Remembering that I've already received my digital copy of IEEE Spectrum for the month of June, I decided to start reading. The theme I confess, got my eyes peeled on the articles and engaged me with enthusiasm and excitement. After the last page, I reclined on my chair eyes closed, my consciousness in a deep state of pensive contemplation and repose.

The topics covered almost every aspect one must be enlightened on to understand the challenges the engineering community is currently faced with when it comes to artificial intelligence. From the essential details of which part of the brain deep learning is concerned with (i.e. the neocortex) to the circuit configuration that mimics the neurons and synapse action (see below), the authors covered them all.




But there is one question that still remains open for heavy debate - are we ready?


Honestly, I myself feel that there were some advancements i…

Developing Lexical Resource for Engineering Applications [Useful Vocabulary for Engineers with Examples]

Face it. In delineating technical details of a particular situation or just venting out emotions of jubilation or frustration, effective expression won't be realized without a vast lexical resource under your belt. Ergo, this post aims to address any may-hap weakness or fallibility of the reader in this area. Hopefully, he/she could pick up an unfamiliar word or two below.



1.) Wanton (adj.) could mean lewd or bawdy; merciless or inhumane; being without check or limitation
Examples: 
"While waiting for the Analog FastSpice Simulation to finish, Bob seethed some scrumptious Wanton noodles on scalding-hot water."
"They happened on pirated floating licenses from Cadence online, so now they all wanton."
"Accidentally opening the feedback loop, the VCO was driven to wanton oscillation."


2.) Servile (adj.) meanly or cravenly submissive
Examples:
"She managed to turn all her stubborn male employees servile after snapping the soldering iron in half with …
