I’m taking a developer certification for using IBM’s Watson AI, and one of the learning requirements is to understand the basics of artificial neural networks. In order to retain the information better and to understand the underlying processes, I decided to actually create a neural network, with the help of Stephen Welch’s excellent “Neural NetworksContinue reading “What I learned from building a neural network. Hint: the robots are coming!”
See the first post here. The previous post finished with a question. I hope to finish this one with an answer. I asked “how do we know what kind of laws are necessary?” and, “can they be prevented from infringing on an individual’s rights?” Since these questions are so large and encompass thousands of yearsContinue reading “Law & Order: Episode 2”

A small bee colony hanged in the corner of the tiled roof where Matthew lived. He was young, but living alone. His house was small but servedContinue reading “The making of a story”
You have heard of sustainable houses and sustainable living but have you heard of sustainable stories?
When Jesus came to Golgotha, they hanged Him on a tree, They drove great nails through hands and feet, and made a Calvary; They crowned Him with a crown of thorns, red were His wounds and deep, For those were crude and cruel days, and human flesh was cheap. When Jesus came to Birmingham, theyContinue reading “We don’t care anymore”
