I got an email from Fort Knox about how they were going to embed industry stooges in the rehearsal space. Then I got sad the OTSFM never seems to care what people do outside of their classes. Then I went on a YouTube fugue which helped me recall stuff like this.

Jam Econo!

Pushing GPU neural network limits. "On the hardware front, the NYU deep learning cluster makes use of the high speed GPU Direct bus, which rolled out several years ago across the GPU computing cards from Nvidia to allow, among other things, multiple GPUs to directly read and write to CUDA host and device memory, which cuts down on the overhead of the CPU. On the software side, LeCun said that three programming tools are central to using many GPUs to tackle large neural networks. CUDA is central, of course, but so too is a low-level C compiler for the CPU’s work and Lua for the interpreter language. At the system level, the team is using Torch 7, which is commonplace in deep learning following development at Facebook, Google, and Twitter, and which features a numerical backend with CUDA hooks that can make quick use of an expanding set of deep learning libraries."

Yann LeCun says upcoming systems from major hardware vendors that are working on specialized chips for deep learning will couple the neural network accelerators on the same die as a CPU. He foresees these being used on mobile devices for vision.
Back in the late 1980s, while working in the Adaptive Systems Research Department at AT&T Bell Labs, deep leaning pioneer, Yann LeCun, was just startin

Vaccines!

It took 15 years and 250 million vaccines, but this week, health authorities officially declared North America and South America free of rubella — a virus that can cause severe birth defects.

Chickens are more efficient in factory farms. Viruses are more efficient in factory farms too.
Avian influenza is ravaging poultry flocks across the Upper Midwest. The virus is "doing things we've never seen it do before," and understanding about transmission is very limited, a scientist says.

Aren't software agents like Xora closer to the meaning of the US Constitution's Bill of Rights "quartering of soldiers" than most constitutional privacy case law?
 
It's not illegal because the law usually lags behind technology.
And now in a delightful new installment of a series I just made up right now—Why Isn’t This Illegal?—we have an employer allegedly firing a woman for not wanting to be tracked after-hours on her work phone.

Skynet will be made of this.
Aung Thiha originally shared to The Future of Humanity:
 
Neuromorphic chips are important not only for smarter processors but also for our future electronics brain implants for cognitive amplification.

"Memristors, exotic electronic devices only confirmed to exist in 2008, have been used to create a chip that borrows design points from the brain. The prototype chip did not learn to do anything more difficult than recognize extremely simple black-and-white patterns. But larger, more complex versions might make computers better at understanding speech, images, and the world around them.

The circuitry of the chip, built by researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Stony Brook University, processes data not with digital logic circuits but with elements that mimic, in simplified form, the neurons and synapses of biological brains. When a network like that is exposed to new data, it “learns” as the synapses that connect neurons adjust the neurons’ influence on one another."

I wholly support a lasting diorama. We should not be so hasty to assume everything is made better by having the latest technology woven into it.

WTF Am I supposed to take away from this headline? Rahm is embarrassed by Englewood violence? Spike Lee is a troublemaker?
Mayor Rahm Emanuel said he met with Spike Lee on Wednesday and expressed his displeasure with the director's decision to call a movie he's planning to film "Chiraq," which Emanuel said Lee told him would be about black-on-black violence in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)
