Cloud Computing Advantages For Financial Service Companies

Cloud computing gained a lot of prominence in the IT industry so it should be no surprise to see that financial service firms are now embracing it. The only problem was security flaws. Since now we have security at an all-time high, we should all be aware of the various advantages gained by financial services that decide to use cloud computing. Increased Security One thing that is a paradox for many but that is reality is that cloud computing can…

How LinkedIn Uses Data to Improve Video Performance

At LinkedIn, we use data to improve our members’ experiences while using our site. On the video team, we value metrics that yield insight on how long our videos take to load, why certain videos draw more attention than others, and how our members tend to interact with videos across web, iOS, and Android. In short, the various data points collected during video playback on LinkedIn are leveraged to drive powerful improvements in video performance. Technical terms This post will…

Manifold: A Model-Agnostic Visual Debugging Tool for Machine Learning at Uber

By Lezhi Li and Yang Wang Machine learning (ML) is widely used across the Uber platform to support intelligent decision making and forecasting for features such as ETA prediction and fraud detection. For optimal results, we invest a lot of resources in developing accurate predictive ML models. In fact, it’s typical for practitioners to devote 20 percent of their effort into building initial working models, and 80 percent of their effort improving model performance in what is known as the…

Rethinking data center design for Singapore

LT CLAY In September, we broke ground on our new data center in Singapore, our first custom-built data center in Asia. Planning a hyperscale data center for a small island nation presented new opportunities for both design innovation and efficiency. Joining our portfolio of hyperefficient facilities, the Singapore data center was designed from the ground up with features that minimize the use of land, energy, and water. When siting data centers, we look for locations with robust infrastructure, an excellent…

Our Donations for 2018 – Kickstarter Engineering

At Kickstarter, we use a lot of open-source software. We pledge in our PBC charter to support a more creative and equitable world, and that our operations will reflect our values. As part of that ethos, we try to do our share to support the open-source ecosystem by making a financial contribution to select projects. To choose these organizations, we surveyed all of our engineers asking for nominations. They were more than eager to help, and as a result we…

Binge eating and smoking linked to bullying and sexual abuse — ScienceDaily

People who ever suffered bullying or sexual abuse have a lower quality of life similar to those living with chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, depression or severe anxiety, a new study from the University of Adelaide has found. They are also far more likely to display harmful behaviours like smoking dependence and binge eating. The study, published in BMC Public Health, investigated around 3000 South Australians who took part in face-to-face interviews using self-labelling questions to measure the age…

New computer modeling approach could improve understanding of megathrust earthquakes — ScienceDaily

Years before the devastating Tohoku earthquake struck the coast of Japan in 2011, the Earth’s crust near the site of the quake was starting to stir. Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin are using computer models to investigate if tiny tremors detected near this site could be connected to the disaster itself. The research could help enhance scientists’ understanding of forces driving megathrust earthquakes — the world’s most powerful type of earthquake — and improve earthquake hazard assessment.…

SlideModel.com: Make Effective Presentations with 100% Editable Templates

In today’s time, the corporate world has become more dynamic than ever. From businesses of all sizes to start-ups, literally, everybody requires a great PowerPoint presentation to convey their goals. I’d be honest here, Microsoft’s PowerPoint can limit the creativity of a presentation maker. No matter how good you’re with design and colors, if you’re presented with the same set of themes, formatting options and fonts again & again, your audience might not like what you create. In this post,…

Mizzou team shines at computational protein prediction competition

MULTICOM utilizes deep learning computational technology to spot correlations in massive sets of amino acids and compares them to the spatial distances between them in order to compute their likely folding pattern. Photo by Thomas Kvistholt. Accurately predicting how protein sequences will fold into 3D structures is key to determining their biological function and essential in areas such as protein design, protein engineering, drug design, disease research, and precision medicine.

Introducing Square In-App Payments SDK – Square Corner Blog – Medium

It’s no surprise that mobile commerce continues to gain popularity. For example, in 2018, mobile accounted for 66% of sales during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. As we’ve built out the Square developer platform over the past few years, our developer community has been asking for the ability to take payments through Square natively within their mobile app running on a buyer’s device. We’ve listened to our community and worked tirelessly to deliver an in-app payments experience that truly lives…
