1. Google TV Faces Some Prime-Time Challenges
A look at some of the practical issues before Google TV dominates the world.
3. Prediction Optimizers
A nice post on Google’s Prediction API. Interestingly, this is also my view of Google API. I expect that most of the people will be happy to use Google’s built in model and move on. Only a small group of machine learning / data mining researchers will try to build or tweak the models. Will this be a tipping point bringing Machine Learning to the masses ? Machine Learning pervades all the digital world from Google , Amazon, NetFlix (not to say FBI or NSA) but surprisingly low number of people seem to have heard of it. I also think that this will make a GREAT cloud computing service – Probably Amazon or Microsoft should give it a test run !
4. My Contrarian Stance on Facebook and Privacy
A very thoughtful post by Tim O’Reilly . He raises some very valid points and also (improbably) defends it too ! Whatever is one’s opinion about Facebook we have to accept that they keep experimenting (sometimes with buggy code 😉 ) and keep pushing the envelope for which they have to be commended. Their relentless innovation also means that it is hard for any other social network to ever topple them – atleast in the near term.
