Data Scientist Resume Projects – Stats and Bots

@machinelearnbot

This means that you need to formulate the problem, design the solution, find the data, master the technology, build a machine learning model, evaluate the quality, and maybe wrap it into a simple UI. One of the classic data science problems is a spam detection. You can train a model for detecting spam emails, spam messages, and spam user comments to hide them in browser. ML problem: image recognition, image classification, transfer learning Algorithms: convolutional neural networks Technologies: keras, lasagne, Instagram API(or external libraries e.g.


Indexing Faces on Instagram

@machinelearnbot

I just wanted to build something cool using machine learning on a bunch of public images. Essentially building a database of indexed faces ( ( ʖ( ʖ)ʖ)). The coin sorting machine can measure the coins' size and weight, and will sort coins of similar size and weight into one pile. FaceNet is doing exactly the same thing, except it's measuring the high level abstract features of the images (position of mouth, eyes, nose), and not low level concrete features (skin color, hair color, etc) Because of the Triplet Loss, it can be assumed that faces with similar features will have a similar embedding.

Apple's challenge: We're stuck in an app rut

USATODAY

A handful really have been lifechanging, and you can count them on one hand: transportation apps such as Uber and Lyft, navigation favorites Google Maps and Waze, mobile-only social networks Snapchat and Instagram, and relationship tools such as Tinder. In fact, with all the talk about apps this week, a quick glance at the App Store charts shows the same old-timers atop the list -- YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook Messenger, Bitmoji, Facebook and Google Maps. But the apps they download are the same old ones: Uber, Lyft, Facebook Messenger, Waze, Twitter, Shazam, Fun Run 2 and Candy Crush. Meet Yuma Soerianto, the young 10-year-old app developer from Australia flown to San Francisco to learn about apps at Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference.


GoPro isn't worried about Snapchat Spectacles at all

Mashable

As we rode our bikes on a winding scenic trail at the Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado, I picked CEO Nick Woodman's brain on Spectacles, and Snapchat and Instagram Stories -- products GoPro is now competing head-on with in the smartphone age. He's extremely passionate about what GoPro represents and isn't afraid to admit the company's made mistakes, like failing to connect GoPros with smartphones and online video platforms sooner. Obviously, GoPro's CEO is going to toot the merits of its action cameras and software -- the company's launching a new GoPro app later this summer with a feature called "QuikStories" that'll automatically download and save GoPro footage to your phone and then automatically create an edited video for you -- but Woodman isn't worried about the competition. He's very much of the "Good artists copy; great artists steal" quote attributed to Pablo Picasso that Steve Jobs famously echoed into geek minds.

Is that Skype or Snapchat? New Skype design blurs line

USATODAY

And yes, Highlights appears to be Skype's answer to the much-copied Snapchat Stories feature. Worth noting: Highlights on Skype are visible to your followers for seven days, compared to the 24 hours after which a Snapchat Stories photo and video gallery disappear. Squiggly lines indicated activity on Skype. Skype is also leveraging the Cortana assistant, Bing search engine and relying on third party chat bots and add-ins, from the likes of BigOven, Giphy, YouTube, and Upworthy.


Skype under fire for 'copying' Snapchat with new revamp

Daily Mail

Microsoft announced a range of new features for Skype, including a'Highlights' feature which lets users post temporary photos and videos The new feature has drawn comparisons to Snapchat's Stories feature, which has previously inspired updates to Facebook and Instagram. Skype has been given a radical makeover with a host of features borrowed from Snapchat, including an add-on called'Highlights' that lets users share temporary pictures and videos Highlights is a key feature included in the revamp of Skype, which has not had a radical facelift like this since it introduced video calls in 2006. Skype has come under fire for'copying' Snapchat - which also lets customers scroll through images and videos shot by other users (pictured) Both apps let users layer their pictures and videos with pictures, emoji and coloured text. And just earlier this month, Facebook added Snapchat-like animated filters to Facebook Live in Ireland.
