>>7676682 No idea. I'm a pure mathfag and I would recommend none of the stuff I've done from the math side of things (stochastic processes). It's all incredibly boring compared to the AI stuff, in my opinion.
The brain is complicated and the emotional building blocks that make up depression all have evolutionary benefits until they go out of control.
Or if you're one of those horrible evolutionary psychology type people that can't stand complexity and so have to invent simplistic narratives for themselves, how about I just say that a biological gambit where 90% of the time you improve your life and 10% you make it much much much much much worse is a net evolutionary benefit.
>>7676430 Assuming depression is indeed inherited, it likely survived the same way many genetic disorders do, it is either carried as a recessive allele (so will only show if two people with this allele mate) or it is carried as a sex linked disorder on the x chromosome. If I were to guess I would say it is the latter as men seem to suffer from depression more than women.
Probably. I'm hopeful that we'll find a solution before significant damage is done. It's not even that tough to do. Albedo modification isn't that expensive, and although may have side effects, is better than nothing. If not albedo modification, we could use sulfate aerosols. We have many ways we can "buy time" to wean ourselves off of fossil fuels, which will naturally occur as prices rise.
Hello /sci/ I'm a Senior in High School and I am taking the ACT in december. This will be the first time I have taken this exam and it is of utmost importance that I score a 33, while not hard I would want to know what tips you have before taking the ACT? Also, what did you score on the exam?
How do we read all of those textbook PDFs that we all pirate? Do you use a monitor pivoted vertically? Do you import it to an e-reader/tablet? I'm curious to what everyone uses since we seem to link PDF files and recommend all of these textbooks on a daily basis.
I've read a lot about DNA specific bioweapons over the years. I have no doubt that they are in theory possible, and that people are taking precautions against it. I can find lots of blogs/articles online discussing it in pretty good detail, but when I try and find actual sources on the matter I've sort of hit a brick wall.
Maybe I'm just not hitting that sweet search-term spot, but I can't find anything published that discusses these designer weapons specifically. Any help?
While it is certainly possible, the amount of time, resources, and money involved would be impractical at best.
It would have to target and entire subset of genetic traits as the trigger. It's not feasible to target a specific genotype and with the spread and interbreeding between peoples of all regions it cannot be safely assumed that a trigger sequence wouldn't kill a large percentage of the population. Especially if the disease that has been modified is particularly deadly or virulent.
>>7674993 No, you need to take the hyperbolic inverse Mellin transform, of the intersection, superimposing a supergeometric Riemann sum in dual (complete) Hilbert space, and then take the double reverse Fourier transform of the residue, and finally just dagger the result.
>>7674952 It's almost entirely science fiction at this point, but who knows about down the road.
An individual's neuronal network must first be mapped, and then some rigid way of detecting neuron firing must be accomplished. Once this happens, neuron activity can be represented in binary (fired vs. unfired) or more plausibly but more difficultly, hexadecimal, where several states of the neuron are mapped at once (chemical transmittance, electrical transmittance, etc). Then of course, there'd be the issue... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The ability to map is irrelevant. You need to understand the functionality of the system as a whole, down to intracellular mechanics, and be able to simulate physics with reasonable accuracy. It's not feasible.
It'll also be a clone, or an identical child. Not you.
