Weekly Journal: Week 4, 2019


New Article last week – spent some time to get older posts onto Medium and wrote a new one on the Banking Royal Commission

I got back onto Twitter just a little… I found some useful conversations are happening there.


In the zone again last week refining some data processing modules and building tools to dynamically create training sets. Working on the final touches of an example project I want to write about – but not there quite yet…


This week there was some great reading…

Learning Computer Architecture with Raspberry Pi by Eben Upton

Artificial Intelligence for Humans, Volume 1: Fundamental Algorithms Jeff Heaton

Text Classification using Neural Networks

Report on Text Classification using CNN, RNN & HAN

Understand TensorFlow by mimicking its API from scratch

There was a ton more reading on AI, too much to put here – but I can highly recommend Medium as a place to get great articles on AI.

General Thinking

I was struggling for inspiration last week, so I sent an email to a few clients asking them what was on their minds. Not everyone was able to provide a topic – instead there were some spectacularly great ideas for topics and others just told me why they could not give me a topic.

Now that the article is out, the first newsletter for 2019 is due out this week!
