Data Scientist Job — Is It Worth the Sacrifices Made?

  • Let’s say we learn 4 hours per week (where often a recommended time in the online courses).
  • In my personal opinion, Online courses are worth as much as their price — It is good to improve/review your skill, but don’t rely solely on this to be a Data Scientist.
  • The answer is Yes and No. Yes, because for a newbie, you would need a direction, professional review, and connection to break into a Data Science and No because you could get all the necessary skills from books or online courses.
  • My education time to Master’s Degree takes six years with three-four Years of professional as a Researcher, and a few months to review my technical skills once more before becoming a Data Scientist.
  • In any way you choose, prepare to spend lots of time and money on obtaining the necessary skills.

Is Facebook even safe anymore?

  • Data breaches on Facebook has reached it's peak in 2020 and it's not even half yet.
  • Everyday I wake up and scroll through reddit while having my breakfast, and I go through the news of a data breach, hackers selling accounts, or something similar where the user is getting compromised.
  • A month ago, a research team at Cyble reported that 267Million Facebook Accounts were sold on the dark web by hackers for just 540$.
  • Fortunately, there were no passwords in the data but it had email addresses, names, Facebook IDs, dates of birth and phone numbers.
  • They stated that the email data was "unintentionally uploaded to Facebook," and it is now getting deleted.
  • Now as a user, this is very dangerous since your data shouldn't be treated like that as it is sensitive and breaches can put you at risks.
  • But one thing is for sure, it isn't safe anymore.

The Faces of Scenius

  • These two men are looking for the best way to unite curious people with a common goal of learning, pushing each other, and making meaningful impacts on the world.
  • After a decade working in investment banking and growing a start-up in New York City, Packy McCormick realized he was boring.
  • A few of the best are place based ritual, non-zero-sum competition, and network effects of success.
  • In addition to place-based ritual, non-zero-sum competition and network effects of success are two elements of scenius that go hand in hand.
  • At a moment in history when news of death and quarantine weighs our spirits with grief, it’s uplifting to learn about the people working toward progress.
  • It’s uplifting to find two wonderful people working on the same thing – independent of and unbeknownst to one another.

Rust: Dropping heavy things in another thread can make your code 10000 times faster

  • When working on Rust applications or CLIs that need to show something to the end user as fast as possible I often find that a significant chunk of the time is usually spent not in doing any computations, but in dropping large data structures at the end of the function.
  • This is because Rust needs to drop the value of a and deallocate all memory it was using before it can return.
  • This really sucks for UIs and interactive CLIs. We got all needed data to respond to a user request, but can't do anything with it until we finish cleaning things up!
  • The function returns right away and somewhere in the future the other thread will start doing the work of dropping the data structure and deallocating all used memory.

Chrome moves to automatically block abusive notification requests

  • Google has announced it’s cracking down on sites that abuse notifications starting from Chrome 84, which will drop on July 14.
  • Sites with intrusive notifications and permission requests will be filtered under a “quieter notifications UI,” which will also warn users that the site might be trying to trick them.
  • Upon launch, the new notification protections will only affect permission requests from sites you’ve not already approved, but Google might extend this to all offenders in the future.
  • If you own an abusive site, Google will inform you of any notification violations in the Search Console, and you’ll also receive an email about it at least 30 days prior to enforcement.
  • The company has also put out a guide on how to fix abusive notifications experiences in order to avoid getting placed on the quieter notification UI.

Carnival of Space 662

  • Aerion, Spike and Boom are continuing with supersonic testing is different from actually getting billions in funding and executing to reach and operate a commercial service.
  • The Aerion AS2 has a target price of $120 Million each.
  • SpaceX Starship is in the process of leapfrogging supersonic (1.5-2.5 times the speed of sound) to hypersonic (20-30 times the speed of sound).
  • Musk says mass-produced SpaceX Starships will cost $5 million each.
  • They would be ten over times faster than supersonic planes and would have more payload.
  • All international cargo and passenger travel could be monopolized by SpaceX.
  • SN4 will have one engine and a lower pressure 200-meter flight.
  • SpaceX is already assembling Starship SN5.
  • Newer Starships will switch to a new steel alloy that has higher strength under cryo temperatures.
  • The new material will be able to handle higher pressures for higher altitude and orbital flights.
