November 14th, 2019, 2:19 pm

Mc Ghee is outrunned, NNs compute today 100 millions times faster than ODE methods !!!

It's like learning to play the violin. Ten thousand hours of practice, but then you can rattle through all four seasons in minutes.

But 'ukulele is still better.

Step over the gap, not into it. Watch the space between platform and train.

Lies, damned lies and neural networks. No way, Jose.

As Wittgenstein would say, it is a description and not an explanation. Not a single formula. Reads like a piece of marketing.

That analogy may be better than you think. When your ten thousand hours does not help me -- and I still have to practice/train the damn thing -- maybe that's a good criterion for a 'useless' machine learning application. 

On the other hand, when the app can be trained by a third party and then I can use it  --  I am thinking Waymo self-driving cars -- that's a different story!

12 days training adds to the destruction of the planet.

Cheeky!  I always think my analogies are spot on!

Did you check for isomorphism?

Speaking of Waymo, which I was, they are right now doing an AMA over at reddit: link

oops -- it's over already and my question did not get answered!

And, correct me if I'm wrong, they didn't test different values of hyperparameters (the whole tuning was only for two different pairs of "tuning" parameters). That's revolting! I considered this tuning in my paper, appendix A.5, very scanty: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1802.09427.pdf Doing this properly would take them much longer.

Has A.5 to do with cross-validation, 5-fold and confusion matrix use cases?

In December 2015, Google announced that the D-Wave 2X outperforms both simulated annealing and Quantum Monte Carlo by up to a factor of 100,000,000 on a set of hard optimization problems.[30]
