Expert Kx developer JP Armstrong recently added an interesting kdb+/q project to GitHub.

It is a small web application to control the lights in his apartment. It does this by wrapping Philips Hue’s comprehensive REST API into simple functions that turn on/off lights, change “scene”, and schedule light changes through URL GET calls. The project also comes with the ability to get today’s sunset time and schedule the lights to turn on 30 minutes in advance.

Check out JP’s project on GitHub.

Kx Insights: Machine learning subject matter experts in semiconductor manufacturing

9 Jul 2018 | , ,

Subject matter experts are needed for ML projects since generalist data scientists cannot be expected to be fully conversant with the context, details, and specifics of problems across all industries. The challenges are often domain-specific and require considerable industry background to fully contextualize and address. For that reason, successful projects are typically those that adopt a teamwork approach bringing together the strengths of data scientists and subject matter experts. Where data scientists bring generic analytics and coding capabilities, Subject matter experts provide specialized insights in three crucial areas: identifying the right problem, using the right data, and getting the right answers.
