Here’s an interesting look at how big big data is from Computerphile, for those not satisfied with my “Costco Test for Big Data.”
Tom Scott and Computerphile team up to explain the worst ways to store passwords in your apps.
If you’ve never seen a hackspace up close and personal, then you’re missing out. There are quite a few around the world. Microsoft has several on its larger campuses. In Microsoft terms, they are referred to as the Garage. There’s even on at the Rockville Science Center.
Hackspaces are locations where people can work on various hardware projects, have access to specialized equipment, and learn various aspects of hardware and software programming.
In this video from Computerphile, take a virtual tour of the hackspace in Nottingham, UK.
Dr Mike Pound on the Viola/Jones algorithm, a face detection algorithm that does not use deep learning, but is so good that it’s still in use today.

Continuing to address the challenges of AI safety, Rob Miles discusses a paper from the Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI)
Computerphile has a great video explaining Generative Adversarial Networks aka GANs.
Computerphile interviews Aaron Jackson from the Computer Vision Laboratory at University of Nottingham, who talks about his work on converting a single 2D photo into a 3D model of your face.
Is it magic? No, it’s Convolutional Neural Networks at work.
