¿El futuro de la ciencia espacial?; un mapa tecnológico del universo


Siempre pensé que alguien me contaría cuál es el futuro de la ciencia espacial. Recuerdo haber estado en la conferencia de la Asociación de Información Geográfica (AGI) hace 8 años, intentando entender cómo podía impactar el espacio en nuestro mundo. Allí asistí a las primeras demostraciones de realidad aumentada en pantalla gigante y “caminar” a […]

Le futur des sciences spatiales: cartographie technique de l’univers


J’ai toujours pensé que le futur des sciences spatiales serait un domaine que d’autres personnes viendraient me raconter. Comme par exemple lorsqu’il y a 8 ans, j’étais assise dans l’auditoire de l’Association d’Information Géographique et j’écoutais le conférencier nous expliquer comment l’espace était en train de changer le monde. J’ai alors vu une des premières […]

Enrolling in Artificial Intelligence Kindergarten


Building really intelligent machines, or so-called strong artificial intelligence (AI), is a daunting task for technology. I’ve worked on an approach that requires two technological novelties: One is a new way to organize knowledge; the other is a new way to acquire knowledge. Both heavily mimic biology. The resulting method is called AI-Kindergarten and allows for the […]

Putting machine learning into context

machine learning

Machine Learning is getting a lot more air time these days but are we actually sure what it is? The most common definition goes along the lines of: It gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed” (Arthur Samuel, 1959).

Notes from a data scientist: Creating simulated data for reservation lengths

data-scientist CSC Blogs

I’m a big fan of vicarious learning. Sharing experiences and mistakes makes us all smarter and able to do more. Here, I share a rather brutal learning experience I recently encountered with the hope that you may not go through the same pain with your own research. As my colleague Jerry Overton recently shared, CSC […]
