Peanut allergy, what do – this research was recently updated as well

Wikipedia go – bored? try this

Conversation about the future – predicting the future is a burgeoning hobby, not necessarily for any accuracy, but for interesting perspectives

More future predicting –  currently the focus on computing, while very warranted, is flooding popular press due to alphago and other AI advancements. All exciting to witness but it takes a lot of work to dissociate the ideas and events from the rhetoric and opinions.

Developing utopia – good to broach this subject in a thoughtful manner because it has a high likelihood of becoming necessary, and is already happening

waifu2x can reduce noise in images and also upscale them. The algorithm it uses is intended for anime/cartoon styles, so that is what the end result will look a bit like, but it works quite well.


Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory

on June 17, 2015

The MMPI is “the original” and most authoritative personality test (being as it has been “studied” the most extensively (ie. the results correlated to random things); it is also quite extensive). Unlike other personality tests where all the possibilites are generally positive, this one does a good job of spitting out problematic traits. This happens to make this test actually useful.

It takes about an hour to complete the form and analyse the results. I’m sure you can pay to automate this, but as a demo it should summarise:

Normal: Yes / No / Mostly / Not so much

(pay for detailed report)

Of course most people would come out as Mostly.
