Sr. Data Scientist Jonathan Balaban's Piece on Turi Create in Towards Data Science
By Emily Wilson • April 08, 2018
Metis Sr. Data Scientist Jonathan Balaban recently wrote 3 Questions Business Leaders Should Be Asking About Apple's New Machine Learning Kit, published in Towards Data Science. In the piece, he talks about Turi Create, which is Apple's open source package that makes it easier for developers to put the power of machine learning into their apps. Apple has claimed Turi Create allows users to “focus on tasks instead of algorithms.” And as Jonathan notes, "that’s music to the ears of business leaders with limited time and resources!"
He goes on to explain that Turi Create "could become a game-changer for your business — even if your business is still getting up to speed on the latest in AI." But how?
To guide you, his post provides (1) the basics of Turi Create, (2) how Apple is using the platform, and (3) how you might creatively apply it to your work.
In this post, learn how you can gain access to three types of YouTube data: the videos themselves for use in computer vision tasks, the video transcripts for natural language processing (NLP), and video search results for hybrid machine learning efforts.
We recently hosted two related live online Ask Me Anything sessions on our Community Slack Channel. The first was with Caroline Csernus, Bootcamp Program Manager in Chicago, and the second was with Jesel Roosevelt, Bootcamp Program Manager in NYC. Each answered questions about the overall Data Science Bootcamp experience, plus some specific questions pertaining to how things run at each location. Read highlights here.
