00:02:00 <oerjan> <quintopia> :( where is a norwegian when you need one <-- clearly now that boily has changed habits, you have inherited his "never be here at the same time as oerjan" curse hth
00:03:28 <boily> I had a curse?
00:03:41 <boily> quintopia: I can be Norwegian for you *wink wink*
00:03:52 <oerjan> well metasepia was never here when wanted to do ~metar before
00:03:57 <boily> oh.

00:04:23 <oerjan> (not that i've got a particular ~metar need at the moment)
00:04:30 <oerjan> *+i
00:05:02 <boily> the needs of the metar outweighs the needs of information.

00:06:17 <boily> hm.
00:06:21 * boily lightly mapoles his bot
00:06:36 <oerjan> i keep thinking KATL should refer to some secret lair inside the volcano.

00:07:05 <boily> oerjan: eh? which volcano?
00:07:14 <oerjan> katla, naturally
00:07:36 <boily> ~duck katla
00:07:36 <metasepia> an active volcano in southern Iceland, with an elevation of 970 m, covered by the southeastern part of the M&ndash;rdalsj&ouml;kull Glacier.
00:08:11 <oerjan> i strongly doubt the original had an ndash in that position
00:08:14 <elliott> M&ndash;rdalsj&ouml;kull
00:08:47 <boily> really, Icelandic is making me kveill.
00:09:04 <oerjan> also the name of the dragon in the brothers lionheart
00:10:04 <boily> `learn M&ndash;rdalsj&ouml;kull is a draconic volcano harbouring the secret KATL base.
00:10:06 <HackEgo> I knew that.
00:10:30 <oerjan> `? M&ndash;rdalsj&ouml;kull

00:12:12 <lambdabot> " !\"#$%&"
00:12:20 <oerjan> well it's a ligature for "et" of sorts, i think

00:17:55 <oerjan> quintopia: don't travel, it's dangerous hth
00:18:12 <boily> oerjan: I'll scour and scry and search and sift through the logs for anything Wisdomian.
00:18:14 <quintopia> I will be in Flam,Getranger(sp?),Aalesund,Bergen,and Olden. If you know of anything that would be super-awesome to see in these places i'll thank you to tell me
00:18:34 <boily> quintopia: going overseas? adventuring in Deep Scandinavia?

00:21:41 <oerjan> quintopia: i hear most foreigners think geiranger is super-awesome all by itself. you could go to the aquarium in bergen.
00:22:03 <oerjan> also bryggen, i suppose
00:22:23 <quintopia> i read something about bryggen. what's there?
00:22:25 * oerjan hasn't been to bergen since he was about 6.
00:22:58 <quintopia> my germanic-language-speaking brain sees "bergen" and just thinks "mountains"
00:23:49 <oerjan> quintopia: it's old architecture, one of the best preserved (perhaps the only? or maybe outside germany) hanseatic buildings
00:24:01 <oerjan> s/one/some/
00:24:08 <quintopia> ah right the wharf?
00:24:11 <oerjan> yeah
00:24:21 <quintopia> yeah i think that's on the list of things to do already
00:24:42 <quintopia> i enjoyed Rostock, so I ranked it pretty high
00:25:00 <oerjan> yeah i guess it's pretty obligatory if you're on an organized tourist trip
00:25:27 <quintopia> it's not that organized. it's a cruise. we get like 8-12 hours to do whatever we want in each place
00:25:31 <oerjan> if you're in geiranger, i have a hunch you might go glacier climbing
00:25:49 <quintopia> glacier climbing...should i do that?
00:26:29 <boily> climb the glacier! show it who's boss!
00:26:42 <oerjan> quintopia: a guided tour, presumably.
00:26:56 <quintopia> i'll look into it
00:27:25 <oerjan> western norway has glaciers close to some of the fjords, anyway.
00:28:21 * oerjan went on such a trip once during a summer school university arrangement, but not at geiranger.
00:28:45 <FireFly> oerjan: oh, that's what the dragon's named after
00:28:54 * oerjan recalls he got a black toe from that trip, it took half a year or so to grow back out properly
00:29:03 <oerjan> toenail, that is
00:29:19 <quintopia> too bad it wasn't a black foot
00:29:27 <quintopia> the norwegian mr. deeds!
00:30:37 <oerjan> quintopia: gangrene is no laughing matter. also, i already regret looking it up on wikipedia.
00:30:44 * boily recalls he accidentally his toenail off one time. apparently Canadian toenails have the same growth rate as Norwegian ones.
00:31:10 <quintopia> i'm sure we've all done it at some point. mine grew back kinda crooked
00:33:47 <boily> I don't know which of my scars is the stupidest. it's either my knee with: a car being washed, a bush and a flowerbed; or my forehead with: a freezer, a furnace airduct and a sewing machine desk.
00:39:47 <Sgeo> Terran Republic = Peacekeepers?
00:40:09 <Sgeo> Certainly seem thematically similar
00:40:18 <oerjan> is this the kind of peace where it's peaceful because no one's alive
00:41:42 <Sgeo> I think the peacekeepers/TR themselves would still be alive
00:42:02 <Sgeo> I guess not quite as peaceful though

