My 2¢ after playing with #Falkon for a little bit:
1. Falkon might be more resource-efficient on a Qt-based desktop than others -- or if you run a lot of Qt apps in general, particularly those that make use of #QtWebEngine.
2. Falkon's tracking protection is a bit limited, but at least it doesn't phone home out of the box -- which is a problem that both #Chrome and #Firefox have, though you can at least disable this in Firefox.
"Since version 3.0, QupZilla is no longer developed and new version are released with Falkon name as a KDE project."
I frankly think Attack on Titan will remain on top of the list 'til the end of the season...
Why Mathematicians Can’t Find the Hay in a Haystack
"It’s as if you were convinced the oceans were filled with water... but every time you took a sample, you came up with something else -- a shell, a rock, a plant. Yet to start to believe your hypothesis was correct, you’d hardly need to empty the sea."
Petrichor, that fresh aroma you can smell after the rain, is caused by a little molecule called geosmin. The name literally means "earth smell." It's produced by soil bacteria and gives an earthy flavour to beets.
Humans are extremely sensitive to this scent – much, much more sensitive than sharks are to blood. Some think we evolved that way to find fresh drinking water after droughts.
Thomas Edison was really freaking good at making money and keeping the IP for himself, so obviously he’s going to promulgate the view that it was a single genius, a loner working super hard in a room, who owns everything that came from it. Of course that’s going to be his mission. That's the #startup founder.
It’s incredible how even now you run a normal multi-layer neural network on a CPU machine and it’s quite slow. The GPU is a big advancement -- and the other thing is there have been some algorithmic advances on the vision side of deep learning. #AI
> Perceptrons, which I believe are the simplest neural networks, go back to the 1950s. What's changed is the hardware we can run them on has gotten so much faster and so much more efficient and so much more powerful, and the data sizes that we can work with have gotten so much bigger. So now we can solve these problems, and it's kind of awesome what we can do. #AI #machinelearning
