So why haven't we built one as close to working as we can get it with today's technology?
Assuming one wanted to become an indie game developer, what language would one need to become proficient in?
It depends entirely on what platform you want to develop for. If it's Reskinned Breakout Clone #675634886578 for the play store than learn Java and how to work with the ADK. If it's Walking Simulator: The Reckoning (now on Steam greenlight!!1!!!11!) then learn C++ and how to work with Unity.
It's funny how a $5 computer can beat the world champion in chess with 100% consistency and people still take it seriously.
That's why the Go scene has been growing, but a computer defeated a professional (2 Dan, I believe) player and also other Go AIs with perfect consistency, so yeah, board games are doomed in a way. When the game is created and nobody knows shit it's actually nice, but then it becomes over explored and all that is left is computing power and minimal lateral thinking to decide who is the better player.
>a $5 computer can beat the world champion
Yes, and a car is faster than Usain Bolt. Competitive chess isn't a scientific or academic exercise where you're publishing papers about game theory and perfect play. It's a sport played against other humans where things like preparation, endurance and the ability to pick the right moves under time pressure matter.
What is the densest non-toxic, easily accessible, inexpensive liquid available?
Any and all biological disciplines welcome. Share stories, facts, research or ask questions. I'm a microbiologist with a focus on immunology.
Here's a white blood cell (neutrophil) chasing and phagocytosing Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cell in your body and are typically the first responder against invading pathogens.
Here's ATP synthase, the enzyme that converts ADP to ATP.
How does that bacteria know he's about to be eaten? I really think the microscopic world is just fascinating, it's amazing to me how living things can be so complex and tiny all at the same time
This footage of amoeba eating a paramecium always freaked me out

So here I am memorizing fucking tables like an autist. How do chemfaggots justify this shitty class again?
You bloody autist! Don't memorize the tables, just memorize the patterns... Not the values, but the form of the lines.
Orgo is love, orgo is life
What patterns exactly?
I can see the simple shit like O-H, C-O, C-C bonds but those will only eliminate like one or two possibility.
He gives us 50 mins for an exam.
I had this faggot for orgo I and I learned the hard way that every fucking question and mechanism has to be muscle memory or else I'll run out of time.
Orgo is autism at the undergrad level and don't you try to justify this shit
Mathematics student here. How much effort do my math/sci/bros put into learning new mathematics.
I have come to believe that almost no one is born with the ability to use complex mathematical reasoning, and that anyone who wishes to be able to do so must supply the utmost effort.
I don't consider it "effort" to sit down with a Springer book and a cup of coffee and read about some Grothendiecks ideas for an hour a day. It's like watching a sitcom with one eye and eventually you understand the plot anyhow. Disclaimer: I don't do proofs for a living.
How do you define "complex mathematical reasoning"? I read in a MathOverflow answer by Tao that at one point he was rolling on the floor when thinking about about some wave PDE's and I think in pictures too.
Complex mathematical reasoning can have many definitions. We could base it on average understanding of math, which gives us some idea of simple mathematical reasoning.
However, this would mean anything above calculus (in developed countries, arithmetic in undeveloped) would be complex, which to anyone in STEM is complete hogwash. So lets say mathematics that requires vigor, such as: proofing mathematics, analysis. I'm talking about things that are more than plug and chug problem solving.
Something like this for me as well; it depends how you define effort.
I study math because I like math. In that sense there isn't really effort involved, any more than there's effort involved in sitting down and playing a video game.
But on the other hand, of course mathematics is difficult to understand. You have to really try to understand it, and even if you're very talented you get stuck a lot.
So there's effort there, but there's also that same kind of effort at getting...

Wanna do some engineering?
Could use some input. This is a headplate for a rotating piston compressor. The two small holes are where i plan on putting bearings and a lip seal. I will press them in, but i'd like to have a way of pulling them out again if i need to replace, but i'm afraid a traditional bearing puller would fuck up the soft aluminum of the headplate.
I was thinking of putting punch out holes in the bearing race, but that would compromise my seal.
>rotating piston compressor
A what now?
>i'm afraid a traditional bearing puller would fuck up the soft aluminum of the headplate.
I'm not even sure how you'd get a traditional bearing puller around those.
Gonna have to 'splain things a bit better before I can help you, OP.
>A what now?
a roots blower (kinda)
>I'm not even sure how you'd get a traditional bearing puller around those.
they have bearing pullers that grab from the ID of the bearing.
simple, press the bearings in, only sell the whole thing as an "assembly" and charge quintuple since youre the only fucker that makes it.
I believe in microevolution but macroevolution (ie a fish giving birth to a cow) is obviously false
