Matrix with pypy Show more
So I got matrix-synapse to sort of work with pypy and saw the cpu utilization decrease by half.
However, there's some weirdness where certain federated rooms cannot be added. It generates an IndexError. However, if I restart with regular python and then add the room, and restart with pypy again, I can talk in the room, receive updates and everything. I just can't do the original add.. Gonna have to look into this more.
The Girl Scouts of Western Washington were offered $100,000 on the condition that the donation "will not be used to support transgender girls".
They sent the money back, held a fundraising campaign, and raised $300,000. #ForEVERYGirl

I think I may be lagging behind where I wanted to be in my degree and it doesn't feel great.

Well that tutorial w ent much better.

Yeah that's a good point. This was part of a larger discussion series that happens every week. The people who regularly go to the discussion are the ones who don't really need the tutorial but the ones who never seem to go were the same ones who needed to go.
I'm going to be slightly irritated if I keep getting emails about how to do X in git though.
Before doing anything intelligent with "AI", do the unintelligent version fast and at scale.
At worst you understand the limits of a simplistic approach and what complexities you need to handle.
At best you realize you don't need the overhead of intelligence.

Bummer. No one showed up for the git tutorial I was hosting with a colleague.
I am Simon Seamount. I earned a MS in Geographic Information Science. I work as a cartographer, and write epic poetry.
My pen name is Surazeus. I wrote an epic poem about philosophers called Hermead that presents the lives and ideas of 26 ancient philosophers in 126,680 lines of blank verse.

Went to an interesting talk today about multi-hop reasoning on knowledge graphs using surface language. (E.g. how do you reason using the language that is on the page or in the air when the reasoning involved requires multiple inferences). The gist was that it doesn't work well if the error rate of mapping onto the meanings is much above 0 (one tenth of one percent was too much error for three hops). Pretty cool stuff to think about for creating implicature mining systems.

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
