On the other hand, a DL model is excellent at reproducing local visual likeness (what it's fitted on), yet it has no understanding of the parts & their organization.— François Chollet (@fchollet) September 25, 2022

no, it’s the difference between having an explicit functional model and working purely in an image space that is correlated with labels.— Gary Marcus (@GaryMarcus) September 25, 2022

If I have a functional model that explains how multiplication works, then I can multiply any two arbitrarily large numbers.
If all I have is a latent space shaped from labeled data, any answers will be at best statistical-significant guesses.
Exceptional bit of propaganda from Ukraine (better with the sound up).

Impressed that people need to keep saying that Russia is banning males 18 to 65 from leaving the country. The average male life expectancy in Russia is just over 66 years. We are talking about almost all living Russian males here. https://t.co/aAdMdkU9Lg— Phillips P. OBrien (@PhillipsPOBrien) September 21, 2022

Katie Porter (who is good at this) already has an ad about the national abortion ban running in the LA-Orange TV market.
“Sen. Lindsey Graham's national 15-week abortion ban would likely force many women to undergo invasive transvaginal ultrasounds before terminating pregnancies, according to doctors” - per @jonallendc. https://t.co/8Ogi7zQISg— Sahil Kapur (@sahilkapur) September 20, 2022
All four of these states (particularly Arizona and Florida) were net pro-choice before Dobbs, and the data we've seen since have suggested that Roe has grown more popular.
"Graham's abortion ban has won the support of Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who is running for re-election; Rep. Ted Budd, R-N.C., who is seeking a Senate seat in his state; and GOP Senate nominees Herschel Walker in Georgia and Blake Masters in Arizona." https://t.co/DAPSvN1V5v— Ronald Brownstein (@RonBrownstein) September 20, 2022

In black swan season, you should try to have viable candidates in even long shot elections. Case in point.

In 1612 Galileo Galilei was the first to propose that the Sun rotated on its axis.— Fermat's Library (@fermatslibrary) September 26, 2022
He observed the Sun through his Helioscope at the same time each day and drew sunspots onto a white paper. He observed the motion of the spots across the Sun. See his observations below. pic.twitter.com/1DHtnBlhYk
