Books, Blogs and Videos—curated resource list on AI, ML and DL


by Imran Haider

There is no shortage of online resources if you want to learn more about AI, Machine Learning etc. The world is buzzing with ever new pieces of information on these emerging technologies. Which at times can be overwhelming. Partly because of this reason we started Modev blog. The aim is to create content that explains these complex and often times confusing topics in a way everyone can understand. Especially the developer community because their time is much better spent on building things. Rather than trying to make sense of industry trends.

Machinery.AI Launches in Seattle and DC


by Pete Erickson

After the successful launch of our Voicehacks community in the summer of 2017, we knew it was time to accelerate our plans for Machinery.AI. The Voicehacks tour allowed us to visit ten cities and meet more than 1500 developers and the hunger for all things A.I. was notable. It felt like the early days of iOS and Android with developers and other professionals clamoring for knowledge. The term "AI is the new UI" rings so true. Instead of tap, pinch, swipe, it's now access (data), process, present.

State of Voice Platforms


by Imran Haider

Use of the word “platform” in the title is rather cautious. Because there is only one true platform in Voice and that's Amazon Alexa. While Google and Apple are in the game, you can't call their offerings platforms as yet. They have products and technologies in place but there ain't much for developers to do. Let's roll back a little bit and take a holistic view at the state of the industry. VoiceLabs recently released their 2017 VoiceReport. The report is worth a read in entirety. The picture below, however, is particularly important in understanding the different parts of a Voice stack.


What is Modev Exo Summit and why you should attend it?


by Imran Haider

Pick any large scale software product and you will find plenty of content on the tech side of it. But almost none on how people working on it actually work. For example, how they handle Pager or Crisis Management? This knowledge remains in the boardrooms and never gets out. While there are instances where it's hard to share that knowledge because of confidentiality. But more often than not the lessons learned are generic and shareable.
