The Knoyd team is currently spread out all over the world (Chile, Peru and Austria) and I am living on the road for quite a while now. I had an idea to code up an interactive map for our travel blog and thought it would be nice to share with you how to do it yourself.
Gut feeling used to be the biggest asset of successful businessmen in the past. Nowadays, intuition still plays an important role, but with all the available knowledge and technologies, there has been a significant shift. One of the most important sources of a competitive advantage these days is data. Big Data is a hype and undoubtedly a bandwagon to jump on. But how?
For this blog post we decided to jump on the PokémonGO hype and add a bit of science into the craze. Our goal is to give you the optimal portfolio of Pokémon to train, so you can be as effective as possible against a wide variety of opponents. As each Pokémon has its strengths and weaknesses, we created clusters of Pokémon with similar characteristics and looked at the few selected ones allowing the player to compete against as many different enemies as possible.
For our latest blog, we took discussion comments from the Slovak sports community website sport.sk and fed them to our deep learning model. We wanted to see, whether we could teach a model to generate these comments automatically from all the past comments we had and if it was going to learn the structures and nuances used in them. Enjoy! (Article is both in Slovak and English).
May was an eventful month. In the first two weeks, we were very excited to launch our data science bootcamp Basecamp! Now that the application process is open, all prospects can finally apply and set off on an adventurous journey to becoming qualified data scientists with us. What an exciting time! But that was just the beginning. In the second half of the month, we have visited three different European capitals to attend three conferences: Big Data Universe in Budapest, Big Data & Data Science Conference in Paris, and last but not least Pioneers Festival in Vienna.
It always gives us great pleasure to see, when one of our clients gets recognition for the great work they are doing. It is even better, if they are enabling people from developing countries to do things, which were not possible only a little while ago. This is exactly what FinAccel is doing.
