Audio Intro

Description Victoria provides professional description services for art and media. Audiodescription adds live or pre-recorded verbal information to performances, events, exhibitions, and moving images. Designed for people with vision impairments, this information is delivered through a variety of means that complement the work.

Our describers come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines in art, performance and media, combining their own expertise with expert training in description. We have described for theatre shows, exhibitions, documentary videos, films, fireworks displays and live art experiences. Audiodescription can be adapted to any work in any medium.

We also provide comprehensive advice and support on marketing your show to audiences with low vision, and consider the experience of your patrons from the first moment they hear about the work, to the time they step out of the venue.

We work in accordance with international best-practice standards of audio description. More information about our approach can be found in the La Sportiva Miura Shoe Womens Ice 7PTva
guidelines, and in An Introduction to Audio Description: A Practical Guide by Dr. Louise Fryer (Routledge, 2016).

You can listen to or read about some of our work at the following links:

Listen: Descriptive pre-show notes from Precarious , by Circus Oz.

We aim to create an experience that is as close as possible to that a sighted audience has. Our service is designed to be as inclusive as possible, and reinforce the power of art as a social, human experience.

We listen to our audience when making decisions about how the service is developed and rolled out. We take a robust approach in gathering audience feedback and give patrons the opportunity to voice their opinion on the quality and delivery of the description. We act foremost as advocates for our audience in arts spaces, ensuring their needs are met.

We consider the needs of the audience from their very first interaction with the company. This includes the creation of marketing materials in audio and screen-reader friendly formats,designingaccessible booking processes, and considering the needs of the audience in arts environments.

Before we get started, you should try to familiarize yourself with “vanilla” neural networks. If you need a refresher, check out our neural networks and backpropogation mega-post from earlier this year. This is so you know the basics of machine learning, linear algebra, neural network architecture, cost functions, optimization methods, training/test sets, activation functions/what they do, softmax, etc. Reading our article on convolutional neural networks may also make you more comfortable entering this post, especially because we often reference CNNs. Checking out article I wrote on vanishing gradients will help later on, as well.

Rule of thumb: the more you know, the better!

I can’t link to each section, but here’s what we cover in this article (save the intro and conclusion):

What can RNNs do? Show me. Formalism. An example? Okay! Training (or, why vanilla RNNs suck.) Fixing the problem with LSTMs (Part I). Fixing the problem with LSTMs (Part II). Yay RNNs! In Practice. Building a Vanilla Recurrent Neural Network.

There are a number of very important tasks that ANNs and CNNs cannot solve, that RNNs are used for instead. Tasks like: image captioning, language translation, sentiment classification, predictive typing, video classification, natural language processing, speech recognition, and a lot more interesting things that have been presented in recent research papers (for example… learning to learn by gradient descent by gradient descent !).

RNNs are very powerful. Y’know how regular neural networks have been proved to be “universal function approximators”? If you didn’t:

That’s pretty confusing. Basically, what this states is that an artificial neural network can compute any function. Even if someone gives you an extremely wiggly, complex looking function, it’s guaranteed that there exists a neural network that can produce (or at least extremely closely approximate) it. The proof itself is very complex, but is a brilliant article offering a visual approach as to whyit’s true.

So, that’s great. ANNs are universal function approximators. RNNs take it a step further, though; Merrell Mens Accentor Stretch Hiking Shoes CWbJt
. In fact, some RNNs with proper weights and architecture qualify as Turing Complete:

often not in practice

That’s cool, isn’t it? Now, this is all theoretical, and in practice means less than you think, so don’t get too hyped. Hopefully, though, this gives some more insight into why RNNs are super important for future developments in machine learning — and why you should read on.

At this point, if you weren’t previously hooked on learning what the heck these things are, you should be now. (If you still aren’t, just bare with me. Things will get spicy soon.) So, let’s dive in.

Sasakamoose was recognized for unique achievements and the contributions he made by the Assembly of First Nations and the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations, plus other societal and sporting companies. In 1994, Sasakamoose was among the first athletes to be enlisted into the Saskatchewan 1 st Nations Sports Hall of Fame. He got enlisted in the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame in 2007 and enlisted in 2012 in Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame. He has also been enlisted into the Prince Albert Hall of Fame and the Canadian Native Hockey Hall of Fame (Malenstyn, 2005).

Back in 2011, Fred got a prestigious National Aboriginal Achievement Award. Besides this, he received an FSIN Circle of Honor Award and a Meadow Lake Wall of Fame Award ( Malenstyn, 2005 ). His other achievement and which was important to him since child hood was to be extensively involved in the development of sports programs more so among the indigenous children (Coakley and Donnelly, 2009, p, 134).

