Nowadays modern technology is everywhere. There is no doubt that it has made our lives easier. People also have been using technology for benefiting themselves in different ways. However, technologies were not only born to provide goodness to humans. For example, deepfakes can cause serious problems and misunderstandings in society.
What is a Deepfake?
This word comes from a combination of “fake” and “deep learning”. Deep learning is a kind of algorithm called “neural networks” that learns to replicate patterns by going through large data sets. With computing prowess created with machine learning, deepfake can create a convincing fake photo, audio https://www.forbes.com/sites/jessedamiani/2019/09/03/a-voice-deepfake-was-used-to-scam-a-ceo-out-of-243000/?sh=27bbe0e42241 or video depicting individuals doing things they did not do with strong potential to deceive the video’s audience. …
Have you ever wished you’ve been prepared in the morning if it’s going to rain later in the day? This way, you wouldn’t forget to take your umbrella to work. The weather forecast is what you need. But we’re all humans, and sometimes you forget to look at it, especially during a busy morning.
This post will show you how to create a Python script to get the weather forecast. Specifically, it will generate the notification to let you know if it’s going to rain today. We will get the weather forecast for the day from Open Weather, send a notification to the Telegram messenger, and then schedule the code to run every day at 7.00 in the morning using Seamless Cloud. The script is less than 20 lines of code, so even if you don’t know Python — you will be able to implement it yourself. …
Now it’s possible to view the code of the Job right in the Seamless Cloud web UI. If you navigate to the Job screen — you’ll notice there is a new button called “Show Code”.
If you click it, well, you’ll see the code.
The world is slowly recovering from the pandemic. The borders are opening. You start thinking about traveling to another country. However, you don’t want to rush into the country where COVID cases are still growing and contribute to spreading the virus.
I’ve got an oddly satisfying feeling when I think of rewriting code from scratch. It’s time to make things right. I can finally fix all those problems with the architecture all at once. I will no longer suffer from previous mistakes. It feels so good!
All engineers must have done that at least once in their career. In many cases, it is inefficient if you think about the time you spent rewriting the code and the number of new bugs you created and old bugs reintroduced. …
We all know about Moor’s law. Computational power grows exponentially as well as opportunities to write software. The share of the human population who knows programming grows as well, but not nearly as fast. It is a problem. Why do I think so? Let’s explore.
Knowledge, as I use the term, is the information that humanity has recorded in a medium and improved over time.
This is the best definition I could find, and it fits the purpose of this article very well. Let’s study it piece by piece.
“information” — there is a ton of information in the world, but not all of it we consider knowledge. But knowledge is definitely some sort of information. …
In this post, you will learn how to use Python to automate the routine work of searching for hotels on booking.com. We will help you get the best deal for your next vacation. I’ve recently created this script to help pick the best option for my summer trip, so I decided to share it with the community.
This article is useful for you in case:
The script we’re going to write works best if it runs on schedule automatically without you triggering it manually. There are multiple options to achieve it (you can set up a server and create a cron job, for example). I recommend using seamlesscloud.io, a tool I’m developing right now, and it’s built specifically for this purpose. …
Welcome to the third part of the series of posts where I will guide you through the steps for creating a modern web application in Python and deploying it to the cloud using Elastic Beanstalk. At the end of this article, you will have the infrastructure put into Terraform code.
Welcome to the second part of the series of posts where I will guide you through the steps for creating a modern web application in Python and deploy to the cloud using Elastic Beanstalk. At the end of this article, you will have automated deployment of your application to AWS Elastic Beanstalk using Github Actions.
Welcome to the first part of the series of posts where I will guide you through the steps for creating a modern web application in Python and deploying it to the cloud using Elastic Beanstalk. By the end of this article, you will have a “Hello World” application available on the internet.
You’ll find this series interesting if you want to create an app in Python that other people on the internet can use. This is actually not as trivial as it may seem. There is a lot of stuff you need to do. If you’ve never deployed a production-grade web application, I strongly suggest you read this series in the consecutive order starting with this post. …
