Beat the Rush Hour Traffic with Machine Learning using Tensorflow

By Shyam Purkayastha | Machine Learning

TensorFlow is one of Google’s flagship machine learning toolkits. Originally developed by researchers and engineers working on the Google Brain Team within Google’s Machine Intelligence research organization, Tensorflow found adoption in conducting machine learning and deep neural networks research. Subsequently, it was open sourced and is now available as a general purpose ML toolkit for a wide variety of applications. In this blog post, we will show you how to use the kNN routines of Tensorflow to solve a fundamental problem of city commuters, the traffic jams.

Build a real-time recommendation engine with IBM Bluemix and PubNub – Part 2

By Shyam Purkayastha | Machine Learning

This post is the follow up to my previous post in which I presented a real-time recommendation engine project around predicting duration of travel. In that post, I explored the factors affecting travel duration and looked at how, with the help of historical data, you can build an algorithm for predicting travel duration for a given route. Now, I will conclude the project by building an application that can help users plan a trip by providing real-time travel recommendations based on current traffic and weather conditions.

In this two-part blog series, I am going to show you how to build a real-time recommendation engine for advising on travel decisions. Travel time or duration is something that is always subject to a lot of speculation. Based on your travel experience along a particular route, you always bet on your intuition to decide when to start your journey. But if you are planning to travel for an all-important meeting to close a deal, a job interview that you have to crack at any cost, or a public event that you have to witness from the very beginning, then you better be prepared and alert, but how?
