Having your own words processed and restated can help you improve your thinking and your writing. That’s one reason why talking with someone about your ideas can help you clarify your thoughts. ChatGPT is certainly no replacement for a knowledgable friend or colleague, […]
Like the rest of the internet, I’ve been playing with ChatGPT, the new AI chatbot released by OpenAI, and I’ve been fascinated by how much it does well and how it still gets a lot wrong. ChatGPT is a foundation model, that […]
A few weeks ago Meta released Galactica, a language model that generates scientific papers based on a prompt you type in. They put it online and invited people to try it out, but had to remove it after just three days after […]
This spring when I was learning R, I came across a paper by Anders Kristian Munk, Asger Gehrt Olesen and Mathieu Jacomy about using machine learning in anthropology – not to classify big data, as machine learning is often used, but to […]

4 thoughts on “On the ferry”
Looks a bit Final, this ferry journey (it’s not really strange how abstract images have that mythic quality) — don’t pay the ferryman just yet!
Whilst I’m all for playing with info-ubiquity, I think the Proper Camera won’t lose its place. If I wasn’t a scientist, I’d say this image exhibits excessive Splodginess (those pink highlights, the random coloured dots in the waves). On the other hand, if I was an artist I’d say that was quite an improvement over oh-so-perfect CCDs. A pocket Seurat generator in fact.
Oh…..Final, ey? That must be the reason why I felt claustrophobic watching it. Hmm… no, it must be because I just don’t like landscape pictures. On second thought, it must be because I rode a ferry twice every single week day for three years at high school… Jill, your picture reminds me of endless pensive waiting and longing for a harbor.
It was quite a long trip. But I had to take a photo of SOMETHING, cos you know, I wanted to moblog. It’s just that there are so many things not worth moblogging. I hope to do better from France 🙂
Ay ay Captain!
Your picture captured a whole lot of emotion:-)
I want to moblog too, but sigh… it must wait….
