How HBO’s Silicon Valley built “Not Hotdog” with mobile TensorFlow, Keras & React Native
How HBO’s Silicon Valley built “Not Hotdog” with mobile TensorFlow, Keras & React Native
Start Highlighting

The HBO show Silicon Valley released a real AI app that identifies hotdogs — and not hotdogs — like the one shown on season 4’s 4th episode (the app is now available on Android as well as iOS!)

To achieve this, we designed a bespoke neural architecture that runs directly on your phone, and trained it with Tensorflow, Keras & Nvidia GPUs.
While the use-case is farcical, the app is an approachable example of both deep learning, and edge computing. All AI work is powered 100% by the user’s device, and images are processed without ever leaving their phone. This provides users with a snappier experience (no round trip to the cloud), offline availability, and better privacy. This also allows us to run the app at a cost of $0, even under the load of a million users, providing significant savings compared to traditional cloud-based AI approaches.

Earlier in this season of HBO’s Silicon Valley, Erlich and Jian-Yang of the fictional SeeFood startup launched an app that could identify hot dogs. Put a hot dog in front of it, and it’ll say “hotdog!” Put something else, like a shoe instead, and it’ll say “not hotdog!” It’s simple. A real version of the app showed up in the App Store after the episode aired. Today, it’s available on Android through the Play Store. A bunch of knockoff apps are also listed, so make sure you’re downloading the official version.

Pro tip: the app is good at identifying hot dog-themed items, too, like phone cases.

Bonus: it even works with the Not Hotdog app pic.twitter.com/6n3ox9LjMh

Go ahead and get out there, y’all. A world of hot dogs awaits as we approach the Fourth of July.

Lynda Barry: The 20 stages of reading
If there are stages of grief and steps to recovery, isn’t the act of reading a complicated, evolving thing over time? Cartoonist Lynda Barry, one of scores of writers at the National Book Festival on Sept. 21-22, certainly thinks so. (Related: 12 authors, 12 reasons why they write)

Los Angeles Review of Books - Louis C.K. And The Rise Of The 'Laptop Loners'
“You’re a great guy,” she says. “But my chemistry is telling me that you’re a loser.” Is this funny or just depressing?

One can imagine how this scene would play out on Curb. Larry, dismayed, would hold his date in his trademark, squint-eyed stare. He would be indignant to be so unfairly judged. In Curb, what often allows the audience to laugh is the reassuring knowledge that, despite Larry’s humiliations, he’s still Larry David: superior, smug, self-satisfied. Larry doesn’t feel shame, only annoyance and self-righteousness. He’ll laugh last while drinking champagne in his mansion.

Louie gives no such reassurance. One gets the sense that humiliations stay with him, that he carries them like blooming tumors in the pockets of his swollen belly. Both Louie and Larry are bourgeois white American men, but only Larry’s feel like first world problems. In part, this is because bodily despair transcends race and class. Louie’s misery seems inevitable, irreparable, real in the sense that it extends beyond the boundaries of the show’s fictional sphere and into C.K’s actual life. We surmise that it’s not just the character that’s overweight and out of breath, but also the actor who plays him.

The waning state of C.K.’s fleshly self is a major source for Louie’s particular amalgamation of humor and woe. Louie’s doctor tells him he has “the worst penis I’ve ever seen.” A young woman wants him to describe — mid-coitus — his body’s degeneration. Again, we’re privy to C.K.’s subjective reality, his glass half empty interpretations. It’s the nightmarish solipsism of he who thinks the world was built to hurt him, the literalization of a misanthrope’s imagination.

Excellent meta on Louis.

By the fourth time Crosby has hung up on him, Alex has to admit that this has gone from funny to, frankly, a little hurtful.
