We do continous retro, do you?

If you are reading this blog right now you are already following scrum or trying to follow Scrum. Well, scrum has a lot of good practices which can surely make your project a success. Following it right is what most people get stuck on. One of its ceremonies is called retrospective which is quite important, inevitable in fact, but still many don’t do it. Leaving Continue Reading

MachineX: Choosing Support Vector Machine over other classifiers

When one has to select the best classifier from all the good options, often he would be on the horns of a dilemma. Decision tree/Random Forest, ANN, KNN, Logistic regression etc. are some options that often used for the choice of classification. Every one of it has its pros and cons and when to select the best one the probably the most important thing to Continue Reading

MachineX: The second dimensionality reduction method

In the previous blog we have gone through how more data or to be precise more dimensions in the data creates different problems like overfitting in classification and regression algorithms. This is known as “curse of dimensionality”. Then we have gone through the solutions to the problem i.e. dimensionality reduction. We were mainly focused on one of the dimensionality reduction method called feature selection. In this Continue Reading

MachineX: When data is a curse to learning

Data and learning are like best friends, perhaps learning is too dependent on data to be called as friends. When data overwhelms, learning acts pricey, so it feels more like a girlfriend-boyfriend sort of a relationship. Well don’t get confused or bothered on how I am comparing the data and learning, it is just my depiction of something called Dimensionality reduction in machine learning. On Continue Reading

The combat in Knoldus

Virtue is a state of war, and to live in it we have always to combat with ourselves. – Jean-Jacques Rousseau Knoldus held a Hackathon like competition within the organization on 11th June 2017. It was simply named “code-combat”. Knoldus is an organization which always encourages every individual to push his or her boundary and get the excellence out of him that could be achieved Continue Reading

Artificial Neural Network

Knoldus has organized a 30 min session on 09th June 2017 at 4:05 PM. The topic was Artificial Neural Network. Many people have joined and enjoyed the session. I am going to share the slides and Video here. Please let me know if you have any question related to linked slides. Artificial Neural Network from Knoldus Inc.

Learning the maths for Feed Forward Network

In my last blog we were discussing about the biological motivation on the artificial neural network. This time we will discuss more about the artificial neural network in practice. In ANN we have different layers of networks to solve a problem. For which problem, how many layers required to solve it, is a different topic and will be writing a blog on that soon, however Continue Reading

When akka stream meets RabbitMQ

“Reactive Streams is an initiative to provide a standard for asynchronous stream processing with non-blocking back pressure.”  – that is how reactive streams are defined in wikipedia. There are two other implementation to reactive streams then Akka-streams i.e. reactor and Netflix’s RxJava. However, since the reactive stream manifesto published the only mature implementation available is akka-stream. According to reactive manifesto the implementation must follow the following Continue Reading

First interaction Artificial Neural Network

I hated biology in my school days and loved mathematics. After a long period of time I get to learn something which combines both mathematics and biology together, that is Artificial Neural Network short for ANN, inspired by biological Neural network. Though you might find it weird, that is how I would like to define the artificial neural network. When we say biology here, it Continue Reading

(Code Dissection) Akka Quartz Scheduler Scala’s way of scheduling(Part -2)

I hope you guys are doing good, and had a fresh breath. Put your mask again if you find the previous topic smelly, as we are going to finish up the dissection for Akka Quartz Scheduler. I am going to refer the every Quartz-Scheduler things prefixed with java. So when I say Java-Quartz-Scheduler, I mean the the quartz library which is made through java, and Continue Reading

(Code Dissection) Akka Quartz Scheduler – Scala’s way of scheduling

Alright fellas, put your mask on ! we are about to do a dissection of a scala library called Akka Quartz Scheduler. (Eww!@#$* does it stink?) Well not literally, lets find out what is it first, then according to your nose you will get to know how does it smell 😀 :D. Akka Quartz Scheduler is a library which gets used for scheduling jobs. Now Continue Reading

Hi Folks, Knoldus has organized an one hour session on 23rd Sept 2015 at 5:00 PM. Topic was Microservices in a nutshell. Many people have joined and enjoyed the session. I am going to share the slides here. Please let me know if you have any question related to linked slides.

Play framework security with Silhouette

Silhouette is a security library for Play framework. Its basically a core only fork of Secure Social, which is another security library for play framework. Secure Social is a great framework for lots of user but my experience with secure social is not that good, nor with some of my friends and colleagues who use Play framework in their application. It’s been thrown out from Continue Reading
