In high school, I was encouraged to take vocational classes. That my dad drove a truck for a living was reason enough for me to take up a trade, like carpentry or automobile mechanics. Never mind that I wasn’t good with my hands. Initial classification starts from expert definitions specifying class allocation for players based on aggregated attributes of the temporal data. Based on these initial classifications, the optimisation process tries to find an improved classifier which produces the best possible compact classes of objects (players) for every time point in the temporal data. The compactness of the classes is measured by a cost function based on internal cluster indices like the Dunn Index, distance measures like Euclidean distance or statistically derived measures like standard deviation.

But it appears that Alphabet, Google parent company, recruited a small team of engineers to continue to work on it.Now the company has announced on Medium that it is making the the “Glass Enterprise Edition” available for sale.Read More”Workers in many fields, like manufacturing, logistics, field services, and healthcare find it useful to consult a wearable device for information and other resources while their hands are busy,” explained Jay Kothari, the leader of the project.”That why we spent the last two years working closely with a network of more than 30 expert partners to build customised software and business solutions for Glass for people in these fields.”The original Glass was launched as the “Explorer Edition” and required users to sign up to the program, pay a hefty fee, and help develop the project.
Twenty five years later, the debate over global warming is over. “Nature,” as Schneider puts it, “is cooperating with theory.” Now that the data are falling into place, and scientists have affirmed humans’ impact on climate, is the weather report poised for a 21st century makeover? Most Americans get their information about the weather and climate from TV meteorologists, who in turn provide forecasts to local newspapers. So the weather report would be a fitting, if not exclusive, place to inform the global warming discussion.
