WEEKLY ARTICLES

The Non-Technical Guide to Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence

一则索引文。这里整理了你想要的关于Machine learning和Artificial intelligence的一切资源、新闻、领航者以及活动。授人予鱼不如授人予渔啊..文章开头就说:随便打开一个科技咨询的网站,搜索”machine learning”或“artificial intelligence”,一定找到这俩词。试了一下..还真有…

Machine learning and artificial intelligence (ML and AI) have seized Tech mindshare in a way few topics have in recent memory. A couple months ago I noticed people talking about artificial intelligence everywhere I looked. According to AI experts, everything from our jobs, to the wars we wage, to the food we eat, to the beer we drink, to the software we write will be affected.

Rather than sit here and pretend I know everything there is to know about ML and AI, I’m going to hand you the resources I use to educate myself.

Alexa, Tell Me Where You’re Going Next

对Amazon旗下Alexa产品VP Rohit Prasad的采访。Echo是Amazon智能家居语音控制终端,而Alexa则是Echo的大脑。Prasad聊到了Echo的优势,聊到了以“智能对话机器人”为主题的面向业界的挑战项目,聊到了AI在Alexa中的应用,聊到了Echo的未来,聊到了Echo的一些技术细节,还聊到了用户非常关心的隐私问题。

For instance, think about music as a domain: We have new capabilities [for] you [to be] able to search for or play a song, based on its lyrics. And lastly is the speed at which third-party skills are being built. Earlier this year we had only a few hundred, and now we are in the 5,000 range.

What’s unique about research in a company like Amazon is the combination of data, computing power, and the best minds in the world all coming together to solve a customer-facing problem.

Working on a customer-facing problem doesn’t take away the innovation — it actually accelerates innovation.

State of Startups 2016

对美国当前科技创业及投资人员的一次现状调查。调查时间是2016年的8月及9月,调查对象是超过700位的科技创业者。他们分享了从投资环境,到公司人员配置,再到当前整个科技生态的见解。调查发起者收集了这些数据,整理出了一份有趣的解读。这些一线创业人员的见解,足够让我们了解今年这个行业,到底是什么样的情况。

We asked 700+ founders to answer one of the most frequently asked questions we receive: are we in a bubble? Last year 73% said we were. While this year the majority still say yes, it’s closer to a coin flip (57%), down 22% from 2015.

Though the majority of founders say we’re in a bubble, 9 out of 10 founders believe that it’s a good time to be starting a company. All aboard!

Once again, we asked founders to write in which current tech leader they admire the most and we tallied 125 names. The Tesla and SpaceX leader held firm at the top spot (23%), followed by Jeff Bezos (10%), Mark Zuckerberg (6%) and Steve Jobs (5%). The most cited female leader is Sheryl Sandberg, who clocked in at 1% overall, and 5% for female respondents.

Ev Williams: How I Keep Tech in Check

人人离不开科技,甚至过度沉溺于科技。来看看知名博客平台Medium的创办人Ev Williams如何在日常工作中利用technology来平衡生活与科技的关系。1. 深度冥想:一天20分钟的冥想,去除所有焦躁,清空心智带宽。 2. 为每周建立一个大概的日程:比如周一晚上和孩子吃饭,周二晚上固定加班,周三关掉手机工作等。 3. 高效运动:即使健身房就在办公室对面,还是太远了。因此可以靠一些App或家里的器材高效的锻炼。

I’ve spent the last 20 years breathing and building the internet. So I have a good sense for the benefits of always-available instant access and all it entails. I also have a strong appreciation for the drain being constantly connected can cause on your health and sense of well-being.

WEEKLY PRODUCT

Kitchen Stories

一款精美的厨房菜谱App。图片极为精致,教学的短视频拍摄堪称惊艳,字体及配色的使用恰到好处。设计好看到对做菜毫不感兴趣的我足足捧着看了十几分钟,看了好几个视频。官方制作视频及图片而非UGC的形式保证了所有视频图片的色调、光线、摆盘等视觉效果的统一。

首屏瀑布流形式展现,点赞动效给好评。第二屏根据做菜中不同的技能,例如烘培或切菜等罗列了一系列的视频。第三屏是搜索,分成好几个大类,类似于发现页。第四页是购买:用户在看完某一个食谱后可以一键将所需的食材加入购物车。当然目前App还未提供直接购买功能。这一功能暂时还只是作为收藏出现。第四屏则是简单的“喜欢”和“收藏夹“。

创始人是两位80后女性。她们都是狂热的美食爱好者——在发现市场上没有任何一款食谱App符合她们的胃口后,就决定自己做一个。真酷!

WEEKLY MUSIC

Bad Things

Am I out of my head

Am I out of my mind?

If you only knew the bad things I like

Don’t think that I can explain it

What can I say, it’s complicated

Don’t matter what you say

Don’t matter what you do

I only wanna do bad things to you

So good, that you can’t explain it

What can I say, it’s complicated
