Pete Warden writes convincingly about computer scientists’ focus on improving machine learning algorithms, to the exclusion of improving the training data that the algorithms interpret, and how that focus has slowed the progress of machine learning. The problem is as old as data-processing itself: garbage in, garbage out.
As the digital world gets more integrated with daily life, mobile apps are used as tools to get things done and gateways that keep us connected. They help us accomplish work and enjoy our hobbies, coworkers and friends are just a tap away, and our ability to handle tasks, receive information and communicate has been increased exponentially.
