Never giving up at the things you were told to do was the essence of work in the industrial age. Giving up quickly on things that are more trouble than they’re worth is what it takes to be successful today.
According to a word cloud of my Facebook timeline, I use the word “zealand” a lot. Or at least often enough to make the cut. Also, according to a word cloud of my Facebook timeline, I do not use the word “new” very often at all. Which is weird, because I can’t think of a time I have ever written the word “zealand” when it wasn’t preceded by “new.”
Tonight I joined the first Southern California PyData meetup. It featured two speakers discussing how to better understand the predictions made by machine-learning models, and why it might be important to do so. I was impressed by the capabilities of the packages demonstrated and the likely importance of having such capabilities as we move forward with deep learning-based automation that could cause catastrophic results if it fails in unexpected ways.
