Aneristic Illusions / Re: Algorithmic Transparency
September 03, 2020, 06:58:24 PM
Okay, it's just that with shit like back- propagation, hidden layers, and various compounded levels of convolution, I'd be surprised if anyone (persons) could actually make heads or tails of how it works.

Also, it's seems like the algorithm"s initial proof of work was the extent to which it could manipulate behavior. Given that directive, I think ITS understanding of democracy is probably more akin to crowd-control than it is to giving people a greater chance of/at autonomy.

Some algorithms may need to be redesigned, not to mention all the biases inherent to whatever datasets were used. Yeah, so adding data-set transparency is going to be sticky too.

The Senate report into 2016 Russian interference already establishes Trump's Russia links beyond a shadow of a doubt. Just nobody paid attention to it.

Besides, what Qanon considers Trump "acknowledging" them and what actually counts as Trump acknowledging them are two very different things. Qanon nerds are convinced Trump typos and weird formatting are evidence of him communicating in code, and not being a senile, rage-filled old man with a poor grasp of the Queen's English.


I swear to God, someone requested "reach around". I'm going off the assumption that that one was trolling, but if I find that in a Trump Tweet, I'm flagging that shit  :lol:

Quotereasons are not what wins over such powder kegs.

Again, nobody fucking asked you. Not one fucking person even hinted at asking you. Instead, I'm going to give you a number of suggestions you can do instead of being here, you tiny moron fuck.

Change your password to a keyboard smash and log out.
Live in a dumpster.
Fist-fight a brown bear.
Cut your power cable.
Purchase and race a combine harvester.
Set your computer on fire (be sure to use a magnesium firestarter).
Eat twenty or more oranges in under 24 hours.
Go join the #discord IRC channel and find out where zlax and the other Nazicordians live these days.
Make a threat on this forum again so you can get banned.
Raise emus.
Climb a dead tree, without safety equipment, in a rainstorm.
Move to a remote Russian peninsula where you can't access the internet.
Live on a boat in the South China Sea.
Start a business adding pointless internet access capabilities to something that doesn't need and can't make use of them, i.e. Juicero.
Sell all of your worldly possessions, invest in Bitcoin, and wait for the market to rise.
Build a rocket to go into space so you can prove the earth is flat.

Yes, the power cable bit  :lulz:
Again, I am impressed.

The situation is so bad, can't believe it.

I'm counting the seconds until this bot starts dumping advertisement links.

I was thinking the same thing
