Slicing and Indexing with Pandas

  • Pandas, a fast, powerful, flexible and easy to use open source framework that was built on top of Python for data manipulation and analysis, like Numpy, is one of the de-facto libraries for Data Science.
  • I will not go into to much depth with this functionality, since it is very much like indexing and slicing in ordinary Python and Numpy except that the start and end bounds are both returned.
  • Pandas uses a strict inclusion based principle to allow for all of the many methods used for pure label based indexing to function correctly — failure to provide a label that is not in the index will raise KeyError.
  • Pandas uses 0-based indexing that follows the semantics of Python and Numpy slicing.

Load a Large spaCy model on AWS Lambda

  • By using this feature, we can store a large size model to EFS and load it from Lambda functions.
  • In the next step, I create an internet gateway to connect the Internet from the VPC with the following settings.
  • In the next step, I create four subnets(public-spacy-1, public-spacy-2, private-spacy-1, private-spacy-2) with the following settings.
  • Then, I create two NAT gateways and attach it to public subnets to access the Internet from a lambda function in the private subnet.
  • For public subnets, I add a destination 0.0.0.0/0 and a target Internet Gateway to access the Internet.
  • In the EFS console, I select Create file system and make sure that the default VPC and its subnets are selected.
  • Here, we need to specify the same security group and VPC we specified for the EFS mount points and select the private subnets.

Apple and Google’s big privacy push is reshaping the data economy — and cementing their dominance

  • At its latest annual developer conference last month, Apple Inc. announced a suite of changes to its flagship mobile operating system that sent ripples through the data economy.
  • On location, users will soon have more ability to limit apps tracking their movements by giving one-time permission for location access.
  • Android will now automatically revoke an app’s permission to access information such as location after a few months if you haven’t opened the app, which is supposed to prevent sketchy apps you’ve forgotten about from tracking you in the background.
  • Sweeney said that privacy changes being pushed by Apple and Google are likely to kill the cottage industry of companies that do location tracking using smartphone data.
  • Sweeny said another way to look at the steady march of privacy updates is that Apple and Google are slowly killing the business of many apps that helped build the smartphone ecosystem in the first place.

Facebook again admits to wrongly sharing user data with third-party apps

  • Uh oh — Facebook‘s been caught in yet another data scandal.
  • The company has admitted that it mistakenly gave around 5,000 developers unauthorized access to user profiles due to a bug in the platform.
  • The leak breaks Facebook‘s own rules over access to personal information.
  • Since 2018, the platform has automatically blocked developers from getting people’s data if they haven’t interacted with the app in the last 90 days.
  • Once that time limit expires, developers have to again ask users for permission to access their data.
  • Papamiltiadis said Facebook fixed the bug the same day it was found, but didn’t reveal how many users had been affected.
  • The nature of the breach is particularly bad news for Facebook, as third-party access to data was also at the centre of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.
  • The incident was what led Facebook to introduce its 90-day lock-out rule.

Newly discovered form of carbon is more resilient than diamond

  • Diamond, one of the hardest known materials, could have a rival.
  • A new form of carbon that is just as hard as the gemstone but as light as pencil graphite could theoretically be used for applications including gas storage and optoelectronics.

Trump administration wants to end another Obama-era protection for transgender people

  • Washington (CNN) - The Department of Housing and Urban Development announced Wednesday that it plans to roll back an Obama-era rule that barred federally funded homeless shelters from discriminating against transgender people.
  • The department said in a statement that it will soon publish a modification to the 2016 part of the Equal Access Rule, which was put in place under then-President Barack Obama, that required shelters to provide lodging regardless of gender identity.
  • A number of transgender advocacy groups and legal organizations quickly denounced the proposed rule on Wednesday, which comes just weeks after the administration announced it was rolling back another Obama-era regulation, one that prohibits discrimination in health care against patients who are transgender.
  • According to the 2015 survey, 6% of respondents who were homeless said they had been denied access to a shelter in the preceding year, with 74% of those people saying they believed it was because of their gender identity or expression.
