Local Futures works to renew ecological, social and spiritual well-being by promoting a systemic shift towards economic localization.
A pioneer of the new economy movement, Local Futures has been raising awareness for four decades about the need to shift direction – away from dependence on global monopolies, and towards decentralized, regional economies.
The Gemba Academy team operates out of offices in California and Texas. We work hard to practice what we preach, especially with regards to the "respect for people" principle of lean, and have developed an innovative Culture Code.
The founding partners of Gemba Academy come with lean consulting, lean and six sigma training, and executive level lean transformation experience. This is the Gemba Academy difference: we're lean and six sigma experts first, who then learned how to create great training videos.
We work at the intersection of evidence-informed practice and user-centred design. We have deep respect for both evidence and the experience and expertise of practitioners, young people and families. We think public systems and services can be more impactful when they are considered together.
ImageNet is an image database organized according to the WordNet hierarchy (currently only the nouns), in which each node of the hierarchy is depicted by hundreds and thousands of images. Currently we have an average of over five hundred images per node. We hope ImageNet will become a useful resource for researchers, educators, students and all of you who share our passion for pictures.
