You keep an old NTSC TV around to watch them on...
Or, you know, it will keep going down year after year.
Thanks for not understanding how evolution, or the mind for that matter, works.
We have facilities for communication and self-identity largely as a result of being hunters -- being able to "run a model" of our prey in our minds was massively useful. This structure then got applied to the self, and so the ego was born. (This is one of the currently en vogue evolutionary explanations for the rise of consciousness -- obviously not a subject you can create causal experiments to test easily).
What evolutionary pressures are there for creating self-awareness in algorithmic trading applications (given that it would necessarily be less efficient, and likely introduce errors)?
Then the algorithm corrects for that after seeing it once.
You, coming up with a "plan" 10 seconds after reading an article -- you can't outthink people who are employed to come up with ideas for improving how the computer thinks.
I'm kind of confused as to where google is going these days.
Is this just a side effect of hiring too many bored CS graduates -- put enough in a room together and they come up with their own languages?
I just can't see this being used outside of google -- Web Programming is largely a solved problem, and there are already a plethora of options. Since MS and Apple won't touch anything that comes out of Google, it'll only ever be relevant on the server side -- which is where there are already too many options.
Unless this does something radical -- and judging by what Go was, I doubt it -- this will probably be a niche thing they use internally.
Who was "we"?
Wealthy capitalists pretty much spent the first half of the twentieth century indoctrinating every western culture they could into believing communism and socialism are capital-E Evil. Some places the propaganda took better than others.
This is a direct factor in why the healthcare debate in the states is so broken. When a good portion of your culture genuinely believes that socialism is absolutely Evil, trying to build a modern system to help them is difficult.
The silly thing is, is that there are huge sections of the US that are entirely funded by tax dollars (and they aren't necessarily what you think), but to ever acknowledge that in public, and to try and make it better, given that it is what it is, is heretical.
That's my list. I haven't found a decent free chess game (with AI... there are some free online ones, I believe), and there are too many pay ones for me to look at, but if you find a winner, let me know. Sudoku apps are a dime a dozen...
