VALUABLE LESSONS: ALAN TURING FATHER OF COMPUTER SCIENCE.

Quite mind-boggling and lot of goose bump moments while watching the movie The Imitation Game.

Alan Turing , in full Alan Mathison Turing, (born June 23, 1912, London, England—died June 7, 1954, Wilmslow, Cheshire), British mathematician and logician, who made major contributions to mathematics, cryptanalysis, logic, philosophy, and mathematical biology and also to the new areas later named computer science, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and artificial life.

The moment the movie got over, I started searching documentaries and started finding books too. Precisely, Alan’s curiosity on building a machine and decrypting enigma code seems too interesting in the movie.

It was really special experience to watch this movie. I won’t simply watch a movie or reading stuff for entertainment purpose. Something has to impact me. Not purely based on motivation. Of course, there should be a motivation. Along with that, particular character/scenes/words/statements/books are the one that drives humans in an impactful way or in a professional manner.

I would sincerely encourage the readers to watch this movie.

Here are the quotes and insights from Alan Turing.

One more interesting article, I found which is from pbs.org, 8 things you don’t know about Alan Turing.

1. He was an Olympic-level runner.

2. He embodied some values of the Hippie movement.

3. He got bad grades and frustrated his teachers.

3. He got bad grades and frustrated his teachers.

5. He developed a new field of biology out of his fascination with daisies.

6. He stuttered when talking.

7. He didn’t keep his sexuality a secret among friends.

8. He refused to let a punishment of chemical castration stop him from working.

VALUABLE LESSONS: Geoffrey E. Hinton the Godfather of AI.

Over the last two years, my curiosity and misunderstandings in AI Artificial Intelligence was skyrocketing. I was such a beginner to read passionately about data and AI. More often, I misunderstood. But still looking for books, research papers to read and videos on AI documentaries and experts lectures too. I watched a video from Bloomberg Quicktake YouTube channel by Bloomberg Businessweek’s Ashlee Vance meets the “Godfather of AI”. I downloaded it. It is still my YouTube offline video. This is the moment where I started going quite a bit deeper on professor Hinton’s work and visiting his website and started reading some of the materials and watching lectures. So far I could see more on professor lectures on Neural Network and Deep Learning.

Professor Hinton got his PhD on Artificial Intelligence in University  of  Edinburgh 1978.

If readers look at his website, you can see more academic work or if you look at his Wikipedia these are his fields; Machine Learning, Neural Network, Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, Object Recognition.

So here, I searched professor Hinton’s views on AI, Deep Learning and few more through pictures. Please have a look.

I would sincerely encourage you all to visit the links down below.

VALUABLE LESSONS: FIVE HACKERS QUOTES WE SHOULD KNOW.

Hacking is not a crime, it’s a profession till the time you play with it safely.

Anonymous.

A hacker doesnt deliberately destroy data or profit from his activities.

Kevin Mitnick.

Hacking involves a different way of looking at problems that no one’s thought of.

-Walter O’Brien.

Most hackers are young because young people tend to be adaptable. As long as you remain adaptable, you can always be a good hacker.

Emmanuel Goldstein.

I’m a hacker, but I’m the good kind of hackers. And I’ve never been a criminal.

-Mikko Hypponen.

Two more bonus,

If you wanna know how not secure you are, just take a look around. Nothing’s secure. Nothing’s safe. I don’t hate technology, I don’t hate hackers, because that’s just what comes with it, without those hackers we wouldn’t solve the problems we need to solve, especially security.

-Fred Durst.

There are more hackers breeding every day, and more brilliant minds are turning into hackers. Security has advanced, but so have hackers.
