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.

Tony: I wasn’t that drunk last night.

Rhodey: You were flirting with Barnes last night.

Tony: So? He’s my boyfriend.

Rhodey: You asked him if he was single.

[Tony buries his face in his hands groaning]

Rhodey: And cried when he said he wasn’t

PadMay

Day 21: Favorite RotS Costume

The Funeral Gown

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

like

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

  • Peter: Good. Thanks, dad... Why is everyone staring at me?
  • Natasha: You just called Stark "dad". You said "Thanks, dad."
  • Peter: What? No I didn't. I said "Thanks, man."
  • Tony: Do you see me as a father figure, kid?
  • Peter: No! If anything, I see you as a bother figure, because you're always bothering me!
  • Rhodey: Hey! Show your father some respect!

“Let me pet ya, Henry.”

A joke some friends on discord made about Bendy reaching out to Henry behind the boards because he wanted to pet Henry’s head. xD 

Featuring @shinyzango‘s Henry cause I just love everything about this guy. He’s just… so precious. Protect this old man.
