Just installed 17.10 and so far I'm not enthusiastic. Started off with NetworkManager not registering any changes to my connection settings. I circumvented that by setting

[ifupdown]
managed=true

in NetworkManager.conf and configuring my interface manually. Now at least I have a working network. But already the second problem: I have a synology NAS that I used to automount under 17.04 using:

//synology/video /path/to/mount/video cifs credentials=/myhomedir/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0

in fstab. Suddenly that's not working anymore: I get "Operation not permitted" errors.

Anyone have any idea how to solve this? I already tried adding version=3.0, didn't work

Last year Deepmind (Google) developed AlphaGo, an #AI that defeated the world champion in Go. That version was trained by humans. Now they come up with AlphaGo zero, a new version that trained itself. And is way better: it defeated the original version 100:0. Nice illustration of the speed at which AI is now improving (this week a new AI created algorithm also defeated a new human created algorithm for image recognition in Google photos)

Cool grandfather
The ninety-seven-year-old grandfather in this video was alive when the Model T was still in production. Take a look at his reaction to seeing this futuristic car.

Looking for an interesting #MOOC? How about taking one on #AI from one of its founding fathers?

Well of course. Car ownership will go the way of CD ownership
