Neural Networks III: NETtalk, the Ising Model and Hopfield Networks, and Attractor Dynamics

http://metadatta.wordpress.com [ {metadatta}] While a lot of the development can be very technical, I’m trying to make these posts accessible to most people with a general interest in biophysics, neural networks or computational neuroscience. This means that I have to gloss over a lot of interesting details, including a lot of fun derivations, but that’s ok - for one thing, I don’t know how to easily incorporate equations into these posts (nor do I have the time to).

"You are the platform"

http://sentientdevelopments.blogspot.com [Sentient Developments] A number of years ago Norton had a magnet implanted in the tip of one of her fingers -- an idea that was pioneered by the likes of Jesse Jarrell and Steve Haworth. She started to sense electro-magnetic fields, she could feel her laptop's hard drive spinning, she could could tell if an electrical cord was live, and feel running motors and security devices.

Last week I got pinged by Azi Paybarah, a fellow political journo-blogger for New York Observer's The Politicker. I guess Azi needed to check out how babelicious I am and was perusing my (soon to be updated) bio at lizasabater.com. To his horror, he found this : Yes, that's a John McCain ad right next my mug.
