Introducing Queues — Creating a Pipeline in the Cloud | PiCloud BlogIntroducing Queues — Creating a Pipeline in the Cloud | PiCloud Blog: "While a distributed queue data structure with push, pop, and ack capabilities is provided, the key benefit is the ability to attach a handler to a queue for scalable processing of a queue’s messages. The handler in turn can feed its output messages to other queues."
Using Facades to Decouple API Integrations | CloudWork BlogCloudWork BlogUsing Facades to Decouple API Integrations | CloudWork BlogCloudWork Blog: "There’s a better way to keep API calls up-to-date. By writing a Façade with the single responsibility of interacting with the external Web service, you can defend your code from external changes. Now, whenever the API changes, all you have to do is update your Façade. Your internal application code will remain untouched."
Psychomotor vigilance task - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaPsychomotor vigilance task - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The psychomotor vigilance task (PVT) is a sustained-attention, reaction-timed task that measures the speed with which subjects respond to a visual stimulus. Research indicates increased sleep debt or sleep deficit correlates with deteriorated alertness, slower problem-solving, declined psycho-motor skills, and increased rate of false responding. The PVT was championed by David F. Dinges and popularized by its ease of scoring, simple metrics, and convergent validity. However, it was shown that motivation can counteract the detrimental effects of sleep loss for up to 36 hours."
Evaluation measures of multiple sequen... [J Comput Biol. 2000 Feb-Apr] - PubMed - NCBIEvaluation measures of multiple sequen... [J Comput Biol. 2000 Feb-Apr] - PubMed - NCBI: "Multiple sequence alignments (MSAs) are frequently used in the study of families of protein sequences or DNA/RNA sequences. They are a fundamental tool for the understanding of the structure, functionality and, ultimately, the evolution of proteins. A new algorithm, the Circular Sum (CS) method, is presented for formally evaluating the quality of an MSA. It is based on the use of a solution to the Traveling Salesman Problem, which identifies a circular tour through an evolutionary tree connecting the sequences in a protein family. "

Finite automata and string matchingFinite automata and string matching: "The start and accept states are obvious: they are just the 0- and m-character prefixes. So the only thing we need to decide is what the transition table should look like. If we've just seen "...nan", and see another character "x", what state should we go to? Clearly, if x is the next character in the match (here "o"), we should go to the next longer prefix (here "nano"). And clearly, once we've seen a complete match, we just stay in that state. But suppose we see a different character, such as "a"? That means that the string so far looks like "...nana". The longest partial match we could be in is just "na". So from state "nan", we should draw an arrow labeled "a" to state "na". Note that "na" is a prefix of "nano" (so it's a state) and a suffix of "nana" (so it's a partial match consistent with what we've just seen)."
Finite automata and string matchingFinite automata and string matching: "The KMP algorithm works by turning the pattern it's given into a machine, and then running the machine. The hard part of KMP is finding the machine.
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
