Google’s AI Dreams While the Media Debates Obama Saying Nigger

I don’t know if you’re aware, but Google’s artificial neural network – the same one that does some pretty impressive image recognition – can dream. Sort of. The AI can see and create images based on a blank canvas of white noise and the results are nothing short of amazing. You should totally check out the full article on IFLScience.

Meanwhile, American media is losing its collective s**t because Obama actually said the word nigger instead of treating it like it may bring the wrath of Voldemort.

Boy oh boy, where do I even start? Look, I personally don’t use the word nigger in a loosey goosey way, but it’s still JUST a word nonetheless. Granted, it is also much more than a word at the same time. It has an ugly history, one that people of many shades have tried to justify as often as it’s decried.

Still, it’s JUST a word.

I don’t know, man. Am I a crazy person here? If we’re going to be adults, we need to at least talk about this word and its significance without essentially covering our mouths while crowing, “Oooooh, look what he said!” I’m well aware not everyone is falling for this nonsense, but the fact that some people are so focused on Barry Obama dropping the N-bomb makes me realize the importance of what’s going on in American culture is being lost. At least to major media outlets.

Whatever. I don’t care about this word. I acknowledge its existence and the fact that it’s associated with the historic dehumanization of people. I still don’t care. Certainly not enough to get upset about someone else using it while discussing its significance.

So to anyone who’s being uppity about this, just chill the eff out. I know, I know; I can’t tell you to chill the eff out. Well, too bad because I just did. Why? BECAUSE GOOGLE’S AI CAN DREAM AND IMAGINE. While we can’t get out s*** together, somewhere out there a server is creating weird ass pictures of dog-faced knights with a koala for a hand.

weird

Now isn’t that amazing?

Peace out, party people.
