Iegādāju krēslu. Mugurkauls (kas, par spīti sekmīgajam remontam, pēc garām rakstīšanas stundām mēdz sajusties nelāgi) pagaidām novērtē ļoti atzinīgi.

Piebeigta eksperimentu sērija (neskaitot datu analīzes un rezultātu apkopošanas daļu, bet par to es sākšu domāt rīt kaut kad droši vien rīt), lielākoties nodots projekts, izveikta pēcdarba dzerstīšanās ar sarunām par visa pastāvošā veltīgumu™, AI, WBE, WTF un citiem saīsinājumiem ([info]shiry, [info]ctulhu: grāmata). Not too bad, as days go.

Neuroscience is like:

  • Trying to learn computer graphics by playing lots of video games (behaviour studies);
  • Trying to explore the file system by looking at a computer with night-vision goggles (MRI);
  • Trying to learn network architecture from a packet stream without knowing what a computer is (electrophysiology);
  • Trying to learn CPU architecture by soaking a laptop in acid, slicing it with a band saw, and then studying the pieces under a microscope (connectomics);
  • Trying to construct cohomology theories by using nothing but the category of sets (explanations of high-level cognition by studying raw neural circuits);
  • etc.

And, despite all that, all of these things have led us, over the course of just a century, from zero to brain simulations.

Politika nokauj prātu, bet te nu es esmu, pāri galvai ierastajos darbos un ar tapšanas stadijā esošu nepārprotami politiska satura rakstu/analīzi. Citās ziņās – tuvojas sarunu festivāls “LAMPA”, atgādinājums sev sākt aktīvi gatavoties (ar pasīvo gatavošanos ir vairāk vai mazāk tikts galā).
