Interesting, in 2019 JetBrains saw 87% of Python devs using Python3, up from around 75% last year
Really interesting paper exploring adversarial inputs to ML models: https://arxiv.org/abs/1905.02175
* It's a property of the input data, not the training
* You can even train a model on non-robust features and obtain a model that works well on the original input data!
It is proven! I am seanlane on Keybase: https://keybase.io/seanlane/sigchain#1d21116ce6ef440ca3d0c2eeaa7199c32b9831f951b671bf12c0c5030cc037a60f
Cool new GitHub project, collect your info and data from various sources and display locally on a chronological timeline:
Info for new users: if possible, please add a quick description to the images you're posting, it helps our friends who user some #Accessibility tools like screenreaders! Most apps have support for it, the webview definitely does, and it doesn't need to be too much info.
Looks like I'll be switching over to Syncthing/Nextcloud sooner than I thought:
Use Dropbox on Linux? If you use any filesystem than unencrypted ext4, they're dropping support for your system in November: https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Syncing-and-uploads/Linux-Dropbox-client-warn-me-that-it-ll-stop-syncing-in-Nov-why/m-p/290065/highlight/true#M42255
So, we got to the phase of having papers about sentiment recognition in Mastodon?
Feynman technique - a simple and powerful way to rapidly learn and retain new concepts.
1. Write down the name of concept you're trying to learn.
2. Explain it in plain English, as if you were teaching it to a new student.
3. Identify things you couldn't explain well, re-read the source material and research them. Try explaining again until these knowledge gaps are gone.
4. Simplify your explanation, get rid of technical terms and use simple analogies. ELI5.
With the death of CrashPlan, we had to move our backups elsewhere. Ended up using restic, rclone, Google Cloud Storage, and others to get it done, and it's working great so far.
Wrote up the process as a (work-in-progress) blog post here, if there's any interest:
Fun fact, Google has a 12 month, $300 credit for their cloud services, so depending on your storage needs, you can get free backups for a year.

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
