Here is a primer to introduce the concepts of deep learning with a specific focus on computer vision. It covers concepts including CNN’s (Convolutional Neural Networks), deep learning and transfer learning. It was created as an introduction for people getting started with machine learning and specifically deep learning to explain some of the commonly used terms and introduce some of the popular approaches to solving computer vision challenges.
James Baker joins Lara Rubbelke to introduce Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2, which is redefining cloud storage for big data analytics due to multi-modal (object store and file system) access and combining the best qualities of a dedicated analytics file system with those of a cloud-scale object store.

Siraj Raval shares his genius in this Q&A/AMA live stream where he shares his thoughts on blockchain, AI, VR, learning techniques, and a bunch of other software related topics.
The 4th of July holiday tomorrow marks the 242nd year since the United States declared independence from Great Britain. July 1st, aside from being Canada Day, also marks the start of the new fiscal year at Microsoft.
To commemorate a festive week, here’s a quick little video I rendered. 🙂
Here’s an interesting look at one of the most promising fields in AI today: Reinforcement Learning.
I just completed the Reinforcement Learning certification on EdX and I am seriously impressed.
This week on Five Things – SERVICE WORKERS. What are they? What do they do and how do you use them?
John Papa sits down with Craig Shoemaker who knows a thing or two about Service Workers. Or at least he pretends to and fakes it really well. You decide. Also, John sings the intro, Craig says every buzzword he knows and our editor Kaitlin goes a little overboard with the animations.
Michio Kaku ponders the future of employment in a world filled with smarter and smarter things. He’s a bit pessimistic about the ability of AI to recognize patterns, but, overall, he’s right on the money.
Quantum computing is a hard subject to get your head around. Fortunately, this video has Dr. Talia Gershon (Senior Manager, Quantum Research) to explain quantum computing to 5 different people; a child, teen, a college student, a grad student and a professional.
Luis Serrano has a great video explaining the basics of Recurrent Neural Networks, or RNN for those who prefer acronyms.
Unlike traditional software development, as you progress further in data science and AI, you will encounter more and more advanced mathematics. Given the sad state of how math is taught in schools today (at least in the US), learning math quickly can dramatically impact the quality of your life and your career options.
Fortunately, Siraj Raval has got our back and, in this video, he offers up tips on how to learn math more quickly.
