Sigh, but what 37 years!
6t21And what a beautiful death - in th name of science. Political and religious authority in France fell as their more enlightened subjects (including Guillotin) strated to discover that we are all - from a sea polyp to a cat jumping on my keyboard, to a man - made of dust.

interestingly enough, experts in ML continue in 2021 to ask other humans to identify objects..

If you suggest that I'm an expert in ML, that's very nice of you, but I'm just a humble statistician and mathematical modeller - and fiercely against NN, especially DN (a.k.a. Normal Nonsense and Deep Nonsense) :-)
Seriously, I'm obsessed with wicked systems and I have a lot of it at work at the moment - people's interaction with my models. Trust or distrust, learning and cooperating, or getting adversarial or subconsciously adversatial - i think I will go on studying psychology to write a book about it or even start a new field!

I have nothing against Chinese people and my good friends… #handsofTaiwan! … but I really need to pee and they are taking selfies in the queue to the loo :-!?!


PS, thank goodness there was another loo outside :-]

You reminded me how many times I entered spaces and did things in Norway because I didn't know the language...
But now I read Norwegian! This is the loo sign:
