The Postulates of Quantum Mechanics

Disclaimer: I have assumed that the reader has a certain level of familiarity with basic high school math. “Anyone who is not shocked by quantum mechanics hasn’t understood it.” -Niels Bohr So! The double slit experiment has probably given you an idea about the workings in the quantum world. Let’s move on to the postulates … Continue reading The Postulates of Quantum Mechanics

Machine Learning: A Perfunctory Overview

What is Machine Learning? Machine Learning is a sub-set of artificial intelligence where computer algorithms are used to autonomously learn from data and information. In machine learning computers don’t have to be explicitly programmed but can change and improve their algorithms by themselves. When did this act of "Training Machines" begin? A chronological arrangement of … Continue reading Machine Learning: A Perfunctory Overview

Beginning of the Qubit I (The Double Slit Experiment)

Quantum mechanics took the world of physics by storm, phase by phase. But a paper by Richard Phillips Feynman changed the domain of computer science and the relationship between physics and computer science forever. Through that paper was born the qubit. Before we go in however, we must learn the tenets of quantum mechanics. And … Continue reading Beginning of the Qubit I (The Double Slit Experiment)

The Turing Test

If you have ever watched the Benedict Cumberbatch starrer “The Imitation Game”, you might be well familiar with who Alan Turing is. Alan Turing was a famous English computer scientist, cryptologist and mathematician who is considered as one of the pioneers of Artificial Intelligence. “Can machines think?” this seemingly inane and rather strange question bothered … Continue reading The Turing Test
