I’m often asked to explain what our Artificial Intelligence actually does. My first reflex is to jump to the whiteboard and gush about the magic of vector space embeddings over messy diagrams of deep neural network architectures. Usually, my audience politely waits until I pause to catch my breath, before gently explaining that they wanted to understand what it means for an end-user.
It’s a great question, and it’s easy to explain. Without any knowledge of vector space embeddings.
On average, job applicants have six seconds to impress a hiring manager with their resume; that’s barely enough time to tie your shoelaces. The hiring process is ruthless in almost every industry and you, as a candidate, often won’t have much time or space to tell a potential employer everything you want them to know. Armed with this information, how might you begin to set yourself up for success?
As a start, try skimming your resume to see if it answers the following questions:
There’s a difference between simply stating your skills and demonstrating where, how, and to what extent…
Candidates often ask us for educational resources to help them break into the world of “Big Data”. For people new to the field, I recommend starting off with podcasts that explore solutions to the problems frequently encountered by engineers who deal with large-scale data. Here are some of my favorites:
Undecided on your next steps? Udacity has some career advice that explains the difference between Data Analyst, Scientist and Engineer roles.

I’ve struggled with the Facebook API so I thought I would do a quick recap of the solution I implemented in Python. In doing so, I had to make sure that the number of API calls was limited so avoid Error 17 — user request limit reached.
The most important…
If you got stuck like me, here are some fixes. Most of these stem from a) typos and b) I assume, earlier versions of EJS and Express.
The twitter_test.js file…
The Lego Digital Designer is an awesome tool for designing a new creation on your computer and creating a build guide. You can then use the Lego Pick a Brick site to buy all the bricks you need. A Raspberry Pi case can be put together for ~$20.
There are some caveats however:
Following the steps on the Heroku site for getting started with python guide I ran into a few issue-ettes. Below are some scrappy notes that could be used to accompany the guide if you run into the same issues that I did.
Before using the quickstart guide on the Heroku site itself, you’ll need to have ssh-keygen installed. The Open-SSH package for Windows can be downloaded from here: http://sshwindows.sourceforge.net/download. On installation you don’t need the server component and the PATH variable should be updated automatically to include the location of \bin\ssh-keygen.exe. WARNING: My PATH was destroyed twice after installing SSH…
