D4S Sunday Briefing #22

A weekly newsletter with the latest developments in Data Science and Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence.

Issue #22

Oct 27, 2019

Dear friends,

Welcome to the latest edition of Sunday Briefing. This week we are taking a look at some of the less explored aspects of math and data science with a History of Mathematics, a nice post on Linear Programming, some advice on how to generate labels for unlabeled data and a comparison of statistical and mathematical modeling approaches.

We also consider a paper discussing the limitations of current neuroscience approaches by applying them to relatively simple CPUs, a new library for Graph Statistics in Python and a general framework for sampling temporal networks in an unbiased way.

Finally, in our video of the week Joe Jevnik guides us through a 2017 tutorial on using Neural Networks for Time Series Prediction.

If you think one of your friends or colleagues would enjoy this newsletter, just go ahead and forward this email to them and help us grow!

Semper discentes,

The D4S team
