ditch the statins!
I'd guess with the ARM NN software this would come close to some high end GPUs for performance for fewer beer vouchers and running costs?
If they were connected to peltric sets I can see why they were kept unconscious.
it is an herd of giraffes heading ->.
I used to use cwygin to get things done just to prove a point.
I used one of those along with 20 other engineers and things could get slow - a 3 minute jobbie would take half an hour or more. Until the day I discovered that a program I had would crash and leave me in whatever superuser debugging mode and then I could lift the priority of my batch job to 2 below max (any more and the OS hung) and my job would be done in 3 minutes and the system managers never found out why everything else ground to a halt.
I never did it on bigger jobs because they meant trips to the really good library we had there to further my knowledge of obscure computing ephemera.
Why? Its not likely to change the share price!
Or perhaps the problem is going to a company to discuss outsourcing your security and giving them enough details to make it worth their while to do some outsourcing themselves to ensure your motive to outsource is enhanced. Possibly.
Musk thinks too big though - he just jumps on ideas without really thinking them through. I dont think he's an engineer as such - more a hacker.
Why bother though? I've got £2000 worth of roof tiles that dont get wet because they've got PV mounted over them. Why not just stick PV up instead of tiles - it would be a lot quicker and save a lot of (possibly literal) debugging when shit gets in the tile contacts!
Since Pluto crosses Neptune's orbit presumably they will demote that as it hasn't cleared its neighbourhood.
One of the hard things about seismology on a global scale is the wave front of a shock is seriously blurred and diffused by the time(s) it gets to the other side of the planet. Even something as massive as Chicxulub would only be a medium to large earthquake and it would be very unlikely to act as a trigger to a volcanic eruption.
I think Intel cant afford ARM. I voted against the sellout to Softbank as I though ARM would be worth 4 or five times the offer price in a few years. Seeing their post buyout release of info on there NN software I thought I'd underestimated. Seeing their ML stuff I KNOW I underestimated.
I was working with some fast Bipolar in the late 80's and someone had published a design for a 600 gate 16 bit machine and I simulated a version of that at 2.4Ghz on the process I was using. It only had 7 or 8 opcodes* but at the time it would have been the fastest CPU out there by a large margin.
*IIRC but Baby only had 7 and that was 'complete'.
Its already cured my yoga injuries!
@mage. I am a fan of ARM (I fucking wish I was still a shareholder though) However for nearly 40 years I have always thought that if IBM had chosen the 6809 computing would have been 10 years further on than it was. But would the future, ARM*, have still been around?
*I say the future is ARM - if there ML stuff comes out at a Raspberry Pi level they WILL be the future.
BBC micro reboot? I've seen a copy of BBC basic for the Pi somewhere. The 6502 is easily emulated on it. So unless you're anal enough to want to put it in a box like the one you cant remember anyway your pretty much there.
You dont need a graphics card - it helps but even an atom driven laptop will be faster than a Pi.
There's also a project to get a lot of maths dumped onto the graphics unit on the PI. Combine that with the Tensor flow and (if my fag packet maths is correct) then up 100 or so Pi Zeros would be the most cost effective way of buying computing power for your AI.
I've often wondered if I should get some form of above cloud transport for events like this. Then I remembered noctilucent clouds.
And as for Eta Carinae being above the clouds would probably mean the GRB would render you blind anyway, either permanently or with a shit load of Cherenkov.
but just as bad for your teeth!
Helium, having the very low boiling point of 4.2 K is absolutely unbelievabley volatile with exaggeration.
Do I smell another government bailout on the wind? That would be a nice collection of shit software that could go tits up without some govmnt help if the contractor points out the huge wholes in the contract they got the idiot in charge to sign
I would hazard a guess that Google may be too interested in the marketing possibilities for them to ever get language sorted properly. As others have pointed out here GIGO. And one of the inputs from Google is bound to be something to do with money.
The more I read and play with AI the more I am convinced it has some amazing possibilities (GIGO may also come into play here) but the data fed into the AI has to be free of bias and the choice of functions for it from a commercial company is bound to be biased. It really needs to be taken away from commercial instincts and some form of pan-global open sharing of everything involved is possibly the only safe way forward. We have the technology - I bet in 5 years we will have ARM devices of the processing power of Titans running on a couple of Watts and costing $10s not $1000s. If governments dont get on board and co-operate soon we really will be fucked.
