In this livestream, Andy and I talk about why Data Engineering may be the next hot career, how Microsoft’s culture has changed, and Frank’s solar power experiments.
In this livestream, I explain LinkedIn’s Social Selling Index or SSI.
Recently, I was granted access to the LinkedIn Live beta program and here is the first live stream I did on the platform.
With me is Andy Leonard and talk about AI, ethics, MSDN Magazine, and LinkedIn Live.
LinkedIn has just open sourced a tool it created to convert Apache Spark-based big data into a format that can be readily consumed by TensorFlow. The tool, Avro2TF “bridges the gap and presents an elegant solution for ML engineers, freeing them up to focus on different deep learning algorithms,” the team stated.
The team noted that like LinkedIn, many other companies have vast amounts of ML data in a similar sparse vector format, and Tensor format is still relatively new to many of them. The believe that Avro2TF can help address these challenges.
It’s interesting to see LinkedIn, which itself is owned by Microsoft, open source their internal AI/ML tooling, joining the likes of Uber, Facebook, etc. What a time to be alive! 🙂
