Re: The catalysts for SJW

I would have stopped at social media. In most of the '00s you didn't have a Facebook account unless you had a college student email, only more tech savvy teens hung out on MySpace, hardly anyone knew what Twitter was, and Snapchat and Instagram didn't exist.

Trump elected himself?

So, someone want to explain to me how using emergency declaration to do what congress won't let you do is an abuse of power, but expanding the SCOTUS because you don't like the judges isn't? Did you read the article? They don't want to do it with an "emergency declaration." If Democrats h...

Are you using the word judgement in place of decision making? The facet of AI that, IMO,should concern you all is the machine learning. The ML will do things it hasn't been programmed to do. Not everything that's AI will/can/should have this capability. For instance, an AI can adapt to different si...

Re: **** Trump Says

I'm guessing he was anywhere between a half standard deviation and a whole one above average.

Though he's definitely not as sharp as he used to be.
