The current state of my #BigGAN dog evolution. (Reminder: the goal is to find the z vector generates an image most similar to the dog at the start of this thread)

@Breakfastisready do you know what it translates to?

@Limitcycle I never thought it would be possible for a mathematics meme to get so popular...

This is so cool, the #Mercurial absorb feature has finally landed:

https://gregoryszorc.com/blog/2018/11/05/absorbing-commit-changes-in-mercurial-4.8/

What it does: looks at your changes in your working directory and correctly absorbs them into the ancestor commits that touched the same files as your changes.

Great way to edit a stack of commits without having to manually sprinkle your changes across each individual commit!

This isn't #git, but here's a hashtag so that git users may stumble upon this feature.

@axiom you would probably be right. The formula (and thus the program) is given by defining a function Fib(n) that returns \((phi^n) - (-phi)^(-n))/sqrt(5)\ where phi = the Golden ratio, and the returned number is the nth Fib number

@axiom the drawback however is that the formula uses the Golden ratio, which is infinitely long, so after some n the program fails in returning the correct nth Fib number due to the computers finite precision

@axiom it is O(1) as the size of n is independent of the time it takes for the program to return the nth Fibonacci number. If n=1 or n=10,000, it will return the answer in the same amount of time.

@axiom not algorithm, formula.

I love it when elegant mathematical formulas help you solve programming problems seamlessly.

Nth Fib number in constant time? Yes please! #math #programming

Throw these in a parallax scroller and you have some levels for a "planet of the ice giants" jump-and-run. #NeuralGlitch
