Priority Queue

Time flies when you are having fun; at least that is how the saying goes. Today is Saturday and I am on my second and last block of the day. After breakfast I prepared the pizza dough and put it in a bowl covered with plastic film for it to rise. During the break between blocks my wife and I checked the dough. It is touching the plastic.

For lunch we are going to make and bake a few small and thin pizzas. We are going to mix and match toppings and are expecting to have a few leftover pizzas. Tomorrow we are going to make “baba” (an Italian yeast cake). Will have a few and the rest with the pizzas will be delivered to my oldest son. Continue reading “Priority Queue”

If urgent I will take a look and then address it on the next day. This is because at 05:00 PM CST I am fried. Since I wake up at 05:00 AM CDT, which is considerably early on the west coast (03:00 AM PST), I have plenty of time (about 5 hours) to get things done before people starts arriving around 09:00 AM PST.

http://(https://hackernoon.com/tensorflow-is-dead-long-live-tensorflow-49d3e975cf04This morning I read the post on Medium named “TensorFlow is dead, long live TensorFlow!” by Cassie Kozyrkov who is a Chief Decision Intelligence Engineer at Google. After lunch will spend some time watching the videos embedded in the post and over the weekend will see if I can take TensorFlow 2.o on a Linux machine for a spin. I have a version of TensorFlow 1.0 installed on a Windows machine. Followed some tutorials but as Cassie puts  it so expressively, it was complicated to say the least.
