Another Online Courses

Well, well, well…
It has been some time since I wrote the last blog post. And I won’t make the same mistake promising that I will write more. Not like there is nothing happening in my life. I recently finished two online courses and I am going to give you a review of them. Rather there is happening so many things that I just have to put my focus into different things. Or I am just being lazy – pick your excuse.

Here is a quick review of Cryptography and AI online courses

MOOCs — Massive Open Online Courses

The MOOCs (massive open online courses) are becoming a common thing, yet there are some doubts about them. To date, I’ve fully—with all assignments and exams—completed three courses. Yes, I finished another great course called Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science from MIT (on edX). But how to choose suitable courses? And is it worth taking them? And should we purchase the certificates from them?

Widgets for Jupyter, ipwigdets

I have worked with Jupyter for a while and I must say that it is a pretty unique experience. The ability to get outputs right away and visualize the data right beneath the code create a great environment for data analysis. And you can also install Vim key binding 😉. But there is even more! There are widgets — buttons, sliders, drop-down menus, and more — that allows interactive interactions and make your code even more fun. For example, I use widgets for creating simple UI for classifying images and creating a data set.

LaTeX? Maybe Next Time

It is true! I am continuing with my weekly blog posts about my Machine Learning project. For the competition I have to write documentation 30 standard pages long. And this week it started!

2016

Happy New Year! ?
It was an awesome year and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has to bring. Meanwhile, let’s review the 2016 year and what is going on right now. As motivation, here is the progress of unique visitors over last year (numbers are hidden ?).

Jupyter Notebook with OpenCV on Android, Machine Learning

Seriously! I successfully installed Jupyter Notebook with OpenCV on my Android NO-ROOT tablet. This may sound crazy and useless, but I why not? The performance of the tablets these days is exaggerated — thanks game industry — so let’s use it for something meaningful. Personally, I have a solid tablet, but I never really used it. And that will change!

Tutorial is up to date with GNURoot Debian app version 0.6.8.

Don’t get stuck, Machine Learning

I heard a lot of stories about people, even whole teams, who works on machine learning problems, getting stuck for whole years trying to solve the problem. And then somebody else came using simple techniques and get much better results! There isn’t any definite way how to overcome such freezes, but we can learn from others mistakes.

Open Source, Memory King

You can love it, you can hate it, but no matter what you think about it, it will be there. As you may know the Memory King is also open source and you can find it on GitHub. And in todays blog post I will discuss what it means for me and why I love it.

Open-source software (OSS) is computer software with its source code made available with a license in which the copyright holder provides the rights to study, change, and distribute the software to anyone and for any purpose.

First Steps, Machine Learning

Let’s start our machine learning journey! This week I started the real work on the project. For those who don’t know, my project will be kind of OCR project, so we will be dealing with images, computer vision, and all sorts of interesting problems. And in this episode we will start getting ready for the machine learning.

Dashboard Continued, Memory King

Do you wonder what makes dashboard a great dashboard? Me too, so let’s talk about it. In the last blog post about dashboard I figure out how to plot the data, but the real question is which data should I plot and how to structure the whole dashboard.

Environment Setup, Machine Learning

Let’s start with something easy—environment setup. Truly, there is not much to set up, yet if you are working on your first machine learning project, you will have to make a few decisions. So, let’s review the tools that I will be using in this project.

Tools for Electron, Memory King

Last week I spent exploring a wide range of electron extensions. I didn’t work on the GUI. So, today it will be purely about these electron extensions. I came across this GitHub repository: electron-awesome where you can find a lot of useful resources. And as you can guess, I couldn’t resist and I add some of these tools 😀 .

Big Announcement, Machine Learning

Today, I am starting a new series! You may notice that I recently finished a Machine Learning course on Coursera (definitely recommend it). But here comes the real challenge, put my skill into real use! I’m going to participate in the local project competition so-called SOČ (i.e. high school professional activity). So, I’m starting a new series about my project related to the machine learning.
