Meet Brey Caraway – Hacarus Summer Intern from the U.S. 2019

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? Of course! My name is Brey Caraway and I am a senior Texas A&M engineering student. My major of study is in the emerging field of Mechatronics. Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering that combines and applies the elements of mechanical, electronic and control systems. I will graduate in December of 2020 and I’m here to do an internship with Hacarus this summer. So, what made you decide to apply…

Machine Learning Meetup KANSAI # 5 Report

Hi! I'm Nozaki, a Data Scientist intern here at Hacarus. I had the pleasure of attending the latest "Machine Learning Meetup KANSAI" on June 17, 2019 and would like to report on the meeting. The “Machine Learning Meetup KANSAI” is a reoccurring event in Kansai where students and professionals meet to share ideas and information with each other on the topic of Machine Learning. This past week’s meetup, the fifth in order, was held at Hatena’s awesome Kyoto offices. The…

Sparse Modeling Using HiFive Unleashed (RISC-V)

Greetings, world! My name is Kawano - I'm a data scientist intern here at Hacarus who joined last year November. I'm a master's student who typically spends time doing research by analyzing insect behavior (for the record, I'm an information science major!). As an intern at Hacarus, I work on FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) projects. Anywho, let's get straight to it- have you ever heard of the RISC-V? I'll be putting in hardware called the Debian into a RISC-V…

Sparse Modeling with SPRESENSE

Hello, I’m Kishimoto! I’m an Edge Engineer intern who has been working at Hacarus for quite some time now. Last year, Sony released an Arduino IDE supported, high-performance board computer called, SPRESENSE, which I’ll be talking about today! SPRESENSE is an Arduino-compatible edge device loaded with a high-performance CPU. Using the SPRESENSE, I wanted to test its capabilities for edge machine learning, which is often difficult to achieve due to the low computing power of edge devices. In recent years, the…

A Casual Morning for Tea Ceremony with Hacarus!

Experiencing Tea Ceremony in Kyoto at Hacarus In the morning, Hacarus visited Jinmatsuan, a place where you can personally experience a bit of Japanese culture through their workshops and events. I'm going to explain a bit about the history, process, and significance in the way of tea ceremony with some pictures we took during the ritual! What is tea ceremony, what makes it special and from where does it originate? In its most simplest sense, tea ceremony (sado) or the…

Sparse Modeling For IT Engineers

Using Sparse Modeling in AI: A Human Centric, Explainable Approach

This post introduces a technique called "Sparse Modeling" that can produce good analysis results, even if the amount of data is small. The article was written for engineers who want to start on machine learning and for those who have already experience with deep learning. Note: The original version of this article was published in Japanese on Codezine.jp: 機械学習プロジェクトにおける課題と、スパースモデリングに期待が高まる背景 Introduction The field of machine learning and particularly deep learning, based on data acquisition and collection of information through the cloud…

My PyCon Indonesia Experience

Recently, I've become active in attending and speaking at PyCon events. This time, I've attended PyCon Indonesia.   The event was held at Kalbis Institute last November 3-4 2018 and it is the second PyCon event in Indonesia since last year. I find it really amazing how they were able to grow the community in such a short amount of time. The topics discussed spanned across multiple topics about Python. The speakers who shared their experiences are a mix of…
