    It's no child's play

    Muse, Published on 13/01/2018

    » This Children's Day, Lego aficionados can witness the beauty of Bangkok via the world's most popular building blocks. Created with over 500,000 Lego bricks, 11 iconic destinations in Bangkok have been recreated in both mosaic and 3D, and from an 8.5m, snap-ready panorama. Both traditional and colonial treasures are on display, be it the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall, Wat Phra Kaew or Yaowarat Road. The model-building team -- all men who have a hobby of Lego building -- first decided where to position each place, before they worked together to connect the sky mosaic in the background. Then, each person worked to scale down their building, a process which averaged up to two months, with one month to design the final display and another month to build the actual destination. We talked to two of the 11 builders who have long been on the Lego circuit about how creating model destinations is no child's play.

    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.
