Quantum Computing Topics for 06/24/2017

  • “I will discuss classical and quantum algorithms for simulation of quantum impurity models. Such models describe a bath of free fermions coupled to a small interacting subsystem called an impurity. Hamiltonians of this form were famously studied by Anderson, Kondo, Wilson and others in 1960s.”

General Reading for 06/15/2017

  • “You gasp with each new report on Uber’s toxicity. On Tuesday, there was the harassment and discrimination documented in an endless list of internal recommendations by Eric H. Holder Jr., the former attorney general, who was hired to peer into Uber’s ugly depths. Then, while presenting the report to employees, an Uber board member made a sexist remark. (He later resigned.) All of it comes after a parade of escalating scandals that seem more fitting at a company run by Tony Soprano than by nerds in San Francisco.”

Artificial Intelligence / AI Reading for 06/15/2017

  • “Like many AI music experiments, the music Shimon is playing is generated by a method called deep learning. This essentially means mining a large amount of information (in this case, a dataset of some 5,000 songs) and looking for common patterns in the music. For example, if you have a sequence of notes F, G, A, what note will follow next? Deep learning will give you a good answer.”

  • “We don’t like holding the mango to remove the skin since the fruit becomes slippery. We also don’t like cutting the flesh from either side of the pit and then using a spoon to scoop it from the skin; it won’t work if the mango is even slightly underripe. Here’s the method we prefer.”
