  • Facebook: Artificial Intelligence Project Is A Game Changer [View article]
    The term "AI" is overused, because these "deep learning" algorithms, while extremely complicated, and self adjusting, are still, nevertheless, just following the coded instruction, and would take an age to pass the Turing test (if ever).

    Yes he is, but I wonder about a man who hasn't wondered what we'll do with all the extra bodies, if we all stop dying (because nobody is going to stop most women wanting babies). Before that though, is the question: Who decides who gets the treatment? Anyone who can afford it?

    True, but you wouldn't know it, the way most CEOs react towards them!

  • Is Facebook Expensive At $51 A Share? [View article]
    Good point, Kurt! Most of the "meteoric rise" was in fact just "struggling to get back to where it was"... It certainly seems to have momentum!

    WS pressure pushes management into short term decisions which are often not the best in the long term.

    That's right Nick; they've had plenty of time to tailor production (for example) to match sales volume, which I once thought was the purpose of management...

    It's 2$ with which W. Street no longer calls the tune...

    Funnily enough, I've been cogitating myself, for many months, about how programs could help me in a planned project, which I estimated would take me at least two years of data crunching, if I tried to do manually, but it still came as a (delightful) surprise, half an hour into my Sunday walk, when I suddenly realised I knew how to write a data miner (not the actual code; that's something I'll have to {re} learn) and get it to check out all the possible operations I want to look at, and produce optima. Better yet, I then figured how to do a program that would replicate such data miners (is this what is referred to as a "meta-program"?) for any number of stocks I want to examine, and all at the touch of a button! Maybe I should offer FB my services?

    Except that Nato may have thrown BBRY a timely life-line: http://on.mktw.net/1fZ... Looks like you are in with a chance, br!

    Or, br, the SP could have shot up, on news of Nato's approval. Criticism by hindsight is silly.

    Nato approval, St? If only this had happened six months ago! Now, it seems too little, too late...

    It's true that P/E alone doesn't tell us much, but with FB, the other metrics make it look overpriced too. I doubt this'll have much effect on the SP, though, at least, not yet...

    And those that could, PM, already have their native social networks, so global expansion will likely be more limited than many are hoping for.

    Maybe Khan Academy, and MIT's free on-line courses, should link to FB?

    That's a fair comment, JP, and it's a very good start, but ultimately, one can't live on "awareness".
