My ISP is nice, but a bit slow and dense. It serves me with one single dynamic IPv4 address and doesn’t give a rat’s ass about IPv6 protocol. Their thinking is simple: if IPv4 was good-enough a decade ago (when we had 500 kbps links), why change it now, right? According to the technical support of my ISP behemoth, IPv6 is too new, not in demand and therefore not on their future roadmap at all.

IPv6 standard is not new (it was formalized in 1998) and it definitely is in demand — according to the current IPv4 exhaustion report. Out of five registrars that coordinate allocation of addresses globally, only AFRINIC has few old IPv4 addresses left — and they will deplete them all this year, turning on a black market of IPv4 address reselling.

I cannot put this more plainly: _**_YOU NEED YOUR HOME IPv6 ALLOCATION ASAP**.

Luckily we don’t need to wait for ISPs and their mercy to get IPv6 networks allocated. We can route IPv6 traffic from home devices through an IPv4 networking tunnel to a nearest IPv6 tunnel broker and enable IPv6 independently of ISPs. Think about it as a VPN tunnel with an explicit purpose to enable routing and flow of IPv6 traffic.

Note: when you choose a VPN provider (if you need one), make sure to select the one that offers both IPv4 and IPv6 routing through VPN. Once you start investigating, you’ll be surprised how few VPN providers actually do that… Before you ask, I use _[**_Perfect Privacy VPN**](https://www.perfect-privacy.com/en/), because reasons.

Neural network: what is a neural network?

Neural networks, as their name implies, are computer algorithms modeled after networks of neurons in the human brain. Learn more about neural networks from Algorithmia.

A Comparative Analysis of Recurrent Neural Networks

Recurrent neural networks, also known as RNNs, are a class of neural networks that allow previous outputs to be used as inputs while having hidden states.

Recurrent Neural Networks for Multilabel Text Classification Tasks

The purpose of this project is to build and evaluate Recurrent Neural Networks(RNNs) for sentence-level classification tasks. Let's understand about recurrent neural networks for multilabel text classification tasks.
