The van attack terror at the center of Barcelona is a shock to academia, not a small number of meetings are held there this year. The place of the attack is close to Casa Mila, that is one of popular must see sites for people visit Barcelona. That crazy IS and its followers have changed Europe like this. Just five years ago I felt free to travel anywhere inside Europe. When can I enjoy that privilege again there?

It's rainy. It has been rainy since the beginning of this August till today, the mid August. What a strange weather it is! This is a record long of rainy days in August in Tokyo. It's like late September. Tomorrow, maybe it is rainy again. Really wet around there.

I've done some review work just now. All are related to computational intelligence. I'm very much worried about the community's situation; it doesn't compete with people in deep learning. My comments have become somehow serious about their future works. Hope things be going better for them.

I found a double rainbow in the south sky late afternoon yesterday. It's my second time to see such that lovely scene. It's just after a shower on the day a cyclone went through Tokyo.


Today it is crazy on temperature. Hot hot hot ... just hot. Everything under sun is burnt.

It's very much cool today from the early morning, and rains a little bid as showering and watering my yards. Very much pleasant, but it is even in rain. I feel it were like a day of the fall beginning or the end of summer. What's going on this year, really?

On Windows 10 Professional, I run Keras 2.0 with Theano 0.9 as its backend using Python 2.7 and 3.6 both. The GPU on my laptop works well with CUDA Toolkit 7.5 on Visual Studio ver. 12.0. Runtime is somehow better off than using CPU, and I am not satisfied at it yet. I must learn how to allocate memory on the GPU cache.
Weather might have gone back to a second rainy season since two days before; a triple set of cyclones approach for Japan's south side. Temperature goes down dramatically, though humid goes up so high as you cannot imagine it in Tokyo. Flowers in my yards frowned under hot rain drops. Anyway, we are still in the midst of summer. How many days should we suffer from that humid summer for?
