14300000000 / 4803748 = 2976.84
Seems like almost 3k for every person in Ireland, unless I have got the wrong billion or missed a 0 somewhere...
Agree, however quantum is an entirely different world. You'll never be able to just experiment in the same way.
Wish I could give more than 1 upvote for this :-)
Can't wait until they are developed into something that can eat all my excrement and keep a battery charged at the same time!
Yeah, I have this problem on the XBox - got a nice long strong unique password for my MS account. Then I had to enter that using a joystick. That took a while.
A good password manager clears the clipboard for you after you've pasted.
There are also still way too many sites restricting password length as well in my opinion.
There are a lot of misnomers and mistakes around machine learning, the main being the media calling it artificial intelligence when it is not AI (as I keep pointing out in this hallowed comment section).
I would also say you seem to be mixing up hardware vs software - nVidia make hardware that runs ML code, whereas Google have a "cloud" that runs ML as a service. nVida have "cloud" software https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/gpu-cloud/deep-learning-containers/ but this is not a SaaS, it enables others to run their own SaaS using nVidia hardware. Google's SaaS uses their own hardware for training/running the ML code on.
No particular point to make, just trying to clear up these misnomers :-)
They were attacking different amounts with the same pin, not one account with different pins.
Still should have something in place to protect against that though.
Well said 45rpm. The only thing is "people are concerned that they might end up on a list for doing something as innocent as protesting" has already happened and is being swept under the carpet as we speak. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/feb/09/undercover-police-female-activists-inquiry-farce
Yeah... but it's <sarcasm>ON A MOBILE!!!!!</sarcasm>
Yeah, wake me up when someone has replaced "proof of work" with something actually useful rather than just a waste of energy! (and pyramid schemes with some actually useful product...)
I'd go further than that and day it is a central tenant of capitalism, to maximise returns to investors produce the bare minimum you can get away with.
"new low-energy supercomputer" 1,728 Dual Intel Xeon-Gold Skylake 6154 running at 200 W each?
... and this is why security by obscurity doesn't work.
Yeah, it is because they'll be paid a large "competitive" remuneration to "compete" with private firms, so obviously way too clever and above such things as worrying about spelling.
Every tech company I've worked for has a non-compete agreement - you can't just quit and go to the competition! What are the lawyers doing, surely they can't quit directly for the other side? Suppose this is the same as the old politician revolving door style job opportunity.
Would love to know who the guy that thinks SQL injection in the 21st century isn't shocking?
Too right, this is absolutely shocking
Imagine if all their staff left at the same time
Yeah, all of what people are calling A.I. is machine learning.
This is interesting, new(ish) and quite different from the expert system stuff, but is a long way off A.I.
Sounds about right - managers get all the extra money for the "responsibility" then shirking it at every opportunity. leading to https://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/10/10/vw_boss_engineers_blame/
I kindda think MS do much better hardware than software....
Hopefully this will be project treble enabled, so we will have to see how that goes.
It was worth it at 30 before they forced added all the streaming stuff. I just want the delivery, oh well nothing for them instead then!
Did this almost 15 years ago now, it is dumb, for the reasons stated, however I used https://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/ and it wasn't too hard. If your source is pretty well standardised....
That is easy to say (and I am not necessarily disagreeing with you here), but with the high complexity nowadays it would be almost impossible to make something without expecting to have a bug somewhere. Therefore it will require updating.
Just do it. They are soooooooo much better than any other bank :-)
For all those who say they want the old IBM back, maybe you should read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_and_the_Holocaust and then be very careful what you wish for...
FYI, dropping acid is a slang for taking it... https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=drop%20acid
Edit... just thought that the fact I read it that way right off may say more about me that I should do online, oops
This is why weed needs to be legalised :-) that is something the US is leading on though (or at least the forward looking States)!
We could just "terroroll" all the MPs?
Symon, I think you may have misunderstood Macjules - or at least I read it differently to you!
The word citizens is deleted and replaced with subjects as that is how the government are treating us. They currently think they are our superiors and not working for us.
Good. Proof of work is such a waste of time and energy. If a chain was based on something useful like protein folding then I could get behind it.
Maybe the problem was asking a tekkie to do the job of a chippy?
Again, this is just the press and the public calling machine learning, artificial intelligence. It is not artificial intelligence - it is machine learning and I think The Reg really should be doing better on that front.
As so many call it AI, now people think it is actually AI... but it isn't.
No downvote as it is quite hard to do, but for a start don't use bing. It's called bing FFS! https://duckduckgo.com/?q=alternative+search+engines&t=canonical&ia=web
Also, why does a VPN app require Google Play Services? It shouldn't require your location or push messages or a cloud database or any of the other things that the services offer - perhaps you should look into changing that too. This another way Google are locking Android down - all the apps that use their services.
Personally I think it is the MANAGERS of those responsible who need to face the music. For not providing the correct training/software to do the job. Outlook should never be used for this sort of thing.
But but but, conservatives tell us that private companies are amazing.... so it couldn't be Thales' fault, could it?
"Intel officials said the tech will be baked into displays, will need an Intel display adapter and drivers"
Stop it with the propriety crap already! Intel display drivers are so poor even Intel are now using AMD.
I've been watching 4k HDR Netflix over WiFi for as long as they have offered it without problems. Should be OK - over streaming it is compressed though so it still isn't as good as a 4K bluray.
Have to say though that HDR a much bigger improvement than 4K, BBC should concentrate on getting that out first :-)
"difficulty for GCHQ to interpret laws that weren't clearly written" - what's the odds on GCHQ having a hand in writing those laws in the first place? About as much as business "leaders" helped write tax laws with all their vagaries and loopholes.
Don't say that to them... They'll increase patents as well!
Thanks for making our country a slightly more open place. Truth is the only way to fight the corruption.
So if we were to link against proprietary libraries they will be automatically updated and all installations updated without any issues?
Either I am missing something or this is just calling out open source for FUD.
I really can't understand why everyone seems to hate him so much now - this "squatting" isn't his choice, bet he isn't having fun there.
Think we need to remember why he is there - total fabricated charges by the US, Sweden and the UK. Like the current leaker -https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/05/15/vault_7_leak/ I doubt was a rapist/peodo, unless every one of them suddenly has uncontrollable sexual urges as soon as the US discovers who they are but have no evidence for a court case.
If the UK wasn't spending so much money just to keep the US happy then he wouldn't have to hide? The skipping bail is an offense here, but wouldn't have happened if Sweden didn't do the same thing on the fake rape charge.
This has nothing to do if you like him or not - I hate outspoken, self-aggrandising people as much as everyone else.
"However, he is facing unrelated charges in the New York Southern District court for possession and distribution of child abuse images." - totally completely and utterly unrelated m'lord
"In fact the only deals London Stock Exchange-listed Capita has shouted about on an official basis is the extension with M&S, one with the Beeb and one with NI Invest."
Financial Services Compensation Scheme - public body
Beeb - public funded
NI Invest - public body
So that just leaves M&S...
You mean, let's scoop up this ejaculate and use it for our own nefarious purposes? Good plan, along with asteroid mining!
