The simple database queries are not able to get the detailed data to make predictions and statistical analysis. That is why data mining field came into great progress. There are various data mining forms which enable and support different analysis in order to support detection of patterns in huge data sets. For eg, climate change, fraud detection, customer buying behaviour, medical predictions, intrusion detection are a few examples.

A lawsuit is a situation where an individual or an organization takes a dispute to court for due attention and a legal decision. What one of the ongoing trials that has gained much attention and I have picked for my discussion post is the one involving Alphabet and Uber. On 23 February 2017, Alphabet filed a lawsuit against Uber over the theft of its trade secrets of Waymo's self-driving car system by its former engineer, Anthony Levandowski. Waymo is an automated car development company owned by Google's parent company Alphabet, Inc. The final verdict is expected to be out on 3 May 2017 where the judge would decide if Uber could continue to use Alphabet's technology or not.

I agree they Google and Uber have a complex history, which lately has turned quite sour as they have ended up against each other at the court.
About the verdict for Levandowski, there are two things to consider, firstly he stole those documents and secondly Uber didn’t dispute this theft. Uber said that those documents were never used or uploaded to it's servers. Therefore, if proved, he should be strictly punished or fined if not jailed. According to the US law for theft of trade secrets it is a crime with punishment of up to 10 years in the jail.

Rossignol (2017) states "The question before the Supreme Court was how to calculate the amount Samsung should pay for their copying. Our case has always been about Samsung’s blatant copying of our ideas, and that was never in dispute. We will continue to protect the years of hard work that has made iPhone the world’s most innovative and beloved product. We remain optimistic that the lower courts will again send a powerful signal that stealing isn’t right". Read more about Apple vs Samsung lawsuit here!Academic Writing
I was in school when I got the first opportunity to use a computer. In the early 90s, computers were not very common in the households in Pakistan. All the interactions I had with the computer was at the school learning the BASIC programming language, and at that time it never fascinated me. I graduated from the school in 1998 and started studying maths and economics. I recall, my best friend had moved to the US, and the usage of the email was getting familiar. Almost all my friends had a desktop computer. I started to develop an interest in computers and quick sending and receiving of emails amazed me.

Pakistan is still working its way towards consolidating the establishment of Intellectual property rights. It is deeply saddening to realize that Pakistan is known to be the top manufacturer and exporter of pirated industry software, publications, and digital content. The violations in the IPR Laws are persistent in Pakistan and have caused severe financial losses in the international trade market as well. As a former resident of Pakistan, I can safely say that most people don't value the intellectual rights of others. A good example is the popularity of the cable TV system in Pakistan. It has been there for over two decades now. You get a £20 per month connection from the cable company and enjoy the 24/7 full access to 100 plus local and international channels on the TV. If you compare the same scenario of TV channel subscription in the UK, we must pay the high prices to enjoy these facilities.

Hi there everyone! It is Ayesha Asghar from London, UK. Briefly about me: I am a computer science graduate.
I was in school when I got the first opportunity to use a computer. In the early 90s, computers were not very common in the households in Pakistan. All the interactions I had with the computer was at the school learning the BASIC programming language, and at that time it never fascinated me. I graduated from the school in 1998 and started studying maths and economics. I recall, my best friend had moved to the US, and the usage of the email was getting familiar. Almost all my friends had a desktop computer. I started to develop an interest in computers and quick sending and receiving of emails amazed me. I finally bought my desktop. It was very exciting, and I started to use it for emailing my best friend. I also learned to type efficiently in MS Word. And for all my writing activities I became more dependent on the computer, and the usage of pen/paper notebooks decreased in my life. The exchange of notes and information with my friends too became so accessible with just one click to email.
With the passage of time, this interest transformed into an ambition to become a computer engineer. In 2001, I enrolled for BS in computer sciences. Now I was using my desktop for different tasks. I learned and got accustomed with new programming languages, software, and tools. I bought a digital camera a few years later, the entire concepts of instant pictures and sharing them right away was unbelievable. I don't even remember the last time I got my photos printed. But I do remember how irritating was the process of scanning pictures to share them online.
It was thrilling how my usage of the computer had changed from leisure to studies. After graduating, I bought my first laptop and enjoyed the portability. Over the years, my comfort with using computers enhanced. I started from where I didn’t even know how to operate my desktop computer and today have reached a point where I know and understand that what's inside and how it works.
I moved to London in 2009 and bought my first smartphone, an iPhone. My dependency on laptop lessened over the years for essential activities like checking emails, browsing, messaging, video calling, taking & sharing photos, reading, mobile banking, etc. The only time I used my laptop is to do academic work. Today I don't have to make hand-written notes as applications like Evernote are there. I don't need to put tags on my fridge for reminders as my calendar app on iPhone does the needful. Using my smartphone, I can order food for delivery or a taxi, or I can also take pictures and share them instantly. I can even book flights or hotels sitting at home using the computer. In short, the ease and convenience that computers have introduced into my life have become a way of living. Today, I see smartphones and computers are an essential part of everyone's life in my community and has changed the way we work, play and live.
I have now enrolled for the MSc, and I am using my laptop a lot more once again especially because it is a demanding degree program. Computers have totally changed my life and I am studying at my pace and comfort level. It has become a definite part of my life.
I would conclude my post on one of my favourite quote by Adam Osborne, "The future lies in designing and selling computers that people don't realize are computers at all."
