It’s not the pandemic that’s over, what’s over is the optimism that an imminent vaccine approval (or change of administration) would end the pandemic. twitter.com/hyperplanes/status

Arguably they can't even learn language...

Sticking my neck out here, but.....

I don't understand why people think machines could possibly learn common sense from language alone. twitter.com/GaryMarcus/status/

I like how the graphic even allows for p-values larger than one. Hyper-evidence?

What's next? Complex p-value amplitudes that can get entangled?

RT @lakens@twitter.com

I've rarely seen worse advice than trying to interpret p-values directly as measures of evidence. This does not work because of Lindley's paradox, and this graph is misleading (a p = 0.04 can be evidence *against* a hypothesis). If you want to talk evidence, use likelihoods. twitter.com/BobOHara/status/14

Google killed search algorithms.

RT @Snowden@twitter.com

Is it just me, or have search results become absolute garbage for basically every site? It's nearly impossible to discover useful information these days (outside the ArchWiki).

That's what we do in physics; there is never "ground truth"! We evaluate a theory by its explanatory power, parsimony, and predictiveness. Why do any different with community detection?

The same way we test any other theory: by evaluating how well they explain and simplify the seen data, and predict unseen data.

Like 10 years ago, I had the similar question regarding community detection: If we know the ground truth, what's the point; if not, how can we test the validity of the detected communities? twitter.com/pholme/status/1460

If you think Glenn Greenwald is a right winger or Joe Rogan is a fascist it's because you've disappeared as far into your own ideological anus as people who think Biden is a Marxist. You can disagree with someone without making them the extreme opposite of everything you value.
