Better Language Models and Their Implications - 0 views

  •  
    Just read some of the samples of text generated with their neural networks, insane.
  •  
    "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".

Mars One, which offered 1-way trips to Mars, declared bankrupt | CBC News - 4 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)

The problems with forcing regular password expiry - NCSC Site - 2 views

  •  
    Not new, but always good to read: British intelligence recommend not having password expiry dates. Something we should apply at ESA!
  •  
    I second that. It has been an open secret for long though that frequent password changes are creating more problems than they solve. See Bruce Schneier: https://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2016/08/frequent_passwo.html

    Bio-hacking/cyborg: implanting rare-earth magnets into your fingers to sense magnetic fields. At the same time quite awesome and quite extreme.

Embodied Logic: Researchers Build Artificial Venus Flytrap - Tech Briefs - 1 views

  •  
    Nice story telling. (watch the video) The materials are actually cool, but the venus flytrap pitch (hinting at a biomimetic success) or the embodied intelligence speech are "a bit" of a stretch,

Rocking puts adults to sleep faster and makes slumber deeper | Science News - 2 views

  •  
    First really strong evidence that the vestibular system affects sleep architecture, sleep stability and sleep spindles. If there is an effect due to a changing acceleration there might also be an effect of no gravity vector. We'll find out when I get the space shuttle data.

Optimised spatial planning to meet long term urban sustainability objectives - ScienceD... - 3 views

  •  
    for the ACT architects .... Can we do the same for the Moon Village? We brainstorm on some mathematical simplified objectives for growing the settlement (taking inputs from the modular growth, resources, terrain suitability etc ....), we define some simple rules for growth and we optimize. ..... easy peasy (i am serious)
  •  
    i agree, with most of the parameters that would actually be really cool. but doesn't it get very messy once economy plays a large factor?
  •  
    We can start studying the ideal case, or add also some economical constraints on the settlement layout ...

Scientists engineer shortcut for photosynthetic glitch, boost crop growth by 40 percent - 2 views

  •  
    Did we just solve overpopulation and climate change? With 40% more efficient crops we could easily sustain 10+ billion people on Earth. And 40% more efficient plants would absorb much more CO2 than we are emitting (currently: artificial CO2 emission ~29 GT/y, photosynthesis CO2 capture through plants ~450 GT/y) I am usually very worried about the risks of climate change, but this could be a real game changer!
