Re: Docker/Containers

Thanks rrtucci,.  Our goal is to horizontally scale some of our functions so as far as actually stat libraries and functions we're ok.  Bayesforge appears free on the AWS marketplace so you pay for just the EC2 instance.  Been experimenting..... using containers and an orchestrator (kubernetes) is ...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

Hi Cuchulainn, vrolijk kerstfeest ("Merry Christmas" in Dutch, according to Google :) ) I am well aware of Q#. A ludicrous and totally opaque language, it is as popular as the Zune and doomed like the Windows browser and smart phone. It's a Rube Goldberg language that looks nothing like what all the...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

Lot's of great stuff in R. Bayesforge favors AI done with Bayesian Networks so it contains the program  bnlearn by Marco Scutari, which is written mostly in C, but it is called from an R wrapper. Bayesforge allows you to open notebooks in Python 3, R and Octave. It contains Anaconda for Python , but...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

You are an OO programmer. The move these days is to stateless functional programming. Much easier for parallel programming. IMO Python will probably teach you to become a 'hobby programmer' (nothing wrong with that of course, but it is a long way from the airs and graces of those Fortran types). Wh...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

I mentioned previously some things that I like about  Python.   But there are somethings about it that I dislike too. My Python coding style would  be considered sacrilegous by many Python zealots. I intentionally imitate a Java style in my code: I put only one class per file, and I try to use no gl...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

Is there a reason for using Python? is it just a front-end to TensorFlow et al or does your s/w do heavy lifting as well? Why no C++? Bayesforge supports 3 languages:  Python, R and Octave(a Matlab clone). You can open Jupyter notebooks in all 3. You can even open a BASH shell jupyter notebook. I n...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

" do you provide complimentary Quantum computers and Q compilers?" We don't build any quantum computers ( hardware). But Bayesforge is jupyter notebook centric. It uses Jupyter notebooks as an interface to the cloud. From a Jupyter notebook, you can connect seamlessly with the Dwave,  IBM, Rigetti a...

" On a follow-on remark, it is not clear to me what the  problem  you are trying to solve, promote, sell.. " I guess my original and primary goal was to get you interested in BayesForge.

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

"  No one uses quaternions  AFAIK, except maybe for graphics." No! See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pauli_matrices T he quaternions (1, i, j, k) can be represented by the matrices ( 1, i*sigx, i*sigy, i*sigz), where sigx, sigy, sigz are the 3  Pauli matrices. Pauli matrices arise extremely frequent...

" Is it the same as in Markov Chains? http://bidabad.com/doc/complex-prob.pdf " Both a classical and a quantum Markov chain are modeled by the bayesian network  x(t)->x(t+1) for t=0, 1, 2, ..., except in the classical case node x(t+1) for t>=0 represents a probability P[x(t+1) | x(t)]  satisfying  s...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

@ katastrofa These are very physiky questions and I'm just a very poor businessman now. The viability of Bayesforge does not depend on my ramblings about Bayesian networks.  But let me give some brief answers " how do you model causality? " I like to define Judea Pearl's "do" operations using entrop...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

@katastrofa, Oh, one more thing ( :)  Steve Jobs's spirit must have reminded me) If you replace the probabilities of classical Neural Nets by complex numbers, you get quantum neural nets QNN, which can be run on quantum computers. That is the goal of many people, including myself with my software h...

Re: Quantum Neural Networks, Tensorflow, Quantum Computer Programming on Amazon Cloud

What's the motivation for making the conditional probabilities in the nodes of Bayesian networks complex? What's the idea behind it and what advantages does it give you? (One could put there quaternions or any vectors, but what for?) The motivation is Quantum Mechanics itself. In classical probabil...
