There's a lot of buzz around Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the moment and the term AI seems to be thrown around a lot but, what is it exactly? To clear things up, first of all, let's look at the definition to avoid confusion. We have to go back to the earliest and hence purest definition of AI.  


  From the time, when it was first coined, the official idea and definition of AI were first coined by Jay McCartney in 1955 at the Dart mouth conference. Of course, those plenty of research work done on AI by others such as Alan Turing before this but, what they were working on was an undefined field before 1955.  Okay so, here's what McCarthy proposed. “Every aspect of learning or any other feature of intelligence can in principle be so precisely described that a machine can be made to simulate it. An attempt...

We again differ here with most of the open source ready made the server as we select the communication protocol as JSON, most of another open source available are on XML.JSON processing in Node is simpler and much faster. Another reason was Node has nonblocking architecture hence we need not wait for the process to get completed the way we would be doing in C/C++ or any other platform.   To read about: Mobility in Banking   READ MORE

PHP was first released in 1995, followed much later by Node.js in 2009, and they are both used as a server-side scripting language for developing web-based applications.

Let's compare both of them

Getting started in PHP and node, one can write code easily, the simpler program like "Hello World" can be developed in very less amount of time.


PHP is older technology and support availabl0e on the internet, libraries, and forums are on the higher side compared to Node. The node also has good support, still, support is not as good as PHP because the node is younger technology. But libraries, framework, and support in terms of support are increasing in Node day by day.     READ MORE