01:22:28 <Phantom_Hoover> the consequences are too dire to dwell upon

01:23:06 <boily> ah, the good ol' feeling of insanity that this chännel exudes.
01:23:46 <zzo38> I found a program containing a comment "Let's get fired because I wrote this stupid comment"

01:25:39 <oerjan> i'm sure smalahove is one of the tricks we pull on foreigners.

02:04:26 <oerjan> ais523: don't tempt me to move INTERCAL to between Commercial and Complode in the language list
02:04:53 <ais523> oerjan: if you do, I won't object
02:05:17 <zzo38> I don't object as long as you are also keeping it filed under "INTERCAL" too

06:03:36 <zzo38> kmc: Almost. Instead of "exist", put "fundamental".
06:03:59 <zzo38> Others are therefore derivative rather than fundamental.
06:04:47 <kmc> i see
06:05:05 <kmc> in that case I would have to go with neutral monism, as well
06:05:25 <kmc> i'm pretty sold on monism through direct personal experience
06:06:03 <kmc> and it seems very unlikely that humans already understand the universe well enough that our current concepts of "matter" or "mind" accurately describe the one true fundamental thing
06:06:12 <kmc> though if I had to pick one to be closer I would go with "matter"
06:08:55 <zzo38> While that is a valid reason, it isn't how I would do it. Still, of course I don't know either, but I can make opinions, based on what I know about physics and mathematics and stuff.

06:16:58 <zzo38> Some of my reasons are difficult to describe, but I can describe some of them.
06:18:41 <zzo38> For one thing, I am considering "matter" as the physical universe which includes matter, energy, subatomic particles, their direction of movement, spacetime.
06:19:58 <kmc> (I think the way science goes at present, if we do discover the one true thing, it's more likely to get labeled as "matter" than "mind" but that seems like a cultural naming preference and nothing more)

06:23:40 <zzo38> kmc: I disagree with that kind of naming scheme, but they can do what they want.
06:23:44 <kmc> ok
06:24:03 <zzo38> (Both "matter" and "mind" are the wrong name for it.)
06:24:10 <kmc> do you have a name for it?
06:24:44 <kmc> "The truth is five, but men have only one name for it."
06:24:55 <zzo38> I think the "one true thing" is *really* mathematics, and not the universe. The universe is an instanteation of such thing, and it is possible for mathematical formulas to have multiple solutions, or might have no solutions, and therefore, nondeterminism, and furthermore, things that "work out as part of God's plan" or whatever you call that (I don't know a better way to describe it, hence the quote marks)
06:25:02 <zzo38> kmc: No, I don't
06:25:17 <zzo38> But I can think of kind of how it would work
06:26:10 <kmc> but if the universe is an instantiation of mathematics, why this particular one? why these particular values for fundamental constants that could be different?
06:26:12 <zzo38> Mathematics is the real reality.
06:26:30 <zzo38> kmc: Because it is what is observed.
06:26:32 <kmc> perhaps the most true model of the universe has no arbitrary constants, though
06:26:59 <kmc> or perhaps other people in different universes with different values are wondering the same thing
06:27:02 <zzo38> Yes, that is possible, but, maybe it isn't the case; it leaves to see whether or not anyone can figure out whether or not it is possible.
06:28:34 <zzo38> But, it is also possible that both those things are possible!
06:36:22 <zzo38> I can also say that, for example, you can have a quantum state vector which has to be longer due to entangled with other things, it can include "mind", but not really; rather it is something else which includes a "mind", but "mind" also includes a "matter" and vice-versa too, kind of, similar to the Taijitu, almost.
06:37:40 <kmc> it seems disappointing that the Taijitu is not recursive
06:38:32 <zzo38> I think I have seen a recursive version.

