People have taken to social media to post pictures of signs and art work bearing defiant messages of solidarity in the wake of the London Bridge attack. "London Bridge will never fall down" and "I love London" are just some of the slogans being shared alongside the hashtag #prayersforLondon. Cartoonist Lesco Griffe posted this illustration bearing the famous British motto, while novelist Tony Parsons was among those who posted this "quote of the day" sign from a London Tube station. Many Brits on Twitter also took exception to a report from the New York Times that the UK was "reeling" after being the victim of two terror attacks in two weeks. Author JK Rowling warned people not to "confuse grief with lack of courage", while others turned to photographs from the aftermath of the Blitz air raids in London during World War Two to show what they thought.
Seven people have been killed in central London after three men drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge, before launching a knife attack on people around Borough Market.

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.
