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!

What's your favorite equation?
Mine is Euler's identity:

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

Settings > Filters > Add new filter

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."

Google Colab is a free jupyter notebook cloud service that provides free GPU in your google drive.It is very handy, specially when you don't have access to a decent computational environment. I'v been using it for more than a year and it kind of feels good to use google resources for free when they use my data for free :). But, I was a bit shocked when I realized that almost nobody in our group has never used or heard about it. This links explain how you can use Colab:

Carrièrebeurs bij de UT: speeddaten met ‘de grote jongens’: ENSCHEDE - Studenten kunnen zichzelf promoten bij bedrijven met klinkende namen als Tata Steel, Mitsubishi en KLM. Maar ze kunnen ook hun LinkedIn-account laten controleren op onvolmaaktheden. De carrièrebeurs bij de UT is weer begonnen. tubantia.nl/enschede/carriereb

Student survey data from a large public university in Australia shows bias against women and teachers with non-English speaking backgrounds.


De eerste Nederlandse #indiewebcamp in Utrecht komt er aan. @frank en ik zetten in op 18 en 19 mei. We zoeken nog een locatie, en zodra we die hebben volgt de aankondiging en uitnodiging.
