Quick Intro to Fully Homomorphic Encryption

  • The definition is exactly right - Homomorphic Encryption is simply the encryption scheme where one can combine encrypted ciphertexts and obtain interesting computations on the original plaintext in an encrypted form without knowing the actual encryption key.
  • This basically means that the encrypted ciphertext looks random and doesn’t provide any hint to its original plaintext, therefore ensuring that this scheme is secure against eavesdropping.
  • Namely, this is an instance of Additively Homomorphic Encryption, where one can freely add ciphertexts together and obtain any linear combination of the original plaintexts, in encrypted form.
  • If the HE scheme we choose is only partially homomorphic (for example, additively homomorphic), it means that the only thing we can do to the ciphertexts is to obtain an encrypted linear combination of the plaintexts.

A Potential Data Science Foundation for Math Backgrounds

  • This language is known for being a great general programming language, meaning it can handle everything including data manipulation, visualization, machine learning, and web development.
  • In order to use it in Python for further analysis or to prep it for a machine learning model, SQL has become essential to work with.
  • It will allow you to format your data to make your machine learning model produce optimal results.
  • To properly prep the data for a machine learning model you need to understand what the data has in its raw form.
  • These neural networks allow for heavy-duty computation to produce results that can be better than the models you would learn in the machine learning course you select.
  • The current advancements related to image and text data are thanks to deep learning and its neural network structures.

U.S. Gains COVID-19 Drug Monopoly for Gilead's 31,900% Markup

  • The U.S. government has bought the entire global stock of remdesivir, the first drug licensed in America to treat Covid-19.
  • However, the Trump administration has said hospitals — and by extension Americans — will pay $3,200.
  • That’s right: taxpayers have already paid once for remdesivir, and they’re going to pay again.
  • Developed by California-based Gilead Sciences, tests have indicated that remdesivir may help people recover more quickly from Covid-19.
  • To the extent possible, we want to ensure that any American patient who needs remdesivir can get it.
  • The Trump administration doesn’t really want to ensure that American patients can “get” remdesivir.
  • No, what it really wants is for American patients to pay Gilead a fortune for remdesivir.
  • Worse still, regulatory filings reveal that Gilead received $70.5 million from taxpayers in developing remdesivir.

Is Georgia Tech’s MS Analytics Program Worth It?

  • In late 2017, I started looking at different online masters programs with a heavy quantitative focus.
  • It was Georgia Tech’s recently formed Online Masters of Science in Analytics program (OMSA).
  • The requirements state that you only need at least one college-level course or equivalent knowledge in “Computer programming in Python at the level of Introduction to Computing in Python”.
  • My computer programming background includes several undergraduate courses, a two-week bootcamp at the General Assembly, and some experience on the job; however, I struggled mightily with two of the required classes in the program.
  • The OMSA program administers a Slack network, including specific channels for each class, job postings by students, and more.
  • The diversity of knowledge and experience fosters incredible dialogue and a fantastic, filtered selection of thoughts, links, and notes in data analytics.

WeWork sells Flatiron School to Carrick Capital Partners

  • Today, WeWork is announcing the sale of 100 percent of the equity in Flatiron School to Carrick Capital Partners, an investment firm focused on software-enabled businesses.
  • WeWork acquired Flatiron School, a coding academy that offers ‘intensive and expensive’ technical courses, according to founder and CEO Adam Enbar, in 2017.
  • While the COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily allayed the need for a physical presence, the deal does allow Flatiron School to continue its in-person courses at WeWork locations once it makes sense to return to offices.
  • Enbar said that, among the inbound interest in Flatiron School, Carrick Capital stood out because the firm understood Flatiron’s mission-driven culture of educating and empowering students to go out and build the career they desire.
