Edge Computing + Serverless Computing = Ephemeral Computing

What is Edge Computing? The concept of Edge Computing defines it as a networked computing component that resides at the periphery of the network. As such it functions as an interface between the network and the physical world. The “edge” can be composed of devices like cameras, sensors or actuators. Edge Computing is based on […]

The power of experiments

The Power of Experiments

Have you logged into Facebook recently? Searched for something on Google? Chosen a movie on Netflix? If so, you’ve probably been an unwitting participant in a variety of experiments also known as randomized controlled trials designed to test the impact of different online experiences. Once an esoteric tool for academic research, the randomized controlled trial […]

A/B Testing

Why is A/B testing important?

A/B testing is essential to identify strengths and weaknesses of your app or service to improve it. A/B testing is a variable-experimentation technique to compare two versions of the same thing to see which one performs better. For example, you can test two different landing pages, two different subject lines, or two different offers. The […]

There are fundamental Problems how we train AI

The current machine learning training and testing process is not rigorous enough to ensure that the models being trained will work in the real world. During the training process many different models can be produced that all perform equally well when tested in lab settings and differ only in small, arbitrary ways. The differences stem […]

Here’s why Artificial Intelligence is so power-hungry

Artificial intelligence is getting more expensive to develop, and the cost is growing faster than the energy efficiency of the models. This is because they are trained many times with different structures, and the best one is selected. For example a model called Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT) used 3.3 billion words from English books […]

LAL – Little Activity Language

lal is a lightweight Service composition and execution language that is tailored towards the requirements of mobile infrastructures. lal has a considerable small set of abstractions that are easy to understand for people – in comparison with workflow languages like BPEL or YAWL. The latter are used to specify each step that is necessary towards […]
