Recently I just refunded all Poster's sales from Gumroad. Being that said, I decided to not using that service anymore.— Wilbert Liu \U0001f468\U0001f3fb\u200d\U0001f3a8 (@wilbertliu) November 19, 2018
Here's a little story \U0001f447\U0001f3fb
When you see localhost up there, you should know that it's truly an experiment! 😀
It's a dead-simple thread writer that will post a series of tweets a.k.a tweetstorm. ⚡️
I've been personally wanting it myself since few months ago, but neglected it intentionally to make sure it's something that I genuinely need.
So why is that important for me? 🙂
I've been a believer of a story. I tell stories all the time, whether it's in the real world or online like this. Our society has moved by that.
If you're interested by stories that move us, read Sapiens!
One of the stories that I've told was from the launch of Poster.
It's been launched multiple times this year, and Twitter has been my go-to place to tell the world about that.
Here comes my frustration.. 😤
The story doesn\u2019t say you were told not to... it says you did so without approval and they tried to obfuscate what you found. Is that true?— Sarah Frier (@sarahfrier) November 15, 2018
In the spring and summer of 2016, as reported by the Times, activity we traced to GRU was reported to the FBI. This was the standard model of interaction companies used for nation-state attacks against likely US targeted.
In the Spring of 2017, after a deep dive into the Fake News phenomena, the security team wanted to publish an update that covered what we had learned. At this point, we didn’t have any advertising content or the big IRA cluster, but we did know about the GRU model.
This report when through dozens of edits as different equities were represented. I did not have any meetings with Sheryl on the paper, but I can’t speak to whether she was in the loop with my higher-ups.
In the end, the difficult question of attribution was settled by us pointing to the DNI report instead of saying Russia or GRU directly. In my pre-briefs with members of Congress, I made it clear that we believed this action was GRU.

👩⚖️ Healthcare "Lawyers"
If health insurance screws you over, no one has your back but you. Instead, can pay a small monthly fee to a service to take care of BS like this for you should issues arise.
👩🏾💻 By 2020, I was headhunted into a VP role in a global tech company @Brandwatch
🤖 I achieved this progression in less than a decade, without ANY coding skills
🔮 How did I do it?
🤓 I established a track record of results.
💪🏾 No magic formula can replace hard work: do your job well & hit all the targets you are set.
😬 When you're struggling, ask for help so you can stay on track to get results, or collaboratively adjust targets.
🎨 I stayed creative.
🧙🏿♀️ When challenges arose I was bold enough to try new solutions. Not everything worked, but constantly trying produced valuable innovations.
🧠 I was proactive in finding new, better ways to get the job done.
🤩 I was a self-promoter. I recorded my achievements & ensured they were mentioned in any performance / compensation reviews.
😎 I put myself forward for any opportunities to gain recognition e.g. speaking opportunities or awards.
👀I actively worked on gaining visibility.
🙂 I was myself. Some say you need to be ruthless to succeed. I don't buy it. I'm a nice person so I'm nice at work, too.
❤️ I didn't fake it. I always acted on my values, and spoke up when something didn't feel right. I showed integrity.
🤗 I was a team player. To everyone.
At the heart of this lies the most important technique in modern deep learning - transfer learning.
Let's analyze how it
THREAD: Can you start learning cutting-edge deep learning without specialized hardware? \U0001f916— Radek Osmulski (@radekosmulski) February 11, 2021
In this thread, we will train an advanced Computer Vision model on a challenging dataset. \U0001f415\U0001f408 Training completes in 25 minutes on my 3yrs old Ryzen 5 CPU.
Let me show you how...
2/ For starters, let's look at what a neural network (NN for short) does.
An NN is like a stack of pancakes, with computation flowing up when we make predictions.
How does it all work?
3/ We show an image to our model.
An image is a collection of pixels. Each pixel is just a bunch of numbers describing its color.
Here is what it might look like for a black and white image
4/ The picture goes into the layer at the bottom.
Each layer performs computation on the image, transforming it and passing it upwards.
5/ By the time the image reaches the uppermost layer, it has been transformed to the point that it now consists of two numbers only.
The outputs of a layer are called activations, and the outputs of the last layer have a special meaning... they are the predictions!

As per Skanda Puran, Kartikeya had narrated to Muni Agastya about the signs of the coming death. This is as per this ancient scripture.
If one experiences the air coming out of right nostril continuously then it is observed that the person dies within three years. If the breathing is continuous towards upper side from both the nostrils, then the person can die within two three days.
If the breathing is through the mouth instead of the nostrils then the person may live only for two days. The person should take into coignance these signs of the occurance of any sudden death.
As per astrology when the Surya is in the 7th house and Chandrama is in its own house and the breathing is only through the right nostril then the danger exists. If you see a yellow black coloured figure who becomes invisible immediately then the life span is limited to 2 years.
If any person sneezes, passes urine, stool and semen all together he has only a year more to live. If a person sees blue coloured snakes flying in the sky then he has only six more months to live. If a person sees any thing opposite to its real self like colours

2 Research conditions are theoretical and/or idealized. A huge problem for so-called NLP or AI startups with highly credentialed academic founders is that they bring limited knowledge of what it takes to build real products outside the lab.
3 A product is ultimately a thing that people pay for - not just cool technology or user experience. But I’m not even talking about knowledge gaps in go-to-market work. I'm talking purely technical gaps: how you go from science project to performant + delightful user experience.
4 Most commoditized NLP packages solve well-understood problems in standard ways that sacrifice either precision or performance. In a research lab, this is not usually a hard trade-off; in general, no one is using what you make, so performance is less important than precision.
5 In software, when you’re making something for real people to use, these tradeoffs are a big deal. Especially if you’re asking those people to pay for what you’ve made (can’t get away from that pesky GTM thinking). They expect quality, which includes precision AND performance.
