Machine Learning Meetup KANSAI #7

As usual, HACARUS participated in the lastest Machine Learning Meetup Kansai, held on November 27th at LINE's Kyoto Offices. Unlike previous sessions, this last meetup of the year was held as a panel session including engineers from LINE, Rist, Hatena, HACARUS and moderated by LiveSense. In this post, Tanaka, and Sumie, two interns at our Kyoto headquarters that attended share their impressions. During the Panel discussion topics such as, "What algorithm should be selected for tasks with low certainty?" "Does…

HACARUS Gives Lecture at Shiga University Graduate School of Data Science

On December 19, 2019, Takashi Someda, HACARUS’ Chief Technical Officer, Naoki Kitora, its Chief Data Scientist and Ryuji Masui, Data Scientist gave a lecture at Shiga University, to the Graduate School of Data Science, introducing real world examples of utilizing machine learning for improving visual inspection at manufacturing sites. The Graduate School of Data Science at Shiga University, which opened in April of this year, has a mixed student body, consisting of professionals, in addition to those who have advanced…

HACARUS Kaggle Challenge #1

Hello, I'm Ippei Usami, a Data Scientist at Hacarus. In August of this year, Hacarus implemented the Internal Kaggle Challenge. To clarify, Kaggle is a Google-owned online platform that allows for the data scientists community to challenge themselves through competition, and share insights with the rest to further increased know-how. When we talk about the Internal Kaggle Challenge, we're talking about our an internal company-wide competition aimed to help our data scientists cultivate skills and increase creativity. Well, we've now finished…

Hacarus @ PyCon Taiwan 2019

This year Hacarus sponsored PYCON Taiwan as part of our ongoing engagement with with PYCON community, below follows a conference report written by Ninz Eclarin, one of our Engineers at the Manila Development Center.   I've been to some PyCon events in Asia before, but PyCon Taiwan strikes some awesome distinction. I mean, who can say no to a great selection of food and drinks provided at the venue? Unlimited MilkTea for the win! But aside from the awesome food, PyCon…

Part 3 of Sparse Modeling for IT Engineers on CodeZine

The third installment of our series on Sparse Modeling for IT engineers came out today in CodeZine. This time, it is written by Ippei Usami of Hacarus Data Science Team - Read the full story in the link below (only Japanese)   スパースモデリングのモデルを評価する~LASSO推定値の評価方法  

Participating in Amazon’s Workshop: Introduction to Amazon EC2 F1 Instances

Hey there! I’m Maeda, one of Hacarus’s FPGA interns. Just like the title says, I joined the course called Amazon EC2 F1 Instance.  In this report, I’ll explain what I learned point-by-point. So, what's an F1 Instance?  The F1 Instance is a compute instance with Field Programmable Gate Arrays, abbreviated as FPGA. The F1 instance (Formula 1, includes Xilinx Virtex UltraScale+ VU9P) is an EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) equipped with FPGA.  In FPGA, users can program the logic functions that…

Sparse Modeling with the Jetson Nano Developer Kit

Hello! My name is Kishimoto. I’m an engineer intern at Hacarus. I’m going to be checking out NVIDIA’s high power board computer, the Jetson Nano, a highly reviewed Edge AI board and recent topic in the tech world. The Jetson Nano is a high-performance edge device with 4 Core Arm CPU (Central Processing Unit) and 128 CUDA Core. Using the CUDA Core, I'm going to be trying the Lasso Regression technique. 1. Jetson Nano’s Development Environment Developed by NVIDIA, Jetson…

HACARUS launches Kaggle Challenge program!

We are excited to announce that we have started a self-training program for our engineers called "HACARUS Internal Kaggle Challenge" In this program,  every engineer is allowed to spend up to 20% of working hours for a Kaggle competition and this is, so to say, Hacarus version of 20% rule. Needless to say, Kaggle is the world's largest machine learning competition platform and we can find many competitions related to our focused business areas like medical and industrial fields. Participation…
