What a Deep Neural Network thinks about your #selfie

quote [ Convolutional Neural Networks are great: they recognize things, places and people in your personal photos, signs, people and lights in self-driving cars, crops, forests and traffic in aerial imagery, various anomalies in medical images and all kinds of other useful things. But once in a while these powerful visual recognition models can also be warped for distraction, fun and amusement. ]

Miami, the great world city, is drowning while the powers that be look away

quote [ "But global warming is occurring. That is absolutely unequivocal. Since the 1950s, the climate system has warmed. That is an absolute fact. And we are now 95% sure that that warming is due to human activities. If I was 95% sure that my house was on fire, would I get out? Obviously I would. It is straightforward." ]

If South Florida sinks, where will all the crazy news come from?

The LA Times uses robot reporters

quote [ Ken Schwencke, a journalist and programmer for the Los Angeles Times, was jolted awake at 6:25 a.m. on Monday by an earthquake. He rolled out of bed and went straight to his computer, where he found a brief story about the quake already written and waiting in the system. He glanced over the text and hit ?publish.? And that?s how the LAT became the first media outlet to report on this morning?s temblor. ?I think we had it up within three minutes" ]
