Leslie Lamport revolutionized how computers talk to each other. Now he’s working on how engineers talk to their machines.
For now, absolutely nothing. But researchers and firms are optimistic about the applications.
Whatever field you are in, if it uses language, it is about to be transformed.
«Whatever field you are in, if it uses language, it is about to be transformed. The changes that are coming are fundamental to every method of speaking and writing that presently exists.»
The chess machines never stop playing.
The neurons in our cortex, the outermost “crust” of our brain, seem to have uniquely evolved to sustain complex computations in their input cables.
The problem of common-sense reasoning has plagued the field of artificial intelligence for over 50 years. Now a new approach, borrowing from two disparate lines of thinking, has made important…
Julian's Blog - The Internet from Rocks — A High Level Explanation of Computers and the Internet
Machine learning holds promise for democratizing education. It can bring personalized, interactive learning into reach for anyone with a tablet and an internet connection. This interesting yet unsettling article for The Guardian examines the dark side of AI-assisted learning. Alex Beard – a former teacher and author of Natural Born Learners – describes how, while students are learning through virtual teachers, the providers are learning just as much about them.
How Computers Think: Introduction
Digitization promises to make medical care easier and more efficient. But are screens coming between doctors and patients?
How does Refind curate?
It’s a mix of human and algorithmic curation, following a number of steps:
- We monitor 10k+ sources and 1k+ thought leaders on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets the most relevant links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, mark as read, read later, «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
How does Refind detect «timeless» pieces?
We focus on pieces with long shelf-lives—not news. We determine «timelessness» via a number of metrics, for example, the consumption pattern of links over time.
How many sources does Refind monitor?
We monitor 10k+ content sources on hundreds of topics—publications, blogs, news sites, newsletters, Substack, Medium, Twitter, etc.
Can I submit a link?
Indirectly, by using Refind and saving links from outside (e.g., via our extensions).
How can I report a problem?
When you’re logged-in, you can flag any link via the «More» (...) menu. You can also report problems via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
