As much of world is practicing “social distancing” or some version of it, I would venture to guess that many are getting “cabin fever” from the extended isolation. For me this condition has led to a blurred line between work and home and more interestingly news coverage and formal applications.
I can’t remember when I last opened a technical manual or document to looked up how to do something. Maybe it was when I bought a 56K modem in 1999 to connect to the World Wide Web.

Artificial intelligence is a hot topic these days and therefore doesn’t require a repeat of the current and future potential uses for AI. For most people it means technology advancements on the software side but If you ask people who are very close to this technology domain, building your own optimized hardware chips is where significant part of the competitive edge lies.
Imagine the scene. It’s Friday night, and you’ve decided to relax and watch a movie. Given the overwhelming amount of choices, you’ve already spent over an hour watching trailers to choose the movie and you’re finally almost ready to go. All that’s left is the popcorn. You go over to the microwave and get it going. For a little while nothing happens, but then you start to hear the pops, slowly at first but then much more rapidly before beginning to taper off. You then have to ask yourself: When do I stop? This is a big question. Take it out too soon and you’re going to break your teeth on those unpopped kernels. Leave it in too long and you risk burning it. How can you know if its popped long enough?
