[Links of the Day] 21/06/2018 : TCP's BBR , Hierarchical convoluted neural network, The Government IT self-harm playbook

  • BBR : BRR seems like a great alternative to CUBIC or RENO for server-side optimization. Even if you have to be a little bit careful if you run in a mixed environment as a server running BBR will literally asphyxiate other server running CUBIC within the same environment. 
  • Tree-CNN : the authors describe a Hierarchical Deep Convolutional Neural Network and demonstrate that they are able to achieve greater accuracy with a lower training effort versus existing approach. 
  • Government IT Self-Harm Playbook : this is a must-read for anybody in IT, be a small or large corporation, private or public organization. To be honest I can see these type of mistakes happening all over the corporate world. It's easier to spot them in large corporation undergoing "digital transformation". Anyway, read it, learn from it.
