The 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. [17230] Cast:

Cybercastles & Cyberdefense

hwms.coverart We think about the future in terms of the past. Star Wars, after all, takes place a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. When we think about cyberdefense, we find that we are still think in terms of the static defense of physical infrastructure. We try to defend mobile data with references to earth and stone works from the 8th century. Our Intern, Anna, attempts to explain the basic model of cyber defense as a metaphor of castle defense.  Her description, though completely accurate in argument, has a few errors of fact, errors which should make us rethink how we use metaphor to describe cyberspace.

Big Problems with Big Data

hwms.coverart Big Data. It gives you facts. It tells you what is really happening. It has Volume, Varity, Velocity, Veracity and, of course, Vexation of Spirit. Vexation can come with the data, no matter how much you have of it, tells you more about the structure that gathered it than the truth of any matter. When you have that, you have a problem called Simpson’s Paradox – the bane of Big Data. [17210] Cast:

Anna appeals to Elon Musk

errant.coverart Here’s the trouble with real people.  They don’t don’t write, they don’t call, they just aren’t reliable.  Anna the Intern made an appeal  to Elon Musk early in our run. Did she get a reply?  You tell me. Real people! Anna wants to be a player. She hopes to be a technology media mogul. For her next step, she hopes to host the next binge episode, though she has already hosted two, one on December 22 and the next on December 29. To achieve that goal, she has made an appeal to Elon Musk, though this appeal is also an apology for a slight she fears that she may have made. [16115]Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail
