How Google’s AlphaGo Beat Lee Sedol, a Go World Champion – The Atlantic

The important thing to take away from this series is not that DeepMind’s AI can learn to conquer Go, but that by extension it can learn to conqueranything easier than Go—which amounts to a lot of things. The ways in which we might apply these revolutionary advances in machine learning—in machines’ ability to mimic human creativity and intuition—are virtually endless.



当 有人问及从去年10月战胜梵麾,到今年3月对阵李世石,半年时间当中, AlphaGo究竟有哪些方面的提升时,席尔瓦简要回答说:“我们在系统的每一个模型上尽可能推进效果极致,尤其在价值网络上获得了很大的提升。训练价值 网络的目标胜率除了通过自我对弈的结果外,我们还使用了搜索策略去尽可能逼近理论的胜率。”

What are some Christian Worldview Essentials?|Christian Worldview|Eight Items Representative of Christianity’s Perspective and Truth

An atheist would probably say that we evolved from lower primates. Of course he would deny that God exists and he would probably say that after we die, we cease to exist. Since there is no absolute God, morals would not be absolute. Instead, they would be based upon personal preference and whatever works in society.

if we are created in God’s image, then we did not evolve from lower primates. This would mean that we have purpose and are not merely the result of random development through evolution that is, supposedly, guided by natural selection. Natural selection works on the theory of survival of the fittest, and this could have a very harmful effect on society if “survival of the fittest” is transferred into a moral principle. It would justify oppressing the weak and helpless.

What’s a Christian Worldview? | Focus on the Family

Whether conscious or subconscious, every person has some type of worldview. A personal worldview is a combination of all you believe to be true, and what you believe becomes the driving force behind every emotion, decision and action. Therefore, it affects your response to every area of life: from philosophy to science, theology and anthropology to economics, law, politics, art and social order — everything.

A recent nationwide survey completed by the Barna Research Group determined that only 4 percent of Americans had a “biblical” worldview.

Nonbiblical worldview ideas don’t just sit in a book somewhere waiting for people to examine them. They bombard us constantly from television, film, music, newspapers, magazines, books and academia.

Because we live in a selfish, fallen world, these ideas seductively appeal to the desires of our flesh, and we often end up incorporating them into our personal worldview. Sadly, we often do this without even knowing it.

Through the media and other influences, the secularized American view of history, law, politics, science, God and man affects our thinking more than we realize.

An effort to raise the minimum wage appears to be a key part of the church’s ministry, referring to it as “the movement.” Text and a video on the website also asked for donations for trips to D.C. to advocate for increasing the minimum wage.

“The movement now is to get the U.S. Congress to raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to $15.00. I have been to Washington, D.C. three (3) times this year pushing for a raise in the minimum wage,” the website said.
