Play Reversi!

I added a Reversi (a.k.a. Othello) game to my site. The AI will improve in a few weeks, once the genetic algorithm I've written has had time to optimize the parameters.

Site update

There's a new page about my favorite illustrators, a page about my Java games (although it's difficult to get Java applets to run in browsers nowadays), I've added a cake recipe (in Swedish), and there's a new image in the portfolio.

I've made some corrections to the site code; some minor functions are still missing, but as of this update, the site seems to be working more or less as it should, and I'll start concentrating on adding more content.

Also: It turns out I had forgotten to include the file responsible for saving portfolio image ratings. Go rate my portfolio images!

I bought some comics!

I received a package today! For the first time in a long while, I've ordered comics from Yesasia and Amazon, including Åsa Ekström's new book about culture clashes and misadventures in Japan. Now all I need to do is to learn these stupid languages.

Site redesign

I decided to switch to a new layout before everything was ready, partly to force myself to finally get it done, and partly to stress myself out for no good reason. Come back in a week or so, and I'll have much more content up. You should probably be celebrating Christmas now anyway.

MuseNet

We’ve created MuseNet, a deep neural network that can generate 4-minute musical compositions with 10 different instruments, and can combine styles from country to Mozart to the Beatles. MuseNet was not explicitly programmed with our understanding of music, but instead discovered patterns of harmony, rhythm, and style by learning to predict the next token in hundreds of thousands of MIDI files. MuseNet uses the same general-purpose unsupervised technology as GPT-2, a large-scale transformer model trained to predict the next token in a sequence, whether audio or text.

Why I'm an Effective Altruist

Next year, we’re aiming to donate fifteen percent of our income instead of ten; by coincidence, that means we would be able to save fifteen children instead of ten. Half a classroom. You’re a hero, if you rescue half a classroom from a fire.

And we can do that next year, and the year after that, and the year after that.

(...)

Whenever that voice in my head that talks about how I’m a worthless stupid failure who doesn’t deserve to exist gets too loud, I count up the children I’ve saved.

I’m a worthless stupid failure and I’ve saved a dozen kids and nothing and no one will ever be able to take that away from me.
 
In terms of a purpose in life and a sense of accomplishment, you could do worse.

Better Language Models and Their Implications

We’ve trained a large-scale unsupervised language model which generates coherent paragraphs of text, achieves state-of-the-art performance on many language modeling benchmarks, and performs rudimentary reading comprehension, machine translation, question answering, and summarization — all without task-specific training.

EU Copyright Directive Has Been Made Even More Stupid, And Some Are Still Trying To Make It Even Worse

According to the current proposal, nearly every company that allows comments on their website will have to compare every comment submitted to every copyrighted piece of media ever, or they will be legally liable. MEP Axel Voss is pushing for the law to become even more draconian.

Spiders blamed after broken siren played creepy nursery rhymes randomly at night to UK townsfolk

A tormented mother living in Bramford Road with her two young children has been woken on an almost nightly basis by a tinny, distant rendition of ‘It’s Raining, It’s Pouring’. She said the threatening undertone of the song had left her frightened and questioning whether she was imagining things. After months of torment, she finally reported the unusual complaint to Ipswich Borough Council.

Said the council, “The sound is only supposed to act as a deterrent for opportunistic thieves that come onto our property, and it’s designed only to be heard by people on our private land. We are now aware of the problem - the motion sensors were being triggered by spiders crawling across the lenses of our cameras and it looks like we’ve had it turned up too loudly. We’ve spoken to the resident who brought it to our attention and adjusted it so this shouldn’t happen again.”

5 Minutes That Will Make You Love Classical Music

I posed a deceptively simple question to our writers and editors, as well as some artists we admire: What are the five minutes or so — longer than a moment, shorter than a symphony — that you’d play for a friend to convince them to fall in love with classical music?

What Do Happy Teens Do?

Activities that involve being with others face-to-face (social interaction, religious services, volunteer work, and even going to movies) are linked to more happiness, and those that involve being alone or on your phone (social media, internet, listening to music, being alone) are linked to less happiness.
