Image Processing can be considered one of the trending subcategories of machine learning as it is ubiquitous in today's world. I had been learning certain aspects of the subject years ago using algorithms that were purely based on mathematics rather than what we perceive as machine learning. Although they are two sources eventually telling the same story, their approaches are different. However, today after so many year, I had the pleasure of working in the field again as a result of a discussion in my ANN class.

Meta-heuristics or meta-heuristic algorithms are evolutionary algorithms which are a part of "Soft Computing" and Soft computing itself is a form of AI. But what are these algorithms?

One instance or example of these algorithms is Genetic Algorithm which I've written about previously. Basically these algorithms are designed to search a space, and usually the goal or the objective is an optimum answer. The optimum answer is usually expressed as a form of a minimum value or maximum value.

In terms of solving problems, any thing or guideline that guides towards solving a problem, and not an instance of a problem is called an "Algorithm". Put it this way, any steps you follow in your brain to calculate divisions, is an algorithm, because division is a problem, but say, dividing 21 by 7 or 100 by 30 are problem instances, and the exact steps you follow to solve these problems, are instances, not algorithms.

I know, you might have never heard of it, and yeah, it isn't a thing. But it is about to be. This is something I've been thinking about the entire summer, and I'm gonna start working on it soon.

Basically I have a very strange and unique taste of things when it comes to my major, and the field I've been most interested in since the age of 4, which is computers and Computer Science. For those who don't know, there's a difference between the two while they are connected. I did enjoy things like programming, solving problems and even for a while working with web services and servers, but Computer Science or CS, is far beyond that. Basically the fundamentals of CS has roots within logic and mathematics, and not much calculus, but rather set theory, matrices, algebra and analysis.

Data Mining is an interesting course I took this past semester, and really enjoyed. Today I want to talk about it a little, what it actually is, and how it's done. Basically data mining brings together subjects like machine learning, statistical analysis and basic programming in order to analyze data and obtain information from what is called a data set. A data set can be a spreadsheet, a database, an ASCII file or really any source of data, which is gathered into a single form, which is called a data warehouse.

So I talked earlier about my project, but here are the basics. Basically, we have a 2D map which has some objects inside. They can be either walls, which we cannot run over, hospitals, patients, or the player(the ambulance).

So what our algorithm is supposed to do is basically to order the ambulance to move left, right, up or down, and whether to pick up or drop off a patient. So a patient can only exist, in a 2 dimensional matrix, as follows, based on the location of the ambulance: Upper right, Upper left, Lower Right, Lower Left. So, there can be many ways to reach each patient. First off, we need to locate the patients and add them based on priority to a priority queue and know which patient we need to be going after.

The Pixel Launcher, introduced officially last summer preloaded on the brand new Google Pixel phones. It looked simply amazing. Clean, colorful, heavenly and just beautiful with those round icons. I bet lots of people, including myself thought we could get a hold of it and use it on our devices as soon as a system dump gets out... But unfortunately that was not the case.
