Wikipedia - Before Present
"Before Present (BP) years is a time scale used mainly in geology and other scientific disciplines to specify when events occurred in the past. Because the "present" time changes, standard practice is to use 1 January 1950 as commencement date of the age scale, reflecting the fact that radiocarbon dating became practical in the 1950s. The abbreviation "BP", with the same meaning, has also been interpreted as "Before Physics"; that is, before nuclear weapons testing artificially altered the proportion of the carbon isotopes in the atmosphere, making dating after that time likely to be unreliable."

Wikipedia - Continuous stationery
"Continuous stationery (UK) or continuous form paper (USA) is paper which is designed for use with dot-matrix and line printers with appropriate paper-feed mechanisms. Other names for continuous stationery include fan-fold paper, sprocket feed paper, burst paper, tractor-feed paper, and pin feed paper. It can be single-ply (usually woodfree uncoated paper) or multi-ply (either with carbon paper between the paper layers, or multiple layers of carbonless copy paper), often described as multipart stationery or forms."

createwith.ai 人工知能と表現の今
"本サイトは、AI (人工知能)と「表現」、人間の「創造性」の未来を考える上で興味深い「論文」「デモ」「作品」「記事」などを紹介するサイトです. AIによる表現に興味のあるクリエイター、アーティスト、あるいはAI研究者を主な対象とし、今、何が起きているかを毎日少しずつ伝えるリンク集を目指しています.


もちろんそれはAIによってアーティストの仕事を置き換えようとか、作品を自動生成しようということではありません. AIが人とは違う知能として存在することで、今まで人が考えもつかなかったような気づきを得たり、気づいていても労力と時間の制限からとても試しきれなかったようなアイデアを、AIによって実行に移せるのではないかという大きな期待からです.

クリエイティビティの源泉が、既存のアイデアの新しい組み合わせにあるならば、その結果を自動的に評価できるAIの存在は人間にとって間違いなく福音です. 新しい組み合わせを作り、試し、評価・取捨選択するというサイクルをいままでにないスピードで回せるのですから.

新しい技術とそれがもたらす社会の変化を批評的な目でとらえることは、アート(特にメディアアート)のひとつの役割のはずです. しかしことAIに関して言うと、難解なイメージだけが先行して、実態がつかめないと感じるアーティスト、クリエイターが多いのも事実です. このサイトがすこしでもその心理的な障壁を下げる役割を担えれば幸いです. サイトに上がってくるリンクをなんとなく眺めながら、Deep Learningでこんなことができるんだ (あるいはこんなことしかまだできないんだ)、この辺が研究トピックとして熱いんだなと想像をかきたてるようなサイトになればと思ってます (荒削りな研究論文がもたらす示唆のほうが作品よりもよっぽど刺激的だったりします). こういった情報に触発されて生まれた作品がAIと人間の関係に新しい視野をもたらし、AI技術の研究開発そのものにもよい影響を与えるのでは… そんなことを願っています.

本サイトは即時性とカバーするトピックの広さを重視し、個々の論文や研究について、深く掘り下げて伝えることは目指していません。あくまで入口を提供する場であり、詳細は論文を読んでくださいというスタンスです。AIの研究分野ににうとい方でも内容をなんとなく想像できるように、なるべく平易な日本語で書くことを心がけようと思います。また、AIとは何かという議論にもここでは踏み込まないでおきます. ここでは進化の結果生まれた自然の知能を、人工的に実現する仕組みとしておきましょう. Deep Learningを中心に、この定義に当てはまる幅広い技術トピックを取り上げる予定です.

「AIと表現」というとなにか特殊な狭い領域のように思うかもしれません.それは、1995年頃にインターネット上のあるいはインターネットが可能にする新しい表現について考えましょうと言っているのと同じなのではないかと思います. そういえばあの頃そんなサイトがあったな、とあとで振り返って笑えたら幸せです.

Story Corps. - Edwin Lanier, Jr. and David Wright
from his obituary: "Edwin “Eddie” S. Lanier, Jr. 68, passed away peacefully in to the Kingdom of Heaven on Tuesday October 14, 2014. He was born in Durham NC, March 5, 1946, the son of the late Edwin S. Lanier Sr. and Nancy Herndon Lanier. He is survived by his sister Nancy Lanier Griffin, nephew Richard Griffin and grandnephew Michael Griffin. He will be missed by the many lives he has touched by his wisdom and recordings.

His early years were in Chapel Hill as the son of the UNC-CH financial aid director and town Mayor. His High School years were in Raleigh graduating in 1964. He then attended Holden Technical Institute (Wake Technical Institute) and then worked for Troxler Electronic Laboratories. He later took a position with the NC Department of Labor.

Some of the events in Eddie’s life are documented in the StoryCorps recordings archived in the Library of Congress and broadcast on NPR first in 2006 and published in the first StoryCorps book “Listening Is an Act of Love” 2007. Links to these stories are at www.edwinslanier.com

He will be remembered as a friend, a man of wisdom and discipline who freely shared his life experiences with all who would listen."

"Intending the opposite, Greene has actually produced one of the best arguments since the New Testament for humility and obscurity."

"There has been no empirical research that any of the laws actually achieve positive social results, rather than being a behavioral guide for a typical sociopath."

How much money can you make collecting cans and bottles? We tried it to find out
"Shawn, for the record, neither of the writers of this story commented on Gothamist. We don’t know who did. We also gave over $8 worth of bottles and cans we collected to a man who was waiting at one of the machines. We did an experiment, posted our results, and left it at that. Please don’t make snap judgments."

"Will say the best message of this is simple: Separate redeemables from non-redeemables to make the lives of collectors better."

"hiroo maruyama 6.3.13 at 5:52 pm
Afer y parents are deceased,I plan to collect soda cans and bottles from garbage.Beacuse my parents wrote a will that in scarsdale ny My sister and ….. get the houses and the money.I will not be welcome in a group home so I have no choice."
