Why is there so much mystification around AI.
It's a method of statistical brute-force pattern recognition and generation.
Is it meant to dissuade people from seeing it as a tool they could learn to use?
Or was it just the hype intended to get investor money taking on a life of it's own.

That's saying something given their standards.


>I'm a hard materialist, so I think that the human brain is doing information processing, using electrical signals and neuro chemistry.

If anything this makes you a vulgar materialist. Define information for me.


>If anything this makes you a vulgar materialist
You are using this as a taunt in tribal discourse, that makes it meaningless as a theoretical criticism.

>Define information for me.

That's a huge subject that defies the requirements of brevity for posts such as this one, you have to read Claude E Shannon The Mathematical Theory of Communication. I tried to include the Book in the attachment but i can't upload files with a djvu file-extension, and after converting it to pdf the file size was too big. Sorry you have to get it from libgen or something in case you're interested

Was wondering how the fuck is Linux kernel GPL licensed and at the same time is used to make profit..

from the Linux kernel licensing rules
>Aside from that, individual files can be provided under a dual license, e.g. one of the compatible GPL variants and alternatively under a permissive license like BSD, MIT etc.
>The User-space API (UAPI) header files, which describe the interface of user-space programs to the kernel are a special case. According to the note in the kernel COPYING file, the syscall interface is a clear boundary, which does not extend the GPL requirements to any software which uses it to communicate with the kernel. Because the UAPI headers must be includable into any source files which create an executable running on the Linux kernel, the exception must be documented by a special license expression.

What's the point of using the GPL license then when you castrated it so, mr. Torvalds? Use the fucking BSD license then, what's the problem?

Also, I never understood how this dual license scheme is supposed to work from the point of the system of law. How is the same software can be under two contradictory licenses at the same time? the fuck?

What did Marx say about Mexicans, Slavs Jews, and Blacks, comrade? Let's not muddy waters by deviating from the great word of Marx?


Lenin clearly distinguishes between capital and commodities in his book "Imperialism the highest stage of capitalism"


>use le BSD

Yeah, it very much looks like that. Stuff like >>11934 uses terms in such a just plain wrong way that I have to wonder if it isn't just AI.
That they shouldn't be enslaved. Because that was a thing back then.
Sauce? You can do it. Lenin's little books are laid out like text books and are quotable unlike Capital. To read it from Marx, look at Chapter 4, pages 104-108.


>I have to wonder if it isn't just AI.

Hello, new to Linux and I would like to know if there is a PDF reader with the following characteristics:

1 - Has a "Fit content" option for zooming
2 - Remembers the last page I visited

Even if not the second option, the first is essential to me, my speed in reading PDFs has decreased a lot since I have to manually scroll down to read the content in each page instead of just using the keyboard arrows.

Pathfinder RAT is a web-based surveillance monitor and app binder malware program developed by Mnemonic Group. Pathfinder is one of the most effective and well engineered Remote Administration Tool (RAT) program. Well, I have this information since I opted for a similar program for my boy. Look, I have recently returned from vacation & I had him checked out already and i get it! He is a total package, the pandemic few years back helped me with closure in my affair, as we had to adopt new living methods…argh never mind, a mystery parcel I found on deep uni vi sion now down…I’d recommend with such awesome Hack Oracle Application Server, that can recover password to email accounts, Facebook Hack, Phone Hacks, want to monitor your partner.

Twitter is apparently pay-walling it's api in a few days

Does anybody know if this will affect front-end-sites like nitter.net ?

I found this discussion on gihub
<It's very unlikely Nitter will be affected since the APIs aren't used in the official way with developer credentials. I'm slowly moving stuff to use their newer GraphQL APIs anyway, so if it breaks it'll be fixed soon-ish.

So will nitter continue working ?

>Twitter is apparently pay-walling it's api in a few days
it was bound to happen sooner or later with custom front-ends for various social media platforms circumventing advertising popping up

don't care about twatter and other social media, but youtube closing its api would suck balls
they already tried to throttle youtube-dl downloads and hit github repos with dmca and booted newpipe from their store, seems like it's not enough


also to add, google is very dangerous with youtube in the social aspect because of all the shill """influencers""" ie propagandoids on its payroll who pretty much have a common interest and can be quickly mobilized to defend their income streams

In this sense it's even worse than traditional media, because of more personal connection between a propagandist and his platform, on the one hand, and a propagandist and his audience, on the other

no surprise there, capitalism always was good (relative to other modes of production) at incorporating various local elites into its framework
when it fails at this it gets Lenin, Stalin and other talented individuals as its enemies that can cause much damage


>it was bound to happen sooner or later with custom front-ends
Can't those evolve an get the information they previously got via api from parsing the webpage directly ?


not a webdev, but I don't see why not
tho I imagine it would require more maintenance effort than using standard api


You are right , a simple filter algorithm that decides which bits of data it keeps and which it discards would have to be adapted almost every time they make changes to the website.

But if you make the thing as a ranking algorithm based on Markov-chains that applies probabilities to bits of data, it can be made adaptive, and even use User signals to help it adjust. User signals can be as simple as giving the users a try-agin-button if it doesn't render correctly.

User signal inputs have to be grouped into User bias-groups, so that if bots are used to insert noise into the ranking signals, they just group together in noise-groups and all the regular users group together in a human group.

This is 2 technical generations before machine learning stuff, so a 20 year old trick.
Maybe that's doable.

