講開人工智能,業界泰斗吳恩達教授有關深度學習的免費網上課程在中國已經開始了,比美國早了近兩星期。若你有興趣認識人工智能為何物就萬不能錯過。
While we on the topic of AI, do you know that Andrew Ng’s online course on deep learning is already available in China, two weeks ahead of its official launch in the United States? It’s a very telling sign on how much a leader China is in the development of AI. I highly encourage anyone interested in knowing what AI really is about to take the course. You get to learn from one of the most important figures in the field, how much better than that can you get?

P.S. It’s also interesting that Andrew chose an economic topic as the very first example.

社評﹕AI革命席捲全球 政府須積極回應 – 20170901 – 社評 – 社評 – 明報新聞網

「人工智能」是今年最熱的議題,人云亦云的情況和三兩年前「大數據」不遑多讓。香港的「AI教育」其實不差:很多中小學都有Lego機械人隊。問題是學生無論多喜歡製作機械人,最終選擇以數據科學作為職業的數目相當少。這一來是因為香港的大學學位分配由政府主導,二來過去二十多年來政商界對科技的不重視,已經使香港的高科技產業遠遠落後週邊地區。
以香港科技積弱的程度,我相信新加坡和深圳一點都不擔心來自香港的競爭。當社會情況每況愈下,香港最大的優勢恐怕快要剩下作為走資港的地步了。

 

《喵力遊戲》第七季:舅父舅母要去近兩星期旅行,昨天晚上把8A貓貓的兩個表弟帶了過來寄宿。這兩個不速之客到底會為原來由兩大陣營把持的八A特洛帶來甚麼樣的腥風血雨呢?

MKL Limited to 1 Thread in Anaconda

If you have used the preload trick to use Math Kernel Library (MKL)  with an early version of Anaconda, you will find that under Anaconda 4.4 MKL is limited a single thread no matter what settings you enter. The solution is to remove the LD_PRELOAD entry for MKL, log out, log back in and you should be good to go.

今日去旺電入貨, 店員話掘coin堀到啲高階顯示卡全部貴曬,有錢都未必有貨。(這並非投資建議。)
A salesperson of a major local computer-component retailer says that the popularity of cryptocurrency mining has drained pretty much all the local supplies of high-end graphics cards. (This is not an investment advise.)

「茄丈」、「冬OT」、「少田」、「白才」…每次見到茶餐廳單上嘅中文,我就會想像幾百年後嘅語言學家同考古學家會係咁出論文嘗試去理解啲字嘅含意。
Homophones are very common in Hong Kong restaurants.
