Going to be a great field. Many opportunities.
 
Five Types of Machine Learning - And Other Insights

This is a great interview with the University of Washington's Pedro Domingos about his new book, The Master Algorithm. I bought the book the other day, but have yet to dive in. This article made me excited to do so.

Domingos divides the field into five contemporary machine-learning paradigms—evolutionary algorithms, connectionism and neural networks, symbolism, Bayes networks, and analogical reasoning—which he imagines being unified in one future “master algorithm” capable of learning nearly anything.

On the differences between machine learning and the way coding is done today: 

The question, then, is why one would want to generate opaque and unpredictable networks rather than writing strict, effective programs oneself. The answer, as Domingos told me, is that “complete control over the details of the algorithm doesn’t scale.” There are three related aspects to machine learning that mitigate this problem:

(1) It uses probabilities rather than the true/false binary.
(2) Humans accept a loss of control and precision over the details of the algorithm.
(3) The algorithm is refined and modified through a feedback process.

This one's a worthwhile read. 

#machinelearning  
Computers and the algorithms they run are precise, perfect, meticulously programmed, and austere. That’s the idea, anyway. But there’s a burgeoning, alternative model of programming and computation that sidesteps the limitations of the classic model, embracing uncertainty, variability, self-correction, and overall messiness. It’s called machine learning, and it’s impacted fields...

I burned at least 1,500 calories today snorkling. The only bummer was no fitbit and no apple watch to track. But I did take my droid snorkling so that was fantastic. I love metrics like some people like stuffed animals. :D

I couldn't get Google Wallet to work so I just donate to posts like this (I put money in and it sits there). I did get my Apple watch to work and I pay with it a lot now. I would have gotten a Droid watch. Anyhoo, I donated & in case anyone else wants to donate...
 
Just donated to 'Elephant collar project in Virunga'. Give $1. Change a lot. https://onetoday.google.com/p/akhumpbj
Did you know? Virunga National Park's elephant population has decreased by 90% in the last 20 years, from 3000 to 200 individuals, due to poaching.

What a cool share!
 
Electron microscope video of phonograph needle in an LP groove. About 1/400 actual speed. Captured via Tektronix MDO3000 oscilloscope.

This video was made via the "stop motion" animation technique.  I moved the LP by 50 microns at a time, and captured a frame after each move. The setup inside the microscope was made possible by the fact that there are two separate stages with their own motion controls. I fixed the needle to one stage and the LP to the other so that I could get both parts into the frame at a good angle.

Favorite workout studio, hands down. Both personal training and boot camps. Extraordinary results! See D or Tristan. I've brought tons of friends but it is for warriors only. People who know health is their responsibility, period.
