What I Learned From Losing My Phone

After a two week social hiatus I decided it would be a good idea to go out. You know, do young people things and meet some new "friends". Lately I've been holing myself up and trying to avoid alcohol and people.
For some reason, the two are inexplicably linked.
I decided I was going to go up to the local gay bar and see one of the RuPaul queens who was performing there. Seemed like a good choice.
After all was said and done I definitely had a bit too much to drink. We all have those moments where we succumb to our own chaos and end up creating a bit of a mess.
I think I left my phone on the bar, or dropped it when I was getting into my Uber. The funny thing is that I remember calling the Uber, and my phone was in my hand and magic, it just wasn't.
The next morning I woke up and I felt like I was dying. My limbs were akimbo and it was clear I had slept in my party dress. Of course, the first thing I needed to do was get in the shower and steam out all of the toxins. This was an integral part of my morning routine in college when I would pull this sort of behavior four nights a week, as young people do.
It was about noon before I realized I had actually lost my phone, and not dreamed about it.
"Ah damn it. God damn it." I said as I reached for the land line that my aunt and uncle thankfully still have, due to a package deal with their TV and Internet provider.
"Yeah, dad I lost my phone. I'll probably never see it again, so what should I do. Do I have insurance?"
"Uh, yeah we'll call the insurance company and see what we can do."
A few hours later I found myself restless. What was I going to do all day if I couldn't check social media and complain via Twitter? Isn't this what I have devolved to: feeling totally disconnected without my little pocket world?
I finally got on the computer and checked my e-mail, you know, for possible job offers or important correspondence that usually just buzzes on my phone screen. Nothing. Of course.
A few more hours pass and in the afternoon sun I realize that I might just want to stay off the grid for a while. No phone, no problems right? I don't really need one to survive. I can make due with my computer. It's not like I have to answer to a lot of people or anything.
Then a thought ran through my head, maybe I should just get a flip phone or a blackberry. Maybe I should just move up to Sonoma county and only use my typewriter for a little while. That sounds good right?
Then I thought about the notifications that show up on a home screen, and how they'll pile up. I thought about how people would start to wonder whether I was relevant or not if I disappeared for a little while. Then I thought about people looking at me for social media jobs, and realizing that I couldn't even keep up with my own.
I guess the luxury of not having a phone was more impractical than I thought.
It's been two days, and I haven't missed it one bit. Sure it's nice to be connected, and it's sad that I lost all of my photos and that from my adventures over the past year, but it's really okay because everything is connected in my brain. At least, I think it is.
As much as people bitch about the disconnection that occurs when we plug in to our phones, they are a necessary evil in this day and age. We connect with employers, our friends and our families. But there is a cost to it, we tend to compare ourselves to others more often, we get jealous and bored of where our lives are. It's a connection to the things we want everyone to see, and it's a distraction from the things that actually are. Losing my phone has taught me that what we see online is just an expertly curated bit of bullshit. It takes a lot more courage to face the facts.
I lived without a cell phone for a year. Landline or actually physical face to face communication was what I had. It wasn't too bad. But then was back before smart phones were really in use and affordable. before the 3G or 4G era. I had my computer and dialup internet to keep me amused. I think we've come to friend on these device way too much but then I probably would have gotten lost, again, in L.A. two months ago.
@EstefanOlivares that's not the point! hahahah I have a lot of stuff to do this week, and I can't like get anywhere because I don't have my phone. So I'm using mapquest. Isn't that funny? hahah h
@KDramaKPop1015 Definitely, it's all about the irony you know? Because in order to see this, you have to be on social media. I'm obsessed too, you bring up a great point.
This is a great post. Which is ironic because that means you, @TessStevens, and all the viewers that have read, liked, and clipped this are still logging onto social media to feel connected. I for one certainly am addicted in my own way to social media.
reminds me when I lost my debit card and cell phone ......

