The sustained schedule of 80- to 100-hour working weeks, which the macho male academic claims has got him where he is today, is a myth.

Maybe I should consider a new career working for Gear Patrol. They recently did an awesome Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour, wrote a nice article about Rotel audio equipment and now I see this:

Did an enterprising team of bros just change the game forever? We'll let you decide for yourself.

All of these images were computer generated!

For the last few weeks, Googlers have been obsessed with an internal visualization tool that Alexander Mordvintsev in our Zurich office created to help us visually understand some of the things happening inside our deep neural networks for computer vision.  The tool essentially starts with an image, runs the model forwards and backwards, and then makes adjustments to the starting image in weird and magnificent ways.  

In the same way that when you are staring at clouds, and you can convince yourself that some part of the cloud looks like a head, maybe with some ears, and then your mind starts to reinforce that opinion, by seeing even more parts that fit that story ("wow, now I even see arms and a leg!"), the optimization process works in a similar manner, reinforcing what it thinks it is seeing.  Since the model is very deep, we can tap into it at various levels and get all kinds of remarkable effects.

Alexander, +Christopher Olah, and Mike Tyka wrote up a very nice blog post describing how this works:

There's also a bigger album of more of these pictures linked from the blog post:

Fun fact: Beats by Dre are made mostly of plastic... plus a few metal weights to give the illusion of quality.

Today at the Open Network Summit we showed how we've been running our datacenter networks for the past decade.  (For full details you'll have to wait for a paper we'll publish at SIGCOMM 2015 in August.)  

Great networking has long been a key ingredient in having a great cloud platform, and of course you get to use these same networks on +Google Cloud Platform.

The fall at 56 seconds is my favorite. But they are all great!
