Why Deep Learning (aka neural nets) is a thing suddenly: 60x neural network training performance improvement over the last 3 years.
The NVIDIA CUDA® Deep Neural Network library (cuDNN) is a GPU-accelerated library of primitives for deep neural networks. cuDNN provides highly tuned implementations for standard routines such as forward and backward convolution, pooling, normalization, and activation layers. cuDNN is part of the NVIDIA Deep Learning SDK.

Which is greater?:

The value of the best thing that you could* do for the world times the probability that you will actually do it, or

The value of the best thing that you could do for the world that sounds fun to do times the probability that you will actually do it?

Interactively p-hack a data set in your web browser to reach opposite conclusions, both statistically significant.
If you follow the headlines, your confidence in science may have taken a hit lately. Peer review? More like self-review. An investigation in November uncovered a scam in which researchers were rubber-stamping their own work, circumventing peer review at five high-profile publishers.

Market capitalization is a type error -- it is multiplying a marginal price by a non-marginal share count.

So same is true of 1E-7, 1E-8. At 1E-2 it's approximately true but buying stock on that scale will probably cause enough of a price uptick that it'll be a little inaccurate.