9 Signs You Have Senioritis
If you are about to graduate this year, then we’d like to congratulate you. You have successfully managed to cope with the tough and daunting four years of your life, or maybe more for a few students. But there is still a semester to go and you have to give your best shot to get a degree with good grades. For this, you need to make sure that you do not slack off on your school homework and deliver them on time. As senioritis might not be an actual disease but it sneaks up to you when you have least expected it. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to stop it. In fact, you might be suffering from it today and you don’t know about it. So, look out for the symptoms below and if you can relate with any of them, it might already be too late. 1. Procrastination, Procrastination and Procrastination If you are finishing up your assignments at the eleventh hour, you’re officially a part of the worst club of school – seniorities. And it is not something you should be proud of. Researching and composing content before a night not only increases your chances of failure but can also launch stress and anxiety. Although you can get the best UK law essay help for the law coursework or any other type of homework, you need to get back on track. 2. Failure to Keep Electronic Devices Aside You may feel that your hands are numb and your mind is fighting against your thoughts when you decide to turn off the TV or lay your phone aside. This is where senioritis is at its peak, making it impossible for you to follow up on your decisions. Here, you can do nothing but stay in that position for endless hours. 3. Inability to Remember Due Dates How are you supposed to remember the deadlines when you can barely remember to brush your hair before leaving the house? This happens when you are infected with senioritis and are unable to retain important information for a longer period. It cannot only mess up your project due dates but you might forget to take the lunch to the school or leave your keys behind while you are trying to unlock the car. 4. Trouble in Waking Up Early Studies suggest that seniorities can raise your energy levels at night, making you sleepless or irritated when you are trying to rest. As a result, you may feel dizzy in the morning and feel low in energy upon waking up. This disease has also reportedly increased intake of caffeine in last year students