IBM researchers are making the next generation of computing smarter, and more energy efficient. They’ve created artificial neurons that control signals in processors the same way biological neurons control signals in a brain. These neurons can gather, store and learn from information by themselves in real-time streams of event-based data.
This means they can do things like analyze volumes of weather data for faster forecasts or discover new trends in social data on their own. This is good news for people because when our computers can learn faster, we can learn more.
Nowadays, everyone’s juggling an offline and online persona. But only one hero is a literal marriage of technology and man. Half human, half machine, Victor Stone is Cyborg, a digital and physical tank—and a true superhero for the modern age.
The last thing she is ever seen wearing. She and the dress are so beyond beautiful. She looks like an angel almost. The dress looks like she’s wearing a waterfall, and all those sequins catch the light in such a sparkling way. The flowers in her hair are beautiful too, looking almost like stars. The flowers and resemblance of water seem to represent the natural world, and is a stark contrast to what Anakin has become. Vader’s costume is dark, cold, and terrifying. He is a man-made machine, nearly devoid of life, where as Padme seems to represent things that grow and give life, despite the fact that she is the one that has died.
The designer, Trisha Biggar, said the costume was meant to resemble the lakes of Naboo and symbolize her spiritual return to the lake. Natalie Portman once said the dress reminded her of Ophelia in that Padme looks like she’s drowning. I think these interesting ways to interpret the dress. And I’m so glad they decided to include the jappor snippet, calling back to her love for who Anakin once was.
to be honest i thought the finale was a bit underwhelming and not nearly as gripping as some of the past season finales have been BUT man oh man it was also honestly the most unintentionally hilarious episode i’ve ever seen on this show
robbie coming back, chain whipping a couple robots and then casually greeting daisy like what up fam what’d i miss
may and coulson discussing how badly he fucked up while they’re in the busted remains of the bunker trying to stop aida from destroying the world
daisy and robbie having a cute little moment while mack and yo yo are unconscious 2 feet away from them
fitz trying to talk aida down from her murder spree by telling her to listen to SAD MUSIC instead, like dude we know you mean well but adele is the last thing aida needs right now
lmd jemma pointing out for like the 25th time that the A in aida stands for artificial because even robot jemma has a near-pathological need to be right and a burning hatred for the bitch who almost stole her man
jemma with the MACHINE GUN and giving off hardcore ripley vibes
the mental image of coulson making a deal with the ghost rider, i mean how did that even happen like um excuse me mr rider i need to borrow you from robbie into my body for like 45 minutes while i murder the evil robot turned evil human that one of my agents created please thank you he can have you back after
ghost!coulson and aida falling through 3 portals and almost getting hit by a subway car
radcliffe waiting for the end of the world on a beach with a drink and disappearing in the middle of his own big goodbye speech, like wow writers rude did you have to cut him off like that but also MOOD
the collective eye rolls by everyone on the team when they got busted at the diner
agents in SPACE and the mental image of this team getting shoved into a rocket and launched into outer space like i am certain mack and yoyo were 10000% NOT HERE FOR THAT SHIT and put up a big fight and had to be restrained by 15 guys and then they woke up to see asteroids floating by and immediately handed in their resignation letters to coulson effective immediately once they got back down to earth
listen, this show has many problems but it is also truly truly hilarious if you just turn off your brain for 45 minutes
