The random rant of the week by xenor.

Machine Learning

After AlphaGo beats human, it seems more and more programmers and programming languages start to put their hands into the secret hole. I am not there yet, but the trend is really forcing us to face it.

I believe soon enough we will either be programmed by program or write the program to program others. When the time comes, which side will you stand?
