As we have observed, computer technology is exhilarating a radical transformation in our society from an industrial economy to an information economy. Code-driven systems have spread to more than half of the world’s inhabitants in ambient information and connectivity, offering previously unimagined opportunities to them.
Let us understand computation from the very beginning with an electrical computer ENIAC, 1946, being the first electrical and programmable computer that could perform 10 Kilo instructions per second(KIPS) with a memory space of 2 KiloBytes (KB) and occupying a basement of size 50x30 feet. With more than 17,000 vacuum tubes, 70,000…

Before we dive deeper into the paths to Superintelligence, we need to understand what is Superintelligence?
University of Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrom defines Superintelligence as “any intellect that greatly exceeds the cognitive performance of humans in virtually all domains of interest” or we can say that it is a hypothetical agent that possesses intelligence far surpassing that of the brightest and most gifted human minds.
Although, the technological researchers disagree about how likely present-day human intelligence is to be surpassed. Some debate that advances in artificial intelligence(AI) will plausibly result in general reasoning systems that lack human…
We are living in a rapidly changing world, the technologies we are using right now didn’t even introduce a decade ago. The Internet is changing business, education, banking, transportation, and even human relationship. With this ever-changing and growing world of the Internet, we are producing a massive amount of data.
Today, we have more than 4 billion Internet users around the globe and these users produce 2.5 exabytes or 2.5*10¹⁸ bytes of data daily. At the beginning of 2020, we had 40 times more data(bytes) than the number of stars in the observable universe — 44 zettabytes or 44*10²¹ bytes.

We all know that a human brain is a powerful computational tool, but how much powerful? how much powerful computations a human brain can perform? what is more powerful a supercomputer or a human brain? In this article, we are going to explore the true potential of a human brain.
before diving deeper into the article, let us understand the basic structure and organizations of different parts of the human brain.
The human brain is a complex structure of some 100 billion neuron cells and each of these cells is connected to 10,000 of its colleague cells…
Everyone desires a healthy lifestyle and a fit body but do we really put our efforts into achieving and sustaining that body?
We all make our new year resolutions and getting in perfect shape is one of them. We get the membership of the gym, we go a couple of days and then we stop.
Do you know why people quit? Because they don’t get those chisel cut abs that they see on the gym’s wallpapers. And they give up their dreams, their efforts and yes obviously their money!
All we need to understand is that you need to put…
Let’s take the anatomy of the human mind or brain and observe how it works? You will lead to a very fascinating branch of computer science. AI.
In normal terms and words, we can say that the branch which deals with the thinking, solving and differentiating capabilities of a computer machine is called its artificial intelligence (AI).
Now there arises a question, can a computer learn and adapt things as a human brain does?
In short, the answer is “YES”! It can. And for a long answer, take a deep dive into this article!
Now you might be wondering how…
