3 common machine learning mistakes to avoid

I’m a big fan of cloud-based machine learning and deep learning, and AI in general. After all, you can’t be a geek without imagining having a conversation with an artificially intelligent being that can answer questions and carry out your bidding! That’s said, I’m also seeing cloud-based machine learning and deep learning misapplied over and… Continue reading 3 common machine learning mistakes to avoid

What is Julia? A fresh approach to numerical computing

Julia is a free open source, high-level, high-performance, dynamic programming language for numerical computing. It has the development convenience of a dynamic language with the performance of a compiled statically typed language, thanks in part to a JIT-compiler based on LLVM that generates native machine code, and in part to a design that implements type stability… Continue reading What is Julia?

IDG Contributor Network: Container usage trends: An inside look based on active container deployments

There is tremendous momentum across the Docker container ecosystem year over year as more organizations transition to devops and microservices models and gain more expertise in the modern stack. The second annual Docker usage report from Sysdig shows more activity, more scale, and life cycle attributes that are unique to container environments. The report is based… Continue reading IDG Contributor Network: Container usage trends: An inside look based on active container deployments

Serverless cloud computing is the next big thing

Serverless computing in the cloud is a good idea—serverless computing is not just for the datacenter. Serverless cloud computing means the ability to get out of the business of provisioning cloud-based servers, such as storage and compute, to support your workloads, and instead use autiation at the cloud provider to allocate and deallocate resources automatically.… Continue reading Serverless cloud computing is the next big thing

IDG Contributor Network: In an age of fake news, is there really such a thing as fake data?

Deloitte Global predicts that medium and large enterprises will increase their use of machine learning in 2018, doubling the number of implementations and pilot projects underway in 2017. And, according to Deloitte, by 2020, that number will likely double again. Machine learning is clearly on the rise among companies of all sizes and in all… Continue reading IDG Contributor Network: In an age of fake news, is there really such a thing as fake data?

IDG Contributor Network: Multicloud: the new monitoring silo

Most IT professionals would agree that cloud computing is more about a paradigm than a physical displacement of computing resources. The “utility” paradigm is transformational by virtue of on-demand, elastic resources. But unlike being stuck with just a single local cable provider, the range of choice in cloud computing options also provides selectivity and customization… Continue reading IDG Contributor Network: Multicloud: the new monitoring silo

It’s not easy to move from a private cloud to a hybrid cloud

A hybrid cloud provides you with the largest number of options, according to those that sell them. You get a private cloud coupled with one or more public clouds, with workloads distributed across them. IT is often told that starting with a private cloud and then going hybrid is a straightforward, sensible strategy. But it’s not… Continue reading It’s not easy to move from a private cloud to a hybrid cloud
