The Artificial Intelligence (AI) Challenge

I’ve been on the AI train for quite a while. Sounds like the next thing humans will do but you never know it may end up like the disappointment genetics ended up being despite the promises of 1990s. Google AI recently spanked someone at the game of Go, considering that “someone” is one of the […]

Mum, AI took my job

Recently jobless, I took to trolling the internet for good inspiring stories and I fortunate to bump into a long form on George Hotz inventing a self-driving car. George is of internet fame when he was the first to successfully hack an iPhone and then made a mess of Sony. That’s then. There are many ways to […]

Goodbye Hard drives but I won’t miss you

I just read an article where experts said price of SSD will continue to fall. Sincerely that’s the most stupid statement I have read in months. It’s like saying the sun will rise tomorrow morning. SSD, which is an acronym for Solid State Drive, is basically a bigger USB drive shoehorned into the size of […]

WhatsApp will eat MTN’s dinner

I visited WhatsApp, a close friend, last weekend and I saw him preparing for a large party but the interesting bit’s that he’s gonna serve MTN’s dinner to his other many friends. Ok, that’s some unwitty joke but hey, I hope you caught the drift. Some events over the last few months have shown me […]

Crispr is the new Little Boy

You’ve probably never heard of Crispr but then who has? I bet you are creepier than a centipede that killed a snake if you ‘ve. I was trolling some biology news of recent when I bumped into an interesting story about gene editing. By the way, I’m curious about genetics. I once did genetic algorithm in […]

Short scalpel cut to immortality

I’m assured of immortality Ok, if you think my religious inclination has changed, maybe not that fast but then why die, hoping for heaven when I can simply stroll over to the General Hospital Ikeja and get a body swap? And when I have used that up, I can come back for another as long […]

The end of the world is holographic and unreal

Ok, I’m an armchair futurist but I’m not ashamed of that at all. How could one be ashamed of the progress Microsoft has with HoloLens? That sh*t simply blows the mind away! Yeah, my mind got blown with the scary realities of VR and I haven’t been able to find the pieces since. In a nutshell, HoloLens turns […]

The real independence is from PHCN

October 1 is regarded as our national independence day although I’m not so sure if we are really free. The British may have gone but PHCN is still around, in some transformed way. I was reading about the latest upset planned by Elon Musk and I had a good smile. Today, my day is made. […]
