Time for AI to conquer Fidget Spinner Simulator and other appalling asset flips!
(I admit I assumed FSS is a Unity game because it's an asset flip, but I'm not 100% sure about that.)

Who is in any doubt as to whether the authorities already have logs of internet traffic, especially HTTP(S) IPs/domains visited?
Of all the things we know the NSA is capable of, this sounds rather primitive. I'm certain I've read that this level of information has been required to be collected by ISPs in the UK for many years.
I think they're referring to the killswitch domain that Marcus himself bought to stop the vulnerable variants of WannaCrypt from propagating.
Yes, it's that f**king stupid. It's like adding insult to injury if it actually does mean this. Welcome one and all, except those who help others; f**k them, we'll treat them like terrorists and degrade them, stopping short of actually physically torturing them.
AI in continuous games isn't particularly impressive as it comes down to reaction times, and in that respect AI will always have the upper hand. It's a completely different type of game compared to Go, a turn-based game, where latency isn't crucial.
This proof-of-concept match has very stringent rules, such as both human and AI being able to play only one hero, and other environmental boosters ("runes") not being permitted. It's a million miles from the actual game of Dota 2, which is a 5 vs 5 astronomically more complex game.
There are very few details on how this bot works. We don't know if the AI is receiving the screen data as input, or if it's getting easily-parseable representations of the world. These are two massively different things for several reasons; a big one, IMO, is recognising animations. Vengeful Spirit (not the hero the AI is using in this case) is the most extreme example I can think of as all of her animations look *very* similar; one of which is a very powerful, fast-moving stun. If it's her stun, you have very little time to recognise it, both from sight and sound cues.
If the AI is "seeing" these animations as events in an easy-to-parse world representation, then the bot can surely instantly recognise that it is about to be stunned and take action much quicker than a human ever could. That being said, all ability casts can be cancelled a certain way through, so the bot could potentially be duped into a loop of thinking it's going to be stunned and then not. This adds some more interesting potential for the bot to recognise whether it's beneficial for the enemy to stun the bot, so it knows whether to actually bother reacting. But Dota 2 is an imperfect information game, so it sounds complex.
Anyway, I felt I had to rant about this. It's interesting, yes, but I don't think it makes any difference to everyday Dota 2. If you want to make a strong bot that has the same level of skill as a human then clearly it will need delays adding to its decisions, or perhaps it would have to make occasional deliberate mistakes. But otherwise, it's just Elon Musk's company waving their "deep learning" dongs around, showing that they've done it first.
Bugs me that the UN is completely useless in situations like this. The only words to come out of Ban's mouth are something to the effect of "I urge all sides not to do anything that would cause instability [on the Korean peninsula]."
NK has barely any food, surely if they don't grow up and prove themselves worthy of food aid, they'll just die and collapse? Food aid from the US was revoked as a result of the first test earlier this year.
Hang on, surely mouse and keyboard use are among the most predictable entropy sources possible?
Consider for a moment the likelihood that someone has moved their hands to the left or right, rather than up or down, given our wrist and the movement it makes the easiest.
And for the keyboard, if you're sourcing what people type and they're not aware of the fact that they are participating in entropy "gathering", what's the likelihood they've been using the most common characters the most?
Maybe I'm misunderstanding the concept, but I can't think of a worse choice for getting entropy.
I don't know that much about the maths of this, but I thought you were supposed to "get" entropy from an unpredictable source, such as radioactive decay, rather than something VERY predictable, like ones mouse and keyboard use?
I believe that /dev/random gets noise from attached hardware devices in order to fill an entropy "pool", I believe the term is.
OK, exam over, feedback please!
I've got a theory that the dance is actually a mind control ritual. Recently, Psy's been teaching it to the world's public populations, but more scarily, politicians who should have nothing to do with 'music' (like Ban Ki-moon! WTF is going on there...) and so he has more and more of a grip on the world, and will eventually invoke the apocalypse. I think you know what day it will be...
Story time over.
