NASA is Using Intel’s Deep Learning to Find Better Landing Sites on the Moon

People have already seen tons of machine learning and neural network applications, but recently NASA announced that their Frontier Development Laboratory (FDL) would cooperate with Intel to apply deep learning for space exploration. One of the recent accomplishments is the application to build a moon map. Scientists at Intel obtained about 200 TB of data […]

Isometry

Isometry From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia For the mechanical engineering and architecture usage, see isometric projection. For isometry in differential geometry, seeisometry (Riemannian geometry). In mathematics, an isometry is a distance-preserving map between metric spaces. Geometric figures which can be related by an isometry are called congruent. Isometries are often used in constructions where one space is embedded in another space. For instance, the completion of a metric space M involves an isometry […]

New Microbe Found in Two Distant Clean Rooms

November 06, 2013 A rare, recently discovered microbe that survives on very little to eat has been found in two places on Earth: spacecraft clean rooms in Florida and South America. Microbiologists often do thorough surveys of bacteria and other microbes in spacecraft clean rooms. Fewer microbes live there than in almost any other environment […]

NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft at the far reaches of our solar system

PASADENA, Calif. — NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft has entered a new region at the far reaches of our solar system that scientists feel is the final area the spacecraft has to cross before reaching interstellar space. Scientists refer to this new region as a magnetic highway for charged particles because our sun’s magnetic field lines […]

Inequalities

Cauchy–Schwarz inequality From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In mathematics, the Cauchy–Schwarz inequality (also known as the Bunyakovsky inequality, the Schwarz inequality, or theCauchy–Bunyakovsky–Schwarz inequality), is a useful inequality encountered in many different settings, such as linear algebra,analysis, in probability theory, and other areas. It is a specific case of Hölder’s inequality. The inequality for sums was published by Augustin-Louis Cauchy (1821), while the […]
