I'm like a vampire, except I'm not crossing that threshold even if you invite me.

Home Made Robots / Using a Standard Skeleton
« Last post by frankinstien on August 14, 2020, 09:18:52 PM »
It's in!  :D I managed to get a skeleton from a doll company dirt cheap! The only problem, however, is the joints have the bolts welded which means I'm going to have to use a welding torch to remove the solder on the bolts.  :( But at least it's a starting point...Hopefully.  O0



This post refers to this previous post.

If this works out I will travel to China to have her poured!  :D

Thanks for your suggestion, so I've coded and modified the interface so that context information is given in the comic style.
Furthermore, the background AI system is now able to always answer questions, even if perhaps creatively.
Can you find me the biggest errors in the system or give me what other particular suggestion?

AI News / Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformer
« Last post by frankinstien on August 13, 2020, 07:42:16 PM »
 Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformer (BERT) has become a standard building block for training task-specific NLP
models.  I have never heard of it but it is a Google creation that was published in 2018. Microsoft has developed a Biomedical NLP solution and has published a white paper about it.

Reading the paper I was just wondering how GPT-3 and 4 would do if applied to the same task?

The problem with VR currently is it's still using the very compromised visual scope of 2D. Where film or I should say Hollywood moved to 70mm to get more panoramic experiences, then moved to even bigger formats of IMAX, that perspective is still not in VR. For example; the image below is but a fragment of what I was able to experience. The image is of the mountains of Mammoth California. I drove their last weekend with my dogs. The spot is off the map, you can't get there with a car and it's even off the trails, where to get to the off-trail spot you have to take the path that says it's dead-end, which it's not!  You then have to drive your 4 wheel drive (mine is a Hummer H2 with 36" tires) up a 45 degree sand bank to then drive into the forest where you bob and weave through trees, there are no trials. But the view was worth it.  So how we see is a very immersive type of experience where the peripheral vision is hard to duplicate with VR.