20:45:38 <kmc> http://arxiv.org/abs/1401.7087 I like how this abstract makes "the D-Wave machine" sound like an alien artifact discovered on the far side of the moon
20:46:50 <Slereah__> It sounds like a vibrator
20:49:05 <kmc> a quantum vibrator...
20:53:06 <kmc> used to produce orgasmic superpositions
20:54:17 <int-e> kmc: did you come from blog.cr.yp.to?
20:55:01 <Slereah__> Don't watch porn, you'll collapse their wavefunctions!
20:57:26 <int-e> 'precise terminology', djb is funny. "The latest speed reports for fully homomorphic encryption are—let me use precise technical terminology here, since I'm a big fan of careful benchmarking—ludicrously slow, but without ideal lattices they would be utterly ludicrously slow."
20:57:31 * kmc mis-parses "come from" due to previous topic
20:57:35 <kmc> yes, that's where I got the link
21:01:10 <ais523> did the previous topic involve modern INTERCAL?
21:05:25 <Slereah__> What about quantum INTERCAL
21:05:41 <Slereah__> Is there any quantum esolang by the way?
21:05:44 <ais523> "Quantum INTERCAL" is an awful name, it's basically just multithreading
21:05:57 <ais523> and yeah, there are quite a few, but they all seem to misunderstand quantum computation
21:06:05 <ais523> and wouldn't actually be any faster on a quantum computer
21:06:22 <Slereah__> Well esolangs aren't really made for speed
21:06:28 <int-e> quantum intercal would have to allow superpositions of DOs and DONTs.
21:06:36 <Slereah__> I do have a degree in quantum physics
21:06:43 <Slereah__> I should give it a try someday
21:07:08 <ais523> int-e: DO ABSTAIN FROM (5) WHILE REINSTATING IT
21:07:13 <ais523> at least, I think that's the syntax
21:07:25 <ais523> it might be "WHILE LEAVING IT REINSTATED"
21:08:21 <Slereah__> Maybe I could make like
21:08:27 <Slereah__> some particle automaton machine
21:08:33 <int-e> So I was right. I had not seen Quantum INTERCAL before, just the concurrent one.
21:08:34 <Slereah__> And have a bunch of various states
21:08:55 <Slereah__> Like electrons would be bits and photons would be tits (eheheh)
21:09:29 <int-e> hmpf. "threaded", of course.
21:09:58 <kmc> programmers misunderstanding quantum????? why i never
21:10:13 <Slereah__> and I guess a bunch of detectors too
21:10:22 <Slereah__> With some RGN to simulate le quantum
21:10:45 <kmc> QC is so alluringly close to things that programmers find familiar, but it's actually completely weird and alien
21:10:54 <kmc> which causes a lot of confusion
21:11:44 <Slereah__> What do programmers mistake?
21:12:32 <ais523> the normal assumption is that all the threads are separate and can communicate with the outside world
21:12:46 <ais523> actual quantum computing is more like, you have all these threads, but only one of them, chosen at random, actually does anything
21:13:09 <ais523> but this isn't the same as just running one thread chosen at random because they can interfere with each other, altering the probabilities of which one is chosen
21:13:19 <kmc> yeah
21:13:34 <Slereah__> Well technically it's more like having one thread all along
21:13:36 <kmc> the idea that your computer's state is a 2^n-dimensional complex vector is pretty alien to traditional CS
21:13:45 <Slereah__> And then you project part of it upon measurement
21:15:49 <ais523> one thing I love about quantum computing is that you can never guarantee a useful answer
21:16:00 <Slereah__> Well technically it's also true with actual computing
21:16:01 <ais523> all you can do is increase, as far as possible, the probability that the answer is useful
21:16:05 <Slereah__> Although error rates are very low
21:16:14 <ais523> then you check it on a classical computer to see if it was right or not, if not, try again
21:16:15 <Slereah__> I think like one bit in 10^12
21:22:48 <kmc> but a lot of classical algorithms are like that too
21:23:21 <Slereah__> Also of note
21:23:24 <kmc> it's an open question whether classical computers can do more in polynomial time when algorithms are allowed to be probabilistic
21:23:29 <Slereah__> There are actual articles about time travelling quantum computing
21:29:17 <ais523> kmc: is that P=NP, or some other problem?
21:35:10 <kmc> the class of probabilistic algorithms I had in mind is BPP (there are some others)
21:35:37 -!- cjw-17 has joined.
21:36:35 <kmc> those are poly-time algorithms where you can decrease the error rate by a factor of 2^n by running it n times
21:38:43 <kmc> BPP contains P, but it's not known whether NP contains BPP or the other way or neither
21:38:55 <kmc> (which is super counterintuitive to me and I tend to remember it wrong)
21:42:59 <kmc> so yeah the open question I refer to is P ?= BPP
21:43:09 <Slereah__> Boner poop polynomial?
21:43:19 <kmc> definitely
21:46:18 <kmc> a world where BPP is bigger than NP would be pretty weird
21:52:27 -!- cjw-17 has left.
21:53:13 <ais523> kmc: are there any problems known to be in BPP but not known to be in NP?

