Jupyter Notebooks are best known as tools for Data Scientists to display Python, Spark or R scripts. 
A Jupyter Notebook enables you to share words, images, code AND code results.  .NET interactive Jupyter notebooks add c sharp, F# and PowerShell core to the mix.
In this episode, Rob Sewell will introduce Jupyter Notebooks and show you how useful they could be for you in your daily work-life for Incident Resolution, Repeatable Tasks, and Demoing New Features.

Edge computing can solve specific business problems that demand some combination of in-house computing, high speed, and low latency that cloud-based AI can’t deliver, explained Deepu Talla, NVIDIA VP and GM of Embedded and Edge Computing.

The hardware and architecture that can support edge computing has improved significantly over the past year, including GPUs with Tensor Cores for dedicated AI processing, plus secure, high-performance networking gear. And edge server software is growing more sophisticated as well, such as NVIDIA’s EGX cloud-native software stack, which brings traditional cloud capabilities to the edge of the network. He also pointed to the company’s industry-specific application frameworks such as Metropolis for smart cities, Clara for health care, Jarvis for conversational AI, Isaac for robotics, and Aerial for telecommunications — each supporting forms of AI on NVIDIA GPUs.

Python is one of the world’s most popular computer languages, with over 8 million developers, according to research from SlashData.

The creator of Python is Guido van Rossum, a computer scientist and academic.

Back in the late 1980s, he saw an opportunity to create a better language and also realized that the open source model would be ideal for bolstering innovation and adoption (by the way, the name for the language came from his favorite comedy, the Monty Python’s Flying Circus).

“Python is a high-level programming language, easy for beginners and advanced users to get started with,” said Jory Schwach, who is the CEO of Andium.com. “It’s forgiving in its usage, allowing coders to skip learning the nuances that are necessary in other, more structured languages like Java. Python was designed to be opinionated about how software should be created, so there’s often just a single appropriate way to write a piece of code, leaving developers with fewer design decisions to deliberate over.”

A way to get started with the language is to use a platform like Anaconda, which handles the configurations and installs various third-party modules. But there are cloud-based editors, such as REPL (I also have my own course on Python, which is focused on the fundamentals).
