Convolution in 1d with a "small" filter:
Imagine you have an array of numbers. Every number is replaced with a new number computed from the numbers that are "close by" in the array. Specifically it's computed as a linear combination of them. The same linear combination is used at all positions of the array.

Convolution in 2d with a "small" filter
Now instead of just a few numbers before and after, you take a whole rectangle around your number. Again you weight the numbers together according to a fixed set of weights.

Convolution can be seen as multiplication in fourierspace (frequency space)

>> No.11143728

>i don't think trying to 'understand' something far beyond what is immediately necessary is very helpful,

with the way the question is stated, the odds would in fact be 2/3

did you randomly come to determine the gender of one of the two children? (e.g. you visited the family’s household and a girl answered the door)
or was the outcome of an event that relied on only one of the children being female positive? (e.g. you asked the father if he had at least one daughter, and he said yes, or you scoped the clearly menopausal mother purchasing tampons the other day)

>The Global Infrasound Acoustic Monitoring Network
>This system is comprised of 60 stations operating in 35 countries that monitor low-frequency pressure waves in the atmosphere. Although built for the purpose of detecting nuclear explosions in support of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, it reportedly also has the ability to detect and track bolides and other objects transiting the atmosphere. For example, US researchers have recently established that this system can monitor missile launches. There have long been rumors suggesting that environmental scientists participating in CIA’s experimental MEDEA program (an effort to determine if US intelligence systems could further the scientific understanding of climate change) detected anomalous objects entering earth’s atmosphere then maneuvering at high speeds.

>Although UAPs generally seem to lack exhaust plumes or strong heat signatures, there are numerous reports in the open source literature claiming that the SBIRs system has recorded unidentified objects that entered earth's atmosphere but, unlike meteors, then maneuvered or changed direction.

>Moreover, the deck logs of the USS Princeton for November 2004 are also strangely and inexplicably missing from the National Archives, raising the extraordinary possibility that some secretive USG component is working to conceal UAP incidents and information.

>Finally, if these are vehicles created by another species there is the wholly unprecedented challenge of seeking to study an intelligence greater than our own that apparently does not wish to communicate or be understood.