23:03:19 <kmc> (NP contains RP, and co-NP contains co-RP)
23:03:53 <kmc> it's thought that BPP doesn't have any complete problems
23:12:52 <kmc> classes like NP have an obvious complete problem, e.g. { (M,X,T) | nondet. tm M accepts X within polynomial time bound T }
23:14:33 <kmc> every nondeterministic TM recognizes /some/ language in NP
23:14:45 <kmc> but it's undecidable whether a nondeterministic TM recognizes a language in BPP
23:18:34 <kmc> you can think of NP as a probabilistic class where false positives aren't allowed, but the probability of a false negative can be any number less than 1 (i.e. all but one path rejects)
23:19:53 <ais523> kmc: that's similar to the oracle machine definition
23:22:48 <kmc> which is?
23:25:29 <FreeFull> Jeez, that was a strong gust of wind
23:26:47 -!- oerjan has joined.
23:27:19 <ais523> kmc: imagine a P-time program that has a TC oracle to consult with, but the oracle might be untrustworthy; a problem's in NP if the P-time machine can solve it all the time with a trustworthy oracle, and with no false positives even with an untrustworthy oracle
23:28:11 -!- Koen1 has joined.
23:28:39 <kmc> interesting
23:31:50 <oerjan> "TC" is unnecessarily precise though, anything between an NP-oracle and an "everything" oracle would work just as well i think...
23:32:06 <ais523> oerjan: yeah, but you can't use an NP-oracle because that would be a recursive definition
23:32:16 <oerjan> right, but e.g. PSPACE
23:32:30 <ais523> yeah, a PSPACE oracle would work just as well
23:32:43 <ais523> btw, the oracle definition makes the difference between NP and co-NP pretty clear to me
23:32:56 -!- tromp_ has joined.
23:35:07 <oerjan> i would assume you've read that PSPACE itself is equivalent to another such setup, where the P-time program can use random dice throws (as long as the oracle cannot know those)
23:36:38 <oerjan> s/know/predict/, i guess
23:37:39 <ais523> oerjan: yeah, those definitions seem less pure to me than the one for NP, though
23:38:18 <kmc> black panther party with np oracle
23:39:08 <oerjan> hm i wonder if there's anything interesting if the oracle _could_ predict the dice throws
23:40:57 <Koen1> hello
23:41:21 <kmc> hi Koen1
23:41:52 <quintopia> ais523: the difference between NP and co-NP used to be clear to me. all the classes in the PSPACE hierarchy were. it was all just swapping universals with existentials, or prepending an extra one of those
23:42:13 <quintopia> but now i've forgotten exactly what the proposition all those quantifiers get prepended to is
23:46:42 <oerjan> i'd think any unquantified boolean expression in variables...
23:47:01 <quintopia> yeah but then what comes before the expression?
23:47:09 <quintopia> i mean, before the quantifiers
23:47:17 <oerjan> ...nothing
23:47:35 <oerjan> checking whether the whole thing is true or false
23:47:42 <quintopia> so NP is just \exists x P(x)
23:47:58 <quintopia> and co-NP is \forall x P(x)?
23:48:05 <oerjan> yes, with x an arbritrary number of variables though
23:48:26 <quintopia> sure, a vector
23:49:18 <oerjan> well those are complete problems for the class
23:50:33 <quintopia> so then P=co-P=P(x)?
23:51:15 <quintopia> it's coming back :P
23:51:50 <oerjan> yeah
23:52:26 <oerjan> or wait
23:52:35 <oerjan> no, not quite, for P itself
23:52:47 <oerjan> you need a circuit then, not just an expression.
23:52:58 <oerjan> at least if you use LOGSPACE-reductions.
23:53:34 <oerjan> if you use P-reductions, you can of course use something weaker, even trivial.
23:54:27 <quintopia> i thought there was some restriction on the expression P? like it has to be DTM-evaluatable in polynomial time or something?
23:54:39 <oerjan> what's DTM
23:54:53 <quintopia> deterministic turing machine
23:55:20 <oerjan> well by expression i mean an _actual_ expression built up with variables and boolean connections like and, or, not
23:55:20 -!- boily has joined.
23:55:31 <oerjan> and that can be evaluated in LOGSPACE iirc
23:55:39 <quintopia> hoily
23:55:48 <oerjan> which is weaker than P
23:57:24 <oerjan> at least i recall thinking about evaluating expressions in LOGSPACE once, it's a little tricky if the expression tree is unbalanced
23:57:24 <quintopia> yeah, it's polynomial time as long as the expression is finite then, which all unquantified expressions in a finite number of variables are...
23:57:30 <oerjan> but still possible
23:58:18 <oerjan> quintopia: well the expression is part of the problem you are solving, which thus by convention has to be expressible as a finite string...
23:58:20 * quintopia hands oerjan a poly-time 3-SAT solver
23:58:28 <oerjan> ooh, shiny!
23:58:40 * oerjan goes to break some RSA
23:59:23 <kmc> it's easy to build a poly-time SAT solver, it just needs to double the amount of energy / matter in use at each time step, so.... watch out
23:59:36 * oerjan reads the fine print: O(x^Ackermann(5,5))
