The R programming language already offers a general purpose package for piping function output to new functions, magrittr. The aim of this project is to provide a similar syntax, but much more focused on machine learning and utilizing a large number of preprocessing methods that are available in other R packages. For comparison, the Python machine learning toolbox Scikit learn offers Pipeline and FeatureUnion functions to chain multiple estimators and transformer functions into one call. As stated in their documentation the main advantage is that only one call to fit and predict is required for a complete pipeline fit and it is possible to optimize jointly over the whole space of hyperparameters.


GE Wants To Be The Next Artificial Intelligence Powerhouse

#artificialintelligence

When you hear the term "artificial intelligence," you may think of tech giants Amazon, Google, IBM, Microsoft, or Facebook. Industrial powerhouse General Electric is now aiming to be included on that short list. It may not have a chipper digital assistant like Cortana or Alexa. It won't sort through selfies, but it will look through X-rays. It won't recommend movies, but it will suggest how to care for a diesel locomotive. Today, GE announced a pair of acquisitions and new services that will bring machine learning AI to the kinds of products it's known for, including planes, trains, X-ray machines, and power plants.

The Legal Case for Blocking the Dakota Access Pipeline

The Atlantic

As part of the ongoing trial, the legal team for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe submitted documents to the court last Friday that certified one of their main claims in the case: that the pipeline will pass through and likely destroy Native burial sites and sacred places.
