Your problem is use of the house/doorway metaphor where it does not fit. Even if you could make a case (which I'll not address here) that allowing someone to log into a server does not automatically grant the right to download files to which they have been given read access, you certainly cannot make such a case for an FTP server, which is dedicated to allowing downloads and/or uploads of accessible files. The fact of its being an FTP server that allows the user access counts as the "Please download" sign.

Submission + - IBM Researchers Propose Device to Speed Neural Net Learning by up to 30,000X (arxiv.org)

skywire writes: We've all followed the recent story of AlphaGo beating a top Go master. Now IBM researchers Tayfun Gokmen and Yurii Vlasov have described what could be a gamechanger for machine learning — an array of resistive processing units that would use stochastic techniques to dramatically accelerate the backpropagation algorithm, speeding up neural network training by a factor of 30,000. They argue that such an array would be reliable, low in power use, and buildable with current CMOS fabrication technology.
