Praecipio Labs: Control Systems with Neural Networks

By Praecipio Consulting on Aug 15, 2018 11:00:00 AM

What, why?

My favorite class in college was Neural networks for non-linear control systems which was way out of my league but I wanted it, so I powered through. I majored in mechanical engineering and studied computer science and electrical engineering because of a passion for robotics. This class blew my mind. Life being what it is, I went off to build a career which took me away from machine learning until recently. Things have come a long way in the intervening years and I wanted to recreate the approach we used in this class.

The animations that we created were what most captured my imagination because they would show the controller learning and improving.

The Intranet is Dead!

By Praecipio Consulting on Jul 27, 2018 11:00:00 AM

Over the past few years, we have worked with a variety of organizations to help design and build intranets. The majority of these organizations were moving away from sites that were built on Microsoft’s SharePoint stack, and were looking for custom designs to better meet business needs. From creating intranets from scratch to simply offering a new look and feel, we have seen it all, and we know what works well and what doesn't. And we have noticed commonalities between organizations looking for an intranet solution. Organizations often share the same goals and challenges, and all can agree that the idea of building an intranet can seem daunting.

Mitigate Risk with Secure Content for Confluence

By Praecipio Consulting on Jun 26, 2018 11:00:00 AM

Sensitive information and the security of that information is becoming increasingly critical for organizations across the globe. GDPR, PHI, HIPAA, PCI, and other sensitive information legislation has had a profound effect on what information can be stored where and who can access this information. At the same time, the need for centralization and collaboration for disparate teams has also increased.

Secure Content for Confluence Server and Data Center helps users store and manage sensitive information while balancing Confluence's powerful content collaboration.
