Researchers worldwide are developing new technologies for studying, documenting and triggering quantum phase transitions. Learning more about them could open up new possibilities in materials science, electronics and quantum computing. What makes these transitions unique from classical phase transitions? What approaches are scientists using to study them? Quantum Phase … [Read more...] about Developing Technology for Studying Quantum Phase Transitions
The Importance of Maths Education to the Future of Big Data
Big data is a hot topic that shows up somewhat regularly in all aspects of our lives. These days big data plays a role in nearly everything: the music we listen to, the GPS that guides us around new places, the healthcare system we are dependent upon, and so much more. Over 2,500 petabytes of data are collected daily and used to make our lives easier and more efficient. There … [Read more...] about The Importance of Maths Education to the Future of Big Data
How to Perform a GRU Implementation in TensorFlow
MLPs (Multi-Layer Perceptrons) are great for many classification and regression tasks, but it is hard for MLPs to do classification and regression on sequences. In this code tutorial, a GRU is implemented in TensorFlow. Introduction A sequence is an ordered set of items and sequences appear everywhere. In the stock market, the closing price is a sequence. Here, time is the … [Read more...] about How to Perform a GRU Implementation in TensorFlow
Great Mathematical API by Wolfram
I was in the process of computing some definite integrals involving special mathematical constants, when I discovered WolframAlpha. It solves tons of mathematical problems, for free, online, offering exact solutions whenever possible. Not just integrals, but matrix computations and much more. In my case, I was trying to see, if by computing an integral in two different ways, … [Read more...] about Great Mathematical API by Wolfram
Artificial Intelligence Regulation: Let’s not Regulate Mathematics!
On Wednesday, ahead of todays White House Frontiers Conference, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy released its report on Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence. The report is optimistic, comprehensive and well-balanced. In summary: full-speed ahead. But lets be smart when it comes to Artificial Intelligence regulation. The premise is … [Read more...] about Artificial Intelligence Regulation: Let’s not Regulate Mathematics!