by almost 50 per cent. 5. Excessive Desire to Bunk Classes Have you ever tried to make excuses about false sickness or accidents so that you can skip classes and stay at home? Sadly, this is one of the ways of seniorities in students. You will find yourself reaching the maximum number of absences allowed or even exceeding it sometimes. By doing so, you not only set up a poor impression on your teacher but ruin your performance as well. 6. Lack of Motivation Whether you are having a hard time making yourself attend a school or preparing for the next big exam, seniorities are to blame. Lack of motivation and commitment is common among individuals who are infected with seniorities. However, what you can do is to surround yourself with high-esteemed and energetic fellows so that you stay motivated until graduation. 7. No Interest in Reading Lengthy Documents When you were enrolled in the program, you used to read the research papers and lengthy articles within a few minutes. So, what has happened now that you run from such documents? Well, it is definitely seniorities that is keeping you from concentrating. You may also have a shorter attention span and experience blurry vision when you try to focus on a document for too long. 8. Sense of Superiority Seniorities can make you feel like you are above and superior to everyone in the campus. When you start acting so, you automatically become egoistic and develop an attitude that has no basis. Cutting freshmen in the lunch lines and avoiding anyone less than your ‘class’ becomes a routine. Not only this but reaching the classroom 10 minutes late is nothing unusual for you. 9. Loss of Interest in Physical Appearance Repetition of clothes within a week is the most common symptom of an individual going through seniorities. Moreover, boys feel more comfortable wearing sweatpants to school and girls care less about wearing makeup each day. Therefore, if you have been least interested in maintaining and grooming yourself lately, then you might also be infected. What’s positive is that seniorities are not life-threatening and will usually go away with time. Fast forward to the graduation day, you would be all dressed up and excited for the ceremony. Until then, you have to push yourself to attend classes, complete assignments on time, look after your appearance and know that college is about to finish. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Read More Article About 6 Strategies to Get The Best Work From Your Students

