My research interests include machine learning (particularly neural networks) and natural language processing.

comment Does killing humans impact Humanity if it's in pre-emptive self-defense?
Vampires don't have stat call morality in 2e. I know integrity works significantly differently from morality. I can't really recall how humanity has change (other than touch-stones). Are you certain this applies still in 2e? and if so, edit out references to Mortality.

this is my experience also, Each lens (Full round of the table) takes a bit under an hour assuming only one longish played scene per lens

comment How to expose information without making a villain monologue
It doesn't have to be a written monologue @MrJin, it can be other thing that hint at it. For example a hiring contract/payment recepts for the other shadow runners. A analysis of past responses to appempted theft of data, with comments like "b̶o̶m̶b̶i̶n̶g̶: can't got too big or it might be called off."

comment Does a line of salt prevent a baned entity from crossing?
ghosts in nWoD can't fly, not can most types of spirits. They hug the ground, unless there is different ground in the twilight

comment How does Demon: the Descent handle the common problems with Splinters and Time Travel?
Demons (in Demon the Descent) are immune to banishment (just so no-one is confused). It is also very hard (though not impossible) to get into a timeline that is linked to yours -- as described in my answer, in DtD you normally travel to parallel timeshifted worlds. (Or are timetravelling <15 minutes into the past)
