Screenshot Saturday Sundays: Mapmakers, mushrooms and unfortunate fashion

It’s a mood captured by the title of Swietanski’s latest Itch release, 2019’s Caged Bird Don’t Fly Caught In A Wire Sing Like A Good Canary Come When Called, a work in which this screen certainly stands in conversation with.

Moving on from things that shouldn’t move across ordinary spaces, we’re hopping into a perfectly normal car in an imperfectly broken highway.

Since releasing lovely picturebook excursion Au Fil De L’eau, Aurox’s work has chilled somewhat.

We’re once again visited by Au Fil De L’eau developer Samson Auroux this week, this time with a brief dabble in map-drawing.

This week: pastel cartography, mycelium cottages, data-corrupted highways from hell and squirrels.

RTutor: How much less effective are publicly assigned lawyers

They suggest that hiring yourself a good lawyer can be quite expensive but may have a big impact on the verdict.

They collected a comprehensive data set of criminal cases from Bexar County, Texas with many background variables on case characteristics and attorneys.

Of course there can be different reasons for this difference: Using the large number of background variables and the fact that many lawyers work both as assigned and privately hired attorneys, the authors are able to distinguish the different reasons to a large extend.

As part of his Master Thesis at Ulm University, Artemij Cadov has generated a very nice RTutor problem set that allows you to replicate this fascinating analysis in an interactive fashion in R. Like in previous RTutor problem sets, you can enter free R code in a web based shiny app.

To locally install the problem set, follow the installation guide at the problem set’s Github repository: you want to learn more about RTutor, to try out other problem sets, or to create a problem set yourself, take a look at or at the Github page

Flashback: HTC One X bet on music star power and a custom imaging chip, but lost

HTC One X The One X used a polycarbonate shell instead with a pebble-like design rooted in smooth curves front and back.

While the material fell out of fashion, polycarbonate was superior to the typical plastics used at the time – reviewers and buyers alike commented how much more premium the HTC felt compared to its rival, the Samsung Galaxy S III (which had a smooth plastic exterior, but a similar pebble-like design).

HTC One X (4.7" ) sized up against the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (4.65") and the HTC One S (4.3") Polycarbonate was often left with a matte surface that was soft and warm to the touch, compared to the cold hard metal and glass that became common later on.

And HTC wanted to leverage that to set itself up as the premium, music-loving brand among other Android makers (and Windows Phone, but that’s a story for another time).

In the end the HTC One X has been all but buried by the sands of time, remembered only by those who used it or wanted it but couldn’t afford it.

Wikimedia Announcements] Announcing a new Wikimedia project: Abstract Wikipedia

[Wikimedia Announcements] Announcing a new Wikimedia project: Abstract Wikipedia Katherine Maher kmaher at wikimedia.org Thu Jul 2 15:56:02 UTC 2020 (A translatable version of this announcement can be found on Meta [1]) Hi all, It is my honor to introduce Abstract Wikipedia [1], a new project that has been unanimously approved by the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees.

Abstract Wikipedia proposes a new way to generate baseline encyclopedic content in a multilingual fashion, allowing more contributors and more readers to share more knowledge in more languages.

It is an approach that aims to make cross-lingual cooperation easier on our projects, increase the sustainability of our movement through expanding access to participation, improve the user experience for readers of all languages, and innovate in free knowledge by connecting some of the strengths of our movement to create something new.

Abstract Wikipedia was submitted as a project proposal by Denny Vrandečić in May of 2020 [2] after years of preparation and research, leading to a detailed plan and lively discussions in the Wikimedia communities.

Every language Wikipedia community will be free to choose and moderate whether or how they would use content from this project.

Harmonix's Fuser is a music creation tool disguised as a game

To satisfy Fuser's requirements as a game, I sometimes ended up building mixes I personally didn't like, even though most tasks are open to your interpretation, like "play a song from the 2010s" or "only use three discs".

At times, the software defiantly works against you to make something it deems acceptable, too: I did try my best to break the game, but if something doesn't go with the rest, Fuser is likely to just mute sections of the offending disc or use it to replace the track it's at odds with.

The fact that making points and making something that sounds good can at times be mutually exclusive is Fuser's one big letdown.

Sure, it keeps you on your feet, but it gives you very little time to just enjoy the music for a bit or wait until the song has reached a good point for a break.

