Bought 3 TVs yesterday! A 43in for kids room, a 65in for old manís living room and a 75in for my den.

Fucking Hell yah! That 2.1 is rad.

Ukraine wins a Euros game for the first time since 2012.

We're not even close to being through yet, but as someone who watched all 3 2:0 losses live in 2016.... I'm very pleased with the progress the team made. Even if we did drop points folishly in the Netherlands game.

Lumber prices have 'plummeted'... and mortgage (interest) rates continue going down.

Internet based on quantum entanglement beckons. More generally looks like I may not have jumped the gun by too far by investing in quantum computing---at least relative to the amounts that others, including governments, are now investing (quantum computing arms race between US and China, with Germany trying to catch up by way of IBM? wonderful, and they're not even developing weapons of mass destruction (or at least of mass murder... so far... IDK that quantum machine learning would help all that much with killer AI, though it might excel at designing new pathogens, etc.)).

Meanwhile, I've been spared from potentially spending hours scouring my apartment for the new SIM card I was going to use... after realizing smartphone hardware has progressed to the point where a virtual 'eSIM card' can be used with my smartphone instead.

Little break in the oppressive heat today. Was glad for it because I wasn't looking forward to mowing the lawn and doing yard work in that.

Got my new NEW tv delivered today. Now I got to lug the other beast back to Best Buy for refund. Iím watching some of these 8K videos on YouTube now and holyshitballs itís crazy looking!

Old manís furniture is being delivered this Friday and once that happens I will permanently place my ass/PS5/Xbone back in my den.

Finally! It has been a hell of a long 10 1/2 months.

Oh you must mean Chronurgy.

Chonurgy would be more Chaos + Con (= Drumpfjesus is Magich?...).

'Artificial intelligence speeds forecasts to control fusion experiments

[...] By optimizing the heating and shaping of the plasma scientists will be able to more effectively study key aspects of the development of burning plasmas—largely self-heating fusion reactions—that will be critical for [...] future fusion reactors.

[...]

"This is a step toward what we should do to optimize the actuators," [...]

[...] Reproducing fusion energy on Earth would create a virtually inexhaustible supply of safe and clean power to generate electricity.

"While physics-based models [...] exist," he said, "they are not appropriate for real-time decision making. They take way too long to calculate and are not as accurate as we need them to be."

[...]

The machine learning model addresses both issues. "It has learned to make predictions from thousands of observed profiles in the PPPL tokamaks and has made associations between combinations of inputs and outputs of actual data," [...] Once trained, the model takes less than one thousandth of a second to evaluate. The speed of the resulting model could make it useful for many real-time applications'

https://phys.org/new...nce-fusion.html

'One key area of interest is how quantum computers might affect machine learning. We recently demonstrated experimentally that quantum computers are able to naturally solve certain problems with complex correlations between inputs that can be incredibly hard for traditional, or "classical", computers. This suggests that learning models made on quantum computers may be dramatically more powerful for select applications, potentially boasting faster computation, better generalization on less data, or both. Hence it is of great interest to understand in what situations such a "quantum advantage" might be achieved.

[...] There are a number of algorithms for which quantum computers are suspected to have overwhelming advantages, such as [...] the quantum simulation of quantum systems.

[...]
We show that learning algorithms equipped with data from a quantum process, such as a natural process like fusion or chemical reactions, form a new class of problems (which we call BPP/Samp) that can efficiently perform some tasks that traditional algorithms without data cannot'

Not that anyone noticed I was gone but I've logged back into the forum for the first time in a few weeks.

I hear the place had a meltdown in my absence. I'm not saying the two are linked, but...

Sorry mate, I assumed you were off doing Boris' work somewhere. You know, crushing freedoms, protecting the elites interests and all that. :D