The default in English for a condition that is less than favourable is to blame the EU.
@fibrefool - you dont need to dig though - pull out a couple of copper pairs and there's room down the duct for 30 fibres.
I worked there before it was called Adastral. I designed a fibre optic chip that, if BT had it now, would drop the cost of FTTH to less than annual copper maintenance. On trying to find funding in the wonderful new internal market I was told 'We are a public company now, we dont do research'.
Hoping for a class action what with interest rates so low?
However - there was practically no Caesium-137 in the atmosphere before we started trying to make nuclear weapons.
However I would bet the first release was when some poor bugger was tapping a hemisphere with a ruler and got a blue light and died few days later after finishing his homework.
Tissue is required, and must contain letters.
Having ventured beyond my normal sandpit my two TomToms enjoyed telling me I was driving across fields and one even asked me to update it. So on arriving safely at a friends house and discovering he had a windows pc I attempted to update them only to discover they couldn't be updated, or at least not by me thought I was welcome to spend a bloody fortune on a new one.
Perhaps we can use it to stop those dickheads in lorries using roads they really shouldnt. Down here in the sticks we get them driving up roads they cant get down, and they dont seem to be able to reverse any more - is that still in the test? Just last week I had to make a 5 mile 40 minute detour to avoid two lorries who had tried to cross on the entrance to a single track bridge. They had to take them apart to get them out.
And the twat who couldn't be arsed to reverse 10 yds to a passing place on a single lane road and tipped on its side in the ditch invisible behind the long grass as he tried to pass me on the verge before I'd even come to a stop!
Feel better now thanks!
stocking up in case of brexit.
They'll just build a wall.y.
It may have been over-engineered a few years a go but sea level rise and its effects are not linear, they are heavily fractal - New Orleans is a good example. Another is Dunwich in Suffolk a couple of storns over 100 years removed more than half the village and moved the coastline back the same distance its moved in the last 500.
And as for a Tsunami - well you may think they could get it back online in a day or three but when the a storm like this hits then there is unlikely to be any roads left and no power anyway as the grid will probably be taken out too, We dont have enough redundancy cos profits for real disaster management.
FTFY. MS Fucked That For You.
A PDF is out of date the minute it is made. The online HTML should be up to date, should be legible on phone, tablet or PC and does not self shuffle in the print tray or drink coffee.
Loose printed PDF. Oh! Look its still on the fucking internet I can find it there. Print and repeat.
Pointless waste of trees/computer space.
Pointless Document Format!
For a while until someone 'upgrades' something. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to 'get the job done again' as code that used to work no longer does due to different choices of which version of the language/libraries to settle on,
I'm trying to teach kids this stuff and having to take them through a virtual environment configuration for each flashy example is getting a bit fucking tedious.
if they'd added the word 'phone'.
The patent 'holder' should have extremely large type copies of Knuth dropped on them from a height conducive to causing as much pain for them and merriment for the rest of us.
And it seems these are full of problems with uncleared memory. I wonder how many pipeline paths will be de-utilised due to potential memory leaks.
I'm assuming the GPU is for something other than graphics? I'd be seriously interested in some 7nm ML ARM stuff in my 'laptop' - that's doing 3TOPs per W at 14nm so it would be like having a Titan with no interest in my battery on the move!
I have enough mutant text translations thank you very much.
If its just a spice simulator just run ngspice instead.
Or you could put $4000 into a London bank and have a clean $4000.
Might not be them - ARM has been releasing software for its chips under the Compute Library and ARMNN and other stuff.
I'm even more pissed off at having my ARM shares stolen from me now!
I just used to look at the ones in the quarantine directory.
That was very instructive!
Gene Cash. I only have 2 installed as system wide pythons - the same as you. However many interesting python projects use libraries that are not consistent with the main distributions and so you have to run them under pipenv and each instance install the whole bloody world of libraries with your project.
And worse you have to remember to close the pipenv your working in when you move to another project otherwise all hell breaks loose again!
And if you accidentally install anaconda....
All this effort to re-invent dll hell.
I was just reading up on pyenv for my teaching kids programming wot I am starting and then realised I've got 40 separate python installations on my system. I'm not sure I want to teach this to kids!
