How to think like a computer scientist?

What is science? What is computer science anyway? Computer science is the study of computers. It is an art of science that representing and processing information. How about the definition of a computer scientist? Each person has their own perspective and way of looking at things about the definition itself. It is more related to the concept of theoretical, engineering and solution provided on a specific domain of computer science. Most of the time, computer scientist field conquered by male gender instead of a female because of the two reasons.

Learn Python for Data Science

Why Python?

To help many others learn python faster, I decided to create this tutorial. We will take bite-sized information on how to use Python for Data Science in this tutorial, practice it until we are comfortable and use it for our own purpose. Why learn Python for data science? Recently, Python has gained a lot of interest as a language choice for data science because of extensive support libraries from the communities, integration feature and improved programmer’s productivity. However, there are several limitations such as difficulty in using other languages (not many similarities such as semicolons or declaring cast type), weak in mobile computing, gets slow in speed (compiler), run-time errors (strict design restrictions) and lack database access layers.

Is it possible to make a realistic DeepFake video?

The answer is no. Making it looks like someone was doing something or saying something that never occurred is more difficult than it sounds. It caused me to produce a “deepfake” video when I heard this news spread like a wildfire throughout the nation. I attempted to convince myself that this is a fake video produced by those who want to gain political interest. But the main reason I’m eager to do it because of someone offers RM4000 ($900) for those who can produce a realistic deepfake video within 48 hours. Maybe I can purchase a lot of Pokemon booster box if I won. So I took up the challenge.

The Dunning-Krueger Effect in Business, or Why You need Business Analysis?

The Dunning-Kruger Effect is a cognitive bias where the unskilled rate their ability higher than the average while competent people undervalue their ability.

Compare to Imposter Syndrome, it is a feeling that people who have succeeded at something experience, believing that it was just luck or chance that lead to their success, not their abilities. Instead, Dunning-Kruger subjects believe they are very intelligent and tend to over-inflate their abilities because they can’t recognize their incompetence in comparison to others

How stuck in Limbo feels like?

There are many stages of depression.

In many respects, when the worst has gone, when a depressed individual is better, but not completely well, the most awkward stage of depression is. Our thinking about this stage is stunned by the ongoing dominance of the depression disease phase. Depression is the disease in complete bloom, the acute phase, first and foremost. But when depression is in its twilight, it’s a kind of conceptual limbo when it slowly fades into a normal poor mood.
