Geek Reading March 15, 2016 #1063

It was a fairly light day yesterday, so there is not a ton of reading for today. First, on Machine Learning Theory they talk about how AlphaGo is not the solution to AI. People involved in the industry have really started to bang this drum considering people think AlphaGo is a much larger step than it really is. It is a great milestone, but the singularity is not coming tomorrow. The Netflix Tech Blog talks about their latest project, Mantis, which helps them with stream processing their large set of metrics data. Dropbox talks about their migration towards in-house storage. When you are talking about exabytes, scaling is clearly an issue and it is an interesting read.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
