Building your own serverless functions with k3s and OpenFaaS on Raspberry Pi
Posted on September 6, 2020, Level intermediate Resource Length long
In recent years, lots of new programming paradigms have emerged – going from monolithic architectures towards microservices and now serverless functions. As a result, less code needs to be deployed, and updating an application becomes easier and faster as only a part has to be built and deployed. By Andreas Muttscheller.
Tutorial: Deploying TensorFlow models at the edge with NVIDIA Jetson Nano and K3s
Posted on September 5, 2020, Level intermediate Resource Length long
Janakiram MSV put together this tutorial about TensorFlow models. We will explore the idea of running TensorFlow models as microservices at the edge. Jetson Nano, a powerful edge computing device will run the K3s distribution from Rancher Labs. It can be a single node K3s cluster or join an existing K3s cluster just as an agent.

The government is funding basic research in AI, too. When big technologies like mobile phones, 5G networks and e-commerce arrive, it's important to get in on the ground floor. That's why the US government is establishing 12 new research centers, funded with hundreds of millions of dollars, to boost artificial intelligence and quantum computing.

Mastering AWS Kinesis data streams
Posted on July 14, 2020, Level advanced Resource Length long
An article by Anahit Pogosova in which she describes how she has been working with AWS Kinesis Data Streams for several years, dealing with over 0.5TB of streaming data per day. Rather than telling you about all the reasons why you should use Kinesis Data Streams (plenty is written on that subject), she will talk about the things you should know when working with the service.
Introduction to Machine Learning K-Nearest Neighbors (KNN) algorithm in Python
Posted on July 13, 2020, Level beginner Resource Length long
Machine Learning is one of the most popular approaches in Artificial Intelligence. Over the past decade, Machine Learning has become one of the integral parts of our life. It is implemented in a task as simple as recognizing human handwriting or as complex as self-driving cars. By Vibhu Singh.

Let's train a deep neural network from scratch! In this post, I provide a demonstration of how to optimize a model in order to predict galaxy metallicities using images, and I discuss some tricks for speeding up training and obtaining better results. By John F Wu.
How to perform K-means clustering with Python in Scikit?
Posted on June 7, 2020, Level intermediate Resource Length medium
While deep learning algorithms belong to today's fashionable class of machine learning algorithms, there exists more out there. Clustering is one type of machine learning where you do not feed the model a training set, but rather try to derive characteristics from the dataset at run-time in order to structure the dataset in a different way. It's part of the class of unsupervised machine learning algorithms. By Christian Versloot.
