algorithms | April 17, 2014For a long time, reciprocal links have remained at the forefront of most inbound linking strategies. This is going to have to change. Google now discounts all reciprocal links. The algorithm has been altered to identify the exchange of links by two parties for the purpose of increasing their number of inbound links. The concept of reciprocalOwned & Powered By #1 Vinayak Infosoft ::

How Facebooks News Feed algorithms impact non-profit publishers: Shorensteins new report ShareByRande Price The Facebooks News Feed, introduced in 2006, was once a strong source of traffic for many publishers. News organization utilized the intermediary platform to grow their audiences. The social sharing of news also altered the direct-to-consumer paradigm. Earlier this year, Facebook announced that their News Feed would prioritize posts from friends and family

Finding local genome rearrangements The double cut and join (DCJ) model of genome rearrangement is well studied due to its mathematical simplicity and power to account for the many events that transform gene order. These studies have mostly been devoted to the understanding of minimum length scenarios transforming one genome into another. In this paper we search instead for rearrangement scenarios that minimize the number of rearrangements whose breakpoints are unlikely due to some biological criteria. One such criterion has recently become accessible due to the advent of the Hi-C experiment, facilitating the study of 3D spacial distance between breakpoint regions. We establish a link between the minimum number of unlikely rearrangements required by a scenario and the problem of finding a maximum edge-disjoint cycle packing on a certain transformed version of the adjacency graph. This link leads to a 3/2-approximation as well as an exact integer linear programming formulation for our problem, which we prove to be NP-comp

Man Groups Computer Driven Algorithms Prove Not So Airtight The firms flagship fund has lost $2 billion over the past month as a result of a bullishly positioned portfolio. The company on Tuesday warned investors of the impact the crisis was likely to have on its business, but remained upbeat on a medium and long-term view for the company and its investments. The past few months had been a negative period for its computer-driven flagship AHL fund, it said, with performance turning sharply down with markets following the earthquake in Japan. March brought an extraordinary concentration of macro shocks, Peter Clarke, chief executive, told shareholders in the FTSE-listed companys pre-close trading update. The situation in Japan had led to a decreased risk appetite and increased volatility in markets, he said. Man Groups Flagship Hit By Market Slide [FT]

Time for Transparent Algorithms in Civic Technologies Facebook strengthens our filter bubbles. So does Twitter. So does cable news. This has serious civic consequences. All three of these organizations are civic technologies regardless of whether they put profit or public interest first. The algorithms and business priorities of private institutions have shaped our civic reality and will continue to shape the future

Bellman Ford Algorithm in java Previous Next In this post, we will see about Bellman ford algorithm in java. Bellman Ford Algorithm is used to find shortest Distance of all Vertices from a given source vertex in a Directed Graph. Dijkstra Algorithm also serves the same purpose more efficiently but the Bellman-Ford Algorithm also works for Graphs with Negative weight edges. In addition to that, it also detects if there is any negative Cycle in the graphs. Input Format : In the first line, given two space separated integers, that is, number of vertices(V) and edges(E). Next E lines contains three integers each, which represents

Review Signal Ranking Algorithm Update In a recent article, The Rise and Fall of A Small Orange, it became quite apparent that our ranking algorithm here at Review Signal needed an update. Review Signal launched on September 25, 2012which was almost 3.5 years ago. At launch, we had data from as early as 2011, which means this site's data is up to 5 years old today. It wasn't an issue back then because the oldest data would be at most, two years old and still relevant. Today, our older data isn't really as relevant as it once was. A Small Orange exposed that weakness. It was an issue I knew I would have to deal with eventually, but nobody has really made the system fail until now. Since writing about The Rise and Fall of A Small Orange, I've been working hard to figure out a good way to update the ranking algorithm. The solution I have come up with is a decay function. Older reviews will be worth a fraction of their more recent counterparts. (1/(ABS(TIMESTAMPDIFF(YEAR, NOW(), max(timestamp)))+1)) This is the mathematical

Googles Core Algorithm Update: Expertise, Authority, and Trust One of the latest and most significant updates to the way Google ranks websites (its algorithm) came on August 2nd. Described as a core algorithm update it had a global roll out, affecting websites from multiple niches.From the numerous studies that followed there was a clear indication that health and YMYL (your money, your life)

Algorithms are opinions, not truth machines, and demand the application of ethics It can be easy to simply accept algorithms as indisputable mathematic truths. After all, who wants to spend their spare time deconstructing complex equations? But make no mistake: algorithms are limited tools for understanding the world, frequently as flawed and biased as the humans who create and interpret them. In this brief animation, which wasadapted from a 2017 presentation at the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) in London, the US data scientist Cathy ONeil, author of Weapons of Math Destruction (2016), argues that algorithms can be useful tools when thoughtfully deployed. However, their newfound ubiquity and massive power calls for ethical conduct from modellers, regulation and oversight by policymakers, and a more skeptical, mathematics-literate public.

Tenure-track assistant Professor within Algorithms The position is open from 1 June 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. The Algorithms and Complexity Section at DIKU is headed by Professor Mikkel Thorup. The group is prolific at the topmost conferences like STOC, FOCS, and SODA (we had 10 papers accepted for SODA18 and Thorup is PC chair for FOCS18). Adding to the excitement, we have the center Basic Algorithms Research Copenhagen (BARC) which also involves the IT-University of Copenhagen. The aim is to attract top talent from around the world to an ambitious, creative, collaborative, and fun environment. Using the power of mathematics, we strive to create fundamental breakthroughs in algorithmic thinking. While the focus of BARC is algorithms theory, we do have a track record of surprising algorithmic discoveries leading to major industrial applications.
