I don't know enough about deep learning or blockchain internals to understand this abstract, but arxiv.org/abs/1902.03912 triggers my too-many-buzzwords alarm. (Seriously though, how can you recycle energy from blockchain systems? 🤔 )

In mei vindt de eerste IndieWebCamp in Nederland plaats en wel in Utrecht. Maar wat ís een IndieWebCamp? Ik heb wat zaken op een rij gezet: diggingthedigital.com/wat-is-i

Well... as in: we will somehow get the plugin, or whatever is needed to render LaTex equations?

Ok, so we have two in favour, two boosts, three favorites, and zero against. I guess the "in favours" have it!

Who wants Latex on Mastodon UTwente?

Mine is Euler's identity:
$$e^{i\pi}+1=0$$

The creators of a revolutionary AI system that can write news stories and fiction – dubbed “deepfakes for text” – have taken the unusual step of not releasing their research publicly, for fear of potential misuse.

OpenAI made a version that can be used to generate infinite positive –or negative– reviews of products. Spam and fake news are other potential downsides. As it is trained on the internet, it is not hard to generate bigoted text, conspiracy theories and so on.

Submitted my first proposal to Berlin Change Days. Looking forward to "Changing the world one room at a time"! 😁

Don't forget, if you're on a Mastodon instance and there's something going on that you don't like, you can add a filter

Nice programme for the ECIR 2019 Industry Day:

Better Language Models: So much that the researchers are "concerned about malicious applications of the technology" (?) 😲

I'm also reminded of a thing Adam Savage has said. Paraphrased, since it's been a while:

"If you come up with some clever new technique for making stuff, and you don't want to share it with the world because you think that the process is what makes your stuff special, you are severely undervaluing yourself as a creator."
