The Humble <img> Element And Core Web Vitals

Images have also been a key part of the web. They communicate ideas instantly, but they are also a lot heavier than text to load. This means that it’s essential to get loading and displaying them right, if you want to give your users a fantastic first impression.

A Web Server in Bash

This is a bit of a dumb project, there's all sorts of bugs and they're the horrifying kind. Shell scripts have access directly to the computer and so you can do all sorts of strange and harmful things. But this all makes me smile that it all even works.

Limits of Deep Learning

Present-day Deep Learning models are scaling their computational requirements much faster than the growth rate of computing resources. They rely on huge sets of parameters that make them much greater tools compared to older methods. To beat this challenge, we may need to have new perspectives on our architectures, possibly on a fundamental level, to make them smaller scale but still high performance. On the other hand, we may develop new types of hardware that will be able to keep up with the requirements of DL architectures.
