Mobile Testing, Semantic Segmentation, Salary Gossip, and Word Analogies

  1. OWASP Mobile Testing Guide — a work in progress, but useful.
  2. Semantic Segmentation Using Deep Learning — review of the techniques that help you categorize pixels in an image by which object in the image they belong to.

As a Kiwi, I approve of Do not go to Singapore, Germany, or U.K. Go to Canada, Australia, France, New Zealand, or South Africa instead.
  4. Word Vectors and SAT Analogies — clever approach using the SAT analogy questions to test how well the word vector technique (“king – man + woman = queen”) holds up to relatively real-life situations. He got 49% accuracy but notes: These methods are not the best-performing non-human technique for these SAT analogy questions. Littman and Turney report several. Latent Relational Analysis comes in at 56% accuracy, against the average U.S. college applicant at 57%.
