Ability to generalize - A measure of intelligence ?

Knowledge acquisition is about building generalization capabilities. In machine learning world, generalization refer to the model's ability to make accurate predictions from never before seen data. Well generalized models possess intelligence to work on data from new scenarios. This is true for human intelligence also. Children start learning from examples and initially they fail to respond properly to unforeseen situations. Gradually they acquire generalization skills to respond to all… Continue

You can't containerize an appliance: why Kubernetes and high performance object storage are tech's new building blocks.

There are two forces that are fundamentally remaking the technology landscape today. One is Kubernetes and the other is high performance Object Storage. They are powering (or are shaped by, depending on your perspective) modern, data-rich applications that include AI/ML and application logs. Either way, modern applications need Kubernetes and Object Storage and Kubernetes and Object Storage owe their rise in part to these same modern applications.

They are symbiotic and they are…
