Something... something... ice age... something... dinosaurs extinct because too cold for reptiles. My natural history is admittedly patchy but now I find even the patches are wrong. There's a cartoon about it, ffs! Now we have to go back and add feathers to all the classic dinosaur movies. Jurassic Quack anyone?

It's too bad high intelligence is so highly correlated with low self-esteem and depression.

I hate watching giants among men, like you people, walking themselves into dark thoughts and shit.

You guys should drive a couple nails into your heads. I tell yah, being retarded is fucking awesome. You just can't care.

Intelligence is a worthless survival skill. That's why it's selected against. Don't meet many supersmart fuckers do you? Being a maniac is miles better. Having the energy and the will to just smash a motherfucker clean out existence and a complete lack of concern for the consequences trumps depression every time in my book. I've extensive experience with both and that's my verdict :evil:

Wait, dinosaurs were endothermic?? Why wasn't I informed of this?  :argh!: So all that shite about the ice age wiping them out? Not even remotely funny  :kingmeh:

I never really analysed what I'm trying to accomplish here on this board. Don't know if being liked is very high on my priority list. Dunno why the fuck I hang out here but I goddamn love it so I keep doing it. In terms of friendship and good happy stuff? It's a limited medium compared to IRL but sometimes when one of you spags has something good happen I feel happy for you and if something shit goes down, it bums me out. What's friendship on the internet if it's not that?

Will I help you move a sofa in? Fuck no but some part of my life is better for you all being in it.

Screaming lord fuckballs, cheers for the link!



*ETA: WTF is with google photosharing?

If this shit isn't exactly what it sounds like I will kill a mofo  :argh!:

Cos it sounds like we can now build cyborg fish. You ever hear something that's so fucking cool, you plain don't have the heart to fact check it?

Would say that pretty much sums up whats going on with back propagation as I understand it. The hard part for me, as a coder, was letting go and not needing to be able to read the finished logic. It was a kind of jarring transition, coming from a background of having to micromanage every fucking step in the machines "thought process"  :lulz:

The win is strong in this Poo fellow!

One of those cross discipline,  same terminology deals? Intelligence in the ai vernacular is like a black box version of software but much more powerful. We understand why it works but the actual state,  in old money the program logic, is something that just happens. It learns. It learns to perform intelligent operations on input data. It does stuff that would take millions of coders millions of years to hand code. If it could even be hand coded at all.

Considering the impact the olde fashioned, hand coded shit just had on the planet, I'm fast approaching certainty that no one aint seen nothing yet.

Yeah, cool. Its the thing I thought it was. A lot of the ai gurus have backgrounds in "neuroscience" I'm guessing the computational flavour would be like a bridge. I look across it and I see icky, gooey stuff, waiting to pounce on me and I'll place a bet a biology person would look across to this side and see weird mechanical stuff made of robots and numbers.

I heard about some results where simulated results on visual cortex matched the real meat version in some measurable way. That slicing thing you were doing? But I know those meat models are heavy fucking duty compute power, a long way off from use case in any sort of production scenario. The coding equivalent is more high level logic function. What you lack in fidelity, you gain in footprint and scalability.

Intelligence itself is beginning to be clearly understood and described in math. What we're discovering is it can be improved, in machines. Massively. Not personality or intellect,  those are fucked up weird shit that nobody seems to be able to work out yet but raw intelligence. They're calling it "artificial" but really it's more a case of "optimised",  or "ampliified" 

I'm doing what I've been doing since I was a kid - looking for problems and applying computatiinal solutions, only this time I don't need to program it. This will be like cheating for a living.  :lulz:

I love head games. Post here/OMF/TfYS/PM wherever. I'm all ears

Is my point. Security is a degree of scale. There is no absolute. Which kinda fucks with his Liberty for Security theory. Liberty for security may well be the pitch that government inc are making and sure as fuck they'll take their payment in advance but that doesn't make it any less bullshit. I'm with ECH - I got plenty of both, go sell snake oil somewhere else.  8)

There is no "real" security. I'll see your six point locking mechanism and raise you a thermonuclear warhead  :lulz:
