When Narendra Modi took notes: How the owners of India’s language newspapers “advised” the PM six hours before he announced a 21-day shutdown. (Or so it seems.)

Narendra Modi‘s relationship with the news media since becoming prime minister in 2014 has been built on conspicuous contempt and confrontation, but behind the scenes, chummy co-option and cultivation has been a constant endeavour. Modi likes the world to believe he is not bothered with what the “news traders” of the mainstream media say, when he can directly “speak” to the people through social and public media: so no media adviser; no journalists on board his aircraft; no press conferences; no...

You Ask, I Answer: Can AI Solve Word Problems?

Ravi asks, “Can AI solve word problems?” It depends on how we define word problems. Can AI techniques process language and deliver useful outcomes using natural language processing? Absolutely. Techniques like sentiment analysis and machine translation are robust and available in-market now. Can they truly understand our speech? Not yet. NLP is far from being […] The post You Ask, I Answer: Can AI Solve Word Problems? appeared first on Christopher S. Penn - Marketing Data Science Keynote Speaker...

Previously in this space: 1. I talked about a dangerously irresponsible workplace and my escape from it to a life of music, from Boston to Arkansas to Austin. 2. I talked about Vermont College of Fine Arts, a school that profoundly shaped who I am in ways that I can barely begin to describe. (I tried valiantly to do so, regardless.) 3. I talked about the burgeoning scene surrounding video game music (as well as covers and arrangements thereof) and the way that I fell into that world. And now I’m...

IoT: Is it Making Remote Work a Real Option for More Companies?

By Ravi Narayan The Internet of Things (a.k.a. IoT, or Wi-Fi-connected technology) is enabling the creation of smart home offices across the world. Increasingly, employees are able to organize and manage a meeting at the head office even while working from a coffee shop across the world. Research by Cisco estimates that the global quantum of IoT-based devices will reach a staggering 50 billion by the year 2020.

Forget vinyl: here’s a DJ rig with two Amiga 1200 PCs

Computers will never die. Now they’re even old enough to be retro. So watch a DJ rig that combines two Commodore Amigas for MOD DJing, thanks to recent software. “The kids are coming up from behind. I’m losing my edge. I hear that you and your band have sold your turntables and bought Amigas.” The beauty of this approach is, those Amigas play MOD files – tracker-based music sequences with elaborate, hyperactive sounds from the golden age of video game composition and chip music. And just as...

Stream Online the Complete “Lost” John Coltrane Album, Both Directions at Once

Expectations ran high when it was announced last month that a lost (!) John Coltrane album, Both Directions at Once, had been discovered by the family of his ex-wife Naima, and would finally be released for fans to hear. Would it prove worthy of Sonny Rollin’s comparison to “finding a new room in the Great Pyramid”? Such discoveries can lead to dead ends and disappointments as often as to revelations. In this case, the album yields neither, which is not to say it isn’t, as Chris Morris w...

Hear the First Track From John Coltrane’s Lost Album: The Newly-Discovered 1963 Collection Will Get Officially Released Later This Month

Sainthood and incalculable influence aside, John Coltrane didn’t always break new ground in the studio. “If you heard the John Coltrane Quartet live in the early-to-mid 1960s,” writes Giovanni Russonello at The New York Times—referring to the classic lineup of bassist Jimmy Garrison, drummer Elvin Jones, and pianist McCoy Tyner—you heard “a ground-shaking band, an almost physical being, bearing a promise that seemed to reach far beyond music.” Prior to 1965’s supernatural A Love Supreme,...

‘iZombie’ Season 4 Trailer Reveals Ravi’s Fate, Teases New Seattle

It looks like Ravi is now a member of the undead. In the recently released trailer for the upcoming Season 4 of “iZombie,” Ravi (Rahul Kohli) is seen satisfying his newfound craving for brains by eating one in the morgue. A close look at Ravi’s hair at the end of the promo clip also reveals that he’s now rocking some locks of white hair. The medical examiner is also seen unusually walking around his apartment naked — a habit that he may have acquired from the first brain he consumed.
