00:06:33 <zzo38> With game such as chess and Go and so on it would be theoretically possible that a sufficiently powerful computer should solve the game and always win, but with some games such case is more unclear, and in the case of Snakes&Ladders, nobody can make any decision to have any kind of advantage (although a calculation may be possible to determine how much advantage the first player has)

01:10:48 <fizzie> Well, everything else than the json data files, sure.
01:11:12 <fizzie> But I wasn't expecing anyone else to want to take the website, so I didn't feel any reason not to try out this nanoc thing.
01:11:46 <Lymia> I need some kind of visualizer. :P
01:11:54 <Lymia> And there's a perfect good one right there.
01:12:42 <fizzie> Well. In theory, you can just take the "prerendered" one from the web, and replace the json files to change the contents.
01:12:54 <fizzie> I don't think there's anything dynamic baked in the generated HTML.
01:13:41 <fizzie> Also that's not "perfectly good", it's very incomplete (if a lot flashier) compared to the old egostats stuff.

05:02:00 <\oren\> I don't know how to evaluate who's winning
05:07:20 <\oren\> zzo38: can you tell who's winning in a go match?
05:07:27 <pikhq> \oren\: That's a Hard Problem.
05:08:30 <\oren\> yah, that's why i asked a human instead of one of our bots
05:08:43 <izabera> one of the commenters at the alphago challenge is a 9 dan professional player and the best he could do is to roughly guesstimate the score
05:11:21 <zzo38> \oren\: I don't know?
05:11:40 <zzo38> You could calculate the score from the current position but if the game is not finished it won't tell you who is winning.
05:12:29 <pikhq> Evaluating the strength of a position in Go is not just hard for computers, it's hard in general.
05:16:39 <\oren\> aww
05:16:58 <\oren\> well, actually, that's good
05:20:15 <\oren\> but somewhat annoying for the spectator
05:21:26 <izabera> how do you tell who's winning in chess?
05:29:06 <\oren\> I think yoyu count how many pieces they have left and which kinds
05:29:46 <zzo38> Yes you can do that in chess at least, which provides some more easily estimate I suppose

06:23:22 <int-e> how does alphago manage time anyway? is it always taking 1:30 minutes (decreasing slowly) per move or is it "taking time to think" sometimes, playing obvious moves more quickly?
06:23:26 <hppavilion[1]> OK, it's safe now
06:24:51 <int-e> anyway, after an exciting fight starting in the top left corner, it looks like alphago stands quite a bit better already. too bad.

09:45:06 <fizzie> int-e: It definitely played some "forced" moves very quickly.
09:45:19 <fizzie> Well, "very" -- not as quickly as a human, but noticeably faster than others.
09:46:02 <fizzie> I'm sure someone's already plotted the timing.
09:47:06 <fizzie> http://i.imgur.com/22zZDSZ.png
09:47:21 <fizzie> (Thanks, r/dataisbeautiful.)
09:47:45 <fizzie> That's for the first match, but it's clearly different from the human.
09:48:04 <fizzie> Except for turn 52.
09:49:49 <fizzie> The intro-to-AI course tournament I keep mentioning every now and then allocated 1 hour of (single-thread) CPU time to each participant, and watching how they manage time was kind of interesting.
09:50:51 <fizzie> For each bot, my result page plots included a graph of turn/cumulative time used, with one line for each game they played, and colored according to win/tie/loss.
09:50:59 <fizzie> The results were nicely distinctive.
09:52:25 <fizzie> http://users.ics.aalto.fi/htkallas/ai2012/img/cpu_ajeeb.png <- there's one example, where the bot clearly has three separate strategies depending on how much time it has left.
09:53:18 <fizzie> Or I guess the first turning point could also depend on how many moves it has made -- the games are so grouped initially, it's hard to tell.
09:55:37 <fizzie> But there's an obvious "start going fast when you have only 100 seconds left" mode, and also a faster-than-midgame opening mode, which might last either for the first 300 seconds or 40 moves. And those changes are so abrupt, it's clearly a programmed-in feature.
09:55:56 <fizzie> (Whereas the general sloping rightwards is probably just a consequence of positions getting simpler.)
09:56:16 <fizzie> http://users.ics.aalto.fi/htkallas/ai2012/details.xhtml has same plots for all the 2012 participants.
09:57:59 <fizzie> (Also I haven't worked for the ICS department for the last three years, but they don't seem to be in a hurry to clean my personal web directory.)
10:00:26 <fizzie> http://users.ics.aalto.fi/htkallas/ai2012/img/cpu_justice.png and this one on the other hand clearly has some sort of a gradually decreasing time-per-turn thing.
10:00:55 <fizzie> (The occasional flat horizontal lines are probably because the game in question has some situations where there's only one legal move.)
10:01:33 <fizzie> Holy monologue, Batman.

18:30:16 <tswett> Apparently CUDA doesn't actually support Debian or something. Ubuntu, but not Debian.
18:30:28 <tswett> I am, of course, running Debian.
18:30:36 <Lymia> wtf
18:30:41 <Lymia> why is there nothing running
18:30:55 <Lymia> urgh
18:31:21 -!- ais523 has joined.
18:31:27 <\oren\> if you have 4 cores, should you not tell it to have 4 threads?
18:31:47 <tswett> So... this is a little tricky to do. CUDA wants packages that don't exist on Debian.
18:31:54 <ais523> hmm, threads, unlike processes, use shared-memory concurrency
18:32:05 <\oren\> or is that just my instinct
18:32:30 <ais523> if a lot of the sharing is actually used, it might be inefficient to run the threads on different processors due to all the synchronization that has to take place between the processors
18:32:51 <ais523> OTOH if the threads are mostly independent then you could run 4 with no problems, and might or might not benefit from more depending on the properties of the scheduler
18:32:52 <Lymia> I did tell it to use 4 threads.
18:32:56 <Lymia> It's not.
18:32:56 <\oren\> i mean, the number of cores is the limit of actual concurrency that you can do, right?
18:33:32 <Lymia> ais523, I have literally 0 dependence between cores.
18:33:51 <\oren\> then why not use an actual fork instead of threads
18:34:16 <ais523> \oren\: you can get more concurrency if the threads are using completely different parts of the computer
18:34:37 <ais523> e.g. if one thread is using the memory bus, it can reasonably act in pseudo-parallel with another thread on the same CPU that's just doing arithmetic
18:35:01 <Lymia> Uh?
18:35:02 <Lymia> Why should I
18:35:37 <Lymia> Why would I rather deal with distributing work between multiple independent processes when it's already hard enough when that's done with shared memory and threads.
18:35:42 <Lymia> What benefit do I derive from that.
18:36:18 <\oren\> maybe the processes will actually run on separeate cpus?
18:37:04 <Lymia> Perhaps you should stop being so presumptuous about what the problem is. :/
18:37:31 <\oren\> well, i thought the problem was that on;ly one cpu core was bing used?
18:37:31 <ais523> I don't know what the problem is, but I think my advice is reasonable so far
18:37:48 <ais523> if the threads are completely independent, then the correct number to use will be comparable to the number of CPUs, possibly a little more
18:38:20 <Lymia> Because your advice is thoroughly off base? How many wrong things did you assume. Let's see.
18:39:09 <Lymia> First of all, Python already uses multiple processes because it has that dumb global interpreter lock.
18:39:41 <Lymia> Second of all, even if I wasn't, the threads would only be spinning off external processes anyway then doing a little parsing on the output. I'm only using its multiprocessing library at all because it splits the workload for me.
18:40:14 <Lymia> Third of all, the problem isn't even that, for some reason, I have 4 threads that decided to run on one core. That doesn't even make much sense on Linux, where threads are much like processes to the scheduler anyway in the first place.
18:40:15 <fizzie> tswett: This must be about something like a more modern version of CUDA? Because there are CUDA packages right there in the Debian repository.
18:40:34 <Lymia> It's that for some reason multiprocessing's work distribution is not running and letting threads in the thread pool sit idle for minutes at a time.
18:40:36 <fizzie> I've got nvidia-cuda-dev 6.5.19-3 installed.
18:40:53 -!- jaboja64 has joined.
18:42:46 <tswett> fizzie: uhhh, you have? Lemme see that.
18:43:04 <Lymia> The ideal solution would really be to wait asynchronously in one thread in the Python code.
18:43:12 <fizzie> https://packages.debian.org/jessie/nvidia-cuda-dev
18:43:17 <fizzie> It's non-free, of course.
18:43:21 <Lymia> But there's no library code for that, and I'd need to write it out on my on.
18:43:22 <Lymia> own*
18:43:30 <fizzie> (And that's 6.0.37-5 because jessie.)
18:44:36 <tswett> fizzie: do you have nvidia-alternative installed?
18:44:50 <fizzie> (Oh, I think "nvidia-cuda-toolkit" is maybe the more topper-level package.)
18:44:58 <fizzie> Yes.
18:45:17 <tswett> What version? I'm trying to install 340.96-1 and it says it can't find it.
18:46:02 <fizzie> I've got 352.79-1, but this is also something like stretch or sid, I forget what exactly.
18:46:39 <fizzie> stretch has a higher-priority pin, so technically that, I guess.
18:49:44 <tswett> Let me see if doing random things with aptitude will fix the problem.
18:49:50 <tswett> Without also creating even worse problems.
18:50:51 <tswett> It seems like aptitude keeps saying "I can't install that thing you asked me to install, but I can uninstall a whole bunch of other stuff instead."
18:53:55 -!- MoALTz has quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds).
18:54:00 <\oren\> Sometimes if you uninstall everything (for a given value of "everything") and reinstall, it fixes the dependency tree
18:54:48 <tswett> Hmm, it looks like it actually did manage to install it.
18:55:58 -!- MoALTz has joined.
18:56:42 <\oren\> aptitude is annoyingly intolerant of badly written packages
18:58:29 <\oren\> ideally, it shouldn't be possible for a package with wrong dependencies to screw up other, correctly made packages, but that doesn't seem to be the case
19:02:39 <\oren\> What shortcut should be "save"?
19:02:47 <\oren\> I'm thinking control-S
19:02:58 <\oren\> but nano uses control-O
19:03:14 <\oren\> ...for some reason
19:04:39 <int-e> F2
19:05:06 <tswett> C-Q and C-S are occasionally used for XON and XOFF, right?
19:05:21 <int-e> yes
19:05:28 <\oren\> int-e: that's a good idea, since it's one keypress
19:07:32 <ais523> \oren\: Ctrl-S is vulnerable to potentially really major terminal misparses
19:07:36 <\oren\> I'm planning on having a "hint bar" like nano
19:08:00 <ais523> so if you want to use it as a keybinding in a terminal-based program, you'd better be really confident in your ability to configure the terminal correctly
19:08:11 <ais523> nano mocks you for pressing Ctrl-S for this reason (in cases where it's parsed correctly)
19:08:19 <\oren\> are the F keys generally safe?
19:09:04 <ais523> F1-F5 are vulnerable to ambiguities
19:09:07 <ais523> the others are safe
19:09:45 <ais523> (this is because F1-F5 aren't sent to the application at all on an actual VT100, so people had to invent codes for them; some of the invented codes are used for other keys that actually did exist on a VT100 but not on a PC keyboard, but in an inconsistent way)
19:10:37 <ais523> the problem here being that the question when things like xterm were originally ported to PC-like keyboard layouts was not "how do I tell the program what keys on a PC keyboard are being pressed", but "how do I allow the user to use this program, which was designed for a VT100, on a PC keyboard"
19:11:18 <ais523> so for example, in practice there are two codes you're likely to see for F1, one is unambiguously F1, the other is ambiguous with Num Lock
19:12:52 <tswett> aptitude's suggestions can seem kinda cheeky sometimes.
19:13:10 <tswett> "Hey aptitude, I want you to install this package, version 6.5." "All right, how about if I don't install it instead?"
19:13:26 <tswett> "No, you need to actually install it." "All right, how about if I install version 6.0 instead?"
19:13:50 <tswett> "No, it needs to be version 6.5." "Oh, why didn't you say so?"
19:15:26 <\oren\> agh

