Re: UK going to the dogs

Except that they are training future Prime Ministers and masters of industry. What you learn is usually irrelevant. It’s the extra curricular stuff that matters. And how quickly you can make a decision, regardless of whether it turns out to be correct.
UK Prime Ministers are bred, not trained.

Re: If you are bored with Deep Networks

The functions are often very complicated, nothing like y=sin(x), but more like "x = a 256x256 8bit RGB image, y = boolean, is there a cat in this picture?".  That's the part I need to delve into, to see how the parts fit together.

Re: should people be allowed to self-identify?
