The best programming language to learn

InfoWorld on 24/06/2019 pm30 12:00:00

Everyone is learning to write software these days. That means every school, MOOC, and training site needs to embrace a first language for the young Padawans. Some places, like fusty Harvard, still cling to the 70’s era C, but many schools are oscillating between JavaScript, Python, and Java. One is buried in every browser, one is the clean choice of the social sciences, and one is the type-rich preference of more mathematically-minded folks.Is one the best choice? Is one clearly better than the others? Or are they all equally likely to send a substantial number of students screaming into their pillows at night? Let’s examine the best reasons to learn Java, Python, or JavaScript.To read this article in full, please... Read the article

The human side of cloud migration

InfoWorld on 21/06/2019 pm30 12:00:00

The organization must change around the use of cloud computing. This is a fact that most won’t dispute. How it changes, and what changes, is where the conflict begins.Keep in mind that we’re not simply replacing on-premises servers with virtual ones in the cloud. We’re replacing and retooling people. This means disrupting lives, and, in some instances, making others the victims of our own mistakes if we make the wrong calls.[ What is cloud computing? Everything you need to know now. | Also: InfoWorld’s David Linthicum explains how to move into a cloud career from traditional IT. ] In every other cloud project that I’ve done in the past 10 years, I’ve faced reorganization challenges, skill set challenges, and procedure challenges—all...

Last week we enhanced a map interface with voice commands using annyang. This week we’ll extend our multi-modal interface even further by adding simple head-tracking using pico.js. Pico.js is a minimal JavaScript library that is closer to a proof-of-concept than a production library, but it seems to work the best among the face detection libraries I’ve investigated.To read this article in full, please click here(Insider Story) Read the article

Supervised learning explained

InfoWorld on 19/06/2019 pm30 12:00:00

Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence that includes algorithms for automatically creating models from data. At a high level, there are four kinds of machine learning: supervised learning, unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, and active machine learning. Since reinforcement learning and active machine learning are relatively new, they are sometimes omitted from lists of this kind. You could also add semi-supervised learning to the list, and not be wrong.To read this article in full, please click here Read the article
