State commits to wind energy for 3.2M, eyes onshore sites

New Jersey formally committed itself Wednesday to using offshore wind energy to power 3.2 million homes and will study the best ways to get that electricity from ocean turbines to communities where it is needed.


PoseRBPF: A new particle filter for 6D object pose tracking

Researchers at NVIDIA, University of Washington, Stanford University, and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign have recently developed a Rao-Blackwellized particle filter for 6-D pose tracking, called PoseRBPF. The approach ...


Estimation is the calculated approximation of a result which is usable even if input data may be incomplete or uncertain.

In statistics,

In mathematics, approximation or estimation typically means finding upper or lower bounds of a quantity that cannot readily be computed precisely.

In signal processing, see estimation theory for approximating an unobserved signal on the basis of an observed signal containing noise.

In project management, see estimation (project management) for applications to project planning.

In physics, a Fermi problem is one concerning estimation in problems which typically involve making justified guesses about quantities that seem impossible to compute given limited available information.
