Computerphile explains PCA – Principle Component Analysis in an accessible way.
Computerphile asks “How do you represent a word in AI?”
Rob Miles reveals how words can be formed from multi-dimensional vectors – with some unexpected results.
Seytonic explores the various tools around security and pen testing.
Fascinating look at the practical aspects of info sec.
Seeker examines a leaked paper from Google claimed that a quantum computer demonstrated “quantum supremacy.”
But what does that mean exactly?
Quantum computers’ potential and the advantages they promise over classical computers all remain largely theoretical, and hypothetically speaking, it is predicted that quantum computers will be able to solve problems that are beyond the reach of the classical computers we use today. Passing such a threshold will be considered proof of what we call “quantum supremacy.”
Dani, a game developer, recently made a game and decided to train an AI to play it.
A couple of weeks ago I made a video “Making a Game in ONE Day (12 Hours)”, and today I’m trying to teach an A.I to play my game!
Basically I’m gonna use Neural Networks to make the A.I learn to play my game.
This is something I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m really happy I finally got around to do it. Some of the biggest inspirations for this is obviously carykh, Jabrils & Codebullet!
A lot has changed since I earned my degree in Computer Science, but the fundamentals like math and set theory have remained relatively constant. Ironically, I was student who loathed math for most of my academic career or at least I thought I did. I enjoyed Discrete Mathematics and Set Theory.
In truth, Computer Science majors have to learn a different kind of math compared to most other majors (except of course math majors). These branches of math are critical for those looking to go into research in fields like computer science, AI, or even pure mathematical research.
Devon Crawford explains the fundamentals of coding C/C++ in just over eight minutes.
While I wouldn’t say it would replace a computer science degree, it’s a great jump into C, a language that inspires fear and awe.
Here’s a highlight reel from Microsoft CEO’s keynote with only the roundtable about quantum computing
We take computers for granted, but what about the field of study behind it? Watch this video for a perspective on the technology that shapes our world.
