Wrapping up the paper tonight/tomorrow morning. Took a bit longer than I'd have liked for just 12 pages but oh well, shift happens, I learn.

Atgriežoties pie dziļo perceptronu “sapņu” tēmas — tagad ir pieejams arī oriģinālais kods attiecīgā veida attēlu ģenerēšanai. Tiem, kas nevēlas nodarboties ar palielas bibliotēku pakas instalēšanu (kur daļa no tām, iespējams, nedarbosies uz Windows), reizēm (lapa nav stabila) ir pieejams arī online serviss ar to pašu.

Šis ir veltījums visiem tiem, kuri uzskata, ka ir kompetenti runāt par fiziku pēc dažu pseidozinātnes žurnālu/blogu izlasīšanas (līdzīgas shēmas vajadzētu arī citām zinātnes disciplīnām).

Mostly I prefer to think of myself as a Reasonable Adult who makes Reasonable Adult Decisions and does Reasonable Adult Things, but then sometimes the Gods of the Market Place figure out ways to subvert that, and they are not getting one iota less proficient at their craft as the time goes by. Consider Death Wish.

Synthetic biology has the potential to make organisms more resistant to radiation or temperature extremes. You can mix and match genes and do all sorts of things that if you were breeding [organisms] would take forever. Say we find a planet, and it has a certain pH, temperature, and radiation regime. That’s where we take up the challenge and go into the lab. We’ll say, “All right, let’s start with this one that can live at low pH and high temperature. Can we add the radiation resistance?” Then, we can go back to the astronomers and say that [habitability] is not impossible, because we just made something in the lab like that last week.
