Neural Networks Introduction

As readers may know I have been helped in my court cases over the past few years by Samuel Collingwood Smith. As well as being a law graduate and former councillor, Sam is also a software developer and recently he has begun two article series on artificial intelligence. One focuses on neural networks, one more on the tensor mathematics used in modern AI and neural networks. These are intended to be simple, step-by-step introductions for those new to both topics.

Dear John,

I have followed your dedicated work around Ofsted since first learning of you well over a decade now. A summary of Ofsteds issues I utilised with my own experience, to create a database which I used to gather data for the Australian 2014 Inquiry into Children in Out of Home Care.

We gathered fantastic data however there were issues at the time which Alecomm was not aware of, firstly that the chair was pro-adoption. Anyway we are now updating and creating an even more indepth database which will be used to create a white paper which we will then be able to use in parliament and hopefully to force another inquiry, in which this time we will ensure that we are aware of the tactics that may be used to tank the inquiry, so we can come out with the results and requirements that are so desperately needed in child protection reform in Australia.

I just want to say thankyou so much for the work you do and continue to do and that if you have any suggestions or work that we could use for our new database I would love to hear from you.

I have included the link to the old database questions etc for your to view and maybe recommend some additional alterations - child protection appears to be the same in western worlds with the exception of the wording.

Kind regards
Marney Macdonald
CEO Alecomm

Dear John,
I have been following your diligent efforts regarding Ofsted for well over a decade, ever since I first became aware of you. By combining my personal experience with a summary of Ofsted's concerns, I was able to compile a database for the 2014 Australian Enquiry into Children in Out-of-Home Care.
Excellent data was collected; however, Alecomm was unaware of certain issues that arose during that period, the first of which was that the chair held a pro-adoption stance. Regardless, at this time we are in the process of updating and expanding a database that will serve as the foundation for a white paper that we hope to present in parliament and, hopefully, compel another enquiry. This time around, we will ensure that we are cognisant of any strategies that could be employed to sabotage the investigation, so that we may produce the desperately needed results and requirements for child protection reform in Australia.
I wanted to extend my sincere appreciation for the efforts you have made and continue to make. Should you have any recommendations or additional work that could be incorporated into our new database, I would be delighted to receive it.
For your perusal and potential suggestion of further modifications, I have attached the hyperlink to the previous database queries, among others; child protection appears to be essentially identical in western societies, save for wording.
Sincere respects
Macdonald Marney is the CEO of Alecomm.

Its the long genes that stop working

People who read my blog will be aware that I have for some time argued that most (if not all) diseases of aging are caused by cells not being able to produce enough of the right proteins. What happens is that certain genes stop functioning because of a metabolic imbalance. I was, however, mystified as to why it was always particular genes that stopped working. Recently, however, there have been three papers produced: Aging is associated with a systemic length-associated transcriptome imbalance Age- or lifestyle-induced accumulation of genotoxicity is associated with a generalized shutdown of long gene transcription and Gene Size Matters: An Analysis of Gene Length in the Human Genome From these it is obvious to see that the genes that stop working are the longer ones. To me it is therefore obvious that if there is a shortage of nuclear Acetyl-CoA then it would mean that the probability of longer Genes being transcribed would be reduced to a greater extent than shorter ones.
