The hacked email from Colin Powell then reveals that what the office people tell us and what they really think are two different things.
Politicians work for us – presumably we are their employer. Yet we think they know very little of what they do and what we need to know to vote smartly. Powell’s comments are actually a lot more damaging to Clinton than Trump, as she works with Clinton and refers to him as a friend. Obviously, if it was up to him, neither would be considered for the presidency.
In technology, particularly as we move from analytics to artificial intelligence, one of the most important elements is data integrity. It is a common belief that if we create an AI that kills us, it is probably due to a mistake – such as failure to ensure the quality of information and training to achieve it.
Skynet is indeed the result of poor programming in Terminator movies. The training led him to determine that humans are the problems he has to solve – with prejudice.
I’m going to share some thoughts on why Russia is likely to work for the United States – albeit spontaneously – by hacking away at political emails. I’m closing with my product for this week: the iPhone app can help you vote smart.
One of the biggest problems facing our government is transparency. Politicians find it more appropriate to lie to us than to tell us the truth. This very common practice of the job should zero them in – as in the case of any employee who came to work and answered the questions asked. You cannot make a fair decision about too much inaccurate data.
While many presidents focused on the idea of transparency, President Obama was possibly the most vocal about this need. Ironically, it is not true that these people are short of transparency in their positions, but also – and the current president is an example of this – that the more “transparency” they shout, the more transparent they actually are. Will go
For example, Chelsea Manning (born Bradley Manning) and Eric Snowden were looted and criminalized for releasing classified information that showed the United States was acting unlawfully. They were punished more harshly for their leaks than those who did their part – and who were actually behaving criminally.
In addition, it appears that little or no effort has been made to solve the underlying problem, which is the lack of a safe procedure that allows a person to report a government crime without criminalizing himself . Therefore, it is now easier to commit a crime as a public servant before Manning and Snowdine, because those who can now think of reporting a crime know that they will be held captive.
So we have a big bipartisan problem: government officials do not tell us the truth, and they arrest those who are treating them criminally. Oh, and those who run the government are not what we think.
Problem of artificial intelligence
If the information being published is intentionally inaccurate, then we have a major problem as we move towards deep learning systems, especially artificial intelligence. This is because these systems will be presented with the information being false and thus destroyed.
As our government demonstrates to them, these systems – operating at the speed of light – will try to overcome the wrong problems with well-researched and researched responses. Given that the real problems are either nonexistent or incorrectly defined, there is almost no way what these systems do that will cause the real problem to disappear. Often times, this will make it worse.
These are learning machines, and unlike people – who often fail to accept mistakes and thus do not learn or grow from them – teaching systems are designed to present error as an educational experience. It is programmed to identify the error as a problem, and learn how to fix it.
The fix may be to get rid of the source of the error – who would be the humans who were lying in the path of judgment.
In short, the old dictator of the database “garbage in, garbage out” has a completely different meaning when we talk about systems that can control everything from utilities and services to law enforcement and defense.
Given that Russia is known enough to be honest, this is largely ridiculous, but its slow secret email leaks are forcing political forces to feel that nothing special – no matter how much privacy Want it will be transparent.
