Scale-free networks are rare
Real-world networks are often said to be ”scale free”, meaning their degree distribution follows a power law. Broido and Clauset perform statistical tests of this claim using a large and diverse corpus of real-world networks, showing that scale-free structure is far from universal.
Scientific Breakthrough Enables Storage and Release of Mechanical Waves Without Energy Loss
Why economic orthodoxy is a dangerous ideology that is destabilising the planet
One problem with this idea that nature and culture are separate is that it has predisposed us to create exploitative cultures that degrade ecosystems everywhere. Exploitative and degenerative…
A ‘Brief’ History of Neural Nets and Deep Learning
The beginning of a story spanning half a century, about how we learned to make computers learn
No one knows who is patching System Shock 2
Stochastic Processes Analysis
One of the main application of Machine Learning is modelling stochastic processes. Some examples of stochastic processes used in Machine Learning are: Stochastic processes are part of our daily…
