P vs NP, One of the Unanswered Problems in Computer Science
P vs NP is considered one of the deepest unanswered problems in computer science. I’m going to show you what it is, and how it relates seemingly unrelated problems such as protein folding and making crossword puzzles and that their relationship is a lot like Sudoku. P vs NP is one of the 7 millennium problems set out by the...

The Emergence of Big Data Analytics in Technology Today
In this article, Ramel discusses how students from MIT built a super computer that will “take the human guesswork out of Big Data analytics.” The computer is able to find hidden patterns in data sets that would normally take human intuition to be able to figure out. After finding the patterns, the machine goes even further...
The Impact of John Von Neumann in the World of Computers
During the design and building of the ENIAC computer system, specifically in 1945 (Englander, 2014, p. 27), a consultant named John von Neumann had come up with a much more efficient and useful architectural design. With the ENIAC design, a series of wires, panels, and toggle switches allowed for the configuration of progra...
A Comparison of the CMD of NGC-7243 and the CMD of M67
It is immediately apparent that the CMD of NGC-7243 both has far more data than the CMD of M67, and is also less useful. While there is a slight suggestion of a Main Sequence Branch as the data gradually moves up and towards the left, it is only a suggestion of one. The stars have too wide a range of color index, and too sm...
