  10. Naive Bayesian classifier explained
  11. Jobs that are threatened by AI:

  15. Marvin Minsky's legacy
  16. 40 ways researchers achieved impact with their research!40-practical-tips-for-achieving-impact-told-to-us-by-researchers-and-those-they-worked-with-to-achieve-impact/hmlp3/569faeba0cf2bfd5cce91b1b
