Congratulations on choosing to become smarter
Horrific/Terrific will belly-flop into your inbox every Friday. Prepare to be both appalled and entertained. If you simply CANNOT WAIT, have a browse of previous posts.
Or, go straight to these very good ones:
- Timnit Gebru was fired from her research position at Google last year. In this piece I summarise the contents of the research paper which got Google's neural net in a twist...
- I also like to interview industry professionals from time to time. In this recent piece I spoke to Lucie Kaffee about the latest Turing Award winner, and the general state of algorithmic bias.
- Here I have a look at ways in which Big Tech firms abuse their power, and how we seem to be at the mercy of their wretched decision making.
If you decide to UPGRADE to a paid member, not only will you be supporting me to write this newsletter every week, but you will gain access to the members area, which contains longer thought pieces about specific topics.
Thank you for signing up, and I hope you enjoy the lucious swathes of juicy content that I am about to fling in your direction.
