Four short links: 25 May 2016
Thinking Textbook, How To Include, Machine Learning for Artists, and Social Hash
- Computational and Inferential Thinking — This is the textbook for the Foundations of Data Science class at UC Berkeley.
- Project Include — an open community working toward providing meaningful diversity and inclusion solutions for tech companies. Lots of how-to for CEOs, leaders, and managers.
- Machine Learning for Artists — NYU ITP 2016 course.
- SocialHash (Paper a Day) — Large-scale systems frequently need to partition resources or load across multiple nodes. How you do that can make a big difference. […] Facebook used to use a random distribution to assign objects to components, but switched to an assignment method called Social Hashing that exploits properties in the social graph.
