There are a lot of answers to this question, but why? Well, because it depends on who you ask. People are raised and taught in certain cultures, and this can influence their perception on almost everything around them, many times without them knowing that for others, some things might be different.

We tend to form models and categories that we think are universal, but are they? If you care to take a trip to another country and you venture on a shopping spree, for example, you might find yourself not being understood when it comes to some shades of colours. …

Our brain can easily be described as the organ inside the head that controls thought, memory, feelings, and activity. Scientists have been recording brain activity for decades now and have been trying to understand how the brain can act like this incredible command center.

As mentioned before, the question here is how does the brain control our bodies? The answer is quite a complex one and you can find out more about it here, but long story short the brain is part of the nervous system which is responsible for controlling and regulating bodily functions and activity. …

The word serverless became a hot topic in the world of Computer Programming. You might have heard the word Serverless a couple of times, either by going to conferences or by talking with other people who work in the digital development industry.

What will we learn today?

  • When to use serverless functions
  • How to create a data processing pipeline
  • How to use Google Cloud technologies in order to process data

We chose to use Google as our cloud provider, although everything presented in this article can be achieved using other cloud providers like Amazon, Azure and so on. …

Our organs are made of tissues that are made of different types of cells. A brief knowledge of how cells work would be useful for a better understanding of how some of the following technologies work. Genes are part of the cell, more specifically, they store the hereditary information and form the genome. In other words, different genes give one’s body different characteristics like gender, eye color, skin color and so on.

One can say that the cell is the most basic component of the body. The life of the cell is a simple one, it is created, it fulfills its purpose and then dies and gets eliminated. Some of the cells face changes in their genome, also called mutations. These changes can be anything from missing genes to added or copied ones. When this happens, the cell starts dividing abnormally and does not fulfill its purpose anymore. If it is not eliminated, it forms tumors. …

Vision — the ability to think about or plan the future with imagination or wisdom. Or at least that’s what the dictionary says. But what does vision mean, in a digital world that’s faster and faster? When we think of the future, what do we think of?

Some would arguably say the future looks like one (or several) Black Mirror episodes. Others claim the future is already here.

In 2020, NASA will send a life-seeking mission to Mars — and Artificial Intelligence will be guiding the way. At NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, scientists are developing a fleet of autonomous robots to travel 33 million miles in search of life on one of Earth’s closest neighboring planets. …

A fundamental success factor of teams is a three-syllable word: to-ge-ther. The word in itself conveys team spirit and unity. Business organisations are very much alike with sports teams, as there is one common goal and a constant journey that team members are all part of.

A team can only truly shine when the combination of skills and perspectives present in each of the team members is put into light by unity as a defining core value for the team. From having different opinions, different work experience and different takes on a certain topic, a single person’s idea can be made so much better with additional insight. …

The world of IT and software development is definitely one of the most fast-paced environments to be working in. Constant meetings, deadlines, thousands of messages sent weekly in order to complete tasks and to stay on track with a digital world that’s moving at the speed of light — quite literally, in a sense. It can be an incredibly enriching experience but at the same time a very gruesome thing to be doing, depending on how you look at it. …
