    Node.js: JavaScript on the Server

    >> So hello, everybody. I have to say, there’s a lot of people coming here. It looks like Ryan here is very controversial. It’s a pleasure to have him here. He’s actually the author of node.js. Just out of curiosity, how many of you guys have heard about it? Yes, the first time I heard about node.js I said, “What a crazy guy. Why would he try to put JavaScript on a server when everybody is trying to put Java on the client?” But, you know, since then I have seen the light and it’s quite interesting and amazing stuff. So I’m very excited to have him here. So Ryan…

    The Lazy Programmer’s Guide to Secure Computing

    >> SAMUEL: Hi everybody I’m Mike Samuel from the Applied Security team. Today to talk about the Lazy Programmer’s Guide to Secure Computing is Marc Stiegler from HP Research. He’s going to talk about a bunch of techniques to get towards decomposable security and he’s a great person to talk about this because he’s been trying to–and, you know, with a lot of success–get that on to systems as complex as the Windows Operating System as part of the Polaris project. Which you guys should definitely check out if you’re interested in computer security. And so, Marc. >>STIEGLER: Thank you. Of course, the key today is to talk not so…

    Determining Domain of Functions

Now domain is the x’s that a graph can take on. Well, equations makes those graphs. If you want to find domain without the, let’s call it a crutch of a graphing calculator, you need to look at the equation itself. There is really only two problems or issues when you are looking for the domain of an algebraic equation or function. Now unless of course you are talking about trig functions which are a whole different story. That is…

    Quantum Computing Day 1: Introduction to Quantum Computing

    >>NEVEN: Thanks for coming to the first part of the three part TechTalk on quantum computing. The first is about introduction to quantum computing. And actually what I’m trying to do is to take an unusual look at quantum computing. We want to take a look from the vantage point of synthetic intelligence. Essentially a notion I would like to promote is the idea that in order to create artificial intelligence, and by this I mean, tasks like pattern matching, machine learning, has a lot to gain from employing quantum computers. Actually what I would claim is if you were to have a working quantum computer of sufficient size on…
