  • Barbara and Steve spent the entire month of February putting together the schedule and plans for the CSS. Even though Barbara was the project manager, she and Steve worked together as peers. As a team, they could brainstorm and double-check each other’s work. They had worked together before and had an excellent relationship—one based on mutual respect and trust. They could be candid and knew how to work through disagreements as well as how to come to consensus on important issues. Barbara also knew that the work Steve produced was always well thought out and very professionally done.

  • Reputation systems impact your life every day, even when you don’t realize it. You need reputation to get through life efficiently, because reputation helps you make sound judgments in the absence of any better information. Reputation is even more important on the Web, which has trillions of pages to sort through—each one competing for your attention. Without reputation systems for things like search rankings, ratings and reviews, and spam filters, the Web would have become unusable years ago....

  • As I am finishing this book, Science magazine is running a special issue about the sequencing of the macaque genome. It turns out that macaques share about 93 percent of their genes with us, humans. Previously it has been already reported that chimpanzees share about 96 percent of their genes with us. Yes, the macaque is our common ancestor, and it might be expected that, together with the chimps, we continued with our natural selection some 23 million years ago until, some 6 million years ago, we departed from the chimps to continue our further search for better adaptation.

  • Given the growing complexity of tasks that spoken dialogue systems are trying to handle, Reinforcement Learning (RL) has been increasingly used as a way of automatically learning the best policy for a system to make. While most work has focused on generating better policies for a dialogue manager, very little work has been done in using RL to construct a better dialogue state. This paper presents a RL approach for determining what dialogue features are important to a spoken dialogue tutoring system. ...

  • My journey to learn and better understand Linux began over a decade ago, back in 1998. I had just installed my first Linux distribution and had quickly become intrigued with the whole concept and philosophy behind Linux. There are always many ways to accomplish a single task. The same can be said about Linux distributions. A great many have existed over the years. Some still exist, some have morphed into something else, yet others have been relegated to our memories.

  • Since the early 1970s, a quiet revolution – microfinance – has been sweeping the globe. Poverty can now, in part, be redefined as a lack of access to reliable, affordable financial services that enables people to build economic security and improve their lives. Microfinance, which has evolved in an array of formats, from regulated banks to Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSlAs), has made life better for millions, first through access to credit, but increasingly through savings, insurance and pension schemes as well.

  • When a computer software succeeds—when it meets the needs of the people who use it, when it performs flawlessly over a long period of time, when it is easy to modify and even easier to use—it can and does change things for the better. But when software fails—when its users are dissatisfied, when it is error prone, when it is difficult to change and even harder to use—bad things can and do happen. We all want to build software that makes things better, avoiding the bad things that lurk in the shadow of failed efforts.

  • A traditional application built around poll will have a single structure containing all active descriptors, which is passed to the kernel every time the applications goes through the central event loop. A kqueue-aware applica- tion will need to notify the kernel of any changes to the list of active descriptors, instead of passing in the entire list. This can be done either by calling kevent() for each update to the active descriptor list, or by building up a list of descriptor changes and then passing this list to the kernel the next time the event loop is called.

  • Countries at all levels of income have achieved great advances in health. Although an unaccepta- bly high proportion of children in the developing world—one in ten—die before reaching age 5, this number is less than half that of 1960. Declines in poverty have allowed households to increase con- sumption of the food, clean water, and shelter nec- essary for good health.

  • In a decentralized-decisions economy under uncertainty, the financial system can be seen as the complex of institutions, infrastructure, and instruments that the society adopts to minimize the costs of transacting promises under agents’ incomplete trust and limited information. Building on a microeconomic, general equilibrium model that portrays such fundamental function of finance, this study analytically shows that, in line with recent empirical evidence, the development of financial infrastructure stimulates larger and more efficient capital industrial accumulation.
