These are tidbits I have learned while working in data science. I share them combined with my curiosities and perspectives. The remarkable success of computer science is partly because of it’s products in communication as illustrated by the internet and mobile apps. Communication of stories, ideas, jokes, messages, needs, is…


Grocery store operation is stressed with the high demand and social distancing.
