Summary

The “profusely illustrated” yearly military reference that features world fleet reviews, significant ship developments, and technological advancements (Ships Monthly).   Now in its seventh year, this annual has established an international reputation as an authoritative but affordable summary of all that has happened in the naval world in the previous twelve months. It combines regional surveys with one-off major articles on noteworthy new ships and other important developments. Besides the latest warship projects, it also looks at wider issues of importance to navies, such as aviation and electronics, and calls on expertise from around the globe to give a balanced picture of what is going on and to interpret its significance.   The 2015 edition looks in detail at the French Navy and the Bangladesh and Myanmar navies, while significant ships include the Montford Point class mobile landing platforms, the Samuel Beckett offshore patrol vessels, and the Skjold class fast attack craft. There are technological reviews dealing with naval aviation by David Hobbs, and current mine warfare developments by Norman Friedman, while warship recycling is discussed by Ian Buxton.   Intended to make interesting reading as well as providing authoritative reference, there is a strong visual emphasis, including specially commissioned drawings and the most up-to-date photographs and artists’ impressions. For anyone with an interest in contemporary naval affairs, whether an enthusiast or a defense professional, this annual has become required reading.
Available since: 11/05/2014.

    A freewheeling journey through midcentury America as art, literature, and the interstate highway system intersect.   In 1943, Peggy Guggenheim commissioned a mural from Jackson Pollock to hang in the entryway of her Manhattan townhouse. It was the largest Pollock canvas she would ever own, and four years later she gave it to a small Midwestern institution with no place to put it. When the original scroll of On the Road goes on tour across the country, it lands at the same Iowa museum housing Peggy’s Pollock—revitalizing Riley Hanick’s adolescent fascination with the author.   Alongside these two narrative threads, Hanick revisits Dwight D. Eisenhower’s quest to build America’s first interstate highway system. When catastrophic rains flood the Iowa highways, they also threaten the museum and its precious mural. In Three Kinds of Motion, his razor-sharp, funny, and intensely vulnerable book-length essay, Hanick moves deftly between his three subjects, and delivers a story with breathtaking ingenuity.   “He gravitates toward the unexpected and the poignant. We see Eisenhower painting, Kerouac confined to a naval hospital after running naked across a drill field, and Pollock babysitting for the offspring of his mentor, Thomas Hart Benton. Hanick [creates] arresting juxtapositions in the mode of such kindred innovative essayists as John D’Agata, Ander Monson, and Lia Purpura.” —Booklist   “Like a great conversationalist, Hanick paints a generous canvas, and I rode the length of this powerful book much like I first experienced the American interstate: songs on the stereo, windows down, and the bittersweet sense that youth is fleeting. Three Kinds of Motion holds open a wild and beautiful journey, not to be missed.” —Thalia Field

    Deep learning is an artificial intelligence technology that enables computer vision, speech recognition in mobile phones, machine translation, AI games, driverless cars, and other applications. When we use consumer products from Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Apple, or Baidu, we are often interacting with a deep learning system. In this volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series, computer scientist John Kelleher offers an accessible and concise but comprehensive introduction to the fundamental technology at the heart of the artificial intelligence revolution. 
     
    Kelleher explains some of the basic concepts in deep learning, presents a history of advances in the field, and discusses the current state of the art. He describes the most important deep learning architectures, including autoencoders, recurrent neural networks, and long short-term networks, as well as such recent developments as Generative Adversarial Networks and capsule networks. He also provides a comprehensive introduction to the two fundamental algorithms in deep learning: gradient descent and backpropagation. Finally, Kelleher considers the future of deep learning-major trends, possible developments, and significant challenges.

    Learn some incredible facts and conclusions on longevity, the paranormal, UFOs and Aliens, our Universe, Spirituality, Ancient Giants, Atlantis, and more.We grow up and absorb many limits on our consciousness and thinking. We internalize these beliefs and think this is the way the world works. In school from primary to secondary to universities we are also taught what our teachers and science say is the truth.But facts about our world which don’t fit are often ignored. We are not taught to think for ourselves. We are taught to accept what others have determined in established religion, science, politics, and more.When we open up the limits on our minds and spirits we can learn many new things we never thought about previously. We can also learn to think “outside of the box” to see alternative views of the world and conceive of ideas which might not be thought of otherwise.To get to the next plateau in our civilization we need to remove these limits on our minds and spirits, and not reject facts out hand which don’t fit established paradigms. In this book we explore the current limits we have, some examples of thinking outside of the box, and how to start living in a new way and thinking for ourselves. We will also explore some startling conclusions I’ve made about the world and our universe from my research and books on many different subjects.
