Step 5: Will my tech stack scale? Choosing a tech stack is a commitment that’s not easily reversed, so concerns related to future circumstances like scalability and performance are common. However, trying to address these concerns at the MVP stage would be premature. Many performance issues are a product of application design, not technology choice. […]
4. Consider the landscape of tools in your industry One of the keys to a successful MVP is reducing time to market. Capitalizing on existing tools can dramatically reduce the scope of work and effort required to launch your product. When selecting a programming language and other back-end technologies, first identify the best open source […]

Isn’t it curious that two of the top conferences on artificial intelligence are organized by NVIDIA and Intel? What do chip companies have to teach us about algorithms? The answer is that nowadays, for machine learning (ML), and particularly deep learning (DL), it’s all about GPUs. In his most recent Forbes Technology Counsel post, SVSG CTO […]
Advances in Machine Learning (ML) and Deep Learning (DL) technologies and techniques put greater demand on data centers and ML-optimized compute resources and bring a new wave of disruption to cloud providers. This will impact Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and other cloud providers as demand for the SMACK stack (spark, mesos, akka, cassandra, kafka) replaces […]
