Sure, 67% is no 100%. But if you take a look at the github code, you'll see that no optimization has been done besides what comes baked into the nolearn and decaf libraries - i.e. plenty of room for improvement. Read more

Yes, first set are democrats. And I'll agree with your comment - more than likely where a good portion of the 67% accuracy comes from. Thanks!

Depending on your phone's storage, you could download the mp4s directly onto your phone (do a 'save as' on the links in the video lecture on your class page from your PC, then transfer onto your phone). This is a big hassle though. If am flying or on the train outside of cell range, I'll just download on a laptop Read more

Same here! And for my Data Science class, I find it useful to listen to the lecture more than once, perfect tool for that.

Interesting resource. Nice to see a world-centric approach backed by such big names. Accreditation may not be as big an issue for countries that don't have easy access to top educational systems.

Yeah, its going to be very interesting. Due to the visibility of this ground-breaking program and the standing of Georgia Tech, I imagine it will be well received. And the fact that "...only those students granted admission to Georgia Tech will receive credit..." i.e. GPA and GRE requirements will be competitive.

Good stuff - thanks for sharing. Do you know if you can get time-based reminders echoed in google calendar?

I could do that for 100% personal stuff, but for things that I use both personally and professionally, like programming syntax, code snippets, etc, I need to be able to cute and paste, etc

I totally agree with you there. That's where tags in evernote come in handy. I haven't played around with bookmarks in word but that may work too. The essence of the article is about quick retrieval along with organizing subject matters. I try to keep my subject matter docs short, concise and logical, so if it doesn't Read more

Hi HellFrozeOver2, you bring up great questions. I use this mostly as a memory aid that is only used by me. Thus, a document is a subject, not an a specific book or author, and I will liberally mix sources (including my own thoughts) into that document. The key is that things need to be extremely well summarized and Read more

No tagging in an Evernote or Wordpress sense, just using the navigation pane as links to titles in the text. For me, the key has been to keep things as simple as possible, if it gets too onerous to build, I tend to lose interest. Didn't know about emacs org-mode, sounds pretty versatile, thanks for sharing.

I do use OneNote on occasions, especially for search and retrieval as it will search text on scans, images, etc, and for recording meetings. The audio recorder is awesome as it will tag the audio with the text you type, like an index of the sound track... later on, click on any of the text and it will playback what Read more

I love podcasts too. Most of the books on Audible are great. They use professionals to read, so usually they know how to intonate and how to add some liveliness to the text. Ironically, the few times it wasn't so good was when the original author did the reading. That can be a hit and miss, sure they wrote the Read more

Hi Whitson, who would I talk to about being added as an author on Hackerspace? I'd like to see a bit more activity (plus I have a few more articles in progress and another one ready to go) - not really interested in a personal blog as I already have one on WordPress. Thanks.
