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:

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!:


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:

Finally democracy delivers some chaos I can get behind!
