My friend: My laptop is not working. Can you please fix it?
Me: Ok. I will take a look at it.
*After 1 hours*
Me: I think your hard disk has failed.
My friend: Can't you fix it? You always spend day and night on your computer. So, I think you can fix it.
Me: Sorry. I can't.
*Next day I went to his home*
His brother to my friend: You said he is a genious. He can fix anything related to computer. He can't do anything. I will take it to a best repair shop in the area.
Me: *walks out of his home*11
When a A.I. is gonna take over my job, Im gonna build a robot to steal the job of the A.I. and then kill it.
Maybe the robot will kill all of humanity, but yolo let's try it. Wanna see a real life terminator 😂4
(Warning: kinda long && somewhat of a political rant)
Every time I tell someone I work with AI, the first thing to come out of their mouth is "oh but AI is going to take over the world!"
It was only somewhat recently that it started being able to recognize what was in a picture from over 3 million images, and that too it's not that great at. Honestly people always say "AI is just if-else" ironically, but it isn't really that far from the truth, we just multiply an input by weights and check the output.
It isn't some magical sauce, it's not being born and then exploring a problem, it's just glorified-probability prediction. Even in "unsupervised" learning, the domain set is provided; in "reinforcement learning" which has gotten super popular lately we just have the computer decide which policy is optimal and apply that to an environment. It's a glorified decision tree (and technically tree models like XGBoost outperform neural networks and deep learning on a large number of problems) and it isn't going to "decide" to take over the planet.
Honestly all of this is just born out of Elon Musk fans who take his word as truth and have been led to believe that AI is going to take over the world. There are a billion reasons why it can't! And to top it off this takes away a lot of public attention from VERY concerning ethical issues with AI.
Am I the only one who saw Google Duplex being unveiled and immediately thought "fraud"? Forget phone scammers, if you trained duplex on the mannerisms of, for example, a famous politician's voice, you could impersonate them in an audio clip (or even video clip with deepfakes). Or for example the widespread use of object detection and facial recognition in surveillance systems deployed by DoD. Or the use of AI combined with location tracking and browsing analytics for targeted marketing.
The list of ethics breaches are endless, and I find it super suspicious that those profiting the most off of unethical AI are all too eager to shift public concern to some science fiction Terminator style takeover that, if ever possible, would be a long way out and is not any sort of a priority issue right now.12
Netbeans (yes, voluntarily), terminator and yakuake. Can't program without those! Oh yeah and Instant Answers from DDG.14
Build an ai who will be my friend...
And protect me like the terminator during the machine apocalypse2
Ever watched the Terminator films and wondered why the machines even have a UI with English words when they seek targets and we see that through their eyes?
It's not that some human uses it and needs UX.
I hate it when films do that.9
It's a job description for an entry level Software Developer role at Apple.
Basically they want
- A Front end dev
- A back end dev
- An iOS expert
- A Gimp/photoshop designer
- A streaming data expert
- An Oracle/Teradata expert
- A Kafka expert ( Not shown in the picture)
And on top of that the guy should be able to learn new tech faster.
Do they want a developer or a fucking terminator?6
Terminator's broadcast feature was sending duplicate input to all non-focused terminals yesterday, and it was pissing me off.
After some digging and research, it turns out the ibus daemon was the cause. If you're having this happen, track ibus down and kill it.2
What if an evil AI is sitting on top of blockchain ??🤔
It would be impossible to shutdown ?
virtual terminator !!!6
Install 18.04 they said. It will be fine they said...
Apperently it hates my intel graphics card. It was giving me artifacts already during installation. It didnt boot after installation and got stuck on a purple screen with the mouse on it.
Got past that with recovery mode. Googled the solution snd they said "move mouse while booting" yeah that doesn't help.
It also didn't recognize the other monitors connected to it and since it comes without unity now everything was not where I'm used to look for it.
3 hours of grub mangleing, driver installing and a unity installation later, it finally works.
Installed terminator and oh, look, one of the most used short cuts is overwritten by some emoji pick bs.
Longest ubuntu installtion ever and it almost fked up the 16.04 aswell which is in dual boot atm.
And before someone says use Arch: ubuntu is a project requirement and Arch is not supported by the tools we need to use.13
Me: I've never been so long without exercising (since before this, my first winter), I should get in shape now that this God forsaken weather is finally reaching livable levels.
(some time later at the gym)
Also me: You've always been in good shape, why stop with just chest, let's do some arms and shoulders.
(48 hours later, Monday morning)
I had to turn my whole torso to look if any car was coming while walking to the library, moved like terminator because of the massive neck muscle pain, suffered through the pain of setting up all my study material to the realize (just now) I can't even fucking look down to my notebook... Can I be more stupid?1
Why do u use Terminator !?
When u can create multiple terminals and arrange them in the window!
By the way Terminator does not look appealing! But it's choosed by many why!?9
So my friend texts me with the message, you're smart can you figure it out?
What he sent me was a picture of a post, probably from Facebook which said "skynet is working on making you the next Terminator" with a bunch of bytes following it.
So I decode the first letter using an ascII table and sent it to him, and I get the response WOAH Really!!!
