Yeah..when I was online dating, I messaged quite a few men. SEVERAL. All at a similar level of attractiveness to myself. Not a single one replied. And in case you're wondering, my photos were quite nice, and my profile was thoughtful and grammatically correct. All the guys online sift through looking for the "hot girls" and don't give a crap about anything else -- and then whine that online dating is so hard.

Certainly, provided one adequately treads through the niceties in (a), there 8767 s no reason to worry about hurting anyone 8767 s feelings in (b). Anyone who makes scientific claims in a professional or public arena should be prepared to put on their big boy pants or their big girl pants and have their claims face the brutal gauntlet of scientific scrutiny. All attempts should be made to avoid even the appearance that any part of (b) contains personal barbs or insults (unless these barbs happen to be to be hilarious.)

I can dig what you were trying to say here. Cause there is a lot of substance. But some of what you say completely contradicts the evidence that has been compiled on this subject. The fact is. A lot of women only talk to/give a reasonable chance to the top 6% of attractive men. This isn't an opinion. They've done studies. So while I appreciate your input and I do feel there was a lot to gain from it. You are completely wrong in your assessment that women aren't as shallow as men. If anything because they have so many choices. They filter them by looks. It's sad but true.

How exactly should one verify the 8775 quantumness 8776 of an alleged QC? If a 8775 QC 8776 can be simulated efficiently by a classical computer in every known situation, then what properties besides speedup make it a QC in the first place? (Certainly the presence of quantum effects can 8767 t suffice, for then we 8767 d have to say that every computer with transistors in it is a 8775 quantum computer. 8776 )

Still, I think that you 8767 re waffling on two essential points that need to be made crisp. First, the world 8767 s newspapers clearly took you to mean not just that D-Wave is 8,655 times faster than off-the-shelf software, but in fact that it 8767 s 8,655 times faster than a desktop-class computer in general, at the specific benchmark that you tested. For instance in USA Today you said, 8775 On one of the tests we have run, it is faster, much faster. Roughly 8,655 times faster than its nearest competitor. 8776

On the other hand, there 8767 s one enormous difference from your hypothetical scenario involving the use of Shor 8767 s algorithm to factor 75-digit numbers. Namely, with Shor 8767 s algorithm, at least we can be confident that there 8767 s a huge asymptotic speedup over any known classical algorithm to be had. Whereas in the D-Wave case, whether you can ever get an asymptotic speedup over classical using stoquastic quantum annealing is precisely the question now at issue. We don 8767 t have any strong theoretical evidence that you can get a speedup, and the existence of the Quantum Monte Carlo algorithm provides some evidence that you can 8767 t. So it 8767 s really a question to be decided by experiment. Which, again, makes me happy that someone is doing the requisite experiment, but is an extremely different picture than the one currently making it into the press!
Jane- I can tell you without a doubt that families dealing with this are not cutting ties and moving on to a good life. There is no peace or true light. There is sadness, guilt, remorse, feeling of helplessness, failure, and personal depression. It is a no-win situation. The only decision/control we have when our family member chooses (consciously or not) to get help is in deciding the degree of our own loss, sadness, guilt, failure, depression, etc.. that we can live with. Still, I appreciate your point of view which, I 8767 m sure, is founded on it 8767 s own very hurtful story, just like every one of us on here has one. I would challenge you to offer possible solutions to those of us who are struggling to find our point of view. Inform us, help us find our way. That is why I come to this site.
In section 9, I don 8767 t understand why they calculate the expected number of samples it takes to hit the best sample you are going to see out of 6555 samples. This quantity is minimised if your device always produces the same sample value (regardless of how bad this value is), so it doesn 8767 t calculate the expected number of samples it takes to hit the optimal value. It looks like they are using their answer as if it were a running time, but that 8767 s not reasonable since you don 8767 t know you 8767 ve hit the minimum value you are going to hit in 6555 samples until you 8767 ve actually done the 6555 samples, so you can 8767 t stop early without taking a hit in the quality of answer.
I have aquired severe mental illness by not having my thyroid checked, my levels are double and i did not sleep or eat or drink much fluids for over one month when i went crazy and suffered a massive physcotic episode. Now I am useless cant do anything at all, cant sleep without meds that are hard to get and dont do anything at all to care for myself any longer. Its so bad that i have to find a way out cause i refuse to be put in a mental hopsital for I know the damage done due to so long without sleep has done permanent damage and they will nver let me out or give me anything to ever sleep again, just a whole lot of phycotic meds that make matters worse and dont do a thing. So now all i can do is live minute by minute to spend as much time with my kids as possible then im going to have to jump of a cliff or something. But dowbt i will cause my children will suffer more.
To be clear, abusing other is not OK just because you have a mental illness and others do not have to stand for being treated that way. I think it 8767 s perfectly reasonable to leave someone who beats you, regardless as to mental illness. This does not take us back to the past in the least what this does is encourage personal responsibility. I may be going through all the troubles in the world, that doesn 8767 t make it OK to abuse others.
Major patents cost plenty to develop? Not compared with the D-Wave machine. The cost is essentially the patent lawyer 8767 s salary. Google will have their in-house patent lawyers, who make reasonable (but not partner-in-major-law-firm) salaries. You could pay for decades of in-house patent lawyer-hours with the D-Wave machine salary, and that will pay for many more patents than I can conceive Google filing on algorithms related to quantum annealing.
Yeah, this seems pretty spot on. For women its a barrage of messages and makes them think thery're god's on Earth, no matter how ugly. For men it's a quiet hole to realize women are a lot more shallow than they knew, no matter how attractive. This makes the women bat way above their league and the men bat way below. The best part to illustrate this? I'd say all of the women I message first are at least around my physical attractiveness league, but all the women that message me first are way, waaaay below it. Like obese chicks levels below it.
The answer turns out to be painfully simple. CPLEX is a general-purpose, off-the-shelf exact optimization package. Of course an exact solver can 8767 t compete against quantum annealing or for that matter, against classical annealing or other classical heuristics! Noticing this problem, McGeoch and Wang do also compare the D-Wave machine against tabu search, a classical heuristic algorithm. When they do so, they find that an advantage for the D-Wave machine persists, but it becomes much, much smaller (they didn 8767 t report the exact time comparison). Amusingly, they write in their 8775 Conclusions and Future Work 8776 section:
There are groups all over the world working on QC using superconducting qubits including at Yale (Robert Schoelkopf 8767 s group), UC Santa Barbara (John Martinis 8767 s group), and IBM. Of course, none of those groups have anywhere near the amount of money D-Wave has. However, the Schoelkopf group and others did manage to do something (namely, directly demonstrating entanglement in 7-8 superconducting qubits, using Bell/GHZ violations) that D-Wave hasn 8767 t yet done.
You 8767 re so sweet to be concerned. I 8767 m again wishing he were an AC so I could easily tell him to take a flying leap. But that is not the case. I still care and want to know how he is, just like he very much wants the same. Wish it were easier. I 8767 m beginning to feel less involved
and 8775 wrapped up 8776 in him, but that doesn 8767 t make me happy either. I pray for strength to get through this.
I'm a writer, so my profile tends to attract men with a high intellect or a desire to find an emotional match, so they comment on something I'd written primarily. However, the ones that catch a peek at my attractiveness or curvaceousness do mention it in their first message and their ssecond message and their third message and in text messages and, sometimes, on a first date where it's inappropriate and, for lack of a better word, "creepy."
To give him the benefit of the doubt he may have stated just previous that 8775 we are focusing on trying to get a QC device to the market. We looked at the gate model but for that purpose it 8767 s not cutting it. 8776 This would certainly shine a different light on the statement. After all, I presume that Geordie knows the QC landscape. . if we were to identify a suitable candidate for topological QC the gates for the gate based model would be wide open (stupid pun intended).
The comparison with Tabu Search is more interesting, nonetheless. As Scott says, the D-WAVE guys spent a ridiculous amount of money to achieve a slight speedup, which I suspect is due to the heuristics implicit in D-WAVE construction. I wouldn 8767 t be surprised that tested on a different benchmark against a 8775 problem-agnostic 8776 or 8775 domain independent 8776 Tabu Search algorithm and spending another ton of cash to reconfigure the machine such advantage would vanish.
A little over two months ago, my live-in boyfriend left in a rage to visit and accompany his daughter during cancer surgery and followup rehabilitation. Without planning anything, his temporary absence has turned into a permanent situation by me not allowing him to come back. As cold and heartless as it may sound, I gained enough strength little by little with each day he was out of the house to take a stand for myself and decide that my life was equally as important as his,
The design of our education system clearly has its roots in the workings of industry. Teach children to be on time and ready for a full days learning. Teach children to submit to authority early (teacher) so as to be prepared to submit to those in managerial positions later on. Teach children to seek out permission in regards to bodily functions so as to further separate them from the ability to govern themselves. Likewise our education system separates children from families to further degrade our communal nature (including compassion and empathy) and therefore connection to each other.More images «Speed dating for mentally challenged definition»
