Machine Learning with SQL

#artificialintelligence

This post is about Machine Learning with SQL. It makes sense to build/run Machine Learning models where data stays -- in the database. Step by step info on how to get started. Python (and soon JavaScript with TensorFlow.js) is a dominant language for Machine Learning. There is a way to build/run Machine Learning models in SQL.


Machine Learning with SQL

#artificialintelligence

Python (and soon JavaScript with TensorFlow.js) is a dominant language for Machine Learning. There is a way to build/run Machine Learning models in SQL. There could be a benefit to run model training close to the database, where data stays. With SQL we can leverage strong data analysis out of the box and run algorithms without fetching data to the outside world (which could be an expensive operation in terms of performance, especially with large datasets). This post is to describe how to do Machine Learning in the database with SQL.

Paid Program: Shoppers Love High Tech

Reports of the retail industry's demise are greatly exaggerated. The sector will grow between 3.8 percent and 4.4 percent this year, driven by high consumer confidence and a robust economy, according to the National Retail Federation. What's more, retail employment continues to be robust, though it remains cyclical, the NRF reports. While retail is far from a dying industry, there's no doubt that the digital revolution is changing it dramatically. "I can either shop on my own couch or I can shop at the retailer's shelf--and I'm going to need a powerful reason to get off my couch," is the way Michael Forhez, an Oracle senior director of retail and consumer goods, sums up the challenge before brick-and-mortar stores.

And sure, these people can come off as a bit naïve sometimes, but admit it: There's always a part of you that's thinking, "What are they doing that I'm not?" Spoiler alert: Sometimes becoming happier is as simple as just *trying* to be happier -- as in, dedicating a few minutes each day to practicing optimism and gratitude. Corso.com, the company that brought you the productivity-boosting Mindful Notebook, just made that real easy with its new happiness-themed notebook.
