  • How artificial intelligence learns how to be racist
  • Simple: It’s mimicking us. Open up the photos app on your phone and search “dog.” And all the pictures you have of dogs will come up. This was no easy feat. Your phone knows what a dog “looks” like. This and other modern-day marvels are the result of machine learning. These are programs that comb through millions of pieces of data and start making correlations and predictions about the [続きを読む]
  • A Kentucky coal museum is installing solar panels on its roof
  • Even a coal museum has a better understanding of energy’s future than Trump. The unifying theme of the Trump era is that all subtext must become text. Nothing can remain implied, it’s all got to be out in the open, obvious and crude.Take Donald Trump’s promises to the US coal industry. His effort to prop up coal is well-documented, as is its futility. But just for punctuation, to really t [続きを読む]

    of ISIS?” he [続きを読む]
