Links of the day 17 - 02 - 2015

Today's links 17/2/2015: #Bigdata statistics theorems, teaching computer to make music, #Micorservices simulator
  • Central Limit Theorem : reminder on this crucial theorem for statistics, i.e. how to reason about sample and their impact on our results.
  • Teaching Computer to Write Its Own Music : a demonstration that computation could complement human creativity
  • Bayes Theorem : the benefit of integrating Bayesian techniques to analyse data vs pure frequentist based approach.
  • Spigo : Simulate Protocol Interactions in Go using nanoservice actors. Suitable for fairly large scale simulations, runs well up to 100,000 independent nanoservice actors. Two architectures are implemented. One creates a peer to peer social network (fsm and pirates). The other is based on NetflixOSS microservices in a more tree structured model.
