCMD and BayLearn
- Ben Mabey let me know of the appropriate link to Recommendations @Netflix: Big Data, Smart Models & Scalable Systems by Xavier Amatriain in the previous entry on the GraphLab presentations.
- Jason points to two opposing view of academic life. I suspect the first view is a little more accurate.
- Saw that on the comments of Andrew's blog, Frederik Pohl is 92 years old and he blogs !
- Make has an entry on Laser-cut Punch Cards for Jacquard Looms. I'll have to finish my entry on a loom that predates the Jacquard Looms and even seems to have been the first fully automated machine in human history.
