Best AI and Data science newsletters and podcasts

If you want to be updated about all the great stuff that's going on in data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence, you can go crazy. There is simply too much information and sources and you cannot possibly keep up with all of them.

I'm facing this right now, as I have started my PhD. studies. I will be doing research into deep learning and the development in this area is so fast, that you would be amazed. So I've searched for resources that can do some filtering for me and have great added value.

So here is the list of learning material, that will keep you updated and busy every week and is keeping me busy right now.

Newsletters

AI Weekly http://aiweekly.co/ - Probably my favorite newsletter. All you need to know about news and learning material for AI.

Data Science Weekly http://www.datascienceweekly.org/ - I think, that the name speaks for itself.

Python Weekly http://www.pythonweekly.com/ - This is not only about AI and machine learning topics, but Python is one of the main languages to do this and there is always lot of new material for me every week.

insideBIGDATA http://insidebigdata.com/ - BIG data newsleter.

O’Reilly Data http://www.oreilly.com/data/newsletter.csp - Bit more boring and commercial oriented, but there are always few interesting links about data science.

Connectionists http://dove.ccs.fau.edu/dawei/ICM/connectionists.html - This is for researchers. Lot of news about conferences, workshops, even open positions, all around the world.

Data Science http://datascience.stackexchange.com/ - Data Science stack exchange newsletters are great summaries about what people are finding hard to do in data science.

Open Data http://opendata.stackexchange.com/ - New data-sets every week, to find or give.

O’Reilly Artificial Intelligence http://www.oreilly.com/ai/newsletter.html - Just as O'Reilly Data newsletter, bit boring and commercial oriented, but there are always few interesting links about AI.

Data Elixir http://dataelixir.com/ - Another data science newsletter.

Data Machina https://tinyletter.com/datamachina - ... and yet another :)

Hacker Newsletter http://www.hackernewsletter.com/ - This newsletter is not about data science, but it will keep you entertained in intelligent way when you need a break.

Beer, Wine and Spirits http://alcohol.stackexchange.com/ - This is just for fun, and because I like beer and wine :)

Podcasts

Becoming a Data Scientist http://www.becomingadatascientist.com/ - How to get from student to master.

Data Skeptic http://dataskeptic.com/ - Skeptical look at data and research, or how to avoid wrong conclusions.

Learning Machines 101 http://www.learningmachines101.com/ - Great source for learning new machine learning techniques.

Talking Machines http://www.thetalkingmachines.com/ - Data scientists about their experiences.

You Are Not So Smart https://youarenotsosmart.com/ - This is about psychology, but it will help you to avoid biases in your research and your life.

ProLinks #65 - North Korea, Cryptocurrencies, Propaganda and more

Tech The Incredible Rise of North Korea’s Hacking Army He was right. As the newspapers soon reported, more than sixteen million dollars was withdrawn from roughly seventeen hundred 7-Eleven A.T.M.s across Japan that morning, using data stolen from South Africa’s Standard Bank. The newspapers surmised that 7-Elevens had been targeted because they were the only convenience stores in Japan whose cash terminals all accepted foreign cards. Soon after the raids, the withdrawal limit for many A.T.M.s in the country was reduced to fifty thousand yen Why Cryptocurrency Is A Giant Fraud ❧ Current Affairs Schweikert is partly right: “selling it as a revolution” is a hugely important part of why cryptocurrency is succeeding. But as is generally the case when someone is trying to sell you something, the whole thing should seem extremely fishy. In fact, much of the cryptocurrency pitch is worse than fishy. It’s downright fraudulent, promising people benefits that they will not get and trying

ProLinks Biometrics #49 - How biometrics is making spying hard

In this edition the highlight for me is an article from Yahoo news about the trouble spy agencies are in because of biometrics and surveillance (I love irony). Other than that, you can read about reducing friction or using biometrics to track police (again, I love irony). Enjoy! Biometrics How biometrics has changed spying Biometrics at borders control, using it to issue documents or checking at hotels is making work of spies using fake identities hard to impossible, depending on a state. For example, Singapore will alert security forces if somebody is taking too long to check into a hotel . Read the linked article to find out much more. Source: privateinternetaccess.com Reducing friction Nowadays is all about the user experience and friction or the lack of it. User do not like to make unnecessary actions to accomplish something . Reducing friction is mostly great, but there are also downsides, as overusing social networks. Making sure that policemen are working Pol

ProLinks #11

First ProLinks edition in 2018 brings a lot of links for IT professionals including solid Ruby criticism. Also interesting links about society, science and more inside. IT Managing Engineers with Ron Lichty The Problem Solver - Good developers are good problem solvers. They turn each task into a series of problems they have to solve. Energy Efficiency: A New Concern for Application Software Developers - The prevalence and ubiquity of mobile computing platforms, such as smartphones, tablets, smart watches, and smart glasses, have changed the way people use and interact with software. Clever ideas that failed -  The cleverness of an idea is proportionate to its odds of failure. SSH Security and You - /bin/false is *not* security - I thought to myself, "Fine, no shell for me. I wonder if port forwarding works?" The 100x Engineer - If we want to be 100x engineers — engineers who have 100x the impact of ye’ old 1x engineer—how do we accomplish tha

Are there types of programmers?

As a response to my previous post about why there is so many programming languages I got very interesting answer about types of programmers. Than I have read linked article about Mort, Elvis, Einstein, and You  and subsequently post The Two Types of Programmers  which lead me to The Fourteen Types of Programmers .  As you have probably realized, there are many different opinions on this topic. So what is the reality? Let me add to the pile of opinions. It always comes down to this - How do we set the criteria on which we want to categorize. Based on these criteria we can form clusters. These clusters of programmers are than our categories. You could probably do this with clustering algorithm if you can form reasonable dataset. So basically the question how many types of programmers are there  cannot be answered without specifying your criteria. And from this misunderstanding of how the question works comes discussions about how many categories there is. There

ProLinks #62 - AI, Statistics, Tarkovsky and more

Tech Are Deep Neural Networks Dramatically Overfitted? The fundamental idea in MDL is to view learning as data compression. By compressing the data, we need to discover regularity or patterns in the data with the high potentiality to generalize to unseen samples. Information bottleneck theory believes that a deep neural network is trained first to represent the data by minimizing the generalization error and then learn to compress this representation by trimming noise. The Therapy-App Fantasy “It would clearly be naïve for psychotherapists to turn a blind eye to science, or to be ‘against’ scientific methodology,” he wrote. “But the attempt to present psychotherapy as a hard science is merely an attempt to make it a convincing competitor in the marketplace. It is a sign, in other words, of a misguided wish to make psychotherapy both respectable and servile to the very consumerism it is supposed to help people deal with.” (Psychotherapy, he points out, emerges historically just as “t
