YouTube's AI blocks channel after allegedly mistaking discussions about CHESS pieces being 'black' and 'white' for racist slurs
The Future is Retarded
Researchers tested AI software 680,000 comments on YouTube chess channels
Over 80 percent of comments marked as hate speech were incorrectly flagged
Terms like 'black,' 'white,' 'attack' and 'threat' seemed to have set off the filters
One year ago I was in #Zimbabwe researching the use of #bitcoin and its possibilities. @PeterMcCormack did an interview with me about my experiences and the six part podcast series I made.

@timp i found the simple self-contained examples in this post enlightening:
also this "Asyncio tutorial" was helpful to me
and the "A Hitchhikers Guide to Asynchronous Programming" which deals with socket-specific examples:
Teleport Transactions: A CoinSwap implementation for Bitcoin
It seems a bit of a pain point that Raspiblitz updates involve downloading an SD card image which is more than 2GB in size (see: https://github.com/rootzoll/raspiblitz#downloading-the-software). Presumably that's a result of it being a package of a bunch of different software. I wonder if this can be ameliorated (for those of us on slower internet pipes!).
Good summary today from @michaelfolkson : https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-dev/2021-February/018425.html
Bitcoin Optech newsletter #136 is here:
- describes development of a new constant-time algorithm for generating and verifying transaction signatures
- mentions proposal to stop processing unsolicited transactions
- summarizes proposed BIP for setting up multisig wallets
- shares insight from a discussion about managing escrows over LN
- links to new discussion about bidirectional upfront LN fees
- mentions new protocol for mitigating risk of malicious hardware wallets
if you're going to test https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/20685 i recommend to use i2pd (the C++ router) not the Java one, it's much easier to set up
for example, no need to mess around in a web GUI
it also uses less memory
it doesn't seem to use significantly less CPU while routing though—still more than Tor
In yesterday's taproot meeting, when the topic of various people's opinion (*cough* gmax *cough*) on UASF came up, I was sorely tempted to point out the ultimate nuanced take on BIP148 from the most respected expert in the field:
"If you’ve never missed a flight, you’re spending too much time in airports.
An entire philosophy of life: concentrate on the high-order bits. ...The student who’s never late with an assignment, the researcher who stalks an unimportant problem like Captain Ahab: all have succumbed to the tyranny of the low-order bit. They need to realize that... occasional failures are the inevitable byproduct of a successful strategy. If you always win, then you’re probably doing something wrong.

Nice effort from achow: recording expressed LOT preferences in todays' #taproot activation meeting:
