Introvert or Extrovert? Here’s How to Boost Your Productivity

As soon as you step into an office, it’s easy to see that each person has his or her own style of working. Some people naturally gravitate to others and always seem to be in groups. Others are much more efficient if they work at home or in a quiet space. At lunchtime, some people enjoy reading while others meet former coworkers at a new restaurant. How you prefer to work, communicate, and recharge your batteries says a lot about your personality type. And, we’re not just talking about those over-the-top personality surveys you can take on BuzzFeed. By personality type, we’re referring to where you fall on the extrovert-introvert scale.

Cheat Sheets for AI, Neural Networks, Machine Learning, Deep Learning & Big Data

Over the past few months, I have been collecting AI cheat sheets. From time to time I share them with friends and colleagues and recently I have been getting asked a lot, so I decided to organize and share the entire collection. To make things more interesting and give context, I added descriptions and/or excerpts for each major topic. This is the most complete list and the Big-O is at the very end, enjoy… If you like this list, you can let me know  here Neural Networks Neural Networks Cheat Sheet Neural Networks Graphs Neural Networks Graphs Cheat Sheet Neural Network Cheat Sheet Ultimate Guide to Leveraging NLP & Machine Learning for your Chatbot Code Snippets and Github Included Machine Learning Overview Machine Learning Cheat Sheet Machine Learning: Scikit-learn algorithm This machine learning cheat sheet will help you find the right estimator for the job which is the most difficult part.

Books that changed my life

I don’t understand it when someone says, “I read books, but a book has never changed how I see the world.” Books are constantly changing my understanding of myself and how the world works. Here, I share a list of the books that have had the biggest impact on me. Highly Influential These books have had the biggest impact on how I think about, see, and act in the world. Incerto by Nassim Taleb. A couple times a month, I get an email or message asking, “Why do you like Nassim’s books? He’s an arrogant asshole!” Well, I actually kind of like arrogant assholes. But, more importantly, Nassim’s books opened up more new ways of seeing & thinking about things for me than, arguably, all the other books in this list added together. I revisit his books now, 5+ years later, and I’m still learning new things. Note: The Incerto is actually a bundle of four books —  Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan, Antifragile, and The Bed of Procrustes . The Righteous Mind: Why

If You’re Not Worried About Facebook, You Should Be

M ark Zuckerberg wants you to think everything is okay. Once he was done apologizing at his congressional testimony earlier this year, the Zucc made numerous unchallenged claims about Facebook. He reassured us that we have full control over our data, and, since Facebook is not a monopoly, we have plenty of other social media platforms to switch to. The truth is, Zuckerberg knows most people are ignorant about their online privacy. He knows we all rush to click “I agree” without hesitation, and we will continue to use Facebook no matter how shocking the newest data scandal. Facebook is relying on the fact that the masses are ignorant and gullible, for it to survive. It knows that (as long as it remains useful), most of us are willing to hand over all our data, without knowing what this really means, or the consequences it entails. Let me outline the key misconceptions about data privacy, which cause so many of us to feel comfortable about handing over our data. Becau

Why Mars Matters

…or how “homo martis” may evolve to care for Earth in a way “homo sapiens” never have R ecently a friend chided me for being an Elon Musk fanboy. “I’m so tired of all these Muskophiles,” she said when I brushed off the dig. “What is it you’re all so excited about anyway?” “Tesla for starters,” I responded. “There’s a company whose explicit reason for existence is to disrupt our fossil fuel addiction. While most everyone else is whining about global warming, Elon has found a way within capitalism to combat it.” “But what really gets me amped,” I added, “is Mars.” “ Pffft ,” she sounded with a roll of the eyes. “Mars? I am so tired of hearing about Mars! What an escapist’s dream  — blasting off to some other planet when it’s this one that’s in trouble!” The 6th Mass-Extinction She had a point. The Earth is dying. It’s shedding life at a remarkable rate. Ocean acidification is occurring at breakneck speed with devastating consequences to marine life , in seas alr
