Building the Right Environment to Support AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning

A sample:

switch (day) {
    case MONDAY, FRIDAY, TUESDAY, SUNDAY - System.out.println(...);
    case THURSDAY, SATURDAY              - System.out.println(...);
    case WEDNESDAY                       - System.out.println(...);
