Understanding Arguably the Greatest Breakthrough in Artificial Intelligence of the Past Decade.

On November 30, 2020, DeepMind Technologies, a British AI company that was acquired by Alphabet in 2014, completely reshaped the field of molecular biology, bioengineering, and the life sciences via their breakthrough in the protein folding problem. This is a truly disruptive technology that has the potential to tackle some of the biggest obstacles humanity faces. Let’s break it down.

Quantum computing is one of the most exciting emerging technologies, especially with Google’s Sycamore quantum processor demonstrating supremacy in October of 2019. Quantum computing marks a paradigm shift in computing, having the potential to overhaul digital security and fuel scientific breakthroughs. But, what exactly is quantum computing?


An introduction to integral calculus with a focus on the core concepts and the beautiful intuition that lies behind the algebra.

Integral calculus and differential calculus are two sides of the same coin. Integration, however, can seem more complicated than differentiation because it involves the introduction of foreign notation and abstract ideas. However, the ideas themselves are beautifully intuitive and allow for the translation of complex ideas to simple algebraic manipulations. This article seeks to provide an intuitive view of integral calculus, showing how the math logically flows from the ideas and detailing the uses of integration.

Calculus is arguably the most influential mathematical discovery in history, finding uses in physics, economics, engineering, biology, and so much more. Calculus has two branches: Differential calculus; Integral calculus. The former grapples with the rate of change at an instant; the latter with the area between a function and the x-axis.

An individual has been described by a friend as follows: “Steve is very shy and withdrawn, invariably helpful but with very little interest in people or in the world of reality. A meek and tidy soul, he has a need for order and structure, and a passion for detail.” Is Steve more likely to be a librarian or a farmer?

Machine learning has revolutionized our world, showcasing its application in a myriad of fields. Astutely put, it is the science of getting a computer to complete a specified task or achieve a certain goal without being explicitly programmed. This paradigm has shifted our world, revolutionizing how we view problems and design solutions. The focus of this article is linear regression, more specifically, univariate linear regression. The concepts used in linear regression capture the heart of machine learning and is an algorithm that can be understood and implemented with ease.

Data is the pathway upon which the future is being built. It is a language spoken everywhere, and being able to translate and transform data is becoming an increasingly pivotal skill. The power of data has grown immensely, and algorithms are now a companies strongest asset. In order to take advantage of this data, we must learn how to harness and translate it.
