kaffeecup In Finnland ist die Zahl der Obdachlosen dank des „Housing First“-Konzepts stark zurückgegangen. 4 von 5 Betroffene schaffen so den Weg in ein stabiles Leben, was für den Staat billiger als die Obdachlosigkeit ist.

Verrückt, was mit weitsichtiger Sozialpolitik alles möglich ist.

journelle In Frage gestellt wird, müssen sich die wehren; die am meisten vom System profitieren oder glauben eventuell davon profitieren zu können.

journelle Das Problem ist also nicht der Sozialismus. Das Problem ist eine Derailingstrategie. In dem Moment in dem das aktuelle System mit Forderungen wie Wohnraum für alle, wirkliche Chancengleichheit, Auswahl nach Kompetenz&nicht nach Connection, Infragestellung von Vollzeitarbeit usw

ma_rodda Well, I guess it's time to pretend I have a gender in order to get a haircut. Genders have been in short supply lately, so wish me luck.

berndulrich Ich verstehe einfach nicht, wieso Menschen mit hohem Einkommen mehr Leistungsträger sein sollen, als solche mit niedrigem oder mittlerem Einkommen. Entspricht überhaupt nicht meiner Lebenserfahrung twitter.com/rosidaggi/stat…

publictorsten @saschalobo I wish to register a complaint. This trend is dead. It seized to be. It's expired and gone to see it's maker. This is a late trend. It rests in peace. If you had not nailed it to the perch it would be pushing up the daisies. This is an ex-trend. pic.twitter.com/QnmORJX9xO

RDBinns Machine learning is a bit like cocaine in the 1880s:

- been used in a weaker form for centuries
- some surprisingly successful early applications led to it now being over-prescribed
- beginning to understand that performance degrades after repeated use, negative feedback loops

GalaxyKate You ever wonder how much more efficiently public transit would run if we got rid of all the turnstyles, fare cops, & ticket machines? Like just ..provide it as a free government service.

wellformedness And virtually all tutorial code I've seen, from all three packages, wouldn't make it through industry code review. Tons of badly designed ad-hoc functions and bad variable naming...lots of stuff like `x = foo(x); x = bar(x)`.

wellformedness I have quickly come to the conclusion that "computation graph"-based NN packages are deeply inconsistent with basic software engineering principles like avoiding side effects, eschewing unintuitive operator overloading, and generally just saying no to "magic".

_inesmontani Even beyond portfolios, I think there's a huge benefit in mixing different skills & areas of development 💯

It's also key to our company. I wrote a post on "how front-end can improve AI" back in 2016 (!) which outlined that philosophy & product vision: explosion.ai/blog/how-front… twitter.com/chipro/status/…
