From the BBC on why and how people disappear in Japan and start new lives:
In Japan, these people are sometimes referred to as “jouhatsu”. That’s the Japanese word for “evaporation”, but it also refers to people who vanish on purpose into thin air, and continue to conceal their whereabouts – potentially for years, even decades.
And finally, a great presentation for interested newbies on machine learning and the algorithms behind it.
