This past month, we were shocked to hear about Ernie Esser's Passing (and Legacy), a new Highly technical Reference Page was created (The Superiorization Methodology and Perturbation Resilience of Algorithms), the Paris Machine Learning Meetup #7 Season 2 took place (Automatic Statistician, ML et Entreprise, Algo Fairness/ Certifying and removing Disparate Impact). In the meantime, we are collectively waiting for something new (No Pressure) 20 years later. our part of the blogosphere showed us The great Convergence in Action.

The previous Nuit Blanche in Review for February 2015 is here.

In the meantime, a few implementations were made available by their authors:

- Python version of SPGL1 - implementation -
- Thesis: Spectral classification using convolutional neural networks, Pavel Hála - implementation -
- DECOPT - DEcomposition Convex OPTimization - implementation -
- Variational Inference for Sparse Spectrum Approximation in Gaussian Process Regression -implementation -

- Sunday Morning Insight: Muon Tomography of Fukushima Daiichi's reactor #1
- Sunday Morning Insight: Another Strange PSF in the Wild
