Hi Everyone! Sorry about being a bit quiet on the forums recently, but things have been a bit hectic with me submitting another paper, getting going for the new semester, and traveling to Munich for this years e-Science conference! I'm currently in Munich, and Kris Zarns (a PhD student who works on DNA@Home) will be joining me later today.

I'll be presenting a paper on Wildlife@Home on Tuesday (A Comparison of Background Subtraction Algorithms for Detecting Avian Nesting Events in Uncontrolled Outdoor Video), and Kris will be presenting a paper on DNA@Home ( Searching the Human Genome for Snail and Slug With DNA@Home). So we're really excited to have a lot to do this year at e-Science, which wouldn't be possible without all of your help!

Once I get back next Friday, I'll be working with Lindsey to update some of the Climate Tweets project pages and get the validator working. We had a little bit of miscommunication and it looks like the tweets have only been looked at once per tweet, so that's why validation has been held up. I had no tweet classifications to compare against each other!

I'm also hoping to release a new image classifying interface for Wildlife@Home, which we have a few million images taken by motion sensor cameras in the Hudson Bay in Canada, and another ~50,000 from North Dakota. Plus another ~100,000 aerial images taken by UAV! So there's a lot in the works. Will keep everyone posted!

First URL looks broken, linked to DNA paper.

I think correctly:
