16 months of Sunday Morning Insight entries

So it's been now 16 months since the Sunday Morning Insight Series saw its first entry. Here is a compendium of what came out during that time period. The first batch is mostly about compressive sensing, sensors, phase transitions and their eventual connection to machine learning.  In all cases, it looks as though sharp phase transitions between P and NP are bound to be the acid tests for linear and nonlinear models as used in machine learning and sensing. Central to this view is the fact that generic sensing is now increasingly part of a larger spectrum of ideas on how to capture data from Nature and the world around us. Let us hope that it will produce a pooling of efforts similar to the one we have seen since 2004 in the development of sparsity seeking solvers.   The second batch is about new fields that could benefit from the reevaluation afforded by compressive sensing and attendant techniques. Enjoy!

W00085666.jpg was taken on December 26, 2013 and received on Earth December 27, 2013. The camera was pointing toward SATURN at approximately 1,281,012 miles (2,061,589 kilometers) away, and the image was taken using the MT2 and CL2 filters.
