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.11
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
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
So, Terminator : Dark Fate was in the cinema. Not as good as I had expected, and Hollywood's contemporary in-your-face leftist propaganda made it even weaker.15
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
What if an evil AI is sitting on top of blockchain ??🤔
It would be impossible to shutdown ?
virtual terminator !!!5
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?5
Terminator's broadcast feature is nice.
However, it's fragile as crap, and oftentimes sends duplicate characters, or adds garbage.
Quite awhile ago I posted a PSA on how to fix it (by killing ibus) but now it's broken for me again. And due to just how it broke, I've given up on fixing it. Instead of broadcasting one or two duplicate characters like before, it now hangs for many seconds because it's broadcasting THREE BLOODY MEGABYTES WORTH OF DUPLICATES with every keystroke.
How do you fail that hard?2
In Russian “and now it’s Vista, baby” (а стала Виста, бэйби) sounds just like the iconic Terminator catchphrase. There’s a great meme about upgrading from XP to Vista based on it5
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
today on the first day of the last year of college we learned about terminator
then we learned about biology
then i realized this is a course about AI1
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
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
So the other day my car broke down and since the shop wanted a lot of money I asked a friend of mine who knowns his way around cars for help.
Just when we finished repairing it I was like "whenever the Zombie apocalypse starts you'll be really useful, me instead won't be since no one might need computers anymore" . His response was epic:
"Nah, you will simply build a terminator with your computer skills and it will kill all Zombies!"
Now I am actually looming forward to the Zombie apocalypse!
TL;DR: us geeks will build terminators in case of zombies!3
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
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
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 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
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
" ; " The Actual Terminator
He'll be back coz apparently he gets lost a lot, if you know what I mean.
There must have been a person, a developer, probably in the 80th, that came up with the idea that reflection can read comments, so he can add annotations or if statements in comments.
I don't say we should shoot him.
But we should think about a terminator and a time travel program.3
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
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
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.
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.
Looking at AI and regarding the stop button problem. (computerphile video about the stop button problem: https://youtube.com/watch/...)
And looking at Skynet from Terminator.
There is some chance that the goal condition for the AI was that humans don't press the stop button.
And Skynet's biggest goal is to prevent humanity to press this button by exterminating humanity.
So, the film writers are actually this one time totally justified to have a heavily guarded room with nothing but a big red button which instantly brings victory for humanity when pressed.
Critics will hate this "deux ex machina", but computer scientists and AI researchers will be like: "Ehm, actually, that makes a lot of sense."
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.
not sure how to feel there :)
I find it technically very cool, moraly still not sure. I have terminator PTSD2
