Worse, Snedeker has undergone swing changes to address the ailment. Admitting he's not 100 percent, Snedeker is one of our stay-aways this weekend. In terms of likes, Brian Harman tops our expert's list. Mentioned above, putting prowess will be key, an attribute that certainly applies to Harman. The 30-year-old lead the tour in total putting last season, and ranked fifth in the sg: putting. Throw in two top 10s this autumn, Harman's a sound bet for a high finish.

Same goes for Webb Simpson. Open champ has finished T-12 or better in three of five appearances here, and has two top 20s in the early season. Though he ranked 32nd in overall putting last year, his around-the-green output (14th in strokes gained, first in scrambling from the rough, fifth in sand saves) shows he has the game to excel at Sea Island.

He's not exactly a sleeper pick, yet Simpson's popularity shouldn't keep you from picking him in your lineup. Check out the projections from the professor and expert, and play with the tool below to make your own picks for the 2017 RSM Classic.

This paper reports an analysis of the accuracy of predictions of structural disorder received as part of the CASP5 experiment. Six groups made predictions of disorder. The predictions of the four most active groups have been compared with the experimental results, in terms of the sensitivity and specificity of the methods.

All four methods succeed in detecting over half the disordered residues in the targets, with a generally low rate of over-prediction. Two of the methods perform significantly better when the structure of a related protein is available.

There is a trade-off between the fraction of disordered residues detected and the extent of over-prediction, and groups have adopted different compromises in this respect. Comparison of performance at the same over-prediction rates highlights the role of related structures in some methods rather than others, with different groups achieving the highest sensitivity for different target sets.

Over-all, the methods are clearly of considerable use in identifying potential disorder. National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.

Further, price erosion will probably reach a level to allow the complete substitution of SAS hard disks, reducing the usage of hybrid systems to usage areas that focus on the lowest costs per capacity and which do not have high-performance requirements.

SSAs are emerging as the general preference to hybrid arrays and as a clear replacement for aging disk arrays. Vendors are innovating with various form factors and technologies such as PCIe, NMVe and 3D XPoint.

CS 446: Machine Learning

NVMe is a much-needed update to data transport mechanisms created in an era when Internet users were happy with 28k dial-up connections, This brings the communication channels around storage closer to the velocity of modern processors and flash architectures. NVMe also excites Jeff Boudreau, president, Dell EMC Storage Division. He notes that although we are still in the early days of real NVMe usage in storage, it will become the industry standard in five years. Storage class memory (SCM) is a general term that may include specific vendor offerings such as 3D XPoint, ZSSD and others.

It is also referenced sometimes as persistent memory (PMEM). This memory technology promises to be 10 times denser and up to 1000 times faster than conventional flash.

Machine Learning (CS 446) Fall 2019

Jeff Baxter, chief evangelist for ONTAP at NetApp, agrees that the new possibilities offered by SCM and NVMe are disrupting the market and fueling innovation. NetApp has been developing NVMe-over-Fabrics technology over existing 32 GB FC SAN infrastructure from Brocade directly to NetApp AFF all-flash arrays running the NetApp ONTAP data management system. It has also introduced SCM technology as a cache directly within an AFF storage controller, providing three times the IOPS with the same release of ONTAP, same controller and same workload.

These technological breakthroughs are the news of today. But in a few years, they will enter the mainstream. Users can expect to pay more for products containing SCM and other technologies for a while. Eventually, however, they will become the norm. These will be based on server designs with intelligent storage software on top, and less on dedicated storage controller design.

When Rob Commins, vice president of marketing at Tegile looks into the crystal ball, he sees one large shared memory pool as opposed to a shared storage pool. Eric Herzog, vice president of worldwide storage channels, IBM, concurs with other experts that we can expect NVMe and 3D XPoint to become increasingly more prevalent. He also called attention to recent discussions and presentations centered around RRAM as yet another wave of high performance, non-volatile storage media.

At the same time, he foresees flash moving down the food chain. Whereas disk or even tape is regarded as the best home for secondary storage currently, Herzog thinks flash will gradually take over large chunks of these markets. Perhaps there will be a price premium for the very latest flash technologies like SCM. But otherwise, the idea that all-flash arrays are more expensive than high-performance hard drive based systems is a myth, according to Herzog.

On cost per GB, he thinks they are on par. Once you factor in the extensive abilities for data reduction, they can be less expensive per GB.

This will spur further development in the software and analytics fields. Boudreau pointed to machine learning as a key enabler. Please enable Javascript in your browser, before you post the comment.

The ERP is the premium you get from holding stocks, expressed as a percentage over some supposed risk-free measure such as the 10-year gilt rate.

And there's nothing wrong with that. It's true that most often investors are rewarded long term for taking extra volatility risk.

Since 1926, the average annualised ERP has been 4. And theoretically, investors should be rewarded for suffering through stock market swings. If you weren't likely to get higher reward for higher risk, why would anyone want the higher risk.Coverage of global corporate reputation and communications news and trends, from the leading online corporate PR news website The Holmes Report.
