L'eresia della scienza. L'essenziale per capire l'impresa scientifica

Trans. M. Pasi [Uncommon feel: The Heretical Nature of Science]

Religione e arte sembrano accompagnare l'avventura umana in ogni pace e in ogni luogo, sotto los angeles costellazione di qualsiasi civiltà. los angeles scienza invece è nata esclusivamente in Europa solo quattro secoli fa, ai tempi di Copernico e Vesalio, Keplero e Galileo. L'impresa scientifica, dunque , non è una componente necessaria di ogni sviluppo di civiltà; piuttosto è un fatto contingente, raro e prezioso, los angeles cui origine è dovuta alla casuale combinazione dei più bizzarri e improbabili fattori.

Con il suo stile semplice ed efficace, Alan Cromer delinea in capitoli chiari ed esaurienti los angeles struttura del cosmo, l'origine della vita sulla Terra, l'evoluzione delle specie, l. a. nascita delle top civiltà, fino a cogliere su questo sfondo gli aspetti peculiari del fenomeno "scienza". los angeles scienza è los angeles maggiore eresia che l'uomo abbia mai commesso contro il proprio egocentrismo, contro l'idea che los angeles natura sia profondamente coinvolta nella vicenda del genere umano, così piccola e irrisoria rispetto all'età e alla vastità dell ' universo. Raggiungere lo spirito critico, organizzarlo in una rete sistematica di studiosi, dare vita a un apparato tecnologicamente efficiente sono i tre aspetti principali di quell'eresia che, se molto deve ai padri fondatori della scienza all'inizio del Seicento, non minori debiti ha con quel miracolo greco che fiorì qualche secolo prima di Cristo nelle città-stato dell'Ellade e che non ha eguali né nelle antiche civiltà del Nilo o della Mezzaluna Fertile, né nella tradizione ebraica, e nemmeno nelle grandiose realizzazioni dell'India dei santoni e della Cina dei letterati confuciani. Professore di Fisica alla Northeastern college, Alan Cromer è negli united states un notissimo divulgatore, impegnato in prima character consistent with los angeles diffusione della scienza nel proprio paese.

Sample text

The closest node can then be chosen and its subtree traversed recursively. The matched leaf node is then the approximate nearest-neighbour of the query descriptor. Unlike [11] where inverse files are used, we label each leaf-node with the DB image from which it is derived. We adopt a simple voting strategy to find potential DB images. Each SURF point in the query image is matched to its approximate-NN by the SURFtree, and then casts one vote for the corresponding DB image. ie/∼oconaire/source/ In order to estimate how well this voting strategy approximates bi-directional match ranking, we measured how frequently the best database match (highest score according to bi-directional matching) appeared in the top N results.

Additionally, if the distance between the estimated positions of two consecutive images was greater than 10m, the position of the image with the lower score was interpolated. 5 Experimental Results Figure 9 shows some examples of the matching. In column 1, the images are matched despite occlusion and one image captured during the day, the other at 24 ´ Conaire, M. E. O’Connor C. O Fig. 9.

Similarly, columns 2, 3 and 4 indicate the robustness of the matching to the introduction of new objects and scale changes.
