The first edition of Global Logistics and Distribution Planning: Strategies for
Management appeared in 1988. Since then the whole field of logistics has

supply chain as ‘the series of activities and organizations that materials –
both tangible and intangible – move through on their journeys from
initial suppliers to final customers’ (Waters, 2009).
Global logistics is defined as the design
and management of a system that directs
and controls the flows of materials into,

As a result of the gloomy economic climate in Europe brought about by the
ongoing crisis affecting all enterprises (particularly SMEs) in France, the French
government has recently decided to create different poles of innovation and
research associated to the activities of enterprises. The objective is to propose new
ideas for helping these enterprises to be more efficient and able to resist the threat
to their existence from globalisation.
One of the difficulties of these enterprises is that they find it difficult to penetrate
the European market and export their products.

The global environment that charac-
terises the business world highlights
the importance of developing strate-
gies that go beyond the geographical
boundaries of one country. Wage-rate
differentials, expanding foreign mar-
kets and improved transportation
break down barriers of time and
space between countries and force the
logistics function to take on a global
dimension. Global logistics is the
response to the increasing integration
of international markets as firms try
to remain competitive.

This lecture describes modular ways of formulating and learning distributed representations of data. The objective is for you to learn: How to specify models such as logistic regression in layers; how to formulate layers and loss criterions; how well formulated local rules results in correct global rules; how back-propagation works; how this manifests itself in Torch.

Phenotypic characterization activities are technically and logistically challenging. Ensur-
ing that they are well targeted (collect data that are important to the country’s priority
AnGR- and livestock-development activities) and are carried out in an efficient and cost-
effective manner requires thorough planning and careful implementation. Valid compari-
sons among livestock breeds or populations, whether nationally or internationally, require
the development and use of standard practices and formats for describing their character-
Aligning sentences belonging to comparable monolingual corpora has been suggested as a ﬁrst step towards training text rewriting algorithms, for tasks such as summarization or paraphrasing. We present here a new monolingual sentence alignment algorithm, combining a sentence-based TF*IDF score, turned into a probability distribution using logistic regression, with a global alignment dynamic programming algorithm. Our approach provides a simpler and more robust solution achieving a substantial improvement in accuracy over existing systems. ...
