"He owned the screen and the stage, and he was so damn weird. Everything that my brother and I were told not to be as black kids, he was. He was sensitive, he was flamboyant, he was sexy, he was bold, he was as feminine as he was masculine. He lived in a place where nobody questioned why his voice didn’t sound “black enough,” he lived in a place where nobody asked why a black dude would love rock n’ roll, he lived in a place where nobody told him to “toughen up” the way they were always telling my brother, he lived in a place where he could wear heels and lace and eyeliner and nobody told him to “be a man.”
And nobody questioned Prince’s blackness. Not a single person." #prince

I'm very much on board with this as we've big mental health issues in the US. "... told me one of the main aims of his work at ICT is to use technology to make psychological support more accessible and he thinks that’s an area where Ellie has a bright future. “Perhaps you have an older adult living alone and suffering from mild dementia. They might have a buddy, a virtual character that can pop up on their TV or their computer or whatever and remind them to take their medication and engage them in meaningful dialogue…maybe play checkers with them,” he said." #AI #artificialintelligence  
Military-funded research has developed artificial intelligence that can read and respond to human emotion.

This is fantastic #neuralnetworks #artwork  
These bizarre images, created by users via Russian website Ostagram, are the product of an art technique known as Inceptionism, where images are combined using neural networks to generate a single mind-bending picture.

Chalk animation makes astrophysics lectures easier! #blackholes #stephenhawking #science  
An illustrated version of Prof Stephen Hawking’s second Reith lecture, Black holes ain't as black as they are painted. Prof Hawking examines scientific thinking about black holes and challenges the idea that all matter and information is destroyed irretrievably within them.

Biological circuits: "Using this language, the researchers programmed 60 circuits with different functions, and 45 of them worked correctly the first time they were tested. Many of the circuits were designed to measure one or more environmental conditions, such as oxygen level or glucose concentration, and respond accordingly. Another circuit was designed to rank three different inputs and then respond based on the priority of each one."

Why we kill the disenfranchised. "What the results show is that human sacrifice may have helped bolster differences in social status. If a society practiced human sacrifice, it was unlikely for social stratification to diminish and for people to return to a society in which everyone was a social equal. The model also showed that the practice of human sacrifice may have helped to hasten the development and separation between various layers of social status.
The results add support to the idea that human sacrifice instilled fear and at the same time demonstrated the power of the elite, Watts says. This system could have been an early means to build and maintain power, which was a step to the development of complex societies and more formal political systems."
