Unsupervised learning of linguistic structures Bill Weaver, Ph.D. "I brang it to school yesterday" is the most recent conversation starter with our fourth-grader. Like many parents, I would like to have the phrase "Use brought; 'brang' isn't a word" emblazoned on a shirt so I can simply point to it several times a day. My correction is always followed by the retort "But it's 'ring-rang-rung' and bring sounds like ring." Explaining 'there are...
Normally, I would avoid use of the word "programming" in a title for fear of immediately losing my audience but, as my readers seem to be mostly chemists and engineers, I may not have so much to fear (I think). This month's column is a review of a really nice introductory text on programming with the Mathematica language.
The GrapherSix developers’ aim was to allow the user to produce quick and easy graphs by merely opening a file and having the program select reasonable values for the axes, spacing and plot symbols, and then automatically produce a graph. This they have done. Most of the choices can be modified at the user’s discretion. Advanced automation features are available through a built-in scripter, and the results exported in a variety of formats.
Sometime in 1998, Arlo Rose started speculating about creating an application that could skin any type of data you wanted to display on your computer's desktop. Working with Perry Clarke, this concept found concrete expression as Konfabulator 1.0 for the Macintosh in 2003. They continued to work on expanding the concept until, working with Ed Voas, they released Konfabulator 1.8, which could run the same micro-applications
A look at new tools that may catalyze lab informatics Randy C. Hice New technology is a narcotic to me, and every few months I get the shakes if some glistening new toy isn’t rolling around in my sweaty palms. Lately, I’ve been lusting after GPS units that can travel with me to stem the withdrawal symptoms I experience when leaving my car at the airport and having to resort to the car rental maps that compress entire cities into six-inch squares, and...
Hostile takeover without the paperwork Randy C. Hice The plan was hatched out of boredom, pure and simple, and we pondered the legal ramifications warily. Two conspirators and I crouched under the grandstands. A few feet above, 1,000 spectators huddled, eyeing the pool where, years earlier, the 1960 U.S. Olympic Trials had been conducted. Since those days, the pool had fallen on harsh times. Leaks caused fresh water to be required at such a rate
