A few lovingly curated pieces of information from me to you.

WildML on Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN)

WildML continues to kill it with their blog posts and to be one of my favorites on the subject. It's just damn good work. Enjoy this overview and link out fest to many other good and related resources on recurrent neural networking wisdom. Of particular import to me were various use cases outlined throughout this post and the link throughs. A couple in particular give me hope for an exciting project I'm working on in South America right now.

Tensor Flow Distributed

If you keep up with Tensorflow for doing machine learning; and you should. Then this is a good piece of the documentation to become familiar with I think. My observation is that it is very granular and sorely in need of resource management (Mesos or Kubernetes) and/or orchestration (Ansible might be fun) if you want to stay granular.

A Reminder of our Mortality

This tree is over 1000 years old. When I encounter life like this it really tends to put things into perspective. When I hit 100 I won't be nearly as magnificent as this tree at 1000. So, yes, a reminder of our mortality. But, that is a good thing.
