Re: Global Warming - What We Can Do (Mitigation)

In Bolesław Prus "The Doll" a lot of action revolves around a soap show of an old Jew. "Bolesław Prus wrote The Doll with such close attention to the phys...

The next generation of my fluffy friends: P. Camemberti with admixture of P. Commune (for an extra antipatogen shot in long maturing at higher temperature, and to reduce the fat content) and a simple P. Roqueforti heart - because everyone deserves a bit of cheesy love in their life (I plan to make s...

Re: Global Warming - What We Can Do (Mitigation)

He called the people of the far north "Russians", including the Vikings. Rus people! Not Russians! (Russija/Russia is a much younger, Moscovite country). Rus arrived to the south from Scandinavia invited by the local tribes who plunged into wars and needed a independent ruler. Rus were supposedly a...

Could you go back to wikipedia and read the first sentence of the theorem? Well. If you are frightened by a constant function, consider [$]\va...

Re: Universal Approximation theorem

As an activation function in an NN? I don't think so.
