Also, I'm pretty sure cups don't always have the same volume. Which one am I supposed to use??
That reminds me of this quite interesting article:
Unbelievable. I went straight to walmart.com to verify your claim, and now I'm definitely amazed.
It's incredible how cheap these things have gotten.
And FFS, this is the DEVELOPER conference. New product announcements here are few and far between. Here's an overview of the last ten years of WWDC. If you can read that list and still be surprised or disappointed at what was or wasn't announced today, you're an idiot.
Awesome page, thanks for the link!
When I taught 3rd year Operating Systems at a University
Although studying it again now, it seemed much more interesting! Maybe my teacher wasn't very good...
Is there a rock beneath the bag? You can't know. You can, however, guess there isn't and adjust your estimates about any future bags containing rocks should this one be harmless. That happens all the time, and is one of the numerous ways in which human rationality tends to break down.
You are giving computers and self driving cars way more power than they have in reality. A human could see the bag bouncing around in the road and make the decision, where the computer system would detect an obstacle and react differently.
And I think you are giving then way less power than they have in reality. Facebook already can detect faces better than we do.
Also, why are you assuming the computer system would react differently? Can't it learn (or be trained) to detect the bouncing bag to know there isn't a risk in this case?
I also think they could learn to do that better than humans too. We can get distracted, and only notice the bag on the last second, when it is laying still and formed just like it was over a rock. A computer system will be totally dedicated to paying attention to everything on the road, and wouldn't miss a single bounce of the bag, when it could reduce the risk factor of the bag enormously and then ignore it.
The human mind, contrary to your implication outperforms computers all the time.
Yes, it outperforms computers all the time, but less with each passing moment.
Do you believe in statistics? If autonomous cars injure and kill less people than human controlled cars, then what's the point of this kind of discussion?
Lots of people don't want to play. They want to win.
You should definitely make a blog post about this!
This news was showing in a lot of sites lately, couldn't wait to see what discussions it would spark here! Let me grab my popcorn!
Flash is no more native than HTML5. At this point it doesn't make sense to "place bets" on Flash at all, unless like the article author you've spent many years on Flash and are not interested in change.
Flash can create a 'native' PC or OS X app (OK, it consists of a standalone Flash player bundled with your flash App, but the practical upshot is the same unless some strange permutation of misconceptions has led you to expect 'bare metal' efficiency from something like Flash).
You can also have this type of 'native' using HTML5 and Nodejs. By using this component called node-webkit.
