Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline, and endurance. They get a beautiful heart.
~ Shinichi Suzuki (鈴木鎮一)
Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of music, truth and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, plague, and poetry. Apollo was one of the few gods that the Romans kept the same name.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Terrance Jackson: What is the difference between artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning?
Zachary Lipton: From the crazy way these topics are covered in the media, it can be hard to tell the meanings of the various terms. Often they are compared to each other, e.g. what deep learning can do vs what machine learning can do. The most faithful, simple way to put it is that they have a subset relationship. AI was a field long before people were interested in machine learning. It encompasses the study of how to do, with machines, all things that we think requires something like human intelligence. Of course that makes it a bit of a moving target. Once we know how to do something well, such as playing chess, then we sometimes don’t subsequently view it as a critical piece of AI.

Terrance Jackson: What does a literary agent do?
Dawn Michelle Hardy: A literary agent represents their clients written work and champions for that work to be sold to a publisher. In most cases the work starts out as a book proposal for a non-fiction idea including a memoir or it can be a completed manuscript for a novel or children’s book. Additionally, as a literary agent I attend conferences and do critiques on book pitches and I conduct workshops on memoir writing, proposal writing and building an author platform.
