JLearn (JQuery learn) is a simple program that allows you to learn anything (if a quizz has been written of course!).From japanese alphabet to maths, passing by world capitals, anything can be learnt.JLearn interface is pretty simple: one box showing you the question, and one box to enter the answer.If you don't know the answer, just press the [space key] and it will be shown.Quizzes are submitted by the community, you can find some here or even write your own!
When human raters are presented with a collection of shapes and asked to rank them according to their aesthetic appeal, the results often indicate that there is a statistical consensus among the raters. Yet it might be difficult to define a succinct set of rules that capture the aesthetic preferences of the raters. In this work, we explore a data-driven approach to aesthetic enhancement of such shapes. Specifically, we focus on the challenging problem of enhancing the aesthetic appeal (or the attractiveness) of human faces in frontal photographs (portraits), while maintaining close similarity with the original.

Jonathan Puckey is a Dutch graphic designer who can script. He often uses Scriptographer, a scripting plugin for Adobe Illustrator, so that’s probably why he calls his work ‘conditional design’. ‘Delaunay Raster’ is his latest project, it’s image vectorization based on Delaunay triangulation.
Natural magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic, ever-changing geometries. Scientists from NASA's Space Sciences Laboratory excitedly describe their discoveries. Natural magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic, ever-changing geometries as scientists from NASA's Space Sciences Laboratory excitedly describe their discoveries. The secret lives of invisible magnetic fields are revealed as chaotic, ever-changing geometries. All action takes place around NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratory, UC Berkeley, to recordings of space scientists describing their discoveries. Actual VLF audio recordings control the evolution of the fields as they delve into our inaudible surroundings, revealing recurrent ‘whistlers’ produced by fleeting electrons. Are we observing a series of scientific experiments, the universe in flux, or a documentary of a fictional world?
