    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 29/11/2019

    » Looking at your newsfeed can give you a sense of doom and gloom these days. Venice faces its worst flood in 50 years. Koala becomes "functionally extinct" because of the (at the time of writing) ongoing bushfires in Australia. Another Thai factory was shut down and workers were laid off en masse. If you need a break from bad news like I do, you're in luck. Here are three funny headlines -- unintentionally or not -- to lift up your mood.

    News, Farhad Manjoo, Published on 30/11/2018

    Two hats not good

    News, Alan Dawson, Published on 07/10/2018

    » When Bangkok got too noisy because of all the criticism about cabinet ministers taking advantage by openly playing politics unfairly, the general prime minister escaped to the North on another scrupulously non-political trip to give away money and be photographed with every local personality and housewife within 20 kilometres.

    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).

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.

    Khon Kaen shows regime out of touch

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

    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.
