Домашнее задание от МТИ: пишем нейросеть для манёвров в дорожном трафике / Geektimes. DeepTraffic — интересная интерактивная игра, поучаствовать в которой может любой желающий, а студенты Массачусетского технологического института (МТИ), которые изучают курс глубинного обучения в беспилотных автомобилях, обязаны показать хороший результат в этой игре, чтобы им засчитали выполненное задание. Участникам предлагают спроектировать агента ИИ, а именно, спроектировать и обучить нейронную сеть, которая покажет себя лучше конкурентов в плотном дорожном потоке. В управление агенту даётся один автомобиль (красного цвета). Он должен научиться маневрировать в потоке наиболее эффективным способом. По условиям игры, в автомобиль изначально встроена система безопасности, то есть он не сможет врезаться или улететь с дороги. Задача игрока — только управлять разгоном/торможением и сменой полос. Агент будет делать это с максимальной эффективностью, но не врезаясь в другие автомобили.

As we enter the Big Data era, it becomes more important to properly expand our capacity to process information for analysis and communication purposes. In a business context, this is evident as good visualisation techniques can support statistical treatment of data, or even become an analysis technique. But also, can be used as a communication tool to report insights that inform decisions. Today there are plenty of tools out there that can be used to improve your data visualisation efforts at every level. Below we list a non-exhaustive list of resources.

Cambridge Intelligence. Essential Resources: Mapping applications, frameworks and libraries. This is part of a series of posts to share with readers a useful collection of some of the most important, effective and practical data visualisation resources. This post presents the many different options for visualisation spacial data. Please note, I may not have personally used all the packages or tools presented but have seen sufficient evidence of their value from other sources. Whilst some inclusions may be contentious from a quality/best-practice perspective, they may still provide some good features and provide value to a certain audience out there.

Data Mining Community's Top Resource - Aurora. Computers: Software: Databases: Data Mining: Tool Vendors. Pattern. Pattern is a web mining module for the Python programming language. It has tools for data mining (Google, Twitter and Wikipedia API, a web crawler, a HTML DOM parser), natural language processing (part-of-speech taggers, n-gram search, sentiment analysis, WordNet), machine learning (vector space model, clustering, SVM), network analysis and <canvas> visualization. The module is free, well-document and bundled with 50+ examples and 350+ unit tests. Download Installation Pattern is written for Python 2.5+ (no support for Python 3 yet). The module has no external dependencies, except LSA in the pattern.vector module, which requires NumPy (installed by default on Mac OS X). To install Pattern so that the module is available in all Python scripts, from the command line do: > cd pattern-2.6 > python setup.py install If you have pip, you can automatically download and install from the PyPi repository: If none of the above works, you can make Python aware of the module in three ways: Quick overview.
