BpmDj 4.5.2 ! This release has been upgraded with an output limiter. Go to the volume bar, click on the limit icon and let the loudness wars continue. When the limiter is turned on a fast acting look ahead limiter is applied to the audiostream. This makes it possible to play your songs slightly louder than originally intended and also covers any clipping issues that might result from a too strong gain. When the limiter is turned off, the output volume will adjust itself downwards whenever the amplitude exceeds 0 dB.

I am boiling with rage and would love to tear society apart. I would love hurting a whole lot of middle managers. You know them. They are the constipated type. Walk like set up wooden puppets, dress professionally to hide their incompetence and squeak a constant stream of lies and deception into peoples' ears. Their mind is so hopelessly addicted to their career that they have to swallow anti-depressant by the tons just to nuke that one honest thought they ever had in their life: that humanity would be better off without them living. Only when they, those who have no freedom in their mind, sense that you are not free either, will you get that job.
Sadly, there is no cure for this cancer.

In short: the radon transform was fun, but you know as a 'scientific engineer' I was too academic.

+Werner Van Belle startups tend to be more idealistic - people tend to not work there just for the money (because the money isn't that good).

It's only when a company gets bigger that it becomes unable to filter out middle management drones, responsibility gets diffused and all that matters is the quarterly report.

In the summer of 2003, Viacom executive Mel Karmazin managed to sum up old media’s horror of the Internet with one of business lore’s greatest vulgar one-liners. Karmazin, a swaggering former ad salesman and onetime CBS Corporation president, had made an expedition to check out Silicon Valley’s hottest young upstart:...

The clue at the end: 'In our interview, Tadelis put his advice to advertisers a little more bluntly. “If you were comfortable for the past 100 years, if you were comfortable pissing in the wind and hoping it goes in the right direction, don’t kid yourself now by looking at this data.”'

I make more from returning empty drank bottles (0.08 EUR) than from Google ads (0.03 EUR/click). So I should keep on drinking ?

Deep content-based music recommendation

We trained a latent factor model on listening data from one million users for just under 400k songs, and then trained a deep convolutional neural network to predict the latent factors from audio. We showed that we can make sensible recommendations using these predicted factors, despite the large semantic gap between the characteristics of a song that affect user preference and the corresponding audio signal. We used the Million Song Dataset for this work.

Below is a t-SNE visualization of the distribution of predicted usage patterns, using latent factors predicted from audio. A few close-ups show artists whose songs are projected in specific areas. 

We will be demonstrating our approach at NIPS 2013: users will be able to specify YouTube clips. The demo will predict factors for these clips and try to find other clips with similar predicted usage patterns in a large database of 600,000 songs (a subset of the Million Song Dataset).

This is work with +Aäron van den Oord and +Benjamin Schrauwen

The entire android tool chain is apparently broken with the latest update. Are these people incompetent or what ?

First Cryosleep install sold for 2 EUR. 1.32 EUR will be mine (the rest is Google tax). This would have matched about 66 clicks, or 66000 impressions, something I would have made after 825 days with admob.

Als uw hond kan schrijven.... dan is het eerder een pen.
Meiner Meinung nach war der Grimm Arbeitnehmer eher langsam und nicht hinreichend kompetent um das Problem in einer angemessenen Zeit zu lösen. Er brauchte 3.5 Stunden um herauszufinden, dass unsere Heizung (der Firma Brötje) einen gekanntes Fabrikatsfehler hat, ohne jedoch meiner Bitte nachzukommen die Firma zu kontaktieren und um Rat zu fragen. Dadurch hat sich die Reparatur unnötig verzögert. Nach telefonischer Rücksprache mit der Firma Grimm wurde mir zugesagt, dass ich nur eine halbe Arbeitsstunde bezahlen müsse, jedoch wurde mir dann _viel_ mehr in Rechnung gestellt. Ich bin daher insgesamt mit der Dienstleistung dieser Firma nicht zufrieden und würde sie als eher inkompetent betrachten.
