Bookmarked Dust Rising: Machine learning and the ontology of the real (by David Weinberger)
I am looking forward to reading this. Will need to put aside some time to be able to really focus, given the author, and the amount of time taken to write it.
…an article I worked on for a couple of years. It’s only 2,200 words, but they were hard words to find because the ideas were, and are, hard for me. … The article argues, roughly, that the sorts of generalizations that machine learning models embody are very different from the sort of generalizations the West has taken as the truths that matter.
