Undoubtedly, the eye is one of nature’s most precious gifts. It permits us to do all sorts of tasks like reading, working or watching television. But imagine having vision like this:


Quantum Teleportation 101

To be able to instantaneously move from one location to another has always been a fascination for us humans. From ancient myths to Star Trek, we have always seen teleportation as magic or science fiction. But it’s not fiction — It’s reality!

With Quantum Teleportation we can achieve teleportation! Well kind of at least…

What is Quantum Teleportation? 🤯


Quantum Computing 101

Imagine having a computer that was lightning fast. Something that was billions of times faster than anything on the market. That would be awesome! You could play Minecraft at a bazillion frames per second, search through terabits of data super quickly, and even design new drugs!

That may seem like a distant dream, but the reality is: it’s here! Quantum Computing!

For certain functions, quantum computing is blazing fast compared to what classical computers can do. Back in October of 2019, Google announced that they have achieved Quantum Supremacy for a certain task. …

The Egyptian empire. For more than 3000 years it stood as a tall and mighty civilization. They built pyramids, worshiped mysterious gods, and created legends.

But their stories and culture were all recorded in hieroglyphs. An extinct language.

No one knew what those symbols meant, it was impossible to decrypt. Just think about it, 3000 years of history and treasures locked away just out of our reach.

And the same can be said about our DNA.


A Guide To Generative Adversarial Networks

What would you do with a humanoid robot? Get it to go to work for you? Create the next trillion-dollar company? Or take over the world?

(Un)Fortunately, our technology isn’t advanced enough to create those robots. But we can definitely make progress toward it! One start is the physical appearance of the robot — and with Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) we can create hyper-realistic faces.

Take, for example, the image below. There are 3 humans and 1 generated human. Which one is it? (Scroll slowly)


Let me tell you why

Imani

This is Imani. Growing up in an immigrant family, she dreamed of going to Harvard. She worked hard, studied those long nights, and one day she got in. There, she toiled and drove herself to graduate with honours. With her prestigious degree in computer science, along with an increasingly open job market, Imani expected to land a job easily. But no one got back to her. Days turned into weeks and Imani didn’t get a single interview.

How odd.

The reason can be traced back to this study, which found that African Americans have a 52% lower chance to be…

Stop. Close your eyes and think: What’s the meaning of your life?

So, what did you come up with? Nothing right? Yeah! That’s exactly what I felt a few months ago. I was preparing for an interview when it hit me. I asked myself this question over and over again trying to get an answer out of me. What is our purpose in this universe?

So I asked my family and friends and they responded just as I had. How come? The problem was that none of us ever stopped to think about these kinds of meta-questions.

What’s the most flexible thing in this universe? A slinky? An acrobatic? Stretch Armstrong? Wrong! It’s actually something you’re using right now — the 🧠!

Just think about it, we humans are able to do crazy things! We can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, diagnose diseases, and invent new technologies, all with the human mind. In fact, the hardware in your skull can do anything that any other human has done before!

So let’s transfer that same power to an artificial system. That’s where Neural Networks (NN) come in! They have comparable power and flexibility to ours! …

What would you do with an artificial brain? Do your homework? Beat the stock market? Take over the world? The possibilities are endless. What if I told you that humans have already built an artificial brain?

In fact, we have! — well kinda. It’s not as complex as our brains, but they’re extremely powerful tools that have the power to change the world. They’re called Neural Networks.

What’s a Neural Network?

A Neural Network (or NN for short) is a group of connected nodes that are able to take in information, process it, and then produce an output.

One example of a NN would…

You hear the words “Machine Learning” and “Artificial Intelligence” tossed around all the time nowadays. News articles pop up about how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being used for predictive policing. You hear how companies are rushing to implement Machine Learning (ML) into their products. But what are AI and ML? How does it work? Read on to find out.

What’s the Difference? What are They?

In everyday life, we use ML interchangeably with AI, but they’re different! AI is the whole domain whereas ML is a specific field in AI. In other words, AI is to math as ML is to geometry.

So what are they…
