07/18/18: AI Maps Brain Neurons

Automated reconstruction that maps the brain’s neurons:
From Google: "Automated reconstruction of a portion of zebra finch brain. Colors denote distinct objects in the segmentation that was automatically generated using a flood-filling network, a new approach to connectomic reconstruction developed by Google AI in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute".

In the Abstract found via we read:
(...) "Reconstruction of neural circuits from volume electron microscopy data requires the tracing of cells in their entirety, including all their neurites. Automated approaches have been developed for tracing, but their error rates are too high to generate reliable circuit diagrams without extensive human proofreading. We present flood-filling networks, a method for automated segmentation that, similar to most previous efforts, uses convolutional neural networks, but contains in addition a recurrent pathway that allows the iterative optimization and extension of indivi…

Overview:What Is Bitcoin Cash? You've most likely heard of Bitcoin but you may not have heard of Bitcoin Cash as it is a younger sibling to the original Bitcoin that has not been around as long. In this article we'll explain how and why Bitcoin Cash was created and the differences between it and Bitcoin. Why Was Bitcoin Cash Created? Bitcoin is the world's most popular, longstanding, and stable cryptocurrency. It's been nine years since it launched and it only goes from strength to strength. Despite its strengths, it definitely has its flaws and one of those flaws has always been its ability to scale. When it was created, the size of block transactions was limited to only 1 MB in order to prevent spam and other maliciou…

Blockchain Basics

Today we are looking at how Blockchain is changing and has change the Web. To start let us examine Blockchain adapted from IronChain Capital's Resource Center - which has lots of great content like: "What is Bitcoin", "What is Ripple", and much more in a first rate Cryptocurrency Guide.
Note: You will also find on our weekly Internet news site a PDF about Bitcoin in Asia and other Cryptocurrency topics.
Blockchain - Overview Blockchain first came into the public eye as the technology on which Bitcoin is run. However, it is not a single computer program but rather a technology that can be used for many different applications. It is the basis on which all cryptocurrencies are run but it has the potential to power many other types of activities and exchanges from voting to property sales. It is a way to decentralize commerce and put it into the hands of the people.
How Does It Work? In the simplest terms, it is a type of ledger. Imagine an old school ba…
