Check out the following paper unveiled last night in ArXiv:
An Open-Source, Industrial-Strength Optimizing Compiler for Quantum Programs, by Robert S. Smith, Eric C. Peterson, Mark G. Skilbeck, Erik J. Davis.
This is an exciting development for me since I have been a proponent and practitioner of the art of quantum compilers for a long time.
The new "optimized quantum compiler" by Rigetti is a computer program that tackles the problem of… Continue

#FlattenTheCurve. #StayHome. #QuarantineLife. They’ve all been trending, and it seems like everybody knows that it’s time to stay at home, indoors, and as far apart (physically) as possible. We’re in the midst of a global pandemic, the worst we’ve seen in a century, yet we still see people out and about, on the streets, congregating in large groups, against the unambiguous advice of experts and health professionals.…

Little Blue Pearl - named after our planet - has kept me occupied for several days during my 14-day Coronavirus isolation. It is fully functional although I suppose it needs a makeover in terms of its appearance. Like a child after summer break, this is going to be my show-and-tell. LBP is designed to… Continue

When the coronavirus broke out in the Wuhan province of China in December 2019, Taiwan was immediately in harm’s way. Taiwan is less than 100 miles from the China mainland, and as recently as January there were a dozen roundtrip flights between Wuhan and Taipei every week. Yet as of March 19, Taiwan has only 108 cases of the coronavirus and one death. Why?
Taiwan used the data from 2003 SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) epidemic that infected over… Continue

Virtues should be digitized. As we speed toward reliance on machines to process more and more information and provide cognitive support for all types of decision-making, we must consider ways to imbue automated processes, data machinations and recommender systems with a sense of some of the finest human virtues.
We are at the crossroads of a moral… Continue

In a previous blog post, I created a flow chart showing how to choose a statistical test from a dozen different tests. While researching the article, I came across a short and sweet version which only includes four of the more basic tests:… Continue

There are dozens of different hypothesis tests, so choosing one can be a little overwhelming. The good news is that one of the more popular tests will usually do the trick--unless you have unusual data or are working within very specific guidelines (i.e. in medical research). The following picture shows several tests for a single population, and what… Continue

Taken from pangolins, it has been found that the virus cause of COVID-19 is a “curse of the pangolin”.
The mammal Pangolin is hunted as game meat for both medicinal purposes and food consumption.
In addition, seven out of eight species of pangolins are threatened with extinction within the next generation. They have been a valuable commodity for… Continue

At first glance, the Lognormal, Weibull, and Gamma distributions distributions look quite similar to each other. Selecting between the three models is "quite difficult" (Siswadi & Quesenberry) and the problem of testing which distribution is the best fit for data has been studied by a multitude of researchers.
If all the models fit the data fairly… Continue

We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to address one of modern society’s biggest challenges – the choice between healthcare or the economy. For the past several decades, we have treated this as an “either or” choice between one or the other; that to improve the economy we must reduce healthcare spending or to improve healthcare we must sacrifice the economy. To that sort of thinking I say BULL!
The coronavirus COVID-19 situation is showing us a very… Continue

Edge computing moves workloads from centralized locations to remote locations and it can provide faster response from AI applications. Edge computing devices are getting deployed increasingly for monitoring and control of real world processes like people tracking, vehicle recognition, pollution monitoring etc. The data collected at the devices gets transported to centralized cloud servers over data pipelines and are used to train machine learning models. Training models needs lot… Continue

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused organizations to find different ways to maintain their operations amid calls for increased social distance. In some cases, employees have been asked to work from home in order to reduce the amount of social interaction in the workplace. Due to this emerging distance between these workers and their employers, I suggest that quantitative reduction will become more likely: for these employees, performance will be increasingly unrelated to their social presence… Continue
