In this article, we will see how Truffle can assist in creating decentralized applications. Generally speaking, decentralized applications or dApps are chunks of code that can run on a blockchain. A blockchain is a decentralized linked list. Applications existing along the blockchain should not crash.
The reason for this is, as of September 19, 2019, the Ethereum network was comprised of 8,933 nodes. And at least half of those nodes would have to go down to pose any real threat to our dApp. Decentralized applications are, therefore, very futuristic and interesting.
Blockchains are complex distributed systems with elliptical curves, hashing…
Cogito, Ergo Sum (referred to as “Cogito” hereafter) is a popular philosophy which has been connected to René Descartes. Scholars have debated over the exact source of this notion from within the writing of René Descartes. Researchers have connected “je pense, donc je suis” from Discourse of Methods to the Cogito. This notion reads as seen in the image below.
Another notion scholars have connected to the Cogito is, “Ac proinde haec cognitio, ego cogito, ergo sum”, which can be seen written in Principia Philosophiae. This notion completely reads as seen in the image below.
In bitcoin mining, blocks, private keys, and public keys there can be found some connection to SHA256 mentioned somewhere. This makes SHA256 interesting to investigate. In this article we are going to focus on SHA256. We will dive into the code of SHA256, while also investigating the semantics of the cryptographic hash function. We will also break SHA256 down to its basic components and do some machine learning for fun. The purpose of this article is to give a general feel of SHA256, which is an important cryptographic hash function in bitcoin and of the internet in general.
In this article, we will walk through training a model to recognise and punctuate the stream of consciousness in Penelope. Penelope forms a part of Ulysses, a well-renowned body of work by the Irish writer James Joyce. In this article, we are going to take a close look at Penelope, a soliloquy-styled writing by James Joyce. Penelope can be very difficult to read.
