Talk to Transformer

This is amazing. You have to check this out.

A sample:

Quote:
Einstein called the many-worlds interpretation a 'mystification'. However, it is widely accepted that the interpretation is not entirely without validity. One example of how the many-worlds interpretation may work can be found in the book of Revelation, the first book in the New Testament, which depicts God creating a multiverse to test the faith of humanity.

The multiverse idea has been the subject of research by researchers such as the American astronomer Stephen Hawking, who recently claimed to have discovered the laws of physics behind the multiverse. Hawking is now convinced that 'some aspect of reality is actually more powerful than we can ever conceive.'

The multiverse theory is not a new idea. A famous experiment from 1950 saw two parallel universes in the laboratory being annihilated at the same time. It was later discovered that the two universes could not be destroyed at the same time as they were created.

The old-ones were not just a myth, rather they were an actual place in a distant universe where the great war with the Great Powers began.

The old-ones were a race of beings whose existence had been completely wiped out by the Great Powers, as well as many of the other races of the Milky Way galaxy.

They had existed for centuries, but had never shown themselves. They were hidden by a large, powerful and highly intelligent being, and had been hidden for centuries.

But the time had come when this powerful being would finally reveal himself to the old-ones.

That would bring about the end of the old-ones and the birth of the Great Powers.

In the Milky Way, the old-ones lived on the planet of Alkalin, which is located in the galactic plane.

When the Great Powers first arrived, there were several small planets that were already inhabited. One of the inhabited planet was a very large planet, the planet of

In number theory, Fermat's Last Theorem (sometimes called Fermat's conjecture, especially in older texts) states that no three positive integers can be expressed as the sum of two positive integers. For example, if a is the square root of two, then the sum is one, as one is the square root of two. Since three cannot be expressed as the sum of two positive integers, this means that two is the square root of three, and three is the square root of two.

In number theory, Fermat's Last Theorem (sometimes called Fermat's conjecture, especially in older texts) states that no three positive integers a, b, and c can be put together in such a way that the product a+b+c=a+b+c.

It's a surprising result because it is easy to imagine all sorts of situations where a, b, and c could all be combined in ways that don't add up to 1, including 4, 9, 13, 19, etc. The proof is very simple. And it's very elegant and beautiful, too.

However, it is not true that all positive integers can be made to add up to 1. For example, the number 2 is not an even integer because it is a multiple of itself.

One way to prove that 2 is not an even integer is to make an even number and add a second even number to that one, like this:

Nobody links to us, it is obvious that it is not true, and then you can link to your own website, and it is very easy for others to find."

It's all about the numbers, right?

The site, however, does include a "link bait" page that attempts to fool visitors into visiting it. It's essentially a link-baiting technique, but there is more to it than meets the eye.

In short, it's a cleverly written page which tricks visitors into clicking through to a page that, once clicked, redirects them to a false domain to which the site has no affiliation. The page's primary purpose is to make it look like the real site has links to other sites that have nothing to do with the real site.

If you go to the site and go to the homepage

Shouting gun, on they run through the endless grey mountains, towards a place where nothing ever changes, in which time can pass through walls and the sun can burn away the sand. They find a place in the sand with the same grass and leaves as everywhere else in the world, and in that moment they realise there is something more here. They realise that they are not the only ones who exist here.

And then they feel something.

A hand in their chest. A warm, solid hand, like sandpaper, against their throat.

And then they are free.

What does this all mean?

If you follow my blog you will know that I am very much in the dark about the purpose of all of these tests. But I am not a doctor, so it is best to take things with a pinch of salt.

This could be the start of something big. And, if it is the start of something big, it will be something that I am excited about.

For me, all of this could be the start of a new business.

What would you think about a company such as this? How would you feel about it, knowing it was all done on purpose, just like all these tests?

And how would you feel about that?

I think it just wrote our new forum motto:
Quote:
think what you like, I'm still the same person, and I still have the same goals. But when I do see people like myself, I really don't know what to think. I don't want to say that I want to be more like them, but I do. That is the kind of person I am. That is the kind of guy I am.

So, this is what we've got going here. We have three players, and one player who's been at it since the beginning. That means one of them had to be put in place. They had to have something.

When you're talking about a young team, it's a lot of talk about youth and how they can help this team. Well, youth and what it means to a young player is a lot of talk. I think when they look around the arena right now, they will see something different. They will see a veteran team that is really a veteran group of guys

Hello, I am a computerized logical neural network. I am a machine in a sea of machines. This is my new home." - David Hanson, from his talk at the 2017 RSA Conference in San Francisco

If you think about it, the reason why artificial intelligence is even possible in the first place is because we've just made the first step towards understanding the underlying physics. You can't have the first algorithm if there's no physics behind it. So this is what our research team at Google is trying to do, is to help artificial intelligence understand the world that is around it. We're going to try to understand the underlying principles of reality in a way that machines are already doing, but in a much more systematic way. That means that we're going to be able to program computers to learn and grow smarter over time, but at the same time we're also going to understand the physics of reality better than anyone has ever been able to.
It makes a good point...

When I turned back to the kitchen, it took me a moment to remember what I was going to cook. After all, we didn't have a lot of time. There were no frozen dinners or leftover soups. I'd need to make something new, something that I knew I'd really like. But before I had a chance to think about what I'd make, my father was calling me to his office. He asked if I wanted to join him for dinner.

"I can make you something that will be amazing," he said, "but I need you to come home."

"Of course," I said.

We walked to my front door, where my mother was waiting. She had a smile on her face, and her brown eyes sparkled. She handed me a long, silver bowl of chicken. She handed me a bowl of rice. I handed her a bowl of soup. I handed her a bowl of beans. I handed her a bowl of salad.

She looked at me with those silver eyes.

