Here are things I've created myself.
Play Reversi!

Play Reversi!

I added a Reversi (a.k.a. Othello) game to my site. The AI will improve in a few weeks, once the genetic algorithm I've written has had time to optimize the parameters.

Site update

There's a new page about my favorite illustrators, a page about my Java games (although it's difficult to get Java applets to run in browsers nowadays), I've added a cake recipe (in Swedish), and there's a new image in the portfolio.

I've made some corrections to the site code; some minor functions are still missing, but as of this update, the site seems to be working more or less as it should, and I'll start concentrating on adding more content.

Also: It turns out I had forgotten to include the file responsible for saving portfolio image ratings. Go rate my portfolio images!

I bought some comics!

I received a package today! For the first time in a long while, I've ordered comics from Yesasia and Amazon, including Åsa Ekström's new book about culture clashes and misadventures in Japan. Now all I need to do is to learn these stupid languages.

Site redesign

I decided to switch to a new layout before everything was ready, partly to force myself to finally get it done, and partly to stress myself out for no good reason. Come back in a week or so, and I'll have much more content up. You should probably be celebrating Christmas now anyway.

A Different Take: Our Robot Hellscape Awaits Us

Some downsides to having super-intelligent robots take over our jobs, even if they don't go haywire and harvest the solar system for raw materials.

Fooling Neural Networks in the Physical World with 3D Adversarial Objects

Fooling Neural Networks in the Physical World with 3D Adversarial Objects

Neural network based classifiers reach near-human performance in many tasks, and they’re used in high risk, real world systems. Yet, these same neural networks are particularly vulnerable to adversarial examples, carefully perturbed inputs that cause targeted misclassification.
(...)
Our work demonstrates that adversarial examples are a significantly larger problem in real world systems than previously thought. Here is a 3D-printed turtle that is classified at every viewpoint as a “rifle” by Google’s InceptionV3 image classifier.

Paul Fenwick comments:

Imagine hacking electronic billboards so they look like stop signs to cars, or speed signs with *much* faster speeds.

AlphaGo Zero

Remember AlphaGo, the first artificial intelligence to defeat a grandmaster at Go? A new version, AlphaGo Zero, taught itself to play Go from scratch, playing against itself and discovering which strategies worked, without any supervision or use of human data. After just three days, it became good enough to beat the original AlphaGo 100-0.

Gamers like PewDiePie are why I don’t play online

The toxic soup of general voice chat is self-selecting. It’s the default state of gamer chat at the most accessible level: Only those willing to share or accept a base level of hateful language remain. Everyone else elects to leave. Can you blame us?

The problem isn’t even the people saying these things; not entirely. The bigger problem is that the systems and general audience for these games are taught to tolerate it. And soon they’re not just tolerating it, they find it normal. And once it’s normal, it’s OK to take part, and anyone who is rightfully upset or opposed to it is accused of upsetting the status quo. 

To exist as a minority online is to have your resilience constantly called into question. As if communicating on social media and wanting to play games with friends and strangers should require deep reservoirs of endurance and strength.

I’m told I need to toughen up when I “complain” about the unending hate speech in online gaming. It’s the internet, what did I expect? We are always being asked to accept racial abuse by people who have no intention of changing the status quo.

“There’s way worse videos”: Today’s students on Rodney King

This is a generation of kids so numb to seeing videos of police beating, tasering, shooting, and otherwise applying the power of the state to unarmed and almost inevitably black or Hispanic men that they legitimately could not understand why a video of cops beating up a black guy (who *didn’t even die* for pete’s sake!) was shocking enough to cause a widespread breakdown of public order. Now we get a new video every week – sometimes every few days – to the point that the name of the person on the receiving end is forgotten almost immediately.

Adobe Sensei

By combining perspective effect editing, automatic, software-only photo masking, and photo style transfer technology, we’re able to transform a typical selfie into a flattering portrait with a pleasing depth-of-field effect that can also replicate the style of another portrait photo.

On the Impossibility of Supersized Machines

In recent years, a number of prominent computer scientists, along with academics in fields such as philosophy and physics, have lent credence to the notion that machines may one day become as large as humans. However, there are at least seven distinct arguments that preclude this outcome.
