Roland Topor
Known as the “savage surrealist,” Roland Topor’s illustrations and cartoons were by turns absurd, funny and brutal. I’ve posted a few images from his “lighter” collection Les Masochistes for your viewing pleasure.

Annif - tool for automated subject indexing and classification
Feed Annif a controlled vocabulary (subject headings, thesaurus or classification) and existing metadata - Annif then knows how to assign subjects for new documents!

Annif is built upon a combination of existing natural language processing and machine learning tools including Maui, fastText and Gensim. It is designed to be multilingual and it can support any subject vocabulary (in SKOS or a simple TSV format). It can be used either via a command-line interface or a microservice-style REST API. It also comes with a mobile web app that can analyse physical documents such as printed books.

Averaging Principle and Shape Theorem for a Growth Model with Memory. (arXiv:1812.00726v1 [math.PR]) https://ift.tt/2KRT7xX

We present a general approach to study a class of random growth models in $n$-dimensional Euclidean space. These models are designed to capture basic growth features which are expected to manifest at the mesoscopic level for several classical self-interacting processes originally defined at the microscopic scale. It includes once-reinforced random walk with strong reinforcement, origin-excited random walk, and few others, for which the set of visited vertices is expected to form a "limiting shape". We prove an averaging principle that leads to such shape theorem. The limiting shape can be computed in terms of the invariant measure of an associated Markov chain.

What is web.dev?  |  web.dev
What is web.dev?
web.dev is the ultimate resource for developers of all backgrounds to learn, create, and solve on the web. It's meant to not only educate developers, but help them apply what they've learned to any site they work on, be it personal or business.

web.dev was borne of a belief that if we make high quality experiences easy to build, it will enable more meaningful engagement on the web—for users and developers alike. Simply put, we realized the only way the web gets better is if we help the people building it succeed.

And the web can be better.

Scott Kennedy - In the U.S.-China Dinner Episode, Trump Wins by a Hair | Center for Strategic and International Studies
The dinner and the preparations in the weeks leading up to it did not in any way change the contours of the debate or leave anyone with the impression that Beijing understands the depth of international concerns and is prepared to address them. As a result, the downward trajectory of the relationship will continue. The United States, as well as Japan and the European Union, will continue to move full speed ahead to expand investment restrictions and export controls that limit Chinese access to advanced technologies. Washington will likely take other steps in response to concerns about Chinese efforts to influence U.S. opinion, as well as develop a larger strategy in response to China’s growing military might and its activities in the South China Sea and elsewhere.

China’s case was not helped by its apparent offer to reconsider the Qualcomm-NXP deal. To the contrary, although that acquisition cannot be resuscitated, Xi’s comment reveals in plain sight that Chinese antitrust policy is inherently politicized, with the top leadership able to shape outcomes to suit their own needs regardless of the facts of any case. This new data point reinforces the impression China’s leaders are not stewards of a competitive market economy.
