But hey, at least they are garbage collected!

So wassup, dude. I hope you find a way to make good use of the summer. Run and sun!

It's not even necessary to make trade-offs anymore. The age of computational mobility truly is fantastic.

That's why I'm not fond of Python for large (i.e. real) codebases. Mypy makes it a lot nicer.

Agreed. It's a shame it's necessary if you want to use decent ML libraries.
It looks like we can upgrade to Python 3 sometime soon though, which thankfully has slightly more sane typing options.

Yesterday I chastised my coworker for writing a function with 2 different possible return types. I'm working on an interesting ML project right now, more to follow soon.

Awesome. Machine Learning is such a fascinating field, I'd love to hear more what you guys got yourself into.

I remember, 20 years ago when I was playing around alot with Half-Life 1, the maybe coolest part aside from mods was how active the bots community was. Somehow, HL1 was especially well suited to write your own bots for it. And so you saw all kinds of shit going down, and I loved testing them all out. So inspiring. You could even run several different bots at once, together or competing. There were even people experimenting with first simple neural networks for some decision making. So cool.

I still think AI is the next big thing for games too. First it was graphics, then physics, next gotta be AI, what it's all about.

And then that stuff is so cool for so many things other than gaming, it's some mind blowing shit for sure.

This just in: Roger Federer won Wimbledon for the eighth time, at almost 36 years old. Unreal, you gotta be fucking kidding me.

Looks like numpy ndarrays are as far as typing goes. You can't actually specify what's the datatype of the array in a function signature. That makes me sad.

Google & Co are becoming a problem. Time for them and their cronies to join the heap of corpses ala AOL, Yahoo, etc. Once again there gotta be some smart start-up to take advantage of their stupidity, right?

lol@culture war

Not a problem, just a symptom. Yes, I'm aware I'm linking to the Jewish Autism Nazi psychiatrist.

I don't even know what's more annoying, an ever more radicalized culture war, or large monopolistic entities trying to steer it their way.

The elites are always looking for a justification to implement large structures of censorship. Be they government, or companies so large and influential you may as well call them government, or some weird cronyism of it altogether.

Twenty years ago, it was all about protecting the children, then maybe it was about fighting terrorism, now their hook is protecting the women and fighting racism. Whatever it is, whatever sounds good enough. All you need is someone calling for your help, that's the power in your hands. And once you got that, you can do whatever.

And now Google is building the most powerful AI in the world to do their bidding.
While cleansing any dissenting viewpoints within their company.
Already test cleansing Wrong-Think everywhere.

You know, sometimes you sit there and wonder, maybe you should just let these stupid fucks have it their way. Let them have this fantastic future they so desperately wish for by any means. Maybe I really should just do them the favour and shut up, since it is guys like me who stand in the way of their great progress. Maybe I should just lay back and enjoy the last show. Sometimes it seems there is nothing worth saving anymore.

I'm starting to think similar about the immigration issue. Just let them have it their way. All the way.

I already consider converting to Islam, wouldn't want to offend the new majority culture.

I might become the greatest fan. Might miss the porn and beer and schnitzel,

but watching the liberation of women in front of my eyes definitely will be worth it.

Well, anyway.

You would have thought that the subversion of the universities is bad enough, but turns out it may be even worse in the big tech companies by now, via their human resource departments.

The other problem is, these tech companies got nothing better to do than social engineering on world scale. They seem clueless what else to do with their money.

And the solution to everything, is, of course, as usual, Marxism. First order of business, eliminate competitive market by monopoly, then eliminate freedom of speech in your customers.

So much for their motto "Don't be evil". Funny how this changes meaning now. It seems addressed more so at their audience than themselves. They are moral coding you.

Welcome to the Goolag.

Blizzard released a powerful API for SC2 to develop AI. Anyone can make bots now. So that's cool. Supposedly it's the same interface DeepMind is using.
There already was something like that for SC1, someone hacked up a bot module, and teams of university students were competing in bot tournaments.
Speaking of which, they just released the remastered edition of SC1. HD graphics looking nice. Can't imagine enduring that UI design anymore though.

I thought about how cool it were if they also made remastered versions of their other games. But not sure how much of an option that really is. SC1 makes more sense because of Korea e-sports legacy I guess.
Though I hear War3 is still quite popular in China, so who knows. I think that WC3 held up surprisingly well for such an old 3d game. But what I really mean to say is, it holds up better than most other 3d games of that era.
Yet it still doesn't look exactly good anymore to me either. For example, I find all this texture stretching very jarring. I'd say all the 2d games aged better. I'd say the pixel art of War2 aged best. It's crisp and stable and pleasing.

Sonic Mania just got released as well. old school back to the roots gameplay and graphics. They say it's the best in the series. After all these years of 3d trash versions.



Doesn't seem to need an HD upgrade at all.
