Genetic study improves lifespan predictions and scientific understanding of aging — ScienceDaily

By studying the effect of genetic variations on lifespan across the human genome, researchers have devised a way to estimate whether an individual can expect to live longer or shorter than average, and have advanced scientific understanding of the diseases and cellular pathways involved in aging. Their findings were presented at the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) 2018 Annual Meeting in San Diego, Calif. Presenting author Paul Timmers, MRes, a graduate student at the University of Edinburgh, and an…

Recap: LinkedIn NYC Machine Learning and Data Science Meetup

Perspective API, the tool developed by Google, is an open source project aiming to improve participation and the quality of online discussion at scale. It uses a convolutional neural network (CNN) on both the word and sentence level to determine how close a sentence is to the toxic comments in the training set, and to calculate a score in relation to its toxicity. Currently it has three usages: moderation helps editors process comments faster by quickly identifying the toxic elements;…

MobileLab: Prevent mobile performance regressions

Early in our mobile optimization efforts, each fix meant big leaps in performance improvement. Today, our apps are optimized so much that our time is best spent preventing tiny regressions that, if shipped, could cause our progress to backslide. At Facebook’s scale, that means checking thousands of commits per day to find regressions as tiny as 1 percent. Previous methods worked well for spotting large performance changes, but to refine the accuracy, we had to build a new system, called…
