Merging CI and AI - it can be done - Continuous Lifecycle London


Whenever change happens, there's always one department that tries to claim that it won't work for them. AI teams are the latest to get away with this, hiding behind differences in how research is done to shrug off the requirements of agile development, automated testing and continuous integration. I've been working with my team to embed CI even during the initial stages of deep learning and reaped the rewards of improved efficiency for both research and development. It is possible to create a data science development pipeline and I'll discuss not only how I've got this set up, but also how I've had to flex the processes to make it work for all involved.

Last year more people leaving London moved to Birmingham than any other UK city. More than 6,000 people moved from the capital to Birmingham in 2015 with reasons such as the cost of housing being behind the trip up the M40.

London house prices drop at the fastest pace since 2009

The Japan Times

LONDON – London house prices are falling at the fastest pace since the depths of the recession almost a decade ago, with the capital's most expensive areas seeing the biggest declines. Average prices fell to £593,396 ($820,000) in January, an annual decline of 2.6 percent, according to a report published by Acadata on Monday. The city will be the weakest performing market in the country over the next five years, said Lucian Cook, head of residential research at broker Savills Plc, as a decade of soaring prices means London's more exposed to political and economic uncertainty, the prospect of interest rate increases and mortgage loan limits. Weakness in prime property in the U.K. capital in recent years -- partly due to tax changes -- is rippling out to other locations in the city and around the Southeast. London prices fell 0.8 percent in January alone, according to Acadata, which publishes detailed regional data with a one-month lag.
