Languages and DevOps On April 17, Saturday, 2021

"The right tool for the job" is a much more complex question in an existing IT environment than it is in woodworking. Assess the language with regard to how well it actually does the job you need to do. If you choose ASP.NET today, will it be a solid choice tomorrow? Does the tool do what you want, or will you be working around faults to get there? Do the tools have modules/add-ons that customize it for your target?

Best drug cocktails to counter complex diseases On April 17, Saturday, 2021

Facebook AI and the Helmholtz Zentrum Munchen have developed a new tool to help find effective drug cocktails. CPA (Compositional Perturbation Autoencoder) model predicts the effects of drug combinations, dosages, timing, and even other types of interventions. Model uses a novel self-supervision technique to observe cells treated with a finite number of drugs. It predicts the effect of unseen combinations and can extrapolate combinations of A+C, B+C or even how A+B interacts with C+D. The work is now available to the research community as a preprint on bioRxiv.

Manifestation of Transformation based models in NLP for longer sequences On March 26, Friday, 2021

Natural language processing (NLP) models based on Transformers are a mainstay of modern NLP research. Key innovation in Transformers is the introduction of a self-attention mechanism, which computes similarity scores for all pairs of positions in an input sequence. But, current hardware and model sizes typically limit the input sequence to roughly 512 tokens. This prevents Transformers from being directly applicable to tasks that require larger context, like question answering, document summarization or genome fragment classification.

Quantum computing devices can overcome the technological and thermodynamical limits of classical computation. The proposed model uses elements of quantum mechanics and classical mechanics for the non-linearity. The "Hintons" in the paper title is an homage to Geoffrey Hinton, who coined the term "quantum entanglement" to refer to the elementary excitation of the quantum field from which optical quantum neural networks are made.

It can be tempting to use an entire palette of colors and six different Google fonts, but less is...way less confusing. Using partial paths gives you the freedom to make changes and push to production without having to go back and look for references to a previous domain. It's more than likely that you'll have multiple page templates and designs, but users shouldn't think they've navigated to a new website or caught you in the middle of a theme update when the open a new page.
