On Trust, Bias, and Privilege: my Response to 'Anti-Blackness is no glitch'

In Winter 2020, Stephanie T. Jones and Natalie Melo wrote ‘Anti-Blackness is no glitch’: The need for critical conversations within computer science education . Jones and Melo mentioned, “The conversation around and application of computer science often reinforces neoliberal ideals” (Jones, Melo, November 25, 2020, pg. 42). Jones and Melo were saying this: the computer science revolution and organizational IT network futuristic left-wing best standards access is telling. For Trust, I am Checking my Privilege But this is not excluding contemporary conversations: any futuristic conversation based on personal interpretation is not from ABBA, so it is not prophecy (NIV, 2 Peter 1:20). For your review, Peter wrote, "For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from [ABBA] as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit" (2 Peter 1:21). You, reader, can predict something shall happen, but prediction is uncertain: it is a terminating series ca

Drone Uses AI and 11,500 Crashes to Learn How to Fly

Learning to Fly by Crashing On 10 May, 2017, Evan Ackerman wrote the IEEE (Institute for Electricians and Electrical Engineers) SPECTRUM article Drone Uses AI and 11,500 Crashes to Learn How to Fly. In Ackerman’s article, Ackerman used a block quote by Carnegie Mellon University roboticists Dhiraj Gandhi, Lerrel Pinto; and Abhinav Gupta, the writers of a paper, “Learning to Fly by Crashing” (Gandhi, et. al., 27 Apr 2017). From Ackerman’s block quote from Gandhi, et. al., “[T]he gap between simulation and real world remains large especially for perception problems” (Gandhi, et. al.). Ackerman contrasted known motion from unconfirmed motion without identifying the pre-existing condition called Schrödinger’s cat in the case that the crashes shall eventually happen without outside help: a continuing crash failure, and in security terms this is interned as a false positive because this helps Schrödinger’s cat stay alive or rest buried in the soil. In this case, this drone detects these t
