Deep learning is revolutionizing the world, whether from teaching computers to drive to even using them to assist doctors! But when it comes to deep learning, the biggest factor for this success is the vast amount of labelled data while training.

However, this still restricts applicability in many areas relating to natural language processing (NLP — the linguistics side of AI). This is mainly because there is a lot more unlabelled data than it is labelled. Now, annotating this unlabelled data could solve this problem, but that’s extremely time-consuming and costly.

Being able to learn from unlabelled data is also…

We humans are really bad at cleaning up after ourselves.

With over 5 trillion metric tons of plastic polluting our world, only 8–9% of it gets recycled. 3.1 million tons of PET (polyethylene terephthalate), a commonly used plastic polymer, is produced every single year, leaving a total of 3 trillion tons of plastic in Canada and the US alone.

With this being such a big problem, we haven’t found a way to entirely get rid of this plastic sustainably. Sure, many people do burn tons of plastic to get rid of it but at the end of the day, it’s…

Loading up the old Minecraft

It’s Saturday and you have nothing to do, so you decide to have some fun and play a little minecraft! You load up a new world and wait for your computer to load all of those chunks of data. It finished loading after only 7 seconds and you start playing in your new world!

It only took a short amount of time, because it’s a new world and there is very little data the world needs to generate.

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 play a massive role as well.

Our brains are the…

“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.

The human blueprint (DNA)

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…
