A neural network designs Halloween costumes 30/10/2018

Okay, it is from last year, but this is still the absolute BEST source of last-minute suggestions for your Halloween costume.

http://aiweirdness.com/post/166814009412/a-neural-network-designs-halloween-costumes

A neural network designs Halloween costumes It’s hard to come up with ideas for Halloween costumes, especially when it seems like all the good ones are taken. And don’t you hate showing up at a party only to discover that there’s *another* pajama cardinalfish? I train neural networks, a type of machine learning algorithm, to write humor...

Congratulations Kara!

Huge congratulations to Kara Kennedy, who completely aced her PhD oral examination today. Kara's thesis is the first substantive study of women in Frank Herbert's Dune series, and it gives an in-depth and compelling account of agency and Bene Gesserit sisterhood through the lens of second-wave feminist thought. The examiners found the project to be persuasive and incisive, and had no hesitation in recommending that Kara be awarded her doctorate. Ngā mihi nui, Dr Kennedy!

03/08/2018

There is a new name in the field of Digital Humanities: Te Pokapū Aronui ā-Matihiko | UC Arts Digital Lab. The Lab recently received this name from the team at UC Te Ohu Reo, along with a te reo Māori name for Digital Humanities: Aronui ā-Matihiko.
“‘Aronui’ echoes ‘te kete aronui’ one of the three kete o te mātauranga or baskets of knowledge. Te kete aronui is often used to refer to the humanities or knowledge acquired through careful observation and focus. The term for digital in this context is ‘ā-Matihiko’” says Te Ohu Reo, the group that works on naming and te reo Māori quality for UC.
The Lab is delighted with the offering and looks forward to sharing the name and its cultural context with both local and international audiences. Tihei mauri ora!
