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.

DALL·E: Creating Images from Text

We’ve trained a neural network called DALL·E that creates images from text captions for a wide range of concepts expressible in natural language.

Need an illustration of a baby daikon radish in a tutu walking a dog, or a stained glass window with an image of a blue strawberry? DALL·E will generate one for you!

Face masks considerably reduce COVID-19 cases in Germany

As face masks became mandatory at different points in time across German regions, we can compare the rise in infections in regions with masks and regions without masks. Weighing various estimates, we conclude that 20 d after becoming mandatory face masks have reduced the number of new infections by around 45%. As economic costs are close to zero compared to other public health measures, masks seem to be a cost-effective means to combat COVID-19.

AI triumphs at solving protein structures

Artificial intelligence (AI) has solved one of biology’s grand challenges: predicting how proteins curl up from a linear chain of amino acids into 3D shapes that allow them to carry out life’s tasks. Today, leading structural biologists and organizers of a biennial protein-folding competition announced the achievement by researchers at DeepMind, a U.K.-based AI company. They say the DeepMind method will have far-reaching effects, among them dramatically speeding the creation of new medications.

Do the Real Thing

Do the real thing and stop doing fake alternatives.

Consider one person who wrote to me saying she turned down a job working in French. She didn’t feel her French was good enough yet. So instead, she planned to listen to podcasts at home every day until she was ready.
 
You know what would have helped her get good at French? Working at the job in French.
 
Or consider another person I spoke with who wanted to get better at writing music. He had come up with a complex analysis project. He was going to do a deep dive into past hits, figuring out what made them great. In all this complexity he ignored the obvious, real thing he should be doing: writing more songs.
