    Claude Monet's Nymphéas or Water Lilies Maximum Entropy Toolkit, a  machine learning technique.


    CLAUDE MONET, from 1900 to 1926, painted hundreds of pictures of the pond of his flower garden, capturing its fleeting reflections of sun and shadow, as well as the islands of water lilies that blossomed on its surface. These paintings, represent a remarkable advance towards modernism and initiated the revolution of abstraction.


    Maxent Entropy Model This piece of software, written by Le Zhang, PhD, University of Edinburgh, is a general purpose machine learning framework that has proved to be highly expressive and powerful in statistical natural language processing, statistical physics, computer vision and many other fields.
