Look at you, holding that mobile phone device or staring at the screen of a computer or a laptop – not even realizing what that piece of hardware signifies. Who would’ve thought over 8 decades the room-sized military instruments will shrink into your hands equipping you with all those features without which you can’t even think of having a life. Yes exactly, who would’ve thought – a bunch of nerds who were just there to implement their knowledge for the military to simplify invasion during World War-II, never thought of revolutionizing the consumer electronics industry.

NEURALINK has to do some thing with brain and neurons. But for a brief
here is what neuralink is all about. Elon Musk wants to control machines with just the power of thought. To that end, in July 2019 Musk and
his team revealed that they had developed ultrafine
threads that can be woven into your brain to
listen in on your neurons. The company has also built a robot that can perform the delicate surgery,
under the supervision of a neurosurgeon. When the company was first launched in 2016, Musk said he wanted to help humans compete in a world
where artificial intelligence had surpassed them – to give us more ‘bandwidth’. But with this new
announcement the researchers have turned their attention to helping those with brain-related disorders.
How artificial intelligence is transforming the world? Artificial intelligence (AI) is the technology used for equipping computer systems with the ability to make decisions like humans.The aim is to mimic human intelligence for performing complex tasks such as speech recognition, pattern recognition, weather forecast and much more. Despite its widespread lack of familiarity, AI is a technology that is transforming every walk of life. It is a wide-ranging tool that enables people to rethink how we integrate information, analyze data, and use the resulting insights to improve decision-making.It helps in automating tasks such as traffic, scheduling trains, making business predictions and designing driverless cars!AI has received increased attention in recent years. Innovation, made possible through the Internet, has brought AI closer to our everyday lives.read more
Kubernetes, or k8s (k, 8 characters, s...get it?), or kube if you're into brevity, is an open source platform that automates Linux container operations. It eliminates many of the manual processes involved in deploying and scaling containerized applications. In other words, you can cluster together groups of hosts running Linux containers, and Kubernetes helps you easily and efficiently manage those clusters. Kubernetes clusters can span hosts across public, private, or hybrid clouds.read more
Quantum computers perform calculations based on the probability of an object's state before it is measured ‐ instead of just 1s or 0s &hypen; which means they have the potential to process exponentially more data compared to classical computers. Quantum computers use qubits instead of traditional bits (binary digits).Qubits are different from traditional bits because until they are read out (meaning measured),they can exist in an indeterminate state where we can't tell whether they'll be measured as a 0 or a 1. That's because of a unique property called superposition. Superposition makes qubits interesting, but their real superpower is entanglement. Entangled qubits can interact instantly. To make functional qubits, quantum computers have to be cooled to near absolute zero. Even when supercooled, qubits don't maintain their entangled state (coherence) for very long.read more
APIs are less like USB ports or fire hoses than they are as a person at a
help desk in a foreign country. An API will not give you all of a program's information or code
(like a fire hose), because what would stop you from replicating the entire code base? Instead, an
API provides you with data its programmers have made available to outside users. Even so, you have
to know the language and ask the right questions to do anything with this data.
API stands for an application programming interface. The most important part of this name is interface, because an API mainly talks to a program for you. You still need to know the language to communicate with the program, but without an API, you won't get far. When programmers decide to make some of their data available to the public, they expose endpoints meaning they publish a portion of the language they've used to build their program.
Driven by computer vision and deep learning techniques, a new wave of imaging attacks has recently emerged, which allows anyone to create highly realistic "fake" videos easily. These false videos are known as Deep Fakes. While highly entertaining at times, DeepFakes can be used to perturb society, and some would argue that the pre-shock has already begun. A rogue DeepFake, which goes viral, can spread misinformation across the internet like wildfire.read more
Open-source software (OSS) dictates that the source code of an open-source
project is publicly accessible, and may be redistributed and modified by a community of developers.
Open source projects embrace strong values of community, collaboration, and transparency, for the mutual benefit of the platform and its users. This commitment to community pushes developers to constantly contribute new features and to ensure old ones perform properly. As a result, popular OSS projects are often on the cutting edge of technology.
“There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! Wow is
the one to aim for.” -Milton Glaser.
Read this short, to the point article as it guides you through how you should approach towards web development.So you are a beginner having no knowledge about this field.
No Problem. This article will remove all your doubts regarding how you should start web development. It is written in an easily understandable language and practical steps which can help you start with web development.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation works to put the power of digital
making into the hands of people all over the world and aims to promote the teaching of basic computer
science in schools and developing countries. So people are capable of understanding and shaping
increasingly digital world, and able to solve the problems that matter to them.
To fulfill this foundation developed a low-cost, high-performance, a small single board computer stamped with chips and input/output (I/O) connectors, named “RASPBERRY PI” that people can use to learn, solve problems and have fun.
You must have thought about your automatic wash machine as to how it took inputs by just making you press a few buttons, and then perform the tasks accordingly. We have seen something like this in our computers. So then deriving an analogy we can say that a small computer is embedded into the wash machine which is in fact true, we do use a small computer called as microcontroller.Microcontrollers are basically small computers which include a processor core, memory, and programmable input/output.
