Reading an article called “Forecasting with artificial neural networks: The state of the art”, published in…1998. The state of the art back then had 2 layers and 40 neurons. #CannotCiteSomethingThisOutdated
Texas Hold’em is a much more interesting game than Go when it comes to real-world artificial intelligence application, since many important real world issues inherently involves imperfect information. 5 days into the game and the human pros are losing badly.
Claudico battles Donger Kim, Jason Les, Bjorn Li, Doug Polk in Brains vs. AI at Rivers Casion, the first time that a computer program has played Heads-up No-limit Texas Hold’em in competition with top human players.

TensorFlow up and running with CUDA 8.0. Life-saving tip: always explicitly enter your CUDA and cuDNN versions during configuration.
My first impression is TF is a bit behind Nervana Neon in terms of training speed and ease of use. Too bad the latter now belongs to Intel, which clearly wants to promote its own Pentium-based Xeon Phi over Nvidia GPU.
cuDNN and CNMeM are must-haves when training neutral networks with Theano. 2x performance gain in practical usage.
For students interested in working in the finance field, learning how to write code is more important than ever before.
