Silicon Valley´s Futile Search for
Utopia Via the ´Perfect Algorithm´

I find myself thinking quite a bit about algorithms these days. The word itself derives from the Latinized name of the Persian scholar Mohammed ibn-Musa al-Khwarizmi, reputedly the inventor of algebra, who flourished during the Abbasid Caliphate in ninth-century Baghdad. 1200 years later with the advent of the computer, the age of programming and machine-learning dawned, refining and applying al-Kwarizmi’s scheme of numeration into conceptual regions he could never have imagined. According to the standard definition, an algorithm is a set of rules determining the nature and order of computer calculations, the major component of search engines that canvass data

Since when does a mathematical model or equation have to be an algorithm? Equation didn´t sound cool enough?

I think the author understands that all of these algorithms will fail for the same reason that socialism, communism, and all other forms of central planning fail: it is not possible for one individual, or even a small number of individuals, (even if those individuals are computers or networks) to know enough to make the correct decisions for a large number of people which are necessary to obtain the desired results, no matter what the desired results are.

They are not going to change their biases, implemented in the "algorithm." All it is is a low-cost replacement for a human editor. With all the biases a human editor might have.

Google, Ywitter and Facebook survive on traffic.They sell ads forced on the user. The only way to express disgust with their practices is to avoid using them.

Dickey Betts in critical condition after

SARASOTA COUNTY — Dickey Betts has been hospitalized after a freak accident at his home. Betts, the “Ramblin’ Man” singer-songwriter and founding Allman Brothers Band guitarist, went out to his backyard on Little Sarasota Bay, and while playing with the family dog, slipped and cracked his head, causing bleeding in his brain. Betts has been sedated at an undisclosed local hospital following the accident that occurred Monday evening at the Osprey home he shares with wife, Donna. David Spero, Betts’ longtime friend and manager, said the beloved rock legend is listed “in critical but stable condition.” Brain surgery, to relieve swelling, has

One of the tricks liberals love most is taking something that is as close to universally despised as humanly possible, like racism, police shooting innocent people, or rape, and then declaring that they are bravely against it while their opponents are for it. To provide evidence for their gaslighting, they redefine the terms they’re discussing in the most dubious and polarizing ways imaginable. “Oh, you’re against disrespecting the flag?” Then you must want black men to be shot by the police! “Oh, you’re not in favor of tearing down historical statues because the owners had slaves?” Then you must hate

A Catholic priest at Resurrection Parish in Chicago has angered Cardinal Cupich after he planned an event to burn an LGBTQ "pride" flag he found stashed away in his rectory. A victim of sexual abuse himself, Father Paul John Kalchik announced his intention to burn the sacrilegious flag in protest on the parish website. "On Saturday, Sept. 29, the Feast of Ss. Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, we will burn, in front of church, the rainbow flag that was unfortunately hanging in our sanctuary during the ceremonial first Mass as Resurrection parish," he wrote. The flag wasn´t just hung in the

Christine Blasey Ford´s lawyer has announced that Ms. Ford will not testify until the FBI completes yet another investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh that everyone knows will never happen. It was already highly unlikely she was ever going to testify; this is a convenient excuse, a stalling game. But it is more than the usual cheap political stunt. It´s vicious, ugly, and more than slightly sadistic. In regards to Judge Kavanaugh, Democrats are channeling Comrade Beria´s famous dictum: "Show me the man and I´ll show you the crime." Not only are they despicable to Kavanaugh — a man with an impeccable

ARLINGTON, Texas — One of the things that has made Blake Snell so good this season for the Rays is his refusal to be satisfied with anything he does. No matter how well he pitches, he finds flaws in his performance and identifies something he can perform better. Regardless of whom he beats, he insists the next opponent will present even more of a challenge. Whatever achievement he reaches, he declined to acknowledge it with much more than a gratuitous shrug. So Tuesday, after he reached the major milestone of 20 wins, he certainly didn´t want to make too much

On Tuesday night, the press added yet another indignity to the family of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. CBS News reporter Kathryn Watson revealed that reporters had besieged the family home of Kavanaugh. The judge´s wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, had a very classy response to this situation. "Per our CBS News cameraman at Kavanaugh´s house, his wife handed out cupcakes from Sprinkles to any of the photogs and producers who wanted them," Watson tweeted. [Tweet] Sprinkles is an iconic cupcakes shop first founded in Beverly Hills, Calf. It is considered one of the first cupcake bakeries.

TAMPA — Police are bringing manslaughter charges against a Tampa man accused of throwing a fatal punch last April at well-known local muralist Matt Callahan. The suspect, 34-year-old Keith Mauga of Tampa, already is serving five years for aggravated battery in an attack on a St. Petersburg man. He was scheduled to be arrested in prison on the manslaughter charge. Police found Callahan in a median on Gandy Boulevard about 3 a.m. April 11, suffering from a head injury. Callahan died two days later at Tampa General Hospital. Callahan was 40 and left a wife and 5-year-old son. His murals

The Science and Environmental Policy Project produces a weekly newsletter on climate-related subjects, The Week That Was. I highly recommend subscribing to TWTW as the easiest way to keep abreast of climate news. This week’s edition begins, not for the first time, with a famous quotation from Richard Feynman, one of the greatest of 20th Century scientists: "It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong." The catastrophic anthropogenic global warming theory is falsified by observation, and therefore is wrong. Ken Haapala, SEPP’s President, explains.

