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.

'Obelisks': Entirely New Class of Life Has Been Found in The Human Digestive System

Stanford University biologist Ivan Zheludev and colleagues argue their strange discovery may not be viruses at all, but instead an entirely new group of entities that may help bridge the ancient gap between the simplest genetic molecules and more complex viruses.

"Obelisks comprise a class of diverse RNAs that have colonized, and gone unnoticed in, human, and global microbiomes," the researchers write in a preprint paper.

Can astrology predict life outcomes? We tested it.

In our data Astrological sun signs had literally zero predictive ability across all 37 outcomes. The correlation coefficients, or ‘r values’, were all 0, meaning that the zodiac signs had no ability whatsoever to predict any of the 37 outcomes! 

Could it just be that these life outcomes are inherently unpredictable, so our study results tell us just about the unpredictability of life itself, rather than about the effectiveness of astrology? No, because we also collected the Big 5 personality test scores of our study participants, and as the chart below shows, using personality scores, we were able to predict life outcomes with a decent level of reliability. So the issue is not that these life outcomes are wholly unpredictable - it's that zodiac signs can't be used to predict them.

Four alarming charts that show just how extreme the climate is right now

 I know there are a million people sharing temperature anomaly charts and maps lately, but there's a good reason for that. This is totally bonkers and people who look at this stuff routinely can't believe their eyes. Something very weird is happening.

Drag Your GAN: Interactive Point-based Manipulation on the Generative Image Manifold

Through DragGAN, anyone can deform an image with precise control over where pixels go, thus manipulating the pose, shape, expression, and layout of diverse categories such as animals, cars, humans, landscapes, etc. As these manipulations are performed on the learned generative image manifold of a GAN, they tend to produce realistic outputs even for challenging scenarios such as hallucinating occluded content and deforming shapes that consistently follow the object's rigidity.

An Infinity of Choices

So I like the idea of being stingy with our goals for the new year. Make that New Year’s resolution to listen to fewer podcasts, to travel less, to never go camping. Pick things you explicitly won’t do. Your time is finite. A new year is not the time to pursue infinite goals; it’s a time to pick the important ones. And not everything can be important.

Concussions in professional boxing and MMA matches

According to a 2021 study of 60 boxing and MMA fights, 78% of the fights led to a concussion, and the fighter that sustained the first concussion ultimately lost 98% of the time.

Seems like strike-based martial arts amount to "last one to get a concussion wins".
