"Instead, we propose using the squared Frobenius norm of the Hessian as a smoothness energy"
They're just making this shit up as they go, aren't they?
My God this video is amazing.
The sublime use of complex technology for something totally absurd. I love it!
Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.
Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.
Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".
Watching BBC documentary on WWII.
"It's estimated that over 300,000 civilians died during a 6-week orgy of rape and murder, at the hands of the Japanese troops"
Five seconds later: "The worst incident was when they bombed an American ship and killed 50 crewmen"
What. The. Fuck.
The worst incident was 50 Americans killed, and not 300 fucking thousand Chinese??? WAT?
I'm enjoying some of the episodes in Love, Death & Robots, but I'm slightly disappointed that "adult" and "nsfw" apparently just means "as many naked women as the story will allow".
I mean, hetero guy here, I definitely enjoy naked women. But I find it ridiculous that they're fine with showing a fully exposed woman, but as soon as a dick is gonna be on screen they go "hold it right there! That dick ain't gonna ruin this shot!"
Meditation for skeptics
The exercise of meditation includes a lot of "acceptance" of how things are, without judging. And that seems to translate to everyday life, removing a lot of anxiety.
I only wish people would stop with the 2000 year old Sanskrit texts about meditation, and talked more about it in a no-bullshit scientific way. Because the thing bloody works, and all that wishy washy mystic stuff is keeping people away from it
Meditation for skeptics
But the most interesting so far are the psychological effects. Lots of people say it improves focus etc, and yes, I noticed some of that.
But for me the most interesting thing is it seems to remove a lot of the internal second-guessing. The impostor syndrome, the nervousness of talking to people you believe are smarter than you, it's all gone.
