Data

Daragh Sibley, et al, discuss using genetic algorithms to help design clothing:

Recombination. Having selected a set of high performing blouses we can now consider how they should be recombined to form a new child. While a traditional genetic algorithm would stochastically search all combinations over many market generations, we can shortcut that process by algorithmically looking for features that have been historically preferred by our target client segment.

To achieve this, we find statistical regularities between the population of blouses’ attributes (or configurations of attributes) and client feedback. For instance, we can model the relationship between attributes of our existing blouses and client feedback via:

Genetic algorithms (and Koza-style genetic programming) have long been a favorite topic of mine.  Integrating GA with fashion was not something that came to mind, but is a very interesting solution.

Randolph West argues that you should keep data and containers separated: Where it gets interesting is that the SQL Server container is also where the database files are stored by default. I raised a point (which Grant and others have already noted in the past) that persisted storage volumes allow us to throw away a SQL Server […]

Jen Stirrup is pleased that Microsoft is bringing back open datasets: Nearly three years ago, I complained bitterly about the demise of Windows Datamarket, which aimed to provide free, stock datasets for any and every purpose. I was a huge fan of the date dimension and  the geography dimension, since they really helped me to get […]
