Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Today we start with a post on AVC about concerns about specific employees. It is interesting to see how different people handle issues like this. On Flowing Data we get a really cool visualization of Kung Fu masters. The movements are converted into different particle and wave formations for very cool effects. Julia Evans talks about how we should remain skeptical of machine learning. The basic idea is that machine learning is not a silver bullet and can be used much like any statistical model to prove whatever hypothesis you want. You really need to understand what the model is telling you and whether you gave it useful inputs.

Today is all about Google. They dropped a ton of news at I/O. First, Firebase is becoming a unified app platform. Android is getting Instant Apps. There is a bunch of new information for Android including more details of the N-release and Android Studio. Firebase Analytics are being added to Google Analytics. This would normally be enough, but the rest of the news is huge. Allo, Duo and Assistant are the big news. Allo is a new smart messaging platform. Duo is Google’s take on FaceTime. Assistant is the new version of Google Now, and it is behind a lot of their new technology.

Google leads our day with their release of Spaces. Many news sites are calling it a messaging platform, but it feels more like a collaboration platform almost like a wiki. Overall, it seems like an odd thing for Google to be working on unless they are really focused on the business use cases. Michael Bromley has an excellent post on why he hasn’t fixed your issue yet. I would think that most developers have this problem with priorities and time, even when they are talking about their full-time job. Every once in a while, Jeremy Kun provides an excellent explanation of a topic. Today we get his second post on singular value decomposition.

Google Research leads our day with the announcement of SyntaxNet. This is a great release and it will be interesting to see how things evolve. On KD Nuggets they talk about TPOT, a Python tool for automating data science. Machine Learning Mastery talks about understanding your machine learning data with descriptive statistics. This is another Python related post, but it has a lot of good data processing information.
