    "Without the relevant data for reasoning about the state of AI technology, we are essentially "flying blind" in our conversations and decision-making related to AI [...] The AI Index is an initiative to track, collate, distill and visualize data relating to artificial intelligence. "

Python is becoming the world's most popular coding language - Daily chart - 3 views

  •  
    In the past 12 months Americans have searched for Python on Google more often than for Kim Kardashian, a reality-TV star. The number of queries has trebled since 2010, while those for other major programming languages have been flat or declining.

    Likely this is correlated with the increased interest in machine learning in the past decade - all the popular DL libraries are Python-based after all...

Demonstrating a new technology for space debris removal using a bi-directional plasma t... - 2 views

  •  
    Some people answering the question 'What's cooler than blasting space debris with lasers...?'.
  •  
    If it fires in both directions, can we align it such that it deorbits two debris with one shot?
  •  
    :) the idea of having this method for debris removal is actually an ACT one from Claudio Bombardelli (ACT RF in MAD https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ion-beam_shepherd). This is just a technological device to implement it so that the system on board is simplified (i.e. instead of two engines, you get away with one and a weird nozzle)

    Marcus, you cannot align it to get rid of two debris as you need to keep the spacecraft close to the debris as this is a long duration acion. One of the two would drift away (can only follow one!)
