A simple neural network for python autocompletion

It gives quite decent results by saving above 30% key strokes in most files, and close to 50% in some. We calculated key strokes saved by making a single (best) prediction and selecting it with a single key.

The Hitchhikers guide to handle Big Data using Spark

Big Data has become synonymous with Data engineering. But the line between Data Engineering and Data scientists is blurring day by day. At this point in time, I think that Big Data must be in the repertoire of all data scientists.

Facebook, Carnegie Mellon build first AI that beats pros in 6-player poker

Pluribus is the first AI bot capable of beating human experts in six-player no-limit Hold’em, the most widely-played poker format in the world. This is the first time an AI bot has beaten top human players in a complex game with more than two players or two teams.

As a data scientist I was pretty intrigued because I had previously worked in the jobs industry, a start-up where I built candidate-job matching algorithms off of millions of data points.
