    17230: Knowledge Engineered Boyfriend

    hwms.coverart

    So what’s so bad about Knowledge Engineering? You’re just systematizing what your company knows. Just trying to bring some order to the chaos of the corporate world. However, it always requires a compromise. Squeezing a 7 and a half foot into a 6 and a half Louboutin, as Anna would say. In no situation are the problems of the knowledge engineered boyfriend. To ask the question of the ages, it is better to be a 70% with a 20% probability or a 20% boyfriend with a 70% probability.
