>Alon Altman, a senior software engineer at Google, pressured the company to sabotage President Trump’s Android phone, according to new evidence released via James Damore’s class-action lawsuit against the company. Calling on the tech giant to use the “full economic force [of] Google for good”, Altman also suggested deleting the gmail accounts of Trump, his administration, and his aides for “abuse.”

>Altman – who is still employed by the tech giant – also called on Google to blacklist “alt-right’ sites on the Google ad network (she falsely included Breitbart News in this category — an assertion refuted by a Harvard and M.I.T. study), and take down all “alt right videos” from YouTube. She also called on the tech giant to remove “neo-Nazi sites such as ‘The Daily Stormer'” from the Google search index.

>Altman has been employed at Google for seven years, and according to inside sources, is one of the most radical leftists at the company. She was named as one of the key architects of political discrimination at Google by a whistleblower we interviewed last August. As we have reported, she has previously called on the company to discipline or terminate any employee who agreed with James Damore’s viewpoint diversity manifesto, which argued that there was an atmosphere of political intolerance at Google. Google seemed to follow at least one of Altman’s suggestions, effectively kicking The Daily Stormer off the internet in August 2017, a move that was condemned even by the left-leaning Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). While Google did not follow Altman’s suggestion to remove Breitbart News from its ad network, its employees have begun advising clients to steer clear of Breitbart News, as we exclusively reported in February. More evidence that Google’s ad departments are trying to undermine the revenue of conservative sites has just been released via the Damore lawsuit. According to the lawsuit, when Google’s “Large Customer Sales” (LCS) team learned that the Canadian conservative news site The Rebel Media had been targeted by the far-left group Sleeping Giants, they used this as an excuse to advise clients to remove ad placements from conservative websites.

From the other BSD thread:

NetBSD

>Installation: curses interface, partitioning by hand

>Documentation: guide takes you step by step (very similiar to FreeBSD handbook)

>Filesystems: FFS

>Ports: (in NetBSD lingo a port is a supported architecture)

>Packages: lots (over platform independent pkgsrc)

>Hardware: BSD of choice for older platforms

>Full disk encryption: not a mature feature, somewhat possible with cgdroot kernel module

>Ease of configuration:

>Firewall: PF (customized OpenBSD version)

>Stand out features: lean and minimal, support for older platforms, kernel lua scriptable, portability, standards conformance is project goal

>Down/upsides: Linux binary emulation, legacy code, easy to get involved via wiki projects, support for ARM boards

>Release cycle: 2-3 years

I installed it on an old MacBook and basically everything worked out of the box, which was kinda unexpected. While I didn't try out the other BSDs on that machine, I'd imagine it would be a little more work. There's even a dedicated driver for old MacBook touchpads. Other than that it's more hands-on (good for people who want to get their hands dirty?), community is very welcoming for people who want to contribute (wiki, drivers, whatever), package system is platform independent, unique purpose is to have an easily portable system and port it to as many platforms as possible, has a large nip community for historical reasons. If you want to get involved it's probably a good choice.

There are things that make it unique, but its maybe not the most accessible of the bunch - is what I found it to be (desktop use). I'm not an experienced user, so take it with a grain of salt. There's at least one other NetBSD user that frequents this board. Solid system for people that want to do more than just "using" their machine.

Notch hacked Minecraft together in a weekend or so after he played Infiniminer. The code quality of Minecraft absolutely stinks and it used immediate mode which basically means that you send individual vertices to the GPU.

In modern OpenGL you use vertex arrays (don't know the exact name) to transfer vertices in bulk to the GPU and then just issue a draw call every frame with the id of the vertex array.

The rendering code and not the GC was the real reason why Minecrafts performance sucked.

>>901110

No. They rewrote the launcher in C++. The client/server is still Java. But instead of improving the code they managed to fuck it up even more.

They did this by introducing an immutable BlockPos class which consists of three floats (or doubles). They thought that passing around three variables was too verbose or some shit.

Anyways loads of BlockPos instances are created every frame. You can't mutate them so you have to create even more of them. If you have mods installed this also means even more instances are created. What this means is that Java has to clean up hundreds of mebibytes of garbage every second which results in huge GC pauses.

hardware level patching is not necessary. This is a flaw with the wpa protocol, software patches are sufficient.

