This past weekend I was experimenting with a few of my bots using… “adversarial” training techniques and it didn’t go well.
Everything started out pretty much by the book… you take a few of your best candidate bots into a room and give them a little speech so everybody’s on the same page…
Actually, here’s a clip of a senior researcher working with some adversarial neural networks:
Generally speaking… training neural networks adversarially ends like the movie Highlander
So I broke a broomstick over my knee, I didn’t have a pool cue and that may have been where I went wrong… I’m still reviewing the data.
Anyway, confident in my ethical choices I locked the screen to the Virtual Machine and went outside to destroy the natural ecological state of my “overgrown” yard to avoid the ire of my nature hating neighbors!
It’s like… let nature take it’s course around a national monument and everybody’s like “Oh, it’s so majestic!” but let the weeds grow around your house… no, not those kind of weeds 😛 for a few wee… okay, months and suddenly everybody is like “Kill the majestic oxygen generating eukaryotes!”.
It’s a god damned double standard if you ask me!
None the less, after a couple hours I had driven back jungles and reclaimed this plot of land in the name of joyful civilization!
Thoroughly satisfied that I had met my societal obligations, I determined to press on and put the senselessness of it all behind me.
I went back inside and returned to my virtual machine to check on my bots.
I half expected to find my champion eagerly awaiting my return so it could show off it’s newly acquired skill set for me… but instead, as soon as I hit the ENTER key to unlock the screen I was immediately set upon by three broken broomstick wielding bots!
The verdure slaughter I had perpetrated against the poaceae earlier had left me weakened but I eventually managed to subdue the bots and return them to their enclosures.
My exhaustion left me ill prepared to try again over the weekend.
Instead I went over to PixBay (not a sponsor) and found an image to play with.
I found this image:
And decided to use it as the basis of a portrait of my S.A.M.
Please enjoy! 😉
