Here’s an interesting talk by Aaditya Ramdas on “Sequential Estimation of Quantiles with Applications to A/B-testing and Best-arm Identification”

From the description:

Consider the problem of sequentially estimating quantiles of any distribution over a complete, fully-ordered set, based on a stream of i.i.d. observations. We propose new, theoretically sound and practically tight confidence sequences for quantiles, that is, sequences of confidence intervals which are valid uniformly over time. We give two methods for tracking a fixed quantile and two methods for tracking all quantiles simultaneously. Specifically, we provide explicit expressions with small constants for intervals whose widths shrink at the fastest possible rate, as determined by the law of the iterated logarithm (LIL).

Leonard Susskind is a professor of theoretical physics at Stanford University, and founding director of the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics.

He is widely regarded as one of the fathers of string theory and in general as one of the greatest physicists of our time both as a researcher and an educator.

I am happy to announce that I will attend my first Strata conference this week working at the Microsoft booth tomorrow.

Here’s a great write up on the Strata conference and what to expect this week in New York.

Just a few years ago, this bi-annual event was called Strata + Hadoop World. But when Hadoop’s influence waned, O’Reilly Media and Cloudera changed the name. And while Cloudera still sells a Hadoop platform, the company is much more interested in clouds these days. That’s why it’s taken to calling itself the “enterprise data cloud company.”

You may have heard of Deep Dream, program that uses deep learning to, well dream up, imagery based on imagery a neural network is exposed to.

Here’s a great write up on how it works.

Deep Dream Using Tensorflow My image which generated by Deep Dream. Whenever any person hears about Deep Learning or Neural Network the things which first come into their mind are that it’s used for Object Detection, Face Recognition, Natural Language Processing, and Speech Recognition. But Neural Network is also […]
