Green is the Warmest Color

Recently, Akamai announced the company's plans to expand its sustainability initiatives through an innovative renewable energy procurement strategy.

HTTP/2 Performance Monitoring

This blog post is part of an ongoing series where we discuss a wide range of topics related to HTTP/2 (h2). In today's post, I explore why TTFB (Time to First Byte) may not be the best measure of h2 performance.

Machine Learning - The new bicycle of the mind

Machine Learning in Security

I recently started studying for the GMAT and ran into an interesting passage while taking a diagnostic test - a reading comprehension argument by the philosopher John Searle, who was one of the first philosophers to challenge the idea of artificial intelligence. Searle argued that the human brain is not like a computer processor, and that computers are syntactic (rule based), rather than semantic (meaning based) creatures. The diagnostic test
