    [–] White House walks back Haley announcement on Russian sanctions for chemical attack l337Ninja 1 points ago in worldnews

    How can sex between a CEO and an intern be more muddled than sex between a President and an intern?

    You're shifting the goalposts there. That's not what his line was claiming, you're ignoring the rest of his paragraph completely...

    If it was just sex, like it was with Monica and Bill, then nah. It's the payoff that's the issue, but I think that's just a path to investigating the big money laundering.

    Whatever program it wants to pass the test, yes. Again, the video highlights this clearly. If you want to have a bot that can tell bees from threes, you can't tell the bot to look for that. No human programmer could. Instead, we give the bot 100,000 pictures of bees, and 100,000 pictures of threes, and the tester-bot teaches bots to do whatever it wants that happens to line up with this.

    The bot could wind up building a bot that looks for black and yellow instead of a bee, but scores 99.9% right as a result. What it produces is almost never actually what we tell it to make, just something that happens to do our particular test well.

    Someone would have to tell it what to make.

    Not neccesarily. We can tell it how to test, but most deep-learning algorithms are not designed by humans but rather by programs that find their own ways to "test" correctly. CGP Grey has a good episode on it here

    "We're used to the idea that the tools we use, even if we don't understand them, someone does, but with our machines that learn we are increasingly in a position where we use tools, or are used by tools, that no one, not even their creators, understand."

    The discussion on immigration there was... interesting to say the least. Definitely makes me more appreciative of this subreddit/the discord. Moved out of the Central Valley primarily to get away from that stuff.

    [–] Nvidia, stop being a DICK 2 l337Ninja 11 points ago in pcgaming

    Except the argument isn't about AMD's products, it's on NVIDIA's practices and their effect on the market as a whole (with AMD as an example). /u/Burnstryk spoke to AMD, which has nothing to with

    a monopoly is forming for nvidia. How is a monopoly good for the consumer? aka the original argument.

    [–] The literal translation of country names [4500x3172] l337Ninja 6 points ago in MapPorn

    Except غرب isn't used for sunset or setting, it's literally the word "west". So the م in there translates loosely as "The Westernmost Place" or "The Far West" as this map shows. (On that note, idk what they're using for Egypt since مصر just means "border"/"frontier").

    I mean, if you cover your eyes, I guess? Most people would call that a bit counter-intuitive though.

    ...but when the President does it, that means it is not illegal... Not the first time that card has been used. Was still determined to be obstruction of justice, too.

    [–] The Empire State Building as seen from New Jersey in 1941... photo by Andreas Feininger [530 × 780] l337Ninja 4 points ago in HistoryPorn

    I guess I just prefer that aesthetic.

    Oh yeah, I agree completely here, I just see too many people complaining about "modern architecture" and pointing to copy-paste office buildings. I personally am more of a fan of brutalist style architecture, but not many buildings are made in that style nowadays.

    [–] The Empire State Building as seen from New Jersey in 1941... photo by Andreas Feininger [530 × 780] l337Ninja 15 points ago in HistoryPorn

    Modern buildings are so sterile and plain.

    My counterpoints (and personal favorites):

    Taipei 101 - Completed in 2004

    Shanghai World Financial Center - Completed in 2007

    The Shard - Completed in 2013

    One World Trade Center - Completed in 2014

    Lotte World Tower - Completed in 2017

    Don't judge modern buildings by the cheap mass produced products. After all, we remember 70s cars off of Mustangs and Firebirds, not Ford Cortinas.

    They were testing delivering a payload accurately to a det orbit. A Tesla car allows them to have their payload plus get free publicity for the car for only $200,000 (or whatever it costs internally to make). Once it passes Mars orbit though, the odds of anything we launch ever hitting it are basically no chance unless we try.

    [–] Megathread: Trump Administration Declines to Enact New Russia Sanctions l337Ninja 2 points ago in politics

    As far as I understand reading the bill, it's more that much is left to the President's discretion (Phrases like "if the President determines"). The power to waive or cancel sanctions is explicitly listed as requiring Congressional approval.

    However, given that his own intelligence agencies have determined several people who fit the terms the bill covers, its essentially pleading ignorance of his own intelligence agencies to impose nothing without asking for Congressional approval.

    Possible violation of Article 2's Faithful Execution Clause ("he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed"). Past rulings on the clause include:

    The President may not prevent a member of the executive branch from performing a ministerial duty lawfully imposed upon him by Congress. (See Marbury v. Madison (1803); and Kendall v. United States ex rel. Stokes (1838)). Nor may the President take an action not authorized either by the Constitution or by a lawful statute. (See Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer (1952)). Finally, the President may not refuse to enforce a constitutional law, or "cancel" certain appropriations, for that would amount to an extra-constitutional veto or suspension power.
