Bookmarks for March 12th through March 23rd

These are my links for March 12th through March 23rd:

  • Stanford Large Network Data Sets – Like it says.
  • Google Translate vs. the Humans – NYTimes.com – EVERYBODY has his own tale of terrible translation to tell — an incomprehensible restaurant menu in Croatia, a comically illiterate warning sign on a French beach. “Human-engineered” translation is just as inadequate in more important domains. In our courts and hospitals, in the military and security services, underpaid and overworked translators make muddles out of millions of vital interactions. Machine translation can certainly help in these cases. Its legendary bloopers are often no worse than the errors made by hard-pressed humans.
  • Introduction to Finite Element Methods (ASEN 5007) Course Material – Finite Element modeling is presented in two ways: 1) Breakdown of structural system into components (elements) and reconstruction by the assembly process, and 2) Numerical approximation of a Boundary Value Problem by Ritz-Galerkin discretization with functions of local support.
  • Introduction to High-Performance Computing with R.pdf (application/pdf Object) – Pdf slide introduction to R.
