High Performance but … many moving parts that need to work together correctly.
Pyrenn Levenberg-Marquardt (LM) Neural Network Training Algorithm as an Alternative to Matlab's LM Training Algorithm
First – this isn’t an article bashing Matlab – on the contrary, I’ve used and depended on Matlab as one of my many engineering tools my entire career. However, Matlab is not free and it’s not cheap as the commercial cost for Matlab is around $2,000 and $1,000 for the Deep Learning (used to be… Read more
It was in September of 2001 that I was on leave-without-pay from my job at Northrop-Grumman, my wife was on doctor-ordered bed rest because our 3rd son was trying to “arrive early” (and we had two other toddler sons, ages 4 and 2), and I was working 12+ hours a day in my garage on… Read more
Hands-On Introduction and Tutorial for Setting up and Running NASA's First-Class Java WorldWind Earth Model Simulation
What Is It? What is WorldWind? Well let me quote NASA’s site directly: WorldWind is an open source virtual globe API. WorldWind allows developers to quickly and easily create interactive visualizations of 3D globe, map and geographical information. Organizations around the world use WorldWind to monitor weather patterns, visualize cities and terrain, track vehicle movement,… Read more
This article focuses on two types of integrators for simulating the motion of an object in Matlab (or Octave). Videos and downloadable source code are at the end of this article. Note that a free alternative to Matlab, called Octave, can also be used to run the software and this is covered here and in… Read more
This is my first post – nothing exciting – probably more of a rant. I used Microsoft’s Visual Studio (VS) for about a year to add modules to several C++ projects that involved 1553 communications protocol. Prior to that I’d mainly coded C++ using NetBeans as the IDE with the Cygwin GNU compiler – both… Read more
Seriously though – one has to be really into it in order to handle the frustrations associated with learning a new coding language, debugging somebody’s else code, debugging one’s own code that’s been dormant for 6 months, etc. In the past procedural programming was all I knew (consider that I graduated from Auburn University in… Read more
