Can you tell us the difference between computational biology and computational linguistics?
While they sound similar, they are two very different themes. Computational biology is a study of the use of computer algorithms and quantitative models to predict the incidence of a particular disease. Computational linguistics includes psychology, language, and computer science to study computer algorithms to analyze and predict how individuals converse and speech patterns.
Should students start considering Ai, ML, and IoT so early?
Yes, Ai and ML are already being used in our daily life in the form of text correction and prediction in emails, mobile messages, while IoT is available on smart devices like Philip’s Hue, Havell’s smart geysers. In the future, they would use more, focusing on the automation of common household appliances.
Isn’t fintech related to finance? How can a technology student enter the financial sector?
