Deep Learning – Neural Networks

Introduction Deep Learning is a subfield of machine learning and artificial intelligence. It involves using certain types of algorithms called Neural Networks inspired by the structure and function of the brain. This technology lies behind everyday products and services such as digital assistants, voice-enabled TV remotes, and credit card fraud detection as well as emerging … Read more

The Advent of Machine Learning

Introduction Machine Learning refers to the phenomenon of systems learning and improving themselves autonomously after they have been initially setup. It is an application of the broader and exciting field of Artificial Intelligence. Arthur Samuel of IBM, is credited with the coining of the term, “machine learning” during his research with the game of checkers. … Read more

Artificial Intelligence – The Rising Revolution

Introduction Artificial Intelligence is a self-evolving software in which cognitive features like learning, reasoning, creativity and perception are coded-in to mimic humans. Nowadays such codes are there in everything, from cloud-based enterprise applications, to consumer apps and even embedded firmwares. According to Fortune Business Insights, in 2022 the global artificial intelligence market size was valued … Read more

Accessibility to High-End Services – Cloud Computing

Introduction Cloud Computing refers to the service of providing computing resources over the internet. These resources may include applications, servers, data storage, development tools and networking capabilities. The Cloud Service Provider usually charges a subscription fee for the services or bills according to usage. According to Fortune Business Insights, the global cloud computing market size … Read more

The Fantasy of Virtual Reality

Introduction Virtual Reality is a simulated environment that mimics reality for an observer. For this it uses devices like headsets and goggles to provide services like training, education, tourism and gaming. The importance of VR can be gauged from the fact that the global VR market size in 2022 was estimated at USD 59.96 billion … Read more

Cyber Security – Our Evolving Guardian

Introduction The express expansion of Information Technology to the four corners of the world, though has increased connectivity, it has also compromised individual privacy. Statistics confirm this unambiguously and comprehensively: A 2014 report sponsored by McAfee estimated that cybercrime had resulted in $445 billion USD in annual damage to the global economy. The World Economic … Read more

The Paradigm of Edge Computing

The Concept All computing networks normally have a tendency to expand. This expansion though allows for greater use cases and population, it comes at the cost of speed and bandwidth, especially if the computing nodes are far and few. Edge Computing ameliorates this problem to a great extent, by introducing several sub-autonomous processing stations near … Read more

The Idea of Blockchain

Introduction Blockchain is essentially a digital ledger. It maintains an encrypted, unalterable record of commercial transactions on all nodes of a given computer network thus creating an environment of mutual trust and confidence.  The records in a Blockchain are called blocks and are stored in chronological order.The information is encrypted using cryptography to protect the … Read more

The Promise of Quantum Computing

The Basic Idea Conventional computers work on binary bits – 0 and 1. Quantum Computers work in qubits and their several different superposition states. The increase in possible states per unit leads to greater versatility, which leads to faster calculations per unit volume. However, near-zero temperatures are required for qubits to maintain their states for … Read more
