Holland is great
Holland is great for business and also one of the cheapest. Furthermore it's a great place live, to let your children grow up, good education, healthcare etc. So join us :-)

Nano-crystals & machine learning
Sometimes I share something I don't fully understand but which looks interesting. This is such an article, anybody who could shed some light on why this could be a break-through, let me know in the comments.

An algorithm to fine-tune algorithms
Vizier, an algorithm Google uses to tweak it's other algorithms. And it can bake cookies too ....

Browser as machine learning platform
It's very logical for Google to move machine learning to the browser, the main "operating system" on the internet.

The real challenges with regard to AI
For the most part I agree with this excellent blog, forget about superhuman AI, there are enough real issues to discuss with regard to machine learning.

When you feel depressed
When you feel depressed there is good chance that some social media algorithm can pick this up. Interesting example of a research in this field for instagram posts. It becomes creepy when companies or governments start acting on this information.

Open AI progress
Good to see that Open AI also has it's successes. I am wondering how this compares to the progress of Deepmind for example. Also read here for more details, https://hypebeast.com/2017/8/elon-musk-openai-beat-e-sport-gamers-dota?amp=1

After Go it's time for Starcraft
Exciting new development at +DeepMind , Alpha Go was a great achievement but the Starcraft game has a much higher level of complexity and uncertainty. I am curious how long it will take the machine learning community to conquer this game. If they do, it opens a whole new field of possibilities for machine learning in other environments.