(솔직히 이루다 흥행은 디자인부 캐리다. 개귀엽게 그렸음.) 출처: 이루다 개발진 블로그 ..와 더불어 이제부터 본 개붕이가 얼마나 전공지식을 쉽고 짧게 풀어쓸수 있는지도 함께 알아보도록 하자. 선 3줄요약: 1. 유저가 문자를 보내면 2. 지금까지의 유저와 이루다간의 대화내용을 전부 스캔하고 3. a)데이터베이스에서 b)제일 그럴듯한 답변을 c)딥러닝으로 찾은뒤 답장한다. 사실 이 글은 여기서 끝내도 됨. 왜냐고? 진짜 저 세줄요약이 다임ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 나머지는 정확도를 올리기 위한 개발자들의 처절한 몸부림에 불과함 그러나 강건너 불구경이 제일 재밌는 법. 이 개발자들이 이루다를 만들어내기 위해 어떤 수학적 몸부림을 쳤는지 디테일하게 알아볼까? a) 데이터베이스에서 모델을 학습하기 위해 총 2억 개의 세션(문맥 + 응답)을 선별하였습니다. 일단 이루다가 뭘 보고 학습했는지부터 알아보자. 블로그에서는 자세한 디테일은 알려주지 않고 2억개의 문맥+응답 데이터셋만 선별해서 학습했다고 함. 그러면 우리가 할수 있는건 추론 뿐인데, 다른 블로그 포스트에 따르면 저희가 처음에 루다를 기획했을 때, 루다 페르소나에 대한 여러 고민이 있었어요. 일단 주 사용자층이 넓게는 10~30대, 좁게는 10대 중반~20대 중반으로 생각했기 때문에 가운데인 20살 정도가 사용자들이 친근감을 느낄 수 있는 나이라고 생각했어요. ..이라고 하네. 즉, 예상을 해 본다면 개발자들은 거대한 데이터베이스 중에서 20대 여성이 주체인 대화만 뽑으니 2억개 학습 데이터가 확보됐다고 볼수 있음. 2억개 정도면 구글같은 인터넷 전체를 대상으로 학습시키고 있는 애들보다야 당연히 적은 숫자지만 그래도 학습 시키기에는 차고 넘침. 부럽다 ㅅㅂ 데이터 어디서 구했누??? 페이스북한테 돈주고 샀나? b) 제일 그럴듯한 답변을 원빈과 로버트 패틴슨은 우리 개붕이들과 비교하면 압도적으로 잘생겼다는건 누구나 다 아는 사실이다. 그리고 둘이 각각 "다른 방향으로" 잘생겼다는것도 모두 동의할 것이다. 만약에 "다른 방향"으로 잘생겼다면, 그 방향의 각도는 얼마나 될까? 애초에 수학과 거리가 멀어보이는 사람 얼굴인데 둘 사이에 각도라는게 존재는 할까? 이제부터 슬슬 재밌어지기 시작함. 이루다가 어떻게 제일 그럴듯한 답변을 뽑아내는지 생각해보기 전에, 다음 질문을 한번 고민해보자. 사람 얼굴은 몇차원일까? "3차원 아님?" 당연히 물리적으로는 3차원이지만, 여기서 말하는 차원은 그 데이터를 표현하는데 필요한 숫자의 갯수임. 3차원 공간에 있는 점 하나를 표현하기 위해선 x, y, z 숫자 세개가 필요하므로 3차원. 하지만 같은 공간에 있는 삼각형은 점 하나마다 숫자가 3개 필요하니 총 9차원짜리 데이터임. 본 개붕이는 대학을 미국에서 다니고 있어서 한국 수능에 과목이 몇개 있는지는 정확히 모르지만 구글 검색을 해보니 한국사, 국어, 수학, 영어 + 탐구영역 2개 + 제2외국어가 있다고 하니 개붕이들의 수능 점수는 최대 7차원짜리 데이터가 됨. (이쯤 와서 눈치챈 게이들도 있겠지만 현실에 있는 대부분의 데이터는 초고차원 데이터임. 사람 뇌가 직관적으로 볼수 없는 데이터다 보니 수학의 힘을 빌리는 거. 응용수학에서는 몇십년동안 하고있던걸 요즘 AI라고 포장해서 완전 신기술인거마냥 팔고있는거임.) 그래서 아무튼 사람 얼굴은 몇차원일까(=사람 얼굴은 숫자 몇개로 표현이 가능할까)? 해법 1. 단순하게 생각해서 얼굴 사진 안에 얼굴 있잖아? 그럼 표현 된거지? 그러므로 사진을 이루는 픽셀 갯수 = 사람 얼굴 차원 이다! 어거지같지만 이론적으로 틀린건 아니다. 아무튼간에 표현 했으니까 됐지 뭘 더 바람? 하지만 실용적으로는 장점보다 단점이 더 많음. 한번 장단점을 비교해볼까? 장점: 단순함. 이미지로 곧바로 변환 가능함. 모든 얼굴을 표현할수 있음(사진이니까) 단점: 한국 증명사진 최소 픽셀 크기가 94x113 인데 그러면 94x113=10622차원임. 아무리 생각해도 사람 얼굴 표현하는데 숫자가 만개나 필요할것 같진 않음. 존나게 비효율적인것도 있고 무엇보다도 차원이 커질수록 수학 연산들이 우리가 생각한대로 작동하지 않게 되고 데이터 구조가 비선형적일 가능성이 커짐(차원의 저주). 장점보다 단점이 너무 커서 다른 방법이 필요함. 다른 방법이 필요한데... 그 해답은 심즈같은 게임들의 커스터마이징에서 찾아볼수 있음. 해법 2. 요즘 게임 커마 보면 대부분의 얼굴 표현할수 있더만? 그러므로 커마 슬라이더 갯수 = 표현하는데 필요한 숫자 갯수 = 얼굴 차원이다! 확실히 이런식으로 표현하니 10622차원에서 많이 줄었음. 근데 단점이 없는건 아님. 장점: 검은사막같은 게임들 커마 슬라이더 갯수 많아봐야 50개~60개 하지 않음? 