WR Quick fire
Posted: 11th August 2019
Whole lot of quick references this week. Mostly because I read most of these 2 weeks ago and forgot to update this.
Also I'm looking for more not-men to read so if you have any suggestions please tweet me them.
Anyway, here's a few things that've interested me over the last couple of weeks:
- Intellectual Debt by Jonathan Zittrain. The core of the argument seems to be that AI represents a big risk because it drives towards solutions without necessarily why they work. It's a well written piece and breaks the argument down nicely.
- Cities Skylines is Turing complete by Daniel Bali, continues the internet's drive to implement a computer in anything.
- gov.uk's oldest sites something from my friend, Jonty: a list of the oldest sites on the .gov.uk domain, as recorded by archive.com. Worth it just to time machine back to a time when the internet was bright and full of hope
- Decades-Old computer science conjecture solved in two pages by Erica Klarreich, a good write up of an interesting proof.
