Four short links: 13 March 2019
O'Reilly Radar, Speech Recognition, Super Sensors, Burnout
- What is O’Reilly Radar? — trends we see breaking: Next Economy; Future of the Firm; Machine Learning/AI; Next Architecture; Responding to Disruption. Report on Future of the Firm is already out.
- An All-Neural On-Device Speech Recognizer (Google) — on-device is the important bit here: no more uploading all your ambient audio to the cloud. After compression, the final model is 80MB. That’s impressive too.
- Super Sensors — a single, highly capable sensor can indirectly monitor a large context, without direct instrumentation of objects.
- Observations on Burnout — I’ll add some data points, go in-depth on what I think causes it, and attempt to offer some advice for engineers and managers.