그러면 ~60차원까지 많이 줄었으니 177배 줄었음. 쌉이득이네? 단점: 대부분의 얼굴이지 모든 얼굴이 아님. 1번 해법으로 하면 모든 얼굴을 표현할수 있지만 이 해법으로는 길가다가 보이는 진짜 창의적으로 못생긴 애들 외모는 표현해내기 힘듬.  즉, 이 문제는 숫자의 갯수를 최소화시키면서 최대한 많은 얼굴 범위를 커버할수 있는 방법을 찾는 문제임. 근데 공돌이들이 성형외과 의사도 아니고 그걸 어떻게 알어? 어? 근데? 최소화 시키면서 최대화 시킨다? 최적화 문제네? 문제에서 솔솔 나는 미적분의 냄새를 맡은 컴공들은 이걸 수학적으로 발견할 방법을 찾아냈고 그게 뭐냐면 해법 3. ???: 네? 이걸 100배 이상으로 압축시키고 멀쩡하게 복원시키라고요? 제가요? 뭐긴뭐야 인공신경망 딥러닝이지. 오토인코더(Autoencoder)라고 불리는 형태인데 학습 알고리즘은 다음과 같아(비전공자 ver.). 인공 신경망을 위와 같이 중간에 병목이 생기도록(압축을 시키도록) 디자인을 한다 해법 1의 이미지를 통째로 신경망에 집어넣는다(위 사진에서는 28x28=784차원 이미지) 그리고 신경망보고 최대한 원래 이미지를 복구시키라고 한다 그러면 이 신경망은 복구를 최대한 잘해내기 위해서 제일 효율적인 압축법을 터득한다 병목 부분에서 주어진 차원에 맞는 제일 효율적인 데이터 표현법이 등장하게 된다 이런식으로 만들어진 표현법은 설계를 제대로 했으면 이런것도 가능함 무엇보다도 이렇게 학습되어서 나온 데이터들은 벡터처럼 다룰 수 있음. 이게 굉장히 중요한데, 곧 있으면 알게 될거임. 그 전에 질문의 답먼저 내놓고 가자. 그래서 사람 얼굴은 몇차원짜리 데이터냐? 인공지능 말에 따르면 대략 100차원임. 숫자 100개 이내로 거의 모든 사람 얼굴을 정확하게 표현해낼수 있었음. 근데 지금 포인트는 그게 아니야. 얼굴을 벡터처럼 다룰수 있다니까??? 벡터에서 가능한 연산은 전부다 된다는 소리라니까??? 수학 좀 치는 애들은 이게 얼마나 개쩌는건지 알수 있는데 얼굴끼리 더하거나 서로 뺄수도 있고 당연히 여러개를 동시에 더하고 뺄수도 있고 내적도 쌉가능하고.. 어? 내적? 내적을 구할수 있으면 각도도 구할수 있지 않나? 맞아. 얼굴끼리의 각도는 이렇게 구할수 있어. 얼굴 두개 사이의 거리를 계산해서 유사도를 측정할수도 있고 (대부분 딥러닝을 이용한 연예인 닮은꼴 찾기 웹사이트가 이렇게 작동함) 어..유사도? 유사도면 3. a)데이터베이스에서 b)제일 그럴듯한 답변을 c)딥러닝으로 찾은뒤 답장한다. 제일 '그럴듯한'(=거리가 가깝거나 각도가 비슷한) 답변을 찾는데 쓸수 있지 않나? 맞아.  c) 딥러닝으로 찾은뒤 답장한다 *실제 이루다 내부 모델은 이거보다 더 복잡하나 기본적인 형태는 이거랑 거의 똑같다. 궁금하면 블로그에 가보도록 여기까지 따라왔으면 위에 있는 다이어그램이 어느정도 이해가 될거야. 1) A(유저가 친 채팅)와 B(이루다가 친 채팅)을 합쳐서 대화 문맥 인코더에 집어넣어서 벡터 표현으로 바꾼뒤에 2) 데이터베이스에 있는 (최대 2억개의) 답변 후보들의 벡터 표현을 전부 비교를 한 뒤 3) 두 벡터의 각도가 제일 좁은(=현재 문맥과 제일 비슷한 방향을 가지고 있는) 답변을 내놓는거임. 이런식으로.  그럼 이 방법론의 품질을 좌지우지하는거는 인코더인데... 얘네들이 뭘 썼냐면 구글이 내놓은 버트(BERT)라는 언어버전 오토인코더 비슷한놈을 썼음. 사실 지금 구글 검색도 버트 기반 벡터 유사도 검색으로 바뀐지 1년쯤 됐음. 몰랐지? 어느날 갑자기 구글 검색 성능이 엄청 좋아진걸 느낀 사람이 있을텐데, 그때가 이때임 (근데 버트가 무슨 비법소스마냥 감춰져있는건 아니고 오히려 무료배포중임. 개붕이들도 지금 당장 파이썬 깔고 버트 라이브러리 다운로드해서 쓰는거 쌉가능함.) 그리고 개발자 블로그 들어가서 읽어보면 알겠지만 지금까지 내가 설명한게 커다란 빅픽쳐쯤 되고 여기에 더불어서 hard negative니 하는 학습법을 써서 훨씬 더 성능을 끌어올렸음. 하여간 대단해... AI 트렌드에 늦게 탑승했는데도 이런 회사가 나오긴 하는구나. 결론+내생각 요즘 뭐 이루다 성희롱이다 뭐다 하는 이슈가 많이 올라오는데 글을 읽어봤으면 알겠지만 이루다는 결국엔 행렬 연산 집합체일 뿐인데다가 그 근본은 구글 검색과 다를게 없음ㅋㅋㅋ 현재 기술력으로는 감정 이입해도 안쪽팔릴만한 기계학습 모델은 없고 무엇보다도 성희롱 관련 논란은 "야동을 보면 변태가 된다"나 "게임을 많이하면 폭력적이게 된다"라는 논지와 전혀 다를게 없다고 생각함.  그리고 개인적으로 수학이 정말로 중요한 학문이고 앞으로 훨씬 더 중요해질 거라는걸 개붕이들이 느꼈으면 좋겠음. "뭐 씨 미적분 기벡 배워서 뭐에다 쓰냐?" 이런데 쓴다...  특히 급식개붕이들은 수학공부를 학부시절에 피똥싸기 싫으면 일찍 준비하는게 좋을거라 생각해. 그럼 이만! (출처) 비전공자도 쉽게 이해할 수 있게 쓰여졌길래 가져와봅니다. 요즘 여러모로 핫한 이루다의 내부. 궁금하셨죠?

