EclipseCon 2019: deep learning & other cool stuff

Since 2008 I missed only one EclipseCon Europe, the annual Eclipse Conference held in Ludwigsburg, Germany. This year the program committee accepted a talk from us about deep learning in general and DL4J as an Eclipse Project. Having a talk accepted from the committee is always an honour and a pleasure, but this time it was particularly special for a couple of reasons: it was the only talk about deep learnig in the program and ... well, it was scheduled in the forum theatre, where keynotes, announcements, welcome and important talks and closing sessions are held. Therefore, when I entered [...]

Build your first neural network with Eclipse Deeplearning4j

In the previous article we had an introduction to deep learning and neural networks. Here we will explore how to design a network depending on the task we want to solve. There is indeed an incredibly high number of parameters and topology choices to deal with when working with neural networks: how many hidden layers should I set up? What activation function should they use? What are good values for the learning rate? Should I use a classical Multilayer Neural Network, a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), a Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) or one of the other architectures available? These questions are [...]

Linux as a Desktop

The Goal Since my first encounter with Linux, around 2000, I made several attempts to adopt it as a real and productive desktop environment for the enterprise. However, for a number of practical reasons, after a while (some days or weeks), I always resigned and got back to Windows. Every time there were problems here and there that accumulated one after another and made me think "why on the earth I keep on trying to switch to Linux when I just don't have all these problems with Windows?". The Problems Which problems? Well, sometimes problems with hardware management (wifi connection, [...]

Web development with Eclipse RAP

Introduction We've already wrote in the past about RAP framework (see article Single sourcing with Eclipse RAP). In the meantime however this framework has made big progress (the above article was referring to version 1.4, while now it is out with version 2.1) and many things changed. Also the name, RAP, does not mean Rich Ajax Platform anymore, but now stands for Remote Application Platform. In practice it is now a platform to develop modular applications for desktop, browser and mobile. In this article we will see how to prepare the needed environment for the creation of our first web [...]
