Whilst most businesses don’t earn revenue by processing data, they do spend a large amount of their hard earned revenue in manually processing data, validating it and ultimately performing manual tasks that don’t scale. But at what point does this manual involvement become a burden of cost upon your business?
This article is part of a media partnership with PyData Berlin, a group helping support open-source data science libraries and tools. To learn more about this topic, please consider attending our fourth annual PyData Berlin conference on June 30-July 2, 2017. Matti Lyra and other experts will be giving talks
R is ubiquitous in the machine learning community. Its ecosystem of more than 8,000 packages makes it the Swiss Army knife of modeling applications. Similarly, Apache Spark has rapidly become the big data platform of choice for data scientists. Its ability to perform calculations relatively quickly (due to features like in-memory
For people in the know, machine learning is old hat. Even so, it’s set to become the data buzzword of the year — for a rather mundane reason. When things get complex, people expect technology to ‘automagically’ solve the problem. Whether it’s automated financial product consultation or shopping in the supermarket of
The Estimators API in tf.contrib.learn (See tutorial here) is a very convenient way to get started using TensorFlow. The really cool thing from my perspective about the Estimators API is that using it is a very easy way to create distributed TensorFlow models. Many of the TensorFlow samples that you
As buzzwords become ubiquitous they become easier to tune out. We’ve finely honed this defense mechanism, for good purpose. It’s better to focus on what’s in front of us than the flavor of the week. CRISPR might change our lives, but knowing how it works doesn’t help you. VR could
