Microsoft’s New AI Writes Code For People Who Don’t Know Coding

DeepCoder is an artificial intelligence system built by the researchers at Microsoft and the University of Cambridge. Based on a technique called program synthesis, DeepCoder can write working code after searching from a huge code database. It tries to make the best possible arrangement for the harvested code fragments and improves its efficiency over time. We’ve about the very basic artificial intelligence ...

Nebula as a Storage Platform to Build Airbnb’s Search Backends – Airbnb Engineering & Data Science – Medium

Last year Airbnb grew to a point that a scalable and distributed storage system was required to store data for some applications. For example, personalization data for search grew larger than what a single machine can hold. While we could rebuild just the personalization service to scale up, we foresaw other services to have similar requirements and decided to build a common platform to simplify such tasks ...
