Cheers, Nigel. I keep hearing about computational neuroscience but I get the impression it's more biology than computer science?

Machine learning and related AI stuff seems to pick up any interesting mathematical results neuroscience spits out and figures out if they can be used in ML models. The keyword is "inspired by". I'm just about at the point now where I'm ready to start arsing about with these models. In hacker terminology "hello world". Compile a program that prints your name on the screen. The science part I'm happy to leave to the scientists ;)

First I need to pick an api from the seven billion available.  :eek:

Reminds me a bit of when I learned oop - months of people talking complete gobbledygook and then suddenly I just saw it.  :lulz:

These 3 vids are the ones that I found the most useful in helping me grasp the concept. I was coming at it from a programmers point of view - "How do I code it" Turns out that was the wrong question. You don't code it, it just works.

CNN's are only part of the picture but they're a good starting point. Now I I can grok them, a lot of the other stuff makes more sense.

One of those microexpression tics on minitrue news just now. Couldn't quite look the camera in the eye. Embarrasing. :lulz:

After being informed that I wouldn't be getting it til at least August, imagine my pant-exploding surprise when I checked on Oculus site 5 mins ago for a status update only to find out it shipped today!

On the downside, I'll prolly be sitting with it, in the box, for at least a week til a new PC with a 1080 in it arrives  :argh!:

http://www.ted.com/talks/blaise_aguera_y_arcas_how_computers_are_learning_to_be_creative#t-539223

So I watched a couple of youtube clips a while back, that explained what learning algorithms are up to well enough for my brain to take in but, for anyone who's still trying to wrap their heads around it, the first half of this ted talk does a pretty good job of summing it up.

Scotland is a distinctly different place from england. That's what I personally mean by "country" The english are a lot unlike us. The land itself is totally different and inferior. There's some nice bits but it's basically a shithole. Wales is a bit better but still, it's a bit shite really. In terms of politics, it's a total clusterfuck with a semi-autonomous parliament full of entitled rich pricks, representing big money, locked in a squabbling contest with a bunch of entitled rich pricks down south, representing bigger money, over who gets what share of the skim.

Those wankers try to tell me I'm part of some "United Kingdom" of self interested bullshit power fuckery. I laugh. I'm scottish. I sincerely do not give a fuck.

The Call of Duty generation have now enlisted. If it's not a headshot it doesn't count  :lulz:

Something flashed up on one of my feeds yesterday about a bunch of doors being kicked in. Didn't pay much attention but is it looking like the US is doing their own Yewtree?

So the next installment? What's this baby looking at?

I love how the sighting scopes are bigger than my fucking house! Reminds me of that joke where the cop pulls over the limo for speeding and the pope is driving :lulz:

Also this photo has been fucking my head in for days


I can't figure out what the hell I'm looking at, cos there's a bit in the middle that looks like a photoshop fail. Something about mirrors I think but I cant figure out where they are  :eek:

The whole world never had it's nut. It's a planet full of idiotic talking primates and the trend is a population increase. What we're seeing is evidence that the more idiots you put on a planet, the more retarded the overall global situation becomes. Wait'll we hit 10billion. I have a hunch that'll be the tipping point for an Idiocracy-style critical mass.