>1) updated firmware for both access point and end device

only one of them needs to be patched, unless the AP is the vulnerable one AND is acting as a wireless client as well (e.g. a repeater)

>2) updated wlan controller drivers

>3) OS patch.

updated wpa_supplicant is literally ALL you need.

>tl;dr >90% of wlan devices out there are vulnerable to KRACK

nice made up numbers, 90% of normalfags use windows which wasn't vulnerable in the first place, the rest of desktop users are either a) mac users and will get automatic updates or b) linux autists and will have heard about this and updated wpa_supplicant. Which only leaves you with android and iOS, I'm unsure if these are patched through automatic updates, but either way you're unlikely to find unencrypted traffic coming from mobile devices.

I work on machine learning as a software engineer. I'll limit answers involving my own personal details, but I'm happy to answer questions about the industry.

A lot of people, including people working on ML, think that there is too much hype around ML, but in my opinion they are just being contrarians. I actually think that ML is right now the cutting edge of technology more so than anything else. The main short term advances I expect are self-driving cars, detecting disease from genetic and gene expression data, and robotics (e.g. agricultural, medical).

The issue is that a normal word embedding system or POS tagging system uses wordlists or dictionaries.

There are, definitely, Out Of Vocabulary words that contains important information that is not in the wordlist.

Assuming such words are being repeated heavily in the data set, extracting it would be relatively easy.

With misspellings of such words, extraction would be harder. POS tagging is a bigger of an issue that requires manual entries.

I think what you are saying is that taking a pre-trained embedding comes with its own vocab, which was trained on a specific dataset. The dataset used to train the embedding might have a different distribution of words to the one you are using. Therefore it would be good to somehow augment the dataset by creating a vocab of words that are frequent in your dataset but missing from the vocab of the pre-trained embedding. To be specific, you could use the pre-trained embeddings, and also train embeddings for the new words from scratch.

If this is what you meant, I agree so far, this is a good idea.

>With misspellings of such words, extraction would be harder.

Now we're back to my point in >>899096 (You) which is that there is no fundamental difference between misspellings and OOV words. In both cases you have a word the model can't recognize and must fall back on some other information, e.g. character ngrams. Do you agree that character ngrams contain useful information whether or not the word is misspelled?

>POS tagging is a bigger of an issue that requires manual entries.

>>900380

>To be specific, you could use the pre-trained embeddings, and also train embeddings for the new words from scratch

Using pre-trained word vectors sounds fun and all, BUT there will be issues for OOV words. FastTest uses n-grams, and people have tried sub-word embeddings.

https://github.com/yxtay/char-rnn-text-generation https://github.com/jarfo/kchar https://github.com/yoonkim/lstm-char-cnn https://github.com/carpedm20/lstm-char-cnn-tensorflow

The Idea of re-training Word Embedding model sounded sweet... but then you realized "I don't have that much resources to do re-training, just one GTX10xx graphic card and an i7".

Another issue is the problem of small datasets (e.g. 1000 twitter user's timeline spanning ~3 months), it probably won't change or add to the word embedding in that case.

The last thing is that IF you do have large datasets for social media, how do you clean up foreign languages? Emojis? ASCII/Unicode Art? Those things will bug up FastText training.

I think we've reached the limit of useful communication on technical matters. You clearly think misspellings are important but I'm not understanding your reasoning, and generally I'm having a hard time understanding what you're saying. My general advice would be to consider standard methods and not assume that you have specific insights on why standard methods won't work. It reminds my of a project I did on NLP in grad school, where I had a very non-standard approach, and the feedback I got from the teaching assistants was that my approach was very interesting, but performed very poorly compared to the other students. The lesson I took from this was that good, intuitive ideas sometimes don't pan out in practice.

As I mentioned earlier, I consider myself a centrist, but I think people on the alt-right/far-right are necessary to counterbalance the far left so I wish you luck.

Another thing to consider is that ML is only as good as it is useful. I think a lot of the work on ML related to politics is not directly useful and only serves propaganda purposes. It's possible that all the ML that the ADL, SPLC etc are doing serves no practical purpose, but helps spread the idea that there is a well defined notion of "hate speech" or "alt-right". After all, if ML can detect "hate speech" that must mean "hate speech" is a real thing, right? Similarly, the (((coincidence detector))) app was not particularly useful, in my opinion, but it helped spread the message that there is a well defined group of people who consistently (and somewhat openly) advocate against the interest of White/European people.

