Those crazy American evangelicals are at it again. Always trying to tell everybody else what to do, they've now decided to save Chinese teenagers from becoming sinners. Yes, it's true, the abstinence program heads to Bejing! Well, Susie has a few words to say about all this. It seems that the group Focus on the Family is behind attempts to convert the entire planet to saying "just say no" to sex before wedlock. Although it hasn't had much luck in the U.S., they continue to push the abstinence agenda in other countries. Whatever happened to sex ed and learning how to have safe sex and use condoms? Next, in our "Tell Me Your Sex Story" segment, Susie continues to ask all those nosy, personal questions to a willing listener. This week "Mary" gets into the sexual confession booth and begins by telling Susie all about her early sex life. She remembers her first orgasm and talks about how she felt as a teenager that she masturbated too much. "Never!" says Susie. They also talk about Mary's desire to be as uninhibited with her husband as she is in her fantasy life. Then, in our "Try This at Home" mailbag, Susie gets a letter from a battered husband who is white-knuckling it and needs some real advice. "Susie, where do I go from here? I feel like I need some professional help to end this nightmare." Have a question? You can call Susie's hotline at 831-480-5110. And you can send your confidential questions - plus requests for free samples and blog banners! - to susie@susiebright.com.

Chinese Handwriting Recognition: An Algorithmic...
62,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Designing machines that can read handwriting like human beings has been an ambitious goal for more than half a century, driving talented researchers to explore diverse approaches. Obstacles have often been encountered that at first appeared insurmountable but were indeed overcome before long. Yet some open issues remain to be solved. As an indispensable branch, Chinese handwriting recognition has been termed as one of the most difficult Pattern Recognition tasks. Chinese handwriting recognition poses its own unique challenges, such as huge variations in strokes, diversity of writing styles, and a large set of confusable categories. With ever-increasing training data, researchers have pursued elaborate algorithms to discern characters from different categories and compensate for the sample variations within the same category. As a result, Chinese handwriting recognition has evolved substantially and amazing achievements can be seen. This book introduces integral algorithms used in Chinese handwriting recognition and the applications of Chinese handwriting recogniers. The first part of the book covers both widespread canonical algorithms to a reliable recognizer and newly developed scalable methods in Chinese handwriting recognition. The recognition of Chinese handwritten text is presented systematically, including instructive guidelines for collecting samples, novel recognition paradigms, distributed discriminative learning of appearance models and distributed estimation of contextual models for large categories, in addition to celebrated methods, e.g. Gradient features, MQDF and HMMs. In the second part of this book, endeavors are made to create a friendlier human-machine interface through application of Chinese handwriting recognition. Four scenarios are exemplified: grid-assisted input, shortest moving input, handwritten micro-blog, and instant handwriting messenger. All the while, the book moves from basic to more complex approaches, also providing a list for further reading with literature comments.

AI Weiwei's Blog: Writings, Interviews, and Dig...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 2006, even though he could barely type, China's most famous artist started blogging. For more than three years, Ai Weiwei turned out a steady stream of scathing social commentary, criticism of government policy, thoughts on art and architecture, and autobiographical writings. He wrote about the Sichuan earthquake (and posted a list of the schoolchildren who died because of the governments 'tofu-dregs engineering'), reminisced about Andy Warhol and the East Village art scene, described the irony of being investigated for 'fraud' by the Ministry of Public Security, made a modest proposal for tax collection. Then, on June 1, 2009, Chinese authorities shut down the blog. This book offers a collection of Ai's online writings translated into English--the most complete, public documentation of the original Chinese blog available in any language.
