To Weight or Not to Weight, That Is the Question: The Design of a Composite Indicator of Landscape Fragmentation

Andrea De Montis, Vittorio Serra, Giovanna Calia, Daniele Trogu, Antonio Ledda
2021 Applied Sciences  
In this paper, we aim at presenting a weighted release of the CILF and at developing the Hamletian question of whether weighting is worthwhile or not.  ...  The exercise provides the reader with meaningful results. Higher sensitivity values signal that the effort of weighting leads to more informative composites.  ...  Sensitivity analysis is a powerful instrument and can be used to address properly the Hamletian question concerning the opportunity to introduce the weights or not.  ...

To Share or Not To Share: A Comprehensive Appraisal of Weight-Sharing [article]

Aloïs Pourchot, Alexis Ducarouge, Olivier Sigaud

Although very appealing, this framework is not without drawbacks and several works have started to question its capabilities on small hand-crafted benchmarks.  ...  By comparing a SOTA WS approach to a plain random search we show that, despite decent correlations between evaluations using weight-sharing and standalone ones, WS is only rarely significantly helpful  ...  TOP-20 R rs −R reRrs −R ws A RES FULL 0.04 ± 0.03 (p=0.02, d= 0.14) -0.08 ± 0.08 (p=0.06, d=-0.31) To Share or Not To Share: An Extensive Appraisal of Weight-Sharing; Appendix Figure 1 .  ...

Assessing socioeconomic effects on different sized populations: To weight or not to weight?

N Frohlich
2001 Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health  
It is argued that the correct answer to that question turns on some deep epistemological issues that have been little considered in the public health literature.  ...  In particular, when the aggregated units make sense, theoretically, as units, it is more appropriate to carry out the analyses without weighting by the size of the units.  ...  The authors would like to thank Noralou Roos, David Friesen and Leonard MacWilliam for their help in the initial project whence this argument sprung.  ...

Where is the Information in a Deep Neural Network? [article]

Alessandro Achille, Giovanni Paolini, Stefano Soatto
2020 arXiv   pre-print
How this information affects the response of the network to future data remains largely an open question.  ...  We establish a novel relation between the information in the weights and the effective information in the activations, and use this result to show that models with low (information) complexity not only  ...  We remind the reader that this is an arbitrary choice and does not imply or require that the actual distributions of the weights, if one exists, be Gaussian or isotropic.  ...

Where is the system?

Sylvain Benoit
2014 International Economics  
The aim of this paper is to emphasize the importance of determining the system aggregate level (global, european or national) when dealing with systemic risk.  ...  This issue is central when focusing on Europe where each country should identify its D-SIBs whereas the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) tags G-SIBs, not only European banks.  ...  Accordingly, considering global or domestic systemically important banks (G-or D-SIBs) does not lead to the same conclusions and raises numerous of questions.  ...

1979 Symposium - International astronomical union  
The results have not been satisfactory, and we have some important evidence that the catalogue equinox of the FK4 is not identical with the "dynamical equinox".  ...  The intersection of the equator and the ecliptic, the dynamical equinox, is therefore in motion.  ...  This work must be considered as an important manual in this field, in particular, since the criteria to be fulfilled by the observations either were not suffi ciently known from the beginning or were not  ...
