    My followers are in every thread, down voting me, letting me know they still care.

      So, like, the up votes? Are they people who want you to know they don’t care? Because that seems like a heck of a lot of effort for them to expend…

    [quote<]Can AIs create true art? @ Slashdot[/quote<] No, at least not as AI currently exists. But perhaps a human could use an AI to create art. And maybe, someday, there will be an AI that is truly I. But right now, AI is just a misused term. There's no I there.

      Can humans create true art?

        • blastdoor

        [url<]https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/art[/url<] "The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power." Apparently, by definition, yes.

          The question said “true art”, not just art. If the true didn’t add anything, then why include it? Therefore something other than the base definition of art is at question.

    [quote<](am I still cool for refusing to use Origin, or have we moved on by now?)[/quote<] I sure haven't! If a game's on Origin, then count me as not interested.

      Not that I have time to play much, these days, anyway.

        Thank you for your support, bro.

          You know it, buddy.

      I refuse to use anything that requires an account and Internet connection to install and play a single player game. Log Cabin Test or bust!

    It’s aliens. Insert meme

      I [b<]AM[/b<] saying it was aliens. But it wasn’t aliens.

      They say it’s all a mistake – – the parking brake came off.

      Edit: changed break to brake

    Good news everyone! Ngreedia missed on its quarterly earnings!

    7nm Vega is already destroying Ngreedia!

    The only question left is if Ngeedia or Infail goes bankrupt first as AMD rises to rule the world with justice and more RDF than Apple!

      Actually, it is more like Turing’s launch turnout wasn’t as strong as they projected. Potential buyers are on the fence and waiting until 7nm refresh. The mid-range GPU market (lion’s share of discrete GPU market) is pretty much saturated with 1060 and 480/580 users who are waiting for next-generation SKUs. I’m sure that Volta is doing very well for its intended markets though.

      Good news everyone… Every Ngreedia.

      Trying to boost revenue by charging more for the same thing? Someone should have reminded Jensen that his rectangles are not nearly rounded enough to benefit from the RDF.
