Fader Network google
This paper introduces a new encoder-decoder architecture that is trained to reconstruct images by disentangling the salient information of the image and the values of attributes directly in the latent space. As a result, after training, our model can generate different realistic versions of an input image by varying the attribute values. By using continuous attribute values, we can choose how much a specific attribute is perceivable in the generated image. This property could allow for applications where users can modify an image using sliding knobs, like faders on a mixing console, to change the facial expression of a portrait, or to update the color of some objects. Compared to the state-of-the-art which mostly relies on training adversarial networks in pixel space by altering attribute values at train time, our approach results in much simpler training schemes and nicely scales to multiple attributes. We present evidence that our model can significantly change the perceived value of the attributes while preserving the naturalness of images. …

Deep Ritz Method google
We propose a deep learning based method, the Deep Ritz Method, for numerically solving variational problems, particularly the ones that arise from partial differential equations. The Deep Ritz method is naturally nonlinear, naturally adaptive and has the potential to work in rather high dimensions. The framework is quite simple and fits well with the stochastic gradient descent method used in deep learning. We illustrate the method on several problems including some eigenvalue problems. …

rApache google
rApache is a project supporting web application development using the R statistical language and environment and the Apache web server. The current software distribution runs on UNIX/Linux and Mac OS X operating systems. Apache servers with threaded Multi-Processing Modules are now supported, but the the Apache Prefork Multi-Processing Module is still recommended (refer to the Multi-Processing Modules chapter from Apache for more about this). The rApache software distribution provides the Apache module named mod_R that embeds the R interpreter inside the web server. It also comes bundled with libapreq, an Apache module for manipulating client request data. Together, they provide the glue to transform R into a server-side scripting environment. Another important project that’s not bundled with rApache, but plays an important role in server-side scripting, is the R package brew (also available on CRAN). It implements a templating framework for report generation, and it’s perfect for generating HTML on the fly. it’s syntax is similar to PHP, Ruby’s erb module, Java Server Pages, and Python’s psp module. brew can be used stand-alone as well, so it’s not part of the distribution.
