Scikit-learn
"We use scikit-learn to support leading-edge basic research [...]" "I think it's the most well-designed ML package I've seen so far." "scikit-learn's ease-of-use, performance and overall variety of algorithms implemented has proved invaluable [...]." "For these tasks, we relied on the excellent scikit-learn package for Python." "The great benefit of scikit-learn is its fast learning curve [...]" "It allows us to do AWesome stuff we would not otherwise accomplish" "scikit-learn makes doing advanced analysis in Python accessible to anyone."

The Best Machine Learning Libraries in Python Introduction There is no doubt that neural networks, and machine learning in general, has been one of the hottest topics in tech the past few years or so. It's easy to see why with all of the really interesting use-cases they solve, like voice recognition, image recognition, or even music composition. Mahotas A dedicated mahotas page with documentation is available at This page is just a summary. Mahotas is a set of functions for image processing and computer vision in Python. It was originally designed for bioimage informatics, but is useful in other areas as well. It is completely based on numpy arrays as its datatype.

[the new p0f] Copyright (C) 2012 by Michal Zalewski <lcamtuf@coredump.cx> Yeah, it's back! 1. What's this? P0f is a tool that utilizes an array of sophisticated, purely passive traffic fingerprinting mechanisms to identify the players behind any incidental TCP/IP communications (often as little as a single normal SYN) without interfering in any way. Version 3 is a complete rewrite of the original codebase, incorporating a significant number of improvements to network-level fingerprinting, and introducing the ability to reason about application-level payloads (e.g., HTTP).

Machine Learning for Developers by Mike de Waard Most developers these days have heard of machine learning, but when trying to find an 'easy' way into this technique, most people find themselves getting scared off by the abstractness of the concept of Machine Learning and terms as regression, unsupervised learning, Probability Density Function and many other definitions. If one switches to books there are books such as An Introduction to Statistical Learning with Applications in R and Machine Learning for Hackers who use programming language R for their examples. However R is not really a programming language in which one writes programs for everyday use such as is done with for example Java, C#, Scala etc.

Study Skills Study skills are the skills you need to enable you to study and learn efficiently – they are an important set of transferable life skills. Our pages provide generic study skills advice – appropriate to learners across all disciplines and in different life circumstances: full and part-time students, those returning to education later in life, those engaged in professional development and anybody who wants to learn how to learn effectively. At SkillsYouNeed we provide quality content on many life skills – and many of these are relevant to studying. You’ll find two types of study skills pages – pages that directly relate to skills you need for study (such as How to Write an Essay) and pages that are more general life skills but which are also important to studying (like Active Listening).

Intro to Hadoop An Introduction to Hadoop Apache Hadoop is an open source software project that enables the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of commodity servers. It is designed to scale up from a single server to thousands of machines, with a very high degree of fault tolerance. Rather than relying on high-end hardware, the resiliency of these clusters comes from the software’s ability to detect and handle failures at the application layer.

The OCRopus OCRopus™ is an OCR system written in Python, NumPy, and SciPy focusing on the use of large scale machine learning for addressing problems in document analysis. OCRopus 0.7 is the latest release of the OCRopus OCR system. It features a new text line recognizer based on recurrent neural networks (and does not require language modeling), models for both Latin script and Fraktur, and some new tools for ground truth labeling. Installation: To install, use: $ hg clone -r ocropus-0.7 $ cd ocropus/ocropy $ sudo apt-get install $(cat PACKAGES) $ python setup.py download_models $ sudo python setup.py install $ ./run-test

Autopsy Forensic Browser: Download Download There are six files to download for each release: autopsy-X.X.X-32bit.msi: A 32-bit Windows installer. autopsy-X.X.X-64bit.msi: A 64-bit Windows installer. autopsy-X.X.X-devplatform.zip: A platform for developers to write modules against. Machine Learning at Quora - Engineering at Quora - Quora Adapted from my original answer to How does Quora use machine learning in 2015? At Quora we have been using machine learning approaches for some time. We are constantly coming up with new approaches and making big improvements to the existing ones.

Types of Listening Most people, most of the time, take listening for granted, it’s something that just happens. It is only when you stop to think about listening and what it entails that you begin to realise that listening is in fact an important skill that needs to be nurtured and developed. Listening is perhaps the most important of all interpersonal skills and SkillsYouNeed has many pages devoted to the subject, see Listening Skills for an introduction. Further pages include Active Listening and Listening Misconceptions. System Architectures for Personalization and Recommendation by Xavier Amatriain and Justin Basilico In our previous posts about Netflix personalization, we highlighted the importance of using both data and algorithms to create the best possible experience for Netflix members. We also talked about the importance of enriching the interaction and engaging the user with the recommendation system.
