Machine learning techniques have the potential of alleviating the complexity of knowledge acquisition. This book presents today’s state and development tendencies of machine learning. It is a multi-author book. Taking into account the large amount of knowledge about machine learning and practice presented in the book, it is divided into three major parts: Introduction, Machine Learning Theory and Applications. Part I focuses on the introduction to machine learning.
(BQ) Part 1 book "Financial statement analysis" has contents: The adversarial nature of financial reporting, the balance sheet, the income statement, the statement of cash flows, what is profit, revenue recognition, revenue recognition, the reliability of disclosures and audits, the applications and limitations of EBITDA,...and other contents.
This paper presents a method for extracting distinctive invariant features from
images that can be used to perform reliable matching between different views of
an object or scene. The features are invariant to image scale and rotation, and
are shown to provide robust matching across a a substantial range of affine distortion,
change in 3D viewpoint, addition of noise, and change in illumination.
The features are highly distinctive, in the sense that a single feature can be correctly
matched with high probability against a large database of features from
Isolated blunt abdominal trauma (BAT) represents about 5% of annual trauma mortality
from blunt trauma. As part of multiple-site injury (polytrauma), BAT contributes another
15% of trauma mortality. In the abdominal trauma, the best exploration strategy is one that
leads most quickly and reliably in the diagnosis of surgical injury. This strategy must be
established based on hemodynamic status and clinical guidance but should never delay a
System Protection and Control Performance Improvement Initiative –aka SPI
Launched April 24, 2009
NERC Board recognition of the importance of system protection to reliability
Goal: Improve BES reliability
Purpose: Improve the performance of power system Protection Systems through fostering technical excellence in protection and control system design, coordination, and practices.
Fault diagnosis technology is a synthetic technology, which relates to several subjects, such as
modern control theory, reliability theory, mathematical statistics, fussy set theory, information
handling, pattern recognition and artificial intelligence.
The United States is the first study to carry out fault diagnosis countries.
Despite our best intentions, most of what constitutes modern medical
imaging practice is based on habit, anecdotes, and scientific writings that
are too often fraught with biases. Best estimates suggest that only around
30% of what constitutes “imaging knowledge” is substantiated by reliable
scientific inquiry. This poses problems for clinicians and radiologists,
because inevitably, much of what we do for patients ends up being inefficient,
inefficacious, or occasionally even harmful.
There are changes in the clinical presentation of the co-infected patient as compared to when each infection is
present individually. There may be different symptoms and atypical signs. There may be decreased reliability of
standard diagnostic tests, and most importantly, there is recognition that chronic, persistent forms of each of
these infections do indeed exist. As time goes by, I am convinced that even more pathogens will be found.
Adequate facilities and resources must be available to supply proper housing, a consistent,
appropriate, and reliable source of feed and water, treatment for injured or sick birds, and
everything else necessary to ensure the well-being of the animals. Financial costs should not be
considered a reason for neglecting a bird obviously in distress or for failing to secure prompt and
appropriate medical treatment or other care when necessary.
This code has been prepared with a recognition of current practices.
This paper describes our current research on the properties of derivational affixation in English. Our research arises from a more general research project, the Lexical Systems project at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research laboratories, the goal for which is to build a variety of computerized dictionary systems for use both by people and by computer programs. An important sub-goal is to build reliable and robust word recognition mechanisms for these dictionaries.
