This isn't /k/ !
Anyone who has grabbed Mitnick's "The Art Of..."

Dones't mean he/she can effectively defend against them.
Like for real-world viruses, the cell wants to help.
It is not entirely clear to me how Nuance is involved, aren't they just doing speech processing and generation?
I suppose the audio stream goes out over the Internet (unencrypted?) to Nuance's servers, is processed according to customer demands, then another audio stream goes back into the creepy puppet?
But Totoro is pretty scary.
And that Catbus is just NOPE!

The last time that was possible was somewhat before WWI, I think.

Not even once.

As if a millions of consumer minds had suddenly clamored for a "professional" system, then been utterly silenced with Disney-level shit. I fear something terrible has happened.
That's how it works.
If consumers decide that the product is too dear for the purpose or the prevailing economic conditions, the market will auto-correct in any case.
10nm is frankly amazing!
At IEEE Spectrum (Leading Chipmakers Eye EUV Lithography to Save Moore’s Law) EUV (13.5-nanometer light) we read:
Today, GlobalFoundries uses triple patterning when it makes its 14-nm chips, the most advanced ones currently created in Fab 8. This means that, for certain critical layers, a chip takes two extra passes through a scanner—and every other tool that is used to make those layers. And the company anticipates going to quadruple patterning at 7 nm, its next chip generation, says George Gomba, who is leading the company’s task of evaluating the technology at a SUNY Polytechnic Institute facility in Albany, along with colleagues from IBM.
For now, GlobalFoundries plans to roll out its 7-nm chips in 2018 without EUV, but it is reserving the option of pulling the technology in when it is ready. A key question for Gomba and his colleagues is when the cost of EUV will break even with multiple patterning. And it’s a very tricky question to answer because it depends on a number of unknown factors, including how bright EUV light sources will become and the uptime of an entire EUV lithographic system—the percentage of time it’s actually available to be used.
So, how good will the production capacity for 10nm be in mid-2017 (for a rollout in 2018)?
EUV is not yet fully ready. Maybe in 2018+.
(Compare with the optimistic prediction of EUV Chipmaking Inches Forward: ASML says extreme-ultraviolet-light machines should be bright enough for commercial production by 2015 from of July 2013.)
They are already Obama air lines. No change expected.

This inspires as much confidence as seeing two men in black leather coats doing a beeline towards your front door at around 06:00 in the morning, while a largish Daimler-Benz is idling on the kerb.
What exactly is going on here?

I hear it's statistically not as bad as meedja makes it out to be.
But is it racism?
No, no but there was talk about giving them a save space instead.
But is it logarithmic or linear?

It's not enough. I know.
You need to be embedded in a coder sweatshop and suffer mightily for a few years to really get into hit. In fact, you need someone that is both a bit of a mathematician and of a woodworking artist and who can consciously walk the line between those two domains.
It's a judgement call.
Write you own if you have time, money, and the skills.
But beware of the freshman's error who think's capable of doing good and ends up reinventing the square wheel. And who forgets about testing and debugging. And that the maintenance problems just BEGIN once the code has shipped.
Generally not worth it.
In fact, don't do it. If you must, clean up an existing library.
"The best code is no code."
> We tend to pick the best tool for the job, but it does mean that I'm now supporting a system written in a mix of node.js, d3, bash, Ruby, Java, T-SQL, Postgres 8, Postgres 9, Mongo, Python 2.7, Python 3, Go, MDX, DAX, R, Cypher, SPARQL and some proprietary stuff.
If you are using node.js and Mongo, you are NOT picking the best tool for the job.
It sounds more like your are picking the tool that is hot.
And not even a single logic programming language?
> 5% unemployed will become 15-20%
That was the past, I think.
The Whig Theory of History fails again.
It's like crazy, lazy and entitled sysops (possibly demented by self-inflicted information and task overload) locking users out so that system can run uninterrupted and unimpended by the vagaries of the people (was "2001: A Space Odyssey" actually a sly methaphor for "2016: A State Odyssey"), and the people get an explodo-collar to make doubly sure. Well, they are out shopping anyway (low prices only today!), so that to make triply sure.
We got through the Cold War with all the attendant bullshit, scare, wetwork, agitprop, coverups scandals, spying and counterspying ... and now this??

CYC has not gone far with this (or has it? not much has been written on CYC since the early 90s, it was a prematurely ambitious project), and it's not by playing vidya that you get common sense.

Here's hoping for better NPC AI in games because let's face it, the current ones suck. Even the Alien in "Alien.Isolation" was not that feral.
And I don't really know why, it's not as if learning algorithms were invented yesterday. State machines still rule. Is it just the lack of processing power on PCs and consoles?
"We have the opportunity to change the balance further in our favor in cyberspace – but only if we take additional bold action to do so"
Spoken like someone who doesn't understand the problem, who thinks that security is a zero-sum game and can only be performed by state actors (the dreaded "we", i.e. "we the State") and that there is some sort of Cyberspace which is just another venue for Team America to boldy stick a manly dick in.
Anyway, it's all Putin's fault, and also Iran's, and North Korea's. And China's but mainly Putin's.

That's because Hitler was left wing. Only crazy-arsed nationalistic left wing.

That and the willingness to toe Washington's line. The breakdown of Turkey is just beginning, the refugee/economic-migrant crisis is not over by a long shot, Ukraine is a festering sore soon to be granted VISA-free travel rights. Whatever next.

Well, explain this then:
