Find resources relevant to meta-analysis, effect sizes, and power analysis with this Minerazzi miner.
Build curated collections on these subjects.
The miner includes Bing and Google RSS News channels powered by our SPP tool.
Here is a python-based search engine with an implementation inspired on one of our papers at the old Mi Islita.com site, now a search engine on Puerto Rico.
This module replicates the miislita vector spaces from
"A Linear Algebra Approach to the Vector Space Model -- A Fast Track Tutorial"
by Dr. E. Garcia...
Great and positive accomplishment!
That tutorial is no longer at miislita.com, but was long ago moved to minerazzi.com. Find it here:
For other resources do a search for python in our IR miner at
For inquiries about that implementation, contact its author.
For other inquiries, applications, suggestions, drop me a line.
PS. Please note that Nullege.com itself is a search engine for finding python code. Here is a good example: http://nullege.com/codes/search/wx.calendar.CalendarCtrl
The Open Source Projects (OSP) miner at
has been updated and reindexed. Additional records will be added soon.
The miner also features news results from Bing, Google, and other sites.
Use it to build your own curated collection of open software or to access latest news on open projects from around the world.
In a recent post,
we mentioned a design pattern for easily cross-mapping all experimental variables from a given model. By applying the pattern to the Nernst Equation, we were able to develop the Standard Electrode Potentials Calculator which cross-maps all 4 experimental terms from said equation. This tool is available at
In this post we just want to mention that by applying the same design pattern to the Goldman-Hodgkin-Katz (GHK) Equation we were able to develop the Membrane Potentials Calculator, which cross-maps 12 experimental terms. This new tool is available now at
Examples on how to do the mapping of variables are given in the Suggested Exercises section of the tool.
Overall, we are confident that the patterns used in the design of these tools can be applied, across disciplines, to mathematical models consisting of more experimental variables.
The following complementary collections were reindexed and updated
Information Retrieval, http://www.minerazzi.com/irc
Data Structures & Algorithms, http://www.minerazzi.com/dsac
Both include RSS news channels to Bing, Google, MIT, and Arxiv so users can easily find news relevant to these collections.
The Domain Extractor is a new Minerazzi tool, available now at
The tool extracts domains and subdomains from up to 10,000 URLs at once. Larger sets are resized to conform to this limit. This is done to avoid browser crashes.
From the input set, the Domain Extractor returns a set consisting of domains and subdomains. The results are deduplicated and sorted in alphabetical order
The tool comes handy when one wants to extract chunks consisting of 10,000 domains from databases or other sources.
It can be conveniently used in combinations of other of our tools, like
The FQU Bot
Simple, light, but a powerful toy/tool: The Domain Extractor can be used as part of a crawling strategy: Once domains and subdomains are extracted, the chunks of URLs can be sent to a queue for crawlers to revisit them.
Another application consists in querying a search engine, extract URLs from its results page and then process them through the tool.
There might be other applications, but the above can give you an idea of how handy the tool can be.
This post is part of a series of blog posts on Mind Retrieval (MR) that we started long time ago.
Another step closer to MR is provided below:
The abstract states and quote
“Despite partial success, communication has remained impossible for persons suffering from complete motor paralysis but intact cognitive and emotional processing, a state called complete locked-in state (CLIS). Based on a motor learning theoretical context and on the failure of neuroelectric brain–computer interface (BCI) communication attempts in CLIS, we here report BCI communication using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and an implicit attentional processing procedure. Four patients suffering from advanced amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)—two of them in permanent CLIS and two entering the CLIS without reliable means of communication—learned to answer personal questions with known answers and open questions all requiring a “yes” or “no” thought using frontocentral oxygenation changes measured with fNIRS. Three patients completed more than 46 sessions spread over several weeks, and one patient (patient W) completed 20 sessions. Online fNIRS classification of personal questions with known answers and open questions using linear support vector machine (SVM) resulted in an above-chance-level correct response rate over 70%. Electroencephalographic oscillations and electrooculographic signals did not exceed the chance-level threshold for correct communication despite occasional differences between the physiological signals representing a “yes” or “no” response. However, electroencephalogram (EEG) changes in the theta-frequency band correlated with inferior communication performance, probably because of decreased vigilance and attention. If replicated with ALS patients in CLIS, these positive results could indicate the first step towards abolition of complete locked-in states, at least for ALS.”

The Wyss Center also has a neurotech challenge:
so MR going mainstream is a matter of time.
As mentioned many times before, Mind Retrieval is a promisory information retrieval paradigm. See our previous posts on this topic below:
We have added a new algorithm to the MUST tool, available at
The tool now automatically detects bogus http status code responses. These types of response codes are frequently designed, though not always, to game crawlers and automated header request tools; i.e., to believe that a resource is not accessible.
For instance, test the following with our tool and as given:
That Quantum Computing and Searching is the next Information Security (IS) and Information Retrieval (IR) frontier is more than clear. According to Phys.org and quote
“The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is officially asking the public for help heading off a looming threat to information security: quantum computers, which could potentially break the encryption codes used to protect privacy in digital systems. NIST is requesting methods and strategies from the world’s cryptographers, with the deadline less than a year away.”

Now that Quantum Computers and Quantum Searches are at a corner near you, the implications are many: from search marketing to search apps, from social grids, to quantum PCs, from big challenges to big data, from quantum retrieval to mind retrieval: The sky is the limit. Back in 2013 we mentioned quantum searches in the context of XOR/XNOR searches.
A miner on quantum searches will soon be available at http://www.minerazzi.com. In the meantime, see some useful links below:
