When you are having too much fun with 3D glasses

  3D Anaglyphic Stereoscopic glasses (Best 10$ ever spent) Python code for solar system viewing

When you convert color computer monitor into black and white three dimensional monitor

I still remember when I was high school kid, our math teacher (Mr. Volansky) brought into class book with anaglyphic glasses and you could see all the trigonometry  we were taught in three dimensions. On that day, I thought that's the coolest thing I have ever seen. We already have three dimensional movies . For some reason 3D TVs are no longer selling that much, so why not to buy some cheap anaglyphic glasses , write some python code and get lost in wonderland? [Why don't we have passive glasses computer monitors is beyond my understanding. 3D games would be so much blast. And we don't need any heavy VR/AR headset. With passive glasses monitors we would have even colors.] Enjoy the images (Merry Belated Christmas): If you already have the glasses, you might enjoy  Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming as well.

Comparing end result of cross entropy and standard deviation loss

  Standard deviation loss Outputs of Resnet end up closer together Cross entropy loss Outputs of Resnet have bigger differences  between correct samples Also, correct probability of test set  looks log-normal once again Images created with pytorch CIFAR-10 training .

Power Log Normal?

  Power Log Normal Distribution? It's funny, but when you remove relu from Resnet, distributions look more like normal distribution. Once you add it back, it looks more Power Log Normal.

Having fun with losses (from standard deviation to bell's curves)

  Cross entropy still rocks

Nice graphs on reddit once again

Mini test of Garuda Linux

Few days ago I came across a review for linux distro Garuda  and while I did not do full install, I wanted to check it out by running live on USB.  Garuda Linux It has many flavors, and I tested the first one - Garuda KDE Dr460nized. I did like the transparency of the terminals and moving windows was definitely on the trippy side :). It looks quite pretty.

Fun with features
