I have attended a security conference recently. To my surprise, a great portion of accepted papers use some kind of Machine Learning techniques to achieve certain security targets. While I am NOT going to criticize any of the papers, this … Continue reading
“Building Probabilistic Graphical Models with Python” is the 3rd book I have reviewed from PACKT publishing. It has just been released on this June. Compared to the classic book of PGM – “PGM: Principles and Techniques” by Dr. Koller, this … Continue reading
Prolog is a straight-forward way to implement simple logic rules and do the query of the system. GProlog(gprolog) is the GNU version of Prolog implementation. To leverage the power of gprolog into our system code (C/C++), there are usually 2 … Continue reading
pyCluster is a Python implementation for clustering algorithms, including PAM and CLARA, which are widely used in Data Mining. To better the performance of PAM, parallel PAM is designed and implemented using Parallel Python. The experiment shows that parallel PAM, … Continue reading
