What do you think about learning the North Korean dialect of Korean?

>>5707 I just think it's an awful language, that's it.
>>5710 Fair enough.
>>5709 You proof is a bunch of drawings in a pro-NATO anti-communist museum which just repeat standard anti-communist propaganda?
>>5723 There were drawings but I’m talking about the photographs. You chagrin my sources yet you spout your regimes rhetoric. Do you think I don’t know that NATO is a failure? I’m not there to masturbate, I’m there to pay respect.
>>5731 Anti-communists routinely use photos of famines in British India to depict Soviet famines. They have even less credibility when it comes to the DPRK.

Royal Rumble Edition, I guess. Even though we won't get enough activity to have multiple editions. I haven't watched any wrestling in at least half a year, but the Rumble is tonight and that's always my favorite PPV. I normally at least watch the last RAW and Smackdown before a PPV, but I'm so out of it that I didn't even bother to do that, so I have no clue what the current angles are. I watched NWA for a while but haven't liked what I've seen from AEW. Any other white trash comrades who like fake fights?
WOOOOOO

Essay writing / academic skills Comrade 10/15/2019 (Tue) 14:32:20 No. 24 [Reply] [Last]
Hey /e/

Im a brainlet prole that recently got a scholarships to university, and Im wondering if there are any resources that you could recommend to improve general academic skills with an emphasis on essay writing. I've done a general scan for books and courses on libgen and TPB. But I wanted to get some advise with a left perspective. When I say brainlet I mean dyslexic and when I say prole I mean any unskilled job I can land (bar work, kitchen work, construction, etc.) My degree is in healthcare and administration.

Part of good writing is simply writing a lot. The more you write, the more mistakes you will catch, and the more you will learn to recognize those mistakes before they happen. Writing a lot is all about developing good approaches and habits towards writing. I work in a science and I have atrociously unproductive habits towards writing and I found this short, easy-to-read book helpful.

let's talk about web development. i have skills in HTML CSS and Javascript as a hobbyst. i want to change career. https://careerfoundry.com/ what does /hobby/ think of this course? relatable? what are the skills necessary to land a developer job? what do you guys think of this: https://techcrunch.com/2016/05/10/please-dont-learn-to-code/ is psychological terrorism? the market it's full or there are possibilities to be employed even if you don't have a college degree? what is going on actually in the industry? everything related to web development.
If you're an OK web developer, you've read stuff about writing clean code, and are constantly thinking about how you could've made your work cleaner, there is more than enough work. I know a lot of developers, most of them are mediocre and I wouldn't hire them at my own company. 20% are really bad, 80% are mediocre at best, 20% are good and I would hire them. Of around 50-80 developers that I know, only 1 has a shitty paying job. The rest have jobs that pay pretty good. None have trouble finding jobs. I've tried scouting for frontend developers, there are none that actually know how to code, 90% of them bullshit their way through jobs and are very very unkowledgable about the craft. I suck at frontend development, and I still know more than they do. There's a shit ton of jobs out there and not enough developers, let alone competent ones. Finally, to become a good developer, you have to practice a lot. The best practice comes from work. Don't be scared of asking for jobs that don't pay well at first.

Instead of buying a course you could try pirating it. if you can't get a VPN try direct downloading. You can find a bunch of sites hosting rapidgator, nitroflare, etc. Just use duck duck go to search 'Rapidgator/nitroflare java tutorial' The best thing to do is install Jdownloader2 and let the downloads play in the background. If you have to buy a premium account use link snappy >https://www.tutorial-dl.com/?s=html If you don't want to pirate you can try edx free courses or 'free CS degree' list made online >https://www.edx.org/learn/html >https://github.com/ossu/computer-science Also pic related is a file sharing group I'm in. You can't get invited, but I can post some courses here as mega links
>>5414 Are any of these courses good? I feel a lot of them are shit. Related: does anyone know good resources to learn web development for people who already know how to code?

