Ignasi 'Iggy' Bosch

I'm passionate about programming, I simply love it. I like to learn and this industry brings to me the opportunity to discover new amazing stuff almost every single day. I worked with several different technologies. Scala, Python, PHP, Java are some of the languages I dealt with. Cassandra, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL some databases I used.

 The Josephus Problem - Numberphile

In computer science and mathematics, the Josephus problem is a theoretical problem related to a certain counting-out game. People are standing in a circle waiting to be executed. Counting begins at a specified point in the circle and proceeds around the circle in a specified direction.

 Shoucheng Zhang: "Quantum Computing, AI and Blockchain: The Future of IT" | Talks at Google

Prof. Shoucheng Zhang discusses three pillars of information technology: quantum computing, AI and blockchain. He presents the fundamentals of crypto-economic science, and answers questions such as: What is the intrinsic value of a medium of exchange? What is the value of consensus and how does it emerge? How can math be used to create distributed self-organizing consensus networks to create a data-marketplace for AI and machine learning? Prof. Zhang is the JG Jackson and CJ Wood professor of physics at Stanford University. He is a member of the US National Academy of Science, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a foreign member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He discovered a new state of matter called topological insulator in which electrons can conduct along the edge without dissipation, enabling a new generation of electronic devices with much lower power consumption. For this ground breaking work he received numerous international awards, including the Buckley Prize, the Dirac Medal and Prize, the Europhysics Prize, the Physics Frontiers Prize and the Benjamin Franklin Medal. He is also the founding chairman of DHVC venture capital fund, which invests in AI, blockchain, mobile internet, big data, AR/VR, genomics and precision medicine, sharing economy and robotics.

 Elliptic Curve Cryptography Tutorial - Understanding ECC through the Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange

Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is a type of public key cryptography that relies on the math of both elliptic curves as well as number theory. This technique can be used to create smaller, faster, and more efficient cryptographic keys. In this Elliptic Curve Cryptography tutorial, we build off of the Diffie-Hellman encryption scheme and show how we can change the Diffie-Hellman procedure with elliptic curve equations.

 Pedro Domingos: "The Master Algorithm" | Talks at Google

Machine learning is the automation of discovery, and it is responsible for making our smartphones work, helping Netflix suggest movies for us to watch, and getting presidents elected. But there is a push to use machine learning to do even more—to cure cancer and AIDS and possibly solve every problem humanity has. Domingos is at the very forefront of the search for the Master Algorithm, a universal learner capable of deriving all knowledge—past, present and future—from data. In this book, he lifts the veil on the usually secretive machine learning industry and details the quest for the Master Algorithm, along with the revolutionary implications such a discovery will have on our society. Pedro Domingos is a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, and he is the cofounder of the International Machine Learning Society.