File: 1608525876036.png ( 5.37 KB , 100x100 , XMPP.png )


Tech nerds will not comprise the entirety of the revolution. We know this. It's going to include a lot of normies, who can't exactly communicate and coordinate everything through text messaging. As we also know, we live in a world of mass surveillance. We have to give normies options for communicating that can protect themselves from the corporate surveillance state. This thread is for evaluating those options. I am currently looking at phone conferencing options and can't make up my mind on these:
-some Matrix protocol tool
-some XMPP protocol tool

What I really want is something supporting phone call-ins, for stupid old people who cannot into computers. Phone OS support may also be important. Some options are more suited to these things than others. Maybe even better ones than I've listed. Discuss, please.

Welcome, Don't mind the uyghurs like >>11301

We're glad to have new faces around here. Make sure you read the rules sticky on /leftypol/ so you know what we're about. Free speech leftist board.


Can someone explain to me the difference between Matrix and XMPP?
Both are client-server based. Both support chat, voice, video. Both support encryption.
So why the FUCK two of them get shilled at the same time? I already have Whatsapp/Skype/Signal/Viber/Zoom/Telegram/Wechat/Whathefuckelse, why yes give me ANOTHER two! Retard!






One is obscure and next to no one uses it. The other is especially obscure and even fewer people use it.

You WILL use Pipewire
You WILL use Wayland
You WILL use systemD
You WILL install everything from Flatpak
You WILL use GTK
You WILL NOT have thumbnails in the filepicker
You WILL use btrfs
You WILL accept the code of conduct

>what's the catch?
oh and something else, all packages in guix have to be "bootstrapped", meaning built from pure source code, because there's a method of inserting malware into a binary called a thompson compiler attack. guix is basically the only distro that is completely committed to being secure against this vulnerability so they don't package programs using languages that are not bootstrapped (this includes kotlin, ada, and javascript), so you can't package those things until you bootstrap the language first.

also KDE isn't available on guix yet. there's a patchset for it on the mailing list that is still being reviewed.

and selinux doesn't work on guix/nix, if you care about that


>so you can't package those things until you bootstrap the language first.
there's actually a channel for beta-quality packages that upstream won't accept, you might be able to find it there or submit patches to them


>there are undercover cops roaming around the net
Lol, hi, Officer!




>pulled 2GB runtime for a 90MB binary

Ok, lads, I need to vent.

Why the FUCK is every fucking shithole on the www is trying to make my life as much miserable as possible?

Try to view aurora store homepage from tor - Forbidden. Try to do it from a vpn - stuck at the loading screen. Try to view some reddit thread - everything is falling apart at the seams. Oh, just FUCK OFF!

Every fucking shithole is making gorillion connections to some fucking cdn network, every fucking shithole is so heavy with js that I can almost hear it shitting its pants when trying to load a two paragraph page.

every fucking shithole is using cloudflare that forces me to solve retarded google captcha 10 times that doesn't even make sense I clicked on the fucking boat GODDAMIT! GIVE ME A BREAK!!
and it's getting even worse, now sometimes it doesn't even give me any captcha and just blocks my ass, nhentai I'm looking at you bitch

with every year internet becomes more and more unusable, I might as well install windows that connects to M$ servers over 5000 times a day and then resells this data to gorillion third parties and be fucking done with it
every fucking shithole wants your email, phone number, or whatever the fuck anyway

How is this better than Invidious?


freetube is a standalone desktop app, even tho Electron based

you need to self-host invidious, or use someone else's instance
instances tend to go down and be slow as fuck, buffering like a motherfucker when youtube embed flies

freetube local youtube scraper backend is as fast as embed, and it can fallback to invidious instances in case of failure

also, it allows local subscriptions, remembers history, playback state, etc, etc etc

and it frees your browser for actual browsing

only thing is lacks are proper tabs, it only has separate windows as of now, but it's still in beta


oh, and also freetube can buffer the whole video and is not limited by your browser cache
and in general it's fast and smooth


>freetube is a standalone desktop app
>instances tend to go down and be slow as fuck
There are always more of them.
>freetube local youtube scraper backend is as fast as embed, and it can fallback to invidious instances in case of failure
That's a legitimately nice feature.
>also, it allows local subscriptions, remembers history, playback state, etc, etc etc
Fuck all that.
>and it frees your browser for actual browsing
Yeah, but so do tabs.
I just download the videos and then watch them. Playing it back in VLC lets me skip around in the video at will.

You know what a program like FreeTube would be good for? PornHub. Make soemthing like that for PornHub and other online porn sites, and you would crash the internet porn industry with no survivors.


>what do you mean "recorded live-streams"? it plays both live-streams and recorded video alright for me
It plays livestreams for me too, but only if i know their specific title or link and search for it. I'm asking about discovery. As in going to a channel page and then looking for what's been uploaded to it. In those cases i don't see any way to find live-streams i don't already know about.

Guys are there any keygen or something for HAAS machines' option codes? I can't buy it anymore because i live in country with which HAAS stopped all business relations



Can't you buy options through Kazakhstan or Belarus or somethin?

Anyway, don't think there is a keygen, as codes are unique per machine, and I imagine it would lock up if you try to brutforce it

you would need to hack the OS or something


russians are stuck with chinese equipment now
you better start learning kanji because they're not known for their customer support lmao


> as codes are unique per machine
well yeah but looks like code depends only on serial number and model, so it sounds possible. moreover, as i know there are some people who already did it, but of course they won't share information
> you would need to hack the OS or something
their main board has NXP Coldfire CPU and architecture is really similar to Motorola 68k. i tried to decompile their public firmware, but didn't find anything. also there are some FPGAs on the main board
