Look at this thing. What is it? Just some kind of poorly drawn squirrel, right? Maybe a spread from an old suburbia-themed National Geographic that went...

Yeah, this stuff is cool. As far as I understand, you get these weird patches of dog because the convolutional models are trained to recognise little patches of dog, regardless of whether they're in one position or another (invariance). This is kind of at odds with more traditional models that might have tried to say, this shape is a bit like a snout, and here are ears, together they look like a dog's head. The really nice example of where this runs counter to expectation is when you get a dumb-bell that only really has a hand attached. This indicates that the whole shape wasn't that informative given the training data, whereas if you asked a human to describe critical features of dumb-bell they would probably say other parts of it as well. I really like the images generated from shallower bits of the network, where the network is capturing low-level features like dots and strokes that approximate pointillisim and impressionism. And that, to a deep neural network, clouds do look like animals.

Our agencies only wished they had this much power - maybe one day soon they will. (Maybe they already do..?)

May this be the last nail in the Coffee Maker DRM'd pods coffin and a warning to those considering something similar. Keurig's "wrong-ness" though seems to be more of the we were wrong because this decision hurt our profitability, NOT we were wrong because it hurt our customers.
Coffee company will bring back “My K-Cup” reusable filter, license more outside brands.

The android Youtube app has gone downhill very fast. In fact some of the decisions for the whole product are strange - why does watching video on a 3g phone default to 720kb/s and yet my ADSL2+ desktop on a large screen defaults to 320kb/s. no matter how many times I change it, it flips back between videos or even between mid-roll ads.

The Zappos holacracy experiment is fascinating for many reasons, but not really the ones that people are talking about.
Zappos is undertaking a fascinating experiment in change management. It's important to evaluate this separately from the experiment with the management structure Holacracy that they are trying at the same time.

Then the kool aid wears off when you realise that all those little post-it notes kill off spontaneous or creative problem solving.

+Will Radford great article and really cool research. I think it has a potential to raise a lot of interesting intersections between drama, sociology and data science.
Sorting through the sort of people our culture gives us the option to be.

sooo tired of the same internet.org ad everywhere, all the time. Getting Neesha on the internet so she can have a facebook account is not really "learning from her".

Very sad to see the news that Sabeen Mahmud was murdered. A waste of a passionate life.
Sabeen was a woman of many talents that mostly revolved around creating digital platforms for arts and culture.
