New world of tech calls for 'learning by doing' 16.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Ever wonder how a car can drive itself, without a human at the controls; how your phone can "understand" your spoken question and respond to you; what makes it possible for spam mails to be filtered out of your inbox? Thanks to our ability to use the power of data and techniques to analyse them, we are today capable of not only the above tasks, but also to provide better healthcare to citizens, help people organise their lives more reliably, and accomplish many tasks that were only in the realm of science fiction only a few years ago. Today, applications based on these capabilities pervade every walk of life and new applications are being invented everyday. Techniques used in data science, the science of discovering insights in data, have been known for many centuries. The new twist is the ability to generate, store and process huge amounts of data cheaply and efficiently. In addition, much of the mathematics and statistics involved was the exclusive domain of specialists, but recent developments in ...

Gene editing for 'designer babies'? 14.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Now that science is a big step closer to being able to fiddle with the genes of a human embryo, is it time to panic? Could embryo editing spiral out of control, allowing parents to custom-order a baby with Lin-Manuel Miranda's imagination or Usain Bolt's speed? News that an international team of scientists in Oregon, USA had successfully modified the DNA of human embryos has renewed apprehensions that babies will one day be "designed." But there are good reasons to think that these fears are closer to science fiction than they are to science. Here is what the researchers did: repair a single gene mutation on a single gene, a defect known to cause — by its lonesome — a serious, sometimes fatal, heart disease. Here is what science is highly unlikely to be able to do: genetically predestine a child's Ivy League acceptance letter or front-load a kid with Stephen Colbert's one-liners. That's because none of those talents arise from a single gene mutation, or even from an easily identifiable number ...

Judging books by their names: A trip through tantalising titles (Column: Bookends) 13.8.2017 Cinema-Showbiz
"Conquering kings their titles take.." begins a Christian hymn, but what about those of books that demand you take a second look at them for something inviting, intriguing, or even incongruous in their name. While an indirect, rather fanciful title is now the norm, even among them, some have an edge in captivating readers.
