Saturday Keynote at #ODSCWest Carrie Grimes Bostock - Data Science & Automated Decision Making. Automation has inputs, model(s) and potential outputs for action.
What is the goal of your models? Interpretability is important, but not the only thing. Other measures exist, but understanding your model is important to prevent outcomes, override recommendations, and to connect models to other systems - or stacks of models & systems. #ODSCWest
Example: placing racks in the Santa Clara data centre. Considerations, restrictions on space, power, future use of space, etc. Also: People install racks. They need to be able to intervene based on info that the placement model doesn't have. #ODSCWest

The replace-libraries-with-Amazon thing is such a fascinating microcosm of the wretchedness of our current take culture.
First some hapless, unheard-of practitioner of the dismal science has, as is his discipline's wont, a very rational and logical epiphany about the market inefficiency of an institution whose very purpose is to provide a service outside the market.
In times of yore the take would have been read by a few other academics, or perhaps raised some eyebrows in a regional paper, and in either case been promptly forgotten.

Happy to oblige! The biggest reason that a few frameworks dominate the landscape is probably straightforward inertia. Most devs (those of use who chat about this stuff on Twitter are NOT representative) don't want to investigate and learn alternatives; they have better things 1/
to do, and engineering PMs aren't picking the 'best' technology, they're picking the safe one that means they'll be able to hire some poor sap to maintain everything a couple of years down the line. Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM. These dynamics favour incumbents. 2/
So does the cacophony of options. Why do tech meetups always serve pepperoni pizza, even though almost no-one would actually *choose* it given alternatives? Because it's something that very few people will object to. It gets the job done — it's 'good enough'. 3/

It's 70 days until the last #Netrunner worlds and so I'm going to tweet one Netrunner memory a day
We recorded the 100th episode of @RunLastClick today so here's a #content memory: @Milk_Jester commentating the 2016 Worlds finals with @FoxfordComma. I have never been so proud.
2/70: Bournemouth Store Champ: the event that launched a thousand memes. Here we see @neoreadinggrid fending off an attempted dype from @rotage. This was a great weekend - the Readox meta invaded Bournemouth, stayed in the UK's equivalent of the Key Inn, and got ice cream 🍦

So since the world is a tyre fire AGAIN today, who wants a thread of adorable animals from the Danum Valley National Park in Borneo?

Oh you do.... so here we go.

The red ❤️ leaf 🍃 monkey 🐒
Red leaf monkeys move in small troupes through the forest. They live mainly on leaves and they are totally adorable.
Red leaf monkeys are sometimes called little orangutans, though they're not related and have very different social behaviours and diets.

My experience with learning modes - Text vs Video content

- Due to concentration lapse, it's easier to drop off for a few minutes from a video content (> 5 mins)

- Concentration lapses happen in text too, but its easier to re-read the para vs rewinding the video

- For consuming the same amount of content, text form is less time consuming than videos.

- To explain complex topics/situations, texts usually take more time building up the context than videos.
- We try to understand things by building mental imagery, that way videos are more efficient than text because it takes a bit of time to build the mental imagery from interpreting the text and yet you might not be building the right imagery.

All right @Twitter since you like bragging about your outstanding performance for handling #terrorist #propaganda, let's disclose what really happens behind curtains.

Here is how @TwitterSupport is actually doing with #ISIS right now

To sum it up, 130 regular users are currently attacked for 3 weeks by #ISIS bots, in front of @TwitterSupport, bc they spend spare time to report #terrorist #content and make @twitter a better place.
18 are already suspended. While terrorist sing like free birds

@Delbius @jack
Not to mention these hacked accounts full of #ISIS propaganda videos which stay up for weeks despite countless abuse reports.
Here is one example :

1/ #THREAD Ah, teeny tiny demographical instance of something, hastily wound up to a coy, careful kind of un-endorsement of something else, even uses paper in a medical / scientific journal to try substantiate this un-endorsement placement #Beware #BullAtWork How 'well-connected'
2/ and how reminiscent of a certain type of anti-vaccination trolling / disinformation.😬 #Questions such as: A/what percentage of the population actually use the product B/ what percentage of that specific demographic have been injured seriously, in a clinical sense or in the --
3/ particular mode described in the, eh, 'article' ? C/ So even if as seems likely this only verifiably happened to a tiny % of users,& even if the argument that it is all just public knowledge/public info. is applied so it appears to be, lets say for the heck of it, 'authentic',
