Goldbach’s conjecture is one of the oldest and most popular unsolved problems in number theory. Or maybe I should say, in all of mathematics.

It’s a warm summer evening in 18th century Russia (probably). Christian Goldbach is writing a letter to Leonhard Euler, proposing a mathematical conjecture. After more than two centuries, no mathematicians could prove or disprove the conjecture, and it remains unsolved.

On 7 June 1742, the German mathematician Christian Goldbach wrote…

Lothar Collatz, two years after receiving his doctorate, introduced the idea of a conjecture in 1937. Mathematicians still couldn’t solve it.

“Mathematics is not yet ripe enough for such questions”

That’s what mathematician Paul Erdos said about the simple conjecture we are going to talk about. But first, let’s start from the beginning.

Guess a positive number. Any positive number. Now follow these two simple rules to apply to that number.

Different people might have different opinions, but I’m a big fan of Terence Tao, who is probably the greatest mathematician of this decade for me.

When I was 20, I was in the third year of my graduation in computer science and struggled with differentiations and integrations. Now think of a 20-year-old guy who has a Ph.D. in mathematics from Princeton University, who gets appointed as a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles…

Train a model with your dataset to detect plagiarisms in texts



Tensorflow is a very powerful library when it comes to building neural networks with a whole range of different parameters. A neural network is made of an input layer, hidden layers and an output layer. Here’s a diagram generated with the help of to help you understand it better.

Client-server means one or multiple clients initiating requests for services and servers providing that function or service. It can be used as a medium to allow interactions between different machines through sharing data or files. The relationship between cooperating programs in an application can be established with a client-server.


About a century ago, we thought that he was wrong! But now…

SPOILER: It’s not an article on atoms.

It’s a warm summer evening in ancient Greece. Suddenly a crazy philosopher friend of yours tells you something even crazier!

He tells you that all matter is made up of tiny, indivisible particles. Of course, you don’t believe him. …
