Mumbai youth got a job of 1.2 crores at Google office in London

It is true that Abdullah Khan (21) could not clear the IIT entrance, but he has made an offer that many IITians would envy.

Earlier this week, Khan got a job at the Google office in London, for a package of 1.2 crore rupees.

The average salary offered to a graduate of a non-IIT engineering college in the city is around Rs 4 lakh per anum. Khan, a student at Shree LR Tiwari Engineering College, Mira Road, was called for a Google interview based on his profile on a site that hosts competitive programming challenges.

 

After some online interviews, earlier this month Khan was asked to show up for the final screening at Google’s office in London.

His six-figure package includes the base salary of Rs 54.5 lakh (£ 60,000) per year, a bonus of 15 per cent and stock options worth Rs 58.9 lakh ($ 85,000) for four years.

Khan, who is pursuing his last year BE (Computer Science), will join the reliability engineering team at Google’s site in September.

An email from a Google official in November last year mentioned that they had seen Khan’s profile on the programming site and said they were looking for people for locations across Europe.

Khan said that he did not expect such an offer when he participated in competitions on that site.

“I used to participate as it was fun. I did not even know that firms check programmers’ profiles on such sites. I showed the email to my friend who knew someone who had received such an email in the past. I am looking forward to joining their team. It will be an amazing learning experience for me,” said Khan. The coding enthusiast did his education in Saudi Arabia and moved to Mumbai only after Class XII.

Artificial intelligence may help develop clean, limitless fusion energy

Artificial intelligence (AI) may help develop safe, clean and virtually limitless fusion energy for generating electricity, scientists say.

A team, including researchers from Princeton University and Harvard University, are applying deep learning to forecast sudden disruptions that can halt fusion reactions and damage the doughnut-shaped tokamaks or apparatus that house the reactions.

Deep learning is a powerful new version of the machine learning form of AI, according to the findings published in the journal Nature magazine.

 

“This research opens a promising new chapter in the effort to bring unlimited energy to Earth,” Steven Cowley, director of US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL).

“Artificial intelligence is exploding across the sciences and now it’s beginning to contribute to the worldwide quest for fusion power,” Cowley said in a statement.

Fusion, which drives the Sun and stars, is the fusing of light elements in the form of plasma — the hot, charged state of matter composed of free electrons and atomic nuclei — that generates energy.

Scientists are seeking to replicate fusion on Earth for an abundant supply of power for the production of electricity.

“Artificial intelligence is the most intriguing area of scientific growth right now, and to marry it to fusion science is very exciting,” said William Tang, a principal research physicist at PPPL.

“We have accelerated the ability to predict with high accuracy the most dangerous challenge to clean fusion energy,” Tang said.

Unlike traditional software, which carries out prescribed instructions, deep learning learns from its mistakes.

Accomplishing this seeming magic are neural networks, layers of interconnected nodes — mathematical algorithms — that are “parameterised,” or weighted by the programme to shape the desired output.

For any given input the nodes seek to produce a specified output, such as correct identification of a face or accurate forecasts of a disruption.

Training kicks in when a node fails to achieve this task: the weights automatically adjust themselves for fresh data until the correct output is obtained.
