The tragedy in France with the #GiletJaunes protests is that there is still an expectation from the protesters and their supporters (a majority of The French) which still look up to the government for a solution to job insecurity and seem to hold them accountable for it (1/7)
#giletsjaunes on one hand completely fail to realise that Globalisation and Capitalism operate on a global scale and cannot be tackled at a national level let alone by the government. However, the French Government has a dual responsibility in the emergence of the movement (2/7)
On one hand it cultivates its centrality in the economic affairs of the country including on innovation. The Villani report on #AI on which it hyper communicated is best left to the private or academic sector. By doing so it fosters an illusion of its power and omnipotence (3/7)

#huxleysummit - @joswinson argues for a code of ethics for #AI. I absolutely agree. But how do we hold people to it? Last week's #CUKC roundtable tackled this. Conclusion? No conclusion. Because competing interests of business, academia, and law-makers mean it's hugely difficult.
There are several approaches: I'd love to see an external ethics review conducted for any project (academic or commercial) using human participants or human data. Academia already does this but businesses are reluctant as their research is confidential/sensitive. #huxleysummit
We could try an ethics charter along the lines of equality charter/Athena SWAN, where businesses/research groups voluntarily sign up to a code of conduct. But, as @julianhuppert said at #CUKC, who funds this? Who evaluates it? #HuxleySummit

✨🧠 The ecosystem that has grown up around @TensorFlow in the last few years blows my mind. There's just so much functionality, compared to some of the other, newer frameworks.

👉Consider this an ever-expanding thread for me to take notes + wrap my brain around products. Ready?
1) @TensorFlow Extended (TFX)

It's no secret that I 💕 #TFX and all of its tooling for deploying machine learning models into production. If you care about keeping your models up-to-date and monitoring them, you should check out the product + its paper.

tensorflow.org/tfx/?hl=zh-cn
2) @TensorFlow Hub

If you want to train your model on a small data set, or improve generalization, you'll need to use something called transfer learning. #TFHub modules make it easy—and are available in an #OSS marketplace: tfhub.dev.

How curiosity-driven autonomous goal setting enables to discover
independantly controllable features of environments

Imagine a robot perceiving a scene through low-level pixels.

It has no prior knowledge of its body (it only knows it can send numerical
numbers as motor commands that produce unknown movements of unknow body parts)
It also does not know that the scene is composed of "objects". Yet, around it there are several objects: some of them can be controlled, others not (distractors)

How could it discover and represent entities, and find out which ones are controllable (and learn to control them)?

Since people have been asking I thought I'd recap my #dystopia talk at @theuxcrunch from Thursday. The examples used are not what if scenarios. These all happened. #triggerwarning's apply. If you can make it thru to the end I have suggestions for how we can claw back some hope.
This is a quote you’ve all probably seen a million times. #Advertising & #techie shitheads love quoting it before they do trends porn. What they never seem to understand is how politically subversive the last bit is. B/c those wankers abuse it I swore I’d never use it.
Still, paraphrasing it is useful for my point. One person’s future is another person’s dystopia and thanks to the fundamental power of the Internet as a tool for distribution we can spread dystopia far and wide. Often before we know it, realise it, or even imagine it.

Things are starting to change. What future do we want?

The political left and alt-right will use technology (incl. #AI/#AGI) & near-certain runaway #climate change. How to turn threats into opportunities? An intro to #ExtinctionRebellion research: vimeo.com/297453366 1/n
This film introduces a political theory on necessary conditions for climate mitigation (a.k.a.: "saving the world"). Let's call this theory "carbon language" until we find a better term. Don't worry, this thread will be short and easy to understand. vimeo.com/297679220 2/n
Indeed, this thread is entirely unscientific because science can tell us only how to save the world, not why. Why preserve life on Earth? Why live good lives? These are ethical questions; their answers depend on our values, and if we want to mitigate climate change, we will 3/n

I had the opportunity to attend the #NATO-Industry Forum in Berlin yesterday and the day before, and to moderate the session on autonomy in warfare. A few observations (thread)
[1]
EU-NATO relations were a big topic, with lots of discussion of the European Defence Fund, PESCO, etc. Everyone, including EU commissioner @EBienkowskaEU and Gen Sec Stoltenberg emphasised that Europe's defence efforts are complementary and not in competition with NATO...
[2]
...and yet, the fact that this needs to be continuously emphasised at least points to some worries somewhere.

New @theRSAorg publication out today. Ideas for a 21st Century Enlightenment. It is accompanied by a survey that shows deep pessimism about the future and a strong desire to reach beyond #Brexit thersa.org/discover/publi…
75% see #brexit as distracting from other pressing issues - both remain and leave supporters agree. People do trust experts. But they want a greater voice and say themselves. Only 21% think Britain will be better in 2030 than today. And yet, we don't despair.
We propose a new way forward on education - @JulianAstle and @LauraJPartridge explore what education for enlightenment looks like - mission-led by teachers, parents, and communities. thersa.org/discover/educa… #edutwitter #education

Feel so lucky to have snagged a seat in the totally packed room listening to powerhouse @safiyanoble talking about her work at @Harvard @HarvardHistSci Department #criticalracestudies #tech #ai #algorithmicbias
Starting out with her insights about the combined racialization and hypersexualization of searches for black girls on google, @safiyanoble ties it into a much longer historical narrative about racism, sexualization, and oppression of black women and girls in the US
She goes on to talk about how so many black women, people of color, & white women were leading charge to connect the actions of Google & other info behemoths to this history, showing how these platforms were not neutral & how critical they were becoming to our political landscape

Panel 2, on granting agencies and #citizenscience w/ @mgfortin_rd @NSERC_CRSNG + Ted Hewitt @SSHRC_CRSH + Serge Marchand @FRQS1 + Louise Poissant @FRQSC + Michael Strong @CIHR_IRSC #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @mgfortin_rd says #citizenscience and participative science is incredibly important. This isn't only including public in research, it's engaging communities who have knowledge incl #indigenous traditional knowledge.
... Current project ongoing, is a northern community that wants to better document the status of their natural resources (air quality, water) and to analyze the impact of #climatechange & other human impacts on these. There is added value to including these communities. #CSPC2018

#CSPC2018 panel on #scienceadvice starts!

@DLEKirkwood chief scientist of @NRCan says issue is not do much making sure science is valued in govt (seems it is) but to ensure evidence is used in policy. Plus, policy is inherently quicker than science.

#scipol #canpoli #cdnsci
... The challenge for new science advisors and chief scientists is to ensure that the need for #EBDM in policy is understood across the department, across govt. #CSPC2018

This week @BBCTwo aired a 1 hr program on #AI for #healthcare,
bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b…
produced @teamWingspan @ArchieBaron, moderated by @FryRsquared, & brought to my attention by @pearsekeane. It didn't show in the US, so I am going to review a few key points here
First, the #AI hype from @babylonhealth, a symptom checker, which is a major focus of the documentary. A quote from their CEO:
[No you're not.]
Remember the paper the company posted on their website claiming their #AI it outperformed 7 doctors (and other claims). Well apparently that was submitted to peer-review @TheLancet and here is the preview:
