So yesterday a guy who graduated from our college and now works at Intel gave a motivational and technical talk, and during the talk, he spoke of the incredible importance of learning Python because it's used everywhere in the process (he couldn't go into specifics due to NDAs).
So after a quick search today, I learn that Python is literally used for everything, program/app development, FULL STACK web development, Machine learning and AI, and apparently somewhere in the process of the XEON quality check, etc.
What the fuck?
Why is python so versatile?
I always thought it was some C++ mod which main advantage was a simple sintax.

Python is retard-tier easy to read and write. It also has a large catalog of fast libraries written in C.
Slow to execute but fast to write.
The real answer is the support ecosystem. This is the same reason why people used Perl back in the day: CPAN has an immense library of whatever thing you want to make. It just so happens Python is now larger than Perl.
You sound like you'd enjoy my python package in your mouth
Python is built on top of C libraries and you can leverage them for heavy lift work when you need it, but for unimportant tasks is very easy to pick up and churn something that gets it out of your way. If the dumpster fire dependency management had been sorted out in the Python 2 to 3 jump there'd be much less reasons to use anything but Go, Python and C (and JS unfortunately).

name@pop-os:~$ cat /etc/shells
# /etc/shells: valid login shells

These are just symlinks to their /usr/bin counterparts
This is just a symlink to /usr/bin/dash
This is the debian almquist shell, an implementation of the posix sh standard. Scripts and packages should use this if possible for portability and performance reasons. https://manpages.debian.org/unstable/dash/dash.1.en.html
An autistic restricted bash for hardened scripts. Almost nothing actually uses it. https://manpages.debian.org/unstable/bash/rbash.1.en.html.
gnu borne again shell, the slowest but most capable linux shell, certainly your login shell unless you know otherwise.
Technically, you can symlink all of those to bash, and everything would still work fine, but some scripts would run slightly slower and it's not the """debian way"""
Thanks anon, I think I get some of them now
What I don't get is the need to have symlinks to their /usr/ counterparts though, what's the purpose of that? Is it for redundancy in case the /usr/ directory gets deleted?
Symlinks are pointers, not copies, so if /usr is deleted you're fucked. To the contrary it's like that because about a decade ago most distros decided to merge the whole "operating system" (sans config files) into one folder for the purposes of being able to cleanly mount and unmount different /usr disks. I don't know exactly whose usecase this caters to and the FHS standard still hasn't been updated to allow it, so you end up with this weird situation where everyone conforms to it except in that one way, but I guess it's cool it's possible. https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/TheCaseForTheUsrMerge

The ”extremely advanced” image AIs don’t model even simple constraints and their spatial reasoning is abysmal. Nobody has a clue on how to fix these fundamental issues even if on a surface level the results are quite impressive.
Its not just this year. Things have been taking off in AI for the last decade. I mean, AlphaGo and and the few bots before are almost 10 years old now.
The AI winter was before that because computing power wasn't there to train the types of models theorized to achieve these feats. Hence why its the massive improvement in hardware that has driven the AI development. Remember many of these techniques like neural nets are decades old but were unusable. There is also the abundance of data in many different domains that has enabled this. Hence the big data hype in the last few years.
Medical AI is huge but doesn't get much attention because its not generating fun examples. But like 50% of the people I know doing AI are in biomedical.

We don't need big evil AGI to collapse society, economy and drive us near extinction, because those won't be goals, just side effects of ai tools and systems
Its a recession and startups are dropping like flies. Every programmer is showing their cards to avoid being on the chopping block of VR funding. No clue why the open source versions are being released, maybe its just so they aren’t left in the dust popularity wise (network effect)

Why do you niggers use a third party app to hit up booru sites instead of your computer's or phone's browser? There's literally almost no good advantages from booru apps on pc or mobile. Browser is always the best and the most flexible since there's a shitton of scripts for your anime picture sites anyway.

I don't classify myself as an incel, just because someone is a virgin at an older age doesn't automatically make them an incel. Incelism is a state of mind and ideology, also you're stereotyping.
I can't say how many people would find $800 to be "a lot of money" but it would probably be more than you realize, especially on a watch of all things, something that a lot of people didn't even really wear before Apple released the Apple Watch.
>TFW 5'4 manlet
>Tiny wrist

I wish I lacked self awareness, because when/if I get the Ultra, it'll look comically huge on my wrist since my wrist is small.
Same I'm 5'5" and have a 6.5" wrist. I have the 45mm apple watch 7 and it's fine I guess
I also wear the Series 7 right now, but I think mine is the 41 mm, not sure though. I wanted the 45 mm when I bought it but didn't specify so I assumed it was the 45 mm. I gotta go look at the box to see, I still have it around here somewhere.

I know this may sound like a stupid thread, but say you're running your own R&D department. What new computing technology would you invest in and why?????

Reading this >>88811142 superconductor digital technology seems to answer a lot of the problems associated with moores law ending without needing for a quantum solution. Makes me feel much more skeptical of quantum computing.

So is superconductivity the missing step between quantum and current semiconductor technology? Or am I brainlet?
>That would be a really good use of 2 billion.
Yeah, that's the problem. Semiconductor design and fabrication is crazy expensive and the companies in this industry are increasingly risk averse. 2 billions is probably not enough.
Another investment could be research in other form of integrated circuits, that could be cheaper and faster to manufacture. For example, there was research about carbon nanotubes transistors. I didn't keep up with it so I have no idea how viable it is but something like that would be... very subversive to the micro-electronics industry.
This is a video on optical transistor

>carbon nanotube transistors

I haven't heard of this one yet either. It seems like the paper i first linked is correct that we're still so early on it's hard to tell really what will replace it for sure.
>optical transistor
Something like that, though this still seem to require photolithography on a silicon substrate, which is what is expensive in the fabrication of ICs.
Intel made optane, but they couldn't get the manufacturing cost down enough to make it profitable.

>install pihole
>doesn't block youtube ads
it's honestly surprising how shitty web is that you load tons of alternate domains when you visit a website.
I assume ads and shit will eventually be packed into same domains when the web devs catch up with how to do basic coding of 20-30 years ago... and in that case pi hole won't do anything
Pihole is just another layer of defense, it's not complete without uBO. uBOblocks adblock detectory, and annoyances such as black lives matter, or wikipedia begging also.

> I assume ads and shit will eventually be packed into same domains
Ad networks came into being when it became obvious that Google knew more about consumers than the consumers themselves. The more precisely you can target ads, the more valuable your ad space is, and you have multiple advertisers lining up for all your ad units.

If you get the middleman out, you have to contract advertisers themselves (ie. Mickey D's if you want to run burger ads on your site), and tell them personally why is it good to advertise on your site. You then run their campaigns, and deliver metrics they have to verify somehow. In the age of major sites, no one will talk to you below 10 million individual MAU. It takes years reaching that size if ever, and that size means pretty serious iron and bandwidth requirements (meaning decent sized paid vps),

The ad network does it for you. (Contracts advertisers, targets individual users, fills your ad slots, then reports back to the advertisers.)

This means unless something significantly changes in net monetisation, ads will continue to be served from third party domains.
