  1. it’s such a common relation I’m surprised you’ve never heard of it. http://feature.politicalresearch.org/whats-the-matter-with-secularism https://www.vice.com/en/article/3k7jx8/too-many-atheists-are-veering-dangerously-toward-the-alt-right https://www.rysec.org/event/atheism-and-the-alt-right/ Namely it’s a pretty straight forward path from the New Athiest Movement of the 2000s -> “Intellectual Athiesm” like Sam Harris -> Alt Right Id argue that is just American Conservatives (the line is frankly blurry regardless,) while Alt-Right tends to reject the reli
  2. Not sure this is true anymore as the new atheist movement is considered a predecessor to the alt-right. I don’t think religion is a good indicator of political leanings in the present day and only ever was because the USSR was officially an atheist state.
  3. Yes sorry if I wasn’t clear initially. You asked for guidance on building this LSTM but that’s a big ask and I was advising you to implement smaller networks on your own to build the knowledge and intuition required to implement this paper. An LSTM is four networks so building CNN is definitely a first step regardless. In the process you may find a simpler network (or combination of) will suffice for the problem you are trying to solve. In general if you are wanting help implementing something it needs to be smaller than a research paper. At least take a first pass at it and come back
  4. I’d say there is or should be a distinction between sacrificial suicide and not. If you are killing yourself to prevent information getting out, or even to prevent a gruesome torture where you’d likely die anyway, then that may be morally correct. If you are down on your luck and take your own life it’s definitely less so and we should actively prevent this when possible. Of course you could make the argument some people’s lives are gruesome just due to being alive, such as people dealing with great amounts of pain or just getting a bum wrap all around since birth, and this is the reaso
  5. LSTMs are a couple years away from cutting edge. This is a big ask but let me ask have you implemented a convoluted neural network before? An LSTM is basically a recurrent net built with four CNNs (that’s a simplification please don’t take that too literally) one for input, one each for short and long term memory and then finally an output network. As I said this is a complex network so if you haven’t built a CNN you need to learn how to do that before scaling up. Also what is this for? LSTMs tend to be best for time series analysis (stock prices, sales data, etc) so there may be a s
  6. Iirc (this may not be true but it is for most dynamic console commands) top uses ncurses which is a TUI library. It’s fairly easy to do this ncurses though my only experience with it is in C not Java, you may want to see if there are binding for that. The old school way is to simply redraw the entire console with only the characters you want changed changed. Normally you’d check how tall the current console is and ‘\n’ your way to a clear screen before redrawing, but you can use the clear command if you want (most languages have a system library that lets you call commands programmatically.
  7. I’m not a physicist but a simple google search claims that antimatter is believed (but not yet proven) to interact the same as normal matter gravitationally. Normally when a theory likes this pops up my first thought is, “surely someone with more expertise has thought this and there’s a good reason the theory isn’t widespread.” That isn’t always the case and people thinking like you are the reason sometimes new theories do come out of left field, but it’s worth trying to disprove yourself first anyways. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_interaction_of_antimatter
  8. I would say that, if your goal is domain specific as in the example of sales that we’re rolling with, you would need some hard coded primitives/nouns that you can push to a “topic stack,” by which I mean that chains are fine for just handling responses but you will have some logic that isn’t a machine learning. Mainly though my point is that moving from discussing the items to checkout doesn’t actually change the topic but it adds a new, derived, topic unto the “stack” which in reality would be a higher level chain than the markov chain. So perhaps you have a high level chain that lear
  9. On its own probably not. You could for sure use a markov chain to get “price n apples” from the phrase price of 5 apples, and it’d be trivial to allow the same or a related chain to keep track of a state (so as to disregard bananas) but you would then need to delegate the looking up of some price from an inventory system, etc. A chain is just that a chain of words and it learns to hop to the most likely word based off the previous N words. By the time you implemented a chain to extract that kind of data it wouldn’t be a markov chain. you could use a chain like that to process words and
  10. I haven’t used a markov chain in years so I don’t know a good tutorial but the first google result was a python library https://github.com/jsvine/markovify May I ask what did you try in regards to neural networks? There are lots of architectures of ANNs and things like a simple CNN will probably get you nowhere fast but RNNs will far exceed the capabilities of a markov chain.
  11. It seems my response in your other chatbot thread (intents classification) led you to only half the correct solution. In the other thread you had a link to a data set which provided you with both input parameters and a series of responses that fit them. I suggested a markov chain as a much simpler way to map those input phrases to output phrases than an ANN but you will still have to train it on that dataset (and likely format said data in a way the chain can learn to hop from the correct state to the next.) EDIT If you’re actually looking to properly model intent (I assumed you we
  12. The simple answer is making near identical copies of itself, tho simple proteins aren’t life, so what life is would be a group of proteins working in junction able to generate near exact copies of the entire protein chain. The atomic structure of that is likely near infinite in terms of how to it’s made up (although probably small in terms of how such things can arbitrarily form in our universe without some intelligent designer I.e. humans making proteins in a lab.)
  13. I’d think it depends on the species, however, Wikipedia says this in general: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millipede#Reproduction_and_growth
  14. If it’s homework or something that absolutely required a stat model I would recommend a markov chain. It’s about the simplest one that’ll work for you as you just train it to jump from one state or another (autocorrect used to be a markov chain until a few years ago) and can be implemented in a few dozen lines of code. Neural nets are sexier but very difficult to get right with language unless you have a lot of time (the complexity compounds quickly.)
  15. Of course the earth is the center of the known universe as that’s where we are looking out from. This is also a 7 year old discovery. It would be weirder if we somehow weren’t.
