The agenda tonight is that we can start with a general discussion of modernity, then go to different “great thinkers”[BBC]. Then we will recognize the star of technical determinism, McLuhan. At last, we will return to the point that Mitchel and Hansen want to argue in their paper that changes of media are not “determining our situation” as what Kittler and McLuhan trying to preach [paper], instead, “media are our situation.”[paper]

Thomas S. Kuhn wrote that scientific progress involves both minor revisions during normal periods and major revolutions during abnormal periods. Recently, abnormal advances in artificial intelligence are approaching a potentially disruptive stage, as evidenced by the widespread recognition of GPT-4, the most advanced and astonishing language model. Nonetheless, the model elicits both satisfaction and contentious debate for its ramifications, wherein Chromesky’s assertions are both correct and wrong.
LaTeX-OCR is a well-known, open-source, and free OCR recognition tool that is widely used as an alternative to Mathpix. However, due to compatibility issues with cross-platform modules such as pytorch and qt, installing this tool on an arm64 host requires certain operations.
Polars is an alternative to Pandas that I've heard about but never actually used. According to itself, it is a "blazingly fast DataFrames" - can you believe that? In this article, I tested it in my own common environment, and it's really fast.
Generally caused by misconfigured path but for Apple Silicon Devices, this issue is introduced by this differentiated architecture, arm64, with moved lib folder.

A network is a representation of connections among a set of nodes and edges.
The concept of social capital describes the benefits individuals derive from their social relationships and interactions: resources such as emotional support, exposure to diverse ideas, and access to non-redundant information. Social capital is embedded in the structure of social networks and the location of individuals within these structures (Burt, 2005). Because social network sites (SNSs) have the potential to reshape social networks and lower the costs of communicating with (and thus contributing to and extracting benefits from) this social network, SNS use may have social capital implications. This study is among the first to explore the relationship between social capital and specific communication practices on the most popular SNS among US undergraduates, Facebook.
We used logistic regression and random forest to predict user behaviors on a Chinese social network, Weibo.
In this project, I was trying to be a normal user in a headless browser, intended to get translated texts from DeepL’s models.
