Effective use of RevoScaleR Transformations
As mentioned previously, several important RevoScaleR functions include provisions for transforming data within the function itself, rather than require separate steps in addition to the function call. This is advantageous, since it means that large datasets can be read once instead of having to be read repeatedly by several functions. rxImport, rxDataStep, and rxSplit support […]
5 best practices to perform data wrangling with Python
Data wrangling is the process of cleaning and structuring complex data sets for easy analysis and making speedy decisions in less time. Due to the internet explosion and the huge trove of IoT devices there is a massive availability of data, at present. However, this data is most often in its raw form and includes a lot […]
Facial Recognition Is Now Easy to Implement: What Does That Imply?
Movies and television shows are full of scenes where individuals are recognized in huge crowds using facial recognition software. Until recently, some of those seemed far-fetched or maybe prohibitively expensive. That is no longer the case. Sahil Chinoy described a facial recognition demonstration in The New York Times.

What is the Carbon Footprint of AI and Deep Learning?
Most of the recent breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence are driven by data and computation. What is essentially missing is the energy cost. Most large AI networks require huge number of training data to ensure accuracy. However, these accuracy improvements depend on the availability of exceptionally large computational resources. The larger the computation resource, the more energy it consumes. This […]
