    Running away from parental responsibility

    Life, Vanniya Sriangura, Published on 15/07/2014

    » Last month, a family from the country found out that they had inadvertently built up a huge bill by purchasing items in a smartphone game and thus owed a fortune to a telecommunications company. The story hit the news and caused a public outcry and from what I know, at least three similar incidents have since become public knowledge.

    Postbag: High performance puzzling

    News, Published on 12/10/2014

    » Please forgive my lack of modesty. I get quite a smug feeling when I complete all three of the Bangkok Post crosswords at the weekend. The English-style cryptic on Saturdays is quite different to the American-style, two of which appear on Sunday. I think the description of "easy" for the smaller of the two Sunday offerings is flippant at best.

    Khon Kaen shows regime out of touch

    News, Atiya Achakulwisut, Published on 25/11/2014

    » Symbols alone won't topple a regime, especially if that regime is a fully armed, militarised one. The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) should know that.

    An ancient practice to suit modern needs

    News, Published on 27/12/2014

    » Five years ago, Chulalongkorn Medical School graduates heard the news that one of their former psychiatric faculty members, Sermsak Lolak, had been recruited to join the prestigious faculty of Stanford University Medical School. They must have assumed that Dr Sermsak would excel in the technical practice of matching pills to mental ills.

    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 12/05/2015

    One fancy feast

    Life, Adam Kohut, Published on 03/12/2015

    » I love food, and I live in Bangkok, and I am young and hip. And my daddy is rich. So I'm going to open a hip restaurant in Bangkok for young people with my rich daddy's money. Now, you must possess passion. Luckily, passion I have in droves! If I were a plant, my friends tell me, I'd be a passion fruit tree. Imagine that! That's how much I love food! I might even venture as far as to call myself a highfalutin gourmandiser.

    That special human 'thing' will always beat AI

    News, Leonid Bershidsky, Published on 19/12/2016

    » This year's news about what artificial intelligence can do in the arts has been both exciting and scary. Neural networks have learned to paint like masters and compose sophisticated music. Those of us in creative endeavours might be as endangered by technological advances as blue-collar workers are often said to be -- though we are protected by certain limitations that technology is never likely to overcome.

    Mind your passwords

    Life, James Hein, Published on 25/01/2017

    » Google, Facebook and Apple are the names of a few companies working on artificial intelligence (AI). I don't mean the kind of AI that simply teaches machines to be useful to humans, though that is also being done everywhere. I mean the self-aware kind. After so long at it I think the bigger organisations are locked in a series of dead end paths. Instead, I predict the first breakthroughs will come from small, even one-man operations thinking outside the cube. As an aside, when it comes to the search giants like Google or Yahoo and social media sites like Facebook, they all have their biases so the results you see may not be all that comprehensive, balanced or accurate.
