An introduction to Generative Adversarial Networks and how you can implement one yourself
You might not know this but… you have eyes!
Without our vision, our human existence would have easily gone extinct a really, really, long time ago! We can react to the things happening around us. Without our vision, humans wouldn’t be able to understand and evaluate our surrounding environment. We wouldn’t be able to discover new land or discover how our solar system works. Without vision, you wouldn’t be reading this right now.
Now, of course, it isn’t just our eyes that play a role in our vision. Our brains also play a massive role as well.
Our brains are the ones that take what we are seeing and tells us how we should react in milliseconds. …
“AI doesn’t have to be evil to destroy humanity — if AI has a goal and humanity just happens to come in the way, it will destroy humanity as a matter of course without even thinking about it, no hard feelings.”

There is a revolutionary technology that is being used across the world in your everyday life, and you may not even recognize it. Whether that be from using a voice-assistant like Sri or Google or even browsing the internet, you have used Artificial Intelligence before.
Like you or some people you know, there are many people out there that are teaching each other many new things. You too may be teaching someone and you may not even recognize it. At the same time, even more, people are learning something new that they could apply in the real world.
There is a new genome editing technology that allows us to search, and replace genetic codes in DNA strands, ultimately curing genetic conditions/diseases and saving lives. This technology is called prime editing but before we talk about this, we need some background knowledge that will serve to to help us understand this technology.
Have you ever wondered, why and how we have the same eye colour as our parents, or why we have curly or straight hair? This is because of the genes in our DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). What is DNA? DNA is a long molecule that contains unique genetic code found in all living cells. This molecule that looks like a spiral ladder is called a double helix, and it contains all the information that is needed for the development, functioning, growth and reproduction of all living things. Our DNA holds the instructions for making all the proteins necessary for our body. Our DNA instruct amino acids how to combine and what shape to make, so they meet their desired purpose in our body. If these amino acids are not in the right shape, their function will not work. …
