Analyzing a parodic trailer (NSFW) with Google Cloud Video Intelligence

Google has recently announced its new service called “Google Cloud Video Intelligence”. The purpose of this service is to offer tagging and annotations of digital videos. I will try this service on a trailer of a French parody. This movie is made of several scenes taken from erotic movies of the seventies. Why this parody? because it is fun because it is composed of a lot of different scenes because it is short (so it won’t cost me a lot) because, as it is related to erotic of the seventies, I am curious about the result!

Chrome, the eye of the cloud - Computer vision with deep learning and only 2Gb of RAM

TL;DR: Thank you for passing by. This article is, as usual, geek oriented. However, if you are not a geek, and/or you are in a hurry, you can jump to the conclusion: Any real application? During the month of may, I have had the chance to attend to the Google Next event in London and the dotAI in Paris. In both conferences I learned a lot about machine learning.

I have tried Extreme Programming within a sprint and I think it is an excellent agile method for the Ops!

Part I: Agility 2003 I have discovered the notion of extreme programming more than 15 years ago. My job was to integrate and to develop pieces of code in Java for the IBM Websphere Business Integration server. We were a small team with light programming skills. A part of our job was to operate the software, the other part was to develop. It was in 2003. We were trying hard to stick to the specific framework we developed.

From GraphQL to a table view with React and Apollo

In the last post I have played with GraphQL. The next step is to actually query the data and display it. In this post I will use react (from Facebook) and the Apollo GraphQL client. Tooling React I won’t give in here an introduction of the language because you may find on the web thousands of very good tutorials and advocacy articles. Anyway I will explain briefly why I have chosen React.

Playing with Facebook's GraphQL (applied to AWS products and offers management)

About GraphQL GraphQL has been invented by Facebook for the purpose of refactoring their mobile application. Facebook had reached the limits of the standard REST API mainly because: Getting that much information was requiring a huge amount of API endpoints The versioning of the API was counter-productive regarding Facebook’s frequents deployements. But graphql is not only a query language related to Facebook. GraphQL is not only applicable to social data.
