[Links of the day] 28/07/2016: LSM trees, Google cloud NLP API , Game Theory counter intuition

  • Log Structured Merge Trees : good and succinct describing the cornerstone data-structure of many DB / KV / data store out there 
  • Cloud Natural Language API : API reveals the structure and meaning of text by offering powerful machine learning models in an easy to use REST API. I can hear so many "sentiment" analisys start up out there suddenly realizing that their day our counted.. 
  • Game Theory Is Really Counterintuitive : Game theory should be one of the mandatory class to be taken at university along with statistics. Once you understand the game principle you gain a significant edge in most human interaction. However, you have to train your brain to bypass its natural inclination and relearn the rules of the game.
