As the world continues to cope with the new normal due to COVID-19, many educational institutions are faced with numerous questions about the start of the new school year. Fall 2020 will bring the first-ever start of a distance-learning year at some primary and secondary schools and universities, while others will offer blended options to their students. Remote learning will be integrated to some extent in all educational institutions.

Is Python storming ahead of Java in fintech?

Article | March 18, 2020

The use of Python is catching up to Java in banking and fintech applications, but what are the reasons behind the emergence of Python? While three million developers have joined the Java community in the past year, in the banking sector, Python is fast closing in on Java’s position in top spot. Python’s backstory in banking Across all sectors, Python has reached seven million active developers fuelled in part by a staggering 62% of machine learning developers and data scientists who now use the programming language.

NEUROMORPHIC CHIPS: THE THIRD WAVE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Article | April 10, 2020

The age of traditional computers is reaching its limit. Without innovations taking place, it is difficult to move past the technology threshold. Hence it is necessary to bring major design transformation with improved performance that can change the way we view computers. The Moore’s law (named after Gordon Moore, in 1965) states that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles about every two years while their price halves. But now the law is losing its validity. Hence hardware and software experts have come up with two solutions: Quantum Computing and Neuromorphic Computing. While quantum computing has made major strides, neuromorphic is still in its lab stage, until recently when Intel announced its neuromorphic chip, Loihi. This may indicate the third wave of Artificial Intelligence.

The Nuts and Bolts of Deep Learning Algorithms for Object Detection

Article | August 14, 2020

You just got a new drone and you want it to be super smart! Maybe it should detect whether workers are properly wearing their helmets or how big the cracks on a factory rooftop are. In this blog post, we’ll look at the basic methods of object detection (Exhaustive Search, R-CNN, Fast R-CNN and Faster R-CNN) and try to understand the technical details of each model. The best part? We’ll do all of this without any formula, allowing readers with all levels of experience to follow along! Finally, we will follow this post with a second one, where we will take a deeper dive into Single Shot Detector (SSD) networks and see how this can be deployed… on a drone.
