First artificial enzyme created with two non-biological groups
Scientists at the University of Groningen turned a non-enzymatic protein into a new, artificial enzyme by adding two abiological catalytic components: an unnatural amino acid and a catalytic copper complex. This is the first time that an enzyme has been created using two non-biological components to…
How to run machine learning at scale — without going broke
Machine learning is computationally expensive — and because serving real-time predictions means running your ML models in the cloud, that computational expense translates into real dollars. Put…

Ruthless Quotas at Amazon Are Maiming Employees
Speedy robots. Constant surveillance. Ruthless quotas. A new investigation into why the injury rate for Amazon’s warehouse workers is sky-high.
Constraint Solving with Minizinc • Hillel Wayne
This is part one of a two-part article. Part two is here.A while back somebody told me to check out MiniZinc. Eventually I did and really enjoyed it, so figured I’d write about it here. This is actually going to be a two part article. Right now we’re talking about what it is and how it works, and i…
How to Actually Use ML in Production: Reading Comprehension
Alan Turing’s famous imitation game—now formalized as the Turing Test, one of the most popular “tests” of artificial intelligence—was simply a test of whether or not a machine could communicate like…
Here’s how to make Pandas Iteration 150x Faster
For some time now I’ve been questioning Python’s ability to do stuff fast. Let’s face it, there’s a lot of trash talk about Python’s speed when compared to other languages — like C or Go. Now, I’ve…
