旅途中

猫的歌声,自丛林的另一端传来,那样渺远不真。 我捡起地上的草鞋和破烂的风吕。终究是要上路的。 旅途中世界塌陷的原因远比传奇更世俗。找不到水源,夜晚寄宿的山洞里奇怪的响声。旅人的第一要务是保证生存,除此之外才能谈壮丽雄奇,谈神怪志异,谈浮萍一遇。而大多数时候,途中就只是充满琐碎的日常。 我和其他所有旅人一样狼狈,胡子拉碴,衣衫褴褛,大概还有自己觉察不出的异味。能遇到愿意收留我的人真是难得,可还是尽量避免找民宿借住,因为怕有些人过分热情执意挽留我在村庄里。在他们眼里我大概就是无可救药的顽固怪人。 旅途中难过的时刻: 发现自己想着回去可以见到的人都已经老了。 为了生存下来做各种苟且的事。 不知道最终的目的地是不是已被战争夷平。 但也有不少值得纪念的时刻: 途中碰到旅伴可以互相交换见闻。“嗨,那天真是见鬼了。”一时兴起,生起一堆篝火,对方从带着污渍的扁瓶中倒出酒来。“那天从住户家里讨来的,请不要嫌弃。”叙述中夹着粗口、唐突的笑声和偶尔的叹息。那样浓墨重彩。 晚夏的萤火虫。那天恰是鬼节,萤火与鬼火像竟美一样从草地里摇曳而起。那一瞬间觉得今晚就算命终于此,人生也已经完整。 Advertisements

All of us sign up to this deal on the day we are born, and it regulates our lives until the day we die….At first sight, modernity looks like an extremely complicated deal, hence few try to understand what they have signed up … More My Inner Conflicts

Quote: Why We Need to Work on Technology Debiasing

“One perspective on bias in word embeddings is that it merely reflects bias in society, and therefore one should attempt to debias society rather than word embeddings. However, by reducing the bias in today’s computer systems (or at least not amplifying the bias), which is increasingly reliant on word embeddings, in a small way debiased … More Quote: Why We Need to Work on Technology Debiasing
