Quantum Internet Is Now Turning Into a Reality

Quantum Internet Is Now Turning Into a Reality
 

Scientists across the globe are looking forward towards formulating new methods to realize ‘quantum internet’, an unhackable internet, which connects particles linked together by the principle of quantum entanglement. In simple terms, quantum internet will entail multiple particles striking information at each other in the form of quantum signals – but specialists are yet to figure out what it actually does beyond that. The term ‘quantum internet’ is quite sketchy at this moment. There’s no real definition of it as of now.

Business Intelligence: Now Every Person Can Use Data to Make Better Decisions

The fascinating world of Business Intelligence is expanding. The role of data scientists is evolving. The mysticism associated with data analytics is breaking off, making a way for non-technical background people to understand and dig deeper into the nuances and metrics of data science.
 
Business Intelligence: Now Every Person Can Use Data to Make Better Decisions
 

“Data democratization is about creating an environment where every person who can use data to make better decisions, has access to the data they need when they need it,” says Amir Orad, CEO of BI software company Sisense. Data is not to be limited only in the hands of data scientists, employees throughout the organization should have easy access to data, as and when required.

Curiosity is Vital: How Machine Inquisitiveness Improves the Ability to Perform Smartly

What happens when a computer algorithm merges with a form of artificial curiosity – to solve precarious problems?

Meticulous researchers at the University of California, Berkeley framed an “intrinsic curiosity model” to make their learning algorithm function even when there is a lack of strong feedback signal. The pioneering model developed by this team visions the AI software controlling a virtual agent in video games in pursuit of maximising its understanding of its environment and related aspects affecting that environment. Previously, there have been numerous attempts to render AI agents’ curiosity, but this time the trick is simpler and rewarding.

After Chess, Draughts and Backgammon, How Google’s AlphaGo Win at Go
 

Two decades ago, if someone asked me to write a computer program that played tic-tac-toe, I would have failed horribly. Now being an accomplished computer programmer, I know the desirable tricks to solve tic-tac-toe with the help of “Minimax Algorithm”, and what it takes is just about an hour to jot down the program. No doubt, my coding skills have evolved over the period of time, but also computer science technology has reached unattainable heights.

Shadowing a Data Architect for a Day!

Shadowing a Data Architect for a Day!
 

A data architect is a noteworthy role in the present analytics industry. One can naturally evolve from a data analyst or a database designer to a data architect after gathering sufficient experience in the field. The prominence of this role showcases the emergence of the online websites and other internet avenues which require the integration of data from several unrelated data sources.

Harnessing Big Data for Water Management

Appalling forces are re-establishing the relationship between humans and water.

 

In the past, communities developed slowly, while the weather remained constant. Water sources never depleted at tumultuous rates as it has today. Water is no longer a dependable resource. That’s why many countries and cities are embracing smart technologies to manage water efficiently and preserve it for the coming generations.

Knock! Knock! It’s Time to Change Your Bad Data Habits

Knock! Knock! It’s Time to Change Your Bad Data Habits
 

Do you follow your instincts instead of data and insights?

Do you prefer storing data in different databases, in separate formats with varying values?

Habits are subject to change. Though it may take some time, but eventually it evolves. Good and bad habits make a person. Good habits don’t demand attention, but bad habits often need to be looked into.
