HPCC Systems interns can choose whether to be office based or work remotely. In 2021, the platform team and all our interns worked remotely due to the impact of COVID-19 on office based working. HPCC Systems has been providing remote internships since it started, so this isn't new to us and our support system for remote working interns is tried and tested. Find out how the support we provide keeps students engaged and provides a firm foundation for completing a successful internship project.

HPCC Systems has a robust Academic Program that collaborates with colleges, universities, high schools and institutions of higher learning around the world. One such collaboration with the Rashtreeya Vidyalaya College of Engineering (RVCE) in Bengaluru, India, has resulted in a new publication: Hybrid Density-based Adaptive Clustering using  Gaussian Kernel and Grid Search, published by IEEE Xplore®

Log visualizations help identify, track and predict important events and trends on HPCC Systems clusters, by spotting interesting patterns and giving you visual clues which are easier to interpret than reading through the log file itself. Starting in HPCC Systems 8.0.0, a mechanism will be provided to deploy a lightweight Elastic Stack instance as a simple solution for the logs on-cloud processing challenges. In this blog, Rodrigo Pastrana walks through how to get started, view the logs, apply filter conditions and configure the Elastic Stack components.

There is a big difference between recognizing natural language and understanding it. Machine Learning has given the impression that it has or will solve natural language processing and that dictionaries, syntax, and all the traditional trappings of linguistics are simply not needed. This could not be further from the truth. The money lies in understanding and until now, understanding has been impossible to achieve.