Fuser is such a departure for Harmonix not only because it ditches the dexterity challenge of classic rhythm gaming, but because the developer is actively trying to reach players who either aren't interested in music gaming as a test of skill, or are unable or unwilling to invest in peripherals by basing everything around your controller only.

Summer may decide fate of leading shots in vaccine race

People on six continents already are getting jabs in the arm as the race for a COVID-19 vaccine enters a defining summer, with even bigger studies poised to prove if any shot really works -- and maybe offer a reality check.

Already British and Chinese researchers are chasing the coronavirus beyond their borders, testing potential vaccines in Brazil and the United Arab Emirates because there are too few new infections at home to get clear answers.

Vaccines by Sinovac Biotech and SinoPharm use that old-fashioned technology, which requires high-security labs to produce but is dependable, the way polio shots and some flu vaccines are made.

Only if the virus starts spreading through a community several weeks after volunteers receive either a vaccine or a dummy shot -- time enough for the immune system to rev up -- do scientists have the best chance at comparing which group had more illness.

In addition to the planned U.S.-run study, Brazil last week began a last-stage test of the Oxford shot in 5,000 health workers, the first experimental COVID-19 vaccinations in South America.

Gucci takes on esports fashion with a $1,600 Fnatic dive watch

Gucci doesn’t want to sit by the wayside while Louis Vuitton corners the (apparently substantial) market for esports fashion.

It just introduced a limited edition, Fnatic-branded dive watch — no, not a smartwatch, a quartz timepiece.

It not-so-subtly features the esports team’s logo and orange color scheme, along with Gucci’s signature “GG” (which, conveniently, is also gamer shorthand).

There are even plans for a matching diving game devoted to the watch that will show up in Gucci’s app in the “coming weeks.”

The watch appears well-built, at least.

See the future of online shopping. It looks nothing like Amazon

Thanks to the coronavirus, buyers from department stores and boutiques couldn’t visit the brand’s physical showroom in Milan to explore the brand’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection and place orders.

Buyers can scan through the brand’s entire Spring/Summer 2021 collection, get a 360-degree look at each garment, inspect textures close-up, and even look at tags that convey useful information, such as price and a garment’s composition.

So the brand’s leadership quickly came up with a new plan: They partnered with the consultancy Accenture to design an immersive virtual showroom that looks very similar to the real thing, where people can saunter around mask-free, without worrying about social distancing.

But the Italian denim brand Diesel offers a tantalizing alternative: a digital showroom that takes online shopping to a new level, incorporating some of the best parts of physical retail.

Three decades later, most brands—from major department stores like Nordstrom to newer brands like Everlane—feature rows upon rows of garments, which the consumer must scour by filtering through categories.

Crafting A Character : Hearthstone’s New Demon Hunter Aranna Starseeker

While many of Hearthstone’s single-player content chunks can have a paid aspect to them, the giant 5-act structure of Ashes of Outland is totally free, and features Aranna at the helm of a band of misfits as they work across the wastelands to take on the big bad leader, who in this case isn’t a giant dude in a hockey mask but instead, in very Hearthstone fashion, a mecha-demon.

Aranna is the younger sister of Elise Starseeker, so she's kind of living in the shadow of her big sister who just saved the world in our last set of expansions.

Kosak: Looking through the characters in World of Warcraft and Legion, we didn't think there was a standout character that embodied what we wanted to get in a Hearthstone hero.

This week, a character that could have way more impact if she ever crosses over into the World of Warcraft is here – Aranna Starseeker, a bold new demon hunter that comes alongside a free single-player campaign experience where you dive into her character and companions as they embark on a Shakespearean Mad Max journey across the Outlands.

Hearthstone has experimented with all kinds of content and characters over the years, from tavern brawls to dungeon crawls, single-player experiences to the auto-battler Battlegrounds.

Neural Networks Can Be Taught to Handle Order and Chaos

A neural network is an advanced kind of artificial intelligence mimicking the neurons found in our brains.

In a similar fashion, artificial neurons attribute biases and numeric values to certain connections during the training phase.

One drawback of these neural-network systems is that they don't respond well to chaos, this is also referred to as chaos blindness.

If we implement Hamiltonian mechanics into neural-networks' understanding, it can analyze the movement of the ball entirely, meaning it can look at where it was at what time and can determine where it will be headed next.

SEE ALSO: 10 OF THE MOST IMPORTANT EQUATIONS IN HISTORY As John Lindner puts it: “The Hamiltonian is really the ‘special sauce’ that gives neural networks the ability to learn order and chaos.”
