Low level AI (not general AI) is already in our everyday lives. For example, the Netflix rexommendation algorithm. If we were to replace that with humans... How would you like to wait 5 minutes for your Netflix recommendations to be manually calculated by a person in India every time rather than the current 0.5 or so seconds?


I'm not sure how netflix works or what it does as I have never used it.

That Artificial Intelligence TECH. is still not being applied to assist us in fixing/repairing (and summoning technical persons as needed) e.g., to troubleshoot our computers, smartphones, as well as all of other TECH. that is becoming an ever greater presence in our lives!

Some job interviewers require that applicants take video calls or $$$ methods of interaction

If you don't have access to Skype or whatever you can't even interview

But s**t I don't understand because, your appearance is only an essential job function for , actor and model

f**k mister redelings

And then idiots expect you to be next to the internet, phone, and car at all times s**t


For example, b*****s emailed me , at the time that we agreed for a , phone interview. They emailed they were "busy" and reschedule. Unless you are constantly checking the email, (which you should not have to do) , you miss a job




Ass holes talk on the phone too much and too loud and play "music" and too many ass holes

That people often seem to equate the existence of a plethora of libraries for a programming language with it being a good language. Example: python.


It's hard to make much headway in some areas of programming without using the most dominant languages in use for the specific case. Try doing data science without Python or R. Or Android programming without java. Not gonna be a smooth ride, and not conducive to collaborating with other programmers.


I don't dispute that a number of libraries exist for python which contain facilities for doing data science, as well as many other tasks, which enable a programmer to do those things without reinventing the wheel. I would complain however that any of it was written in python in the first place. In my experience a lot of people write code in python simply because it's familiar to them (often being one of the first languages people are taught) and not because it has any discernible advantages over other languages. On the contrary it has concrete and often serious disadvantages. The plethora of available libraries seems to be one of the only real arguments in its favor, and a fairly flimsy one at that since it would seem to amount to a sunk cost fallacy.

That a programmer largely uses Java to produce for android is a different matter, of course there's Kotlin too. But then, people often learn functional languages after imperative and object-oriented languages, if at all. And there's so much resistance to them despite their elegance.
