The Latest Adventure of John McAfee? Arrested Again!

Oh John, you’re entertaining but as sane as a lorry load of peanuts. John has been arrested again and this time the charge is for DUI and possession of a handgun while under the influence, this was after legging it from police in Belize; it takes some talent to be drunk, high and armed at the same time.

I am not quite sure police are taking him seriously after an individual by the name of Sheila Austin, who is the warrants clerk for the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that he was that McAfee before stating “I don’t know why he would move to a little town like ours,” According to authorities, McAfee resides in a place by the name of Lexington Tenn, yep me neither, so I researched this and it turns out Tenn is short for Tennessee and is located within the western part of the state between Nashville and Memphis, which is based ideally for the music scene.

John McAfee was released on a bond of $5,000 (£3228) approx, but not before a mug shot was taken, which is below, in the great words of noted wordsmith Afroman, because I got high, because I got high, la, la, la, la.

On a serious note, it just goes to show how John McAfee has fallen after losing most of his $100 million dollar fortune which is owed to the stockmarket crash of 2008. He had been living in Belize until police paid him a visit to ask why his neighbour was dead, at which point he fled to Montreal Canada where he lived with his wife before eventually moving to Tennessee. John McAfee stated in an interview that his assists were frozen by law enforcement in Belize with the outcome being close being broke.

It’s difficult to pinpoint what this eccentric entrepreneur will do next. He is the type of person to be involved with a tank, or a rocket or possibly blowing something up, good job hes not allowed anywhere near nuclear missiles.

Machine Vision Algorithm May Be the next Art Critic

Art historians still find defining art and its creative qualities tricky even today. Art has always been considered something that a human mind can understand and appreciate, but is it really?

A simplified definition of what makes one of the best pieces of art stand out is that they need to have a key element which inspired later artists to use in their own work.

Two researchers at the Rutgers University tend to disagree that humans are the only ones who can judge art. Based on a machine vision algorithm, they proved that paintings can be studied and judged by computers too.

The researchers put it to a test and fed the code a database of about 62,000 pictures of fine art paintings. The results achieved consisted in the computer recognising Monet’s Haystacks at Chailly at sunrise as being one of the most influential paintings in history.

Art critics would agree with the above and state that Rodin’s 1889 sculpture Danaid is not as influential as the machine deems too. But does this really mean a computer can judge fine art now?

The truth is that arguments between critics on determining the most influential pieces of art have been going on for ages now, but this algorithm could prove to be a basis on which they can agree upon.

The algorithm uses visual concepts that analyses both low-key elements, such as colour, texture and simple objects, as well as high-key elements like walking, smiling and so on. A computer then applies the algorithm to a database pool and comes up with the paintings which influenced other authors.

Also, the researchers tell us that the algorithm has bigger potential than just showing a list of paintings. They say that the algorithm can be used in other areas, such as literature, sculpture and even in science.