Lol even though it's super simple, it make see feel like 😎.6
I'm never using the literal character version of null Terminator again. I just spent an hour debugging a crash. I used the /0 instead of \0 when I built the string. Are you fucking kidding me, why the fuck is /0 not highlighted by my ide, I mean fucking seriously. Numeric 0 literal for rest of my dayz1
When you say something about machine learning that's cool, and someone responds with a quote from Terminator or some other Hollywood bullshit that attempts to terrify everyone with an irrational fear of technology.2
I'm part of a robotics team in my highschool. We work on autonomous robots, which are driven with microcontrollers like the Arduino and "bare" Atmel chips.
Last year we were using a protocol called CAN. CAN is a bus which runs at 1Mbps and it is quite easy to connect devices together. (It's a bus ofc it is). BUT... it needs a terminator at the end, mostly 120 ohm.
Every year we are on a deadline and something broke on our current board and we needed to solder up a new one, but we couldn't find the 120 ohm terminator... ANYWHERE!
At end after searching for it in the workshop for 4h straight (12am- 4am) we finally found it, and soldered up the new board and guess what... it wasn't what we thought, the code was the problem.
After realizing the problem my teammate and I, in silence just stood up, packed our things and went home. Argh!2
I'm not a beefy dude, But I consider myself as a terminator 🔫 because when I find a BUG I fucking console log the shit out of it !
linux mint got wasted and rekt today. in a few hours, we have managed to install git, ssh, terminator and teamviewer. everything failed except for teamviewer. wowie,, i need more time to learn how git works tbh. we tried and tried and fucking tried over and over again until the terminaL WONT TYPE IN WHAT IM TYPING LIKE WHY ARE U REFUSING TO OBEY ME NOW KEYBOArd. the worst part is that i cant even SHUT DOWN because i cant even click on shut down. i had to force it using virtualbox. oh wellll, get ready linux.....
tomorrow is another day!5
" ; " The Actual Terminator
He'll be back coz apparently he gets lost a lot, if you know what I mean.
DEV dream journal: I dreamed about a decentralized A.I. that injected itself on every device and reprodused itself on a 3D printer. Well, in the end some sort of super quantum computer killed it tho. 🤣 should go out more often and stop watching terminator4
So my laptop broke recently, and I've been looking for a replacement, but everything is so expensive.
I was thinking of just buying something really lightweight for like 100 - 200 $, then putting linux on it (no gui) and running everything through the terminal. I basically want to be able to work on github projects with, maybe use minimal internet.
Vim + git is all i use for github projects anyways, and lynx would let me do the small amount of internet that i want.
My one concern is that itd be very nice to have a window manager (terminator, i3, etc), not sure exactly how that would work with no gui.
Any thoughts on this setup overall? Or specifically the wm part?12
Any terminator experts here?
I want to make a setup of multiple split windows starting things on launch. I got so far that I get all the windows with the layout option but I cannot launch what I want via custom commands.
I want to launch multiple ros launch files like that.
If you call the API function to lookup the name of a service it expects a buffer and the size of the buffer.
If the supplied size is smaller than the service name it returns the number of characters (excluding the null-terminator) of the service name.
You can allocate a buffer for the service name and call the function again to receive the service name.
Except now Windows wants to know the size of the buffer including null terminators.
That took me a moment to figure out.
If A.I steals all dev jobs then I will become physicist and build time machine like in terminator movie ;-)
I have a beast laptop
it was full specs except ram it was only 8
so now i bought +8 and got gat 16 ram
i named the laptop ARK (like noah ark)
now it can easily be called a terminator
The ending of: Terminator, The sarah conner chronicles.
I wish they didnt cancelled the show. It had a great story and every episode was exciting.
Recursion is pretty fun stuff, until you try to control how it works, like, properly... so it doesn't cause problems or repeats errors over and over again. Writing the logic that recreates it or controls the flow of it...? Is sort of what you could call 'a monstrous pain in the ass'. Because...
Why would anyone want to do such a crazy thing? Sorta similar to 'looking in a mirror', right? Lamba Calculus level stuff.
Well, when you're thinking "hey, wouldn't it be cool to make a hash table with next to no static entries...?" and you're thinking 'why ask myself that question, of course it fuckin' would be! Error proof my program? Fuck yeah! It'd sort of 'error proof the whole thing I'm workin on if I did that. Or like, basically every thing I work on! Active Directory? Check. GPO's? check. Registry validation? Check. Hash code and customized malware protection? Check.
It's as if it might be the answer to everything and yet, the devil himself is lookin at me like "Hey! Guess what!?! You almost had it, but ... almost only counts in horseshoes and handgrenades."
Well, I'm lookin back at him like "Well... you know what? Pst. I don't give up. I'll work on something else knowing I need to do it eventually. It's almost like I'm the fuckin terminator and I'm gonna complete this mission..."
Besides... All those failed attempts help me figure out something that works elsewhere. I'm just not sure what's worse... how meticulous I try to be? Or the fact that I'm stubborn as hell... I guess either way you look at it...?
Somebody somewhere is gonna appreciate the work I do. At some point anyway.7
