Hi Fediverse 👋
let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial
Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔
As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂

WHAT PEOPLE THINK ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ARE: wow.... we're creating... new life........
WHAT ETHICAL ISSUES IN AI ACTUALLY ARE: techbros worshiping the almighty algorithm, not caring to look at what bad patterns the machines are picking up (racism, sexism, etc) and how to avert them, and overreliance on neural networks meaning that said algorithms are treated as magical black boxes where nobody wants to (or can, really) point out exactly how the equation works (and why it may be faulty)
Dad's new favorite toddler game:
Toddler is told a short story about a dog, walking home with its dad, finding its dog bed and then falling asleep.
Toddler says "vov vov" (danish dog sound).
Dad says "that's right, and now the dog goes to bed".
Toddler makes fake snoring sounds.
Dad says "yes, that's good, now keep practicing you're a sleeping dog".
Dad goes to the next door room to let toddler have some space.
--- 5 minutes later ---
Toddler is fast asleep.