Hey you! Imagine it's Christmas/Kwanzaa/the Jew thing one year from now and you are sitting at the table with your family and you introduce your girlfriend/boyfriend to them. Let's talk about audio recognition and text-to-speech software, chatbots, and what other functions a robot friend should have. Clock? Vacuum cleaner? I just want to make clear one thing right at the start: This is not a sexbot thread. Building a sexbot looks like an awesome quest to many, but I realized it's a pointless one because of Anon's Law: Any AI advanced enough to attract me like a human-flesh character wouldn't want to have sex with me anyway.

Since non-human animals can do the "task" of companionship and people have lower expectations in terms of mental complexity when dealing with animals, a robot pet looks like the more achievable approach for those who want to build a companion robot. People living in cities may prefer a robot pet to an actual animal since there's a lack of open spaces. Indoors life means less demanding design requirements: less extreme temperature range than outside, flat ground, no rain. With that established I propose… opeNeko Picture a thing looking like a black cat, but a non-furry version with a more geometric shape. The head is a perfect orb with triangle ears and big expressive eye-lights with brows showing a variety of emotions (and also battery status). When the head moves what actually happens is that the eye-lights that are under the orb and shining through it are moving around and the ears are moved by magnets under the surface in tandem with the eyes while the orb is still. CatControl: A wristwatch with a few extra functions to control the cat… well actually that's just marketing hyperbole. If you could perfectly control the cat-robot, it wouldn't be very cat-like. You can influence where the cat goes by projecting a light, you can also pause or mute the cat. I'm unsure about what else you can do with it, but I'm certain you can't control its facial expressions. The cat knows when you use this. Using cat controls excessively can get a very unhappy reaction. CatClock: Sitting upright in its docking station and with the wristwatch around its neck, it functions like a clock. CatClean: Imagine something looking somewhat like a Roomba – and it basically is a Roomba, except the cat pilots it. I wonder what the tail could be like: Variable length? Attachable to things to drag them behind? Used like a periscope? There are LED sticks out there that can spell out a message while the stick swings back and forth, hmmm…
>>4709 What is the consensus here on the Chinese room arguments? Does it have any basis on the difference of sentient AIs and simulation of them? Or the the concept of "being self-aware" a spook in of itself?
>>4895 Suppose some super-special Startrek-science device could target a random molecule in your body and delete it. Even in your *spooky music* braaaaaaaaaaaaiiiin. One or two molecules, would that make any practical difference for your life? I don't believe it. Likewise, a room full of people who follow convoluted instructions that in the aggregate amount to an ability to process and answer a question in Chinese can be thought of as a brain of sorts, even if no single person in it is able to understand the conversation. The room and the people within it as a whole have that particular intelligence, one must suffer from bourgie ultra-individualism to not get that. We don't need to think of some hypothetical room, there are many big projects existing in the real world that are only possible due to intelligent group activity. Group intelligence exists and it can be a quite distinct phenomenon from individual intelligence (so that describing that as merely thinking faster doesn't properly describe what happens at the group level, as is obvious to children – though not necessarily to philosophy professors). Ah, you might say, this is not sufficient as a rebuttal, since the original Chinese-room argument is about a single person following rules without understanding Chinese… But this is false. It just isn't synchronous group work. Somebody designed the things that the person in the room works with in order to answer. To say that the Chinese room (meaning the person and the human-made tools together) can't answer in Chinese in that story would be wrong, it is established in the story that it happens. And to claim in protest against my assertion that the room gets Chinese that this or that element of the Chinese room doesn't understand and so the room can't understand amounts to saying that you can't truly be aware of this or that because not every molecule in your brain is aware of that, or that a rock band can't be the creators of a song because no individual in the band knows how to play each instrument the band plays in the song, etc.
>>4908 One more paragraph: All what the muh-Chinese-room AI skeptic does is pointing at one screw of the robot, asserts that the screw by itself is pretty stupid (fair enough), and then calls that one screw the robot, and asserts the robot can't be truly intelligent. But just like that, you can point at particles of him and call them stupid. Particle 1 is stupid by itself, particle 2 is stupid by itself, particle 84785798375899748471987498479857 is stupid by itself. Adding zeros together makes zero in sum. You are stupid QED.
