A Typical Elon Musk Day...but it could take place at another tech company. Mr Musk 21/05/22(Sat)08:10 No. 17563 ID: eed8a3 [Reply]

A Typical Elon Musk Day...but it could take place at another tech company.

Telsa Software Developer: Good morning team, Elon did not like that it took his model S 17 minutes to get to the car factory from his house last month. So I built him a rocket ship. It takes 10 minutes off his commute and only burns $100,000 of fuel each way. Operations, we need a voice activated rocket landing pad on the factory's roof quickly as this is an expensive project.

Telsa Operations Manager: Hello sir, this is the first I heard of this, I just spoke to my engineers, and if you land that massive rocket on the roof, they are 100% certain the entire building will collapse, killing us all. Have a great day.

Telsa Architecture Manager: Team, we architected that elevated personal super highway for Elon last month it cost 90 billion, but I will see what else we can do. We do need a few months to think about rocket landing pads before designing the most elegant thing possible otherwise it will be too easy to implement, and we can't have that.

Telsa DevOps: We have an AI electric helicopter for Elon, it will take 5 minutes off his commute and does not use any fuel as it runs on solar power. We told quality control to look at the windshield, and it is bug-free literally. Give us 2 years and we can take another minute off of his commute by tweaking the helicopter pipeline.

Telsa UX: Sorry, DevOps, behavioral science tells us Elon likes rockets because of the little red on one on his childhood lunch box.

Data Science/AI Manager: Team, our predictive models show, If the rocket lands on the roof, it will take ~5 seconds, not 6 seconds, for the building to collapse and burst into a giant ball of fire. We are 99.3347534% sure of that, accounting for wind speed and 10,000 other variables. My PHD's do worry about sample size in our AI algorithms (Ivy league Doctorates worry about everything) ... so they are asking a few rich princes they met on the dark web to donate their spare space rockets for experiments. All we have to do is send each prince $100 dollars for rocket shipping and we can improve our machine learning by a factor of 6.43.

Supposing a given artificial sweetener -- say, saccharine or aspartame -- was a carcinogen, what kind of cancer would it produce and by what mechanism?
If this question is too hypothetical to answer, by what mechanism would ingesting a non-toxic chemical cause cancer?

No, it's more akin to saying wounds are caused by being clubbed.

> Cancer isn't just caused by mutagens for fucks sake, if that was the cause we would have cured cancer long ago.

Interesting conclusion, I was unaware we found a way to eliminate any possibility of mutations occurring.

Anonymous 22/02/03(Thu)03:16 No. 18094 ID: a5935d

Being caused by a virus isn't the same thing as being a virus.

The virus introduced mutations in the cells which - later - caused the cancer.

By inoculating against the virus you can prevent the mutations and therefore the cancer.

I don't know if it's a virus, but some people's stupidity is definitely a disease, and we need some sterilization.

Wait, isn't simulation theory viable? Because in our own universe we could easily create a simulation by simulating natural brain inputs using wires and electronics... Fed directly into the brain...

Do you know how many theories are viable? The question is if there is a reason to assume they are true. There is no reason to assume we live in a simulation.

Hey, /sci/. I'm running a simulation of solar panel efficiency and I need some way to calculate energy production from the sun's position in the sky. For example, assuming a panel that is always pointer at the sun, when the sun is closer to the horizon the panel will generate less energy than when it's high in the sky.

I'm looking for something like f(x radians) = y W/m^2.

Sorry to hear that. Try moving to a less shitty latitude?

SecondHand 22/03/02(Wed)15:22 No. 18174 ID: 765a67

You could try to find a climatic compromise, for example. Suppose you get solar panels power supply in summer and traditional electricity in winter. How about that? As for house darkness you can get to newmarket window replacement https://thwindowsdoors.com/newmarket-window-replacement/ and change your small old windows to multiple new ones. This will attract some extra light, I assume.

>Can you please tell your story, anon?
There's not really much to tell. I worked with a design team on latches, catches and cases (aftermarket automotive). You know those fancy machines that cut out a part a thousand times a day, I was the one who took the schematics and wrote the program that told the machine to do its job.

The long and short of it is the industry has changed. Used to be we'd write the entire thing by hand, run it through a simulator and perform a dry-run before putting it to work. Now days you can auto-generate your code and it's normally fine, you still need people like us but not so many as you used to.

My job was pretty damn comfy, but ultimately it got boring and less challenging. You know that feeling when you go home and you feel like you haven't done a good days work, that was me almost every day. So I quit, got a temp-job in retail and worked my way up to management. The pays not as good (not that it's bad mind you) but the job satisfaction is there.

​​The Folk/Daniels research team has been working on a breakthrough discovery for multiple sclerosis. The Seattle based research group has found a link between the debilitating disease and unhealthy red blood cell production. They have discovered that iron deficiency and elevated oxygen saturation may be major contributing factors in the cause of the disease.

>Iron deficiency
COLOR ME SURPRISED modern medicine still doesn't want to regularly check for iron problems and instead call the patient a hypochondriac and lather one with anti-depressants.
>No mention of candida
Oh bother, another tisk tisk from me to modern medicine for not seeing the possible like there either.

Anonymous 19/06/12(Wed)15:44 No. 16784 ID: 133c48

is basically a function that gives you how much losses you got or to put it simply how wrong your model is given data to be trained with

Anonymous 19/06/13(Thu)04:55 No. 16785 ID: 517ef5

Its just a way of knowing how much your data is away from the actual value, or in other terms, how good your data is in terms of reputability

every living thing has an error inside of it that lets it function anywhere and become anything, it is the seed of the devil, and of god, that comes out over time to ensure the superiority of the species.
