It may seem a but restarted, but give figuring out calculus a try. Not just understanding it, but start with a simple idea and work your way to developing some Math to describe it! I had a pretty fun time figuring my way around Rate Of Change in graphs several years ago and it helped me a lot once I got to calc.
Define math problems. Define fun. Trying to understand real analysis is a problem and its fun. On that matter, "real analysis" by rudin is my favourite. Dessert it with some Measure theory and you will understand probability on a whole different level
It seems that way anymore, with concepts like dark matter/dark energy and string theory.
They just seem like attempts at plugging holes in formulas because scientists don't have answers yet. So, they act like these theories are true, and books are written about these ideas as if they're facts and journals treat these ideas as if they're real.
I noticed this with the planet 9 hypothesis in the news. Everyone is acting like there is a ninth planet out there, but it just seems like they were too lazy to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You mean our computation power is not strong enough. The sheer complexity of "real life" models makes numerical computation ridiculously time consuming and difficult, so we HAVE to stick with simple models for the time being.
>>7801876 I think op is talking about models made from little /poor data.
No one says that the 9th planet (if thats what it is) is figured out . and any actual scientist will tell you that our current knowledge of anything past the moon that we havmt physically probed and studied is rough oversimplification s at best .
I mean we live on a planet that we know next to nothing (relatively) about.
Its not lazyness people just make hypotheses and try to explain shit .
>>7801829 it's a byproduct of intelligence and a complete different thing, those are not exclusive.
If you are creative, you are intelligent enough to see links where others can't really at first. But if you're only "textbook" intelligent (forgive me for this expression), maybe you are limited by what you learned by thinking it's the ultimate truth and limitation. You know, the "if it's not already been done then it's stupid" kind of mentality, or the inability to step... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So I was talking to a practicing medfag recently about her daily work and I came away with the conclusion that software could easily do most of their work. That does not mean they should be scared losing their work in the near future, because of strict regulations to tackle about responsibility and some people require human interaction, but I feel we are approaching peak MD fast.
It might be a bit counterintuitive, because doctors need lots of high level education and training, and they like to think it is a prestigious job, but her points were the following
1. People can identify common diseases and most can be treated with otc drugs 2. Where symptoms are ambiguous, you need to run some specific tests and evaluate their results 3.a you can either prescribe some drugs to the patient based on some preferences, like medical history etc 3.b send to a specialist for further
And these cover 90% of the use cases. It does not even need a complicated AI but a simple look up table.
>>7801824 >>7801824 absolutely. 200 years from now, if global caliphate or world war III won't happen, people will just step into a box. the box painlessly takes a drop of blood, runs a couple of medical imagining procedures and will suggest a diagnosis/treatment based upon checking thousands of biochemical parameters in a fraction of second. 500 years from now, if ayy lmaos won't wipe out our cosmic dumpster-planet in a preemptive strike, there won't be any illness anymore.
Shit, you don't need to do all that. As a medfag myself, if you can just make a program that does two things I'll buy it and install it in my office tomorrow.
> a machine that can diagnose patients with a viral chest infection and convince them that antibiotics won't make them better and them feeling better when they take them is just a coincidence
> a machine that convinces people that they don't need a test if the outcome of the test won't change the management or doing a test without a reasonable Bayesian pre-test probability produces uninterpretable results and useless false positives (e.g. people who get full body MRIs for no reason, screening with PSA, routine chest XR for no reason, etc)
Just doing that would revolutionize medicine and save the system tons of effort and money. Please, please, somebody work on this.
Is this the fate of humanity? With the spread of mosquitos due to climate change, will the human species be split between cold-dwelling antarctic species and a tiny-brained hairless ape living in the hotter climes?
>>7801821 >With the spread of mosquitos due to climate change Mosquitos keep spreading because you stupid hysterics leftists banned the use of DDTs. Your retarded environmental policies create a vicious cycle of confirmation bias.
1. I dunno, I think I had it from early childhood, you know being curious about shit around me 2. It pays off more than anything else, somehow 3. I'm pretty fucking old to start something else, but at this point I do sciencey schtuff almost intuitively, so I even have enough free time to get bored
I've been searching solar system planetary science in recent days, and this man is all over everything. Even keeps a great web page on solar system bodies with a daily date update tag, keeping him honest. Now I know that Orcus is, in multiple senses, the complementary body of Pluto!
Man, you are fucking stupid if you want Neural implants. What of someone hacks into them, or the government knows exactly what you are thinking at all times. Fucking scary man. And what if it short circuits or overheats and starts frying your brain (literally).
