Deep learning for… Go

This is the last post about deep learning for chess/go/whatever. But this really cool paper by Christopher Clark and Amos Storkey was forwarded to me by Michael Eickenberg. It's about using convolutional neural networks to play Go.

Deep learning for… chess (addendum)

My previous blog post about deep learning for chess blew up and made it to Hacker News and a couple of other places. One pretty amazing thing was that the Github repo got 150 stars overnight.

Deep learning for... chess

I've been meaning to learn Theano for a while and I've also wanted to build a chess AI at some point. So why not combine the two? That's what I thought, and I ended up spending way too much time on it.

Optimizing things: everything is a proxy for a proxy for a proxy

Say you build a machine learning model, like a movie recommender system. You need to optimize for something. You have 1-5 stars as ratings so let's optimize for mean squared error. Great. Then let's say you build a new model.

Luigi conquering the world

I keep forgetting to buy a costume for Halloween every year, so this year I prepared and got myself a Luigi costume a month in advance. Only to realize I was going to be out of town the whole weekend.

Annoying blog post

I spent a couple of hours this weekend going through some pull requests and issues to Annoy, which is an open source C++/Python library for Approximate Nearest Neighbor search. I set up Travis-CI integration and spent some time on one of the issues that multiple people had reported.

Find ColdFusion installers, updates, hotfixes, and docs for all recent releases at CFMLRepo.com

This won't be new info for some, but many folks remain confused by the fact, that after Adobe release their current latest ColdFusion version, they no longer offer the previous versions(s) on their public-facing Adobe site.

The Filter Bubble is Silly and you Can't Guess What Happened Next

I'm at RecSys 2014, meeting a lot of people and hanging out at talks. Some of the discussions here was about the filter bubble which prompted me to formalize my own thoughts. I firmly believe that it's the role of a system to respect the user's intent.

Running Theano on EC2

Inspired by Sander Dieleman's internship at Spotify, I've been playing around with deep learning using Theano.

In defense of false positives (why you can't fail with A/B tests)

Many years ago, I used to think that A/B tests were foolproof and all you need to do is compare the metrics for the two groups. The group with the highest conversion rate wins, right?

Recurrent Neural Networks for Collaborative Filtering

I’ve been spending quite some time lately playing around with RNN’s for collaborative filtering.

CF911: High CPU in ColdFusion? Some common but perhaps unexpected causes

I often help people who are reporting that CF is "running hot on the CPU", maybe reaching 80 or even 100% of the CPU, whether in spikes or for extended periods.
