But hey, at least they are garbage collected!

:lol:

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.