Trust a "psychologist" to wreak havoc with someone else´s family. When Christine Blasey Ford finally surfaced her over three decades-old claim of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh, when they were both teenagers, did she consider for a moment the effect of her accusation on Kavanaugh´s daughters, already escorted from the hearing room after witnessing their father being endlessly attacked by maniacs in the audience, not to mention Kavanaugh´s wife? And how about the dozen girls the judge used to coach who came to the hearing? Originally thrilled to be so honored, how do you think they and their families now

“Traitor” is normally considered a harsh word, but it is the only printable thing I have called “Republican” Senator Jeff Flake since he announced, a few hours ago, that he is “not comfortable voting yes” on Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. His concern is the ridiculously stale allegation by Democrat professor Christine Ford that Kavanaugh groped her and tried to kiss her at a party when they were both high school students more than 30 years ago. You might reasonably think this is a joke. Unfortunately not. Kavanaugh unequivocally denies Ford’s allegation, and the only witness to the event

September 11, 2001 brought down more than the twin towers. It collapsed the old Arab order. "The traditional great powers—Egypt, Iraq, and Syria— [became] barely functional states." It also warped the ´Global World order´. If the Bush years were an attempt to restore the promise of the turn of the century through American power, Obama represented an abandonment of that effort. After 2008, despite the Surge, the West no longer seemed resolved to turn back the calendar. Instead it would try to adapt to the new circumstances. Jeffrey Goldberg summarized the shift in a 2016

Since high school keg parties at the elite prep schools attended by Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey are now a matter of consuming interest to the Democrat-media complex, it is perhaps telling that the high school yearbooks of Holton Arms, the school attended by Blasey, have been scrubbed from the web. The blog Cult of the First Amendment says: On Monday Sept. 17th, Christine Blasey Ford’s high school yearbooks suddenly disappeared from the web. I read them days before, knew they would be scrubbed, and saved them.

Eviscerating Kavanaugh: Sen. Feinstein,

Watching the slow, public evisceration of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Senate Democrats —on the strength of one unsubstantiated charge of alleged sexual aggression 36 years ago when Kavanaugh was in high school — a question comes to mind: Have you no sense of decency, Sen. Feinstein? Decency was once an important feature of the Democratic Party’s story. Long before Bork became a verb, long before Clarence Thomas was dragged through the mud because a conservative black man proved a profound threat to Democrats, the party held fast to the notion of decency.

In an email to committee staffers obtained by CBS News, Ford´s lawyer Debra Katz wrote that Ford "wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety.

Giving Christine Blasey Ford the opportunity to testify about her unsubstantiated accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is, somehow, silencing her, Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (R-NY) declared Wednesday night. Refusing to launch an FBI investigation into Ford’s claims is also “silencing her,” Sen. Gillibrand said in a tweet: “Denying Dr. Ford an FBI investigation is silencing her. Forcing her into a sham hearing is silencing her. And pushing through Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation is silencing her.” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has offered Ford four options: A public hearing; A private hearing; A public staff interview;

Christine Blasey Ford´s allegation that Brett Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her when they were teens has thrown his Supreme Court nomination into doubt. But as senators spar over the terms for a new hearing which may or may not happen, inconsistencies in the story have emerged that could embolden Kavanaugh´s defenders. (Snip) "There are an awful lot of questions, inconsistencies, gaps, and that´s why to be fair to both, we need to know what happened," Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a key Republican vote, told reporters this week.

The Deep State is in an obvious panic mode since President Donald Trump ordered a number of documents relating to the Russia investigation be declassified. Joining the loud choir of those who are pushing for insubordination against the president is former CIA Director John Brennan. (Photo) Appearing on MSNBC on Tuesday, Brennan urged people in the intelligence community to ignore the president’s order. The former CIA head was stripped of his security clearance by Trump in August for his bizarre behavior. “A number of individuals are trying to protect Mr. Trump and abusing their authorities and their powers, whether it

Christine Blasey Ford´s legal team has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to agree to certain terms before she sits down for a potential interview over her accusation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago, two sources told Fox News on Thursday night. Among the terms: Only members of the committee -- no lawyers -- can question her; Kavanaugh cannot be in the room at the time; and Kavanaugh should be questioned first, before he has the opportunity to hear Ford´s testimony. The requests, some of which appeared to be negotiable, capped a whirlwind

Sen.

In an interview with CNN, the Democratic senator says that committee members are bullying Ford by calling for her testimony without the support of corroborating witnesses or an FBI investigation into the credibility of her claim. "I don´t think she should be bullied into this scenario, where it´s a ´he-said, she-said´ when many of the committee members
