"the server sucked my job right in"
It was passed as defined
The Turing Test was not passed, and the only people who claim it was are ignorant reporters looking for an easy story with a catchy headline and tech morons who also believe Kevin Warwick is a cyborg.
The test was rigged in every way possible:
- judges told they were talking to a child
- that doesn't speak English as a primary language
- which was programmed with the express intent of misdirection
- and only "fooled" 30% of the judges.
And, even after all that, Cleverbot did a much better job back in 2011 with a 60% success rate.
This Eugene test outcome was a complete farce -- something to remind everyone that Warwick still exists and to separate the ignorant and sensational tech news trash rags from the more legitimate sources of information.
A hexagonal screen would not only solve the vertical screen problem but also the 60 degree angle screen.
I'm completely serious.
I HATE KDE4. I still use Trinity wherever I can because that was the KDE that I liked.
I don't care about what whiz bang technology went intro this. I don't care how many man years were invested. I don't care who else likes it. I will reserve judgement until I use it myself. If it's not as good as KDE3.5, I'll stick with Trinity.
These 3D whizmos, like for example LEAP motion (incredibly cool), all work great.... for about 20 minutes. Then you put them in the drawer because they require too much muscle coordination and energy to operate. in contrast when you REST your finger on a scroll wheel or REST your hand on a mouse it is not merely not moving, it is at rest in 3 dimensions. it only takes a small effort to move it, but you are not having to run a whole lot of muscles in coordination to keep the hand or finger in a constant position. it's hard to poise your hand in empty space. In the old days, good typists could do this with hands poised over the KB and fingers hovering above the keys. Most people now days use palm rests or put pressure on the keys. those old time secretarial pool typists had to sit up straight and brace their feet on the floor to pull that off. Girdles probably helped!
the first successful mouse replacement will have that feature. Perhaps something with haptic feedback to support your finger a little till you really want to move it.
personally I suspect the some sort of eye motion or maybe a joystick like thing will be the first 3D controller that people can use for long periods.
why not just reduce the window area to half it's current size. If the savings is really significant then that would be significant too. Then compensate with the video system. the remaining window would be the failsafe.
I'm an employer too, and what I care about is whether the applicant's skills are a match for what I need to get done. If I had your kind of hang-ups about people who knew how to pick a better opportunity when one came along, I'd get much less work out the door.
R has more single function high level commands devoted to stats, these are done right internally and are self consistent with other functions for further processing. But its not as general a programming language as python. if you want something different than the canned functions in R then you will need to write them yourself at which point you might as well be using python. however if you like SAS then chances are R will seem more like what you are hoping for.
Chic-Fil-A was donating money to organizations opposed to marriage equality
No, Dan Cathy donated money to organizations that worked against redefining marriage to fit a certain political agenda.
You and the parent both fail to realise that the laws trump your religions. If their is a conflict between the 2 the law always takes precedent. Claiming your invisible sky-daddy wants or doesn't want something is irrelevant.
You're just so full of wrong here.
First, you mean precedence, not precedent.
Second, the SCOTUS just saw it my way.
So, you can go suck a bag full of dicks.
how is the poster a moron?
I can't say for certain how he or she became a moron but the idiocy he or she is displaying is how I know that he or she is a moron.
Five years ago you would never think a corporation had a right to unlimited political spending in the name of the right of free speech of a corporation.
I argued that exact position before McCain-Feingold became law. If each of the people who own a corporation has the right to free speech, it's unthinkable that when they work together they somehow lose that right.
Last year you would not have thought Hobby Lobby could prevent it's employees from getting their Federally guaranteed earned health benefits in the name of a corporation's religious inclination.
1. No one is prevented from getting anything. Every Hobby Lobby employee who can get a doctor to prescribe birth control pills can still get them. Hobby Lobby just won't be forced to pay for it.
2. Yes, I not only thought but I hoped that would be the case when the issue was decided by the SCOTUS.
It really is just a few months at this rate before they vote.
Yeah, I see why you posted anonymously. If you had used your name, in a year, I would have waited to see you post and then replied to remind you what a fucking moron you are.
It's not going to happen. Ever.
What's to stop it?
The fact that to be able to have the right to vote, one must be a citizen and in order to be a citizen one must be a human being.
Pregnancy: it takes two to happen, but it's always the woman's fault.
And the resultant expense is always the man's responsibility.
Right, because running a corporation is a religious practice. Give us this day our daily board meeting.
Every part of your day can be a religious practice.
For some people, running their business in accordance with their faith is a part of their religious practices.
