IBM researchers have successfully mapped out the long-distance network of the brain of the Macaque monkey, which holds significant ramifications for reverse-engineering the brain and creating a network of cognitive computing chips. “We have collated a comprehensive, consistent, concise, coherent, and colossal network spanning the entire brain and grounded in anatomical tracing studies that is [...]
Writing programs for sorting of a given set of numbers is one of the common programming tasks. Various types of sorting techniques like selection sort, inserting sort and quick sort are quite popular. Here C code for Quick sort is being presented. Here, in each iteration the array is subdivided into 2 arrays, and hence [...]
