Reviewing 2018 and Previewing 2019


Kaggle Kernels is our hosted data science environment. It allows our users to author, execute, and share code written in Python and R. Kaggle Kernels entered 2018 as a data science scratchpad. In 2018, we added key pieces of functionality that make it a powerful environment. This includes the ability to use a GPU backend and collaborate with other users. We had 346K users author kernels in 2018, up 3.1x from 111K in 2017.

Simply deep learning: an effortless introduction – Towards Data Science


This article is part of the Intro to Deep Learning: Neural Networks for Novices, Newbies, and Neophytes Series. Let's start with a quick recap from part 1 for anyone who hasn't looked at it: At a very basic level, deep learning is a machine learning technique. It teaches a computer to filter inputs through layers to learn how to predict and classify information. Observations can be in the form of images, text, or sound. The inspiration for deep learning is the way that the human brain filters information. Its purpose is to mimic how the human brain works to create some real magic. Deep learning attempts to mimic the activity in layers of neurons in the neocortex.

Introducing Feast: an open source feature store for machine learning Google Cloud Blog


To operate machine learning systems at scale, teams need to have access to a wealth of feature data to both train their models, as well as to serve them in production. GO-JEK and Google Cloud are pleased to announce the release of Feast, an open source feature store that allows teams to manage, store, and discover features for use in machine learning projects. Developed jointly by GO-JEK and Google Cloud, Feast aims to solve a set of common challenges facing machine learning engineering teams by becoming an open, extensible, unified platform for feature storage. It gives teams the ability to define and publish features to this unified store, which in turn facilitates discovery and feature reuse across machine learning projects. "Feast is an essential component in building end-to-end machine learning systems at GO-JEK," says Peter Richens, Senior Data Scientist at GO-JEK, "we are very excited to release it to the open source community. We worked closely with Google Cloud in the design and development of the product, and this has yielded a robust system for the management of machine learning features, all the way from idea to production."

Machine Learning: End-to-End guide for Java developers – The world's largest ebook library


This course is the right resource for anyone with some knowledge of Java programming who wants to get started with Data Science and Machine learning as quickly as possible. If you want to gain meaningful insights from big data and develop intelligent applications using Java, this course is also a must-have. Machine Learning is one of the core area of Artificial Intelligence where computers are trained to self-learn, grow, change, and develop on their own without being explicitly programmed. This course demonstrates complex data extraction and statistical analysis techniques supported by Java, applying various machine learning methods, exploring machine learning sub-domains, and exploring real-world use cases such as recommendation systems, fraud detection, natural language processing, and more, using Java programming. The course begins with an introduction to data science and basic data science tasks such as data collection, data cleaning, data analysis, and data visualization.

Top 5 Resources for Data Science and Machine Learning


Data is the new oil. And Machine Learning is the fire. Whoever controls these two will control the world. No, the above is not some pompous phrase picked up from a dystopian novel. The new world order is all about collecting vast amounts of relevant data and processing it into actionable insights -- something the human race hasn't been able to do in history.

Is Deep Learning Already Hitting its Limitations? – Towards Data Science


Many believed an algorithm would transcend humanity with cognitive awareness. Machines would discern and learn tasks without human intervention and replace workers in droves. They quite literally would be able to "think". Many people even raised the question whether we could have robots for spouses. But I am not talking about today.

Ten Machine Learning Algorithms You Should Know to Become a Data Scientist - ParallelDots


Let's say I am given an Excel sheet with data about various fruits and I have to tell which look like Apples. What I will do is ask a question "Which fruits are red and round?" and divide all fruits which answer yes and no to the question. Now, All Red and Round fruits might not be apples and all apples won't be red and round. So I will ask a question "Which fruits have red or yellow color hints on them? " on red and round fruits and will ask "Which fruits are green and round?" on not red and round fruits. Based on these questions I can tell with considerable accuracy which are apples. This cascade of questions is what a decision tree is. However, this is a decision tree based on my intuition.

Prediction of higher-selectivity catalysts by computer-driven workflow and machine learning


To demonstrate the viability of our method, we predicted reaction outcomes with substrate combinations and catalysts different from the training data and simulated a situation in which highly selective reactions had not been achieved. In the first demonstration, a model was constructed by using support vector machines and validated with three different external test sets. The first test set evaluated the ability of the model to predict the selectivity of only reactions forming new products with catalysts from the training set. The model performed well, with a mean absolute deviation (MAD) of 0.161 kcal/mol. Next, the same model was used to predict the selectivity of an external test set of catalysts with substrate combinations from the training set.
