Living Longer – Learning from an Ultimate Question of Life

Life expectancy was driven mainly by improvements in sanitation, housing, and education, causing a steady decline in early and mid-life mortality, which was chiefly due to infections. This trend continued with the development of vaccines and then antibiotics. By the latter half of the twentieth century, there was little room for further reduction in early and mid-life mortality.

Guney Digital Art – TSP Path Algorithm

The Original Photo of Guney Candan Back ground removed Thanks to http://www.evilmadscientist.com/ below is the Voronoi Diagram calculated by StippleGen_2   Then after 20 iterations with 3000 dots ductBelow is the TSP path calculated   The final V plated end product ! One hand drawing added. This time no software generated view I tried to converting to SVG file

Traveling Salesman Problem and Digital Art

Traveling salesman problem: Wikipedia: “The travelling salesman problem (TSP) asks the following question: Given a list of cities and the distances between each pair of cities, what is the shortest possible route that visits each city exactly once and returns to the origin city? It is an NP-hard problem in combinatorial optimization, important in operations research and theoretical computer science.”   In the mathematics literature, it appears that the first mention of the TSP was…

Germany 7 Brazil 1 – How does Real Time Sport Analytics Change Football?

I Just wanted to high light the great technology behind such a score. 1- For ages we had been depending on our Coaches to coach the team and bring up the performance of 11 players in over the football field. 2- Later on sports world discovered the “Money ball” facts. Some key data about the players were revealing interesting facts about the player performance and helped sports experts understand and build new approach based on…

50 Times a Second measure and correct: Quad copters and Algorithms

http://ugurcandan.com/ucan-robotlar-tenis-oynuyor/ I had previously blog entries about quadcopters and Tenis. But I have noticed the new TED Talk that every science or math’s or physics fan should listen to. I feel like building one myself? Iam just considering if I should or not . Mean while it is interesting to note the details about the platform. 50 miliseconds (that means 20 times a second) the systems makes calculations and a new iteration, taking into consideration…

Coca-Cola Adjust Taste of Orange Juice by Secret Algorithm (Black Book)

Don’t let the name fool you. Coca-Cola’s Simply Orange juice is anything but pick, squeeze, and pour. That cold glass of 100 percent liquid sunshine on the breakfast table is the product of a sophisticated industrial juice complex. Satellite imagery, complicated data algorithms, even a juice pipeline are all part of the recipe. “You take Mother Nature and standardize it,” says Jim Horrisberger, director of procurement at Coke’s huge Auburndale (Fla.) juice packaging plant. “Mother…

Algorithms and Sex Appeal: Could algorithms work for Sex Appeal? Can you look more sexy if you know some Mathematics?

From Wikipedia: an algorithm is an effective method expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Algorithms are used for calculation, data processing, and automated reasoning. In simple words an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Now let’s analyze OkCupid.com it is a famous web site. On 2-Feb-2011 Match.com had acquired OkCupid for \$50 million in cash. Many users expressed distress, worrying that they would now have to pay for…
