IT Failures, Paradigms, AI Governance, Quantum Hokum


  1. Biggest IT Failures of 2018
    (IEEE) — a coding error with
    the spot-welding robots at Subaru’s Indiana Automotive plant in
    Lafayette, Ind., meant 293 of its new Subaru Ascents had to be sent
    to the car crusher. A similar problem is suspected as the reason
    behind the welding problems affecting the steering on Fiat Chrysler
    Jeep Wranglers.
    This is not the “crushing it” that brogrammers
    intended.

  2. Programming Paradigms for Dummies: What Every Programmer Should
    Know
    This chapter gives an introduction to all the main
    programming paradigms, their underlying concepts, and the
    relationships between them. We give a broad view to help
    programmers choose the right concepts they need to solve the
    problems at hand. We give a taxonomy of almost 30 useful
    programming paradigms and how they are related. Most of them differ
    only in one or a few concepts, but this can make a world of
    difference in programming.

  3. Proposed Model
    Governance
    — Singapore Government’s work on regulating
    AI.

  4. Talent Shortage in Quantum Computing
    (MIT) — an argument that
    we need special training for quantum computing, as it’s a mix of
    engineering and science at this stage in its evolution.
    This chap would disagree
    , colorfully: when a subject which
    claims to be a technology, which lacks even the rudiments of
    experiment that may one day make it into a technology, you can know
    with absolute certainty that this “technology” is total
    nonsense.
    That was the politest quote I could make.
