What makes Germans so orderly?

  • In the nearly four years I’ve lived in Germany, that woman’s reprimand was just one of many examples I’ve experienced of Germans strictly adhering to the rules in the name of preserving Ordnung (order).
  • The expression became further tied to German culture when Hindenburg graced the cover of TIME magazine in 1934 with the exclamation “Ordnung muss sein!” printed underneath his photo.
  • Having travelled extensively through all of Germany’s 16 states, I have seen Ordnung operate swiftly and smoothly, from the Black Forest to the Baltic Sea. But I’ve also seen Germans throwing this order overboard at “acceptable” times – be it embracing their carnal core at Carnival, screaming at hordes of armoured guards at football matches or launching fireworks from crowded streets and balconies on New Year’s Eve. In the end, Germany – like any country – is more than just one phrase.

Matrix Calculus for DeepLearning (Part2)

  • We can’t compute partial derivatives of very complicated functions using just the basic matrix calculus rules we’ve seen Blog part 1.
  • For example, we can’t take the derivative of nested expressions like sum(w + x) directly without reducing it to its scalar equivalent.
  • The chain rule comes into play when we need the derivative of an expression composed of nested subexpressions.
  • Chain rule helps in solving problem by breaking complicated expressions into subexpression whose derivatives are easy to compute.
  • Chain rules are defined in terms of nested functions such as y=f(g(x)) for single variable chain rule.
  • As we see in example we can handle nested expression of single variable x using this chain ruleonly when x can effect y through single data flow path.
  • This chain rule that takes into consideration the total derivative degenerates to the single-variable chain rule when all intermediate variables are functions of a single variable.

Twitter, Reddit challenge US rules forcing visa applicants to disclose their social media handles

  • Twitter and Reddit have filed an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit challenging a U.S. government rule change compelling visa applicants to disclose their social media handles.
  • The lawsuit, brought by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University, the Brennan Center for Justice and law firm Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, seeks to undo both the State Department’s requirement that visa applicants must disclose their social media handles prior to obtaining a U.S. visa, as well as related rules over the retention and dissemination of those records.
  • Jessica Herrera-Flanigan, Twitter’s policy chief for the Americas, said the social media rule “infringes both of those rights and we are proud to lend our support on these critical legal issues.” Reddit’s general counsel Ben Lee called the rule an “intrusive overreach” by the government.

The impact of rules on queries

  • As a result, rules can make the queries and requests much simpler to write and manage which in turns allows applications to be more flexible, less error prone and faster.
  • Most queries can be modelled by the IF part of a rule which means that many existing applications could become faster and more flexible with a knowledge graph.
  • If you have a situation today where your current architecture cannot supply the query performance required by your users why not use rules to push the logic about your data into a knowledge graph.
  • The team behind Oxford Semantic Technologies started working on RDFox in 2011 at the Computer Science Department of the University of Oxford with the conviction that flexible and high-performance reasoning was a possibility for data extensive applications without jeopardising the correctness of the results.

Twitter wants to fight Covid-19 misinformation. But Trump keeps lying.

  • From the other side of the aisle, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff in April called on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook to crack down harder on content on their platforms that spread “medical misinformation” (citing a Recode story) about conspiracy theories, like the one that claims the coronavirus is caused by 5G wireless tech.
  • In March, for instance, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube all removed posts from Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro promoting hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus treatment — at the time, the drug hadn’t been proven to help Covid-19 patients, and since then, a study published in the medical journal The Lancet found that Covid-19 patients taking hydroxychloroquine had a higher risk of death than other patients.
  • And good luck trying to understand why YouTube, which says it has trained its computers and its army of content moderators to quickly flag disinformation before it gets circulated on the platform, didn’t act on the video even as millions of people saw it and passed it around.

Everything you need to know about artificial neural networks

  • But when you place hundreds, thousands and millions of neurons in multiple layers and stack them up on top of each other, you’ll obtain an artificial neural network that can perform very complicated tasks, such as classifying images or recognizing speech.
  • When you run a new image through a well-trained neural network, the adjusted weights of the neurons will be able to extract the right features and determine with accuracy to which output class the image belongs.
  • For example, if you wanted to perform image classification tasks with classic machine learning algorithms, you would have to do plenty of complex “feature engineering,” a complicated and arduous process that would require the efforts of several engineers and domain experts.
