Exploring latent space of deep networks to find stimuli that maximally activate neurons in the visual system. This is a long way from what was happening in my PhD days...
New pre-print on #bioRxiv 'Evolving super stimuli for real neurons using deep generative networks'. With @HombreCerebro@twitter.com, @WillXiao1@twitter.com, @Till_S_Hartmann@twitter.com, @firstname.lastname@example.org, and @email@example.com
People in groups are only able to see the value of something new in retrospect.
This is the VR I've been waiting for.
The embargo on Quest reviews lifted at 10:30a this morning, and there's no one more diligent & comprehensive at hardware reviews than @RtoVR@twitter.com's @firstname.lastname@example.org. He calls it the 1st great standalone headset. I concur. It's an impressive engineering feat by @email@example.com.
What would a maximally resilient, unflinchingly modern lifestyle look like? One in which all the basics were ensured, but which eschewed back-to-land nostalgia, anti-tech, and all of the other baggage?
Cities are the future: they hold an increasing percentage of the global population, they offer more opportunity and higher quality of life, and they enable much lower environmental footprint per capita.
But city dwellers are much more dependent on supply chains and infrastructure for basic "life support". As the world becomes more unsettled and climate disruption increases, will those systems adapt in time?
