Visually Explained: How Can Executives Grasp What Programming Is All About?

Quite often, non-technical executives have difficulties understanding what programming, on a very fundamental level, is all about.

Such as, for example, doing ad-hoc SQL queries on CRM data: "You're the go-to-guy for all things data, and we need the results for the board meeting tomorrow." That's a quite humbling and frustrating experience for…See More

A simple, high-level answer to that question is: "It's all about building systems that do certain things better than humans, with as little intervention by humans as possible." That being said, the simplest way to distinguish between ML and its branch DL is by the…See More

Hence, let's do a thought experiment: If we were to compare human and artificial intelligence, how would we go about it?
