I feel that while the proliferation of GUNs is unquestionable a good idea, there are many unsupervised networks out there that might use this technology in dangerous ways. Do you think Indifferential-Privacy networks are the answer? Also I fear that the extremist binary networks should be banned entirely from this field. Interested in your thoughts; thanks!

This is a cool paper!

I don't even really see the point of a journal. Maybe we could adapt SciRate to have a little collection of longer reviews/editorials/etc associated to each article (like comments).

What do you think a journal would offer over SciRate itself? I.e. if the potential paper reviewers would just instead post their thoughts as these "reviews" here, then you could just watch for new reviews, and bypass any publishing process and so on.

Great institute name ...

Note that it's not possible to submit papers to SciRate directly; this site simply aggregates information from other sites. However, I've added an issue relating to potentially marking withdrawn papers -

You can always make suggestions on the GitHub project pages' [issue list]( I've included this one here:

The system works. Machine learners hate him.

I took the liberty of uploading the IPython notebook as a github [gist](, so it's viewable [here](

I'm pretty sure this first author was just entirely made up ...; but is the error in the name intentional? Weird!

For fun, I created the following IPython notebook replicating the graphs in this paper:

Interestingly, another thematically-similar paper popped up today - (posting the link here as I assume not many people are subbed to cs.DL)

Not yet. Click the "1y" link, for example, to see the highest scited of the year ...

Part of the standard equipment for playing bosonic baseball? It's a good game, but it's hard to know who's playing.

Thanks Anthony and Juan.

There's another blog post on this here:

This paper seems pretty interesting, really. (In how it would relate to the algorithm of Shor). Does anyone know more about this work? Is it possible to improve the restriction on the characteristic size? Is that even an important restriction?
