- Running BigDL Apache Spark Deep Learning Library on Microsoft Data Science Virtual Machine. A post about how you now can run the Apache Spark distributed deep learning library BigDL on Microsoft Data Science Virtual Machines, running on Linux. As I wrote in a tweet: “Who’d ‘thunk’ some years ago, that MS would be on the forefront in Data Science and Open Source ‘stuff’.” Amazing!
- Data Virtualization: Unlocking Data for AI and Machine Learning. A post about how to handle big data efficient and easy by using data virtualization techniques.
- Interactive R visuals in Power BI. Some days ago we discussed at work, how to get interactive R visuals in Power BI. Couple of days later, this blog post by the guys at Revolution Analytics, “popped” up, and told us what and how to do it. Cool!
That’s all for this week. I hope you enjoy what I did put together. If you have ideas for what to cover, please comment on this post or ping me.
