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

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

image

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.

Building RNN (Recurrent Neural Network) using TensorFlow

In this tutorial we will look into building RNN using Tenserflow.

We can use RNN for forecasting data where output can be next value or sequence of values.

Recurrent Neural Network code

The RNN trains its units by adjusting their weights following a slight modification of a feedback process known as backpropogation

We can use tenserflow to implement RNN. Following code we implement an RNN in to predict spam from texts
