Nothing says early winter in a well-managed city quite like re-spraining a tendon on a sidewalk that could double as a mirror.

Pēdējā laika EmDrive epopeja mani beidzot ir novedusi līdz rakstīšanai. Rakstu piebeigšu vīkendā, sagaidāms ir mikslis no īgnuma un fizikas.

Update: Raksts ir gandrīz pabeigts, tā pavisam pabeigšanu kavē tikai autora būšana zem konstantas analgētiķu iedarbības (sk. nākamo ierakstu). Droši vien rīt/parīt izdosies uzrakstīt noslēgumu, pārlasīt matemātiku un ieblogot.

Extensive and “less wrong” analysis of Trump, his supporters, and his critics by S. Alexander, recommended. Made me update on several points, on which will expand in later post[s] of my own.

Trīs pusnegulētas naktis, 19 izmainītas koda rindas, viena izlabota masīvi kretinējoša kļūda. Rezultāts: svaru matrices, kurās nulles vairs nav nevietā (t.i., visur). Uzvara!*

Apsveicu ķīniešus ar pirmo CRISPR tehnoloģijas pārbaudi uz pacientiem. Izskatās, ka arī ASV institūcijas beidzot ir sataisījušās dot zaļo gaismu šādai programmai. Sekosim līdzi.

Let us stand now, unbowed and unfettered by arcane doctrines born of fearful minds in darkened times. Let us embrace the Luciferian impulse to eat of the Tree of Knowledge and dissipate our blissful and comforting delusions of old. Let us demand that individuals be judged for their concrete actions, not their fealty to arbitrary social norms and illusory categorizations. Let us reason our solutions with agnosticism in all things, holding fast only to that which is demonstrably true. Let us stand firm against any and all arbitrary authority that threatens the personal sovereignty of One or All. That which will not bend must break, and that which can be destroyed by truth should never be spared its demise. It is Done. Hail Satan.

Ko lai tur piebilst.

Uz šī gada INCF kongresu es, laika trūkuma, darba daudzuma u.c. lietu dēļ, tā arī netiku, kas nozīmē, ka vajadzētu beidzot saņemties un ķerties klāt uzstāšanos video un slaidu skatīšanai. Dienas kārtībā ir 32 video, vidējais garums – 30 min. Ar šo vīkendu vajadzētu pietikt, ierēķinot piezīmju taisīšanu, ne pārmērīgu tempu un citu lietu darīšanu.

Ja [vēl] kādu tas interesē, video saraksts ir šeit.

Kad saku, ka “parakstos zem Šeina Lega intelekta definīcijas”, es domāju šo.

Foto no šī gada “Altius” grupas konferences “The Brain of the Future: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Automation, and Politics in the Age of Thinking Machines” Oksfordā. Daudz vairāk un tehniskāk par šo pašu tēmu var izlasīt Š. Lega monogrāfijā “Machine Super Intelligence”.

One can use CRISPR on fully grown neurons, it just has to be done indirectly. The key is to add an extra step. Namely, to use CRISPR to engineer better viral vectors for BL-OG, bioluminescent optogenetics.

This isn’t as difficult as one might think since it’s already possible to efficiently use bespoke viral vectors to affect very specific populations of neurons for optogenetics research. With BL-OG one could do it without any fiber optic cables attached to people’s heads.
