“The computers racist because it was made mostly by white people…”

Seriously though, did you see that racist hurricane destroying all the trailers in Louisiana?

please. tech companies will basically hire every female and black applicant they can find. and move them up the ladder quickly.

I agree with quotes 3 and 4 (surprisingly), but not with number 5.

One of the problems with deep neural networks is that they have “low explainability”… They work incredibly well until they fuck up and it’s very hard to understand why.
