Hey there! My name is Bryan Dijkhuizen, and I’m a digital content creator and a cat-lover + a coffee addict. I’m a part-time writer, editor, student & software engineer. And in this article, I’d like to give you a better image of me.
To get to know me better I refer to my About me Story.

When I speak to proponents of the European project, I always ask them, “What would someone have to demonstrate, or what should be done, to dissuade you from your beliefs?” The question comes from the Austrian-British philosopher Karl Popper (1902–1994), who saw the ultimate test for a rational, scientific approach in the ability to answer this question. He called that falsification.
Anyone who makes a statement — for example, that European integration is necessary or important — must state what must be demonstrated or done to overturn that statement. …
Machine learning is a form of artificial intelligence (AI) that aims to build systems that can learn from the processed data or use data to perform better. Artificial intelligence is an umbrella term for systems or machines that mimic human intelligence.
Even though machine learning and AI are often mentioned in the same breath, and the terms are sometimes used interchangeably, they don’t mean the same thing.
An important difference is that while machine learning is always under AI, AI is not always under machine learning. Today, machine learning is applied all around us.
When communicating with banks, shopping online, or using social media, machine learning helps our experiences run smoothly and securely. Machine learning and the technology around it are developing rapidly, but we are only just beginning to understand the possibilities they all have to offer. …
Machine Learning is a step in the direction of artificial intelligence (AI). Machine Learning is a program that analyses data and learns to predict the outcome.
The term regression is used when you try to find the relationship between variables. In Machine Learning and statistical modeling, that relationship is used to predict the outcome of future events.
Linear Regression uses the relationship between the data-points to draw a straight line through all of them. This line can be used to predict future values.
Python has methods for finding a relationship between data-points and to draw a line of linear Regression. …
Those who have not read the book will now get to know it because the Ministry of Truth is emerging from social media censorship.
Social media censorship has been bad enough so far. Before the US election, it was largely limited to the censorship of opinions. Those who deviated too far from the mainstream, the reach was shortened, or posts were censored or deleted. In doing so, they relied on arbitrary terms such as “hate speech,” which were nowhere really defined, and there was no way of defending themselves against them.
Even before the US elections, so-called fact-checkers came into fashion, allowing them to decide the truth and what is not, especially in social networks. Alleged untruths — for which the new term “fake news” was invented — were not often deleted, but warned. …
The inauguration of the President of the United States is a solemn event. The recently democratically elected president is then installed. George Washington was the first president to be officially inaugurated in 1798. In 2021 it will be Joe Biden’s turn, who will become the 46th president of the United States.
Inauguration Day, as the day is called in America, is a day full of protocols and ceremonies. The day marks the beginning of a new four-year term for the president. Although it is not an official day off, many Americans attend the ceremony or attend parties organized to mark the inauguration. …
Pieter Herman Omtzigt ( The Hague, January 8, 1974 ) is a Dutch politician. He has been a member of the House of Representatives of the States-General on behalf of the Christian Democratic Appeal (CDA) since 2003, with a short break in 2010. In parliament, Omtzigt is involved in, among other things, pensions, taxes, the new health care system, renewal of social security, and foreign affairs.
Omtzigt was born in 1974 as one of the twins. At the age of four, he moved with his father, mother, and two brothers to Borne, where he grew up. He completed the gymnasium at the RK Lyceum De Grundel in Hengelo. From 1992 to 1996, he studied economics and statistics at the University of Exeter in England and for an exchange year at the Libera Università Internazionale Degli Studi Sociali Guido Carli (LUISS) in Rome, Italy. …
Admiral and naval hero Michiel de Ruyter (1607–1676), also known as ‘Bestevaer’ (grandfather), is one of the most famous people in the Netherlands’ national history. In the seventeenth century, he distinguished himself at sea with several special victories. The Journey to Chatham (June 1667) was one of De Ruyter’s most special operations: he managed to deal a heavy blow to the English in the lion's den.
Michiel de Ruyter’s image is not unambiguous. Some consider him, just like Jan Pieterszoon Coen (1587–1629), as a colonial villain who must disappear from the history books. Others see De Ruyter as a maritime leader, a naval hero with unparalleled performance in naval battles. I join the latter because it can be established objectively that De Ruyter was a maritime celebrity and also because I am convinced that we should understand historical figures within their temporal context. …
Before you build your own cryptocurrency or blockchain, you’ll need to understand Python and Blockchain’s fundamentals. For a good explanation of Blockchain, I recommend you to visit Investopedia.com — What is Blockchain?
This site will give you a basic but good understanding of what a Blockchain actually is.

Make sure you have the most recent version of Python installed.
Create a new Python file. I’ll call it
app.py. To get started, we should create a
I’ll be referring to code from dzone.com: …
Due to its rise in popularity, I thought it would be a good idea to write an article about the language fundamentals of Python. If you’re starting with Python and wondering why you might choose to learn this language, keep in mind that it is cross-platform, has a simple syntax, and is similar to English. In addition to this, Python is a high-level programming language, so a lot of work is done with a small code.
Sold on Python and excited to progress? Great, let’s dive in.
Create a file called app.py and add the following simple code:
This is the most simple program — as you can see, there is no semicolon. …
