Hi, my name is Sebastian! You might know me from work, and this is my work account.
If you know me from @kaerF, that's ok, that's also me.
I work in policy, so here's today's motto.

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 🙈

A l'heure où il est chaudement recommandé de prendre le train, la @SNCF dégrade l'offre entre Lille et Bruxelles et incite les navetteurs à op…

I don't want flying cars and hyperloops, I just want cheap trains that work.

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.

#AssistiveComputation #MachineLearning #Communication

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.

Calling the United States out on its imperialism, but refusing to acknowledge when Russia and China do the same doesn't make you an anti-imperialist.
