Why isn't it sci fi

cause it ain't "science" fiction - sci-fi is meant to imagine consequences of technological and scientific advances and how they impact society

it's often considered "science fantasy" which is a blend of sci fi and fantasy

This is weird, right?  That the word no one is arguing about is the one that's dropped but the one in contention stays?

Get your act together, English, you're embarrassing us.

Yeah was thinking that while I was typing it. Bad words!!

messed up screens and the docks scratching up the screen,

eh. that kind of stuff happens on every new product launch and in the end it turns out it happened to like, a very small vocal minority of buyers. (cf the iphone 6 bendgate or the samsung galaxy notes overheating)

i know it's anecdotal, but neither i nor the 3 other people i know with switches have had any such problems.

that didnt stop gamestop from trying to sell me screen protectors to stop the 'inevitable' scratching, though.

All the positive switch talk has gotten me excited for a bright future, I must say. The switch is basically perfect for my current situation: all of a sudden I have way more disposable income than I've ever had before, and now comes a system that's basically a handheld with the support of a main line console? I'm looking forward to being more of an active participant this generation. It's cool.

Now I just need games that aren't arms or mario (maybe I'll try splatoon 2)

yes! I'm not that interested in politics but I find this stuff fascinating.

uniform and strictly regulated.

could you go more into this? while i think i broadly agree, sometimes differences in knowledge and understanding can also be important. diversity, specialization, etc

GD, if you haven't already seen it, here's some more cool neural network art stuff going on. It's called "deep image analogy" and it's sort of like a two-way version of stuff in this thread.



What's cool is you can now not only make photos look like paintings, but you can make paintings look like photos:



Here's a tons of examples and (even cooler) comparisons with current style transfer methods.
