I began to wonder if there wasn’t a way to automatically identify when a social media post has guns or other weapons contained in them. This post will cover how to use a couple of techniques to send images to the Imagga API that will automatically tag pictures with keywords that it feels accurately describe some of the objects contained within the picture. As well, I will teach you how to use some slicing and dicing techniques in Python to help increase the accuracy of the tagging.

Robust web frameworks have begun supporting WebSockets out of the box.

I've tried not to be disingenuous with the comparison, and I'm only going to compare like with like, so I can show code from both frameworks and let you draw your own conclusions. We cover Models, URLS, Views, Templates.

The Singapore Smart Nation initiative is a government push to try and improve the efficiency of Singapore, as a country, using technology.
