Do you make BI reports for a living? Here are three lessons you can learn from a car’s dashboard.

The automobile is an extremely complex machine with lots of moving parts. You should look into the OBD (on-board diagnostics) toolkit that a maintenance guy brings along. The amount of data a car generates is insane.

But the user-facing dashboard inside the car?

Only what’s relevant is highlighted. There’s immediate and instant value the user (driver) gets from the dashboard at any point in time.

When you start the engine, you get to see DTE: Distance-to-Empty. …

It is quite possible to learn, follow and contribute to state-of-art work in deep learning in about 6 months’ time. This article details out the steps to achieve that.


- You are willing to spend 10–20 hours per week for the next 6 months
- You have some programming skills. You should be comfortable to pick up Python along the way. And cloud. (No background in Python and cloud assumed).
- Some math education in the past (algebra, geometry etc).
- Access to internet and computer.

Step 1

We learn driving a car — by driving. Not by learning…

This article lists some of the sources from where I get my daily dose of news and articles related to data science:

Apart from these, I get a curated newsletter from Medium: Medium Daily Digest. This is tech news in general — may or…

Can you imagine how terrible it is when the browser takes up more memory than the OS itself?!

Early this year, I consciously started using Firefox. No longer the memory hog. But alas, Firefox crashed every now and then. Ok, ok — Chrome…

Found this interesting article. The authors have been creating a module that detect maneuvers of vehicles using accelerometer and gyroscope. And to detect that, they have used ANN.

How can this be extended for India?
