Factoring Massive Numbers: Machine Learning Approach - Why and How

We are interested here in factoring numbers that are a product of two very large primes. Such numbers are used by encryption algorithms such as RSA, and the prime factors represent the keys (public and private) of the encryption code. Here you will also learn how data science techniques are applied to big data, including visualization, to derive insights. This article is good reading for the data scientist in training, who might not necessarily have easy access to interesting data: here the…
