So I’m here at GHC again.

I heard an amazing keynote from Dr. Fei-Fei Li. She mentioned the Hubel and Wiesel Cat Experiment.

I’d never heard of this experiment before, but was pretty amazed.

Maybe it’s because I took a ML class recently but hearing the neurons fire from the straight line was incredible. It’s totally what the lower level neurons perceive in an artificial multi-layered neural network for image processing!

So exciting!

I visited Harry Potter World and it was magical!

I ran into Erek and his team there, and we all rode the Forbidden Journey ride together.

The ride’s video technology created a realistic flying experience. It was really neat!

butter beer

I tried some butter beer. It tasted like a butterscotch root beer float. I’m not sure how I feel about it.

frog choir

The night ended with awesome songs from the frog choir. All the singers were great!
