back to article Our vulture survived Computex – now he just needs to tell us the highs and lows

    Oh, please, videos don't sync to my work pattern. Please, please provide an old-fashioned transcript!

      On a desktop, if you click through to YouTube and expand the description then there's an option to see the transcript but with four people talking it's not ideal as the name isn't shown.

Inquiring minds also probably want to know what that blue-ball-handbag contraption was in Tobias' background, and what sort of red-fluorescent-protein cocktail it was that gave Chris his sudden penchant for crocodiles (something isolated from jellyfish, like GFP? Or maybe one of Simon's street-walking whole alien-flattened face-hugger deep-fried squids? Prawns -- pronounced prôn?)! Inquiring minds ...

    Computex more AI tedium

    You can “read all about it” here.

    YAWNERS! “In the aftermath of Computex 2023 in Taipei, Taiwan, we described what felt like an inescapable “AI wave.” Following our time on the ground at this year’s event, that wave has grown into a rip current…”
