Well, as if Florida doesn't have enough strange things happening these days, a wandering beach-comber has discovered a softball sized eyeball washed up in the sand. The intrepid individual turned the socketless seer over to the Florida Wildlife Commision on Wednesday, who have been trying to identify what species of swimmer this thing belongs to since. 

          The story found its way into the archives of the National Geographic, who has opened up the mystery to the public. ("Seeing" as how the Squid experts were busy doing more important things...) Guesses range from Squid to Swordfish to Tuna to Aliens. DNA testing will answer many of these questions as results come in. 

          Seriously though... what the hell could be so much more important for a Giant Squid Expert?! That seems to me to be the real mystery/conspiracy here. Silly Squid experts...

This leaves me to believe that Terminator was more than a movie, but perhaps a glimpse into the not so far future! I suppose its a good thing this machine is much more cuddly and has developed an affinity for felines.

That's right, they let the machine loose on the internet to see what happened, and it taught itself how to recognize and search for, CATS!

The Scientists expressed more amusement and bewilderment at this fact than anything else.


According to a New York Times story, the team said the neural computer nearly doubled the accuracy with which it drew the cat face.

“We never told it during the training, ‘This is a cat,’ ” said Dr. Dean, the developer of the software used by this learning computer brain.

“It basically invented the concept of a cat. We probably have other ones that are side views of cats.”

“A loose and frankly awful analogy is that our numerical parameters correspond to synapses,” said Dr. Ng, saying despite having 16,000 processors interconnected, a brain has many many more processing connections.

“It is worth noting that our network is still tiny compared to the human visual cortex, which is a million times larger in terms of the number of neurons and synapses.”

What happens when it stops looking for Cats, and begins learning about guns?
