The cast goofing around; during production of Irvin Kershner’s The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
This is by far one of the most important things I’ve seen on tumblr because It describes things I was not able to
I’m finding i can fly, so high above with you ♫

Google’s Machine Learning Algorithms Outpacing Engineers’ Ability to Understand How they Work
“Google no longer understands how its “deep learning” decision-making computer systems have made themselves so good at recognizing things in photos.
What stunned [Google Software Engineer] Quoc V. Le is that the software has learned to pick out features in things like paper shredders that people can’t easily spot – you’ve seen one shredder, you’ve seen them all, practically. But not so for Google’s monster.
Many of Quoc’s pals had trouble identifying paper shredders when he showed them pictures of the machines, he said. The computer system has a greater success rate, and he isn’t quite sure how he could write a program to do this.
Google researchers can no longer explain exactly how the system has learned to spot certain objects, because the programming appears to think independently from its creators, and its complex cognitive processes are inscrutable. "
All those gigantic server farms… they’ve accidentally exceeded the critical synapse number, haven’t they.
Life is stirring in the depths…
okay, time to implement the skynet contingency
honestly I like this better than many other popular apocalypse options
probably doesn’t smell as bad
I’ve been warning people about the robot apocalypse but nooooo
MY FAVORITE APOCALYPSE! Are we going Skynet terminators or Cylons that’ll be the real question.
Tumblr is taunting me with how much I want this.
Dwarf Galaxy Caught Ramming Into a Large Spiral Galaxy
Observations with NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory have revealed a massive cloud of multimillion-degree gas in a galaxy about 60 million light years from Earth. The hot gas cloud is likely caused by a collision between a dwarf galaxy and a much larger galaxy called NGC 1232. If confirmed, this discovery would mark the first time such a collision has been detected only in X-rays, and could have implications for understanding how galaxies grow through similar collisions.
