What is data annotation? And how is data annotation applied in ML? In this article, we are delving deep to answer these key questions. Data annotation is valuable to ML and has contributed immensely to some of the cutting-edge technologies we enjoy today. Data annotators, or the invisible workers in the ML workforce, are needed more now than ever before.

We chatted with Jonas Bonér, CEO and Founder of Lightbend about Akka Serverless and what makes it so different from other architectures. Jonas explains how data is kept secure in Akka Serverless and what limitations it removes with its data-centric backend application architecture.
Kubernetes is incredibly valuable for DevOps and IT teams because it treats infrastructure as code, delivering full scale automation to both stateful and stateless components of the software stack. If you only use Kubernetes for the applications, you are only tapping a fractional amount of the value. Let’s explore this a little deeper.
How do you create Artificial General Intelligence (AGI)? No one precisely knows. If we wait for a complete understanding with robust mathematical models of AGI, we may never get started. Given that, a more experimental and iterative development approach is in order.
As tedious as it may be, though, knowledge sharing and documentation should be a basic part of the software development cycle. Doing so takes time, but it’s worth it. Why is it so important to have strong knowledge sharing and documentation of code? This article will example four key reasons.
Scriptless testing offers some immediate benefits to three common testing roles in most organisations: business testers, developers and test engineers. Once scriptless is introduced among these three groups, organisations can achieve up to 85 to 90 per cent test automation coverage on each and every regression cycle.
Securing sensitive data (called “secrets”) — such as passwords, machine credentials, and API keys — is not always simple to manage manually, especially at an enterprise scale. This article explores the importance of secrets management, and how Puppet and HashiCorp Vault adds an extra layer of protection as you continue to build out your cybersecurity strategy.
With Apache Cassandra 4.0, you not only get the direct improvements to performance added by the Apache Cassandra committers, you also unlock the ability to take advantage of seven years of improvements in the JVM itself. This article focuses on improvements in Java garbage collection that Cassandra 4.0 coupled with Java 16 offers over Cassandra 3.11 on Java 8.
SADA CTO Miles Ward has joined the FinOps Governing Board as a voting member to help craft Foundation strategy and direction. To better understand the importance of Cloud Financial Management and the role of the Foundation, we asked Miles a few questions.
Before 2011, certificate lifespans ran as long as a decade. In 2012, they were shortened to five years. In 2015, that became three years and in 2018, two years. As of September 2020, that became just one year. Certificate lifespans are likely to get even shorter down the line.
Overall, Java developers love Spring/Spring Boot because it saves them time and supports their testing experiences. The Diffblue Survey found that Spring’s standardized testing approach makes it easier to apply a technique from artificial intelligence (AI) called Reinforcement Learning to automate test-writing. Making this work for Java developers can slash development time as well as improve code coverage.
The 2020 State of DevOps Report by Puppet shows that organizations leveraging DevOps have highly effective change management and improved their remediation speed around critical security vulnerabilities as they have integrated security fully into the software delivery process.
It’s been three years since the GDPR was enforced. Compliance with the EU data privacy regulation remains an ongoing challenge for organisations as do raising cyber security expectations and threats. Industry experts in the technology and software space share their reflections.
In this tutorial, Nadine Farah, senior developer advocate at Rockset shows you how to create a sample app to analyze weather and pollution data. By the end of this tutorial, you will know how to create a real-time analytics system and how to connect Rockset to MongoDB Atlas.
