Print Story On the state of Artificial Intelligence Part the second

My views on the state of AI, because I thought that the previous diary missed out a couple of groups that are interesting, and of course missed out my view on AI ;)

Print Story A quick mathy diary

Where-in I discus some Algorithmic Information theory stuff. And other stuff to do with the halting problem.

Also to settle the house argument, a poll on which is the weirdest food to dislike.

Print Story Ask Husi: Affecting sexuality of kids
By whazat (Thu Mar 11, 2004 at 12:00:59 AM EST) (all tags)
If there are biological changes to the brain that affect someones sexulatity as evidence is given here rather than a conscious choice, this means that parents could affect the childs sexuality. What measures would you take to stop your kid being gay/straight?

Print Story The cultural sub-text of hello world
Funny stuff
By whazat (Thu Feb 26, 2004 at 01:59:23 AM EST) (all tags)
This is the first (and probably last) in a series of articles exploring the nightmare world if computer science and cultural studies combined.

It looks at the sub-conscious reasoning behind using "Hello world" as the first program to create in a programming language.

Not mine. But this ad http://www.hulver.com/scoop/story/2003/11/20/6340/2146 seems to be broken.

Poll : Sleep

Print Story Cold Angry Tenseness

Print Story Feature Request : Feature Request Section
By whazat (Sun Jan 18, 2004 at 10:59:03 PM EST) (all tags)
I reckon all Feature Requests and all bug reports should be stored in their own stories so that there is a centralised place for them to be submitted and the arguments for and against them stored.

I figure you should be able to make scoop have a couple of stories (one for bugs another for requests) and keep them in their own place so that they don't scroll off the screen.

Inside for other random witterings

Print Story Complexity Question
By whazat (Sat Jan 17, 2004 at 03:13:10 AM EST) (all tags)
Branching from a previous challenge answer we came accross the problem of calculating the complexity of a certain function.

I have found a formula for that function, now all I need is the complexity class or  mathematical name for the function.

See inside for details, links to nude women*, bo staff stuff and dodgy IT training places.

Your assistance is required. Not being overly familiar with PHP and ASP and the like I have a question. Are there any server side web based scripting langauges you can easily lock down to only allow a sub-set of actions.

See inside for what I am thinking of building.
