I cannot wait for AI to take over
Recently, we have experienced a significant heat wave in England. The temperature soared well above what is normal for June and air stood still for several days. England is not a country where many residential dwellings have any inbuilt air conditioning, so buying a portable fan or an air conditioner was the only option for those who wanted to be comfortable in the scorching heat. The problem was, however, that most of the shops have completely ran out of these appliances in a matter of days. When the stock was finally replenished and prices were put up, the heatwave was over and shops ended up with piles of cooling appliances that nobody wanted to buy any longer.
Remember that selfishness can be healthy and ethical
When I was studying at university, I wanted to become a part of something that would make the world a better place. I didn't want to be yet another cog in a corporate profit-earning machine. This is why I have chosen Environmental Biology as my bachelor's degree and have later chosen Environmental Informatics as masters degree. I wanted to be as altruistic as possible and I despised self-interested people. I was also a practicing Christian. However, since then, I gained more insight into how capitalist economic system actually works and realised that self-interest can be good, depending on the circumstances. Moreover, I am still a Christian and I don't see any conflicts between my believe that selfishness can be good and my Christian beliefs.

How big data web applications are built

However, on its own, this basic setup is not suitable for a big data application.
Any web application that is intended to manage large quantities of data would need the following components:

Where to start if you want to become a hacker
The word hacker does not necessarily have to have a negative connotation and not all hackers are cybercriminals. Generally, there are 3 types of hackers: black hats (those who do get involved in cybercrime), white hats (those who work on behalf of legitimate clients to defend them against cybercrime) and grey hats (a mixture of both).
Generally, regardless what path a hacker would chose, whether it is to attack cybersystems or to defend them, the skillset that he or she would need would be the same. Performing a cyberattack is all about finding and exploiting security vulnerabilities, while defending against cyberattacks involves actively finding and patching vulnerabilities before malicious black-hat attackers can find them.
