Perturbations, optimization, and statistics( )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In nearly all machine learning, decisions must be made given current knowledge. Surprisingly, making what is believed to be the best decision is not always the best strategy, even when learning in a supervised learning setting. An emerging body of work on learning under different rules applies perturbations to decision and learning procedures. These methods provide simple and highly efficient learning rules with improved theoretical guarantees. This book describes perturbation-based methods developed in machine learning to augment novel optimization methods with strong statistical guarantees, offering readers a state-of-the-art overview. Chapters address recent modeling ideas that have arisen within the perturbations framework, including Perturb & MAP, herding, and the use of neural networks to map generic noise to distribution over highly structured data. They describe new learning procedures for perturbation models, including an improved EM algorithm and a learning algorithm that aims to match moments of model samples to moments of data. They discuss understanding the relation of perturbation models to their traditional counterparts, with one chapter showing that the perturbations viewpoint can lead to new algorithms in the traditional setting. And they consider perturbation-based regularization in neural networks, offering a more complete understanding of dropout and studying perturbations in the context of deep neural networks.--
Should we tax the rich more? : Krugman and Papandreou vs. Gingrich and Laffer : the Munk Debate on economic inequality( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As middle-class incomes stagnate in advanced economies while the rich experience record income gains, the 11th semi-annual Munk Debate pits wealth redistribution supporters Paul Krugman and George Papandreou against Newt Gingrich and Arthur Laffer to debate taxation -- should the rich pay more? For some the answer is obvious: redistribute the wealth of the top income earners who have enjoyed, for almost a generation, the lion's share of all income gains. Imposing higher taxes on the wealthy is the best way for countries such as Canada to reinvest in their social safety nets, education, and infrastructure while protecting the middle class. Others argue that anemic economic growth, not income inequality, is the real problem facing advanced countries. In a globalized economy, raising taxes on society's wealth creators leads to capital flight, falling government revenues, and less money for the poor. These same voices contend that lowering taxes on everyone stimulates innovation and investment, fueling future prosperity. With advanced countries facing overextended social services, crumbling infrastructure, and sluggish economic growth, this premiere debate series on economic inequality tackles the essential public policy issue: Should we tax the rich more?

George Papandreou Imagine a European democracy without borders by Giōrgos A Papandreou( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Greece has been the poster child for European economic crisis, but former Prime Minister George Papandreou wonders if it's just a preview of what's to come. "Our democracies," he says, "are trapped by systems that are too big to fail, or more accurately, too big to control"--While "politicians like me have lost the trust of their peoples." How to solve it? Have citizens re-engage more directly in a new democratic bargain."

Greek Foreign Policy : a Policy of Stability, Cooperation and Development( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes the two major objectives of Greek foreign policy. The first is to allow the country to exploit, as best as possible, all economic opportunities within the world market in order to promote and facilitate Greece's entry into the European Monetary Union (EMU). The second objective is for Greece to take the lead in building the foundations for peace and security within the region. Against this background, the analysis presents the approach of the Greek authorities to the relationship with Turkey, to the NATO enlargement and to the Balkan problem, especially the situation in Kosovo.--SCAD summary
