Around 1891, the first submerged oil wells were drilled from platforms built on piles in the fresh waters of the Grand Lake St. Marys (a.k.a. […]

New Catalyst Made to Increase Hydrogen Production

A way to create hydrogen using a newly created catalyst should make it cheaper and easier this was created by the scientists at the department of energy’s SLAC National accelerator laboratory and Stanford university. They have tested the catalyst for ten weeks and believe that it can withstand the public scrutiny. this catalyst helps break […]

Machine Learning

Machine learning is a subset of artificial intelligence, machine learning algorithms make mathematical models based on data to make decisions and predictions. The adaptability of machine learning makes it useful for tasks when conventional algorithms would not be suitable. There are many types of machine learning some include supervised learning, semi-supervised learning and unsupervised learning. […]
