## Notes on AI

Jul 31. 2024

At the bottom, there is the old version of this page that I decided to remove by the end of 2023 (because things got really, really dark in the silicon valley). It's not that things are lighter since then, but some other places of the planet became *clearly* insane (Olympics in Paris opening? Yeah!), so I decided to restore some version of this page. Maybe will be able to publish the archives some day, even. Let's see how it goes.

AI Tribes

- Symbolists. Ideas from philosophy, psychology and logic. Inverse Deduction
- Connectionists. Neural networks. Backpropagation
- Evolutionaries. Simulation is the king. Genetic Programming
- Bayesians. Everything is probabilities. Statistics. Bayesian Inference
- Analogizers. Detection of metapatterns. Support Vector Machines
Machine Learning

Pattern Recognition, statistical modeling, data mining, knowledge discovery, predictive analytics, data science, adaptive systems, self-organizing systems. ML *is* subset of AI.

Old version.

Had to re-do the page again

Jan 15 2023.

This used to be a page discussing some stuff from this book.

The Theory That Would Not Die: How Bayes' Rule Cracked the Enigma Code, Hunted Down Russian Submarines, and Emerged Triumphant from Two Centuries of Controversy

The aspects were mostly mathematics, mostly Bayes, a little bit of number theory.

Then it got to string theory and ZK, so I decided to remove the page. I am in USA. SFBA.

There are plenty of other pages on this website, that are more conventional.

Some people say it's about expansion.

Some people say it's about perfection.

Some people pretend the choice does not matter.

It does matter.

How Redditors Exposed The Stock Market | The Problem With Jon Stewart - has a nice diagram(s) (and overall good explanation of what was happening).

Infinitesimal: How a Dangerous Mathematical Theory Shaped the Modern World.

Do only what only you can do - Dijkstra

Their book is frequentist book

Cornell is a monopoly

Also Wolfram. And most important of all is "The Unfinished Game" by Keith Devlin.

Wiener equation was a joke. His filters were ok.

Fourier vs Bayes

Apr 10 2023.

Markov *and* Bayes > Bayes ( but Fourier still holds somehow )
