So... Here goes nothing.
I'm looking for an animated (hand drawn?) music video with a weird 70's sci-fi theme.
I'm not sure if the video was from that time or if it's newer, but made to look old.
From what I remember it was somewhat dark and surrealistic (besides the sci-fi).
The video somewhat stuck with me, the artist and song name not so much.
I was at a sci-fi exposition not so long ago and I've been thinking about the video ever since.
I guess someone once posted it as a reply to the SOTW, but there are quite a few of those so it's somewhat hard to find.
Must've been two or three years ago I guess...
Of course I can't remember who posted it in the first place, that would've made things a lot easier...
Was it you, @David-ONeil (you're my first guess since you're into weird stuff (and that's a compliment ))?
Could have been any of the Daft Punk anime vids, but I believe you'd remember them due to popularity. Popularity probably also rules out A-Ha's Take On Me. From stuff I've tagged, maybe Helsing Ultimate, but I don't remember posting it. Maybe Monolith or Equinoxious? Those two are on the Are Sounds Electric video list, which has a bunch of eclectic stuff in it, for hours of going down rabbit holes if you wish. There was some vid about a boy and/or girl, going into/up a pyramid and becoming perfected or something like that, which I've forgotten and don't have a link to. A couple others dimly ring in my consciousness, but can't recall them well enough to even search. If all else fails, maybe something from this list will get your mind off of it. Good luck!
Of course I know Daft Punk, A-HA and the Prodigy, those weren't what I was looking for.
I didn't know Monolith and Equinoxious. They aren't what I was looking for either, but they sound good!
What's that blue fins-as-ears alien on the Are Sounds Electric page?
It looks strangely familiar... Although I don't think that's what I'm looking for either
Mike Lee Williams, Software Engineer at Cloudera, describing AI ML programming with PyMC3, said: [^] :
You don’t find yourself writing a lot of for loops, or the order in which things need to happen: you simply describe the world and press go, and the probabilistic programming language figures out the implications of that.
William has a Ph.D. in Astrophysics, and there's content on statistics (history, Bayes, Monte Carlo etc.) in the podcast I really enjoyed.
Salvador Dali said: "Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings."
My question is: can a PyMC3 bird you just pressed "go" on fly ?
I marvel at the "brave new world" of these exotic new programming tools, methods, algorithms, languages ... I imagine them as "Eaters of Streams" (EOS), which, for me, resonates with the image of the "dawn horse," Eohippus. But, maybe that's unfair, because that dog-sized forest herbivore went extinct after less than beaucoup de millenia, before they even had a chance to put their hoof down (they had toesies).
But, I am not troubled by the likelihood I will exit this adventure in consciousness in the biological fun-house of a hominid body without seeing the future "stallions" evolved from these prototypes that I suspect will create as much of a "black swan" discontinuity for homo saps as did the domestication of the horse in the great steppes of central Asia.
I will now descend to lower altitudes

intelligence itself... I would say no, this is a quality.
But to improve and be "more clever", I say yes. To start learning the unknown (for you at least) requires a certain ambition.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I fully agree with this. However, I also like to argue, so...
Could you not argue that although your maximum capacity for intelligence may be fixed, you would only be able to achieve you full potential if you keep your brain active and in shape? (This would be were the ambition/motivation comes in to play).
By intelligence, I assume the OP wanted to talk about fluid intelligence (the ability to think new without relying on previous experiences).
When it comes to crystallized intelligence one must apply previous experiences (knowledge) to newer situations, in that case, you'd be correct to point out that ambition is necessary.