In terms of propaganda value, I don't see an obvious project where ML can help the right. But in terms of practical value, I see one clear project which is evading bans on twitter, facebook etc. So I would encourage you to focus on that, and again, to try to stick to standard techniques.

>>900884

>You clearly think misspellings are important but I'm not understanding your reasoning

The reasoning is that, unlike Word Embedding, where there is a ways of accepting misspellings and OOV words in a fuzzy manner (Fasttext with n-grams), currently there are NO methods of POS tagging that CAN handle OOV and/or misspellings within mainstream NLP packages like SpaCy, NTLK and others (stemming does not count as POS information is stripped).

As I said

>I think POS is important when using writeprints for human identification, which could double as a metric on predicting generalized user behavior, personality and sentimentality.

>As I mentioned earlier, I consider myself a centrist

I was referencing the "Urban Dictionary" method of vocabulary spotting, my embarassing example is meant for other project.

>Another thing to consider is that ML is only as good as it is useful. I think a lot of the work on ML related to politics is not directly useful and only serves propaganda purposes.

That is some painful truth right there

No one talked about it being outdated, also GTK hasn't been the GIMP Tool Kit for ages now, grandpa.

Merely an argument for Photoshop being better suited to photographers, hardly an argument for GIMP being the literal worst thing ever.

The rest are valid critiques, but they hardly apply to GIMP only.

What point m8? I replied to a LARPer who said "C for literally everything that isn't done with Python." I don't need to defend Scheme here. I don't pretend it's a language for everything.

Well I don't, so it's already not everyone.

All of the "GC-less Lisps" I'm aware of, while quite fascinating in a Rust-like way, are pretty obscure and undeveloped, probably because it's necessary to break so many basic assumptions of (and so much compatibility with) the language that it's questionable whether or not they can really be called Lisps.

There's also still the issue of the megs of suspicious looking interpreterslibraries glued to "compiled" binaries.

I've been looking into the Steam Link a bit more and found this

>WARNING: Steam Link devices will only boot with a kernel signed by Valve. If you attempt to replace the kernel with an unsigned binary you will void your warranty and render your Steam Link unbootable.

This thing is even worse than I thought.

I don't consider mobile card game shit to be 'actual games' compared to what they used to make.

A simple relay wouldn't have OpenGL ES 2 and SDL 2 support in its SDK. "Littlefoot" was intended to become a cheap low powered console similar to the Ouya and Android based consoles at the time to create a catalog of simple games alongside PC game streaming that they'd offer on their Steam App which would later be installed on most smart televisions and combine with their convoluted mobile strategy.

This interview from 2013 gives a good rundown of what was going on

>So this [Steam Box] is called "Bigfoot" internally, and we also have "Littlefoot." [Littlefoot] says "what do we need to do to extend this to the mobile space?" Our approach will be pretty similar. We also think there’s a lot that needs to be done in the tablet and mobile space to improve input for games.

It's absolutely amazing that, during the extensive nadir of the console market at the tail end of the zombie 7th-gen into the extremely slow and unenthusiastic launch reception of 8th-gen, all Valve would've needed to do is make the Steam Machine OEMs sell decent price-competitive prebuilts targeting the console market directly. All those $200-$500 "console killer" builds stickied on /r/PCMR could've been sitting in normalfag brick & mortar outlets, running games better than the consoles beside them on the shelf, with identical prices. Consoles would've died and stayed dead in 7th-gen.

But instead, Steam Machines were "muh premium console" $1k-$3k memes, apparently because Valve's idea of a low end option was the "smart TV"/cellphone shit you talked about, and now gaming PC prices are shot all to hell compared to consoles thanks to DRAM pricefixing and cryptoponzi miners.

Hardware GC is still GC, with all that entails. I mean, there were "Java machines" too, and they still suffered the problems inherent to such languages.

And those languages you linked, while interesting in their own right, much like Rust, are of questionable compatibility with and relationship to Lisp.

Is it me, or are GPUs suddenly becoming cheaper? Pic related is a Sapphire RX Vega 56 Nitro+ which went from 800€ to 750€ in less than a day. Cryptoniggers calling it quits?

good fucking god, 750+€ for a Vega 56.. and I am glad I bought my RX480 for only 250€ back in 2016

Those $300 cards used to dip under $100, and should be even cheaper by now:
