What’s the Difference Between Vertical Farming and Machine Learning?

What you’ll learn What is vertical farming? Why is this author comparing it to machine learning? Is there really any relationship between these two things? Sometimes inspiration comes in the oddest ways. I like to watch CBS News Sunday Morning because of the variety of stories they air. Recently, they did one on “Vertical Farming … Read more

Memrise’s language learning courses leave Duolingo in the dust

Rita El Khoury / Android Authority I grew up as a trilingual person, speaking Arabic natively, French quasi-natively, and English since I was eight years old. I was pretty happy with this versatile knowledge until I met my husband and he started teaching me some basic Spanish too. I spent a few months parsing Spanish … Read more

Machine Learning: Building the Bigger Picture by Leveraging Data

What you’ll learn: Different types of machine learning. Learn about types of supervised and unsupervised machine-learning approaches. Machine learning (ML) is a method of data analysis that automates analytical model building. It’s a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) based on the idea that systems can learn from data, identify patterns, and make decisions with minimal … Read more

Gamification has taken the fun out of exercise & learning

Andy Walker / Android Authority While some of its early hype has died down, the concept of gamification – rewarding mundane tasks by turning them into games – has not only killed, but thoroughly wedged itself into society. It’s especially commonplace when it comes to digital learning and fitness tracking, so much so that you … Read more

Blending Machine Learning and Radar for Enhanced Navigation

What you’ll learn: What’s enabled by central processing architecture? The advantage of having radar and camera versus one or the other. What is the problem is with LiDAR? Two hot technologies these days are artificial intelligence (AI) and self-driving cars. One of the sensors used with the latter is radar. Oculii is a company that’s … Read more
