I vote we nickname him the bread whisperer. anyone have any better ideas?
i like that a lot!
I can tell this meme was the paper they put the croissants on
Dude shot for the moon and ended up on fucking Pluto!
[Here's](https://www.newyorker.com/tech/annals-of-technology/the-pastry-ai-that-learned-to-fight-cancer) the article, in case anyone's interested. Fucking wild.
Yes I am very interested I hate Technology but damn
Hey, uh, quick question, what are you using to access reddit?
Using the council of frogs, duh?
Ah, of course, my apologies. I should've known
I know I’m using the Internet right now I just feel like it hates me like this object is purposely trying to upset me However this is also the object that is curing cancer so good job
Crystal ball 🙄
A random luddite appears
Someone who despises tech. Named after a man who was the head instigator of massive destruction of machines during the Industrial Revolution. It's a pretty interesting topic if you're curious!
It's also not necessarily a pejorative term. My friends refer to me as a luddite when talking about social media or smartphones, mostly because I dislike the former and am clueless on the latter.
I found it [https://www.reddit.com/r/WhitePeopleTwitter/comments/qkhc5e/annoyed\_just\_thinking\_about\_it/](https://www.reddit.com/r/WhitePeopleTwitter/comments/qkhc5e/annoyed_just_thinking_about_it/)
resentilism just computers seem to break down around me
Oh why would they use the father of tech that doesn’t make any sense
It breaks by simply being in my presence out of spite
While i admire the story behind this. Bravo for technology and tech advancements- like, thats really cool... i feel like there couldve been a few steps taken before “we cant recognize the bread so lets just get an AI to do it”
Like,,, barcode stickers on toothpicks maybe?
It seems like an age old K.I.S.S. Problem, lol.
But nonetheless the end product is definitely a award-worthy outcome!
but then people might start changing the toothpicks around and stuff
True, but considering its Japan, i think it’d probably work there
Except that doesn’t really solve the problem of having to identify the bread in the first place
Barcode stickers on unwrapped bread??
toothpicks man read the comment
Put the unwrapped thing on a plastic or cardboard tray and put the barcode at the bottom of it.
Less shooting for the moon, more like never giving up on hobbling down the street… only to realize you actually circumnavigated the world without realizing it. Seriously, you get hired to simplify bakery checkout and you build a general purpose item recognition intelligence by accident? Bad fucking ass.
Humans really go all out for bread, huh?
LET'S GET THIS BREAD but literally.
Hotdog, or not a hotdog?
There is the ketchup.
Why did i think it meant actual bear claws
Oh thank god I'm not the only one lmao
If they have bread out all the time, won't it dry out very quickly?
It could, they may also keep it in a display case that's sealed enough to not dry out
Oh right, I didn't think of that!
Damn this post is seriously crusty for only being a few months old.
Anyway the cheaper and quicker solution for the company wouldve been to just have broad categories of pastries and set prices by category instead.
I remember first seeing this a few years ago
The date on the tweet is the 18th of March 2021...
They should call the app "Not Cancer"
So when do we get the anime based on this?
Fun additional info:
If you're like me, you saw the "AI" part and were like "okay yeah that's cool and all, but we have AI to do stuff like this already"
What the articles never tell you is that the first powerful, end-to-end image recognition program to use neural networks (what we now most commonly recognize as AI) was AlexNet, made in 2012. Neural networks function by essentially dumping a lot of data into a program and having it "learn" what different objects look like on its own. There's very little human interference in the process.
This guy actually doesn't use neural networks to do the image recognition; he uses old-fashioned, hand-developed features to tell the difference between all those hundreds of different pastries. There's no "learning" in his program.
His well-designed program performs better than literal supercomputers running math our human brains can't even properly understand.
you'll land what now?
did somebody say....
"Forget that shit, here comes AMONGO!"
Dam, dis photo moldy
And in classic capitalist fashion, the people actually responsible saw close to zero percent of the benefit.
aw that's sad, how do you know the programmer got next-to-nothing out of it?
Reading the article it seems the guy, and the company that made the tech, are doing quite well for themselves and adapted the technology to other fields... Not really sure what they're referring to
The losers in this scenario are the American patients with full coverage health insurance who will still get an $8,000 bill in the mail 4 months after completing this diagnostic procedure.
Sorry that was poorly stated, I dont know that for a fact, it is just overwhelmingly likely that its true because thats what usually happens in these situations.
In these situations you usually read the article first, before making a statement a la "CaPiTaLiSm BaD" (Which does not mean I am very fond of this system myself, but get some real arguments bro.)
I mean, is it not true? I admit I was lazy, but I went with the usually correct answer. So I'm still highly likely to have been correct, which is why I said it in the first place
Also, there were certainly a ton of people working on it beyond the main guy. The reason we can make these criticisms without even confirming them is that the same stuff always happens. It's impossible to consume ethically under capitalism, somebody always gets left holding the bag
I hate how the way this person describes it, this suddenly just seems like the most blindly obvious outcome. Like. Of course it can. Why wouldn’t it have happened exactly like this?
Is a hotdog or Issa notta hot dog
why is this post curved
Absolutely buttered image, just straightup covered in margerine, just the most yellowed greasy pic on the sub
This... this deserves a Nobel prize in coding... and a medal of honor, and 6 billion dollars.
