5 Fantastic Things You Can Do at A Lightning Speed on a Mac!

Many people debate on whether they should take a Mac or opt for a PC when it comes to buying a new computer for their needs. Apple Mac users are happy with their choice, and they encourage PC users to switch to Mac for the obvious reasons that it is much better than a PC accordingly to their user experience. Experts say they are right to a great extent as there are many things that you can quickly do on…

Using Google Cloud Platform to Analyze Cloudflare Logs

We’re excited to announce that we now offer deep insights into your domain’s web traffic, working with Google Cloud Platform (GCP). While Cloudflare Enterprise customers always have had access to their logs, they previously had to rely on their own tools to process them, adding extra complexity and cost. Cloudflare logs provide real time insight into traffic, malicious activity, attack incidents, and infrastructure health checks. The output is used to help customers adjust their settings, manage costs and resources, and…

An Example Using NLP to Identify Similar Products |

At Wayfair, technology and data expertise enable data scientists to transform new web datasets into intelligent machine algorithms that re-imagine how traditional commerce works. In this post, we introduce how visual tools like Violin Plots amplify our data acumen to unlock deep insights. The savvy data scientist recognizes the value of a Violin Plot when engineering new model features. We share how this method is applied in an e-commerce example where fuzzy text matching systems are developed to identify similar…

Students fortify concrete by adding recycled plastic

“Our technology takes plastic out of the landfill, locks it up in concrete, and also uses less cement to make the concrete, which makes fewer carbon dioxide emissions,” says assistant professor Michael Short. Credit: MIT News Discarded plastic bottles could one day be used to build stronger, more flexible concrete structures, from sidewalks and street barriers, to buildings and bridges, according to a new study. MIT undergraduate students have found that, by exposing plastic flakes to small, harmless doses of…

How to Monkey-Patch the Linux Kernel

I have a weird setup. I type in Dvorak. But, when I hold ctrl or alt, my keyboard reverts to Qwerty. You see, the classic text-editing hotkeys, ctrl+Z, ctrl+X, ctrl+C, and ctrl+V are all located optimally for a Qwerty layout: next to the control key, easy to reach with your left hand while mousing with your right. In Dvorak, unfortunately, these hotkeys are scattered around mostly on the right half of the keyboard, making them much less convenient. Using Dvorak…

Engineering NullAway, Uber’s Open Source Tool for Detecting NPEs

Maintaining the reliability of Uber’s mobile apps is crucial to facilitating a seamless and enjoyable user experience. Alongside a robust plugin architecture, feature flags, and dynamic validation of external data, static analysis tools play a key role in ensuring high code reliability by detecting potential bugs before updates are shipped to users. Previously, Uber deployed third-party static analysis tools to detect potential NullPointerExceptions (NPE), a leading cause of app crashes, and maintain reliability in our Android codebase. However, as our…

Machine Learning Platform meetup – Netflix TechBlog – Medium

Recap of the Oct 2017 ML Platform meetup at Netflix HQ By Faisal Siddiqi Machine Learning is making fast inroads into many areas of business and is being employed in an increasingly widening array of commercial applications. At Netflix, ML has been used for several years on our Recommendations and Personalization problems. Over the last couple of years, ML has expanded into a wide range of newer applications here, such as Content Promotion, Content Price Modeling, Programmatic Marketing, Efficient Content Delivery,…

Uber’s Open Source Distributed Deep Learning Framework

Over the past few years, advances in deep learning have driven tremendous progress in image processing, speech recognition, and forecasting. At Uber, we apply deep learning across our business; from self-driving research to trip forecasting and fraud prevention, deep learning enables our engineers and data scientists to create better experiences for our users. TensorFlow has become a preferred deep learning library at Uber for a variety of reasons. To start, the framework is one of the most widely used open…

Uber’s Driverless Car Plans to Reinvent Riders’ Experience

Driverless cars are the future and we all know we are going to see a lot of them around. The level-4 driverless car could be a reality by 2025 while a fully autonomous car may take more time. Few among us may own them and many of us will be riding in a rented driverless Uber as the company is channelizing its R&D to build a robotic chauffeur. Also, Uber is not only working to install a driverless car computer…

Engineers could learn a lot from dance when designing urban transport

Credit: HelloRF Zcool/Shutterstock.com There is little more important for the sustainability of cities than the ways we move around them. With transportation estimated to account for 30% of energy consumption across the majority of the world’s most developed nations, reducing the necessity for energy-reliant vehicles is fundamental to addressing the environmental impact of mobility. But as cities become the predominant habitat for most people in the world, it is important to think about other kinds of sustainability too. The ways…
