I'm very pleased to share that my recent work with the wonderful @Becca_Keogh_PhD, Sarah Robuck, and @ProfJoelPearson on episodic autobiographical #memory and #imagination in #aphantasia is out now in Cognition (authors.elsevier.com/a/1fHsW2Hx2pisH).
Thread below!
1/ What do you see in your mind’s eye when you remember the places you’ve been and the things you've experienced in your life? That first time at the beach, that summer picnic in the park- can you conjure those memories back again? What happens when you try to imagine the future?
2/ Episodic memory and future prospection are functionally similar: both are everyday cognitive processes involving the reconstructive simulation of events and scenes, typically accompanied by anecdotally vivid online sensory replay (or 'preplay') in the form of visual imagery.

A long 🧵with some thoughts/comments on it 1/x
The first chapter provides a very good overview on the #semiconductor industry/value chain, elaborating also on important players/ market shares.

Basically, they could have used also the study by @snv_berlin / @JPKleinhans on that, but anyway, it is quite well analysed. 2/x
imho every journalist that want to cover a #semiconductor topic should easily be able to comment/edit on this section. If someone is new on this field, it is a very good initial read to understand the sector. 3/x

In SC2, the S1 subunit "fwees off" into plasma space like a rocket booster upon shuttle launch.

#Highlights2021 for me: our #survey on efficient processing of #sparse and compressed tensors of #ML/#DNN models on #hardware accelerators published in @ProceedingsIEEE.
Paper: dx.doi.org/10.1109/JPROC.…
arXiv: arxiv.org/abs/2007.00864
RT/sharing appreciated. 🧵
Context: Tensors of ML/DNN are compressed by leveraging #sparsity, #quantization, shape reduction. We summarize several such sources of sparsity & compression (§3). Sparsity is induced in structure while pruning & it is unstructured inherently for various applications or sources. Various sources induce stru...Common structures of sparsi...
Likewise, leveraging value similarity or approximate operations could yield irregularity in processing. Also, techniques for size-reduction make tensors asymmetric-shaped. Hence, special mechanisms can be required for efficient processing of sparse and irregular computations.

Do children produce different types of #antibodies(Abs) against #SARSCoV2 than adults? 1/ Image
Yes, children mostly produced Abs aimed at #Spike protein, which the virus uses to enter cells. Adults generate similar Abs, but also develop Abs against the #Nucleocapsid protein, which is essential for viral replication 2/

pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33154590/
#Nucleocapsid protein is typically released in significant quantities only when a virus is widespread in the body.
What does it mean? The kids lacked nucleocapsid-specific Abs, which suggests that they aren’t experiencing widespread infection. 3/

Is #caffeinated #soda bad for children's #brain development? If so, which specific intellectual capacity is affected? It is a question that many parents and caregivers are asking daily but there is no clear guideline 1/n

Some soda contains #caffeine (Coca Cola, Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper, etc). The physical side effects of caffeinated soda such as obesity have been well documented and the short-term effects of caffeine consumption (mostly in adults) are well known. 3/n
