I’ve curated my Twitter feed to keep me up to date with my interests, and I’m stoked that other people enjoy the same things that I do & decide to follow my feed too. I cover a variety of technology, data science, and gaming interests… things that I like. Now before I drop make this point don’t get me wrong; I love animals. I’ve been a vegetarian, sometimes vegan, for…

Here’s a copy of the code I have working for the OpenAI GPT-2 1558M model A couple of changes to the source code that were required to get it to execute: tensorflow-gpu==1.12.0 wouldn’t work, updated to: !pip3 install tensorflow-gpu==1.16.0 interactive_conditional_samples.py updated to: model_name=’1558M’ https://github.com/AmbiguousError/gpt-2/blob/master/gpt_2_1558M.ipynb

I had to see what the GPT-2 1558M model thought of Death Stranding, here’s a Guardian article I sourced the first couple of paragraphs from: Death Stranding review โ€“ Hideo Kojima’s radically tough slow-burning epic Model prompt Death Stranding defies convention, focusing on โ€œconnectionโ€ over combat and (almost) removing the notion of restarting a mission when things go wrong. Case in point: I failed to plan a delivery route and…

Excited to hear about the release of Open AI’s 1.5 Billion GPT-2 model, had to take it for a test drive. Couldn’t produce a trained model on my own text as yet, but I did manage to load the 1558M model into Google Colab and run a couple of conditional samples. I grabbed the text from a Guardian articles on the flooding in Doncaster: Severe flood warnings remain in Midlands…

My Raspberry Pi Python Twitter bot stopped posting last night. After I had strong words with it, and told it to pick up its game I deleted the cache database file and let it rebuild the history. This is something that I really need to fix, as my PiHole shows that my bot has made approx 191,383 calls to the twitter api in the last 24 hours… touch wood I’m…

Hardware issues with my Linux box, wanna be gaming rig. A single Windows 10 partition is kept for a one reason; Elite:Dangerous. But for the past 6 months I’ve not been able to play, Windows crashes each time I open it up. I know I’ve had overheating problems in the past, installed a couple of new cooling fans and heaps of silver thermal paste, but today I bit the bullet…

PS4 ejecting disks automatically fixed by tightening the manual eject screw… this was a real challenge to find; I even doubted that the instructions were correct for my PS4 model… one of the times when the light on my phone came in useful. This solution seemed to have worked until this afternoon when it repeated; will have to tighten a couple more revolutions ๐Ÿ™‚

Updated to Ubuntu Budgie 19.10… and no reboot! Windows could learn so much from Linux do-release-upgrade -c didn’t work, but a visit to Synaptic Package Manager and installing all of the upgrades worked a treat ๐Ÿ™‚ Now to explore the new updates… Everything Important Associated to Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine/ Now I’m not going to format my hard drive just yet to enable a faster boot time by enabling LZ4…

… or partial ones at least ๐Ÿ™‚ Firebase Auto ML I’ve managed to create a simple Android app using Firebase Auto ML, that now detects Paw Patrol pups with a decent success rate. This success would have blown me away a year ago, sad now given exposure to Auto ML and Google’s sophisticated tools I just think this is ok… but I do have a couple of hypotheses to test…

Firebase AutoML

10/13/2019

So this weekend my Twitter bot dropped this link onto my feed: Firebase ML Kit: AutoML Vision Edge I’m currently working with auto ML in a professional manner, trialing both H2O and Azures Auto ML packages, so this piqued my interest! Having built mobile apps before in the early days of Android, and looking for a project to play with again, the timing of this was perfect. I’m still messing…
