Praticando Inbox Zero no GMail – Filtros e Labels

Fiz um vídeo novo, falando um pouco sobre como praticar conceitos de inbox zero. Aqui mostrando o funcionamento de labels e filtros com o GMail, que é o cliente de email que mais utilizo. Dica: se você quer usar Google no trabalho, saiba como fazer acontecer. — Daniel Wildt (assine meu canal do youtube)   […]

scitkit-learn: TF/IDF and cosine similarity for computer science papers

A couple of months ago I downloaded the meta data for a few thousand computer science papers so that I could try and write a mini recommendation engine to tell me what paper I should read next. Since I don’t have any data on which people read each paper a collaborative filtering approach is ruled […]

This is not just a medical school thing

This is not just a medical school thing it is a college student thing. That is why many are moving back in with mom and dad after graduation and because most don’t own property many just declare bankruptcy. Medical students just have a larger problem due to the length of the educational process. That being

Java legacy hairball: refactoring case-study

Ten years ago, I led a team for a banking client to rejuvenate their FX-trading platform. One aspect of that mission was to snip away at the existing singleton-laden solution in order to make a cleaner and more unit-testable. I’ve written the case-study for this methodical (and pauseable) decomposition project over a few prior articles:

From the 2008 article - that introduced Most Depended-on and least depending

On Finding Learning

tl;dr In a recent blog post, a commenter asked some questions that I felt were a bit more easily answered in the main blog format than in comments. Specifically, he asked two of the more common “How do I…” questions—finding motivation, and finding time.

In the “The Value of Failure” Greg asked two questions:

Finding motivation

First off:

How to motivate myself to grow and learn, when I’m the only senior java developer in my company. I’m surrounded with people who don’t care about gro wing [sic], and learning. Let’s say I can change my “corporation”.

For this…

Automated pipeline support for Consumer Driven Contracts

When developing a system composed of services (maybe microservices) some services will depend on other services in order to work. In this article I use the terminology "consumer"[1] to mean a service which depends on another service, and "provider" to mean a service being depended upon. This article only addresses consumers and providers developed within the same company. I'm not considering external consumers here.

This article is about what we did at Springer Nature to make it easy to run CDCs - there is more written about CDCs elsewhere.

Mahout/Hadoop: org.apache.hadoop.ipc.RemoteException: Server IPC version 9 cannot communicate with client version 4

I’ve been working my way through Dragan Milcevski’s mini tutorial on using Mahout to do content based filtering on documents and reached the final step where I needed to read in the generated item-similarity files. I got the example compiling by using the following Maven dependency: org.apache.mahout mahout-core 0.9 Unfortunately when I ran […]

Hadoop: DataNode not starting

In my continued playing with Mahout I eventually decided to give up using my local file system and use a local Hadoop instead since that seems to have much less friction when following any examples. Unfortunately all my attempts to upload any files from my local file system to HDFS were being met with the […]

[原]Emacs24的自动折行设置

网上多数关于emacs的自动折行配置都是基于原来的旧版,在24版本下,其设置方式如下:

在你的.emacs 文件或 .emacs.d/init.el 文件中,添加下面这行代码:(注意,参数一定是正数,如果为负数,即为不自动折行)

(toggle-truncate-lines 1)


重启emacs,搞定。



---------------------

如果只是想临时改变一下设置,可以在emacs下,使用以下命令:

 1. M-x toggle-truncate-lines

Building your children’s book library: 6 places to buy books

Young children love hearing their favourite stories over and over (and over) again.  However, as they grow older and want to hear longer books, they prefer novelty.  Which means more books.  The library is a great help and we visit the library every week, but it’s also nice to have a selection of books at… Continue reading Building your children’s book library: 6 places to buy books

Mahout: Exception in thread “main” java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Wrong FS: file:/… expected: hdfs://

I’ve been playing around with Mahout over the last couple of days to see how well it works for content based filtering. I started following a mini tutorial from Stack Overflow but ran into trouble on the first step: bin/mahout seqdirectory \ --input file:///Users/markneedham/Downloads/apache-mahout-distribution-0.12.2/foo \ --output file:///Users/markneedham/Downloads/apache-mahout-distribution-0.12.2/foo-out \ -c UTF-8 \ -chunk 64 \ -prefix […]

Books around the house: normalising reading

When I was ten years old, we lived with my grandfather for seven months.  He lived in an old stone house surrounded by lush farmland in Cornwall, in the south of England.  The house had once been a butter factory and in his younger days my grandfather ran a nursery – he had a shop room, greenhouses… Continue reading Books around the house: normalising reading

Neo4j: Cypher – Detecting duplicates using relationships

I’ve been building a graph of computer science papers on and off for a couple of months and now that I’ve got a few thousand loaded in I realised that there are quite a few duplicates. They’re not duplicates in the sense that there are multiple entries with the same identifier but rather have different […]

Art, AI and Google I/O 2016

What if there are interesting things waiting to be discovered where artificial intelligence meets art?

At Google I/O 2016 Ramzi Rizk told me there's a field called Computational Aesthetics. It is so nascent that it doesn't even have a Wikipedia page. Computational Aesthetics is where computers can actually tell us if a picture is pretty or not. This is different from systems like Flickr's Interestingness because the system infers beauty from the image itself rather than from the social signals generated by people's interactions with the image. In fact there's already been research showing that social signals lead communities like