Challenges faced by Sasakamoose

His childhood was full of challenges since he lost six siblings to small pox. The other challenge relates to the fact that being an aboriginal, Sasakamoose faced a lot of racism as a young boy and even during his career as an ice hockey player ( Jackson, Scherer and Martyn, 2011, p, 116 ). Been the odd one out in a team of ‘white’ players, Fred at times felt the odd one out and at times he was segregated and looked down upon by his fellow players. The aboriginal were left out in literally every sport and those that took part in any sport, were oftenly discriminated against in terms of not been given the chance to play ( Pauls, 2014 ). They were oftenly viewed as lacking the capacity or the skills to play any sport Sasakamoose was able to overcome this issue by honing his skills to a point whereby he become the most valuable player of his hockey team.

At a societal level, after he retired from competitive hockey, Fred Sasakamoose used to do some farming and hunted from his home base at Sandy Lake (Thompson, 2004). However, he never forgot his love of hockey and belief in the power that sport has when it comes to improving the lives of the society. It was owing to his firm belief that as from 1961 onward, Fred used his fame to create more opportunities for the youths in sports such as hockey, long-distance running , AllhqFashion Womens Buckle Round Closed Toe HighHeels PU Solid PumpsShoes White 34 98pcsZ
, Spring Step Womens Voljeti Beige cUiJh9
and AmoonyFashion Womens OpenToe HighHeels Soft Material Assorted Color Buckle Sandals Beige Fbht53k
(Nicholson, 2010). Besides this, Sasakamoose was among the founding members of the Northern Indian Hockey League. He has also been involved in several other initiatives, such as the Saskatchewan Indian Summer, Saskatoon’s All Nations Hockey School and Fred Sasakamoose All Star Hockey Week- multi-racial hockey camp. All this initiatives were intended to create opportunities not only for the youths, but also for the minority groups.

I’ve battled math phobia demons all my life. As a result, I’ve become very creative at finding solutions around the “math requirement” system to stay employed. I’ve been an IT professional for about 20 years and earned more than some college graduates. At one point I even managed a team of professionals with degrees. Admittedly, I envied not having “back in college” stories, and obviously have no college buddies, I have Navy buddies. But I’m a parent now of two young children and I’m going to encourage them into college, I finish my degree. However, the math demons are back and intermediate algebra is keeping me from graduating with a measly AA in Information Technology (never mind that I got As in all my other classes).

I’m embarrassed that I have to peek into my son’s 5th grade math book for tips, and more embarrassed that I have to admit to my wife that I’m really bad at math. Still, they can’t see me as a quitter. I learn the material, I soar through the homework, I answer all the questions in class and I’m motivated and involved. Then … I flunk the tests. Yes, I’ve sought help for this and I’ve read about all the titles and myths about “math phobia” and that there is no such thing.

But also, I can’t ignore the fact that in 20 years in the IT industry, not once have I needed anything that resembled algebra to do my work – even in computer programming (Javascript, Perl, UNIX), systems administration, and computer graphics. In fact, I used to assist the folks that had degrees when I managed a 3D graphics lab. For some reason they couldn’t figure out Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG), nor could they track a simply problem with their computers. Yet they had a degree!! You can imagine my confusion and frustration.

So I have to wonder what is its purpose? I have seen computer science professionals actually use discrete logic and math to develop compilers with really tricky algorithms that I _sort of_ understand. But those cats have PhDs! They’re way beyond all this.

This article really interested me. On one hand I completely agree with the author. Not only are algebra skills often not used in careers, but performing algebra often requires students to memorize a set of arbitrary rules and apply them. Doing this does not demonstrate higher level thinking but rather, promotes surface level memorization which is not helpful to increase higher level understanding. However, I also don't think we should delete intermediate algebra from … Read More

This article really interested me. On one hand I completely agree with the author. Not only are algebra skills often not used in careers, but performing algebra often requires students to memorize a set of arbitrary rules and apply them. Doing this does not demonstrate higher level thinking but rather, promotes surface level memorization which is not helpful to increase higher level understanding. However, I also don’t think we should delete intermediate algebra from the requirements. I think the subject can be very valuable if the students have a well-rounded view of why they are doing the computations. Perhaps the problem is not the subject but rather how it is being taught. If we teach students to problem solve, evaluate, and search for understanding in an algebra class, surely these skills will be useful later in life.

The purpose of high school is to prepare students to be a contributing member of society (or rather, that should be the purpose). The purpose of college is to prepare students for a job in the field they have chosen to be in. If Intermediate Algebra is not needed to prepare a student for a certain job, why would it be required? It seems to be a waste of time for the student and the … Read More
