Data Serialization Formats to communicate between docker containers

1. Needs for better data serialization Now I’m building web applications that are running on Docker containers. Each containers need to interact with the others. Then, which data format is the best to communicate among them? Nowadays most of web APIs are using JSON with REST api under HTTP protocol. JSON and XML are readable for humans and it is big advantage of them. But when it comes to the data size, JSON and XML are not good. [Read More]

Try image completion model from SIGGRAPH and it was great

The paper about image inpainting was presented to SIGGRAPH, and I give it a try since the actual model was published. Paper: “Globally and Locally Consistent Image Completion” Here this is the original paper presented to SIGGRAPH. Globally and Locally Consistent Image Completion Take a look at the Github This github repository was created by the author of the paper. It seems to be published from around February 2018. Github - https://github.com/satoshiiizuka/siggraph2017_inpainting We can download the trained model from this github. [Read More]

Very Simple Blockchain Implementation in Ruby

1. Why I implemented it in Ruby I created simple version of blockchain in Ruby. This is because I read this article “Learn Blockchains by Building One” and I’m impressed with this. It creates simple blockchain in Python less than 200 lines of code. Then I thought why not in Ruby? For the engineers, it is easier to figure out something by creating simple one by coding, isn’t it? 2. Implement blockchain in Ruby Just implement it in Ruby one by one. [Read More]

Completed the Machine Learning course by Stanford University!

I could completed the Machine Learning course by Stanford University! Yay! I started in April, and I could finish it at the end of June. So It took about 3 months. (Please refer to the entry, which was written in the beginning => Started to study Coursera Machine Learning course by Stanford Univ. ) Cons Unfamiliar programming language “Octave”.
