Also part of the 69th Street Transfer Bridge, I thought this was a perfect example of urban decay. This is the statue on the southwest corner of the park, in Columbus Circle, where we used to live.

Rediscovering Math Through Machine Learning

There are two major, obvious, technology trends of interest to me that are being used to solve business problems today: blockchain and machine learning. The promise of AI has tantalized computer scientists and the general public for a long time, with general human intelligence out of grasp even still, however, modern advances in approaches to implementing machine learning algorithms coupled with a dramatic growth in computational capacity have yielded powerful tools to address discrete problem domains.
