Four questions to help accurately scope analytics engineering project - KDnuggets
Being really good at scoping analytics projects is crucial for team productivity and profitability. You can consistently deliver on time if you work out the issue first, and these four questions can help you prepare.
Functional RL with Keras and Tensorflow Eager
In this blog post, we explore a functional paradigm for implementing reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms. The paradigm will be that developers write the numerics of their algorithm as…

Scientists finally find superconductivity in place they have been looking for decades
Researchers at Stanford University and the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory say they have found the first, long-sought proof that a decades-old scientific model of material behavior can be used to simulate and understand high-temperature superconductivity ­- an important s…
