AVBytes: AI & ML Developments this week – Pandas on Ray, Windows ML, TensorFlow code for Google’s AstroNet, An online tool for Dirty Data, etc.
Breakthroughs in technology are taking place at a breakneck pace thanks to machine learning and artificial intelligence. I come across articles from around the globe on a daily basis about how the field of data science is helping researchers and the community make progress towards a brighter future.
However, as someone in this ever expanding world, it is daunting to keep up with each and every new technology. This is why we, at Analytics Vidhya, have recently launched AVBytes. We cover the latest breakthroughs, developments, updates and happenings in the world of machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence.
In the past week, we had a range of developments – a Pandas library to work with large datasets with limited resources, Flippy the AI robot burger cook, Farrago – an online tool that helps you deal with dirty and messy data, Google’s TensorFlow code for working with space data, an AI experiment to convert 2D images to 3D (open to the general public), among many others.
