Two Minute Papers has a great video explaining the “Distilling a Neural Network Into a Soft Decision Tree” paper.
Siraj Raval has a video explaining the Unity and it’s new AI tool.
Creating 3D AI in a simulated world is actually pretty easy using Unity. It’s a powerful tool and I’ll go over its new ML Agents toolkit, that allows researchers and developers to build/train ML models in a 3D simulation. It’s pretty fun watching it in a 3D world, lets break down the code and concepts.
Guy in a Cube just posted a new video and, as always, it’s a must watch!
Here’s a nice little video from the Power BI engineering team about the features they released in 2017.
Here’s an episode of BBC Click where they go deep into explaining quantum computing.
Siraj Raval takes a turn as an action star in this cartoon short.

Raghav Mohan joins Scott Hanselman to talk about Apache Kafka on HDInsight, which added the open-source distributed streaming platform last year to complete a scalable, big data streaming scenario on Azure.
Kafka is capable of processing millions of events/sec, petabytes of data/day to power scenarios like Toyota’s connected car, Office 365’s clickstream analytics, fraud detection for large banks, etc.
Find out how to deploy managed, cost-effective Kafka clusters on Azure HDInsight with a 99.9% SLA with just 4 clicks or pre-created ARM templates.