19:46:57 <Lymia> I can't imagine that being good for efficiency
19:49:12 <Lymia> But on the other hand
19:49:19 <Lymia> I really don't want to give a shot at concurrency in c
19:51:21 <tswett> Do they make SATA power extension cables?
19:51:24 <\oren\> I really need to finish my string and array libraries before I can implement this
19:51:47 <ais523> Lymia: I was trying to work out if it'd be possible to run this sort of thing on a GPU
19:51:51 <ais523> but I think the answer is "not efficiently"
19:51:55 <tswett> Looks like they certainly do.
19:52:07 <ais523> I can't see any way to make BF Joust data-parallel across warps
19:52:19 <ais523> which is needed or you're only using about 1/32 of the GPU's power
19:53:25 <tswett> And the answer is no, X does not still work.
19:53:32 <\oren\> tswett: do you have a giant computer case or something?
19:54:19 <tswett> No, but...
19:54:33 <tswett> I want to hook up five SATA devices: four hard drives and one optical drive.
19:54:49 <tswett> My PSU, as far as I can see, has two SATA power cables, one with two connectors and one with three connectors.
19:55:37 <\oren\> oh.
19:55:41 <tswett> But the optical drive is too far away from the hard drives for a single SATA power cable to supply both drives.
19:56:32 <\oren\> uh, would it just be stupid to put ahard disk in one of the optical drive bays?
19:56:47 <\oren\> assuming you have more than one
19:57:10 <tswett> I've got three or four optical drive bays. But those are bigger.
19:57:18 <tswett> Right?
19:57:56 <tswett> And presumably I could get some sort of adapter so I can fit a hard drive in an optical bay, but that sounds harder than just getting an extension cable.

