NYT - How Revolutionary Tools Cracked a 1700s CodeIt has been more than six decades since Warren Weaver, a pioneer in automated language translation, suggested applying code-breaking techniques to the challenge of interpreting a foreign language.In an oft-cited letter in 1947 to the mathematician Norbert Weiner, he wrote: ?One naturally wonders if the problem of translation could conceivably be treated as a problem in cryptography. When I look at an article in Russian, I say: ?This is really written in English, but it has been coded in some strange symbols. I will now proceed to decode.? ?That insight led to a generation of statistics-based language programs like Google Translate ? and, not so incidentally, to new tools for breaking codes that go back to the Middle Ages.Now a team of Swedish and American linguists has applied statistics-based translation techniques to crack one of the most stubborn of codes: the Copiale Cipher, a hand-lettered 105-page manuscript that appears to date from the late 18th century. They described their work at a meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics in Portland, Ore.Discovered in an academic archive in the former East Germany, the elaborately bound volume of gold and green brocade paper holds 75,000 characters, a perplexing mix of mysterious symbols and Roman letters. The name comes from one of only two non-coded inscriptions in the document.

I don't see any kommas in this original text which would suggest, at first sight, that it is not a Latin, nor, Germanic language.

RANDOM MATRIX THEORY--------> watch the video, it is worth New Math in HIV Fight - Statistical Method Evolves From Physics to Wall Street to Battle Against AIDSQuoteTo find the vulnerable sectors in HIV, Drs. Chakraborty and Dahirel reached back to a statistical method called random matrix theory, which has also been used to analyze the behavior of stocks. While stock market sectors are already well defined, the Ragon researchers didn't necessarily know what viral sectors they were looking for. Moreover, they wanted to take a fresh look at the virus.

NS - Facial recognition software spots family resemblanceWe intuitively recognise family resemblance through features like shared eye colour or chin contours, but computers have a hard time making such links between photos of different people.
