Using GPU-powered Virtual Machines in the Cloud for your Machine Learning and Deep Learning workloads

Until a few years ago running Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Neural Networks required owning really powerful computers with lots of CPUs or even clusters of machines. With the adoption of GPUs for non-graphics related workloads new opportunities became available. You can now run many of your workloads in a much shorter period of time…


Machine Learning para principiantes – Bonus Track: visualización de datos con PowerBI e interacción desde un bot

Si después de crear los experimentos te quedaste con ganas de más, en este ultimo capítulo veremos como exporter los datos resultantes para que puedan ser consumidos tanto desde PowerBI como desde un bot conversacional. Lo primero que debemos hacer es cambiar el tipo de datos de la columna “Drafted” a entero, así que vamos…
