Machine Learning in Six Lines

Posted on

I’ve only very recently started experimenting with Machine Learning, but Python has made is super simple. First, set up an scikit-learn environment (I used Anaconda) and import the decision tree classifier and import tree from sklearn. Compile this python script, and, if there are no errors, we have our environment set up. Now let’s get some data. In the following, we’re using two one-dimensional arrays for features and labels. Consider a phone app where we save the names of contacts I called, corresponding to the time when I called them.

The Missed $30 Billion Opportunity

Posted on

When I posted Study, but with a Difference two years back, my friends and I had an incredible idea that was going to change the way students think of education in India. We wanted to create a platform where students and teachers can find each other. We soon moved to a platform where students can access good-quality study material for free. I am about to take my 12th grade board examinations next week, so over the past few weeks, I have been re-thinking the Class Rebels business model.

A Designer on Operating Systems

Posted on

A Silicon Valley startup was founded in 2003 with an aim to develop an advanced operating system for digital cameras. Considering that the camera market wasn’t large-enough, they started work on a mobile OS, and were acquired by Google two years later. Currently, they have over a billion active monthly users, which has doubled from 538 million in mid-2013. Of course, I’m talking about Android, the magical Linux-based mobile OS that sells more than Apple’s and Microsoft’s mobile and desktop OSes, combined. So how do you get from there to here? And where do you go after this?

Fleksy Keyboard Review

Posted on

A couple of days ago, one of my friends asked me to try out a new keyboard called Fleksy. I had never heard its name before, but since he was so excited about it, I decided to give it a try. Soon, I installed it on my phone. And then, my whole tying experience changed. But before I get into that, I’ll let you know that I was using Swype. And I have it uninstalled now.

Awakening

Posted on

Dawn symbolizes a lot of things, of which sunrise is the only literal meaning. A new hope, a new beginning, fresh thoughts, an opportunity to stop condemning, meet challenges with resolve, pursuits that are remarkable and passion that reflects creation. Stupor and sleep restore confidence and vitality, very much essential to play in the field of life. Beyond shower, tooth-brush and break; time to step out. The stage is set.

The End of WWW

Posted on

The ‘WWW’ subdomain is deprecated. There. I said it. Let me put it this way — When you type google.com in your web browser, you get redirected to http://www.google.com, right? But is that necessary? Do we really need to prove our world-wide web presence by adding a WWW subdomain? I don’t think so. Remember that some people always use it, some don’t, and some only use it if it was in the URL they were given. So, would it be more practical for people to be forced with the WWW subdomain, or just lose it completely?
