From the beginning of my AI journey, I found several ideas and concepts promising unparalleled potential; Pieces of research and development that were absolutely mind-blowing; And breakthroughs that pushed this field forward, leaving their mark on its glorious history.
Also, in the last few years, the number of people pointing to the “Skynet-terminator” scenario has increased exponentially … ^_^!
So today, I decided to curate a list of some of the most interesting ideas and concepts (from my own experience) that kept me going all these years.
I hope they’ll inspire you…
Last year (In 2019), a company (Can’t disclose their name!), conducted a National Level Machine Learning Competition for hiring purposes. The competition itself was hosted on HackerEarth.
On the page it said:
[We are] looking for passionate ML Developers with hands-on skills in Machine Learning and Analytical skills to join their dynamic team in Hyderabad.
Years of Experience: 0 to 2 years
Skills: Machine Learning and Analytical skills
I was really excited about this 13-day competition because of my strong interest in the field of Machine learning and Deep Learning. ^_^!
So let’s dive into the details to…
Consciousness is a highly abstract idea with no clear or fixed definition what-so-ever. Many scientists and philosophers have tried to solve its mystery but, none of them has fully satisfied us yet. And with the rise of new machine learning techniques and deep neural networks, it’s becoming harder to do so, day by day.
The idea of consciousness is strongly connected to Artificial Intelligence because it is our ultimate goal, isn’t it? To achieve Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) at the end.
Our pop culture has already explored this idea in movies and…
Let me say it again,
“Some things are meant to be hacked!”
A couple of days back, I installed a government app (cannot disclose which, because they haven’t released the patch yet) in which I found a severe vulnerability lurking around the corner of a simple OTP (One-Time Password) mechanism.
I don’t know whether it was a mistake of a programmer, or was it intentionally rigged, but it looked pretty suspicious to me.
I saw “patterns” in OTPs.
Allow me to explain …
For those who don’t know, OTP mechanisms are pretty common in Indian Apps, where they…
If you’re a Paying Medium Member, the chances are, you want to utilize this platform to the fullest. And if you’ve hit the point where you’re feeling stunt, “not growing anymore,” then this is THE article for you.
I’m a freelance writer, and I’ve been on Medium for a couple of months now. Here I’ve seen: Great writers dumbing down original stories for extended user retention; Creative storytellers abandoning complex topics to reach a wider audience; Clever wordsmiths avoiding perfect-but-unconventional phrases so readers can “digest” sentences easily.
In short, the Intentional Degradation of Quality has become the new norm.
Self-esteem — the desire to feel good and confident; is placed at the fourth rank in Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs but becomes a priority when it comes to the game of negotiation.
And who wins the game? Clearly the one who is more confident, and is in power!
Power, in common words, is defined as the ability of an individual to influence others’ opinions, beliefs, and actions.
Usually, it originates from hierarchies: the ranking systems present all around the world. Jordan Peterson once said in an interview that “Hierarchies are inevitable.” …
Earlier this year, before the pandemic, I was planning my holiday trip online after a very long time. And I was absolutely amazed by how easy it has become to do such a complicated task within an hour. But then I thought, what’s the magic behind this transformation.

Juggling in between careers, while struggling to find your destined dream job? Don’t fret! It happens to the best of us. While switching careers can be frustrating, time-taking, and a bit risky, you’d be surprised how much job-hopping has increased over the years.
In fact, according to a recent research survey, people all over the globe switch between 15 careers on average. While the field of cybersecurity or technology is no different. According to another research study, in cybersecurity or technology, 9 out of 10 cyberspace experts switch careers for the sake of more money.
So, do you need to…
In a recent interview conducted by Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) Clips, Edward Snowden, an ex-CIA employee and an American whistleblower discussed extensively whether smartphones are listening to people’s conversations or are they just a hoax? If yes, then how are they compromising users’ digital-wellbeing?
There are a plethora of cases in which smartphone users all over the globe have noticed “pin-point accurate targeted-ads” in their social media feeds shortly after talking on the same subject with someone.
For instance, people have witnessed that shortly after talking about going on a vacation with…
