E-Sports is still a taboo among many Hong Kong parents, who hold the outdated view that gaming is just waste of time with little reward.
(China just lost to France in the Quarter Finals of Overwatch World Cup. Team pictured below.)
How A.I. makes you rich: NVIDIA reached $200 for the first time today. It was $70 one year ago and $30(!) two years ago.
A protocol-level vulnerability allows an attacker to decrypt protected messages by attacking the four-way handshake of WPA1 and WPA2. Now more than ever: use HTTPS and VPN!
The sequential write speed of #SanDisk #Ultra #128GB #microSD is surprisingly fast, over twice that of the other 128GB card I have in hand, a Toshiba Exceria 128GB, in the Q32T1 benchmark. The figures seem too good to be true, but I have already repeated the tests 3 times for a total of 15 runs and the results still hold.
My students these days probably don’t know what these are.
一眾老師同助教神色凝重，到底喺度做緊乜？ (提示: 同Dr. Yung任教嘅數學課程有關。)
What are these teachers and teaching assistants being so serious about? (Hint: it’s related to the math course taught by Dr. Yung.)

Did you know that one of the pioneers in neural network was an econometrician? This was not an easy book to find, but it was well worth it. The book is a collection of articles written by Halbert White—as in *White* Standard Errors—that rigorously laid the theoretical foundation for the effectiveness of neural nets, including universal approximation, consistency and asymptotic normality of learned parameters. These results fill a much-needed gap for those with a background in statistics.
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.
