Quote of the Day:

We certainly were [shocked]. We went very quickly from ‘Let’s see how well this works’ to ‘We seem to have a very strong player on our hands’ to ‘This player has become so strong that probably only a world champion can find its limits’.

DeepMind researcher George van den Driessche (on the 'learning' development of their game-playing A.I. bot, AlphaGo)

Monkey: That's cute.

Kon-Tiki: Just a heads up for those who read the comments first, this site tries to bounce you to a ad/virus site. So I left.

Neil: Oh Neil...you are learning what most kids are learning right now, that Twitter can ruin your life if you are not careful. And yes, sex can hurt...or is rape not a thing to him?

Face-swap: I'm not attracted to either of them normally, but now I find them slightly more attractive. WTF have you done to me internet?!

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

"The Life of Brian" as a reference?! Heh. Which explains why no one but the people behind the site itself take The Conversation.com as anything more than a place for grad students to slum during their coffee breaks.
