What Viktor Frankl’s logotherapy can offer in the Anthropocene

Frankl writes that he ‘grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love.’ It is easy to be cynical about such a claim, proving Frankl’s point. In our small, petty, limited, cruel era, it seems hard to come across much collective human affection, and yet our pettiness, limitations and cruelty are in their own way a response to the looming apocalypse.

AI

  • [New] Graph Neural Networks: Graphs were almost everywhere at this NeurIPS conference. Graphs are very powerful non-Euclidean data structures that can represent complex relationships and interdependency between objects. Hence data in a large number of applications (such as social networks, physical science, chemistry, e-commerce, knowledge bases, recommendation systems, and combinatorial problems) can be represented as graphs. The irregular structure of graphs (variable size and unordered neighbor sets for the nodes) makes it challenging to perform operations such as convolution on them. So there has been an increasing interest in Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) algorithms in order to generalize deep learning approaches such as CNNs, RNNs, and autoencoders for graph data. GNNs can be categorized into four groups: recurrent graph neural networks, convolutional graph neural networks (CGNNs), graph autoencoders, and spatial-temporal graph neural networks, with the heavier weight on CGNNs so far.

To get to know more about GNNs, take a look at the post or the following survey papers:

.
A good list of GNN papers is also collected in . Graphs not only can be used as a data structure, but also can represent outputs of NNs, e.g. any joint distribution can be represented as a factor graph as noted by Yoshua Bengio in his invited talk.

What Comprises an Ethereum Fullnode Implementation?

Comparison between full node and archive node

But, as Ethereum continues to mature, and is embedded in more devices, its flexibility will begin to shine and continue to improve (with a fresh blank state with the incoming transition to ETH 2.0, making things even more efficient storage-wise).

We see a future of many clients, all acting as independent economic agents, with different data availability requirements. But, regardless, a fullnode on Ethereum is in fact that, a fullnode. And, how one syncs theirs should not be misconstrued with other chains like Bitcoin, as long as you’re using the right type of node for the job.

Here’s each of the various types of clients you can configure on Ethereum:

  • Light Clients: Requires no validation, requests the current state from the P2P network to verify current state (fine for processing payments and simple contract calls), but your validation is out-sourced to other fullnodes with the necessary information.
  • Fast Node (Fast Sync/Warp Sync): Will not validate intermediate states during the initial sync, will validate everything else after that, however. This allows older data to be pruned that likely has nothing to do with your transactions
  • Full Node: As described above, validates everything, and will prune old intermediate states from memory, and will keep an archive of future state trie updates.
  • Archive Node (Historical Node): Validates and stores all intermediate states, nothing is pruned, all state transitions for accounts are retrievable. Future state trie updates and full intermediate states are stored.

Ethereum Hackathon Survival Guide

You get redirected to the Consensys Dev .

Seems that there is a real need to set up some sort of Hackathon preparation checklist?

Stumbled onto Kauri, it’s really a couple of people writing articles that… quote the paper? Most interesting

Data

I believe a Data Analyst plays the most crucial role in any Decision Cycle chain. Two reasons. “One, they are the key lever towards ensuring data is procured, transformed and stored in a way that it is structured and ready to be used. Two, most of the organizations have huge volumes of data that require time and skill to be processed into a useful form”.

Bottom line is there are different types of analysts that serve different aspects of the business

Now the fund manager analogy isn’t really a useful one if you’re just assigning people random chances of survivability. It simply shows that when you randomly generate things, some live and some die.

Development

The programming language for writing single page applications.

Mint has all the tools you need to write error free, easily readable and maintainable applications in record time.

Absolutely brilliant! These ideas are interesting in the sense that they don’t seem to be done completely yet but are reachable (buildable)
