The SoloHI instrument on Solar Orbiter and the WISPR instrument on Solar Probe+ will make white light coronagraphic images of the corona as the two spacecraft orbit the Sun. The minimum perihelia for Solar Orbiter is about 60 Rsun and for SP+ is 9.5 Rsun. The wide field of view of the WISPR instrument (about 105 degrees radially) corresponds to viewing the corona from 2.2 Rsun to 20 Rsun. Thus the entire Thomson hemisphere is contained within the telescope’s field and we need to think of the instrument as being a traditional remote sensing instrument and then transitioning to a local in-situ instrument. The local behavior derives from the fact that the maximum Thomson scattering will favor the electron plasma close to the spacecraft - exactly what the in-situ instruments will be sampling. SoloHI and WISPR will also observe scattered light from dust in the inner heliosphere, which will be an entirely new spatial regime for dust observations from a coronagraph, which we assume to arise from dust in the general neighborhood of about half way between the observer and the Sun. As the dust grains approach the Sun, they evaporate and do not contribute to the scattering. A dust free zone has been postulated to exist somewhere inside of 5 Rsun where all dust is evaporated, but this has never been observed. The radial position where the evaporation occurs will depend on the precise molecular composition of the individual grains. The orbital plane of Solar Orbiter will gradually increase up to about 35 degrees, enabling a very different view through the zodiacal dust cloud to test the models generated from in-ecliptic observations. In this paper we will explore some of the issues associated with the observation of the dust and will present a simple model to explore the sensitivity of the instrument to observe such evaporations.

In large-scale networks, full-mesh active probing of end-to-end performance metrics is infeasible. Measuring a small set of pairs and predicting the others is more scalable. Under this framework, we formulate the prediction problem as matrix completion, whereby unknown entries of an incomplete matrix of pairwise measurements are to be predicted. This problem can be solved by matrix factorization because performance matrices have a low rank, thanks to the correlations among measurements. Moreover, its resolution can be fully decentralized without actually building matrices nor relying on special landmarks or central servers. In this paper we demonstrate that this approach is also applicable when the performance values are not measured exactly, but are only known to belong to one among some predefined performance classes, such as "good" and "bad". Such classification-based formulation not only fulfills the requirements of many Internet applications but also reduces the measurement cost and enables a unified treatment of various performance metrics. We propose a decentralized approach based on Stochastic Gradient Descent to solve this class-based matrix completion problem. Experiments on various datasets, relative to two kinds of metrics, show the accuracy of the approach, its robustness against erroneous measurements and its usability on peer selection. [less ▲]

HTLV-Associated Myelopathy/Tropical Spastic Paraparesis (HAM/TSP) is a neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system induced by Human T lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1). As a potential therapeutic approach, we previously suggested reducing the proviral load (PVL) by modulating lysine deacetylase activity using valproic acid (VPA) and exposing virus-positive cells to the host immune response. We conducted a single-center, two-year open-label trial, with 19 HAM/TSP volunteers treated with oral VPA. PVL, CD38/HLA-DR expression and CD8+ lysis efficiency were not significantly affected by VPA. Mean scores of HAM/TSP disability did not differ between baseline and final visit. Walking Time Test (WTT) increased significantly (>20%) in 3 patients and was in keeping with minor VPA side effects (drowsiness and tremor). WTT improved rapidly after VPA discontinuation. We conclude that long term treatment with VPA is safe in HAM/TSP. [less ▲]

This article presents a systemic approach to the concept of natural intelligence with the aim of creating an artificial intelligence. Thus, the natural intelligence, human and nonhuman animals, is a function composed of faculties to know and understand. In addition, natural intelligence is inseparable from the structure, namely the organs of the brain and body. The temptation is to equip computer systems with artificial intelligence that should have a function composed of the same faculties as those encompassed in human intelligence. The artificial intelligence must also remain inseparable from the structure, namely the organs of an artificial brain and an artificial body. As a result, the artificial robot is the ideal structure to see the emergence of a strong artificial intelligence. Note that a weak artificial intelligence is developed on computer systems by a simulation program of intelligence. In this paper, neural programmable memories will be presented and simulated [less ▲]

This communication deals with the question to know if this is possible to program a neural system with a language and a consciousness. There are several levels and categories of language, by example, verbal and non-verbal languages, signs language, etc. There are also several levels and categories of consciousness, by example, verbal consciousness, non-verbal selfconsciousness, and absence of consciousness with the a-consciousness. By a systemic approach, we extend the role of the brain to the whole neural ectoderm, including the nervous systems, the brainstem, the brain, and the skin that is the actual envelope of the brain to the environment. This paper will demonstrate that such a neural system can be programmed, on the basis of scientific research in experimental neurosciences and in artificial intelligence, extending de facto all the possibilities of learning of classical neural networks.

Due to greater awareness of the necessity to preserve soil functions from human pressure on the environment, the need for soil information is increasing. Supported by the evolution of technologies these last decades, great efforts were achieved to provide up-to-date, high resolution, continuous data on soil properties. These efforts are valuable and necessary, but they are often restricted to limited surfaces. Morevover, each of these data reveals partial picture of the soil and doesn’t give an insight into their genesis, organisation and functionality. Therefore the Soil Map of Belgium remains an essential resource. On the other hand, foreign (soil) scientists frequently claim that we (the Belgium country) have a prodigious soil map and implicitly conclude we don’t need any more soil information. More questionable, many users of the now available digital soil maps think they obtained the « Holy Grail » allowing them to extract all the information they need about soil. This is clearly not the case, many currently « wanted » soil parameters being either missing, or displaying insufficient precision. But the wealthy potential of the Soil Map of Belgium in itself is not enough nor always advisedly used. Here are some of the multiple reasons to underline: (i) the map and its legend are complex and few people take/have time to (properly) learn it before use ; (ii) the great number of legend units is confusing for users, lacking tools for organising and stratifying their data ; (iii) the easygoing use (from a GIS point of view) of the legend units, due to their concatenated structure and facilitated by the split structure of the digital map’s attribute table, leads incidiously to a clearcut « symbol by symbol » use of the map, coupled with strict definition of the symbols. Hence a sharp loss of information and comprehension emerging from the whole legend unit or linked to the interpretation of the symbols ; (iv) without the undeniable expert knowledge of the generation who made the map, the current users don’t have in mind the regional nuance, the numerous implicit information lying into the legend, the concepts used during the survey and reflecting state of knowledge on soil formation and their relative importance for agricultural land-use in the 1950s ; (v) the new generation is desperatly short of practice of soil observation in the field ; (vi) a wealth of information is also being lost when the field notes, unpublished reports, minutes of meetings and draft maps are being disregarded, as well as other legacy data associated with the map (booklets, monographs, …). This presentation will show through selected examples how the Digital Soil Map of Wallonia Project contribute to overcome this situation in order to reach this ambitious but feasible objective : a better understanding and use of the Soil Map of Belgium by the maximum of people.
