Great article for understanding how neural networks function.

In essence, any given set of data has variety of characteristics based on which we want to classify that data. For example, to determine if a given picture is face of human being, a system should identify all the hidden connections among different pixels that remain invariant across facial pictures of whole of our humanity. Such structures are ultimately mathematical. And neural networks can extract and work with such structures.

A great article which helps understand these concepts using simple examples which gradually become complex.

Probably the most intriguing observation. May be there is link between how the brain is processing information - both while doing algebra and eating corn!

One of great articles analyzing the current trends!

It has so happened that there can be only one dominating interface for any application/service. For Twitter, it is getting updates; for Facebook, it is sharing + interactions. For google, it is search.  

Not that services don't have other aspects. For e.g. in facebook, you do get updates from friends, but it is not as efficient as Twitter. Facebook much used for interactions with friends.  But then, private group interactions was not particularly efficient with facebook, and whatsapp took that slot. And facebook did a good thing buying, but how they will integrate the two? I am not sure if it works out.

And these dominant functionalities set the market share. Once they realize that there is only so much demand for the dominant functionality (like what twitter is realizing now), they end up trying to "migrate" to other product functionalities.

We just have to wait and watch how the future evolves!!

Haha, good fun. My take on WhatsApp:

| IMHO, FB bought WhatsApp mainly to get a handle on this "underground economy" to which they were losing big time.

This is from place called Dhanolti valley, about 30kms from Mussourie. This photo was taken 4 days back, and  It had snowed about 2 weeks prior to that. 

A beautiful view of snow-clad Himalayan mountains are also seen from the place.

Probably the easiest place to reach for snow in India!

Good focus on the question.

Of course, one's highest priority should be to get to the real "I" - the base of consciousness. And then things happen by themselves...

As a householder, think a little bit of money is required. Swami gives a very nice analogy: If the shoe is tight, it pinches, if it's too big, you can't walk in it.

One of my pals says that INR 5C (about a million USD) is good enough to retire. Since i am a firm believer in the end of the world as we know it by 2030 or earlier:

i scaled that down to 40%.
