Lambda Calculus with Brainfuck for side effects

  • Edit2: I think the "." And " ' " operations can be performed using pure lambda calculus, so I'm going to leave them in but score them out.
  • It also means you can have long variable names and even whole function definitions as parameters, which could probably work normally, but it means you can also define things on separate lines of you'd like to format the code better.
  • Usually having "=" for assigning functions to variables isn't a part of lambda calculus, and it isn't really clear how it would function syntactically.
  • Strictly speaking the functions in lambda calculus always takes exactly one argument, although it is common to include syntactic sugar for currying.

Objects in Functional Languages

  • Consequently, the goal of this blog post is twofold: first, to show how “objects” can (under some definition) exist in a language like Haskell which has no built-in notion of “object-oriented programming”, and secondly, to show the advantages and disadvantages of code written in this style.
  • Alan Kay's definition is valuable, not just because it describes a powerful approach to programming as implemented in object-oriented languages like SmallTalk and IO, but also because because it describes the behavior of a number of systems that are not programming languages while also capturing what makes those systems powerful: for example, Microsoft's Component Object Model, Plan 9's 9P file system protocol, and arguably even HTTP itself are, from a certain point of view, systems based around doing extremely late-bound message-passing.

5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Deciding to Become a Data Scientist

  • However, I figured he needs to know that being a data scientist is not limited to knowing certain programming languages or machine learning models.
  • I still remember back in 2016 when I started learning about machine learning, using Word2Vec for NLP was relevant, GAN was very bleeding edge that I could not find any working code to generate categorical data, and I had not even heard of Transformer model.
  • Still in line with the first question, but this is what separates data scientist and machine learning engineer.
  • I have personally worked with various data and build various ML products throughout my journey as a data scientist and machine learning engineer.
  • You don’t need to be a good storyteller when working as a machine learning engineer, but you better be a damn good one when you are a data scientist.

SA on high alert after quarantine breach

  • SA's Chief Public Health Officer Professor Nicola Spurrier said she was ''disappointed'' the man had ventured out in public to seven locations across Adelaide on Sunday November 22, after doing just five days of quarantine following a positive test for COVID-19.
  • Professor Spurrier said the man, who attended an English language school at a small campus which is part of Flinders University, where 16 class mates have been identified as close contacts, tested positive on November 17 and had put the population at risk.
  • Zero cases of community transmission have been recorded across the country so far on Sunday as Queensland, the Northern Territory and Tasmania prepared for a wave of interstate visitors, as borders reopen to Victoria.
  • Victoria is preparing to restart hotel quarantine for returning international travellers from December 7 - with details of a cautious reset expected to be announced this week - and jurisdictions including the Northern Territory are preparing to increase capacity.

Programming Path For Those Failing to Learn Programming

  • For this reason, if you like to become a good programmer in any language you want whether it is Python, Java or Go, you should definitely have a good C Programming knowledge.
  • Before learning the Object-Oriented Programming, you should have a basic understanding of what are some of the basic data structures and algorithms.
  • If you like to become a good programmer, you should definitely have an understanding of what the object-oriented concepts are.
  • After you get comfortable with the target programming language you would like to learn, you should try to learn as many of the advanced concepts as possible and use them as a tool.
  • Don’t try to rush into a high-level programming language like Python before understanding what are the things that are hidden behind a programming language.
  • After learning an object-oriented programming language very well, you should start to learn best practices using Clean Code.

30 years later, QBasic is still the best

  • 30 years later, QBasic is still the best when it comes to discovering programming.
  • It introduces one to concepts widely considered harmful, uses awkward syntax for implicit declarations, is not case sensitive, is non-zero-based, etc.
  • Yet, while most of those QBasic concepts are today generally considered as red flags by our peers, they each served a very specific purpose at the time: to keep the language simple and accessible, a notion that every other language has left behind in favor of flexibility, complexity and logic.
  • He smiled, gave me a high-five, and then scribbled down the code in his little notebook so that he could remember later.
  • There was nothing to explain: no complexity, no awkward operator, no abstract concepts, no documentation that needed to be read, no notion of objects/class/methods, no framework to install, no overwhelming menu/buttons in the IDE, no special keyword or parenthesis.

  • All your code & dependencies get packed into a single file which can easily be deployed & run on a server.
  • Because Please can build many languages already (and you can easily write rules to teach it about others) you always invoke one tool to build any language or run any test, simplifying your continuous integration and development processes.
  • We've developed Please in tandem with our internal integration tools, so whenever any of our engineers merges a pull request, we invoke it to make sure any affected tests are passing before merging it in.
  • Because Please allows fine-grained dependencies and knows them for every test, we can run just the affected ones to keep this step fast & lightweight.
  • Got integration tests that need to spin up servers, write files, and find ports?

AI can turn spoken language into photorealistic sign language videos

  • An AI that can produce photorealistic videos of sign language interpreters from speech could improve accessibility by removing the need for humans.
  • Ben Saunders at the University of Surrey, UK, and his colleagues used a neural network that converts spoken language into sign language.
  • The system, called SignGAN, then maps these signs on to a 3D model of the human skeleton.
