Probabilistic programming and Bayesian method for hackers

Hello colleagues. Today we wanted to ask how useful you seem to be a slightly outdated book " " Bayesian Methods for Hackers ", Published in the original in 201? but not yet translated into Russian.
 
 
Probabilistic programming and Bayesian method for hackers
 
The book is positioned as applied, maximally disposed of mathematics and timeless.
 
 
Under the cut - a slightly abbreviated translation of the review of this book, laid out by the author on Github.

On the issue of performance of old and new versions of the node

Periodically, developers who support older Nodian applications have doubts about the need to translate the application from older versions of the node to new ones. The main argument in favor of staying on the old ones is "I do not use new features, but their implementation probably slows down processing in general". Plus, the situation can be greatly complicated by the presence of dependencies on libraries that are no longer supported under new nodes, and changing the node version automatically results in a significant redesign of the application architecture. My article, I hope, will help them ...

Find out who you are in the world of Machine Learning

And yet today is Friday (although not the end of the labor week). In order to brighten this fact, we suggest you pass a small test on Data Science. Some lovers of tricky mathematical problems have already appreciated it on Data Fest, the largest domestic conference for anyone who earns bread and butter (or simply enjoys) the analysis and processing of data, machine learning and development on the basis of AI. Under the cut - a short story about our activities at the event and, of course, DeSert himself.

Aytreking is the best lie detector

Aytreking is the best lie detectorIf a person can learn to partially control his facial expressions (at least large movements with facial muscles) and "cunning" with the use of body language, then eye movements are much more difficult to consciously control. In one experiment, the participants were asked to reproduce the trajectory of their view with the cursor on the screen - and even with such a clear statement of the problem, the subjects did not realize 42-55% of the movements of their eyes (Marti .et al. , 2014).
 
 
Therefore, our eyes can tell a lot about when we are trying to hide the truth, and the tracking can be ...

How I mastered English

Hello. I'm an IT person for 3? and I love English. It so happened that for many years, English did not want to love me. In front of you is the living example of a man with "bad memory", "inability to speak", a wealth of experience in the unsuccessful learning of English both in courses and independently, missed due to ignorance of the language by chances and complexes that have emerged on this soil. All that could be done in studying a foreign language is bad, I tried to make it worse. In spite of all this, before you is a happy ending story, which I believe will help someone avoid stupid mistakes...

Live. Die. Sunday. Repeat

Not so long ago, when I returned home from work where I was engaged in the construction of a cottage community project for the day-I placed them on the road map and playgrounds, instructed builders where to plant trees and where to plant lawns, I sat down at the computer to play a computer game - a little rest from a difficult day.
 
 
In the game, I placed roads and smithies, instructed builders where to plant trees and where to plant hops and how to repel the Saracen raids. That is, I was doing the same thing as at work. The difference with real life, of course, existed - but insignificant. Modern ...

As on the Positive Hack Days, CCTV cameras attacked: the CAMBreaker contest

As on the Positive Hack Days, CCTV cameras attacked: the CAMBreaker contest
 
This year the Positive Hack Days forum was attended by more than ?000 people, most of whom are information security specialists. A distinctive feature of the forum visitors is a non-standard mentality and superintelligence on many technical issues. All these qualities could be demonstrated in hacker competitions, which the organizers prepared, one of them was a contest for hacking IP-cameras CAMBreaker . Has anyone managed to cope with all the tests that have been delivered - in our article. hacker "Time - brought a couple of kegs of cold beer.
