Neural Networks form the foundation for Deep Learning, the technique AlphaGo used with Reinforcement Learning (RL) to beat a Go master. In this article, we’ll explain how the basics of neural networks work.
Reinforcement Learning (RL) is the driving algorithm behind AlphaGo, the machine the beat a Go master. In this article, we explore how the components of an RL system come together in an algorithm that is able to learn.
Reinforcement Learning (RL) is at the heart of DeepMind’s Go playing machine. In the second article in this series, we’ll explain what RL is, and why it represents a break from mainstream machine learning.
The long path to DevOps enlightenment begins with the Developer’s IDE: Here’s how to get started on the journey. In this article we walk through the steps for automating the creation of a virtual development environment.
Cloud-computing makes possible a new breed of applications that are much more robust and highly tolerant to change. Here are 10 key architectural considerations when developing applications born in the cloud.
Emerging technologies like iBeacon and Near Field Communication (NFC) have opened up the possibilities for unparalleled in-store interactivity with shoppers. The key is staying focused on using this new tech to actually enhance the shopping experience for the customer.
A wave of high profile security breaches was recently discovered, potentially affecting millions of people. Each attack had a unique footprint, giving us an interesting glimpse into the scary world of cyber crime.
Dan Geer, the top security chief at the CIA’s VC firm In-Q-Tel, gave a thought provoking keynote at this year’s Black Hat security conference, arguing that thoughtful government regulation was the best hope for shoring up our cyber defense. He may just be right.
Project management as it’s practiced today is a throwback from the industrial revolution and it hinders innovation in today’s fast-paced, digitally-disruptive world. Agile project management is its logical successor, but managers need to embrace it as more than just a software methodology.
Many core business practices commonplace today are rooted in techniques developed during the turn of the twentieth century and are hindering companies from staying competitive in a business environment characterized by extreme uncertainty.
Technological change is increasing at a such crazy pace, the disrupters themselves are facing existential threats from new upstarts. How can established companies hope to compete in this new world of constant change?
