Microsoft, Github and OpenAI to pair up on a new tool for coding

Microsoft has now paired up with Github and OpenAI to create an artificial intelligence system that can recommend code to software developers. The system which has been named Github Copilot, will be able to draw upon source code from Github to assess and suggest code. Now this has been a concept that has been researched … Continue reading Microsoft, Github and OpenAI to pair up on a new tool for coding

Mental Handwriting on Text – AI using a brain computer interface

Scientists have now found a new method for helping people with disabilities to communicate their thoughts - handwriting. It has been found that brain activity is associated with trying to write letters by hand.

Helping patients get some shut eye with the help of AI

A team from Feinstein Institute of Research thinks that AI can be a major key in helping patients with their rest schedules. Almost 95% of patients are actually disturbed during those few moments of sleep just because the nurse had to come in at "that moment" to take their vitals. And it's not just the … Continue reading Helping patients get some shut eye with the help of AI

30 Days of Google Cloud – My Experience and Feedback

On October 4th, I was given the opportunity to use Google Cloud for a period of 30 days to hone my skills in the cloud. And in return, I'd get skill badges from Google and eventually if I complete the track, I'd be able to win a T-Shirt from Google as a prize. For each … Continue reading 30 Days of Google Cloud – My Experience and Feedback

Social Media predicting educational outcomes of students using AI technology

Ivan Smirnov, the Leading Research Fellow of the Laboratory of Computational Social Sciences at the Institute of Education of HSE University, has created a computer model that can distinguish the high achievers vs the low achievers using their social media posts. Using a range of parameters such as vocabulary, emojis, post length, word length, the … Continue reading Social Media predicting educational outcomes of students using AI technology

Finishing a Course in Python

As you may all know, I'm not someone who has the background computer science experience from high school, like most people who take a computer science degree. Therefore, because of that reason, I decided to take a course in Python by the University of Michigan over the summer and prep my basic coding skills. The … Continue reading Finishing a Course in Python

Another Accreditation Earned in Cloud Computing

Yesterday, I received my AWS Technical Professional Accreditation which puts me a step further on my journey to cloud computing.
