Travel through wormholes is possible, but slow - 2 views

    Travelling through wormholes is not much different from quantum teleportation using entangled black holes...

    If it can be done for obesity, I guess noise is also an option right? :)

Interactive and reproducible science papers with jupyter (and mathematica)? - 5 views

  •  
    I agree soooo very much. An increasing number of journal and scientists are finally coming on board with this open science philosophy and I bet we will soon see a radical change of the whole peer review process and publication business

    "Pérez and his friends were astonished to see the unicorn herd. These creatures could be seen from the air without having to move too much to see them - they were so close they could touch their horns. While examining these bizarre creatures the scientists discovered that the creatures also spoke some fairly regular English. Pérez stated, "We can see, for example, that they have a common 'language,' something like a dialect or dialectic."
  •  
    Shocking. I assume that this could indeed have severe implications if it gets in the "wrong hands".

    "Feed it the first few paragraphs of a Guardian story about Brexit, and its output is plausible newspaper prose, replete with "quotes" from Jeremy Corbyn, mentions of the Irish border, and answers from the prime minister's spokesman." https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=37&v=XMJ8VxgUzTc "Feed it the opening line of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four - "It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen" - and the system recognises the vaguely futuristic tone and the novelistic style, and continues with: "I was in my car on my way to a new job in Seattle. I put the gas in, put the key in, and then I let it run. I just imagined what the day would be like. A hundred years from now. In 2045, I was a teacher in some school in a poor part of rural China. I started with Chinese history and history of science." (https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/feb/14/elon-musk-backed-ai-writes-convincing-news-fiction)

    It's really lucky that it was OpenAI who made that development and Elon Musk is so worried about AI. This way at least they try to assess the whole spectrum of abilities and applications of this model before releasing the full research to the public.
  •  
    They released a smaller model, I got it running on Sandy. It's fairly straight forward: https://github.com/openai/gpt-2

Mars One, which offered 1-way trips to Mars, declared bankrupt | CBC News - 5 views

    RIP Mars One, you were stupid to begin with.
  •  
    Who would have thought?
  •  
    while the whole project was obviously a scam and i'm surprised how long it took courts to figure that out, it managed to get an enormous amount of people interested in space and ignited a conversation (even if that one was just about bashing the project :D)
