Satellites, Security, and Scandal: Understanding the Politics of Export Control
In the pre-dawn hours of 15 February 1996, a Chinese rocket carrying an Intelsat communications satellite tilted off its launch tower during take-off, flew into a hillside village a few miles from Xichang, China, and ...
An Endangered Species: The Science/Engineering Librarian
Library information school (LIS) students without science background often express fears and concerns to pursue a career in engineering librarianship. A successful transition from graduate student to practicing engineering ...
Self-Directed Learning in the Workplace
Rapid changes in workplace (e.g., technology, organizational structure) increase the complexity of work which, in turn, increases the demand for continual learning. Current training efforts, in which organizations sponsor ...
Magic Matter, the Computational Æther, and the Miner’s Canary
Several viewpoints are proposed with the aim of promoting further approaches to the numerical integration of Einstein's equations, especially its support of attempts to detect astrophysically significant gravitational ...

Taking into Account the Differences between Actively and Passively Acquired Data: The Case of Active Learning with Support Vector Machines for Imbalanced Datasets
(Association for Computational Linguistics, 2009-06)
Actively sampled data can have very different characteristics than passively sampled data. Therefore, it’s promising to investigate using different inference procedures during AL than are used during passive learning (PL). ...
