Blockchain Inside Out in Simple Words
Two years ago I wrote a post called "Brave Decentralized World" mainly focused on the subject of decentralized networks. It was packed with a brief history of Fidonet, Napster, Gnutella, TOR, BitTorrent with its DHT extension, and there I spoke just a bit about the blockchain concept. Nowadays, when a half of my friends are playing on cryptocurrency exchange sites, and the other half – preparing for ICOs, surprisingly, only a few of them understand [...]
The Most Powerful Machine Learning Techniques in Data Mining
Advanced machine learning techniques are at the nexus of informatics in every industry and field of inquiry, and data mining is among the most intensive areas of focus in the broad field of machine learning today. Data mining techniques include algorithms such as classification, decision tree, neural networks and regression to name a few. In this ByteScout article, we will explore data mining techniques in depth, and cover the most important methods now at the [...]
Rust vs. C++: A brief Overview
The year 1979 saw Danish computer scientist, ‘Bjarne Stroustrup’ working on a project of C language, that he called ‘C with Classes’. He enriched C language by introducing new features like classes, derived classes, default arguments and inlining to the C compiler. 14 years later, ‘C with Classes’ was labeled ‘C++’ with the addition of virtual functions, operator overloading, references etc. Fast forward to 2016, C++ continues to be the go-to language of modern-day programmers [...]
Most Influential Pre-Trained Machine Learning Models
Did you know that new drugs are now designed by machine learning models? ML is pervasive in every industry because leading companies can no longer compete without mining and exploiting these rich and expansive new benefits. ML algorithms can recognize patterns in data that people cannot see, and often cannot even understand. Paypal uses ML to identify potential fraud and estimate risk in customer behavior. Uber uses ML to estimate arrival times based on myriad [...]
Most popular CDN Services You Must Check
A Content Delivery Network or CDN helps speeding up the access to a website by shortening the virtual distance between the people visiting a site and the server delivering its content. In most cases, a site’s components and its static data are distributed and saved on servers around the globe. That way, anyone accessing the site from anywhere in the world is able to load content from a local server instead of having to wait [...]
Professional JavaScript 2018: New Frontiers & Strict Standards
New standard methods of JavaScript development are at hand and demand our attention because of their potential for voluminous deployment across millions of important websites today. The new ECMAScript 2017 defines world changing optimizations which we can deploy to greatly improve performance. JavaScript’s extensibility recently appears boundless. Frameworks such as AngularJS have reshaped JavaScript development with truly dynamic SPAs. Libraries like JQuery are now so prolific and commonly used that JQuery appears alongside JavaScript as [...]
