Woody Allen Jazz Band

December 29, 2007

This is really something worth mentioning: walking on Christmas day in Chatelet, Paris I stumbled upon this show:

Allen

I got in and actually bought a ticket to see Mr. Allen. The show was funny, original and kind of ´home made´. The band was awsome and Woody spoke very few and only in French. It is such a feeling to see LIVE a guy that you´ve been admiring for almost 20 years. Way to go Woody, I am dying to see your next movie AND your next show. :o)

Singularity is near

December 9, 2007

Singularity, the moment where artificial intelligence will start to design itself, is sending signs. Economist reports:

“Perhaps the most cunning use of an evolutionary algorithm, though, is by Dr Koza himself. His team at Stanford developed a Wi-Fi antenna for a client who did not want to pay a patent-licence fee to Cisco Systems. The team fed the algorithm as much data as they could from the Cisco patent and told the software to design around it. It succeeded in doing so. The result is a design that does not infringe Cisco’s patent—and is more efficient to boot. A century and a half after Darwin suggested natural selection as the mechanism of evolution, engineers have proved him right once again.”

Oh boy…
