    "At the moment, progressive apps will only work on Android."

    Who is to say that iOS will expose all the APIs and permissions to progressive web apps, that it does for native apps? Even on Android, it requires Chrome. Unfortunately, this takes away half of the advantage of web apps.

    However, if you only want to target Android and Web, this may be potentially useful.

    Insights can be drawn only from data and today, most of our data is split between many apps/services which don't talk to each other. Even though apps like Balanced or Optimized exist, I find them too limiting.

    Is there anyone here who's working on things like these?

    AWS now offers Linux-based GPU instances: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/using_cluster_computing.html

    In my experience, training DNNs on GPUs is as much as 30x faster than on CPUs.

    Probabilistic models are used a lot in practice: medical diagnostics for example. For algorithmic trading though, I don't see any benefit in using PGMs over ML techniques. Have seen decent results with SVMs, Random Forest etc.

    This will be disastrous. The proposal asks not only for software patents, but on business methods as well.

    I agree with FSMI's position: http://fsmi.in/content/patent-office-guidelines-not-tune-patents-act
