  • Rules of Machine Learning:Best Practices for ML Engineering -This document is intended to help those with a basic knowledge of machine learning get the benefit of best practices in machine learning from around Google. It presents a style for machine learning, similar to the Google C++ Style Guide and other popular guides to practical programming. 
  • The dynamical structure of political corruption networks : this is a really fascinating paper presenting an analysis of corruption and the network of individuals participating in corruption. Interesting enough: corruption runs in small groups that rarely comprise more than eight people, in networks that have hubs and a modular structure that encompasses more than one corruption scandal.
  • Price Manipulation in the Bitcoin Ecosystem : A single actor likely drove the USD/BTC exchange rate from $150 to $1000 in 2 months.
