Tools to Working from home in Sri Lanka.

image

Working from home is getting more important in these days due to lockdowns in many countries. Following free and paid tools helps you to manage your work efficiently at home.

Skype

image

We all know Skype for conference calls, instant messaging with clients or chat rooms. But if you haven’t been using it for business, you may have missed out on some new functionalities. Record Skype calls to capture key decisions, and use live subtitles to read the words spoken. Easily share presentations, images, or anything on your screen during a call with integrated screen sharing. Access one skype account across multiple devices—even Alexa!

Slack

Slack is the communication tool that brings remote teams together. The platform organizes conversations into channels, which team members can join and leave, as needed, so nobody receives messages or notifications irrelevant to them. Conversations can also be had in threads, which keep messages outside of the main channel so chats don’t get in the way of main topics and projects.

Key features

• Instant messaging: Live communication between every team member for seamless collaboration.

• Statuses: Users can set availability statuses to focus on individual tasks as needed.

• File sharing: Drag-and-drop file sharing for PDFs, images, videos and other common files types.

• Voice & video calls: Voice and video calls directly from within Slack.

• Screen sharing: Allows team members to show their work to others in real-time for stronger collaboration.

Zoom is a suite of video conferencing and communication tools designed for remote teams, virtual businesses conferences, webinars and other corporate purposes. We use Zoom for our virtual meetings, which we can use to run video and voice calls, but it’s capable of much more than this.

Key features

· Video meetings: Remote teams can run video meetings and one-to-one video calls.

· Voice calls: You can also run group or one-to-one voice calls when face-to-face meetings aren’t necessary.

· Webinars: You can also use Zoom to host webinars.

· Messaging: Team members can send messages using Zoom.

· File sharing: Share files during and outside of video/voice chats for collaboration between members.

Applying Machine Learning for COVID-19 Dataset.

Kaggle recently released dataset for COVID-19.

Applying Machine Learning for COVID-19 Dataset.

Dataset Description

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the White House and a coalition of leading research groups have prepared the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19). CORD-19 is a resource of over 29,000 scholarly articles, including over 13,000 with full text, about COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, and related coronaviruses. This freely available dataset is provided to the global research community to apply recent advances in natural language processing and other AI techniques to generate new insights in support of the ongoing fight against this infectious disease. There is a growing urgency for these approaches because of the rapid acceleration in new coronavirus literature, making it difficult for the medical research community to keep up.

Applying Machine Learning for COVID-19 Dataset.

Call to Action

We are issuing a call to action to the world’s artificial intelligence experts to develop text and data mining tools that can help the medical community develop answers to high priority scientific questions. The CORD-19 dataset represents the most extensive machine-readable coronavirus literature collection available for data mining to date. This allows the worldwide AI research community the opportunity to apply text and data mining approaches to find answers to questions within, and connect insights across, this content in support of the ongoing COVID-19 response efforts worldwide. There is a growing urgency for these approaches because of the rapid increase in coronavirus literature, making it difficult for the medical community to keep up.

Most Common Words Experiment –

This experiment analyze common words used in the dataset using Text based ML Algorithms.
