Decision Model and Notation (DMN) google
The primary goal of DMN is to provide an industry standard modelling notation for decision management and business rules that is readily understandable by all business users: from the business analysts who need to create initial decision requirements and then more detailed decision models, to the technical developers responsible for automating the decisions in processes, and finally, to the business people who will manage and monitor those decisions. The submission has been designed to be complementary to and useable alongside the OMG Business Process Model & Notation (BPMN) standard and will ensure that decision models are interchangeable across organizations. …

Directional Statistics google
Directional statistics is the subdiscipline of statistics that deals with directions (unit vectors in Rn), axes (lines through the origin in Rn) or rotations in Rn. More generally, directional statistics deals with observations on compact Riemannian manifolds. The fact that 0 degrees and 360 degrees are identical angles, so that for example 180 degrees is not a sensible mean of 2 degrees and 358 degrees, provides one illustration that special statistical methods are required for the analysis of some types of data (in this case, angular data). Other examples of data that may be regarded as directional include statistics involving temporal periods (e.g. time of day, week, month, year, etc.), compass directions, dihedral angles in molecules, orientations, rotations and so on. …

Reservoir Computing google
Reservoir computing is a framework for computation like a neural network. Typically an input signal is fed into a fixed (random) dynamical system called reservoir and the dynamics of the reservoir map the input to a higher dimension. Then a simple readout mechanism is trained to read the state of the reservoir and map it to the desired output. The main benefit is that the training is performed only at the readout stage and the reservoir is fixed. Liquid-state machines and echo state networks are two major types of reservoir computing. …
