Passing the Dreaded Data Science Take-Home Assignment
How many times have you seen these exact words? Hopefully not much in your data science interview process. But if you’re one of most data scientists starting out looking for a job, you’ll find…
A deep learning framework for neuroscience
A deep network is best understood in terms of components used to design it—objective functions, architecture and learning rules—rather than unit-by-unit computation. Richards et al. argue that this inspires fruitful approaches to systems neuroscience.
How much faster is Redis at storing a blob of JSON compared to PostgreSQL?
tl;dr; Redis is 16 times faster at reading these JSON blobs.*
An important quantum algorithm may actually be a property of nature
Evidence that quantum searches are an ordinary feature of electron behavior may explain the genetic code, one of the greatest puzzles in biology.
