What is a Sedimentary Rock?

In this video we're going to be talking about sedimentary rocks. Please make sure to have [your] rock's flowchart ready as we're going to be filling in another portion of it today. Let's get started. Of course, as I mentioned, we're talking about sedimentary rocks, the second in a variety of rocks in our rocks chapter. Please recall that rocks are classified according to the way in which they formed. So, for example, igneous rocks formed from the cooling and solidification of Magma or Lava. Now, sedimentary rocks form in an entirely different way, which I'd like to describe now. […]

Lecture 1.9 — Non-technical explanation of DL (2) — [AI For Everyone | Andrew Ng]

In the last video, you saw how a neural network can be applied to demand prediction, but how can the new network look at the picture and figure out what's in the picture? Or listen to an audio clip and understand what is said in an audio clip? Let's take a look at a more complex example of applying a neural network to face recognition. Say you want to build a system to recognize people from pictures, how can a piece of software look at this picture and figure out the identity of the person in it? Let's zoom in […]

Siberian Traps likely triggered end-Permian mass extinction

Around 252 million years ago more than 96 percent of marine species and 70 percent of land species disappeared in a geological instant. This event the so-called end-Permian mass extinction or more commonly known as, "The Great Dying" remains the most severe extinction event in Earth's history, but its direct cause has remained a mystery. Scientists suspect massive volcanic activity in an area of Russia called The Siberian Traps may have had a role in the Great Dying by raising the air and sea temperatures and releasing toxic amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere of a very short period […]

Pacific Northwest Earthquakes—3 Types (Educational)

The Pacific Northwest is host to 3 types of tectonic earthquakes : Magnitude nine Cascadia megathrust quakes. Magnitude 6.5 to 7 deep earthquakes, and Shallow crustal-fault earthquakes withmagnitudes as much as 7.5. What motives them? We can exhibit how we can show how subduction of the Juan deFuca plate; basin & range extension, invasion of crustal blocks from California, and the resistance of the Canadian crustal buttresscombine to provide these earthquakes. We by using watching at Western North Americasactive plate boundaries The San Andreas Fault is a strike-slip change into fault zone alongwhich the Pacific Plate is sliding northwest at […]

New DeepMind AI Beats AlphaGo 100-0 | Two Minute Papers #201

Dear Fellow Scholars, this is Two Minute Papers with Károly Zsolnai-Fehér. Hold on to your papers, because this work on AlphaGo is absolute insanity. In the game of Go, the players put stones on a table where the objective is to surround more territory than the opponent. This is a beautiful game that is particularly interesting for AI research, because the space of possible moves is vastly larger than in chess, which means that using any sort of exhaustive search is out of question and we have to resort to smart algorithms that are able to identify a small number […]

Top 10 Deadliest Volcano Eruptions

Hey YouTube, Jim here! Welcome to Top10Archive! Mother Nature has proven time and time again that she’s a force to be respected. Beneath the Earth’s crust, molten rock threatens to burst through thin layers of the planet and flow across the surface, leveling everything in its path. While some volcanic activity leaves a wake of minimal damage, others impact a region so badly that they earned a spot on this Top 10 Deadliest Volcanic Eruptions. Before we get started, help us out by hitting that like button, and be sure to leave us a comment because we're always looking to […]
