LinkedIn New Machine Learning Tool for Software Developers

LinkedIn has announced a new tool FeatureFu which is to become open source for all software developers. 

The FeatureFu will help software developers to build machine learning models around statistical modeling and decision engines.

This offer by LinkedIn which is based on its “feature engineering” so that is accessible to software developers from around the world. 

In Machine Learning or sometimes refereed by some people as Artificial Intelligence, works by using detailed knowledge of the relevant data that users have at their disposal and then using that to build machine learning models.

LinkedIn states that most large-scale recommendation systems tend to be managed by at least two teams: one that handles the offline modeling and one that takes care of the online feature-serving/model-scoring part of the system.

Many large-scale recommendation systems are brittle and vulnerable. FeatureFu allows for creative and agile development on these systems so that shipping new features doesn’t take weeks or even months,

"FeatureFu could become a common technique for many machine learning systems,” he said. “It enables feature engineering to be more agile, which is one of the keys to success for machine learning applications. So we wanted to share our work with the industry.

 As stated by LinkedIn senior software engineer Bing Zhao.

FeatureFu uses a small Java library called Expr that developers can use to transform and build upon an existing set of features. “Once deployed to an online feature generation framework, it eliminates any further need for code-change to ship models for a wide range of derived features,

Adorable Cute Kittens Pictures

We have collected adorable cute pictures of kittens for the enjoyment of our visitors and readers. A kitten (also known as a kitty or kitty cat) is a juvenile cat. After being born, kittens are totally dependent on their mother for survival and do not normally open their eyes until after seven to ten days.

After about two weeks, kittens quickly develop and begin to explore the world outside the nest. After a further three to four weeks, they begin to eat solid food and grow adult teeth. Domestic kittens are highly social animals and enjoy human companionship. Source.

Why You Cannot Get Ahead Without a Mobile App in 2015

Why You Cannot Get Ahead Without a Mobile App in 2015
Webmasters and keen followers of the news will all have been aware of the latest update from Google, which was launched on 21st April. The new algorithm, dubbed ‘Mobilegeddon’ by many sceptics, was put in place to ensure that sites which were optimised for mobile devices ranked higher on Google’s search engine results pages.
While it is one thing for a website to rank highly on Google thanks to a mobile site, it is another thing altogether to incorporate one’s own app into a business. Whether your business is well-established or you’re just starting out, here are a few reasons why you cannot be without a mobile app in 2015.
Mobile apps are 24/7
Imagine a world where you can guarantee top class customer service around the clock, without having to rely on cumbersome call centres. Of course, this is not to discount the obvious benefits of human contact, but the advantages of a mobile app are that a customer can log on at a time that is co…
