Reading Clocks using Neural Nets
I was really interested in an idea, which was to read the time from Analog Clock Images using Neural Nets. To do this task, I needed a dataset containing clock images, but there was not any dataset…
Learn Bash with this book of puzzles
Computers are both my hobby and my profession. I have about 10 of them scattered around my apartment, all running Linux (including my Macs). Since I enjoy upgrading my computers and my computer skills, when I came across Bash it out by Sylvain Leroux, I jumped on the chance to buy it. I use the comm…
Easy Data Analysis, Visualization and Modeling using Datasist (Part 1)
Perform easy and quick data analysis, visualization, cleaning and modeling with the datasist library in Python. (Part 1)
Scaling Laws for Neural Language Models
We study empirical scaling laws for language model performance on thecross-entropy loss. The loss scales as a power-law with model size, datasetsize, and the amount of compute used for training, with some trends spanningmore than seven orders of magnitude. Other architectural details such asnetw…
Use logzero for simple logging in Python
The logzero library makes logging as easy as a print statement, which is quite a feat of simplicity. I’m not sure whether logzero took its name to fit in with the series of “zero boilerplate” libraries like pygame-zero, GPIO Zero, and guizero, but it’s certainly in that category. It’s a Python libra…

Our attention spans are changing, and so must game design
The way players buy, and play, games is changing rapidly. It’s important that game design change as well, if companies want to survive in the modern market.