20:08:48 <\oren\> yeah, i think theoretically, it woudl increase the rate at which temperature exchages with the air
20:09:15 <Lymia> ais523, I was thinking about running multiple instructions at onec.
20:09:16 <Lymia> once*
20:09:31 <Lymia> There are many conditions in BF Joust when the two opposing programs are "non-interacting", so to speak.
20:09:45 <tswett> All right, let me try to get X working again.
20:09:46 <Lymia> For example, when they're on different cells entirely, or the cell they're both on is 128
20:09:57 <ais523> Lymia: good point
20:10:15 <tswett> This has definitely happened to me before.
20:10:16 <ais523> actually one thing you could to is check the number of cycles before a program goes past the fifth cell
20:10:20 <Lymia> It'd be a torquelance style compilation with serious optimization involved.
20:10:33 <ais523> and just start at that location
20:11:24 -!- variable has joined.
20:13:27 <\oren\> you could also detect when both programs are doing [+] (with various numbers of +'s) on the same cell, and make a lookup table of the outcomes?
20:14:25 <\oren\> maybe there's too many possibilities....
20:17:06 <Lymia> The approach I was thinking would be splitting every part of the program into two "segments", kinda.
20:17:40 <Lymia> "How many cycles I can run in one/few instructions in a row"
20:17:51 <Lymia> "Execute x cycles, which may be the previous value, or less than such"
20:19:59 <ais523> come to think of it, at any moment both programs are in an inner loop
20:20:10 <ais523> you could probably do some sort of optimization on it
20:20:18 <ais523> via calculating the outcome in advance
20:20:35 <ais523> that would help a lot because [-] loops are very common
20:29:06 <tswett> All right, the nouveau module is not loaded. So I just need to make it so that the other module is loaded? And what module would that be, exactly?
20:32:54 <tswett> Aha, I need to install nvidia-driver.
20:34:29 <tswett> There we go, now it's working.
20:34:52 <tswett> Now let's see if I can train a neural net of size SIXTEEN FUCKING HUNDRED.

22:15:51 <b_jonas> ais523: about that machine that only accesses a limited set of stacks, I think it's actually possible to do symbol table translation too efficiently, only you have to do it on the whole file and all symbols together, rather than incrementally
22:16:05 <shachaf> b_jonas: I guess I don't know of any others
22:16:13 <ais523> b_jonas: yes, it's definitely a different syle of programming
22:16:32 <ais523> fwiw programs written in this style might work more efficiently even on regular CPUs
22:16:37 <b_jonas> ais523: however, you brought up this machine because it would get rid of all aliasing problems, but you don't really need just stacks for that
22:16:50 <ais523> b_jonas: not just aliasing, cacheing too
22:16:57 <ais523> it was originally invented to get rid of cache stalls
22:17:08 <ais523> also to satisfy hppavilion[1]-like thinking of "let's be different for the sake of it"
22:18:40 <b_jonas> ais523: I see. I like the model of a pointer machine (with a fixed finite size of registers) that accesses trees with *immutable* nodes and can create new nodes, decide whether a node is null, and access the children of nodes, and its core is finite state.
22:19:24 <ais523> how is this garbage-collected?
22:19:57 <b_jonas> ais523: presumably anything that's not accessible from the root anymore would be collected.
22:20:09 <ais523> no, I mean hardware-wise
22:21:02 <b_jonas> ais523: I don't know, it's not really a specific hardware thing, just a theoretical model. hardware implementations typically have more complicated rules to be optimized, which are useful for real world programming, such as built-in fixed integer arithmetic.
