  • Commented on Official Announcement: April Fools Day is Cancelled
    Interestingly I believe that Australia and New Zealand are testing 100% of inbound travelers and sequencing 100% of all cases they find (in community or inbound travelers). If there were a new low key version making the rounds (and was...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    But on the main topic : Nvidia live deep fake as video encoding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVa1xRaHTA0 Combined with this : https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-blog/satin-microsoft-s-latest-ai-powered-audio-codec-for-real-time/ba-p/2141382 I see a weird future where the AI says what it thinks you would have said to save the hassle of...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    I think poor impulse control and inability to think through consequences of action would account for 80% of every interaction with police (the rest being thugs doing thug life). As you said its a freaking quandary when a person who...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I'm so, so glad I was 100% wrong about the bad side. Hopefully the goods will come to pass....
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    I agree that for something COVID19 like it would be a non-issue. Robust contact tracing (assuming ubiquitous surveillance for safety etc.) and isolation would be trivial too. You'd have 99% confidence re who was infected before you even started testing,...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    First of all, my feelings go out to all you folks living in the USA This must be such a gut punch, I can imagine the disbelief and horror you're feeling. Back to the original question, as we all do...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Have you thought about midi controllers? Some are pretty cheap and if you use python, dotnet or god forbid java you should be pretty covered for apis....
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    I'd settle for a pillow lovingly pressed to his face for 3-5 minutes. Apparently he's one of the few people who has managed to feed on nothing but the hate directed towards him. If the world is just and right...
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    A friend in the middle east described the horror a lot of people there showed around the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein. The poor man was just trying to help his billionaire clients get a taste of novelty to colour their...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    You're not a bad guy. I agree. I was ranting at the fact that the offensively uncivil has become normal, and saying it's abnormal leads to people who are doing ok in the system defending the system. Pirates do something...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    /rant/ There is a big difference between breaking the law and being part of a society. There are norms and forms that make your culture and and guide you in being a good member of society, club member, family member,...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    I'm lucky enough (and it is really rolling double sixes six times in a row kind of luck) that might, all things going well, be out of lock-down in 4 weeks with zero community transmission and the remaining cases being...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Adelaide has closed the borders to other states (for people), and I'v been lead to believe that schools will be closed (around Australia?) by Thursday. I expect there will be a 5-6 week lockdown announced by the end of next...
  • Commented on A serious question
    I've always loved this idea although I would have thought Darwin or the Pilbra would be a better bet. I assume its Queensland because you can plug into the east coast grid. Once you have a power-line (and the technology...
  • Commented on Sucker bet (a thought experiment)
    I like that idea, its like the SP02 charts or heart rate charts. The heat index numbers are kind of useless without the context of age and activity (until some upper limit). @37c  sitting typing in my indoor/outdoor office -...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    I'd say the minimum for a dwelling are power, waste management and physical protection. On top of that we like partitioned living spaces, and to keep our stuff ordered. If we start heading down the automated communist utopia route I...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    Children, families and the rights of parents to inflict a f'd up world view/immune system/norms on future adults, and the nature of adulthood. As above, but animals, a future where raising, torturing and murdering millions of sentient beings a day,...
  • Commented on Canned Monkeys Don't Ship Well, the Remix Version
    I like the sail beam. To go double good fast you can then fire captured bits of sail back towards home (avoiding shooting down your incoming sails of course)....
  • Commented on Test Case
    Not a lawyer, and going to ignore the adversarial back pack stickers (mine!). If the car wasn't safe to operate in the environment and for its intended purpose then I would think the manufacturer would be up for criminal and...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    An it's (pretty powerful) computers all the way down high point from 2015, installing Linux on a hard drive. http://spritesmods.com/?art=hddhack I once found that an 8pin FT232R USB-485 converter was actually a sawn of microcontroller (still re-programmable!). On the baseband...
  • Commented on The crazy years
    I think that would take a pretty big mental form most Americans to even understand was really going on if something like that kicked off. Traditionally most Americans honestly believe that they are all billionaires that just haven't found their...
  • Commented on The crazy years
    On the core topic. In Turkey 30,000 people's life ruined because a tracking pixel was mixed into other applications along with a crypto chat app, apparently the developers wanted to muddy the waters and didn't count on Erdogan just sending...
  • Commented on The crazy years
    It also makes for great memes about main stream media not getting it....
  • Commented on Dude, you broke the future!
    I love the last question (or rambling comment), which cuts to the bone of this, she had to rejoin Facebook because it was a good at what it does. We won't be destroyed by bad tools, but by really really...
  • Commented on What can possibly go wrong?
    This is what both excites me and scares the crud out of me with self driving cars (and their reliance on deep learning). They do see everything, in multiple spectrums at 120fps, and are going to be inherently more conservative...
  • Commented on What can possibly go wrong?
    As part of an exercise for new graduates when dealing with the media I ask if they have ever personally known the details of a story that they later read/watched about in the mainstream media (other than sports). Then I...
  • Commented on Silence is ending (soon)
    I'd be very hesitant to use laser guided anything if the other side is a first world army. I've seen how the Apache responds to being tagged by a laser and I doubt the guys on the ground lived to...
  • Commented on Burn The Programmer!
    I should also say, it's not that any particular library is hard to use, its that you will use it once, on a project which will last for a maximum of 3 months, and need to support IOS, Android and...
  • Commented on Burn The Programmer!
    It depends a lot on the library, have a look at the provider model for something like Microsoft Media Foundation, or god forbid QT with chromium. Simple old, well documented library with a single function hell yes, go nuts. Configure...
  • Commented on Burn The Programmer!
    Of course there is also AI demonology : https://medium.com/intuitionmachine/the-alien-look-of-deep-learning-generative-design-5c5f871f7d10 Summon the demon, carefully frame your command and let it loose. Best you be careful in defining the scope and nature of the problem you want to solve or you might...
