The Time Machine - H.G. Wells This is truly a classic! The description of the Morlocks and Eloi are a little sad considering they are the future of mankind. The ending left me wanting more.

In “Build Deeper - Deep Learning Beginner's Guide by Thimira Amaratunga

 

This book confirms other predictive system results that I have seen, where it has often been found that we human as a species who fancy ourselves as psychics or using other la-di-da methodologies can at best achieve around an 80% accuracy rate, even with good regular practice and tuning. The more accustomed you are toward reaching ever higher accuracy & precision percentile targets the more the distance to the next little increase in goal horizon. Still it does bring into question the abilities of Science and machine systems designing new machine systems, often through excluding what are regarded as unrepeatable subjective methods in favour of repeatable objectiveness. Outliers and other non-obvious patterns & so on are pushing back the boundaries at the edge of our cultural belief systems.

 

I don't think that any computer scientist would dispute the point that modern AI or machine learning is nowhere near the threshold of 'consciousness' or even 'general intelligence'. But it's not uncommon for words to have a different meaning within a technical field compared to how they are used in everyday communication. In regular English 'chaos' means unpredictable, whereas in mathematics it refers to the tendency of sensitive nonlinear systems to exhibit emergent attraction basins that can potentially be extremely predictable. Those are arguably even antonyms. Another example would be terms 'deterministic/nondeterministic' in Computer Science, which also differ strongly from their meanings in regular English. The point is that if you feel the need to grandstand on these trivialities, you clearly don't understand the fundamentals of the subject matter under discussion.

 

 

If you're into Computer Science and Machine Learning in particular, read on.

Reasons for choosing the Offset Printer for your printing business

In commercial printing offset printing is widely used because of the many extraordinary advantages that it offers. In fact, as per a recent survey it has been found that more than 40% print jobs are carried out using offset printing.

Mentioned below are some of the advantages that offset printing offers:

Even though this printing process necessitates a large investment in set up and equipment but once the infrastructure is ready, offset printing is comparatively reasonable. Moreover, when you print a large batch of products, the unit cost goes down drastically.

 

Offset printing provides high quality images and can work on a varied range of printing surfaces such as wood, paper, metal, cloth, leather, plastic and rough paper.

 

Offset printing is known to conquer each aspect starting from influencing teaching via the printing of periodicals, books and other study material to the packing industry by imaginative printing of packages for goods.

The contemporary offset printers now days use computer- to- plate methods in contrast to the traditional computer- to- film work flows which increases the print quality further.

Offset printing does not transfer the ink directly from any material on the paper. Because the ink does not have to move, offset printing becomes extremely precise and detail oriented, especially when it comes to color printing.

In case you are still not sure as to which one to choose: offset printing machines or digital ones, go through the following points:

In case you want to get large quantities of prints; then you must select the offset printing. This is because the unit cost will go down as the quantities increase.

In case you are looking for more flexibility in printing like you want printing on an unusual surface; then you should opt for offset printing. This method of printing facilitates printing on varied surfaces such as linen, wood etc.

Do you need black ink or one or two ink colors? Then choose offset printing as it offers a more economical solution. On the other hand, if you need four- color printing then choose digital presses.

If you need a long print run of an item with no adaptable information, then offset printing is the best option available as this can get the prints done fast when the press is all set because offset presses usually run faster.

Digital printing can be the perfect solution for some people, but for most, computer- to- plate offset printing always yields the superior result in print quality.

  • So, if you would like to save money, then printing in two colors is an economical way of reducing costs while keeping the quality intact by using the offset printer. In fact the experts say that even though digital print quality has improved, it still cannot match the quality of offset. Now, if you need to print your materials on demand and the content is flexible, offset is the best and most economical method for your job.

    Among the popular offset machines, Polly 745 is mostly preferred by customers for its ease of operation and excellent print quality.
