Computer-based personality judgments are more accurate than those made by humans | PNAS

This is scary and makes me wonder, how those in power and authority might be using these algorithms

The Coming Software Apocalypse - The Atlantic

Code makes you miss the forest for the trees. (and many more quotable lines) that will make you pause and think about your job as a software engineer today. 

Coming to think of it, Visual IQ, where I interned in 2015, follows this model-based approach from a long time. I got to work on a project to build a drag and drop tool for the Business analysts to create flow charts that would generate code automatically at the backend and save them the time spent on coding, they simply focused on making the flow charts right and covering all scenarios. They took up that project for development that year. Little did I know it would turn out to be so useful.

Quantum Computing Expert Explains One Concept in 5 Levels of Difficulty | WIRED - YouTube

Super-positions, entanglement, more memory, really cold temperature, interference(noise cancelling), quantum-bed entanglable superconducting cubit states, 

Encode: assembly-language for a quantum computers, chip - carrier of info, microwave pulses, quantum algorithms(a decade later), 

Uses: simulating nature, atom orbital overlap, mimic other crazy stuff in chemistry, biology, 

Access - to 3 free quatum computers (YaY!!)

Opportunity - near -term application (grad-students)

Challenges - Fault tolerance, adding cubits doesn't help, decoherence (WHAA??)

John Conway's Game of Life

It all began with a casual conversion at breakfast with a colleague. "Why did we learn ToC in college?"('Theory of Computation') Ashamed that our brains couldn't come up with a use-case, we decided to find out. Found this somewhere in between that.

FIRSTS. Women who broke the glass ceiling.

What shocked me was that there were only 46 names on board! One, I'm pretty sure, that there were many more. Two, I believe with all my heart that we need to interfere more in more fields, there are definitely more than 46 fields in this world where women can be first! :P