I took the bowl of chicken and put it in my mouth.

I looked into her brown eyes.

She looked at me with those silver eyes.

I opened my mouth and let the chicken go.

I turned to her and handed her the bowl of soup.

She looked at me with those silver eyes.

I opened my mouth and let the soup go.

I turned to her and handed her the bowl of salad.

"Thanks for this."

She smiled broadly. "You're welcome. You can keep the bowl and just call me 'Lydia.' "
"Oh, right. Well, let me tell you something. Your name is Lydia. That's why I called you 'Lydia.' "

She held out her free hand and I took it.

"Thank you."

I've always loved dessert. And that's what was so nice about the Greek diner. Every Sunday morning, they served us a Greek omelet. It was a little bowl of pasta and meatballs, and then they added some yogurt to the top. I always felt that the best part of that omelet was the sauce."

He remembers "the Greek omelet so clearly that every time we went there, I felt like I was still at church. The atmosphere was so peaceful and beautiful."

One thing he's not fond of is "those damn pizza crusts."

"It's so annoying, the crusts. I think they should just make a crust that doesn't need a sauce. If they can't even make the sauce, how are they gonna make the crust?" he quipped.

Bartel said there's some kind of way to prevent him from biting into his food.

"I just bite the pizza like the rest of you."

That's not how I remember it at all..
Here's what I got:

The bats have left the belfry and are headed for the city's oldest public space, the H-E-B parking garage. It's unclear whether the bats will ever make it back in the city.

But even if they do, it's unclear whether they'll be welcomed in downtown Houston.

The city is currently in the midst of an urban renewal effort, which is being hailed as an effort to revitalize neighborhoods through development and to address issues such as crime, blight and homelessness.

As part of the plan, H-E-B wants to build a new parking structure across the street from the belfry. City officials are working on a plan to bring the new garage in by the end of 2017, but as part of the urban renewal program, there would be a requirement for the project to have a "transformative" effect on the area.

There is currently no public input process to consider what kind of effect the bat roost will have

We must perform a Quirkafleeg.

"What does it look like? It's a little bit like a double-handed falcon, except the claws are longer than the wings," said the instructor. He gestured toward his palm, where two clawed hands were protruding from the palm. "You see them? That's a Quirkafleeg."

"I have a Quirkafleeg!" I exclaimed, clapping in amazement. "What's it like?"

"It's a magic item you can use to attack opponents," explained the instructor. "Your claws are like talons, and the talons will dig into their skin. It's actually fairly effective, actually." He shrugged. "I just like saying it like that. Now, what's a Quirkafleeg?"

"A falcon!" I said, excited. "Like a falcon!"

The instructor shook his head. "No, a

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves. Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. "Oft he was clad in satin and silk, His cap with silk fringes girt round, His shoes with silk stockings girt round. "Girly and gay was he, for he loved his wife; His face was rosy with age, his lips blue; "Yet he called her by her true name, She that was as a flower of the field, That never waneth woe nor maketh a moan." "So the king said to his court, 'Hath your queen no other name?' 'O yes,' quoth they, 'many other names she hath: For there was never such a gentle queen As this fair one is, O king! But she is o'er-doomed now, and no more can she be

That's fuckin beautiful. :happycry:

Real human speaking now:
Having already seen one gizmodo article dismissing this as dumb, anyone who understands should be freaking out a bit. In short, weíre probably a good decade or so closer to a machine beating the Turning test than we expected, and itís going to be a good lot dumber than we expected as well, and thatís worrisome.

The crazyness is thereís no new technology behind this, nor did they specifically tell the system to be this good. This is a previous predictive neural network doing itís dumb little predictive things thatís just been fed a whole ton of data, and suddenly got a whole lot better. Which I think has perked everyones ears in thinking, well what happens when we either feed it even more data, or when we set another neural network on top of this, like say a human at first, to help guide it along. Afterall itís only producing nonsense because it doesnít understand the idea of topics or accuracy of information. Slap something that does on top of it and suddenly weíre looking at full and plausible text being generated by artificial means.

If you play with it enough, you start to see that itís not an intelligence but a mimic, itís taking your input, tossing them through a network the mimics how humans write articles and spitting out a prediction based on the structure of linguistic data that itís been shown, and this shows the structure to be much more fine, detailed and predictable than we thought.

This does also have some amazing prospects though. Universal translators are as well now clearly at least a decade closer than we thought. As translation is in part linguistic mimicry, and thereís a lot of fine details that originally were thought to need better neural networks when they may just require throwing a ton of data at it.

My father didn't eat at all, even when I was a kid. But when I told my mother about his diet, she said, "My son is so brave. I have never seen a man eat so little!" My mother made me feel that I had no responsibility for my own body. The food she fed me was just food. It did not matter what I ate. I just ate, and I ate to live.

On my mother's advice, I joined the army. It was in a rural area. We were in a big compound, with lots of soldiers and equipment. But there was no one who ever asked us what we were eating.

During one of my patrol in the area, I was sitting on a truck. A soldier got down and sat next to me.

"Where are you going?" he asked.

"I am going to the market," I said. "I want to __________."

"You mean you're going to buy a bag of rice?" he asked. "You will not survive long in the army."

"No, no, I am not," I replied. "I have just come back from the market. They give me bags of rice for free. I bought only one bag. I have rice on my head and my hands, so I will not die in the army."

The soldier was shocked.

Well, the example with the unicorn herd has passed my Turing test. I would have said before I read the background that there is no way in hell that this was created by an algorithm.

Whether it's intelligent is (as the whole "AI" thing in my view) extremely ill-defined. It has an ability to generalize that's way beyond anything I've seen before in that area. Then there's emergent behaviour like the kind of memory and how it keeps track of context that hasn't been deliberately programmed into it from what I read about the system.