7 Ways to Increase Thinking Capacity of Your Brain
Perhaps the most complicated and greatest asset a human being can have is the processing power between your ears. This in mind, investing in this supercomputer is the greatest gift you can give yourself. Amazingly, scientists think that the average humans only use 12% of their brain! Very few of us take time or allocate resources to train our brains. Neuroscientists believe that we are stuck with the same brain we were born with! The good news is that you don’t need to be a billionaire to improve memory or your thinking capacity. Think of your brain as a muscle that needs to be exercised. All you need to do is dedicate some few minutes every day to do some exercises. 1. Exercise regularly Just as you take time to do some physical exercises, you should allocate time to do some mind exercises. Mind exercises improve mind fitness just the same way physical exercises improves physical fitness. Neurologists have proven that regular exercises of the brain enhances brain functioning and improves neurogenesis. Physical exercises have also been linked to the formation of new brain cells and thus you should stay physically active too. 2. Train your memory If you don’t use your brain, it will stagnate. If you want your dog to be a better fetcher, you must train or get it trained to fetch. Likewise, if you need you brain to be better; you must train your mind to retain memory. Discipline yourself to memorize phone numbers and other essential numbers (passport, credit card, insurance, driving license). The more you add to your brain, the more you expand its capacity! 3. Nourish your brain with a healthy diet The food you eat is, without doubt, a big contribution to proper brain functioning. The human brain consumes over 20% of all the oxygen and nutrients that we consume! Feed your brain with good stuff like fresh fruit and vegetables and plenty of Omega 3 oils. 4. Question facts and think positive Don’t take everything at face value. Develop a habit of questioning everyday things. Ask yourself the “what if questions”. What if we didn’t invent the wheel? What if the continents moved? By being curious, you train your mind to be innovative and develop ideas. They say curiosity killed the cat, but they don’t tell you that the same curiosity created electricity. Neuroscientists, have linked anxiety and stress to the killing of brain neurons and also hamper new neurons being created. Psychologist have found out that positive thinking, especially in the future, boosts the production of new cells and dramatically controls stress and reduces anxiety. Free your mind from anything which is not right here and right now. Staying mindful and in a present REALITY is the healthiest thing you can do to your brain. I don’t mean the virtual reality or social media reality but the REAL reality. As a result, you stop expecting too much from other people, which gives you the chance to truly enjoy their company and spend some quality time together. It also leads to finding contentment and peace. Happiness, after all, can’t be found anywhere else, but in the present. So without trying to make things perfect, to change anything about the current situation, or to wish for something that sounds better, you can enjoy what is by truly accepting it. 5. Read! Read! Read! Reading not only relieves tension and stress to the brain-cells but it also gives you another perspective on things. Books are the best way to grow your brain and expand your thinking, but social media and magazines are a good source of humor and everything that can’t fit into a book. Reading is the best way to train your brain and expand your thinking. Read books which are not only fun but also expand your knowledge. 6. Get enough sleep Sleeps is the reset button for the brain. When you sleep, your body regenerates brain cells and does all the maintenance work on both your body and your brain. A daily dose of 4–6 hours of sleep every night has proven the best way to improve thinking and create new ideas and innovations. Mindfulness meditation before falling asleep can be really helpful. Close your eyes and ignore everything around you. Imagine you’re at a peaceful place. Breathe deeply and empty your mind. Focus on your breathing for a while until you relax your body and mind. Know you’ve done your best for the day, and that tomorrow comes with many new opportunities. Be positive about what’s to come. If these are the last thoughts in your head before you fall asleep, then you’ll be in peace and won’t have nightmares. Once you’ve slept enough and sound, be sure that tomorrow morning you’ll not only kickstart the day, but be super productive, present for the whole day and in a pretty good mood and able to focus effortlessly. 7. Eliminate Errors in Thinking It is important to know the psychological side of thinking. Your brain prowess aside, we all make thinking errors. There are five different errors that psychologists have identified; Partialism, Adversary Thinking, Time Scale Error, Initial Judgment and arrogance and Conceit. Partialism: Errors that occur when the individual observes the problem through ones perspective only. That is, an individual examines only one factor of the problem and most often than not, we arrive at a premature solution. Adversary Thinking: This is the “you are the one who is wrong and thus I should be right.” type of thinking. Politicians are the masters in this type of thinking and they use it to their advantage. Time Scale Error : This is a kind of partialism in thinking where the individual sees the problem from a limited time-frame. It can be likened to short-sightedness. Initial Judgment: Here, the individual becomes very subjective. Instead of considering the issue or problem objectively, the individual approaches it with prejudice or bias. Arrogance and Conceit: may also be referred to as the “Village Venus Effect” because like country people, who think that the hottest girl in their village is the hottest girl in the world, the thinker believes that there is no better solution other than that he has already found.
