I always claim that cat hair completes the outfit...
My wife doesn't agree, though
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
Our house (2500 square feet) is almost entirely hardwood floors. The only carpet is on the staircase.
Between one elderly female long-haired cat who yaks up her weight in hairballs every week and two greyhounds that "blow coat" in a continuous cloud, vacuuming our floors requires emptying the canister on the vacuum cleaner 8 or 10 times during the job, which takes a couple of hours.
I've used three of my articles (so far) in a WPF project today, and the app is coming along quickly. It's an entity factory that allows the dev to select a stored proc and generate a model (with attribute decorated properties if desired), and optionally, a view model from the returned dataset. It's kind of a mix between the ADO.Net component, and an SSIS package import package, and results in code that can be copy/pasted into a project file, in fully functional form.
It felt so good writing a desktop app that I think I'm gonna need a cigarette...

Deep learning is a subset of machine learning, which is a field dedicated to the study and development of machines that can learn (sometimes with the goal of eventually attaining general artificial intelligence).
In industry, deep learning is used to solve practical tasks in a variety of fields such as computer vision (image), natural language processing (text), and automatic speech recognition (audio). In short, deep learning is a subset of methods in the machine learning toolbox, primarily using artificial neural networks, which are a class of algorithm loosely inspired by the human brain.
I once read an interesting blog that AI doesn't exist and is just a marketing trick to sell ML.
The term AI in itself is problematic since no one really knows what intelligence is or how to measure it.
"Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."
So... Is a computer intelligent if it can swim, climb a tree, do basic math, survive in the jungle...?
We have self driving cars and computers that can "learn" games such as Super Mario, but those are really just ML (image recognition and trial and error until something works).
How can you create something that you don't understand and how do you know if you succeeded if you can't measure it?
Too bad I can't find that blog anymore, you'd find it interesting.
I think it was a reaction to people such as Elon Musk saying AI is dangerous.
