JupyterLab is ready for users

We are proud to announce the beta release series of JupyterLab, the next-generation web-based interface for Project Jupyter.tl;dr: JupyterLab is ready for daily use (installation, documentation, try it with Binder)JupyterLab is an interactive development environment for working with notebooks, code, and data.The Evolution of the Jupyter NotebookProject Jupyter exists to develop open-source software, open standards, and services for interactive and reproducible computing.Since 2011, the Jupyter Notebook has been our flagship project for creating reproducible computational narratives. The Jupyter Notebook enables users to create and share documents that combine live code with narrative text, mathematical equations, visualizations, interactive controls, and other rich output. It also provides building blocks for interactive computing with data: a file browser, terminals, and a text editor.The Jupyter Notebook has become ubiquitous with the rapid growth of data science and machine learning and the rising popularity of open-source software in industry and academia:Today there are millions of users of

Face-verify.js: Monitoring who is physically looking at a website

tl;dr: This is a demo project showing how Machine Box tech can be integrated into JavaScript applications.Facebox can take an image and tell you how many faces it sees, as well as who those faces belong to provided you have shown it a single example previously.We can use this capability to build additional security into our web apps so we can see how many people are watching the screen and who they are. Using the webcam with some JavaScript and Facebox, we can periodically check to ensure only authorised people can see the information that users consider sensitive.A working demo of this project is available: Check out the Face Verify project on GitHubTwo minute video showing how Face Verify works in practiceUse caseBanks don’t want private account details (like the user’s current balance and credit limits etc) being seen by anybody other than the account holder.The Face Verify technique can be

Parallels Toolbox 1.5 for Windows adds presentation mode and disk cleanup tool

Parallels may be best known for its virtualization software for Mac, but the company is also active in the Windows scene. One of its most interesting programs is Toolbox, which, as its name suggests, offers a suite of tools to help power users make the most of their PC. And, today, it gets an update, as Parallels releases Toolbox 1.5 for Windows. The new version adds a presentation mode, a disk cleanup tool and an option to quickly change your display’s resolution. The presentation mode is designed so that it prevents your Windows device from entering sleep mode and automatically… [Continue Reading]

A promenade of PyTorch

For the past two years, I’ve been quite heavily invested in
TensorFlow, either writing papers about it, giving
talks on how to extend its backend or using it for my own deep learning
research. As part of this journey, I’ve gotten quite a good sense of both
TensorFlow’s strong points as well as weaknesses – or simply architectural
decisions – that leave room for competition. That said, I have recently joined
the PyTorch team at Facebook AI Research (FAIR), arguably TensorFlow’s biggest
competitor to date, and currently much favored in the research community for
reasons that will become apparent in subsequent paragraphs.

In this article, I want to provide a sweeping promenade of PyTorch (having given
a tour of
TensorFlow
in another blog post), shedding some light on its raîson d’être and giving an
overview of its API.

Overview and Philosophy

Let’s begin by reviewing what PyTorch is fundamentally, what programming model
it imposes on its users and how it fits into the existing deep learning
framework

Say goodbye to Swype

Android and iOS users who are not happy with the stock keyboard on their device have lots of third-party options to choose from. Among the established alternatives is Swype, which has been available for nearly five years on Android and over three on iOS. It’s actually one of the first third-party keyboards I tried on both platforms. Swype, however, hasn’t really caught on in quite the same way that, say, SwiftKey has, which is likely the reason why the company behind the app, Nuance, has announced that it’s reached “end of development.” In other words, Swype users, your favorite keyboard… [Continue Reading]
