Consensus Algorythms

A consensus algorithm is a process in computer science used to achieve agreement on a single data value among distributed processes or systems. Consensus algorithms are designed to achieve reliability in a network involving multiple unreliable nodes. As a result, consensus algorithms must be fault-tolerant. Lets review some of the most popular algos:

PROOF OF WORK (PoW)
A proof of work is a piece of data which is difficult (costly, time-consuming) to produce but easy for others to verify and which satisfies certain requirements. Producing a proof of work can be a random process with low probability so that a lot of trial and error is required on average before a valid proof of work is generated.

Bitcoin uses the Hashcash proof of work system.… Read more...

Building a Structured Financial Newsfeed Using Python, SpaCy and Streamlit – KDnuggets

By Harshit Tyagi, Data Science Instructor | Mentor | YouTuber

One of the very interesting and widely used applications of NLP is Named Entity Recognition(NER).

Getting insights from raw and unstructured data is of vital importance. Uploading a document and getting the important bits of information from it is called information retrieval.

Information retrieval has been a major task/challenge in NLP. And NER(or NEL — Named Entity Linking) is used in several domains(finance, drugs, e-commerce, etc.) for information retrieval purposes.

In this tutorial post, I’ll show you how you can leverage NEL to develop a custom stock market news feed that lists down the buzzing stocks on the internet.

How Proof of Stake Differs From Proof of Work

Bybit is one of the fastest growing cryptocurrency derivatives exchanges, with more than a million registered users.

Privacy and security have always been a ground for debates in the crypto industry. Hence, the foundation of a consensus mechanism in the blockchain is important to sustain the network. Ultimately, these consensuses are used to achieve an agreement on a single data value among an array of distributed processes and cryptocurrencies. So, whenever there’s a system failure, a correcting mechanism is thereby correcting the errors. When comparing Proof of Stake vs Proof of Work side-by-side, the difference is pretty obvious.

Today we are all on the verge of seeing the Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism to revolutionize the existing Proof of Work (PoW).

Exploring BERT Language Framework for NLP Tasks

As artificial intelligence apes the human speech, vision, and mind patterns, the domain of NLP is buzzing with some key developments in place.

NLP is one of the most crucial components for structuring a language-focused AI program, for example, the chatbots which readily assist visitors on the websites and AI-based voice assistants or VAs. NLP as the subset of AI enables machines to understand the language text and interpret the intent behind it by various means. A hoard of other tasks is being added via NLP like sentiment analysis, text classification, text extraction, text summarization, speech recognition, and auto-correction, etc.

However, NLP is being explored for many more tasks. There have been many advancements lately in the field of NLP and also NLU (natural language understanding) which are being applied on many analytics and modern BI platforms.

The Blockchain Domains

– Mining and Forge. PoW vs PoS. Creating a mine.
– Create new cryptos with interesting properties for something specific.
– Securization: make safe the transactions of those who already have coins.
– eCommerce. Facilitate online sales and payment with cryptos.
– P2P Commerce. Facilitate transactions between individuals.
– Trading.

Blockchain for Payments (analysis)

BC payments are different because they rely on no middle men. BTC payments are possible without banks and ANY other institution with complete transparency acroos the globe without worrying about exchange rates.

What are the various opportunities to use the technology
BC for payments can be developed in many forms, but they need to consider:
– Legal aspects: the currency can be a cryptocurrency or a legal tender euros or dollars.
– Public or Private BC: open and permisionless vs closed and with permission. Open source benefits vs Privacy benefits. Communities working on the code vs close collaboration networks. Companies must choose.
– Consensus mechanism to validate transactions. From BTC proof of concept (needed in open BCs) to much lighter and efficient methods like the Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance Mechanism, or PoS.… Read more...

Ethereum vs Bitcoin

The essential difference between ETH and BTC is that in the former you can not only transmit money but also run SC and do DApps. This happens with EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine), and thanks to the native language of ETH, called Solidity, which is used to write smart contracts and DApps. From there, ETH crypto-currency is used to make these apps and intelligent contracts work.

BTC is developing other tools such as RSK, which is the first open platform for intelligent contracts on BTC, and which remunerates BTC miners by allowing them to participate in the SC revolution. If it works, it could make ETH somewhat less relevant.

The RSK project started as a fork of an Ethereum codebase in 2016 and it was developed for 2 years until it was finally launched in 2018.… Read more...
