The SNCF is about to cancel even more trains between Lille and Brussels.
Fun fact: of my last 4 trips, 3 were late. If you ask for a refund, you cannot use it on cross-border trains. Discount cards work in Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Luxembourg, but not in Belgium 🙈

1/ Hear me out if you're working on #AI/#ML, especially on the ethics of it all. As you know, there is an urgent need to demistify this subject. This also requires *us* to communicate in a different way.
I have two suggestions to that end. I'll give the why in this thread:
1. Stop using the word #algorithm, and start using descriptive language.
2. Stop using the term 'artificial intelligence'. I propose 'assistive computation' instead.
5/ Now for the much more complicated suggestion: stop using the term artifical intelligence.
The point has been made by many people that #AI is neither artificial, nor intelligent. I'm not going to repeat the arguments here. If you have read up to this point, you already know them.
Knowing this, it's foolish to keep using this term. It leads many people (even computer scientists!) to believe things about AI which just aren't realistic at all.
@ilyaz Policymakers included! One of many examples: many of them believe application of enough “AI” can magically solve content moderation issues on billion-user social networks (without creating any freedom of expression issues)
What an excellent Sunday project - I have set a new home page for @myepapp and I could immediately verify it for Mastodon! 👍
This means that media attachments can also be collectively shared across the fediverse, just like messages already are.

Johnson slams France and Germany but praises the EU for it's response to Russia's war on Ukraine

Giving Ukraine weapons with higher ranges will help them end the war faster, saving Ukrainian lives.
The destruction of critical communications, headquarters, and logistics hubs allowed Ukraine to reduce casualties while it maximized battlefield successes. But how sustainable is this and what can be improved?
