A documentary on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who left bureaucracy to become a social activist and then plunged into the rough-and-tumble of politics, will hit theatres on November 17. Global media giant Vice has acquired the biographical film, "An Insignificant Man", for a world-wide release. Vice has announced it will now be partnering with producer Anand Gandhis Memesys Lab in releasing the film widely, in India and internationally, on November 17, a press release issued here said. Directed by Khushboo Ranka and Vina Shukla, "An Insignificant Man" is a non-fiction political thriller that chronicles the rise of Kejriwal from a social activist to a politician, it said.

"I first saw the An Insignificant Man at TIFF in 2016 and I came away thinking it was the best doc (documentary) about ...

Xi presses overhaul, two Generals removed 11.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
He was one of China's most prominent commanders, with hopes of rising higher. So when Gen. Fang Fenghui disappeared from public view, it sent a clear warning to the top leaders of the People's Liberation Army: President Xi Jinping was not done shaking up their once-unassailable ranks. Fang, the chief of the army's Joint Staff Department, was not the only military leader to fall ahead of next week's Communist Party Congress. Gen. Zhang Yang, the director of the military's political department, also vanished from sight. Their names have not appeared in the Chinese news media for more than a month, when their successors were announced with no fanfare. Removing the two generals was the latest step by Xi to strengthen his grip on the military, a pillar of Communist Party power. On the eve of the party Congress, which will kick off his second five-year term as the nation's leader, he seems to have concluded that he must exert greater control to remake the country's armed forces into a power worthy of China's ...

Accelerating chemical simulations 9.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
CHEMICAL FINGERPRINTS Drastic advances in research of artificial intelligence have led to a wide range of fascinating developments in this area over the last decade. One such is the infrared spectroscopy, which is one of the most valuable experimental methods that was able to gain insight into the world of molecules. Infrared spectra are chemical fingerprints that provide information on the composition and properties of substances and materials. While quantum chemical calculations in principle enable extremely precise prediction of infrared spectra, their applicability in practice is made difficult by the high computational effort needed. For this reason, reliable infrared spectra can only be calculated for relatively small chemical systems. Researchers have now found a way to accelerate these simulations using artificial intelligence. For this purpose, so-called artificial neural networks are used. These are able to learn the complex quantum mechanical relationships. This way, scientists can carry out ...
