Ask HN: How to incorporate machine learning into day job?


I work for a small regional shipping company, mostly building CRUD apps and doing EDI integrations. I'd like to find a practical side project using machine learning and/or data science that could add value at work, but for the life of me I can't come up with any problems that I couldn't solve with a relational database (postgres) and a data transformation step. I've spent some time learning pytorch, numpy, and pandas but I know that if I don't use it, especially at work, I'll just forget everything I've learned. My boss is a dev and is generally supportive of learning new things and finding ways to innovate independently, so if I can come up with a good idea I'm sure he'll let me pursue it in my spare time. Has anyone tried to do this before? Any suggestions would be great.

Openly sharing your work brings more attention to it, which is good, right? The answer, for me though, is often “it’s complicated.” This is what happened when I went to visit a giant tech company, in hopes for collaboration, but later found that they tried to patent some of my research instead!

On bullshit jobs


In another instance, a “subcontractor of a subcontractor of a subcontractor for the German military” describes driving for hours and filling out pages of paperwork simply to prevent a soldier from carrying his computer about 16 and a half feet down a hallway to his new office.

Yes, capitalism has brought us a lot of great new inventions, one can almost feel the freedom flushing through one’s veins. How awesome it is to live in the current age.
